TGIF: Need Fun???

With Hurricane Irene bearing down on much of the Eastern Coast of the U.S. and evacuations are being suggested from North Carolina up to New Jersey, now’s a great time for this weeks’ TGIF. There are quite a few things going on around the country and around the world for these good people to do. In my backyard, Atlanta, GA, the weekend gets kicked off with the Atlanta Comedy Jam at the Apache Café tonight. Doors open at 8:00 pm, show starts at 9:00pm. Saturday features the Grant Park Summer Shade Festival in Atlanta’s Grant Park. With two large Artist Markets, two stages of live music, plenty to eat and drink and special areas for kids, Summer Shade offers a fun way to enjoy the last days of summer. This is an all day event; from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm. Sunday features 2 concerts for Atlantans. Morehouse College will host the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Concert and Tribute, featuring Eddie Levert, Dennis Edwards and Johnny Gill. Show begins at 7:30 pm. Also, Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow will be performing at the Lakewood Amphitheatre; show begins at 7:00 pm. There are a host of other artists on tour right now all across the country. Britney Spears, Lil’ Wayne, Taylor Swift, and others are in a city near you, click here for other tours and ticket info. It is Week 3 in the NFL Preseason and teams are gearing up for the start of the regular season. And for those looking for a retreat, especially from Irene, and have weekend deals to Las Vegas, NV and Cancun, Mexico. How do YOU plan to spend the weekend? Relaxing on the beach or traveling to the city? Taking in a concert or curling up with a good book? Let us know what’s on your agenda. Better yet, let’s help the good folks evacuating from Irene’s grasp. Whats going on in your city this weekend? Let’s hope no one ends up being this guy:
