Eating Your Way Through East Atlanta
TASTER’S CHOICE

Eating Your Way Through East Atlanta

Ah yes, the East Atlanta Village. A hipster-rich mecca of hidden treasures, ripe for urban exploration. So tonight, put on your adventuring shoes and head to Taste of East Atlanta to sample the goods from restaurants like Urban Cannibals, Holy Taco, So Ba and the Glenwood. Might want to bring your drinking shoes too.

Premature Christmas-ing at Atkins Park
BAD SANTA

Premature Christmas-ing at Atkins Park

Hey. Merry Christmas. Don’t fight it, just go with us here. This Sunday, both locations of Atkins Park Tavern are throwing Christmas in July parties, with DJs, drink specials and a healthy dose of unseasonable Christmas cheer. Oh, and a few Ms. Clauses to help get you in the holiday spirit.

Jul 25, 9pm, Atkins Park Tavern, 794 N Highland Ave, 404-876-7249, and 2840 Atlanta Rd SE, 770-435-1887

$3 Beers and a Lobster Boil at SOHO
LOBSTERING

$3 Beers and a Lobster Boil at SOHO

We’ve been waxing poetic about lobster a lot lately. And we don’t plan on stopping until we have to. Every Sunday, Vinings’ own SOHO hosts a Low Down Lobster Boil, where you’ll get a 1.5-pound Maine lobster with roasted potatoes, corn on the cob and andouille sausage for $25. Not to mention $3 pints of Sweetwater 420... to dip your lobster in, of course.

Sundays, 5-9pm, SOHO, 4300 Paces Ferry Rd SE, 770-801-0069 for reservations

Monday
Weeknight Brunching at Rosebud
SCHOOL NIGHTS

Weeknight Brunching at Rosebud

There’s a sacred rite of morning-after passage that only comes along once, maybe twice a week. It’s called brunch, and it just got a promotion to primetime. Every Monday night, stop in at Rosebud for Monday Night Brunch, with favorites like Country Ham & Brie French Toast and, of course, $5 Bloodys. Think of it as the evening-after.

Wednesday
A New Dessert Den in Brookhaven
SUGAR HIGH

A New Dessert Den in Brookhaven

A night in Brookhaven may or may not involve prodigal pint consumption at Pub 71 and Hudson Grille. But if and when it does, starting next Wednesday you can casually stroll next door to the Sugar Shack for a mid-game refuel involving the elusive pre-late-night cupcake and a few sandwiches thrown in for good measure. Never attempt prodigal pint consumption on an empty tank.

Opens Jul 28, Sugar Shack, 4058 Peachtree Rd, 404-816-6161
