Are you ready to rock? Are you ready to vote?
You can do the former but not the latter this Saturday as early voting for Tuesday’s general election in Smyna has closed. Did you take advantage of early voting? Are you prepared to cast your ballot in three days?
Tuesday’s Election Day is the next opportunity to vote for mayor, your ward’s council seat and whether you can have the opportunity to buy alcohol in stores on Sundays come January.

Victorious candidate parties will ensue on Tuesday night, but there's plenty of opportunity to get down like it’s 1978 tonight at Dixie Tavern located at 2319 Windy Hill Road.
Rock the vote with Yacht Rock Schooner, which will drop anchor and wow the crowds with their inimitable style. Crowd-pleasing and catchy, the soft rock covers are like musical candy, so irresistible and sugar-laden that the crowd gobbles them up and begs for more.
According to their Facebook page, the Schooner’s trifecta of idols is composed of Kenny Loggins, Michael McDonald and Barry Gibb. The Schooner covers a wide range of artists from the same era, and we’ll tell you from experience that Hall and Oates’ “Rich Girl” brings the house down.
Good-humored, but never verging on parody, these guys take it seriously and put on one of the best shows in town. This raucous group of costumed musicians commands the stage at 9 p.m. and the cover charge is $5. - Jennifer Duncan
