44 Plays for 44 Presidents at Dad's Garage: Tuesday, November 6, 2012.

On Tuesday, celebrate Election day with 44 Plays for 44 Presidents at Dad's Garage Theatre.  44 short plays covering each of our leaders overs the centuries.  Follow it up with Four More Beers, watching election day coverage with the actors.  Start the day with breakfast at the intercontinental.  Then vote.  Then lunch at the Palm.  Dinner at the Fritti in Inman Park and then 44 Plays.  A great way to spend an Atlanta Election Day...

Here's what you do Tuesday, Nov 6., 2012
44 Plays for 44 Presidents is on at Dad's Garage.  Seems like just the right fit for the times.

On Tuesday, it's time to get presidential.  And, Dad's Garage is doing its part in this electoral season.  Go see their 44 Plays for 44 Presidents and do a little Matrix-Helicopter-Download style knowledge building about our leaders over the centuries.  

From Dad's:  
"Like the title suggests, this show jam packs a whole bunch of short plays (one about each U.S. president) into a 2-hour show. You'll laugh the whole time and then realize you actually learned stuff! (We're tricky like that.) Join in Nixon's rousing chorus of "We Love Dick!" Cower in fear as Andrew Jackson assaults the rich with his merry jug band! Strain to hear Silent Cal say anything at all! And just try not to succumb to the raw sensuality of Bill Clinton!"
Tuesday night is the Four More Beers event.  After the show enjoy election night coverage with the players and laugh and cry as the results come in.

Tickets are $24 online and $26 at the door.  $34 extra for "Fancy Pants" VIP tickets.

Here's What You Do does a new day plan every day.  Like us on Facebook below to get updates on your Facebook page.

Here's what you do Tuesday

First:  The ideal election day breakfast is pancakes.  And a really, really great place to get them is Southern Art at the Hotel Intercontinental in Buckhead.  Take a copy of the New York Times with you and enjoy them with a good pot of coffee and some OJ.  $10 per person.  Don't forget to get your parking ticket validated.

Have Election Day breakfast at Southern Art, the luxurious restaurant anchoring the Intercontinental Hotel in Buckhead.

Second: Vote.  Whoever you're voting for, get out your vote!

Third:  Lunch at the Palm!   Few do it better than the Palm.  Legendary across the country, the Palm does the best shrimp cocktails, crab cakes, and they have a not too shabby filet to boot.  Settle into one of their booths, order a glass a prosecco and the shrimp cocktail.  Follow it up with the wasabi and panko crusted ahi tuna steak. So good!  $40 per person.

Nothing wrong with Lunch at the Palm!

Third:  Take an election day nap.   It's tough getting out the vote.  Takes it outta ya...

Fourth:  Authentic Italian pizza for dinner.  It's a great idea.  Try out Fritti in Inman Park.  It's just around the corner from Dad's Garage.  They have great Pizza, and great heated patio to enjoy it.   Order a bottle of sangiovese, and order the quattro formaggi.   Four cheeses that'll treat you right.  Should be about $20 per person.

The Margherita Pizza from Fritti in Inman Park.  A lovely choice.

Finally:  44 Plays for 44 Presidents.  Four More Beers!!!  $34 per person plus $10 for beer at Dad's Garage.  Show starts at 8.

Carbon Footprint:

Today's full day plan can take up to about 20 miles of driving, if your home base is midtown Atlanta.  The 20 miles  equates to about 16 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.  

20 miles of driving
16 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
