The Weekender

Crawfish Pie, 80 Casks of Beer and More New Brunch

The weekend has a few tricks up its sleeve.

LUNCHABLES

The Right Way to Learn What a Tiffin Is

Your mid-afternoon schedule: stacked. But should you find time for a little deskside lunch... enter the tiffin. Technically, it’s a traditional Indian lunch box—but starting this week, Empire State South is loading their version with a rotating cast of takeout-only Southern-ness like Smoked Trout Rillettes and Pecan Tarts. You’ll make time.

Mon-Fri, order by 4pm for next-day pickup, $15, 999 Peachtree St, 404-541-1105, see the menu

Saturday
80 Barrels of Beer... That Is All
CASKING CALL

80 Barrels of Beer... That Is All

There’s a party at SweetWater this weekend. We know... shocker. But you might find it interesting that this one involves about 80 different casks of beer brewed by 80 different entrants. That, and the fact that you’ll have unlimited “samples” to help you cast your vote for the winner. You’ll accept bribes.

Going Full Green with Yacht Rock
LUCKING OUT

Going Full Green with Yacht Rock

It may not be today. It may not be tomorrow. But sometime soon, you will put on a green top hat and make some very bad decisions. Let’s make it this Saturday at ShamRock Fest. Expect Yacht Rock. Expect she-leprechauns dancing in kilts. And expect you dancing with she-leprechauns dancing in kilts.

Sunday
4th & Swift Does Brunch
SWIFT JUSTICE

4th & Swift Does Brunch

But if green kilts aren’t your thing, 4th & Swift is rolling out their first-ever brunch this Sunday. You could always bring a date for a few morning-after Bloodys. Or you could just show up for the Lobster Crepes and Red Wine Poached Farm Eggs and see where that goes.

Sundays starting Mar 6, 11am-2:30pm, 4th & Swift, 621 North Ave NE, 678-904-0160

Tuesday
Crawfish Pie and Masks at Serpas
MARDI ANIMAL

Crawfish Pie and Masks at Serpas

You normally shouldn’t wear a mask to Serpas. But this Tuesday... actually, you probably still shouldn’t. But you could get away with it, considering they’ll be showing their Mardi Gras love by way of $4 Hurricanes and Cajun-y additions like seafood gumbo, crawfish pie and king cake. And beads. And masks.

Mar 8, 5:30-10:30pm, Serpas, 659 Auburn Ave, Suite 501, 404-688-0040
