Things to do for July 19, 2012
Björk, Pork and a Sequel to Bastille Day
The dark weekend rises.
Drinking Green Tea... by Way of Beer
Beer. That stuff tastes pretty good. Also, that stuff usually doesn’t have green tea in it. Which means: tonight, not a usual night. The Porter Beer Bar is tapping a brand-new Asian-inspired cask of Terrapin. Look for top notes of rice, ginger and green tea. You’re all about top notes.
Watching Dancers Dance to Björk
You know that we would never send you to an interpretive dance show unless there was a perfectly good reason. Well, tomorrow night, we’re sending you to an interpretive dance show. And here’s the perfectly good reason. They’re performing everything from Björk to dubstep. Sort of seems like a thing nobody should miss.
The French Revolution... Returns
Bastille Day was fun. You drank champagne. You ate brie. You didn’t punch a mime in the face. So, what the heck, let’s do it again on Saturday. There’s a frenchified party on an 18th-floor terrace in Atlantic Station. Live jazz. Red wine. It’s the best kind of instant replay.
Kicking Off Fashion Week in Buckhead
In case you didn’t know, Atlanta has a Fashion Week. And Fashion Weeks have international models. And international models, well, they’d probably be at an event like Buckhead Bottle Bar’s Fashion Week kickoff soiree. Do whatever you’d like with this information.
BBQ Hog. The West Tennessee Way.
Meet Carey “Peg Leg Porker” Bringle. Chef from Nashville. Incredible nickname. Next Saturday, he’s coming to Atlanta to cook you a four-course dinner... of the all-you-can-eat ’cue variety. The coup de grâce: a 24-hour hickory-smoked whole hog. Oh, Peg Leg Porker, you shouldn’t have.
