The Weekender

All-Day Parties, an Irish Hoedown and Whiskey

The weekend will see you now.

Thursday
Half Off Your Next Pair of Designer Jeans
BRAND-NEW PERKS

Half Off Your Next Pair of Designer Jeans

This week, Perks is taking half off your next pair of cult selvage denim jeans, fresh from the laboratory: the Denim Design Lab. It’s modern-day jean science, with a dash of old-timey alchemy. A little jean alchemy goes a long way.

Stilettos and Sake Flights at MF Room
RAW STRUCK

Stilettos and Sake Flights at MF Room

Starting your night at MF Room with a few old friends usually involves ending it with a few new ones. So tonight, make your way to the black-on-gold den of sushi and stilettos for RAW, where $25 gets you passed sushi and a flight of five sakes. Your stiletto flight starts later.

Jul 29, 7-10pm, $25, MF Room, 3280 Peachtree Rd, Suite 110, RSVP to 404-841-1192

Four Courses of Whiskey at Shaun’s
ROCKY MOUNTAIN HIGH

Four Courses of Whiskey at Shaun’s

Rocky Mountain whiskey. Just saying it makes you a better you. So tonight, Shaun’s is hosting a four-course whiskey dinner, where anything from an Old Fashioned with Sorghum to a Whiskey Tarhum Fizz will be sidled up next to dishes like Riverview Farms Porchetta or Vanilla Pound Cake with Sweet Corn Ice Cream. And whiskey.

Jul 29, 6:30pm, $75 with alcohol, $55 without, Shaun’s, 1029 Edgewood Ave NE, 404-577-4358, reservations required

Friday
$3 Shots and Costumes at Rí Rá
PINT SIZED

$3 Shots and Costumes at Rí Rá

Any excuse to lock elbows and sing “Whiskey in the Jar” is a good one. But in case you actually needed a reason, Rí Rá in Midtown is having an Irish Hoedown tomorrow night with $3 shots of Jameson, $3 pints of Irish beer and live music by Scott Moody and the Attitude Adjusters. In case the Jameson didn’t already take care of that for you.

Jul 30, 8pm, Rí Rá, 1080 Peachtree St NE, 404-477-1700

Saturday
An All-Day Tequila Party at Bone Garden
TEQUILA SUNSET

An All-Day Tequila Party at Bone Garden

We think you should go to an all-day party this Saturday. And Bone Garden Cantina’s two-year anniversary party might be just the one. Show up for the Sonoran Hot Dogs and live music, and stay for the unveiling of their new Tequila Club, where “tasting” all 50 tequilas will earn you the right to create your own margarita to put on the list. Pace yourself.

Tuesday
Farmers’ Marketing in Poncey-Highlands
FARMTASTIC

Farmers’ Marketing in Poncey-Highlands

You’ve had some success on the farmers’ market circuit. But let’s face it, the harvest isn’t always... bountiful. So this Tuesday, head to the just-opened InTown Farmer’s Market for the usual accoutrements like free-range chickens, salsas and plenty of fresh local honeys. They also have that stuff that bees make.

Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3-7pm, 563 Ponce De Leon Ave, 404-484-0944 for more info
