The Weekender

Pinup Girls, Cigar Girls and a New Rooftop Party

The weekend is its own father.

Thursday
30% Off the Season’s Latest Swimwear
PERK ALERT

30% Off the Season’s Latest Swimwear

Summer’s here and you wouldn’t mind a little recreational dipping. Perks gets that, and we’ve got you covered... from waist to knee. With Onia’s classic line of swimsuits and board shorts—they’re trim, handsome and, for you, 30% off. Any more would be skinny dipping.

Friday
A New Rooftop Party at the Glenn
FLIPPING OUT

A New Rooftop Party at the Glenn

You should be on a rooftop this Friday. Better yet, one of the top rooftop bars in the world (no, really, there was a vote). Hit SkyLounge at the Glenn for their inaugural Flip-Flop Fridays for DJs and $5 cocktails like the G5 (tequila, elderflower, lime). You can wear shoes.

A Party for Dogs. You Can Go, Too.
DOGGIN’ IT

A Party for Dogs. You Can Go, Too.

Dogs. You love the little guys. They’re loyal, hilarious-looking and, most importantly, tend to draw the right kind of crowd. Especially if you sequester their services for the launch of Der Biergarten’s new Dog Patio tomorrow night. Expect DJs, beer pong, shuffleboard and gratuitous stein-waving. Thanks, dogs.

Jun 17, 6-9pm, $5 donation suggested, Der Biergarten, 300 Marietta St, 404-521-2728

Saturday
Morelli’s Gets All Dining Room on Us
ICE WIDE OPEN

Morelli’s Gets All Dining Room on Us

The takeout-only window at Morelli’s: solid. Yet somehow a double scoop of Chocolate Bourbon cream demands more. The new Morelli’s (finally) opens this Saturday, complete with an actual dining room and additions like smoothies, frappés and a milkshake/sundae bar curated by chef Kevin Gillespie. Chef-y ice cream, always a good move.

Opens Jun 18, Morelli’s, 1220 Caroline St (in the Edgewood Shopping District), 404-584-2500

Pinup Girls, Bikinis and Muscle Cars
SWEET LU

Pinup Girls, Bikinis and Muscle Cars

Take one part Hawaii Five-0, equal parts James Dean and The Outsiders, then throw in a bunch of mai tais... and you’ve got yourself a Rockabilly Luau. Think pinup girl swimsuit contests, a pre-’68 car show, Tahitian dancers and too many bands to mention. We’ll make an exception for the Pelvis Breastlies.

Sunday
Just You and Dad. And Cigar Girls.
DAD THE IMPALER

Just You and Dad. And Cigar Girls.

Big day for Pops coming up. Allow us to suggest sealing the bond with whiskey. And gratis cigars. And cigar girls to light them for you. Hit Deckard’s for all of the above, along with all-you-can-eat/drink finger food, beer and whiskey for $35 while it lasts. Tip: it won’t.
