Things to do for November 24, 2010

The Weekender

Flying Girls, Big Boi and Whiskey

The weekend laughs in the face of tryptophan.

Wednesday
A Thanksgiving Pre-Party at Atkins Park
WILD TURKEY

A Thanksgiving Pre-Party at Atkins Park

Consider Thanksgiving. Family. Turkey. Stuffing... sure. But at the end of the day, there always seems to be one constant: booze. We suggest you embrace this tonight at Atkins Park’s Thanksgiving Eve party for live music from Lost City with Sweetwater and whiskey specials all night. You can eat it off tomorrow.

Thursday
Spending Thanksgiving at a Winery
TURKEY BRUNCH

Spending Thanksgiving at a Winery

If you happen to be going rogue tomorrow, we say do it right. And you can start by grabbing a date and heading up to wine country (well, close enough, anyway) for Montaluce Winery’s Thanksgiving brunch with Brasstown Beef prime rib, turkey (shocker) and every traditional side imaginable. Which also pairs well with every traditional wine imaginable.

Dynamic Dish Goes Out in Style
THE LAST SUPPER

Dynamic Dish Goes Out in Style

It’s tough to say good-bye. Especially to a place like Dynamic Dish, which happens to be permanently closing its doors tomorrow night. But not before rolling out an epic Thanksgiving spread (roasted beet soup, organic turkey and sweet apple salad...). They’re almost booked, but you can always take your chances at the BYOB bar. An action that has yet to fail you.

Nov 25, 1-6pm, $40 (cash only), Dynamic Dish, 427 Edgewood Ave, reserve at 404-228-4523

Friday
Searing Your Own Wagyu on a Salt Block
BLOCK PARTY

Searing Your Own Wagyu on a Salt Block

This weekend, before you hit the new rink at Park Tavern, you’ll grab a table, shoot your server a knowing glance and casually say the following words... Salt. Block. Experience. You’ll then be presented with a red-hot Himalayan salt block, upon which you’ll skillfully sear your own sashimi-grade fish and Wagyu beef. You never ice-skate without Wagyu.

Available now, $29, Park Tavern, 500 10th St NE, 404-249-0001

Saturday
Flying Girls and Big Boi
LIGHT YEAR

Flying Girls and Big Boi

Sure, everyone loves a parade. But more often than not, they just seem to be missing something. Mainly a bunch of girls adorned with flashing lights dancing and flying around. Oh, and a live performance by Big Boi from Outkast couldn’t hurt either. It’s called Hinterland, and it happens Saturday night. Might still want to bring your sunglasses, though.
