Grand Reopening Party for Paris On Ponce
Paris on Ponce
So the vintage emporium was never actually not open, but if you haven’t been inside recently, you might not recognize the place. Still as awesomely weird as ever, Paris cleaned up its act a little and even made it possible to, you know, walk through the place. Fear not, though: the hall of curiosities is still worth getting lost in for hours. Come check out what Skip’s done with the place with some cocktails and frivolity. Info.

Sopo’s 8th Annual Broken Hearts & Bicycle Parts Fundraiser
Sopo Bicycle Cooperative
Remember that time we asked y’all to spread the word about saving Sopo? Here’s an all-out weekend extravaganza devoted to keeping the wheels turning at EAV’s co-op bike shop. Things are kicking off with a Friday night cookout compliments of PBR, Terrapin, and Red Brick, complete with DJ, burgers, brats, and veg options. Thereafter, a heated race will take place—inside the shop, on stationary bikes. It’s the first of a weekend of competitions, races, a Saturday night show at Elliott Street, a Sunday morning vegan brunch, and a scavenger hunt. Info.

Atlanta Fringe Festival Easter Art Hunt
It ain’t easy to show up the Easter bunny, but the things you’ll be searching for in this Easter hunt are much cooler than a bunch of pastel eggs. AFF has teamed up with local artists like Catlanta, Evereman, and R. Land for this free art hunt at Grant Park’s Fort Walker. Fans of Cadbury creme eggs need not apply. Info.
Deal Nearby: Boners BBQ
Saturday, March 31, 1 p.m.
Dad’s Garage Theatre
Show up for the beer, show up for the bacon, or show up for the Victorian phone sex booth. (Or the fact that Baconfest is Dad’s biggest fundraiser of the year.) Whichever tickles your fancy, you should probably do some stretches before hitting up those 1,200 pounds of swine. Info.

The Goat Farm
It’s the 44th anniversary of Georgia Tech’s student-managed radio station, 91.1 WREK FM, and they’re celebrating with much revelry and musical entertainments. The rather awesome lineup includes the Deacon Lunchbox Experience and Circulatory System. Info.

Inman Park Squirrel Census
Pay very close attention to the little acorn-grubbing, fancy-tailed rodents romping about our neighborhoods in this kinda data-driven, but also kinda-an-art-project happening in Inman Park this weekend. Shoot them a message on the Facebook page (link below) for the details on when/where to show up.
