Things to do for March 10, 2011

The Weekender

Food Trucks, a Boozy Wake-Up Call and Rugby

The weekend isn’t scared.

Saturday
Post-Parade Rugby and DJs at Fadó
AFTERTHOUGHT

Post-Parade Rugby and DJs at Fadó

There’s a St. Patrick’s Day parade on Peachtree this weekend. Good deal. Should be fun-ish. But something tells us you’re more interested in the after-party. Fadó will be streaming rugby matches all day, letting the DJ take over all night and offering Irish breakfast/pint pairings throughout. Mind readers.

Mar 12, Ireland vs. Wales at noon, Fadó Irish Pub, 273 Buckhead Ave, 404-841-0066

The Food Trucks Are Coming (Again)
TRUCKIN’

The Food Trucks Are Coming (Again)

Things happen in spring. Patios reach capacity, you suddenly recall what legs look like... and naturally, food trucks throw parties. Yes, the Urban Picnic is back with a fleet of food trucks (Yumbii, Westside Creamery, Ciao Boca...) once again descending upon the Sweet Auburn Curb Market. No one parties like trucks.

Commandeer the Kitchen at Local Three
CLASS ACT

Commandeer the Kitchen at Local Three

Local Three: closed Saturday mornings. But you and a date should still consider showing up around 9am and rendezvousing with Chef Hall for his first-ever interactive cooking class, where you’ll deconstruct and prepare whole chickens before hitting the communal table to enjoy the fruits of your chicken-y labor. And beer.

Mar 12, 9am-noon, $100/person, Local Three, 3290 Northside Pkwy, reserve at 404-968-2700

Wednesday
Noche Opens Up Shop in Brookhaven
BROOK WORM

Noche Opens Up Shop in Brookhaven

By this point, you’re acquainted with Noche on one level or another. The Saffron Paella tapas. The $1 drafts on Sundays. Maybe even the $1 drafts on Sundays. And starting Wednesday, you can add Brookhaven to the list. We hear they’re going to have $1 drafts on Sundays.

Next Thursday
A 6am Toast to the Irish
WAKE-UP CALL

A 6am Toast to the Irish

We know, we’re getting ahead of ourselves here. But at the same time, we would be doing you a great disservice by not letting you know where to drink beer at 6am this St. Pat’s. Not to mention eggs, Irish sausages and rashers. Oh, it’s Rí Rá, by the way.

Mar 17, 6am, Rí Rá Irish Pub, 1080 Peachtree St (at 12th and Crescent), 404-477-1700
