It's almost the weekend again! And for those of you looking for fun things to do while staying close to home, Athens has amazing options!

1. The Dalton Gang is performing Saturday night at Terrapin Beer Co. for your entertainment while you sample some of Athens favorite unique beers! Georgia's own Dalton Gang is a country/southern rock band with inspirations ranging from Johnny Cash to Lynard Skynard whose music is sure to complement award winning Terrapin beer. The show starts at 5:30 p.m.

2. If you're up for something a little more dramatic, an Irish musical group is performing Friday night at 8 p.m. Danu blends traditional Irish music and instruments with local music from the four corners of Ireland.
