What to Do This Weekend In: Atlanta, August 8-9, 2015

TGIF! I am so happy I can breathe for a bit this weekend. I've been hitting the ground running every since I got back from vacay nearly three weeks ago! Exhaustion aside, I've rounded up a few events that may strike your fancy when you're trying to figure out what to do and where to go this weekend in Atlanta. My goal is to add more cities to this feature. In the meantime, get check out the events below!
