Where Atlanta - - WHERE CALENDAR -

Who de­cides on ran­dom #hol­i­days that are so pop­u­lar on In­sta­gram? While we may not known the rhyme or rea­son, we are on board with an ex­cuse to en­joy our fa­vorite things. Ac­cord­ing to www.na­tion­al­to­day.com, here's a short list of what's on the docket. They could be fake, but we won't tell if you don't.

AU­GUST 2 NA­TIONAL ICE CREAM SAND­WICH DAY

Head to Hon­ey­suckle Gelato in­side Ponce City Mar­ket for one of their de­li­cious ren­di­tions of the nos­tal­gic sum­mer sta­ple. Whether you choose be­tween va­ri­eties like the choco­late chip cookie with vanilla bean gelato and seasalted caramel sauce, brownie with bour­bon gelato and ap­ple cin­na­mon caramel or cre­ate your own combo, you can't go wrong.

AU­GUST 13 NA­TIONAL BOWL­ING DAY

Claim your lane at Mid­town Bowl, the go-to bowl­ing spot for At­lantans since 1960. A full ser­vice bar is also avail­able for pa­trons.

AU­GUST 16 NA­TIONAL RUM DAY
