Things to do for December 02, 2010

The Weekender

Massage Flights, Gratis Pizza and Partying with Santa

The weekend would like to challenge you to a duel.

Thursday
Chocolate Packed with Booze
PERK ALERT

Chocolate Packed with Booze

It’s tuxedo season. So you’ve probably been wondering where to find some chocolates to match your formalwear. At long last, it’s here: the Black Tie Collection, an exclusive set of dark chocolate truffles infused with Guinness, Macallan scotch and other formal essentials, by Compartes Chocolatier. Includes black truffle truffles.

You and Hundreds of Women
LION TAMER

You and Hundreds of Women

Warning: we’re about to send you into the lion’s den. But play your gifting cards right, and your valor will be handsomely rewarded (and in various ways). Look to the Brookwood lobby all weekend for up to 80% off endless women’s gear like Prada, Alexander McQueen and Valentino. Be strong.

Friday
Gratis Slices and Reverse Gifting
PIE ONE ON

Gratis Slices and Reverse Gifting

And now we’d like to direct you to a random little pizza joint off Lenox Road. Mostly because they’re giving out free pizza all day. Actually, that’s the only reason. So head to Pizzeria Venti tomorrow for gratis slices in honor of their second birthday. You could get used to this reverse gifting thing.

Saturday
A Week of French Prix Fixe-ing
FRENCH CONNECTION

A Week of French Prix Fixe-ing

When you think Atlanta, you think French restaurants. Okay, not at all. But for the next week or so, a select few of them (Anis, Petite Auberge...) will be rolling out special three-course, $30 prix fixe menus for your wining, dining and coq au vin-ing pleasure. Ascot optional.

Sunday
A Three-Course Massage Flight
SPA HUMBUG

A Three-Course Massage Flight

You’re over the whole shopping thing. You need a massage. Nay, you need three massages. Lucky day, because the Sweetgrass spa just rolled out a few new ones (think: CranioSacral Therapy, Thai Massage). Pick three, settle in and prepare to experience all of them... in an hour. Think of it as a massage tasting.

Dec 5, noon-5pm, $75, Sweetgrass, 483 Moreland Ave NE, reserve at 404-522-3223

Monday
Playing Beer Pong with Father Christmas
REINDEER GAMES

Playing Beer Pong with Father Christmas

You’re no regular on the beer pong circuit (at least not anymore), but when Saint Nick calls you out... it’s kind of go time. This Monday is Nikolaustag at Der Biergarten, which is basically German for half-price Warsteiner, playing beer pong with Santa and a friendly game of Hide the Pickle. You’ll see.
