The Weekender

Bocce, Spare Ribs and a Couples-Only Burger

The weekend isn’t ready for itself.

Thursday
The Time to Bocce Is Now
NO BOCCE FOR OLD MEN

The Time to Bocce Is Now

Spring... it’s coming. And soon enough, the beer will flow, the sundresses will come out of hibernation, and the spring season of the Atlanta Bocce League will be under way. Only this time, it’s twice the size of its inaugural debut last fall. Yes, that’s 64 teams’ worth of sundresses.

In Case You’re Eating This Sunday
PLAYER CATER

In Case You’re Eating This Sunday

Regarding that game this weekend, you could probably use a rack of spare ribs. Oh, and maybe some boiled peanuts, wings, pulled pork and banana pudding while you’re at it. On second thought, you should probably just call D.B.A. and have them take care of it.

Friday
A Couples-Only Burger at the St. Regis
THAT’S AMORE

A Couples-Only Burger at the St. Regis

So there’s this burger. The off-menu, only-available-for-couples type. And to find it: head to the St. Regis, whisper the words “L’Amore” into your server’s ear and wait for your seared Kobe beef burger with pickled red cherry chutney and foie gras shavings over a chocolate brioche to arrive. No, seriously.

Throughout February, by request only, $28, Paces 88, 88 W Paces Ferry Rd, 404-563-7910

Saturday
A Drinking Gallery with an Art Problem
AUCTION PACKED

A Drinking Gallery with an Art Problem

You need another masterpiece. You know, just some mantel candy to keep your Grammy company (Whitesnake’s backup vocals weren’t going to sing themselves). So this Saturday, you’ll silently auction your way through the works of 250 artists while sampling foodstuffs from the likes of Sotto Sotto, Yeah Burger and Fritti. And a bunch of bars.

Sunday
On the Off Chance You Need a Plan B...
ACE IN THE BOWL

On the Off Chance You Need a Plan B...

Your Sunday night plans are pretty much sewn up. And we get this. But if you happen to find yourself in need of nothing more than a few (hundred) friends, a few (too many) cold beers and a giant screen projecting the non-Falcons-based formality otherwise known as the Super Bowl, you may want to consider P’cheen.

Feb 6, game time, P’cheen, 701-5 Highland Ave NE, 404-529-8800
