Things to do for March 01, 2012

The Weekender

$1 Oysters, Porky’s and Off-Menu Pizza

Say hello to the weekend’s little friend.

Thursday
In Celebration of National Pig Day...

In Celebration of National Pig Day...

Not to state the obvious, but today is National Pig Day. And to celebrate, D.B.A. Barbecue is doing exactly what you’d expect them to: streaming Porky’s all night on the flat-screens. That, and rolling out a swine-centric buffet with suckling pigs, bacon-wrapped wings and Chocolate-Bacon Bread Pudding. Bacon dessert: strangely underrated.

Friday
Appointment-Only Art at the W
ART BLANCHE

Appointment-Only Art at the W

So there’s this room in the Downtown W. You need an appointment to get in. And behind the door: an ever-rotating series of exhibits from local artist Radcliffe Bailey. There’s a launch party there tomorrow night with cocktails and passed noshes from BLT Steak, followed by an after-party at Drinkshop. The things you do for art.

A Bar Is Renovated. A Party Is Thrown.

The bar at Baraonda has always been there. But it hasn’t always had those shiny leather stools, the giant “da Vinci” communal table or all those pisco cocktails (sours, Italianos...). That stuff’s new. And since no bar renovation is complete without a relaunch party, they’re having one of those. Then it’ll be complete.

Mar 2, 9-11pm, no cost, Baraonda, 710 Peachtree St NE, 404-879-9962

Saturday
Off-Menu Pizza at Cucina Asellina
EGG YOUR PARDON

Off-Menu Pizza at Cucina Asellina

Here’s an idea. Find your way to Cucina Asellina, slip into a leather banquette and promptly discard your menu. Instead, ask for the Truffle and Egg Pizza. It’s a pizza... with truffles on it... and an egg. It’s also not on the menu. You’ve never really cared for those things anyway.

Available now at Cucina Asellina, 1075 Peachtree St NE (at 12th), 404-793-0141

Sunday
When Life Gives You $1 Oysters...
SINGLES NIGHT

When Life Gives You $1 Oysters...

We’ll keep this simple: $1 oysters. And to get to them, you’ll need to head to Fig Jam on Sunday nights, where you’ll pluck your way through a rotating bivalve selection like Blue Point, Kumamoto and Chincoteague. Which, when loosely translated, means “who cares... dollar oysters.”

Sundays, 4-10pm, Fig Jam, 1745 Peachtree St NE, 404-724-9100
