This week we’re getting you exclusives on: jogging shoes from one of the greatest places ever—1980s Finland; a handsome, handmade suede football; and a rocket-scientist-designed pocket speaker. Plus, we’re giving you the VIP treatment in NYC—replete with a hotel room, welcome champagne, a poolside cabana and bottle service.
Things to do for September 29, 2011
Tuxedo Soccer, Too Much BBQ and Lasers
There’s no crying in the weekend.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
