I'm not usually one to say "don't go to the ballpark," but this weekend may be an exception. Here is a list of events that will be going on in downtown Atlanta this weekend:
Hawks playoff games
Atlanta Dogwood Festival
Sweetwater 420 Festival
Robotics Convention at the GWCC
...and the potential wild card of traffic disruption, Freaknik!
Yep, Freaknik is back, and while there are no public events, you can bet that there will be people descending on the city in search of a party.
With that in mind, I'm getting the hell out of town (I live right in the city down by the Dome) and going to Rome for the weekend to see that talented young team play. I believe I get to watch Arodys Vizcaino start tonight and David Hale start tomorrow night, and tomorrow night's a free bobble head to the first 1000 fans!
With that said, have a great weekend, and if you go downtown, bring your patience.
