As every Atlantan knows, there’s plenty going on to keep you busy.  Here’s a list of events to whet your whistle.  Check them out, get off the couch, get engaged, enjoy the summer!

Funk Fest  on May 16th at the Wolf Creek Amphitheater.  Old School, new school and just about everything in between.  If definitely gets funky but it’s far  more than that.  If you haven’t gone at least once, you need to experience it.  If you have, then I’m sure you’re already booked to go again.

Wild Heaven is celebrating one year of brewing in Avondale Estates.  They have 15 beers including a not-to-be-missed beer that is brewed in a Tequila barrel.  The cost is $25 to get in.

Holman and  Finch bring you a special event meant to expose you to multiple cultures.  Experience Ireland with the Greenspot Irish Pot Still and learn about the history of this fine whiskey.  Then travel to France in the form of another cultural favorite, and on to other countries and treats for your palate.

The Beer Festival in East Atlanta is a crowd favorite and is not to be missed.  Music, brew, food and a great crowd.  The proceeds of this event go to help a chosen charity.  Cost is $40-$85 depending on what you buy.atlanta beer festival
