Dining in the Dark’s New Lease on Life

You remember Dining in the Dark: that four-course dinner series prepared by local chefs and served in total darkness by vision-impaired servers. Well, it’s over. Done. On to the next city. Unless you’re reading this, in which case you’ll have three more chances to go. Good thing you’re reading this.

Jun 23, Jul 14 and Jul 21, 7-10pm, $107, Premier Exhibition Center (Atlantic Station), 265 18th St, tickets here

Saturday
Take Your Day Date Here
ON THE MARKET

Take Your Day Date Here

So there’s this new indoor/outdoor market debuting Saturday. Which, on its own, isn’t necessarily earth-shattering intel. But throw in 100+ vendors and food trucks (Beard Bars, Tex’s Tacos) and some local musicians and... well, it’s still not earth-shattering. But we have a feeling your date may think otherwise.

Two Days of Street Cocktailing in VaHi
FEST UP

Two Days of Street Cocktailing in VaHi

Ah, Virginia Highland. There’s just something about it that makes you want to talk to birds, buy another dog and drink cold beer out of plastic cups. Enter Summerfest—two alfresco days of bands (The Whisky Gentry, Freddy Jones Band...), parades and cocktailing in the streets. And birds and dogs.

Jun 4, 10am-11pm; Jun 5, 10am-6pm, Summerfest, Virginia Ave (between N Highland Ave and Park Dr)

Monday
3 Restaurants. 3 Breweries. 1 Patio.
TRIFECTA

3 Restaurants. 3 Breweries. 1 Patio.

This Monday, the chefs from Muss & Turner’s, Leon’s Full Service and Local Three will converge upon one Buckhead patio to pit their most prized small plates—think braised beef with chocolate jus and dry-aged Wagyu—against Wild Heaven, SweetWater and Terrapin beers. You should go eat and drink that stuff.

Tuesday
Celebrating Modern Design... by Drinking
BY DESIGN

Celebrating Modern Design... by Drinking

Design, whether you like it or not, is human. Don’t worry, we don’t know what we’re talking about either... All we know is that the Design Is Human launch party is coming up, kicking off a week’s worth of modern home tours, exhibitions and design-related events with a cocktail-y, DJ-y blowout. Good enough.

Jun 7, 6-10pm, $10 (door only), Two Peachtree Pointe, 1555 Peachtree St NE, more info here
