Things to do for May 12, 2011

The Weekender

Strawberries for Dinner, 150 Beers and Boozy Art

The weekend is paging Dr. Rosenweekend.

Thursday
Tonight at T&G, Buckhead Lives (Again)
IT’S ALIVE

Tonight at T&G, Buckhead Lives (Again)

Once upon a time, the Buckhead bar scene was actually... a scene. Then somebody tore it down. But tonight, Paul Hagedorn will unleash his photographic memoirs of pre-demolition Buckhead, and the ghosts of nightlife past (Mako’s swing girls, Uranus’s bubble machine...) will be summoned one last time. Like it or not.

May 12, 8pm-midnight, Tongue & Groove, 565 Main St (at Lindbergh City Center), 404-261-2325

Saturday
Beer, Art and Random Dancing Girls
ART BLANCHE

Beer, Art and Random Dancing Girls

You should bid on some art this weekend. Preferably while drinking a bunch of beer, eating a bunch of food and watching a bunch of potentially questionable “acts of intrigue” from the likes of gloATL and Dad’s Garage and live music by the Muleskinner MacQueen Trio. You never miss an MMT show.

The Perimeter Gets All... Beer-y
FEST CONTROL

The Perimeter Gets All... Beer-y

Chances are you’ve dropped in on the Dunwoody Beer Fest in summers past. Good call. So good, in fact, that you’ll probably want to consider doing it again this Saturday. Just look for the parking lot with a big tent, bands and about 150 beers and liquors. Not that you wouldn’t.

May 14, 2-7pm, $30, 4400 Ashford-Dunwoody Rd (Perimeter Mall parking lot), tickets here

Sunday
Paying Whatever You Want for Brunch
THE PRICE IS RIGHT

Paying Whatever You Want for Brunch

Fact: you get what you pay for. Opinion: you should pay whatever you want for what you get. Good news: your opinion has been heard. Starting Sunday at Café Jonah and the Magical Attic, you’ll literally name your price for brunch. Whatever “magic” is happening in that attic, it’s working.

Wednesday
Going Full Strawberry at Rosebud
STRAWBERRY FIELDS

Going Full Strawberry at Rosebud

Consider the strawberry. Red, delicious... red. Anyway, take a date to Rosebud’s strawberry-centric dinner for dishes like Buttermilk Fried Quail Breast with strawberry glaze and sockeye salmon with gingered strawberry relish. We expect a full report Thursday morning.
