I am in Atlanta this weekend for the wedding of two dear friends! The bride has exceptional taste so I can’t wait to see what she has pulled together for her big day! The wedding reception will also feature some of the couples’ favorite vegan dishes so I am also looking forward to my first truly vegan meal.
When in Atlanta, I also like to visit some of my favorite college hangouts and restaurants. Virginia Highlands, Decatur, North Druid Hills are on the must see list today. I read Buckhead had quite the makeover so I antipathetic a stop through there and the new Westside Provisions District. My last trip here was in 2009 for my college roomies wedding and so much has changed since that time. At least I can still find my way around Georgia Tech’s campus! Go Jackets!!
I am also planning some local weekend travels in California and want to review Emily’s list of Cupcakes and Cashmere. She lives in LA and knows where to eat, drink, sleep and more in her feature My Guide to LA. I plan to print, review, highlight, and laminate her list!
Here are some ideas for your weekend:
1. Celebrate National Macaron Day! Tomorrow, Saturday, 31 May is a day that is near and dear to my heart! Now this day does not specify French or Coconut Macarons, but if you know me I am obsessed with the French Macaron. As if I needed an excuse to eat them, but I thought I would share the good news! Indulge!! Which is your favorite variety?!
2. Keep cool and catch a new movie! Grab a hot date, some popcorn and watch Maleficent at the theaters this weekend. Or you can also enjoy the new X-Men flick, Heaven Is For Real, or Million Dollar Arm.
3. Have a backyard party! Invite your friends over, have a lovely BBQ, create a water area for the kids like a fountain or Slip ‘N Slide, and water balloons! Adults can participate too. Once everyone is drying off and before nap time, create an ice cream dessert bar with whipped cream, candies, and hot fudge!
Wishing everyone a great weekend!
