The Weekender

Scorsese and a Mechanical Bull: Sounds Like the Weekend

Fishing would rather be the weekend.

Thursday
It’s Okay to Party. It’s for the Kids.
CHARITY CASE

It’s Okay to Party. It’s for the Kids.

You’re going to a Low Country boil tonight. It’ll be fun... you’re totally going. Because if you don’t eat shrimp and listen to live music, the children of Decatur won’t get any smarter. And for every Victory beer you don’t drink, a student will weep. The Decatur Education Foundation needs you. Now go do some good.

Friday
When Mechanical Bull Meets Art Gallery
COWBOY UP

When Mechanical Bull Meets Art Gallery

And now, some word association. We’ll say a few words, and you tell us what pops into your head. Here goes: blackjack, roulette, cowgirls, cocktails, Journey cover band, 15 chefs, mechanical bull. If you said, “Really random Western-themed gala in an art gallery,” congratulations... you get to go now.

Saturday
For Krog Bar Is a Jolly Good Fellow
A KROG’S LIFE

For Krog Bar Is a Jolly Good Fellow

Krog Bar is turning six this weekend. And you know what that means... they opened six years ago. Also, they’re throwing another Rathbun-y bash with a whole pig, paella and about as much wine as you would expect from a wine bar. Which, for the record, is a lot.

Going to a Movie, Standard. This, Not.
SCREEN LIVING

Going to a Movie, Standard. This, Not.

The Modern Masters of Film movie screening series starts this Saturday at the High. Fine. But also be advised that re-upping your dinner-and-a-movie scenarios by way of super-rare 35mm flicks directed by anyone from D.W. Griffith to Martin Scorsese tends to have its privileges. Culture plays.

Saturdays, Oct 15-Nov 5, 2pm ($5) and 8pm ($7), High Museum (Richard H. Rich Theatre), 1280 Peachtree St NE, 404-733-4200, tickets here

Running into Dancers on a Hiking Trail
TRAIL OF CHEERS

Running into Dancers on a Hiking Trail

The fall date-hike. It’s nice. Usually pays off. But let’s make things interesting, shall we. There’s this hike... it involves navigating through the Baker Woodlands ravine. But along the way you’ll be following signs, which will lead you to pockets of random dance performers hidden throughout the woods. It’s like Bear Grylls meets Broadway.
