Jeff Beck with Buddy Guy: 5 things to do this week in Atlanta

The first week of August is here, which means the end of summer is just around the corner.

Don’t panic.

You can still make the most of the rest of the season.

Be prepared for rain this week, but still make time to lounge on The Roof at Ponce City Market or attend the Jeff Beck with Buddy Guy concert at Chastain Park Amphitheater.

If you don’t want to be outside, we have a few suggestions for indoor activities, too.

Here are our picks for things to do this week:

The Roof at Ponce City Market

From carnival-style games, priced at $1-$3, to a beer garden and a giant slide that sits behind the popular “Ponce City Market” sign, The Roof at Ponce City Market is the perfect way to unwind. Throw a giant hammer over your shoulder and see if you have enough strength to ring the bell or test your hoop skills with a basketball game while on the roof.

Whether you’re looking for a lounge with a great view for a date, or hoping to have some fun with friends, you’ll likely find Skyline Park worth the $10 admission fee (for adults). Kids under 12 can visit the park for $7, and children ages 3 and under are admitted for free.

“Chihuly in the Garden”

Glass installations from Seattle artist Dale Chihuly will return to the Atlanta Botanical Garden for an encore presentation at the end of April.

“Chihuly in the Garden” will feature 20 installations, composed of hundreds of pieces of colorful glass. Three installations were created specifically for the Atlanta exhibit.

Times vary. Through Oct. 30. Prices vary. Atlanta Botanical Garden, 1345 Piedmont Ave., Atlanta. Atlantabg.org.

“On You: Wearing Technology”

Most of us wear some form of technology on a daily basis. The Museum of Design Atlanta is looking into how these devices have become more popular and practical lately with their exhibit “On You: Wearing Technology.” Sponsored by Georgia Tech Wearable Computing Center, the exhibit will look at the people who utilize this technology as well as their creators.

The exhibit opened in June and will be open through October 2.

General admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children, ages 6-17.

Jeff Beck with Buddy Guy
