TGIF

For this weeks’ TGIF, there is an aurora of love and unity. With the 10 year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, most cities are having family friendly festivities all weekend. There will be numerous memorial services and vigils in pretty much every city in this country. In Atlanta, GA, Kem, the Beach Boys and Travis Tritt will all be holding concerts this weekend. There will also be the Heroes Music Festival – “Rock and Remembrance,” an all day event to be held September 11 at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. Artists include 7th Time Down, Ashes Remain and Building 429. For more info on all of these events and more, click here.  Are you ready for some football??? A Monday night (and Sunday, and Thursday) party! The lockout put some of us on edge for a moment, but alas, Football is here! Some of the big matchups included last night’s season opener, the victorious Green Bay over New Orleans. Also look out for some big Week 1 divisional matchups – Pittsburg at Baltimore, 1:00 pm on CBS and the NY Giants at the Washington Redskins, 4:15 pm on Fox. Monday night’s double header includes New England at Miami, 7:00 pm and Oakland at Denver, 10:15 pm. For those that must get away, there are still travel deals to Las Vegas and Cancun through Expedia.com and Orbitz.com. The question now is how will YOU spend the weekend? What are YOU doing to commemorate the 9/11 10th anniversary? Who’s YOUR favorite team? Let us know what you are doing this weekend, send photos or links to your favorite activities this weekend. Whatever it is you do this weekend, do it with Love and in Unity! Those lost in the 9/11 attacks would want the same thing. TGIF!!!

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, Expedia.com and Orbitz.com 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:
