Friday

UD - A New Mediterranean Go-To in Midtown
HOT MEZ’

A New Mediterranean Go-To in Midtown

About dinner tonight: there’s this new Mediterranean spot called Café Mezo. Go the three-course-dinner-menu route and opt in for things like fried liver, kebabs and baklava. Oh, and the liquor license is still pending, but soon they’ll serve foot-long shots in custom glasses. At least you know that now.

411:

Now open, Café Mezo, 794 Juniper St, 770-298-4302

UD - Tap Dancing. Duke Ellington. Be There.
DUKE’S UP

Tap Dancing. Duke Ellington. Be There.

If you feel like bearing witness to rampant tap dancing and renditions of Duke Ellington songs like “It Don’t Mean a Thing” tonight, great. Because a bunch of singers and dancers are about to channel the man’s work on a Marietta stage. So... the Atlanta version of Off-Broadway.

Saturday

UD - This Could Get Kind of Dicey
TREK MATE

This Could Get Kind of Dicey

When you resolved to run more, you probably didn’t resolve to do it tomorrow morning with a special ops cadre that’s laying out obstacles over a four-hour race. It could be anything from dragging tires to crossing deep water to constructing makeshift stretchers. Your bad.

411:

Jan 4, 9am, $60, Trek, intersection of Fontaine Rd SE and Nickajack Rd SE in Heritage Park, Mableton, register here

Monday

UD - Thin, Meat-Filled Pancakes. So... Crepes.
CREPE OF GOOD HOPE

Thin, Meat-Filled Pancakes. So... Crepes.

A new spot called Le Metro Creperie is about to effectively destroy your “I don’t eat crepes all the time” mantra. Assuming, of course, that you like ground lamb crepes with raisins. And brandied-pear ones with vanilla sauce. And that you’ve ever made that mantra.

Tuesday

UD - Grant Park Has Some New Beer for You
BEERING AID

Grant Park Has Some New Beer for You

Well, this year’s shaping up nicely. Proof: on Tuesday, a fledgling Grant Park brewery called Eventide will release their first two beers (a Kölsch-style ale and American pale ale) with a launch party at Six Feet Under. Pressure’s on, rest of the year.
