Editor's Note: Given the snowy ice blanket that has descended upon our fair city, we encourage our fair readers to double-check the status of the following events before venturing out into the world. That is, unless you have one of these bad boys – if that's the case, could we hitch a ride?
Saturday, February 1, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Atlanta Jugglers Festival
Yaarab Shrine Center, 400 Ponce de Leon (Poncey-Highland)
Surprised to learn that Atlanta has its own juggling festival? What if we told you that it's been going on for more than three decades? Join this gathering of the jugglers for their 36th annual festival, complete with unicycle polo, late-night cabaret and, of course, plenty of juggling.

Atlanta Chinese Lunar New Year Festival
Chinese Culture Center, 5377 New Peachtree Rd. (Chamblee)
Fact: the Chinese know how to celebrate a new year. Namely, with singing, dancing, and delicious snacks. Ring in the Year of the Horse with traditional Chinese performances and festivities, such as a dragon dance, Chinese folk songs, and more. (And, notably, no need to don uncomfortable cocktail attire. Take that, Times Square.)
