CRITIC’S PICK: This pop up celebrates the work of Edgar Allan Poe, the controversial writer from Boston known for his poetry and tales of mystery, horror and the macabre. Born in 1809, he was an early exponent of the detective fiction and science fiction genres, particularly in short story form. Poe married his 13-year-old cousin (à la Jerry Lee Lewis) and strangely died at the age of 40. The evening is described by organizers as “a chilling experience in Atlanta that brings four of his stories off the page and onto the stage as told through Poe historians while pairing them with four classic cocktails.” The venue, Blue Mark Studios, is a restored church built more than a century ago that now functions as an artists’ cooperative and a host for special events. — Kevin C. Madigan
