The Weekender

Tuxedo Soccer, Too Much BBQ and Lasers

There’s no crying in the weekend.

Thursday
Friday
Art Meets Experimentation. Godspeed.
ART BLANCHE

Art Meets Experimentation. Godspeed.

Strange things are afoot in Castleberry Hill. More than usual, that is. Because tonight, you’ll find yourself wandering the streets surrounded by towering art projections on abandoned buildings, lasers, a lantern parade and, of course, people just randomly pouring iron. And puppets, but we’ve already gone too far.

An Inappropriate Amount of BBQ
YOUR ’CUE

An Inappropriate Amount of BBQ

When push comes to shove, you’re okay with eating ribs and drinking beer. And if, say, 40 restaurants and amateur BBQ-smiths felt like competing for your approval with brisket, pulled pork and whole hogs, you’d consider taking one for the team. Anyway, that’s happening this weekend. Sorry.

Saturday
A Sudsy Kickoff for Ponce City Market
ON THE MARKET

A Sudsy Kickoff for Ponce City Market

The largest abandoned building in the galaxy (sorry, Atlanta) is about to become a lot less abandoned. Mostly because there’s a huge party there this weekend—think 14 chefs (Rathbun, Acheson...), live music from Shawn Mullins and tours of the building itself. Which may or may not take seven weeks.

Sunday
Soccer + Tuxedos = This
TUX CAPACITOR

Soccer + Tuxedos = This

There’s a black-tie affair coming up we thought you should know about. It’s on a soccer field. Which can only mean one thing: awkward. Also: brilliant. Behold the Black Tie Soccer Game, your chance to... well, watch people play soccer in tuxedos. Consider it R&D for your wetsuit croquet league. 

Next Thursday
The UD Endless Summer Soiree Is Here
WHO’S YOUR DADDY

The UD Endless Summer Soiree Is Here

We’ve known each other for a while now. And honestly, it’s high time we sealed this bond with a little UD-style bash. Meet us at the Goat Farm next Thursday and expect anything from whole hogs with our “Chefettes” to DJs and gloATL performances. And with any luck... a little regret. Drinks on us.

Oct 6, 7-11pm, no cost, UrbanDaddy and Heineken Light Present Endless Summer at the Goat Farm, 1200 Foster St, RSVP here
