New York: the city that never sleeps. So we’re booking you a weekend at the decadent sleep-optional Gramercy Park Hotel and throwing in $200 for room service—yes, they serve suckling pig. Plus, we’ve got the exclusive on Swiss-made masterpieces from Skywatch and summer-ready sneaks from Warrior Footwear.
Things to do for July 14, 2011
Fast Cars, Sexed-Up Politics and Late-Night Pie
The only thing we have to fear is the weekend itself.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
