Carol’s Picks
Carol is the ATL Insider’s culture vulture. If there is a new exhibit in town or a new show on the stage, Carol is the first to know about it.

  • Lunchtime Culture, Friday
    This new venture is brought to you by the Center for Puppetry Arts, the High Museum of Art and The Breman. Spend 20 minutes listening to a conversation about various aspect of culture or, sometimes, spend that 20 minutes enjoying a performance, then spend the rest of your lunchtime enjoying exhibits. This first in the series happens at the Center for Puppetry Arts. What a great idea. And, it's free.

  • Street Eats on the Square, Friday
    Meet a friend or go with office buddies, and spend lunch hour on the plaza at Colony Square chowing down on food truck food. Sounds both yummy and fun. Hey, keep your paws off my fries.

Joleen's Picks
