The Galleria Chat appears on this blog each Thursday. The Chat provides a hearty helping of events and announcements to keep you in the know about the area surrounding the Atlanta Galleria Office Park. So without further ado …
Music on the Square. Mark your calendars for the Glover Park Concert Series, which takes place on the Marietta Square on the last Friday of each month from now through September. Bring your chairs, blankets and picnic goodies for a night of live music. Personal tables can also be setup in the street on North Park Square after 6 p.m., but not in Glover Park. VIP tables can also be reserved for a fee.
The outdoor concerts will begin at 8 p.m., rain or shine. For more information and a complete schedule of bands, click here.
