Golf, Aphrodisiacs and Brunch with Benefits
The weekend is taking a knee.
400 Years of Golf at the High
You remember those old-timey golf guys. Flitting around the fairway like royalty. Making knickers look good. Well, if you’re in Midtown anytime soon, you’ll want to stop by the High to check out their Art of Golf exhibit stacked with 400 years’ worth of golf-related paintings and photos. Assuming you like golf.
Masks, Beads and Bad Decisions
Mardi Gras in New Orleans: pretty big. Mardi Gras in Atlanta: not as big. Unless, of course, you make it that way. Take, for instance, donning something purple, green and mask-y and heading to Mood Lounge’s Gras-themed party tomorrow night. They’ll have hurricanes, pisco Sazeracs, hand grenades and beads. And beads.
Making Chocolate with Your Date
Maybe you’re busy on Valentine’s Day. Maybe you just want it over with. Or maybe you’re keenly aware of the fact that an afternoon at the Ritz learning how to make your own Valrhona chocolate truffles followed by a three-course lunch will only lead to good things. Either way, it will.
It’s Called Brunch with Benefits
You know Market restaurant. And by default, you also know that they like to throw the occasional party brunch—bottomless Bloodys and mimosas. DJs. Food. Well, they’re going a bit anti-Valentine’s on this next one (note: this means maybe don’t bring a date). Can’t hurt that it’s in a hotel.
If There Were a Time for Aphrodisiacs...
Considering the inevitability of Valentine’s Day, it may be best to just embrace its more... uplifting attributes. Here to help: the aphrodisiac dinner at Three Sheets—think small plates like oysters Rockefeller, truffled deviled eggs and bananas Foster flambéed tableside. It’s like a mini fireplace that you can eat. Never mind.
