Hang With The “In” Crowd
Twenty-first century architecture buffs can check off another Renzo Piano-designed art museum on the ‘ol bucket list with a visit the incredible High Museum of Art. But, what you see inside counts, too, and the High doesn’t disappoint with its June offerings. Visitors slurp up the tasty morsels of Campbell’s Soup courtesy of a Modern art master in “Andy Warhol: Prints From the Collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and His Family Foundation,” beginning June 3. And for of-the-moment fare, Spanish artist Jaime Hayon is the subject of two commissions: “Technicolor,” a vibrant installation that pairs hanging tapestries and glazed ceramic pieces, and “Merry Go Zoo,” a playful, kinetic sculpture garden. Both open June 24. 1280 Peachtree St. NE, 404.733.4400.
SWEETWATER BREWING COMPANY TAPROOM
Visit the two guys behind this Midtown craft brewery and cool down with a frosty pint, or four, poured from among the complete lineup of signature, seasonal and pilot beers. If you’re feeling restless, try a tour of the facility. 195 Ottley Drive, 404.691.2537.
SKYVIEW FERRIS WHEEL
Head downtown for a ride on the 150-foot Skyview Ferris wheel. Climate controlled gondolas protect passengers from the elements, whether skies are shot through with torrents of rain or streams of sunshine. As you might imagine from the wheel’s sheer stature, sightlines of Centennial Park and beyond are utterly amazing. Go VIP for a Ferrari-style seat. 168 Luckie St. NW, 678.949.9023.
FERNBANK SCIENCE CENTER’S PLANETARIUM
You and 499 of your closest friends can zoom through the heavens aboard the star-lit visions of the new Spitz 4k projector at Fernbank Science Center’s Jim Cherry Memorial Planetarium. The full-dome digital projection system— we’re talking a 70-foot diameter—means that the Earth, our solar system and fascinating topics like dark matter come alive. Plus, it’s much easier on the wallet than a field trip to the local cineplex for a showing of “Despicable Me 3.” 156 Heaton Park Drive, 678.874.7102.
While on a tour of SunTrust Park or at a Braves game, check out team memorabilia, such as a Henry Louis “Hank” Aaron statue, in the concourse behind home plate. 755 Battery Ave.
