Things to do for September 16, 2010

The Weekender

Champagne Sabering, Bottomless Mimosas and Sushi

The weekend has a backstage pass.

Thursday
A Sushi Soiree at Genki
SOCIAL SUSHI

A Sushi Soiree at Genki

It’s Thursday afternoon. Which means that in a few short hours it will be Thursday night. Or as you like to call it... the weekend. Start it at the Sushi Social Party at Genki for live music, drink specials and gratis sushi from 7 to 9pm. In other words, a good start.

Backstage with Legends at the High
BACKSTAGE PASS

Backstage with Legends at the High

Andy Warhol. The Stones. Johnny Cash. All have one thing in common: peanut allergies. Also, they were all photographed by Norman Seeff. And tonight, you will journey with him through 35 years of photography, filmmaking and backstage debauchery. He might even tell you where Keith hid the fountain of youth.

Friday
World Records and Champagne Sabering
SWORDPLAY

World Records and Champagne Sabering

You’re always game for witnessing a Guinness World Record attempt. Especially when swords are involved. Tomorrow night, St. Regis wine director Harry Constantinescu will attempt to saber 22 bottles of bubbly in 60 seconds, and you will be there. You wouldn’t let 22 bottles of champagne go to waste.

Sep 17, 5:30pm, St. Regis (Astor Foyer), 88 W Paces Ferry Rd, 404-563-7900

Saturday
Salsa Dancing and $3 Margaritas
MARGARITAVILLE

Salsa Dancing and $3 Margaritas

Not to beat a dead horse, but in case you forgot, today is Mexican Independence Day. And naturally, that calls for tequila. So this Saturday, pay your belated respects by heading to Prickly Pear’s Margarita Fest for $3 margs, $2 beers, a DJ and live salsa dancing...which is where the tequila comes in.

Sunday
Bottomless Mimosas at The Shed
LIQUID BRUNCH

Bottomless Mimosas at The Shed

By the time Sunday rolls around, you will have fought valiantly. So a recharge in the form of brunch may be in order, and The Shed at Glenwood is happy to help... and so are their $9 bottomless mimosas. Think of it as a gift from the Sunday gods.
