    What’s happening this weekend in Atlanta?

    This weekend is the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival — a celebration of the very best in Southern food, beverages and traditions. The four-day festival will be held May 30 through June 2 in Midtown Atlanta. About 9,000 people are expected to wine and dine with some of the most respected chefs and mixologists from the South who will be hosting cooking and cocktail demos, seminars, tasting tents and panel discussions. Among them will be Chris Hastings and Frank Stitt of Birmingham, Ala.; John Besh of New Orleans; Mike Lata and The Lee Bros. of Charleston; Ashley Christenson and Scott Crawford from North Carolina; and a slew of local Atlanta talent — Asha Gomez, Duane Nutter, Gerry Klaskala, Greg Best, Kevin Gillespie, Shaun Doty and Steven Satterfield, to name just a few.

    One of the best things about the AFWF is there are tons of events and classes during the weekend so you’re sure to find plenty to fill your dance card. Thursday night, check out the PIG OUT: Tailgate Style Party at JCT. Kitchen — it’s the AFWF’s signature party featuring some of the South’s best tailgating foods from chefs Ford Fry, Joe Schafer, Derek Emerson, Brandon McGlamery, Kelly English and Chris Shepherd. $65, May 30, 7 p.m., 1198 Howell Mill Road.

    If you’d rather be somewhere with a party atmosphere, head to the Rathbun’s Watch List Party hosted by brothers and chefs Kent and Kevin Rathbun. They’ll be hosting 12 star Southern chefs and two mixologists “to watch” who’ll be serving up tasty treats and cocktails. These are the chefs the Rathbun brothers considers some of their favorite up and comers, so you know this is going to be a good time. $75, 7:30 p.m., 112 Krog St.

    If you have to choose just one event to attend, make it the tasting tents. These are where you can wine and dine your way through more than 70-plus culinary stations from restaurants, chefs and mixologists throughout the South — each rotating in and out daily. Themed tasting “trails” ensure you’ll chow down on Southern favorites like fried chicken, craft beer, barbecue, pork and bourbon.

    What are the best concert venues in Atlanta?

    One of my favorite things to do is attend concerts — and trust me, I see my fair share of live shows in Atlanta every year. The city has a number of major venues where big-name musicians tend to perform, including Philips Arena (Fleetwood Mac, June 10; Bruno Mars, Aug. 22; Rod Stewart, Oct. 19; Andrea Bocelli, Dec. 15; and Justin Timberlake, Dec. 17); Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre (Tony Bennett, May 31; Phish, July 16 and 17; The Black Crowes, July 20; The Killers, Aug. 15); Aaron's Amphitheatre at Lakewood (the Americanarama Festival of Music Featuring Bob Dylan, My Morning Jacket, Wilco and more, June 29; Depeche Mode, Sept. 12; Maroon 5, Sept. 16; and John Mayer, Sept. 27); and even Chastain Park Amphitheatre (Darryl Hall & John Oates May 30; Sting, June 10; Joan Baez and Atlanta locals The Indigo Girls, June 15; Harry Connick Jr., July 7; and Atlanta favorites Yacht Rock Review, July 20).

    But I really like the smaller venues like Eddie Owen Presents @ Red Clay Theatre in Duluth where singer/songwriters like Matthew Perryman Jones, Griffin House and Holly Williams often perform. I'm also a fan of Park Tavern's Sunday night Unplugged In The Park free summer concert series. The small outdoor venue is ideal for warm summer nights because it overlooks Piedmont Park and the Atlanta skyline — it's pretty tough to beat. Other cool spots/concert venues that are great for live music include The Tabernacle, Variety Playhouse, the Fox Theatre, Smith's Olde Bar and Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre.
