Is upliftment a word? Probably not. But, get ready for some of it! Go check out Celtic Woman at the Atlanta Symphony Hall at 8. Celtic Woman is an all-female musical ensemble conceived and assembled by Sharon Browne and David Downes, a former musical director of the Irish stage show Riverdance. They play a mixture of songs that ranges from traditional Celtic tunes to modern songs. Check out this video.
You can get tickets at ticketmaster. They range from $45 to about $115. Let's splurge for good seats today. Get the orchestra seats, right up front. ($ - $115 per person).
Here's what you do on Friday:
First: Breakfast. Make an omelette. Did you know that chefs in France are required to master the preparation of omelettes as one of their main tests? I've even heard tell that they have competitions in their farm houses on the weekends to see who can make the best one. Now, I could mess around and try to give you directions myself. But, why do that when you have Julia Child? Check out her 13-page, remarkably detailed instructions. Complete with diagrams, you're good to go. It get's a little tricky with the flipping part, but keep trying. You'll get it. ($ - $5 per person).

"On Paper" is an exhibition of works on paper featuring a diversity of media, techniques, subjects, eras, types of presentation, points of view, and sizes--from tiny to monumental. Historical and contemporary artists in a variety of media, including, paintings, drawings, prints, and photography. It's on at Thomas Deans Fine Art in Miami Circle. Gallery is open at 11. ($ - $Free).
