Music, boisterous crowds at eateries and a plethora of residents on a stroll are usually a sign it’s nearly summertime in Midtown.

The coronavirus pandemic has changed that, but mixed-use development Colony Square is looking to invigorate the spirits of those who live, work, and play in Midtown with a series of weekly events with enforced social distancing, according to a news release.


Starting Thursday, Colony Square will offer “Lunchtime Live,” a weekly groove session where attendees can grab a to-go lunch from one of the property’s restaurants and listen to live music, according to the release. Local band Lilac Wine will perform at the first event, scheduled for 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Other events hosted by the mixed-use development include a weekly breakfast beginning Friday, July 10 at 7:30 a.m. and a 45-minute digital yoga session led by Dancing Dogs Yoga, according to the release.

The virtual yoga event will debut on Colony Square's IGTV at 9 a.m. Saturday, according to the release. Participants are encouraged to donate $10 to one of three suggested charities: The Center for Women's Wellness, the At-Promise Youth and Community Center and the Metro Atlanta Mutual Aid Fund.
