We heard you’re headed to the beach. Here’s 20% off a custom-tailored surfboard, c/o Swami’s and Paul Smith, to help. Also: limited-edition boat shoes from Rancourt and 28% off the best damn umbrella in the world from Blunt. Hey, when it rains, it pours.
Things to do for May 24, 2012
Barbecues, Le Cirque and an Apocalyptic Water Balloon Fight
Two is a party, three is a weekend.
You’ve Got a Date. Here’s an Art Show.
So there’s this art show about waves going down tonight at a boutique shop in Buckhead. And you need to know about this because A) there’s a DJ, B) there’s a patio, and C) there are cocktails. Also, a bunch of purses and earrings on sale. But again, cocktails...
Le Cirque Comes to the Buckhead Club
New York and Atlanta have made a trade. Tomorrow, Atlanta gets one with Le Cirque (the legendary Manhattan French restaurant) and New York gets nothing. So, you: eating things like Foie Gras de Canard Confit and, New York: well, they still get nothing. Yes, it was a rip-off.
Celebrating the End of the World
So there’s a party this weekend to celebrate the Mayan apocalypse (you can roll your eyes, it’s okay). Except this one, it’s different. Better. Because, well, it’s got variety shows, water balloon fights and a fallout shelter’s worth of beer. You know, the eradication of earth should really happen more often.
Your Jeans: Now from a Horse Stable
You can never not use a pair of jeans. Which is why we’re sending you into a horse stable on Saturday (obviously). See, a bunch of artisans have set up shop there this weekend to peddle things like soaps, antiques and reclaimed designer jeans. You’re there for the jeans. Also, the pony rides.
How You’ll Spend the Third Day
The Memorial Day spirit is strong within you. Also strong within you: the yearning for slowly smoked barbecue food. Which is why you’ll cap off the holiday weekend at a park cookout with the folks from P’cheen and the not-yet-open Bone Lick BBQ. They’ll provide the ribs, you’ll provide the cold ones.
