Here's what you do on Saturday:

First:  Well, it's a full day.  Race, then battle of the burgers.   To get ready for a run, we were wondering what you should eat to prepare.  Check out this article at about it.   Based on their sage advice, we say stop by Aurora Coffee early and get a bagel with peanut butter and a glass of water.  $5 per person.

Second: 5K.  Head over to John Howell Park at 8 to register.  Good luck.  Enjoy the view along the way.  $25 per person.

Third: Battle of the Burgers.  You don't have to look far.  It's at the Finish line.  In fact, you can probably find your way back to the park based on smell alone.  $25 per person.  Don't forget to give us some feedback on which burgers you thought were the best.  Comment in the comment box below.

That's the burger spirit!!

Fourth:  Ok.  It's been a long day.  You raced.  You ate.  Now it's time for  a nap.  Siesta, my friends.

Fifth:  I'm willing to bet that the burgers are still rolling around, even after your nap.  So, wait till later for dinner, and go enjoy Collin Moutlon at the Laughing Skull Lounge at the Vortex on Peachtree at 8. From Laughing Skull:
"Collin’s live stand-up, which you can catch almost every week atHermosa Comedy and Magic, is an intense and hilarious exploration of all things life."
Tickets are $15.  $25 for VIP.  Get them here.  Get them on Friday to make sure they don't sell out.

Catch Collin Moulton at the Laughing Skull Lounge at the Vortex on Peachtree at 8.

Finally:  You might be hungry again at this point.  Maybe.   Go have some dinner at Lure.  They have fantastic sea food.  Belly up to the Bar and talk to Brent.  Great guy, and maker of the "Say What!"  Our hands down fav drink over there.  Have some mussels and call it a night.  Great day my friends.  $30 per person.

Lure is a great way to finish the day.
