A cop patrolling a Sweet Auburn park saw two men smoking at public picnic tables inside a pavilion. The cop approached the smoking men and overheard other people inside the pavilion warning a woman to throw away her liquor bottle before the cop arrived.

It's Labor Day weekend and for most people that means that there's an extra day to celebrate! We are only covering Friday through Sunday in this column but Monday, Labor Day, will be in the next column, "The Week Ahead," which will also come out today since Labor Day weekend means Dragon Con for this reporter and I will be busy volunteering at the Con and celebrating my other passion for Atlanta fan conventions this weekend. That means that all of you who aren't at Dragon Con need to go out and support live blues for me! This weekend is mainly a time to catch up on your favorite local talent.
