Wednesday, May 28th

Hey guys! It’s International Hamburger day today. For my money Flip does the best burgers around, but Cypress has one of those doughnut-bun burgers… Also Little’s is serving food again now! Eater.com has a list of Atlanta’s Best Burgers, let me know where you guys think cooks the best burger!

Literature

The Goat Farm (1200 Foster St) has the return of Vouched Presents tonight in the Warhorse. Five writers will be sharing stories between 400-600 words about whatever they want. No cover, 8pm.

Everything Else

The Westside Provisions District (1100 Howell Mill Road) has The Sundown Series tonight! It’s an evening of art, music, film, and food, on the last Wednesday of the month. There’s multiple art galleries, live music at 6pm, and a film at sun-down, plus loads of great restaurants around the strip.

W Atlanta Midtown (188 14th Street) has Midtown Dialogues: The Urban Experience this evening at 6pm, a thought-provoking panel discussion which explores what makes a great urban experience and the essential elements of an exciting city. Members of the panel will include Anne Dennington, Kwanza Hall, Chris Martorella, Steve Simon, and John Moores (click the link for details on who they are, they’re all cool important people), plus free food and drinks!

Unfortunately I couldn’t think of any way to separate those into more helpful categories.

I’m going to the Midtown Dialogues, and depending on when that finishes I might try to make it to Landmark in time. The Sundown Series sounds really fun though, I still haven’t made it out to one of those yet. Let me know what you guys get up to and if you take a cool picture, email it to me at Cain@ATLToDo.com and I’ll put it on the blog tomorrow!

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!
