NERDY SOUTH: Holy Thursday Batman!

Hey, what’s up! Good to see you again. So, here’s the deal…I’ve been busy as shit lately, but I’m committed to ATLtoDO and don’t wanna let this column go. I may have to cut down to just listing weekend events for a few months until I can get caught up on stuff, or hopefully find a partner that can help with the weekday events. So, if you think you might be interested in helping out, then please send an email to and I’ll get back to you right away. I’ll have the weekend edition ready by tomorrow afternoon.
