So Worth Loving Retail Launch Party – Sunday, April 3rd
So Worth Loving is a beloved Atlanta brand that initially started as an inspirational blog. Founder Eryn Erickson developed a global community of positive thinkers, supplemented by a chic online store.
So Worth Loving is officially opening a retail shop in East Atlanta Village, and will be hosting a launch party on Sunday, April 3rd. You can expect SWL merch (tees, tanks, dresses, and accessories), celebratory treats, and a few surprises!
I’ve had the pleasure of professionally working with Eryn, so I’m excited to attend and support this wonderful local brand. If you’re going to be at the event, let me know on Instagram!

Girl Scout Cookie Pop Tasting – Friday, April 8th
As a former Girl Scout, I’m particularly excited about this event at King of Pops. Next Friday, KOP will be rolling out their new Girl Scout cookie flavors – and you can get an exclusive taste for yourself!
The flavors include Trefoil Tiramisu, Samoa Coconut Caramel, Thin Mint Chocolate Chip, and Tagalong Peanut Butter Banana (seriously, yum).
Pop packs with all the flavors will also be available to purchase, so take ’em home to snack on later!

Basque in the Sun Launch Party – Sunday, April 10th
Buckhead restaurant and bar Gypsy Kitchen is starting up their spring patio series called Basque in the Sun. Each Sunday starting on April 10th, Gypsy Kitchen will transform their open-air patio into a Spanish fiesta, complete with flamenco music, paella, and 1/2 off selected bottles of wine.
If you can’t make the fun on April 10th, not to worry – Basque in the Sun will be held each Sunday at 4 pm.
Create a reminder for yourself to attend the launch party on the event’s Facebook page.
90’s Bar Crawl – Saturday, April 16th
As a proud 90’s baby, I’m just a little pumped for this 90’s themed bar crawl.
For $20, you’ll get your own bar crawl cup, access to drink specials at participating bars, and a group of rowdy 90’s kids to party with.
So far, Hand in Hand and Brewhouse Cafe have been announced as two of the bars on the tour, with more to come.
Over 7,000 people have said they’re interested in going on Facebook, so get your tickets before the prices rise into the 2000’s! (finally, a chance to use a good 90’s joke!)

Grant Park Food-O-Rama – Saturday, April 16th
Food truck festivals are one of my favorite ways to sample small bites from around Atlanta – and the Grant Park Food-O-Rama is sure to be a beautiful, tasty way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
30 food vendors are participating in this year’s event, more than 20 makers will be on hand selling their homemade wares, and live music will be rocking in the park.
You’ll still be able to sleep in on the 16th – the Food-O-Rama is being held from 11 am to 8 pm, with plenty of food and entertainment scattered throughout the day.
Purchase your tickets (just $5 for entry) to the Food-O-Rama here.
PAWS Atlanta 50th Anniversary Celebration – Saturday, April 16th
Calling all proud dog parents – the PAWS anniversary celebration is perfect for you and your pup! PAWS is a wonderful Atlanta charity that is the oldest truly no-kill animal shelter in Georgia. I’ve volunteered at PAWS before, and had a great experience playing with pups and kittens ready for their new homes.
PAWS is hosting their 50th anniversary celebration in Old Fourth Ward Park – food and beer will be available for the humans, with treats and vendors also ready to serve some pups! To end the evening, PAWS will be holding a mini “lantern parade” of their own; if you’re familiar, this is a play on the annual BeltLine parade that is a favorite of Atlanta locals.
