Atlanta Science Festival
We’re channeling our inner Bill Nye and adventuring around Atlanta in the name of science. Care to dabble in neuroscience? Want to take a deeper look at the cosmos? Go hunting for HIGGS? Play with some robots? This fest has got it all. Check out their entire event program here. (Finally, an excuse to dust off our microscopes.)

Carapace Raconteurs: War
Manuel’s Tavern, 602 North Highland Ave. (Poncey Highlands)
For so long we’ve wondered what war was good for, and at long last we have our answer – reading prompts. The raconteurs of Carapace are back with their monthly reading series, and this go-round they’re polishing up their best battle stories. (And don’t think that this will be like listening to Uncle Jim ramble on and on about his glory days – these stories are being told by the pros.)

Scene Missing Episode 8: Video Games!!
Highland Inn Ballroom Lounge, 644 North HIghland Ave. (Poncey Highlands)
Some would say that since spring has sprung it’s time to spend some time in the great outdoors. Not us – we’re too busy steering the steep curves of Rainbow Road in record time. Lucky for us, Scene Missing is back to host an evening of digital revelry with its latest edition, and it's all about Video Games. Let’s be honest, we haven’t been this thrilled since the Christmas of '98.
