Halloween is over, but don’t expect the vibe across Atlanta to “go back to normal” anytime soon.
There seems to have been an unspoken agreement in the city for organizers to hold free or cheap events with pleasingly outside of the ordinary elements this month.
Let’s review a few.
Nov. 5: Scofflaw Brewing Co. is hosting a “rescued animal petting zoo” at its brewery Sunday. The event will include a miniature horse, cow, pig, donkey and mule, along with non-miniature sheep, goats, chickens, ducks and rabbits. Children can feed the animals. The zoo, held from 1 to 4 p.m. is free and will be supervised by Atlanta police officers. Plus, this event overlaps with a puppy adoption event at the brewery, held from 2 to 5 p.m.
Address: 1738 MacArthur Blvd. NW

Nov. 18: The Basement in East Atlanta Village will be the place for an all-Beyonce dance party, aptly called “Bey Day.” That means you should expect to hear — and to dance to — nothing but Beyonce from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. Tickets for the 21 and up event are $8 to $10.
Address: 1245 Glenwood Ave. SE
Nov. 26: “Inglorious Berlesque — A Burlesque Tribute to Quentin Tarantino” is going down at Smith’s Olde Bar. The Candybox Revue burlesque troupe will pay tribute to the director just a few days after Thanksgiving. General admission tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. VIP packages are also available. The 21 and up show starts at 8:30 p.m.
Address: 1578 Piedmont Ave. NE
