Atlanta Summer Beer Fest, 48 Hour Film Project, & Mean Girls 2 Casting Call

Hello, local readers. Once again we’re here with your weekend guide, where we share our favorite things to do in and around Atlanta and point out where you can get free stuff along the way. As always, be sure to add anything we missed in the comments.

Atlanta Summer Beer Fest

Masquerade Music Park. Saturday, 5-10pm. $25-30.

Come enjoy the local flavors of some of Georgia’s most popular breweries — Sweetwater, Terrapin and Red Brick, to name a few.  This isn’t just your run-of-the-mill tasting either; enjoy beer pong and flip cup while Stokeswood rocks out on stage. If all that isn’t enough to quench your thirst, stick around for the free after party.

The 48 Hour Film Project

Plaza Theatre. Friday, 7-11 pm; Sunday, 1-9pm. $10 individual, $55 weekend pass.

Take in these speedy works of art this weekend at the screening of The 48 Hour Film Project. Support your local talent and view all the entries when you purchase a weekend pass, and get a free t-shirt.
