The Weekender

Gratis Burgers, a Secret Dinner and New Beer

The weekend has a case of the weekends.

Thursday
Friday
African Shenanigans in a Secret Location
AFRICA BAMBAATAA

African Shenanigans in a Secret Location

Mysterious dinners in undisclosed locations. You’ve been there. And you want to go there again. Which works out, because here comes one now. It’s called African Night. And, without killing you, we can tell you the following: drinking. Drumming. Dancing. Ethiopian coffee ceremonies. Oh, and a bunch of African food.

Taking reservations now for Aug 20, 6-9pm, $30, location TBA (Emory/Druid Hills area), tickets here

Saturday
The Sid Mashburn Summer Sale Is Now
MASH OF THE TITANS

The Sid Mashburn Summer Sale Is Now

Sid Mashburn. Okay, we’re done... have a nice weekend. Actually, there’s one more thing. He’s having a sale. Now. But since you’ll need ample time to sift through those checked popovers, canvas shorts and summer blazers at 25% off (they don’t sale often), Saturday should do. And/or the next two to three weeks.

Ongoing (call for updates), Sid Mashburn, 1198 Howell Mill Rd, 404-350-7135

Monday
Two-for-One Burgers at Grindhouse
GRIND AMBITION

Two-for-One Burgers at Grindhouse

The burgers at Grindhouse: strong to very strong. So it stands to reason that Monday night, say, sometime after 8pm, would be a good time to consume them. Mostly because that’s when you’ll be privy to any burger on the menu two-for-one-style. Bringing friends optional.

The Little Brewery That Could Arrives
MONDAY FUNDAY

The Little Brewery That Could Arrives

Long, long ago, we introduced you to a little brewery startup called Monday Night Brewing. Well, they’re all grown up now. And starting Monday, you can take the goods home—growlers of Eye Patch Ale, Drafty Kilt Scotch Ale—for the first time ever. They’re also throwing launch parties all over town. Sounds about right.

Wednesday
Six Bands. One Album. One Night.
COLLECTIVE SOUL

Six Bands. One Album. One Night.

So there’s this group called the ATL Collective. They pay homage to classic albums (think Tupelo Honey) by bringing a bunch of bands together to individually perform the whole album, top to bottom. Next up: London Calling by the Clash. Which reminds us, they’ll have fish-and-chips there, too.
