Things to do for June 21, 2012
One of Those Fried-Chicken and Champagne Weekends
That’s it, the weekend is turning this damn car around.
Two-Buck Fried Chicken at Norma’s Cafe
Norma’s: celebrating their 56th birthday today. You: a big fan of blowing out candles. Also: things that are fried. To commemorate the special occasion, stop by the diner and feast on chicken-fried steak and mashed potatoes for under two dollars. Or under 40 nickels.
40% Off Billy Reid
Billy Reid’s got your new summer clothes, and a bunch of them are 40% off. Which means you can score some marked-down Savannah wingtips to pair with a cotton polo and still have money left over for a gentlemanly button-down. Pants are, of course, optional.
A Bucket of Sissy’s Chicken to Go
Four words: Sissy’s fried-chicken takeaway. Thirty more words: starting tomorrow, you can stop by this Southern kitchen’s daily happy hour for $6 Old Fashioneds and to-go buckets overflowing with their buttermilk-brined fried chicken. Buttermilk, it’s a glorious thing.
A Couch Worthy of the Queen
There’s a British gent off Henderson who’s crafting some handsome handmade furniture. The kind of stuff that’s great if you have a study. Or a living room. Think bookcases made of English timber and tufted couches upholstered with the Union Jack. Pippa has to sit somewhere.
A Meal Consisting Mostly of Champagne
If you’ve got one complaint about Sunday afternoons, it’s that they don’t feel like Saturday nights. That changes this weekend. 31’s Sundaze brunch party features eggs Benedict and absurd amounts of champagne. Also, a DJ. And lax rules about dancing on your table.
