Things to do for July 21, 2011

The Weekender

Cheerleaders. Cigars. Golf. And Then... Motown Royalty.

Roofs raise the weekend. 

Thursday
Highland Cigar and Golf. Enough Said.
GOLF CLAP

Highland Cigar and Golf. Enough Said.

Golf and cigars. Two separate entities that, when combined, become magical. And that’s why you’ll want to sign up for the self-explanatory Puffin’ and Puttin’ (we know) golf tourney. The 19th hole: Highland Cigar HQ, where you’ll find an awards ceremony and gratis beer. Also magical.

Friday
Girls Randomly Dancing in the Streets
TOUCH AND GLO

Girls Randomly Dancing in the Streets

The gloATL girls: popping up all over town these days. And if you happen to be in Midtown this Friday and/or Saturday night (Escorpión’s tequila list won’t drink itself), you may just catch their latest pop-up street performance. Although we kind of just gave it away.

Saturday
Suckling Pig and Wine on the Hooch
A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT

Suckling Pig and Wine on the Hooch

If you’re going to be outside these days, it’s probably best to be within swan diving distance of a large body of water. Ray’s on the River should do. So should live music, ample pinot tastings and whole suckling pig dishes (pork belly tacos, bacon brownies...) all day. Tube-in, tube-out optional.

Shooting Craps with Cheerleaders
CASINO ROYALE

Shooting Craps with Cheerleaders

Casino nights have always been a bit... Dunder Mifflin for your liking. We get that. But we may have actually stumbled upon a casino-y evening worthy of your time—a Westside brewery (yes, 5 Seasons) filled with blackjack, craps and roulette tables with Georgia Force cheerleaders dealing the cards. It’s a start.

Wednesday
A Night of Motown Royalty at Chastain
SWEET TEMPTATIONS

A Night of Motown Royalty at Chastain

Honestly, there’s not much to say here that the universe hasn’t already said. But here goes: the Temptations and the Four Tops are performing at Chastain on Wednesday. Their suits alone are worthy of an audience. Their dance moves transcend human understanding. It’s like the Motown Olympics. They once... sorry, we’re done now.
