Things to do for April 21, 2011

The Weekender

Dancing in the Streets, Italian Motorcycles and a Dollar Menu

The weekend isn’t through with you yet.

Thursday
Handsomeness in a Box, for 44% Off
PERK ALERT

Handsomeness in a Box, for 44% Off

We’ve hand-selected the finest shaving products Nickel has to offer—and we’re giving them to you for 44% off. Never before in history has such a collection of luxurious grooming material been assembled in one place. (Well, outside of Tom Selleck’s medicine cabinet...)

Like the Dollar Menu, Only Farm Burger
DOLLAR STORE

Like the Dollar Menu, Only Farm Burger

Big news: it’s Farm Burger’s birthday. Okay, not big news. Except for this part: all day today, $1 will net you things like sliders (the beef cheek and regular kind), onion rings, Terrapin Rye drafts and cans of Genesee Cream Ale. Don’t forget to send them a card.

Red Wine and Italian Motorcycles
MOTOR CITY

Red Wine and Italian Motorcycles

If you haven’t been to MODA yet, we’re going to suggest tonight. Because that’s when you’ll be guided through five decades’ worth of vintage and contemporary Italian motorcycles, glass of red in hand, while a Stanford professor of design spins anecdotal tales about each one. If anyone knows their Italian bikes, it’s Stanford professors.

Friday
Going Full Nucky Thompson
SWING SETS

Going Full Nucky Thompson

There’s a street party this weekend. You know, beer, King of Pops, bands, DJ... that kind of thing. But the DJ will be playing swing music. And that band, equally swingy. So you should probably head out there and get all Boardwalk Empire. It’s the right thing to do.

Saturday
A Very Random Eating Competition
GIRL VS. FOOD

A Very Random Eating Competition

If (and only if) you find yourself near Piedmont Park this Saturday, you may want to pop into the Nook. Partly for the $5 Manhattans and post-anniversary party. But mostly because a very petite, very lovely brunette will be eating. Competitively. Against two Samoan GSU football players. So yeah, that’s weird.

Apr 23, 6-10pm, The Nook, 1144 Piedmont Ave NE, 404-745-9222

Sunday
When It Brunches, It Pours
EVERY GIVEN SUNDAY

When It Brunches, It Pours

Lot of new brunches popping up these days. And here’s another new brunch popping up these days. It starts this Sunday at Café Circa—so you’ll head to the rooftop, light a cigar and work through Mango BBQ Salmon, Plantain Pancakes and bottomless mimosas and/or Bellinis. Let’s go with “and.”
