The Weekender

April Fool’s Doughnuts, a Fried-Chicken Party and Your Pants

There’s more than one way to skin a weekend.

Thursday
It’s Spring. You’ll Be Needing New Pants.
PANTS ARMSTRONG

It’s Spring. You’ll Be Needing New Pants.

Look outside. That’s seafoam-seersucker-pants weather out there. Red poplin khakis, even. And in the interest of fortifying your closet with the necessary tools, hit the Bills Khakis Trunk Show at Miller Brothers today. They’ll be pouring wine, serving edible things and slinging pants all day.

Mar 29, until 7pm, no cost, Miller Brothers, 3207 Paces Ferry Pl, 404-233-8000

Saturday
A New Player in the Brunch Game
EGG TO DIFFER

A New Player in the Brunch Game

There’s no shortage of brunch options in this town. On that note: here’s another brunch option in this town. It’s at Cucina Asellina, where you can ply your midmorning trade with Wood-Fired Eggs, wild-mushroom omelets with house fries and, of course, plenty of cured meats. Cure being the key word.

A Fried-Chicken Party in Morningside
CHICKEN HEAD

A Fried-Chicken Party in Morningside

You’ve been hearing rumblings about poultry. Rumors of nearly a dozen of the city’s best chefs gathering in Morningside to pit their fried-chicken recipes against each other and let you taste each one. Bourbon. Beer. Live music. Yes, it’s all true. And it’s called the Mother Clucker Fried Chicken Festival. Bring backup.

You, Warhol and a Date. And a Martini.
ANDY UP

You, Warhol and a Date. And a Martini.

You’ll want to scoop up a date for this one. Because somewhere between your first martini and the last DJ set at the High this Saturday, a band will strike up. Behind it: projections of 13 of Andy Warhol’s most visually provocative screen tests in black-and-white. Bonus points if you actually watch them.

Sunday
April Fool’s by Way of Doughnut
PITY THE FOOL

April Fool’s by Way of Doughnut

Some premature congratulations are in order. You see, you’re about to win April Fool’s Day by simply calling Sublime Doughnuts and preordering one of their four April Fool’s doughnuts—one’s filled with marinara instead of jelly. Another, topped with balsamic vinegar that looks like chocolate. You get the picture. Again, congrats.
