Deprive yourself of carbs, alcohol, and live nude painting for the next week -- or better yet, don't -- but either way, make plans to attend P&B, because it's a completely baller two days of local art, breakfasty eating, drinking, and live music, an extravaganza that started in LA and is hitting ATL after running through Phoenix, Portland, and Dallas -- so just think of it like Jim Jackson, except it hasn't been to New Jersey, and Golden State, and Miami, and Houston...
You'll be BYO-ing your booze into the lofty, anything-goes space, so stock up on high-gravs, travel-size whiskey, or Riunite (all three?), and hit the all-you-can-eat pancake bar where flapjacks'll be made to order w/ toppings like strawberries, bananas, chocolate chips, and blackberries, which iPhone users will all reject in favor of Apples.
75+ emerging and "underground" (don't worry, not the Upper Alabama kind) ATL artists will display sweet pieces like awesomely weird anatomical art from Caitlin Bates, and paintings by Jeremy Worst: sexy ladies posing with PBR and Jack bottles, Pacquiao on a punching bag, and one featuring Lil' B called "The Basedgod" (forgive him for being the worst rapper alive, buy a print, and you will truly Look Like Jesus).
If you're still not entertained, don't watch a gladiator death-match headlined by Maximus, and instead catch live music from local groups like rockers Cloudeater and DJ duo Unkl Sam, then watch as Stephanie Anderson of Neon Armour turns a nude lady into a color-brushed canvas -- hopefully they won't try it on Jim Jackson, to ensure he doesn't go hard in the paint.
