We hope you survived the Halloween hangovers because there is fall fun to be had this weekend. Here are some of our favorite picks for this Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

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.

  • Slur, through Nov. 12
    The world premiere of Slur tells the story of Daisy, who thought she was a typical middle school student -- until someone wrote a religious slur on her locker. Only at the Alliance Theatre.

  • Best of NYC Greek Film Festival in Atlanta, all weekend
    Not only do you get to see award-winning Greek films, you also get to tour the Atlanta History Center for free with your festival ticket stub. There are so many amazing exhibits at AHC so you'd best plan to make a day of it. You can even eat lunch at Souper Jenny, right inside the AHC front door. 

Joleen's Picks
Joleen is a work-at-home mom to a 3-year-old son. She and her family live in the 'burbs but enjoy regularly traveling into the city for family-friendly fun and adventure.

  • National Pumpkin Destruction Day, Saturday
    Did you know this was a thing? So fun. Take a day trip to The Rock Ranch where guests are invited to smash pumpkins in every way imaginable. Bring your own pumpkin to recycle through fun methods such as the pumpkin cannon, pumpkin bowling, the hammer smash and the 40-foot crane pumpkin drop. You can even pay to ride in a monster truck. There will be monster trucks crushing pumpkins (and cars), pumpkin archery, reverse pumpkin darts and more. Here are more fun activities for families this fall.

  • Star Wars Days, Saturday and Sunday
    Calling all LEGO and Star Wars fans. This weekend, you'll want to head to LEGOLAND Discovery Center Atlanta. Participate in build activities, a large scale LEGO Star Wars Yoda group build, a LEGO Star Wars Miniland takeover and a themed Miniland Scavenger Hunt. Everything is included in the price of admission, but if you purchase an Extra Value Ticket Package online, you'll receive an exclusive Star Wars Minifigure upon arrival, while supplies last. May the force be with you.

Tommy's Picks
Tommy is a young professional keeping an eye out for the city's liveliest happenings.

  • Dolce Italian Sunday Supper in Atlanta, through Dec. 25
    How does baked tagliolini Bolognese sound to you? Maybe some salmon Livornese with broccolini? Try these and "polenta" more delicious Italian entrees at Dolce Italian located at The Shops Buckhead Atlanta this weekend for traditional Italian dinner with a modern flair.
