Things to do in Atlanta March 27th-30th

Looking for things to do in Atlanta this weekend? Consider this your go-to guide for wining, dining and celebrating your way through one of the greatest cities in the south. Just last week I was boasting about Spring and the weather finally acting like it should and then we get hit with a cold font. Fret not, my friends. This weekend is looking better and better by the day. The weather is honestly warming up and it brings with it plenty of fun activities for the kid in us and the kids we may have with us. Enjoy some cooking classes, with a side of margaritas or martinis. Take your kids (or the big kid in you) to see Scooby-Doo or enjoy a few benefits for some really great causes.
