The Weekender

Endless Oysters, a Boozy 5K and an Art Circus

The weekend challenges you to a staring contest.

Thursday
Friday
Hey Look, It’s an Art Circus
CIRCUS AREA

Hey Look, It’s an Art Circus

Art. It’s whatever you want it to be, really. Up to and including a good excuse to drink a bunch of wine. Head to Castleberry Hill for an outdoor soiree involving photography projected drive-in style, live acoustic music, wine tastings and, of course... art in the trees. Whatever that means.

Apr 8, 7-11pm, $10 for 10 wine tastings, Wine Shoe, 339 Nelson St SW, 404-577-2000

Saturday
Rosebud Throws an Oyster Roast
PROPOSING A ROAST

Rosebud Throws an Oyster Roast

The angry chef has been partying a lot lately. And by default, so have you. So between whiskey flights at his newly minted Family Dog, you’ll want to head across the street to Rosebud for live music, ever so much beer and endless oysters. They make a good whiskey back.

Apr 9, 2pm, $35, Rosebud, 1397 N Highland Ave, 404-347-9747

Running, Followed by Drinking
AMAZING RACE

Running, Followed by Drinking

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is a priority of yours. So is beer. Which leads us to believe this little 5K-turned-pub-crawl may hit your sweet spot. After a quick towel off, you’ll find yourself scouring the EAV, hitting all points of boozy interest along the way. And bars.

Sunday
The Latest in a Long Line of Brunches
SUNDAY BEST

The Latest in a Long Line of Brunches

Yes, we realize we already sent you to H. Harper Station last week. But the past is the past. For now, let’s just focus on their new brunch. Look for bacon and banana pancakes, Egg Pie and their new Bloody, which comes with a pony of beer. Also, you’re welcome.

Monday
The Octane Pocket Bar Is Here
POCKET MAN

The Octane Pocket Bar Is Here

Let’s talk about Monday. Okay, that’s enough talk about Monday. Oh, except that’s when Octane opens its new Pocket Bar in the BOA Plaza. Look for the same epic coffee, donuts from Sublime and H&F pastries that you’ve come to expect on the Westside. Just maybe less tattoos.
