  • The Allman Brothers Band Museum at the Big House
    “This was a crazy, insane house … basically a frat house, but to the 10th degree,” Conan O’Brien said of The Big House while interviewing Gregg Allman in May 2012. “Now, they’ve turned that house into a museum!” he marveled. The talk-show host and his legendary musical guest joked about how much work that must have taken. “To refurbish it, man, you just about have to jack that one up and roll a new one under it,” Gregg said, chuckling. Although the three-story, Tudor-style building has certainly been cleaned and restored, it’s still the same place where many founding members of The Allman Brothers Band—with their family and friends—lived and played their iconic music. Drawn to Macon by a contract with Phil Waldren Records, Berry Oakley and his wife, Linda, first rented the Big House in 1970, less then a year after the band formed. Guitarist Duane Allman and his brother Gregg joined the couple, and soon a rotating cast of characters was coming in and out of the high-ceilinged rooms. Past the first floor’s parlor and through the french doors, a sunroom became the music room where the band would, in Berry’s words, “hit the note,” and the kitchen and backyard became fertile spaces for songwriting. But tragedy struck the band before long: in 1971, Duane died in a motorcycle accident, and in 1972, Berry died in another. The remaining family moved out soon after. Today, the Big House showcases Duane’s 1975 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop guitar—which he played with more than half the time—and other instruments, handwritten song sheets, gold records, show contracts, and other band memorabilia. The room where Duane lived is preserved the way it was when he lived there in the 1970s complete with a leather jacket hanging in the closet.

  • Run or Dye
    Run or Dye is making race running a little more colorful, one major city at a time. This 5K is divided up into four separate courses of varying lengths, each designated by a separate color?which also reflects the color of safe, eco-friendly powered dye the participants get splashed with. At the end of the race, they'll cross into the aptly named Dye Zone?a polychromatic free-for-all where fluorescent color is thrown freely from all sides, allowing runners to splash their fellow runners or get colorful revenge on their friends, family members, and any cranky art-history teachers that happen to be walking by. Unlike some races that rank runners by time, Run or Dye only measures success in color and fun. While the safe-to-eat dyes should wash out of clothing, runners are encouraged to wear things they don't mind getting dirty, preferably in white, gray, or another neutral color to give the dyes maximum visibility.
