3 Fun things


Enchanted Princess Party Luncheon at The Melting Pot

Countless honorary princesses will don their tiaras while trick-or-treating on Halloween. Although many would be content simply gorging on paper-wrapped sweets, parents can take it a step further two days early and let their tots dine like royalty. Fairy tale princesses and fairies spring from the pages of storybooks and rub elbows with guests during this afternoon meal. The three-course dinner includes a cheese fondue appetizer, an entree and a chocolate fondue dessert. Kids can chase bites with sips from non-alcoholic mocktails. Each table scores a digital photo, and every child takes home a surprise souvenir. A portion of the proceeds benefit the Atlanta Ronald McDonald House. The event also takes place at the three other area Melting Pot locations in Midtown, Kennesaw and Roswell.

12:30-3:30 p.m. Oct. 29. $29 adults; $17 ages 12 and younger. The Melting Pot, 3610 Satellite Blvd. N.W., Duluth. 770-623-1290, www.meltingpot.com/duluth/specials.


Alan Morrison at Spivey Hall

Top-shelf organist Alan Morrison will be tackling some classical pieces in concert, displaying the reason for all the critical acclaim. Morrison heads the organ department at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadephia, Penn. This time the Atlanta native will be teaching a lesson with a performance. Expect to hear Bach, Franck, Vierne and more. This marks Morrison’s 12th appearance at Spivey Hall. According to his website, Morrison considers the venue “his artistic home.” Arrive early for a pre-concert talk at 2:15 p.m. Morrison’s latest disc, “Opus 76,” features the first solo recording of the Dobson organ found in Philly’s Verizon Hall.

3 p.m. Oct. 29. $30. Spivey Hall, 2000 Clayton State Blvd., Morrow. 678-466-4200, www.spiveyhall.org.
