ATLANTA - Rock Star Dreams Come True at Virginia-Highland Tavern: Admit it -- you've dreamed of being a rock star. You've cranked up the radio in the car, or held up the hair brush as a microphone, and belted out a power ballad or two. Well, if you're really brave, there's a place where you can take that act to the stage, complete with a live band and cheering audience.
Dark Horse Tavern in Virginia-Highland offers Metalsome Karaoke on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at its 10 High venue from 10:30 p.m. until 3 a.m. Doors open each night at 9 p.m., and a live band accompanies singers on heavy metal classics from Metallica to Poison. Meanwhile, the venue also offers Soul Karaoke on Wednesdays from 10:30 until 3, offering singers the chance to take on R&B and soul favorites. Along with 10 High, Dark Horse Tavern recently added The Wax Attic, billed as a "vinyl listening lounge," where bartenders take requests to place songs from a large collection of vinyl records.
Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken never turns down the chance to sing on live TV, and spent the morning checking out the action at Dark Horse Tavern.

Canstruction Atlanta Moves to New Location: What can you do with 85,000 cans of food? The question is really – what can’t you do?
Right now, sixteen incredible sculptures built entirely out of canned food are on display in the lobbies of 171, 201, and 271 17th Street (next to Atlantic Station), making up this year’s Canstruction Atlanta. The annual event benefits the Atlanta Community Food Bank, which will receive all of the canned food along with monetary donations from some of the teams of local designers who volunteered to build the can-structures. This year’s display includes a scene from the classic arcade game Galaga, a scarecrow in his field, the Atlanta city skyline, and a giant pair of lips in tribute to the late musician Prince. The 85,000 cans of food total about 80,000 pounds of food.
Good Day Atlanta’s Paul Milliken and photojournalist Blaze Meier got a look at this year’s Canstruction. Click here for more information on where and when you can see these delicious works of art!
