Perks is hooking you up with a simple, under-the-radar afternoon of... driving five of the world’s greatest automobiles, for a fraction of the going rate. We’re also getting you 30% off the hot stuff from the Brooklyn Salsa Company for Cinco de Mayo, and a personal trainer to strap to your waist.
Things to do for April 26, 2012
Tequilas and Tacos. Music and Beer. Ice and Cream.
The weekend won’t stop till you say “when.”
A Cinco de Mayo Warm-Up
You don’t need a reason to eat tacos. But we’re giving you one anyway. Cinco de Mayo is next Saturday. So tonight you train at Atkins Park with a multicourse barrage of duck confit tostados, chicarrones taquitos and a shot of chilled añejo for dessert. Just remember to stretch first.
Sipping Beers and Listening to Journey
Monday’s random 40-degree weather was traumatizing. So much so that we totally understand if you need to leave town this weekend and go to Lake Lanier. You know, land of bratwurst vendors, impromptu yacht parties, beer tastings and Journey cover bands. Well, at least it will be on Saturday.
Liver Pâté Under the Stars
Let’s be honest. You go to concerts at Chastain for the picnics, not the music. So allow us to turn you on to a little secret weapon: Cibo E Beve will now deliver staples like shrimp cocktail, chicken liver pâté and candles right to the concert grounds. Candles: the new plastic lighter.
Holeman & Finch Turns Four
Four years ago, you welcomed a beautiful baby Holeman & Finch into the world. Sunday, you’ll celebrate the blessed occasion with a plateau of oysters, a board of charcuterie and a cake or two inspired by some famous cocktails. Old Fashioned–flavored Funfetti: perhaps. Or perhaps not.
Not Paying for Ice Cream at Morelli’s
You’re never going to believe this, but... Morelli’s is also turning four this Sunday. Of course, they’re keeping the festivities very low-key. Just your average, run-of-the-mill, three-hour gratis ice cream binge (we suggest multiple scoops of maple bacon). Followed by your average, run-of-the-mill, three-hour brain freeze.
