The Weekender

A Pig Roast, a Smoked Goat and a Sale from Sid Mashburn

All hail the weekend.

Friday
Like Stealing from Sid Mashburn
SMOOTH SALE-ING

Like Stealing from Sid Mashburn

Summer is officially winding down. The proof: well, look at your calendar. Also, Sid Mashburn is having their summer sale. Which means stop by and stock up on pretty much anything canvas/short. Like canvas shorts. Or neon swim trunks. They’ll go great with your day-glo pool.

A Gallery of Bill Hallman Models

Bill Hallman. You know him. Own about five of his blazers. And tonight, there’s an exhibit opening featuring his designs. Or, more accurately, featuring pictures of exceptionally leggy women wearing his designs. You should probably stop by. For the gratis watermelon-honeysuckle cocktails. And the art.

Saturday
Having Pancakes with Will Ferrell
BRUNCH TIME

Having Pancakes with Will Ferrell

You know what goes well with Saturday mornings: blueberry pancakes. You know what goes well with blueberry pancakes: movies. CinéBistro knows this. It’s why they’ll be serving weekend brunch from now on. So go order something french toasty. And see something Will Ferrell-y. And try to laugh without choking.

Sunday
Smoked Goat on a Half-Acre City Farm
FARMVILLE

Smoked Goat on a Half-Acre City Farm

This Sunday, there’s a tiny dinner party. On a tiny farm. Right here in the city. It starts with a tour (that’s a barn, that’s some hay, tour over). Then, tomato cocktails by a Miller Union barkeep and a Georgia peachwood-smoked full goat from Octopus Bar’s chef. Overalls neither suggested nor encouraged.

The Biggest Roast Pig You’ve Ever Seen
LEI DOWN

The Biggest Roast Pig You’ve Ever Seen

There’s a time and a place for luaus. The time: Sunday night. The place: usually Hawaii. Or an Inman Park sandwich shop. Swing by with a date for tiki bar libations from Pura Vida’s Paul Calvert and a 100-pound roast pig. That’s a lot of sandwiches.
