Eat, drink and be merry (or tragic, it’s your call) with a half-price gift card to the New American Shakespeare Tavern. The Tavern, on Peachtree Street in Midtown Atlanta, is unlike any other theater in town.

Check out the British pub menu and a broad selection of Irish ales and premium brews. Macbeth runs through May 4, followed by The Comedy of Errors (May 9-June 1) and Antony and Cleopatra (June 7-29). So come, grab a pint and nourish your soul. You get a gift card valued at $50 for only $25. Please note: Gift cards can only be used in person. No website sales available.

Georgia’s festival “season” actually encompasses much of the year, but none is as sweet as spring, when snow, ice and wind give way to dogwood and magnolia blossoms.
Let us take you on a tour of Dublin — its streets, pubs, theater and literature. Even its leprechaun lore.
Buckhead, once known as Irbyville, has a big-city vibe way beyond its famous malls.
As spring sneaks into the city, plants are popping up at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, growing, woven into sculptures of every size and en masse in blankets of flowers. Get ready!
The rhyming writer, a cartoonist who illustrated his own books, will be celebrated Monday at Imagine It! The Children’s Museum of Atlanta. He would have turned 110 on Sunday, March 3.
A former warehouse district tucked under the Brooklyn Bridge — and known by the name DUMBO — has become one of New York’s more intriguing spots.
Midtown is Atlanta’s heart, a place known for good food, great theater and exuberant nightlife.
“Maurice Hines Is Tappin’ Thru Life” at the Alliance is a sure thing, but we dare you to also take an adventure this weekend.

With the number of Spanish-speaking households in Gwinnett County, it makes good sense for Aurora Theatre to put Spanish-speaking artists onstage and behind the scenes. That’s what it does with its Teatro del Sol.
Last call for Out of Hand’s “Blackberry Winter” (this go-round) and Theatrical Outfit’s much-praised “Dividing the Estate.” Maurice Hines keeps on tappin’ at the Alliance, meanwhile, with the timely, truth-based “Letters to Sala” and the Atlanta Opera’s “The Barber of Seville” coming up.
Looking to get your culture on this weekend? Here’s a place to start.
Theatrical Outfit’s 2014-15 season will “spotlight voices that will spark important conversations about class, education, faith, the stars and our places in the world,” says Executive Artistic Director Tom Key.
Say hello to “Dividing the Estate” (Theatrical Outfit), “Macbeth” with Veronika Duerr (Shakespeare Tavern), “Annie” (Atlanta Lyric) and “Maurice Hines Is Tappin’ Thru Life” (Alliance). Say goodbye to “Samantha Brown” (Aurora). If you’re in a classical mood, the ASO offers short and long programs.
