Beer, Derby, Beards, Sunday – Snacking on the Weekend

Be prepared to spend the next 4 days with everyone you know.

The Reader’s Choice Awards are back and yours truly was not nominated this year. However, that means that instead of the stomach clenching pain of the possibility of this local only blog winning and then the disappointment of finding out a national website won, I will be able to sit back and watch all the action happen. What that also means is that my friends have all my attention and don’t have to spend the night feeling sorry for me. Also, no one will buy me sympathy shots. Bummer.

But all the things that make Macon great, as nominated by you, dear readers, will be out in full force, usually in their finest and ready to have fun. They will cheer when they win, laugh when they lose, and drink champagne/beer/mixed drinks like champions. Because if you’re out, you’re a winner.

Now does it mean you’re not a winner if you don’t make it to the Awards on Thursday? Maybe if that was the only thing that was going on this weekend, but you will need plenty of rest as you consider where to expend your energy this weekend. Whether you spend the obvious school night and stay out with the people most of Macon considers the best or you decide to indulge in a small park beer fest, whether you consider watching cars built by your friends racing down a very steep hill (nothing could go wrong, right?), or you decide that the music you want to hear is played by a band named KOPECKY and Sunday is the best day for it, you definitely have a lot to consider. So what’s on tap for this weekend? The big things and the small things that equal the awesome things? Check it out below!

Another WTF? Weekend: Soapbox and Bearstock and Brunch, Oh My!

Y’all.

Let me get serious here. I know you’re used to things being a certain way when it comes to events in Macon. All of these events have those certain elements. Maconites don’t do things until the last minute so those of us who are planners get stuck trying to make it all work out so that you can enjoy events. Also, there are some things that come with their own controversy – who didn’t get recognized for helping whom, who has to forfeit their registration fee because they didn’t read the rules, who has to do all the work while someone else takes the credit, etc. etc.

But Y’all… these events are HAPPENING.

This weekend has marathon written all over it. And if you try to do. all. the. things., Sunday night won’t know what hit it.
