Comedian Jim Breuer has been active for nearly three decades, and shows no signs of slowing down. Anyone raised on copious amounts of Comedy Central will know Breuer for his late-'90s run on "Saturday Night Live," as well as his role in the cult-classic stoner film Half Baked. Breuer’s most potent material, however, is his unique stand-up comedy.

Hopefully not buried among the many things Avid Bookshop has going on tomorrow (Saturday, Apr. 29) for Independent Bookstore Day—which include local art for sale, free Ike & Jane doughnuts at the Prince Avenue location, free Independent Baking Co. pastries at the Five Points location, face painting, sidewalk chalk and poetry readings—is a meet-and-greet and book signing with Mary Kay Andrews for her brand-new The Beach House Cookbook. That's at the Prince Avid, starting at 11 a.m. and going until noon. Andrews is better known for her novels, but she also likes to cook—hence, the book.

Yeah, yeah, G-Day is tomorrow, but plenty is going on in Athens for those who are more interested in #resisting Trump than who's gonna be the Dawgs' third-string middle linebacker this fall.
Kick off the day with the Athens-Clarke County Democrats' monthly breakfast at 10 a.m. at First AME Church at the corner of Hull and Dougherty. UGA professor Richard Winfield will discuss universal basic income and publicly guaranteed employment.
Next, if you're still hungry, head to the Athens Economic Justice Coalition's cookoff in support of a living wage from 11 a.m.–1 p.m. at Memorial Park.
You’ve seen the tiny house shows, you’ve thought about how cool it would be to pack up and live light, but if you’ve never actually gotten to experience a tiny home, the Creative Animal Foundation will be at Athens Technical College on Monday showing the possibilities of 200-square-foot living and the value of living sustainably.
Classroom talks will start at 9 a.m., and from noon–5 p.m. the tiny house will be open to the public for viewing. You’ll also get the chance to talk sustainability with tour hosts Stephanie Arne, co-founder and board president of CAF, and Tim Davison, co-founder and board vice-president.

If you've ever tried to park at Mama's Boy during a busy time of day (i.e., basically all of them) and ended up giving up, with a flood of profanity, you'll be pleased to hear about the restaurant's upcoming second location.
The Clarke County Board of Education will introduce its sole finalist for superintendent at a public forum Monday night, the district announced late Friday.
Naming a sole finalist is a reversal for the school board, which had previously said it would name three finalists and allow the public to question them before making a final decision.
Here's the news release from CCSD:
Organizers of the inaugural Vic Chesnutt Songwriter of the Year Award have extended the deadline for nominations to next Friday, Apr. 7.
A forum Monday with the finalist(s) for Clarke County School District superintendent will be held at Whitehead Road Elementary, the district announced today.
Whitehead is in the northwest corner of the county, at least a 20-minute drive from the Eastside and not on a bus line. Why such an inconvenient location?
"Much of our community has not had the opportunity to visit Whitehead Road Elementary School, which is truly an incredible learning environment," CCSD spokeswoman Anisa Sullivan Jimenez said. "We hope individuals will come and see their tax dollars at work at this important community event."
