Half Off Gourmet Burgers and 40% Off Exclusive Dopp Kits

This week, Perks is bringing you half off your next gourmet burger delivery from BuiltBurger, the Seattle-based innovators of all things ground beef. (Mind-blowing flavors like Sriracha and Gruyère are just the beginning...) Plus: choose from three dopp kits from eShave, designed exclusively for UD readers, featuring their all-natural products and handmade razors, for 40% off. Your five o’clock shadow has been warned.

Saturday
Over 100 Beers in Inman Park
FESTIVUS

Over 100 Beers in Inman Park

You’ve still got a solid month or two of festival-ing in you. So this Saturday, take to the Highland Avenue Beer Fest, featuring over 100 craft beers (Dogfish Head, Smuttynose, Victory...), five bands and a water balloon fight between the Cheetah and Pink Pony girls... if you’re into that kind of thing.

Aug 21, noon-6pm, $35 advance ($40 at the door), Inman Park (Highland Ave and Elizabeth St), tickets here

Water Balloons and Guinness World Records
BALLOON ANIMALS

Water Balloons and Guinness World Records

And speaking of water balloon fights, we’d like to point you in the direction of another one... that happens to be attempting a Guinness World Record. The current record is 3,927 people, and the Masquerade is going for broke, with live bands to help keep the energy up. You’ve trained for this day.

Aug 21, doors at 1:30pm (fight at 5pm), $5, The Masquerade, 695 North Ave, 404-577-8178

Monday
Monday Night Football, Lobster and Steak
MORE LOBSTER

Monday Night Football, Lobster and Steak

In the very near, very glorious future, your Monday nights will be reserved for football... oh, and lobster. Or filet. Because every Monday at Livingston, they’ll be offering up the former or latter for $16. We’d recommend the corner table with a view... of the TV.

Monday nights, 5-10pm, Livingston at the Georgian Terrace Hotel, 659 Peachtree St NE, 404-897-5000

Sale-ing in a Massive Abandoned Building
SET SALE

Sale-ing in a Massive Abandoned Building

Ah, City Hall East. At nearly 2 million square feet, it’s the city’s largest abandoned building. And starting Monday, you’ll have the chance to roam through and take your pick of anything that may have been left behind from 85 years of old-timey business dealings. We’re hoping Don Draper left a suit or two behind.

Aug 23-28, 9am-4pm, City Hall East, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE

Tuesday
Cigars, Poker and Tequila
FULL HOUSE

Cigars, Poker and Tequila

As discussed, Mondays = lobster and football. Which means that you’ll need a new poker and tequila night (naturally). Tuesday should work. Because Highland Cigar is now hosting Texas Hold ’Em Tuesdays, with $8 tequila drinks, plenty of cigars to surround yourself with and maybe even a royal flush or two. Turns out, cigars and tequila are your good luck charms.
