Seven Ways To Do

ATLANTA.NET

From viewing art to hearing favorite performers and savoring the culinary scene, summer is a celebration of the senses. BY KAREN LOPEZ AND LIESL MERKEL


“Cyclorama: The Big Picture” features The Battle of Atlanta as depicted in a restored panorama painting at Atlanta History Center

CYCLORAMA: THE BIG PICTURE Before IMAX theaters and even before film, cycloramas were a form of entertainment in the late 19th century, giving a visual story through a 360-degree painting. Now, one of America’s largest historical treasures is safely preserved at Atlanta History Center. The 132-year-old cyclorama painting entitled “The Battle of Atlanta” is the centerpiece of the new interactive experience called “Cyclorama: The Big Picture.” This circular, hand painted work towers 49 feet tall and engulfs visitors into the 1864 American Civil War battle. The Atlanta History Center team has restored the painting to its original glory, including re-creating three missing panels, cleaning

the painting and re-fashioning the 120-foot diorama landscape that houses 128 restored plaster Civil War soldier figures. The exhibition takes visitors through the history of the painting, from its creation by German artists for a Northern and Midwestern audience depicting the Union victory to its journey to Atlanta, modified to appease a more southern audience and billed as “the only Confederate victory ever painted.” Interactive media and a short film will be used to steer “Cyclorama: The Big Picture” into a larger conversation of how perceptions, memory and interpretations can shape the big picture of our past, present and future. www.atlantahistorycenter.com

ATLANTA JAZZ FESTIVAL It’s music to your ears when the 42nd Atlanta Jazz Festival – the longest-running free jazz festival in the U.S. – returns to Piedmont Park over Memorial Day weekend, May 25-26.

DO THE LOCOMOTION THROUGH ATLANTA’S RAILWAY SITES With its origins as the terminating point of the Western & Atlantic railroad line in 1837, Atlanta is proud of its railway history. Ride the rails through this sampling of the city’s trains and railway museums. The Texas: The locomotive Texas is the centerpiece of the exhibition “Locomotion: Railroads and the Making of Atlanta” at the Atlanta History Center.

The Zero Mile Post that marked the railroad’s southern terminus and Atlanta’s city center also is on display.

THE DOC IS IN

CREATE A BUZZ The south might have a few more bugs in the summer, but Stone Mountain Park has added 70 giant insects that won’t bother our time outside. “MEGABUGS! Adventure Encounters” encourages families to learn about sounds and movements, and view the species that creep, crawl, fly and buzz through our environment.

Inside the 11th century-designed Castle, you’ll witness battles of steel, but also ornately adorned horses performing the art of dressage, and the flight of the Royal Falcon. The queen amply provides sustenance for her guests with a three-course feast that includes piping hot Dragon’s Blood (tomato soup) and hearty portions of chicken, steaming sides and a tempting dessert of the day. Audience members are seated in different sections and are encouraged to cheer for their particular knight. Fearless knights will joust, clash swords and ride at top speeds through the arena in a series of challenges. Come early for pictures with the queen, drinks at the bar or viewing the Medieval Torture Museum. www.medievaltimes.com

Barbecue & Beer Nothing says summer in the South like an ice cold beer and a heaping plate of ‘cue. Here’s where to get your fix of both in Atlanta. BY LAURA SCHOLZ

FOX BROS. BBQ The self-taught Fox brothers--Texas natives Jonathan and Justin Fox--got their start in catering, eventually opening a brick-andmortar location in Candler Park. Residents and visitors line up for hickory smoked jumbo wings, St. Louis style ribs and plates of meat like beef brisket and pulled pork, which come with two slices of white bread and a choice of two sides like tater tots, Frito pie, cole slaw and fried okra. www.foxbrosbbq.com

DAS BBQ Get beef brisket and pulled pork by the pound or half pound, plus sausages, whole and half rack ribs, sliced turkey and chicken wings at this Westside smokehouse. Plates come with both meat-centric sides like pinto beans with beef brisket and Brunswick stew with pork as well as veggie-friendly options like collard greens, elote cream corn and vinegar-style coleslaw. Feeding little ones? Kids 12 and under eat for just $5, which includes a jumbo slider and chips or a side. www.dasbbq.com

