Finally, it’s Friday!!! I know it’s been a short week for most of us, but that doesn’t change the fact that the weekend is finally here! Here’s a quick look into some things to do this weekend; so let’s get right into ways to take the load off.
I’m sure most people tend to forget, but September 15th is the start of National Hispanic Heritage month. With covid still running rampant in the streets, a lot of the normal festivities have been canceled for this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t go support Hispanic businesses in the meantime. Last weekend I tried some birria tacos and I’ve had them 3 times already! I love a good taco and this is one that definitely exceeded my expectations. So the first suggestion for my foodies is to go try some birria tacos at your local hispanic owned eatery!
Now I realize that everyone doesn’t like tacos, or even food as much as me. That’s why I’ve got some other weekend suggestions. As we are starting to experience some chillier weather, it’s about time we prepare for the season change. If you’re a festive person, now is a great time to start decorating for the fall. Putting up the door decor, maybe some walls decals and festive throw pillows on the sofa can really set the mood for the season coming.
We know that the weather these days is really unpredictable, but metro Atlanta, we’re supposed to be expecting storms all weekend. What better way to spend a rainy Saturday evening than with a good cozy book? I’m currently reading “Why I’m No Longer Talking To White People About Race”, and it’s a truly incredible. It details the struggle of race in Britain, which is very similar to that in America. Another good page turner for the people that like more mystical/sci-fi books is “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children”. It’s a series about a young boy on a search for the monster that killed his grandpa. Along the way, he learns about the home where his grandpa grew up and leads to all kinds of adventures. For people looking for a short read, I’d recommend “Milk and Honey”, a book of poems that’s sure to entice all readers.
Whoever you are and whatever you’re into, this weekend gives you a chance to get some things done. Even with the odd nature of the world, we can still enjoy the little things. So let’s remember to kick back, relax, and be safe this weekend as we find something to do!
