Things to do for July 14, 2011

The Weekender

Fast Cars, Sexed-Up Politics and Late-Night Pie

The only thing we have to fear is the weekend itself.

Thursday
How to Eat Everything in the EAV
TASTE DEEP

How to Eat Everything in the EAV

No offense to the entire city, but all these “taste of” events are getting a bit stale. Well, the East Atlanta Village has something to say on the matter. So tonight, head that way for $1 tastes from spots like Holy Taco, Urban Cannibals and the Earl. You can taste their beers, too.

Sex, Politics and a Dance Floor
BOOKED SOLID

Sex, Politics and a Dance Floor

Tonight, Tongue & Groove is throwing a book launch party. On its own, not exciting. But pepper in the fact that it’s a book about a girl sleeping her way through some of the nation’s most influential politicians, as told by the sleepee... more exciting. Oh, and the gratis cocktails should help, too. Exciting.

Jul 14, 7-10pm, no cost, Tongue & Groove, 565 Main St (at Lindbergh City Center), 404-261-2325

Friday
Fast Cars and Martinis at the Mansion
CARS AND DRIVER

Fast Cars and Martinis at the Mansion

We’re going to suggest knocking off early tomorrow and heading to the Mansion on Peachtree for a few of their new Cabernet Martinis. Oh, and if a crack team of professional drivers tries to whisk you around the city in a fleet of brand-new Aston Martins, just go with it.

Jul 15, 3-7pm, gratis ride with purchase of a Cab-Martini ($10), The Mansion on Peachtree, 3376 Peachtree Rd NE, 404-995-7500

Watching Casablanca to a Live Orchestra
BOGARTING

Watching Casablanca to a Live Orchestra

Ah, Casablanca. The gambling. The white tuxes. The Ingrid Bergman in her prime. Makes a pretty amazing date flick, really. Especially when there’s an entire live orchestra playing along in the background. Bogart and Bergman on the big screen and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra in the pit... this date might go well.

Saturday
Pie Shop Goes Late-Night in Buckhead
PIE ONE ON

Pie Shop Goes Late-Night in Buckhead

Not long ago, we told you about a girl named Mims and her pies. It was a wholesome tale. But now, things are about to get dark. Not really, but starting this weekend, they’ll be open until 1am for your late-night Fried Chorizo & Hot Chili and Chocolate Fried Pie needs. Needs.

Fridays and Saturdays until 1am, Pie Shop, 3210 E Roswell Rd, 404-841-4512
