FULL SALE

70% Off Winter Gear at Atlantic Station

The end of winter is officially two months away. Which means you could probably use a backup blazer. So we’d like to point you in the direction of a massive boutique sale, where you’ll be looking at 50% to 70% off winter gear from the likes of Rag & Bone, APC and Rogues Gallery. See, winter’s not so bad.

Jan 21-22, 10am-6pm, 231 18th St NW (above Z Gallerie in Atlantic Station), more info here

Tomorrow Night’s Cultural Interlude
EXHIBITIONISM

Tomorrow Night’s Cultural Interlude

Tomorrow night, somewhere between happy hour and whipping your hair back and forth, you’ll want to make a pit stop at the Jackson Fine Art Gallery for the opening reception of cultish photographers Todd Selby and Elliott Erwitt’s new exhibit. You should always preempt your hair whipping with a little culture.

Movie-Themed Partying on the Westside
MOVIE TIMES

Movie-Themed Partying on the Westside

Movies. They’ve been filming quite a lot of those around here lately. And to embrace that fact, this weekend, hundreds of movie- and TV-themed exhibits and live performances (also, food trucks) will descend upon the Westside. Which is basically just smoke screen for the giant kickoff bash on Friday night. Consider your screen smoked.

Jan 21-23, 1235 Chattahoochee Ave, 404-752-5771, tickets here

Saturday
Open Flames and Wine at BLT
CLASS ACT

Open Flames and Wine at BLT

This Saturday, you and your date will find yourselves in a steakhouse kitchen assisting with the preparation of tuna tartare and Alaskan black cod marinated in acacia honey for BLT Steak’s first-ever cooking class. Oh, and you’ll also be drinking a lot of wine. So maybe stay away from the knives.

Jan 22, 2-4pm, $45, BLT Steak, 45 Ivan Allen Jr Blvd (W Downtown), reserve at 404-577-7601

A Five-Bar Salute to the Falcons
FALCON QUEST

A Five-Bar Salute to the Falcons

The Falcons’ loss is still a touchy subject at this point. A subject to be handled gingerly, thoughtfully... and preferably with $3 beers and gratis shots. So you’ll want to hit Midtown this weekend for a five-bar farewell to the Falcons. Which is pretty much the only valid reason to ever go on a pub crawl.
