Things to do for May 19, 2011

The Weekender

Partying in a Cemetery, Bourbon and a Yard Sale

The weekend only knows one speed... itself.

Thursday

Street Carts, Now More Bar-Like
LATE NIGHT WITH...

Street Carts, Now More Bar-Like

So the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival’s coming up. Maybe you heard. And there’s a lot going on there. But for now, let’s just focus on the late-night bourbon cart. That, and about a dozen others (STK, SweetWater, Miami’s GastroPod...) slinging their wares into the wee hours. Well, wee enough, anyway.

May 20-21, 10pm, $65, Street Cart Pavilion (corner of 12th and Peachtree), tickets here

Breaking Bread with Julian Van Winkle
WINK TANK

Breaking Bread with Julian Van Winkle

Hit Parish tomorrow night for passed bites (lardo aged in bourbon barrels, foie gras terrine...) and five courses like Charleston Stone Crab and Speckled Sea Trout with wine pairings. Oh, and bourbon god Julian Van Winkle will be there to hang out and chat booze with you. And drink it.

Saturday
Beer + Pancakes = Brick Store Yard Sale
BRICK HOUSE

Beer + Pancakes = Brick Store Yard Sale

The Brick Store Pub is doing a little spring cleaning. But they need your help. All they ask is that you show up, eat pancakes and drink beer. And maybe buy some old glassware and other randomness they’ll be unearthing from their beer vault this Saturday. Hopefully more beer.

Beer and 100 Bands... in a Cemetery
THAT’S THE SPIRIT

Beer and 100 Bands... in a Cemetery

Ah, Oakland Cemetery. Acre after acre of elaborate mausoleums, hauntingly beautiful sculptures and... bands. Head to Tunes from the Tombs for two full days of live music (over 100 bands’ worth of it), free-flowing suds and plenty of wine. You haven’t partied until you’ve cemetery-partied.

May 21-22, 11am-dusk, $10 ($15 both days), Oakland Cemetery, 248 Oakland Ave, details here

Sunday
An Afternoon. A Hotel Room. A Pool.
ROOM GOES THE DYNAMITE

An Afternoon. A Hotel Room. A Pool.

Not that we’d ever endorse a random weekend tryst... but if we did, it would probably look a lot like this. Every Sunday at the W Buckhead, $69 lands you a room for the afternoon and exclusive access to the DJ/cocktail-rich rooftop pool. Try to at least make a cameo out there.
