Our neighborhood, Castleberry Hill, is always hopping.
This weekend – it will REALLY be hopping. Or slithering, depending on your point of view.
The Snake Nation Arts Fest is happening this weekend. And what a day of fun it will be! Just kidding about the slithering – no snakes allowed.
The Snake Nation Arts Festival is a collaboration between the Castleberry Hill Creative/Historic District and PushPush Theater. The inaugural 2014 fest will be held on March 14 & 15. Voted best Art Stroll in the city, the Castleberry Hill 2nd Friday Art Stroll will be held on Friday the 14th from 7pm-10pm followed by the Festival on Saturday the 15th from 12-6.
We will fill the neighborhood with live music, interactive art, video shoots, dance troupes, artists markets, more live music, walking gallery tours, historic tours, movie tours, the filming of a new series by PushPush, and much more! Including walking film tours of Castleberry Hill at 12:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.
To get the most out of your time in Castleberry Hill, here is an itinerary that will keep you busy for the entire day.
10 a.m. – Have a luscious Mexican breakfast at ADios Cafe (180 Walker Street). Go ahead and order the churros. It’s okay to have dessert for breakfast and they are so good!
11 a.m. – Get a mani/pedi or a massage at Iwi Fresh (341 Nelson Street). Yolanda creates the most amazing treats for your skin from the freshest ingredients.
12:30 p.m. – Stroll down to Sweet Tooth’s Dessert Bar (335 Nelson Street) to see what Missy is baking up. Try a mini sweet potato pie. Then meet us in front of Atlanta Movie Tours and take a walking film tour!
1 p.m. – Check out Blu Bisque (323 Nelson Street) and create your own work of art. Pottery or canvas – come on in, enjoy a glass of wine and get artsy.
By now the Snake Nation Arts Fest is in full swing. Take in all the sights.
2 p.m. – Jump on our bus and take our Atlanta Film Sites Tour (327 Nelson Street). Sit back for 3 hours as we drive you all over Atlanta to show you where all the Hollywood hits were filmed.
3:30 p.m. – If you didn’t jump on our Atlanta Film Sites Tour and missed the Walking Film Tour earlier today, join us now! Grab a Coke from our shop and you’re on!
5:30 p.m. – Dinner at Smoke Ring (309 Nelson Street) will hit the spot. They make the best BBQ in town. Seriously.
6:30 p.m. – Get classy and do a wine tasting at Wine Shoe (339 Nelson Street). Pick up a bottle to take home.
7:30 p.m. – Cocktail time at Bottle Rocket! Go see Joel and ask him to mix up something special for you. Nosh on a tasty sushi roll. Maybe sing a little karaoke.
10 p.m. – Wrap up your night at Elliot Street Pub (51 Elliot Street SW). Although it looks tiny when you walk in, walk down stairs and catch some live music. It’s always something cool.
Whew, that’s a long day. Our advice is to call Uber and let them drop you off and pick you up in style. Use code: ATLMovies
