The Weekender

Fat Tuesdays, Top Hats and 60 Beers to Go

The weekend fought the law and the weekend won.

Thursday
Planning for Your Future: Beer Edition
BEER HERE

Planning for Your Future: Beer Edition

February. Seems a bit... next month-ish. But we just thought you’d appreciate a little heads-up that VIP tickets for the Winter Beer Carnival just became available. And they tend to go fast. Something about 100 beers, DJs, randomly amazing carnival games and 100 beers. They’re also going to have about 100 beers.

Friday
And Now, an Interpretive Dance Date
DANCE ENCOUNTER

And Now, an Interpretive Dance Date

GloATL. You can’t get enough of those girls. Jerking all around. Making faces at you. Generally just being dance-y and strange. And since you’ve already got reservations at Quinones tomorrow night, you may as well catch their latest performance right down the road before dinner. Nothing says romance like interpretive dance.

Saturday
Partying Like It’s 1935
HATS OFF

Partying Like It’s 1935

So there’s this movie called Top Hat. Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire are in it. The interesting part: the Strand Theatre is throwing a little 1930s-style bash in its honor (it was the first movie ever screened there). You know... cocktails. Top hats. That old Hollywood vibe. Might want to go full-cane for this one.

Sunday
The Southeast’s Largest Growler Wall
GROWL PLAY

The Southeast’s Largest Growler Wall

Seeing as Hop City was the first spot to introduce beer growlers to Atlanta, it only makes sense that they would expand their existing tap wall from 16 to 60 beers. So they’re going ahead and doing that. They’ll have about 40 new beers by Sunday with the rest right behind. Be strong.

Available starting Jan 8, Hop City, 1000 Marietta St, Ste 302, 404-350-9998

Tuesday
Getting All Fat Tuesday at Family Dog
FAT CHANCE

Getting All Fat Tuesday at Family Dog

There’s not much that can make Tuesdays okay. And honestly, this is no exception. But shelling out a paltry $10 for a po’boy and a cup of gumbo (or whatever NOLA-themed noshery the chef feels like doling out that day) at the Family Dog should at least soften the blow. Kind of.
