Are you in need of something cool to do in Buckhead this week? Here are five events that could be just what you need for a good time.
When: May 21 at 2:30 p.m.
May is a perfect month to take in a high tea--Mother's Day and the Triple Crown races are a great excuse to get gussied up and enjoy some classy bites like zucchini pain perdu, chicken pate and Alice in Wonderland-themed treats including Queen of Hearts cupcakes and Tweedle Dee cookies. Call 404-563-7910 to make a reservation. Cost is $40 per person or $44 for sparkling wine.
When: May 22 at 10 a.m.
This class geared at three- to five-year-olds will teach kids about bird songs: how to identify common birds heard in the Atlanta area and learning what they mean when they're chirping. Event will be held rain or shine. Cost is $12 for nonmembers of the Atlanta Audubon Society or Blue Heron; $10 for members.
When: May 23 at 5 p.m.
The 2006 documentary Who Killed the Electric Car has a new follow-up about the way electric cars are coming back into favor worldwide. This showing will be preceded by displays of electric cars like the Chevy Volt and Nissan Leaf, plus a welcome by Atlanta mayor Kasim Reed and a Q&A session to follow the movie. Cost is $5.
When: May 23 at 6:30 p.m.
The Atlanta BeltLine Partnership is putting on free monthly primers about the BeltLine system and the effects it would have. If you miss this session, like if you're at the Electric Car showing above, there will be more over the summer with the same topics discussed each time.
When: May 24 at 4 p.m.
From 4 to 7 p.m., enjoy chill-tastic acoustic music from the playground at Chastain Park. A good soundtrack for playing at the park, having a picnic (maybe to celebrate the end of the school year?), you name it. It's free, too.
