Diva Zone's pole-dancing lessons encourage women to embrace the beauty of their bodies while strengthening self-confidence and muscles.

The instructor-led student chefs at Edgar's kitchen prepare rotating a la carte menus of culinary classics and new creations for adventurous appetites. Each enticing incarnation includes its own selection of soups and salads ($2.95–$4.95), such as a hearty corn chowder made with sweet peas, tender potatoes, and well-mannered bacon. Seasonal entrees ($6.95–$8.95) have appeared recently as the Cajun-inspired shrimp and chicken étouffée, pan-seared pork tenderloin, or parmesan-crusted, hollandaise-smothered trout, before disappearing to usher in the next week's toothsome selection. Guests can also satiate many-layered cravings with the sandwich selection ($5.95–$8.45), which regularly envelops present and past ingredient headliners, such as red peppers, goat cheese, and baby spinach, within a bready bear hug.
From February 17–20, the sixth annual Macon Film Festival (MaGa) will flicker frames of independent and artistic films across the avid irises of movie-goers. With submissions from more than 10 countries and a gaggle of genres including narrative feature, documentary, experimental, and animation, the deciding jurors will critique scripts, scrutinize cinematography, and measure stars’ performances by their solar mass. Each poignant picture selected for the festival is showcased at one of three viewing venues: Cox Capitol Theatre, the Douglass Theatre, and the Macon Marriott City Center, each within walking distance of their fellow forums. Arrive 20 minutes early to screenings to help ensure seating, as passes do not guarantee admission.
