Spring Is Busting Out All Over At Brookhaven Cherry Blossom Festival: It's (finally!) officially Spring, and there's no better place to celebrate the most colorful season of the year than in Brookhaven this weekend.
The second annual Brookhaven Cherry Blossom Festival is taking place Saturday (from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.) and Sunday (11 a.m. to 6 p.m.) at Blackburn Park, and admission both days is free. Back in 2014, the city planted more than 200 cherry trees in the park, and now the festival celebrates the blossoming of those trees with two days of activities for families. This year's event will feature an arts & crafts market, food trucks, and music. Pet owners can take part in the Pet Parade and Costume Contest, happening Sunday at 2 p.m. (cost is ten bucks per pet), and there's a 5K Run/1K Walk happening Saturday at 7 a.m. (registration and fee required).

Burgers With Buck: There is a new sheriff in town at Turner Field, and by sheriff, of course I mean a concessions partner. Delaware North, one of the largest privately-held hospitality companies in the world has partnered with the Braves to rework the concessions experience in the final season at Turner Field.
Among the new attractions, "The Everything Dog" (aka T.E.D.-- get it?). It's a foot long dog layered with fries, nacho chips, beer cheese, and jalapenos topped with popcorn then drizzled with Coca-Cola infused BBQ sauce and served in a pretzel bun.
There's also the "Tater Tot Chop" which starts with a layer of tater tots pressed in a waffle iron, loaded with bacon, melted cheese and jalapenos, topped with a second tater tot waffle and served with Coca-Cola infused ketchup.
You get the idea?
Don't forget the "Punisher" which is country-fried, smoked rib meat slathered in a Monster Energy Drink infused BBQ sauce, topped with a fresh cut beer-battered onion ring and 'slawsa' tucked in between a toasted and buttered Hawaiian bun and pinned in place with two slices of candied bacon.
Why stop now, right?
Then there's the "Sausage Sundae", consisting of smoked sausage, split down the middle, topped with mac n' cheese, mashed potatoes, and pulled pork, and finished off with BBQ sauce and a cherry tomato.
I know what you're thinking, well at least I think I do. What about the burger? Are you ready for this?
The "Burgerizza" is a grilled 20 oz. all beef patty, covered with five slices of cheddar cheese, topped with crispy bacon, and served between two eight-inch Freschetta pepperoni pizzas.
A #BurgersWithBuck confession, for the time in #BWB history, I was unable to finish the entire burger. That's how big it is, and that is why it is likely plenty for you to split three or four ways.
And now it's finally time to "PLAY BALL"!
