4 things to do in Atlanta today: Sweeney Todd at Actor’s Express, Chicken and Waffles

Four things to do around Atlanta on Wednesday, Feb. 17:

Join in a twisted tale of lust, murder, revenge and some really weird meat pie recipes at Sweeney Todd showing at Actor's Express in the King Plow Arts Center. Show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $39 for adults, $36 for military/seniors and $22 for students. [This isn't the only show in town. If you have a hard time deciding between multiple options, then view this list at your own discretion.]

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.]

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!]

Let your children learn about Martin Luther King Jr. by walking in his footsteps. Visit Dr. King's childhood home then follow the field trip up with a visit to Ebenezer Baptist Church. [Finish your exploration at the Center for Civil and Human Rights. Take advantage of this insider's guide before you go.]
