Bocce, Spare Ribs and a Couples-Only Burger
The weekend isn’t ready for itself.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
