Things to do for May 17, 2012
Cemetery Concerts, Pig Ear Sandwiches and Smooth, Smooth Jazz
Hold me closer, tiny weekend.
Drinking Martinis and Looking at Art
So, the Living Room (the one at the W Midtown) is transforming into an art gallery tonight. And you’ll care because they’ve got a bar full of martinis set up for the viewing and a live graffiti demonstration. No word if Banksy has RSVP’d yet.
A Canned Food Version of Cannes
Imagine Cannes. Okay, now imagine Cannes as a canned food drive in an Old Fourth park. Perfect. That’s your plan for tomorrow night. Show up with a donation, score some concessions (cold beer and Creole food) and secure a prime seat for one of the outdoor movie screenings. We promise, no subtitles.
Pig Ears. It’s What’s for Lunch.
Fact: there aren’t enough smoked-pig-ear sandwich spots in this town. Fix: the arrival of the Big Apple Inn—a legendary Mississippi takeout joint that’s famous for just that. Also, sausages, bologna, hot dogs, tamales, hamburgers, ice cream and side salads. Just kidding, there are no side salads.
Lunch and Smooth Jazz
Ray’s on the River. Your go-to for big client lunches. Every day except this Saturday. Then, it’ll be your go-to for big electric-violin concerts. Bring a date, grab two seats down by the Chattahoochee and prepare for the greatest violin concert of your life. Also, the only violin concert of your life.
A 100-Act Concert in a Cemetery
Great places to see a concert: Red Rocks. The Garden. A local cemetery. Yes, there’s actually a 100-act music festival taking place amid the Oakland Cemetery mausoleums this weekend. There’ll be food trucks. There’ll be beer. There’ll be the most realistic “Thriller” performance of all time.
