Things to do for March 08, 2012
Prohibition, Half-Nakedness and 90 Beers
The weekend knows a guy.
Atkins Park in VaHi: old bar. Ninety years this week, actually. Which means they were around during Prohibition. Which also means (say it with us)... Prohibition party. Expect performances by Blair Crimmins & the Hookers, Boardwalk Empire episodes streaming all night, old-school cocktails and flapper costumes everywhere. Shine your brogues. Shine them now.
Should you find yourself in Decatur this weekend, you’ll quickly notice a most intriguing development... burlesque dancers. Everywhere. Chalk it up to the Southern Fried Burlesque Fest, a four-day celebration of all things pastie—think endless performances, pageants and, yes, even classes and seminars. Might want to consider bringing a date.
In short: you’re about to taste 90 beers crafted by amateur brewers from all over the city. In shorter: that’s impossible. So we’d recommend choosing your pints wisely at SweetWater’s Brew Your Cask Off fest. Grab a glass, listen to some local bands (Betsy Franck & the Bareknuckle Band, Like a Locomotive...) and sample away. And away.
Johann Sebastian Bach Meets Tasty Licks
Well, this should be interesting. Three musicians, each with a particular affinity for full-on metal guitar shredding, will convene this weekend at the Academy Theatre in Avondale Estates. To play classical music. You haven’t lived until you’ve heard Bach in Cannibal Corpse minor.
Mondays Are for Lovers. And Whole Pigs.
From now on, you should consider going to the Iberian Pig every Monday night. Because that’s when they’ll be carving up suckling pigs in the dining room. It’s simple: show up, find the table with an animal on it and grace your plate with pork and jus. Unless you’re allergic to jus.
