Hello, Weekend! You're looking mighty ravishing...

You'll join the Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta United FC, Atlanta Track Club and Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) as they walk to raise money for MADD. Everyone will have a chance to finish on the Atlanta Falcons 50-yard line inside of Mercedes-Benz Stadium. That's pretty cool, don't you think?

  • Disney's ALADDIN 
  • Dates: Now - Sunday, September 23, 2018
  • Location: The Fox Theatre
  • Experience unbelievable sights and indescribable feelings as you see the amazing Broadway and Disney hit, ALADDIN, at the Fox Theatre. This fantastic production tells the story about that charming guy we love from Agrabah who embarks on his adventurous journey and uses "wishful" thinking to help create a future of love, suspense and, most importantly, magic. You can still grab your tickets today, but they are selling fast! You do not want to miss this. We'll be seeing it next week, and will have a full review for you!


Well, you've got plenty to choose from this weekend. Don't come to me next week and say you were bored. Enjoy it!
