Things to do for March 25, 2011

The Weekender

Italian Movies, Absinthe and Bacon

The weekend will be at the bar if you need it.

Friday
40% Off Iron Man’s Sunglasses
PERK ALERT

40% Off Iron Man’s Sunglasses

Recently, your eyes have been dealing with a noticeable increase in sunlight—due to a long-lost phenomenon known as spring. So we’re hooking you up with 40% off our editors’ selection of Initium Eyewear—sported by Robert Downey Jr. in Iron Man.

Date Night, Now with More Fellini
LITTLE ITALY

Date Night, Now with More Fellini

You like to maintain a well-rounded date night repertoire. You also like to drink Negronis. So you may find the Italian Film Festival, with a multi-day roster of Italian flicks never before screened in the US, to be of particular interest. Or you could just drink Negronis at a bar. 

Saturday
And Now, a Boozy Ode to Bacon
PORKY’S REVENGE

And Now, a Boozy Ode to Bacon

Bacon. Despite the best efforts of the universe, it’s not going anywhere. This pleases you. In fact, it kind of makes you want to party. So head to BaconFest for live music, troughs of cold beer and randomness like hobo wine tastings, and eating competitions. Plus a bunch of bacon.

An Evening of French-Themed Excess
FRENCH CONNECTIONS

An Evening of French-Themed Excess

You expect certain things when you visit the High Museum. But if for some reason you find yourself in the mood for something other than burlesque performances, Parisian street food, live music, DJs and handcrafted absinthe cocktails... they still have art.

Mar 26, 8pm-12am, $20 ($25 door), High Museum, 1280 Peachtree St NE, 404-733-5000

Food Trucks, Beer and... Photography
BREW POINT

Food Trucks, Beer and... Photography

Beer and photography... typically an ill-advised combo (especially when it involves the untagging of 79 Facebook pics). But tomorrow night, Red Brick brewery is hosting an opening reception for a local photography exhibit with plenty of beer, brewery tours and the Yumbii food truck presiding. So maybe just this one time.

Tuesday
Bottle Bar Saves Tuesday
SMALL WORLD

Bottle Bar Saves Tuesday

Tuesdays: you have mixed emotions. But mostly you just hate them. And while $10 for endless small bites (Mac & Cheese Spring Rolls, Tuna Sashimi...) at Buckhead Bottle Bar may or may not affect this sentiment, it probably couldn’t hurt either. Neither could a martini.
