Things to do for August 23, 2012

The Weekender

Bivalves, Pork Butt and Women Wearing Only Paint

That’s the way the weekend crumbles.

Thursday
Half-Off Oysters at Ocean Prime
HEART VALVE

Half-Off Oysters at Ocean Prime

Oysters. Huge in the summer. And, hey, what do you know, it’s summer right now. So beginning tonight, Ocean Prime is slinging bivalves like Fanny Bay, Blue Point and Royal Miyagi at half price in their piano bar. Seems like something you should aggressively be taking advantage of.

Thursdays, 5-10pm, Ocean Prime, 3102 Piedmont Rd NE, 404-846-0505

Saturday
One of Those Gigantic Pig Roasts
SWINE DINING

One of Those Gigantic Pig Roasts

Shoulders. Butts. Ribs. Bellies. All things you can appreciate. Specifically, on a pig. More specifically, on the one you’ll be eating this Saturday. That’s right, it’s time for Cypress Street’s end-of-summer pig roast/beer truck/live music soiree. You love goodbyes.

A Feast of Global Proportions
WELCOME PARTY

A Feast of Global Proportions

A trio of chefs is starting a pop-up dinner/catering business (they’re all Atlanta Underground Market alums), and you’re invited to their first official meal. It’s in a garden. It involves a wine tasting. And it’s featuring a series of courses from exotic locations. Like Madagascar and Indonesia and not Cleveland.

Frisky Doings at Halo
HALO BEAUTIFUL

Frisky Doings at Halo

Halo is having an anniversary party. Or at least that’s what they’re calling a Saturday night of cognac cocktails and body-painted Halo angels. Also, there’ll be passed-around bites from Cypress Street. We suspect leftover pig...

Sunday
Polo and Day Drinking
HORSING AROUND

Polo and Day Drinking

You sort of understand the rules to polo. People ride on horses, hitting a ball... while you sit on a picnic blanket dressed in head-to-toe seersucker and sip a bunch of champagne. Great, sounds like you’re ready for Sunday. There’s a match taking place in OTP. Show ’em how it’s done.
