Things to do for May 26, 2011

The Weekender

Wild Animals, Futbol and a Tequila Dinner

The weekend just strong-armed Monday.

Thursday
Tequila + Dinner = Tequila Dinner
TEQUILA SUNSET

Tequila + Dinner = Tequila Dinner

We just looked into your future... it involves tequila. And you’ll find it at the Shed’s tequila dinner with dishes like grilled octopus salad and beer-marinated crab ceviche paired with tequila cocktails. Fair warning: you may be subjected to a quick predinner tequila lecture. Be strong.

Saturday
Beer, DJs and a Bunch of Wildlife
LIONS, TIGERS AND BEERS

Beer, DJs and a Bunch of Wildlife

It’s one thing to sample over 70 beers (Ommegang, Birra Moretti...) and listen to live music and DJs all night. We’re assuming it’s another to do it in front of a pride of pissed-off lions. Either way, Brew at the Zoo is this weekend. So you can find out there.

20 Screens of Futbol at Fadó
FINAL FANTASY

20 Screens of Futbol at Fadó

The World Cup: a fleeting wrinkle in time by now. But just when you thought your futbol detox was over, enter the UEFA Champions League finals. Head to Fadó this Saturday, where the Barcelona vs. Manchester United match will be streaming on all 20 flat-screens. This could get pint-y.

May 28, 2:30pm, Fadó, 273 Buckhead Ave, 404-841-0066

Eight Hours of Rooftop Pool-ing
ROOF POSITIVE

Eight Hours of Rooftop Pool-ing

Wild animals and soccer aside, it wouldn’t be Memorial Day weekend without the requisite amount of poolside debauchery. Correction: rooftop poolside debauchery. The W Downtown is throwing a DJ- and cocktail-rich soiree for eight straight hours, and we think you should be there. You’re not above swimming in white pants.

May 28, noon-8pm, $10, W Downtown, 45 Ivan Allen Jr Blvd, 16th Floor, 404-582-5800

Sunday
A Throwdown at Park Tavern
CENTRAL PARK

A Throwdown at Park Tavern

This may come as a total shock to you, but Park Tavern is throwing a party this weekend. We know, weird. Expect a dizzying lineup of cover bands, $8 Southern BBQ plates and makeshift bars at every turn. Might want to start looking for a good Monday brunch spot.
