Summer Sun and Fun

It's almost the end of the week, and yet another early-summer weekend full of events is upon us!

A few quickie reminders about two main things you got going for ya this weekend if you are looking for some sunshine fun. That is, if you don't hunker down poolside to catch some rays instead. Which is also totally awesome - enjoy :)

Saturday and Sunday - The Virginia Highlands Summerfest!
I know you hear me talk about how "Oysterfest is my favorite festival," but seriously, SummerFest is probably tied for #1, and for totally different reasons. Art, Dave FM live music, street food (gyros, yum!) and house parties all combine for a hot weekend in the sun. Prepare to sweat (don't worry, everyone else is soaked, too) as you meander the streets for the day. I will be there on Saturday, so keep a lookout for this Betty!

See The Quick and Dirty Dirty's post from this week for even more details. Lindsay and I literally ran into each other last year at the Fest at a random house party on Virginia Ave. Hoping for the same luck this year - they are so fun!
Sunday - Pints for a Purpose
For a refresher, see either my post from last week OR the fabulous post Lauren wrote up at The Q+DD, too. Those ladies are so fab! Thanks Lauren for helping to spread the word.

Tickets are now $30 and include 3 raffle tickets, a custom Shirlock Foundation pint glass and fantastic Red Brick Beer. We have some great raffle items up for grabs, including a set of 4 tickets to the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, a Coach Paul Johnson (GT) autographed football, Southern Proper ties and local restaurant gift certificates. Tex's Tacos is joining in the fun for the afternoon, too. 

Enjoy the sunshine either way, friends!! Thanks for your support on the Shirlock Foundation!
