It's time for Hotoberfest my friends!  Craft Beer to the extreme...
Craft Beers.  Food Trucks.  Bocce!  It's all there.  Head on out to one of the biggest craft beer festivals in the country on Saturday.  Hotoberfest starts at 3p on Saturday in Old Fourth Ward Park.  From the fest organizers:
"HOToberFest, featuring over 325 craft beers.  Our attendee 'judges' taste, track and rate their new favorite beers on the free SmartPhone App and then cast a vote for the best of show top three styles in two different tiers. After the event they can refer to the newly formed list of rated beers and seek them out to enjoy again. 
Come out to the beautiful 4th Ward Park early to get a wristband and enjoy food from some of Atlanta's best Food Trucks, free lessons from Atlanta Bocce League, Corn Hole competition sponsored by Fulton Co. Animal Rescue and a photo competition in the Majestic Photo Booth, again FREE all day!!  Also learn more about our non-profit partners that helped make it all happen and to whom 100% of the proceeds is donated."

Here's what you do Saturday

First:  How about a little brunch to get you goin'.   South City Kitchen's chicken and waffles is exactly what you need.  They have great ambiance.  They have a killer bloody Mary.  Go enjoy!  $25 per person.

South City Kitchen brings some great brunch to the table on Saturdays.

Pick up a bouquet of fall blooms at Candler Park Flower Mart.

Third:  It's beer time.  Sampling starts at 3.

Fourth: Nap time.  You know you're gonna need it!  Recharge time.

Fifth:  Curtis Salgado is playing at Blind Willies.  One of the best harmonic players you're likely to ever see.  From Blues Revue:
"Salgado is one of the most down-to-earth, soulful, honest singers ever, and his harmonica work is smoking."

Carbon Footprint:

Today's full day plan can take up to about 14 miles of driving, if your home base is midtown Atlanta.   In fact, it's a rare one where you could probably get around with taxi alone for not much dough!  The 14 miles  equates to about 12 pounds of carbon dioxide, or the carbon sequestered by about 3 sq feet of forest.  Calculations are based on the U.S. EPA's green house gas equivalencies calculator.  

14 miles of driving
12 pounds of carbon dioxide
3 square feet of forest would be required to sequester this carbon.

Wonder why a gallon of gas (about 6 pounds) generates 20 pounds of green house gas?  Check out this article at
