3 Fun Things: Nov. 17-19


ROSWELL

Roswell Tellabration

If there’s one thing we know in the South – aside from how to cook mind-blowing barbecue and biscuits – it’s storytelling. The tradition has been passed down through generations and is prized as an ability to weave tale for strangers and friends alike. Roswell is celebrating this talent by taking part in the worldwide Tellabration event, when four storytellers will wow audiences with their words. The tales will be family friendly, but geared toward an adult audience.

7:30 p.m. Nov. 17. Free. Chattahoochee Nature Center, 9135 Willeo Road, Roswell. 770-640-3253, visitroswellga.com.

MARIETTA

The Magical World of Movies

A great film is nothing without a great musical score, and the Georgia Philharmonic wants to celebrate that feeling by showcasing some of the best soundtracks from a list of exceptional films. From classics such as “Beauty and the Beast” and “Snow White” to “How to Train Your Dragon” and “Star Wars,” the concert will feature a variety of moving musical numbers. Before the show, support the orchestra’s work by participating in a silent auction. Items such as barbecues, spa treatments and movie packages will be up for grabs.

7 p.m. Nov. 18. $10-$30. Lassiter Concert Hall, 2601 Shallowford Road, Marietta. 404-500-9276, georgiaphilharmonic.org.

STONE MOUNTAIN

Charity Warehouse Sale

Women’s and kids’ fashion line Mud Pie is hosting its annual charity warehouse sale, and the emphasis is on charity. A $10 admission fee gets you in the door, and that money is then given to the March of Dimes to fight premature births. This year, Mud Pie has added a weekend day to the sale, giving shoppers a second day to find bargains among the selected women’s fashions, totes, accessories, kid’s apparel and the wide selection of home wares, all tagged to sell from $1.29 to $22. A few tips before you go: Cash and credit are accepted, but bring your own bags or boxes to cart home your finds. And be aware that there are some limits on the number of items individuals may purchase.

9 a.m.-3 p.m. Nov. 17-18. $10 admission. Mud Pie Warehouse, 4893 Lewis Road, Stone Mountain. 678-397-0170, mud-pie.com/customer-service.

Antique mental equipment, though, is tougher to acquire. Besides, it contradicts our egotistical sense that earlier people were pretty much like us, but in tunics and hoop skirts. And so all...