New Realm Brewing Company

There’s no need to choose between beer and barbecue at this Virginia-Highland spot, which includes a full bar and 18 taps of locally crafted beer from producers like Monday Night Brewing. The menu is robust, with everything from snacks like boiled peanuts and fried pickles to burgers, sandwiches, seven different styles of wings, and the main event: the smokehouse plates. Go classic with pulled pork or try the slice house-cured pastrami. Dining with a group? The whole house platter includes St. Louis ribs, brisket,

CITY BARBEQUE The Decatur outpost of this national chain offers smoked meats like pulled pork and beef brisket “naked” or with a bun, St. Louis-cut ribs and sampler plates like the “Judge’s Sampler,” which feeds two and includes ¼ chicken, ½ slab of ribs, pulled pork, beef brisket, two sides, two cornbreads and Texas toast. The family friendly restaurant also offers a Family Pack and Party Pack. Looking for a lighter option? The smokehouse turkey salad is the best of both worlds--smoked meats on a spring mix with cucumbers, tomatoes, cheese, onions and cranberries. www.citybbq.com

SMOKE RING The eclectic, industrial neighborhood of Castleberry Hill just east of Downtown boasts some of the city’s best barbeque. The standout sandwiches like the Show Stopper with pulled pork, bacon, pimento cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion marmalade and sweet barbecue sauce are also available on gluten free buns. An assortment of smoked wings and sauces, plates with pork belly and sliced brisket, and baby back ribs, Southern style sides and shareable starters like nachos and deviled eggs round out the menu. www.smokeringatlanta.com

MARCUS INGRAM / GETTY IMAGES FOR CANDYTOPIA

Sweet! Get your fix at

Candytopia

It’s a bit bizarre, a whole lot amazing and, even better, it’s fun. If you like candy, then get your sugar fix without eating a bite when you visit Candytopia, a traveling exhibition filled with sculptures built from just about every kind of candy you can think of – licorice, Swedish fish, rock candy and jelly beans. Candytopia is in Atlanta only through early June so make haste as if you’re on a sugar high to EDENS Lenox Marketplace at 3535 Peachtree Road and get an entirely new perspective on candy corn. What to expect: See more than a dozen rooms showcasing larger-than-life interactive art installations. Promoters describe it as a marshmallowy mini-theme park. Note that while you may not eat the candy-made sculptures, you will be treated to samples including sours and gummies, chocolate morsels and plenty more as you tour this temporary exhibit. The Atlanta show features several of the popular sculptures from previous exhibitions as well as new attractions just for the ATL. One Candytopia Atlanta attraction is a swimming pool full of more than a half million foam marshmallows. Even better, you are invited to jump right into this pool and “splash” around. There is an underwaterthemed wonderland filled with candy-covered sea creatures; a rainbow-filled room where you will see flying unicorn pigs, confetti explosions and can chew Trolli Twisted Sour Brite gummy samples. Atlanta-centric elements include a portrait of some of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, a sculpture that pays tribute to Ray Charles and a candy-coated Georgia peach – each made from thousands of pieces of candy. Who did this: Candytopia is the work of Jackie Sorkin, described by promoters as a global candy artist. It was created in partnership with her co-founders Zac Hartog and retail veteran John Goodman. Michelangelo it is not, but the sculptures are clever and creative, and, hey, who doesn’t like candy? It’s probably best to NOT invite your dentist. -CC

BACK

50 Years of the AJC Peachtree Road Race Coming this summer, perhaps no event is as anticipated as Atlanta Track Club’s 50th Running of the AJC Peachtree Road Race July 4, with 60,000 participants from across the country and around the globe expected to take part in the world’s largest 10K. Expect $200,000 in bonus prize money to be awarded to athletes who break an event record at the 50th Running, paired with a prize purse totaling $140,000. It all starts in Buckhead at Lenox Square, with the 6.2-mile race winding down Peachtree Street before ending at Midtown’s Piedmont Park with a post-race celebration with music and snacks.

ATLANTA.NET

Spectators, take note: Crowds love to line the parade route to cheer on runners, and many have made it a tradition every year with special refreshments and run-day cocktails. If you want to join in the fun, stake your claim early. At the Cathedral of St. Phillip, Dean Sam Candler sprinkles the runners with holy water, and further down, runners conquer Cardiac Hill, right in front of Piedmont Hospital, usually with music playing to inspire the runners. Many restaurants lining the route open early with special race day deals.
