It's here. The weekend, that is. Here are our ideas for things to do.

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.

  • Sweet Water Taste, Friday, July 12 through Sunday, Aug. 18
    What to do? Well, laugh for one thing. This is the story of a black undertaker who consults his white cousins about being buried in the family cemetery. It's a comedy. It's a drama.  

  • You Look Like: A Comedy Roast Battle, Saturday, July 13
    Three rounds. Six comedians. Every joke begins with, "You Look Like." Nuff said.

Joleen's Picks
Joleen is a work-at-home mom to a 6-year-old son. She and her family live in the 'burbs but enjoy regularly traveling into the city for family-friendly fun and adventure.

  • Matilda, the Musical, through Sunday, Aug. 4
    Direct from the Broadway stage, the favorite children’s story of Matilda will grace the stage as a family-friendly musical at The Legacy Theatre for a limited run.

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

  • Attack of the Killer Tomato Festival, Sunday, July 14
    Chef Ford Fry's celebration of local flavor returns for its 11th year, this year at JCT. Kitchen & Bar at Westside Provisions District.

  • Atlanta Comic Con, all weekend
    Geek out with thousands of other fans to all things sci-fi, fantasy, anime and gaming. (And comic books. Can't forget the comic books.) Plus, expect appearances and autographs with Val Kilmer, Bonnie Wright, Ryan Hurst and more.
