Potter? I don't even know her!
Lots going on this weekend, reprobates. No time for cheap jokes at the expense of smelly hippies, so let's get right to it:
Twilight 5K: In your dreams, this would be a run that had an angst-ridden wannabe vampire as first prize. Instead, it's a 5K run at Cascade Hills Baptist Church, 727 54th St., at 7 p.m. Friday. It's $35 to run. Get there an hour early to register.
Deathly Hallows: Your wait to see Emma Watson in a tight red dress is finally over. You have no choice but to watch "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part I" this weekend. Go see it at Carmike 15, 5555 Whittlesey Blvd.
Fantasy in Lights: Want to pay a load of cash to walk 5 miles through the cold, November night so you can see light bulbs? Good. Check out the Fantasy in Lights at Callaway Gardens. It starts at 4 p.m. Sunday and costs $16 if you're an adult. Call 706-660-0160.
Quit Playing Games While Hangin' Tough
I'll spend the majority of this weekend looking forward to the New Kids on the Block/Backstreet Boys performance at Sunday's American Music Awards. What else is going on? Let's see.
Coffee and music: Sip a cappuccino while watching Shaun Crane and Friends perform an all-ages show at Fountain City Coffee, 1007 Broadway. The shows are 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
Beatles tribute band: Athens-based Abbey Road LIVE! performs 8 and 10:30 p.m. Saturday at The Loft, 1032 Broadway. Tickets are $10.
American Music Awards: The show airs 8 p.m. Sunday on ABC. Nothing matters except Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block. I'll post live updates throughout the show.
