1. House Proud: If you’ve always wanted to snoop around other people’s homes, you have two opportunities this weekend: The Ansley Park Tour of Homes and Lake Clare Home & Garden Tour. Check out eight historic homes designed by Neel Reid in Ansley on Saturday and Sunday, while Lake Claire residents open their doors and gates for tours, followed by some good food and entertainment on Saturday.
3. Burgers & BBQ: If you love to eat, then this weekend will go right to your waistline. The Battle of the Burgers is Saturday in Virginia Highland’s John Howell Park from noon to 4 p.m. as local restaurants compete to see who serves up the best hamburger, with attendees getting to taste and vote. Over in Atlantic Station, the Atlanta BBQ Festival is Saturday from noon to 8 p.m. with ‘que and stew from Atlanta’s favorite joints. There’s also music, prizes and a kid’s area.
5. Put down the Kindle: The AAUW Book Sale continues this weekend at Perimeter Mall with more than 75,000 gently used books for sale for super cheap. Sponsored by the American Association of University Women, the sale raises money for the organization’s scholarships and grants program.
