Created by the Lookingglass Theatre Company from Chicago, Lookingglass Alice offers an acrobatic and dizzyingly playful take on Lewis Carroll's double-dose of Victorian childhood wonder, Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. As Alice falls, floats, and flies across Wonderland's chessboard on her way to becoming Queen Alice, chairs pop up from the floor, Tweedledee and Tweedledum tweedle-tumble across the stage, our heroine voyages across a swirling sea of blue, and much more. The remarkable cast of five often seems like a bursting circus of 40 as they switch costumes, juggle, ride unicycles, walk on stilts, and defy logic as often as they defy gravity.
That Pottery Place Studio’s shelves brim with hundreds of unfinished ceramic pieces, each ready to blossom with a completely unique bouquet of colors and designs. Animal-painted plates sit propped alongside decorative birdbaths, planters, coffee mugs, and owl figurines designed to scare pigeons away from the china hutch. Guests can throw their creativity at these 3D canvases using the studio’s stencils, brushes, sponges, and dozens of glazes. Staff members make the rounds sharing tips on technique and helping sort through idea books with painters during open studio time.

Zoo Atlanta set up shop in 1889 after a traveling circus rolled into town and stayed indefinitely. Financial hardships had driven the circus owner bankrupt, leaving a flood of out-of-work circus performers and animals without anywhere to go. With the help of generous donations from concerned residents, Atlanta adopted the animals and converted a part of Grant Park into what is now Zoo Atlanta.
Since those early days, many animals have found their home at Zoo Atlanta, from elephants and tigers to gorillas and zebras. All in all, more than 1,500 animals currently roar and romp in their respective enclosures, meeting up once a night to dish over visitors’ summer outfits.
A typical journey through the zoo begins at Flamingo Plaza, from which visitors can choose one of two paths: They either take the left path and come face to face with elephants, warthogs, and lions, or they can choose the right and find themselves amid a flurry of exotic birds and excitable children at the KidZone playground. Visitors can walk at their own pace and follow their own path, still watching otters play, the nation's largest zoological collection of gorillas and orangutans swing through trees, and pandas pretend like they don’t care people are watching them sleep.
