Things to do for July 19, 2012

The Weekender

Björk, Pork and a Sequel to Bastille Day

The dark weekend rises.

Thursday
Drinking Green Tea... by Way of Beer
CASK ANYTHING

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.

Friday
Watching Dancers Dance to Björk
BOOGIE NIGHTS

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.

Saturday
The French Revolution... Returns
DÉJÀ VU

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.

Tuesday
Kicking Off Fashion Week in Buckhead
TIMELY FASHION

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.

Next Saturday
BBQ Hog. The West Tennessee Way.
SWINE CONNOISSEUR

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.
