Things to do for February 17, 2011
Winter Swimming, 100 Beers and Barefoot Dining
When life gives the weekend lemons, it makes itself.
Every once in a while, you just need to lay down some cardboard and breakdance. Fine, maybe not. But this weekend, those who actually do will converge upon the Westside for a series of head-to-head, winner-take-all battles. You can just drink and watch.
A while back, we told you about a lovely woman named Asha and her secret supper club called Spice Route. Well, the secret’s out. And tomorrow night she’ll be teaming up with Dinner Party Atlanta for a 21-course, sit-on-the-floor-and-eat-with-your-hands affair at the Grand Atrium. Like New Year’s Eve, only on purpose.
This weekend—sunny and beautiful. Again. And that can only mean one thing: beer festival. Correction: beer carnival. So head to Midtown this Saturday for an indoor/outdoor beerathon (read: over 100 of them) with live music, DJs and... carnival rides. We’ll see how that goes.
We think you should consider rounding up a few friends and entering a costume contest this Saturday... and then jumping into Lake Lanier. Partly because it’s for a good cause, but mostly because it’s been way too long since you’ve sprinted into a 35-degree body of water dressed as David Bowie in Labyrinth.
Top Flr: Morning-After Edition
Brunch. It’s a sacred rite of passage. A glorious crossroads where breakfast meets lunch meets just enough tomato-flavored vodka to get you back in the game. And now, you can add Top Flr to the list. The final menu is still being tweaked, but we figured you’d be okay with that. They had you at brunch.
