The Weekender

Moonshine, Sausage Making and Lambrusco-Fueled Ping-Pong

My weekend ’tis of thee.

Thursday
A Downtown Café with Parisian PB&Js
FRENCH OPEN

A Downtown Café with Parisian PB&Js

A French café just opened downtown. The owner/chief pastry technician hails from the Highland Bakery and Alon’s. So expect sandwiches like the Boulevard de Saint-Germain (PB&J on a French loaf) and the Boulevard des Italiens (grilled cheese on a French loaf). Hmm, there might be a trend forming here...

Now open, Le French Quarter Café, 57 Forsyth St (in the Healey Building), 404-645-7963, see the menu

A Father’s Day Sale at Bill Hallman
HALL PASS

A Father’s Day Sale at Bill Hallman

Listen, he won’t admit it, but if you get Dad another tie or coffee mug this year, he will in fact love you less. Instead, try the Bill Hallman in VaHi or Atlantic Station. They’re doing 20% to 50% off now through Father’s Day on all things collared-, fedora- and hoodie-related. Pick a shirt, any shirt.

Through Jun 17, Bill Hallman (VaHi and Atlantic Station only), 792 N Highland Ave, 404-876-6055; and 265 18th St, Ste 4170, 404-347-2690

Seeing How the Sausage Gets Made

This Saturday: a butchering class at Pine Street Market. You’ll spice, stuff and twist pork sausage, like it’s your job. Then, you’ll eat a big lunch of bacon, like it’s your job. And then you’ll take home the sausage you made, like it’s... a game-show parting gift.

Monday
Teacups Filled with Moonshine
TEA PARTY

Teacups Filled with Moonshine

There’s a new moonshine menu happening downtown. It’s styled all 1920s. So the women’s cocktails come in teacups. And the men’s drinks come in something silver-plated. Also, they won’t serve you unless you’re wearing a bowler and have one of those Rollie Fingers mustaches. Totally kidding, but still, Rollie mustache, consider it...

Wednesday
No. 246 Gets a Ping-Pong Table

No. 246 Gets a Ping-Pong Table

This can’t be a coincidence. On the same day that sparkling wine celebrates its most sacred holiday (National Lambrusco Day, naturally), No. 246 also debuts their brand-new ping-pong table. So, a party it is. With themed cocktails from Greg Best of H&F. And a bluegrass band. And an obscene amount of table tennis.
