The Weekender

Bocce, French Movies and a Korean Bathhouse

Nobody puts the weekend in a corner.

Thursday
An Evening of Frenchery Under the Stars
FRANCE ENCOUNTER

An Evening of Frenchery Under the Stars

In a few hours, it will be Thursday night. Or as you like to call it... well, Thursday night. But if anything’s worth celebrating once every six days, it’s Weekend’s Eve. On the docket tonight: a French-themed happy hour followed by French-themed short films under the stars. With your French-themed date.

If You Build It, They Will Bocce
COURT’S IN SESSION

If You Build It, They Will Bocce

You remember Double Zero. It’s that place with all the cheese gelato, barrel-aged Negronis and wood-fired pies. But as of today, it’s also the place with all the bocce. Because they’ve just finished building two glorious thunderdomes of bocce battle out on the patio. Courts. They’re actually just courts.

Friday
Just an Unnecessary Amount of Cheese
THE CHEESE KNEES

Just an Unnecessary Amount of Cheese

Dear cheese: you’re delicious. We can put you on crackers, dip you in things... You deserve your own week. A week when cheesemakers could come from all around the nation to share different versions of you on the Westside. (Which reminds us, it’s Cheese Week at Star Provisions.)

Sunday
Road-Tripping to a Korean Bathhouse
BATH TIME

Road-Tripping to a Korean Bathhouse

Let’s get you to a spa. Or better yet, a co-ed Korean bathhouse with heated mineral pools, green tea massages and seven tricked-out dry spa chambers. The caveat: it’s in Duluth. The reverse-caveat: you’ll be taking a shuttle from Midtown. You can check “co-ed bathhouse road trip” off your bucket list now.

Next Saturday
Scavenging the Streets of the O4W
LOST CITY OF ATLANTA

Scavenging the Streets of the O4W

Let’s raise a glass to the Old Fourth Ward. Clandestine land of hidden rooftops, graffiti-strewn cocktail houses... and running around with a teammate gathering photographic evidence of its deepest, darkest secrets. As for the latter, just chalk it up to the scavenger hunt-y ways of the O4W Challenge. Or day drinking.
