OYSTERING

$2 Oysters and Beer Downtown

Your list of priorities has always put oysters and beer right up there with... pools and beer. BLT Steak is with you—they're offering $2 oysters, $2 oyster shooters and $2 craft beers from 5 to 7pm on weekdays for the next couple of weeks. Just make sure you wait 30 minutes before entering the pool.

Mon-Fri, 5-7pm, BLT Steak, 45 Ivan Allen Jr Blvd, 404-577-7601

Friday
Introducing Dinner at Noon
NOON TO NIGHT

Introducing Dinner at Noon

You already know Noon for its peperonata omelets and stellar Bloodys during the day, so now prepare yourself for something totally different: dinner. They're serving up Trout & Pork Belly and Green + Egg + Ham, along with martinis. Spiked coffee available upon request.

Chicken Oysters on the West End
BRING IN THE NEW

Chicken Oysters on the West End

You've got a big weekend coming up. And somewhere in there, you'll no doubt be spending some quality time on JCT.'s patio with a Westside Smash (bourbon, naturally) or three. So you'll be pleased to hear that they've updated their menu with dishes like Rabbit Leg with Vidalia Onions and Crispy Chicken "Oysters" with Fried Green Tomato Pickles. Nothing says "long weekend" like rabbit leg.

New menu items available now, JCT. Kitchen & Bar, 1198 Howell Mill Rd, Suite 18, 404-355-2252

Saturday
A Weekend-Long Rooftop Pool Bash
POOL DAYS

A Weekend-Long Rooftop Pool Bash

Everyone loves a pool. And if it happens to be on the 16th floor terrace of a hotel, so be it. This weekend, the W Downtown launches their pool deck for the season with DJs, plenty of booze and plenty of bikini-clad sun goddesses. Who have a way of making DJs and booze an afterthought.

Fri-Sat, noon-midnight, Sun, 12:30-8pm, W Atlanta Downtown (16th Floor WET Deck), 45 Ivan Allen Jr Blvd, 404-582-5800

Sunday
Introducing the City's Latest Food Truck
TRUCKIN'

Introducing the City's Latest Food Truck

Food truck season is in full swing. So you'll be happy to hear that a new kid by the name of Yumbii will soon be on the block, offering an impossibly eccentric combination of Korean, Mexican and Southern plates like Calamari Tacos with Bibim Bop (a Korean rice and vegetable medley). You could always use more Bibim Bop.
