As I sat inside the Georgia Dome press box before kickoff of the Falcons first preseason game of the 2010 season, there was an undeniable sense of energy and excitement stemming from the 65,726 fans in attendance—and this was just a preseason game.

Theatrical Outfit and Theater Emory something in common this year, as both companies use the Pulitzer Prize as a unifying theme for their 2010-2011 season.

Theatrical Outfit applies the Pulitzer label a bit loosely. Its season began last week with A Confederacy of Dunces, artistic director Tom Key's adaptation of John Kennedy Toole's Pulitzer winning novel. It ontinues Jan. 26-=Feb. 20 with...

One of Atlanta's most consistent performers for the last decade, comedian Dan Mengini has jokes, on jokes, on jokes. Nicknamed "The Machine" for his rapid-fire delivery, Mengini's shows move at a frenetic, but entertaining pace. While most of the UGA alumni's material is a family-friendly mix of one-liners and funny stories about his Italian father, Mengini is a big draw on college tours, and...

Clearly I was out of mind to think that last Saturday's Surreal Soiree, an opening party for Dali: The Late Work at the High with a wearable-art fashion show by local artists including Sister Louisa, R.Land, Andy Moon Wilson, Lucha Rodriguez, Cooper Sanchez, Kelly Teasley, and HC Warner among others, would be low key.

The Braves (64-47) managed to take three out of four from the visiting San Francisco Giants (63-49) over the weekend and in doing so, improved their league-best home record to 39-15.

However, another mundane performance from Atlanta closer Billy Wagner prevented the Braves from the four-game sweep and a more comfortable three-game division lead.

Wagner hasn't been quite as dominant of late...

The Braves won their first series in nearly two weeks on Wednesday night after a 8-3 victory over the New York Mets and have miraculously maintained their division lead in the N.L. East.
