Things to do for June 03, 2010
Spicy Bourbon, Two-Day Parties and a Crawfish Boil
The weekend wants its third day back.

World Premiere Weekend at the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra
In case you needed an excuse to reacquaint yourself with your tuxedo, the orchestra is kicking off the season with new music from local composers Michael Gandolfi and Jennifer Higdon, and Mozart's 39th Symphony to finish off the evening. (We hear he's an up-and-comer.)
Haute Ice Cream Sandwiches
It's hot... and getting hotter. So it's only right to take refuge in the sweet, sweet solace of ice cream sandwiches, available during lunch only at Miller Union. The chef's whim and seasonal ingredients will determine your choices, but expect homemade variations like butterscotch marshmallow or roasted banana. We believe in these whims.
Crawfish and Dixie Beer at Serpas
So you're having a hard time staying indoors lately. Serpas Restaurant understands, and is hosting an outdoor low country boil with endless crawfish, jambalaya, bread pudding and $3 Dixie Beers from Louisiana. Add live music and a few hundred like-minded patio warriors, and you've got yourself an afternoon.
There's a lot of design events going on this Saturday. Your concern, however, is with the after-party... and it's called Yall & Us. Basically, it's a boozy design exhibition (or a designy booze exhibition) with eclectic furniture and housewares from 15 national designers, gratis Tasty Spicys (bourbon and spicy ginger ale) and a DJ. No dancing on the furniture.
Coming off of a three-day weekend, we think it's only appropriate to celebrate a four-day work week... with a two-day party. FLUX at the Georgian Terrace Hotel starts Saturday with DJ Vicki Powell until 3am, then moves to the rooftop pool on Sunday with a brunch buffet, mimosas and $12 build-your-own Bloody bar. Two-day weekends can still hang.
Custom Bourbon and Sliders at Paces 88
By the time Wednesday comes around, it's time to start thinking about bourbon... and burgers. Together. Every Wednesday, Paces 88 pairs live music on the patio, gratis sliders and cocktails made with their custom bourbon blend (think Kentucky Bourbon Sparkler with vanilla bean syrup and sparkling wine). You'll take yours neat, thank you.
