MatzoBall has been helping single Jewish people (age 21–49) matchmake, babymake, and network for 23 years at its annual parties in 11 cities. Its sponsor, the Society of Young Jewish Professionals (SYJP), has sparked more than 1,000 marriages, thousands of friendships, and even a few bar mitzvahs. This year's Atlanta event will take place at Halo, a cavernous 3,000-square-foot lounge that can comfortably accommodate the entire ATL diaspora and then some.
It didn't take long for the Atlanta Dream to establish themselves as one of the WNBA's premier organizations. The team played their first game in 2008. The Dream made their first playoff appearance a year later and captured back-to-back conference titles in the following seasons. In establishing that winning tradition, the Dream also instituted a fast-paced style of play that consistently lands them at or near the top of league in scoring and breaking the sound barrier. Of course, it doesn't hurt to feature some of the world's top players, a fact backed up when two Dream players were invited to represent their home countries in London last summer.
Most guided sightseeing tours pose severe health risks—muscle atrophy, loss of bone density, and blinding rage, to name a few—due to the lack of physical activity. You’ve probably suffered one or all of those symptoms while on these tours:
The history of today's Atlanta Braves traces back to 1876 in Boston, where the team played as the Red Stockings. In the more than 100 years since, the club lived like a nomadic tribe, claiming two World Series titles in separate cities before finally landing in Atlanta in 1966. There, they found reason to settle down, winning an unprecedented 14 consecutive division titles, as well as another World Series in 1995. Throughout the years, many of baseball's all-time greats have donned the Braves uniform, including Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth, and Cy Young. Opened in 1997, Turner Field serves as the club's home turf, relaying the action on a 29'x38' BravesVision video board as a 27' neon tomahawk menaces visiting players and vegetables alike.
Confined to plutonium-powered DeLoreans and unwieldy telephone booths, time travel is a dangerous and mischief-baiting activity. Instead, let history repeat itself as often as you can stand it with today’s Groupon: $42 gets two adults and up to four children or grandchildren (under 18) a yearlong family membership to the Fernbank Museum of Natural History (an $85 value). Individuals can purchase solo museum membership, including admission and member benefits for one person, for $30 (a $60 value).
Since banding together in 1979, the historians at Atlanta Preservation Center have helped ward off packs of angry bulldozers from more than 175 endangered buildings. Working alongside local government, businesses, and community leaders, the preservation team has saved elaborate structures including the Peters House and Winecoff Hotel. In addition, its headquarters—the 1856 Grant Mansion in Grant Park—is one of just two antebellum houses left in Atlanta and the team is currently working to restore the building to its architecturally accurate origins. When it isn’t keeping delicate treasures from crumbling, the Atlanta Preservation Center leads walking tours of historic districts and tells embarrassing stories from the days when the city’s buildings were just a bunch of baby bricks.
