Cockentrice One Year Anniversary
The Cockentrice, Krog Street Market, 99 Krog St.

Mmmm…. meat. Oh, excuse us, we were daydreaming about the offerings at the Cockentrice. And we just found out they’re adding swing music and a sneak peek of their new tavern menu to celebrate their first anniversary, so there’s more mouth watering meat to go around. Don’t worry, they have veggies too, and crafted cocktails, but once we get fixated on the meat, there’s no telling when we’ll come back to reality.

Bleux Stocking Society
Downtown Player’s Club, Downtown, 98 Broad St.

With regular events like Write Club and Naked City, Atlanta is becoming quite the literary town- and now finally, there’s a night just for the ladies. Spearheaded by Amy Shufflebeam and Ellaree Yeagley, Bleux Stockings Society was created to showcase the voices of Atlanta’s more marginalized writers (specifically, people who simply don’t identify as male- wherever they fall on the continuum) in an inclusive environment. Get lit, Scouts.

Stories on the Edge of Night
Highland Inn Ballroom, Poncey-Highland, 644 N Highland Ave.

The opening of the Peach State Storytelling Festival is taking place right here in our own literary backyard- a.k.a. the Highland Inn Ballroom. Scouts, this is your chance to see nine storytellers with something to say about humanity and the search for truth, and some good old-fashioned tall tales and humorous yarns thrown in for good measure. It’s high time for some tightly woven (literary) webs.

Dad’s Garage & Friends
Dad’s Garage, Old 4th Ward, 569 Ezzard St.

You already know that Dad’s Garage is settling in nicely in their new Old 4th Ward home, but did you know they’re back to doing two shows a night? Yes, just because it’s Thursday doesn't mean you can’t have a good time belly laughing at some of the rowdiest improv comedy around. Did we mention we’ve got your hookup right here?
