Catch the Emory Youth Symphony Orchestra at the Schwartz Center for Performing Arts for free at 8 p.m. [Afterwards hit up Whiskey Wednesday at The Pinewood for half-off whiskey based cocktails all day.]

3. FOOD
Have a hankering for sweet and savory all mixed up in one glorious dish? Atlanta cooks up some of the best chicken and waffles around. [If you prefer your waffles without the additional protein, we've got your back. Batter up!]
