Monstrous Truck Action This Weekend in the Georgia Dome

The Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam features everyone’s favorites, from the Gravedigger to Gunslinger, Madusa to Monster Magic, you can count on a truckin’ good time!

Long Live the King

The most important thing about this weekend? It’s Elvis’ birthday, a-thankyaverymuch.

The best way to celebrate? Elvis Royale at the Variety Playhouse, 1099 Euclid Ave NE. Doors open at 7:30 this Saturday, and you can expect a mighty blast of big-band Vegas glitz. Perfect homage to the man who brought rock-and-roll to the masses.

Elvis Royale featuring Kingsized & Dames Aflame

Count on Big Mike Geier and his Kingsized Rock ‘n Roll Orchestra, along with The Dames Aflame Dancers, promise to provide more birthday-celebration force than an Elvis spin-kick.
And if you’re looking for king-sized deals on great apartments in Atlanta, you know DDA will love you tender.

A Deluxe Christmas Eve Dinner

Looking for a lavish way to fuel up after all that last-minute shopping? Treat yourself to a five-course meal in Paces88 at the St. Regis in Buckhead.

It’s a departure from our usual pub-food favorites, but we figure this time of year, a little over-the-top celebration can’t be bad. $115 gets you the food and all the requisite wine pairings.

Sound appetizing? Check out the menu here.

Tonite! Have Yourself a Zombie Little Christmas

Looking for a scary spin on this typically festive season?  Head to Diesel Filling Station tonight for the Zombie Santa Walk.

Here are the gory details:

Holidays have you seeing red? Embrace the horror of the season during the Zombie Santa Walk, which will get started at Diesel Filling Station in the Highlands.

Come dressed as, yes, a Zombie Santa, elf, reindeer or one of St. Nick’s many other undead helpers. The evening will include music from DJ Shoe.

Need help with makeup? Show up early for help adding the best in gore to your costume.

As you already know, zombies have quite an appetite, so we’ll be collecting food for the Atlanta Community Food Band during the event. But instead of brains, please bring canned goods.

Show up with 10 or more cans and you’ll get a free shot. And there will be drink specials ($3 shots and $5 cocktails) for everyone in costume.

And if you want a deal on a new apartment in Atlanta that doesn’t put your bank account in the dead zone, make sure you check out DDA!

Ho, Ho . . . Speedo?

We might expect to see Santa constantly clad in red-and-white regalia (in fact, it’s probably the preferred state of affairs). But this Saturday, you can spot Santa-eque sprinting along clad in little more than a set of festive briefs.

For those of you who want to combine Yuletide celebration with the chance to dash about in holiday-themed swimwear, then you’ll appreciate the Atlanta Santa Speedo Run.

And if you’re not already signed up for the run, seeing St. Nick in his skivvies certainly makes a great spectator sport.

Get to the Hudson Grille in Midtown by 2 p.m. to catch all that dashing.

This Saturday, Things are Getting Hairy in Atlanta.

We mustache what you are doing this weekend.

Might we suggest the first-ever Battle of the Beards? This fuzzy showdown is taking place this Saturday at the Highland Ballroom Lounge and welcomes all contenders whether your facial hair is biblical or beatnik.

In addition to providing a competitive platform for Atlanta’s best whiskers, it will feature DJs, standup comedy, live music and a full bar.

Top Chef standout Kevin Gillespie will judge the battle. Expect the fur to be flying.Of course, if you want a smooth deal on a new apartment that won’t shave your budget, may we suggest DDA?
