The Weekender

Buddy Holly, Cigar Lockers and Scotch

The weekend has its eye on you.

Thursday
The Ambassador of Scotch Awaits
SCOTCH AND LEARN

The Ambassador of Scotch Awaits

We feel like you should drink some scotch tonight. Moreover, we feel like you should drink it with an official scotch ambassador (just go with it). And you’ll find him at Atkins Park’s multicourse scotch tasting, along with a barrage of chef’s whim small plates. The ambassador of small plates sends his regards.

Jan 27, 6:30pm, $35, Atkins Park (VaHi), 794 N Highland Ave, reserve at 404-876-7249

Café Intermezzo Does Downtown
INTER-PRISING

Café Intermezzo Does Downtown

It’s always been there for you. Standing at the ready for the occasional deployment of a candlelit, post-dinner seduction (the 50-page booze list doesn’t hurt, either). And now, Café Intermezzo has decided to spread its tiramisu cheesecake-y wings again by heading downtown. Yes, you just fell upon a 50-page happy hour.

Friday
Like a Bank for Your Cigars
CIGAR HERO

Like a Bank for Your Cigars

So there’s some construction going on right now at Café Circa. It involves Spanish cedar, a few hundred cigars... and a locker with your name on it. The humidor isn’t finished just yet, but now might be a good time to reserve one of the 30 private cigar lockers. The rooftop won’t stay closed forever.

Now reserving, Café Circa, 464 Edgewood Ave SE, get more info and reserve at 404-477-0008

Showing the High Who’s Boss
HIGH TIMES

Showing the High Who’s Boss

You’ve always been a pillar of the arts community. Actually, you haven’t... but tomorrow night, you will sip champagne and dine on red meat as an esteemed group of museum curators humbly seeks your approval of their works. And then, you will vote to determine what goes on the walls of the High. Okay, now you’re a pillar.

Saturday
Rock 1.0: Dive Bar Edition
BUDDY SYSTEM

Rock 1.0: Dive Bar Edition

Of course, you could always offset your champagne and Matisse kick with the restorative powers of cold canned beer and an endless stream of live music. So head to Star Bar for Hollyfest, a 10-band salute to the music of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper. Bop big, bop often.
