Chances are, you’re traveling soon. Also: taking papers to work. And, we’ll assume, occasionally carrying cash. To help, Perks is introducing the UrbanDaddy Dozen, a carefully curated selection of rugged briefcases, luggage and wallets from SF’s Mulholland, handpicked by UD’s editors and available for 40% off. Pleased to meet you...
Things to do for October 21, 2010
Block Parties, Burger Secrets and... Lunch
The weekend has a hidden agenda.
Soon enough, the word fest will once again disappear from your vocabulary... soon enough. But for now, there’s the Candler Park Fall Fest with rows of food trucks (we’re looking at you, Palookaville corn dog guy), 15 bands and the requisite amount of beer to properly enjoy them. We would mention the 5K, but what’s the point.
El Taco Discovers Lunch
After two years of dinner-only Tex-Mexing in Virginia Highland, El Taco decided it might be time to do something crazy... like serve lunch. Look for newbies like the Huevos Scramble (eggs, tortilla chips, cilantro) and the Sloppy Jose (self-explanatory). Oh, and it’s only available on Saturdays and Sundays. Baby steps.
There’s a race this weekend. It’s only a mile. But the best part: whether you choose to run it or not, there’s a block party waiting for you at the finish line with live music, Sweetwater and, of course, the Doc Chey’s noodle-eating contest. Think of it as reverse carbo-loading.
It happens every night... the clock strikes 10. The bullhorn comes to life. And you have a one-in-24 chance of scoring the burger to end all burgers. Fear not, because this Sunday at Taste of Atlanta, Chef Jason Paolini from Holeman & Finch will teach you how to replicate it at home. Um, good luck with that.
Davio’s Saves Wednesday
Wednesday. Not a very awe-inspiring word. On the upside... not a bad date night. Allow us to point you in the direction of Davio’s, where every Wednesday night $40 gets you and your date a pre/post-movie (it’s in Phipps) tasting of four wines and gratis chef’s-whim appetizers. When chefs start whimming, you win.
