For lots of folks, it’s a long weekend. We’re celebrating our country’s very important independence and of course, the best way to do that is to have fun! So I’ve mapped out your weekend for you because I want to make sure you get as much fun packed into the next few days as you can. You can thank me later!
– Kick off the weekend right with your girlfriends and some hand-craftedness.
Come out to Young Blood Gallery & Boutique for Kraftwork, Atlanta’s monthly indie craft market organized by the Indie Craft Experience and Young Blood. This month features Craft Swap presented by Re-Construct DVD. Working with used materials is one of the simplest ways to green your craft. You can bring your unwanted yarn, paints, beads, DIY books, tools, or other craft supplies. Drop them off on the swap table and “shop” from other crafters’ donated stashes.
– Check out William Faulkner’s “As I Lay Dying” at the Hertz Stage at Woodruff Arts Center.
It’s playing through July 12th and my honey, Davis Petterson, is one of the live musicians participating. The play is produced by Haverty Marionettes and when I saw it last week I was so impressed with its grandeur despite its small scale. Get your tickets here.
– I’ve always been a fan of fireworks on the 4th of July. If I don’t see fireworks I sort of feel like the holiday didn’t even happen. I recommend Centennial Olympic Park … their’s really are beautiful!
– I think Sunday should be reserved for R&R…Sleep late. Go to the movies. Hang by the pool. Talk with friends. Read a book. Drink some beer. Celebrate your independence!
