Kick off the Holiday Season with A Christmas Carol at the Alliance Theatre.
Ba! Hum Bug!  Or, maybe not.  Kick off your Holiday Season with Scrooge and the gang at the Alliance Theatre on Saturday.  From

"Now in its 22nd smash year, the most heartwarming story of the entire season comes to life when Ebenezer Scrooge discovers the true meaning of Christmas over the course of one fateful evening. Join the cast of this holiday favorite and journey through Dickens' beloved tale while meeting favorite characters along the way like the generous Mr. Fezziwig, the selfless and beautiful Belle, and the adorable Tiny Tim."

It's on at the Alliance Theatre at 8p.  Tickets are $30-$50 for adults, $21 - $35 for kids.  We recommend the $50 prime seats.  You get a great view of the performance.  Get your tickets here.

Here's what you do Saturday

First:  The Atlanta Food Truck Park and Market is hosting its Holiday Art and Gift Market.  Head on over to the park on Howell Mill and pick up some presents and decorations.  Of course, sample from the huge array of food trucks too.  Check out this video on how the park got established.  Pretty cool, man.  Figure on $15 for lunch and it's up to you what you spend on Christmas gifts.  Just try to avoid re-gifting fodder! :-)

Second:  How about a round of golf?  It's a holiday weekend.  Sun is out.  Temperatures a bit nippish, but you can handle it.  Just consult the beer cart if you're getting too cold.   Golfnow has a great site for finding discount tee times.  Find it here.    Check out the time available on Saturday as of 1Pm. 
We like to recommend sugar creek for a fairly inexpensive round in a picturesque course.  Figure on about $45 per person for the round, plus $10 per person for the beer.

Golf Now gives you discount tee times all over Atlanta all the time. 

Third:  Nap time.  A round of golf will take it out of anyone.  Take a nap and recuperate, my friend.
Fourth:  A little bite to eat at South City Kitchen.  A good Sunday Dinner is in order.  Try South City Kitchen in Midtown.  They bring great food, great service, and great ambiance.  Try out the Heirloom Tomato and Watermelon salad to start, and follow up with the shrimp and red mule grits.  So good!  $40 per person.

The shrimp and grits at South City Kitchen is a classic!
Finally:  A Christmas Carol.  God Bless us.  Every one...

    Carbon Footprint:

    Today's full day plan can take up to about 34 miles of driving, if your home base is midtown Atlanta.  The 34 miles equates to about 24 pounds of carbon dioxide, or the carbon sequestered by about 5 sq feet of forest.  Calculations are based on the U.S. EPA's green house gas equivalencies calculator.  

    34 miles of driving
    24 pounds of carbon dioxide
    5 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
