Things to do for March 17, 2011

The Weekender

50-Cent Oysters, Blondes and Six Pounds of Pizza

The weekend is dusting off the SPF 15.

Thursday
You, Two Hours and Six Pounds of Pizza
YOU VS. FOOD

You, Two Hours and Six Pounds of Pizza

Okay, we’re just going to say it: this is ridiculous. But when someone tests your mettle with a six-pound, 24-inch pizza... you simply don’t care. Finish it in two hours, and you live among gods (and it’s free). Don’t, and you’re out 60 bucks. So basically, you’re out 60 bucks.

Friday
An Assemblage of Artistic Blondes
BLONDE AMBITION

An Assemblage of Artistic Blondes

Blondes... they have more fun. Keep joke writers’ electricity on. And apparently they’re also pretty good with a paintbrush. Tomorrow night, five lovely blonde women (and one lucky guy) will debut their finest works under one Buckhead roof, along with gratis wine and canapés. We just thought you should know that.

Saturday
The James Beard House, Only Not
BEARDED MAN

The James Beard House, Only Not

Good news: Chef Hartman from the Montaluce Winery will be cooking at the James Beard House. Better news: he wants to practice on you. Head north for dishes like Georgia Lamb Terrine and Slow-Cooked Pork Shoulder, all paired with Montaluce wines. And you thought we forgot the best news.

A Night of Showgirls, and That Movie
SHOW TIME

A Night of Showgirls, and That Movie

You’ll always remember the day that girl from Saved by the Bell suddenly... grew up. So in honor of the movie Showgirls, Blast-Off Burlesque is hosting a little soiree/interactive stage show. Think costume contests, gratis “refreshments” and your shot at reenacting the infamous pool scene on stage. Then they’ll show the movie.

Sunday
50-Cent Oysters and a Shiny New Lunch
OYSTER FEST

50-Cent Oysters and a Shiny New Lunch

All right, so P’cheen is about to start serving lunch on the weekends. Starting with this one. Which means Smoked Croques, Fried Oyster BLTs and another excuse to initiate consumption at noon this Saturday. You condone this. Then again, you also condone 50-cent oysters every Sunday. The burdens you carry.

Sat-Sun, noon, P’cheen, 701-5 Highland Ave NE, 404-529-8800
