ATLSXSWeek — It’s Here!!!

March 15, 2009

So this week I’ll attempt to take in (at least) seven shows over seven nights. A big deal for someone who’s largely become a couch potato and just doesn’t get out that much anymore. Will my allergies remain in check? Or will I succumb to too much second hand smoke and fall victim to my FORTH sickness this winter? Will I still make it to work on time? Hell, will I still make it to work at all??? Only time will tell.

Spy Magnet, my partner in crime, was cool enough to post this schedule for the week. As you can see there’s no shortage of shows this week. So hopefully we’ll see you at a few!

BUT THAT’S NOT ALL! The week concludes with a TACO TOUR. Mark and I did this last year when we got back from Austin and it was super fun. We decided then that Holy Taco has the best taco in the ATL, or at least in East ATL, or at least among the handful of restaurants where we chose to dine. So I’m excited to see (taste?) if they hold on to that title this year!
