The Weekender

A New Winery, a New Donut Shop and the Best Food at Turner Field

Boldly going where no weekend has gone before.

Friday
Bacon Donuts in Decatur
HOLE NUMBERS

Bacon Donuts in Decatur

Yes, it’s officially pool season/summer/naked time. Coincidentally: a new little donut shop just opened in Decatur. It’s got salted caramel donuts with Spotted Trotter bacon crumbles on top. And brownie ice cream sandwiches. And red velvet donuts. And... about that naked time...

Happy Birthday, D.B.A.
TRIPLE PLAY

Happy Birthday, D.B.A.

D.B.A.’s age as of today: three. The result of this benchmark: $3 drink specials. They’ll be partying all weekend with help from blues bands, habanero moonshine Bloodys and barbecue (obviously). Speaking of which, they’ve also been doing a bacon happy hour. Three magic words, those.

A Farmers’ Market After Dark
FREE MARKET

A Farmers’ Market After Dark

Tonight, Peachtree Road Farmers Market is going to open. The reason: well, a little live bluegrass, a couple of food trucks and a mini Iron Chef competition using market-sourced food. Your job will be to judge. And by proxy, to eat.

Saturday
A New Vineyard in North Georgia
RED RED WINE

A New Vineyard in North Georgia

Cause: a new vineyard just opened. Effect: they’re having a grand-opening party tomorrow. Cause: you heading up to the North Georgia mountains for the festivities (hors d’oeuvres, a country band, gratis tastings). Effect: you getting a lift back from the North Georgia mountains.

Turner Field: Now Crawling with Chefs
BRAVE NEW WORLD

Turner Field: Now Crawling with Chefs

The Turner Field luxury suites. Great place to catch a ball game. Also, eat. So Kevin Rathbun (with a bunch of other chefs) is going to host a series of food demos there this season. The meals: themed around whatever visiting team is in town. Now, quickly, someone move the Pirates to Italy.
