Hey guys! Happy Earth Day! Plant a tree or don’t litter or something. If you were up way early this morning you could have helped out at Woodruff Park planting flowers and cleaning up the park, but who’s got time for that at 8am on a Tuesday… They should have done it Sunday when it was beautiful outside.
Fry Guy Fries from Villains Wicked Heroes were amazing last night, you should check out their website, look at those ringing celebrity endorsements!
Argosy (470 Flat Shoals Ave) let Mother Earth Brewery and Terrapin Beer Company take over their taps today for Earth Day, featuring the Mother Earth’s Park Day Pilsner and Triple Overhead and Terrapin Tree Hugger and RecreationAle. Every beer you buy comes with a raffle ticket for Mother Earth and Terrapin goodie bags, and all proceeds go towards Trees Atlanta.
Victory Sandwich Bar (340 Church St) up in Decatur has Bikes and Beers tonight from 5:30, an informal gathering of bike commuters, or anybody who’s thinking about becoming a bike commuter. If you haven’t had the sandwiches from Victory, you’re missing out, they’re all $4 and they’re all amazing!
SweetWater Brewery (195 Ottley Drive) has Ales for Tails Spring Social tonight at 6pm, $40 entry fee gets you bottomless SweetWater beer, food from local restaurants, and live funk music from Lingo. The Atlanta Humane Society will be there with pets up for adoption too. How many drunk people are going to end up with puppies and kittens before the night is over? The event is pet-friendly so you can bring your dog along too!

If you’d like to send something nice my way as a thank-you note, how about signing up for Lyft with this link or if you’re already a Lyft user, sign up for Uber with this one! Your first ride will be free, and I’ll get some credits too so I can afford to keep going out to stuff! Thanks!!
I’m hoping I’ll find the time to go to Dan Deacon and Warehouse tonight, I’ve seen Warehouse a bunch of times before and they always put on a great show, but Manuels sounds great too, and Smoke Ring BBQ if you’ve got the money. Let me know what you guys get up to and what turns out to be fun!
