Partying with Chefs in an Art Gallery

Tonight... you will party. And you will do so with 13 of the city’s best chefs from restaurants like Rathbun’s, 4th & Swift, Dogwood and Aria. It’s called Party in the Kitchen, and it’s a veritable sea of open-bar opportunities, DJs and individual scotch, rum and tequila tasting stations. The kitchen part will be there if you need it.

Friday
Shopping and Burlesque at Jeffrey
NIGHT MOVES

Shopping and Burlesque at Jeffrey

Sure, you keep a strong arsenal of battle-ready gear in your closet. But since you’re always looking for another excuse to re-up, here’s a good one. Head to Jeffrey for their Fashion’s Night Out soiree with the gloATL dancers, a burlesque artist and gratis champagne. Oh, and Joe Biden’s nephew will be DJing... because it’s not a party until a Biden shows up.

Sep 10, 6pm, Jeffrey, 3500 Peachtree Rd NE, Suite A-3, 404-237-9000

An Old-School Dance Party at MF Room

We’re not here to tell you what to do, but we feel it might be time to put a little more Hall & Oates back in your life. And Rick James. And KC and the Sunshine Band. So this weekend, they will be waiting with open arms at MF Room for the opening night of Flashback Saturdays. Socialites and scrunchies, together at last.

Sep 11, 10pm-2am, $10 after 11pm, MF Room, 3280 Peachtree Rd, 404-841-1192

Sunday

SUNDAY-ING

NFL Sundays at Buckhead Bottle Bar

This Sunday, the Falcons will be on the road. And this Sunday, you will be watching them from Buckhead Bottle Bar. Sidle up to the bar, pick one of 10 flat-screens and kick off your new game-day rite of passage with $2 beers and $3 pizzas. From now on, this is how you Sunday.

Tuesday
A BBQ Cooking Class at Parish
’CUE IT UP

A BBQ Cooking Class at Parish

Okay, so you’ve partied with chefs, finally met Joe Biden’s nephew and watched the Falcons crush the Steelers. Now might be a good time to refocus on that certain brunette in your life by sipping gratis bubbly while learning to make things like watermelon gazpacho. In other words, diplomacy done right.

Sep 14, 6pm, $40, Parish, 240 N Highland Ave, 404-681-4434, reservations required
