It's time to plan your weekend. Here are our picks for things to do in Atlanta this weekend. 

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.

  • Atlanta Hawks vs. Brooklyn Nets, Friday
    Now that college football is over until fall, the Atlanta Hawks could use some TLC. The NBA season is long, so the Hawks just might, to borrow a phrase from the Atlanta Falcons, rise up. And, of course, basketball is just plain fun to watch. 

  • Fernbank After Dark 2018 Kickoff Party, Friday
    Science experiments for adults? You bet. Find your inner Albert Einstein as you listen to live music, tour the exhibits at Fernbank and maybe take in a flick on the giant screen. Leave the kiddos at home.

Joleen's Picks
Joleen is a work-at-home mom to a 5-year-old son. She and her family live in the 'burbs but enjoy regularly traveling into the city for family-friendly fun and adventure.

  • The Lion King, through Jan. 28
    Sure to delight the entire family, the much-anticipated production of "The Lion King" lands at the Fox Theatre this month. Breathtaking costumes, action, dance and a memorable musical score that includes Oscar-winning songs from Elton John and Tim Rice. You won’t want to miss this production.

  • Go Ice Skating, all weekend
    If you're going a little stir crazy and need something fun to do with the kiddos this weekend, why not bundle up and go ice skating. Several seasonal skating rinks are still open for winter sliding, twirling and fun.

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

  • Scott Antique Market, all weekend
    The Atlanta Expo Center hosts the world's largest indoor antique show every second weekend of the month. With 3,500 exhibit booths of antiques and collectibles, who knows what your treasure hunt will find.

  • Scandal! O4W Ski Resort, Saturday
    The improv soap opera continues at Dad's Garage this weekend with a hilarious cast of characters who reside in "Little 5 Peaks" (the new mountain in Old 4th Ward, haven't you heard?).
