The Weekender

All the Chili, Fried Chicken and Crustless PB&J You Can Handle

If you don’t like the weekend, wait a minute, it’ll change.

Thursday
Bison Burgers on the Westside
WESTBOUND AND DOWN

Bison Burgers on the Westside

Swit Bakery. It’s gone. You know this. You’ve said your goodbyes. And now you’re ready to welcome something new in its place. That something: West & Mill Bistro Bar. Their deal: bison burgers, cold beers and weekend brunching. Good to know Swit didn’t die in vain.

The Pinewood, Now Brown-Bagging It
RIDING THE PINE

The Pinewood, Now Brown-Bagging It

No one can pack a lunch like Mom did. Well, the Pinewood is trying. They just launched a brown-bag lunch/sit-down counter service. On the to-go menu: turkey meat loaf, chicken and andouille gumbo, and PB&J. Crust optional.

Saturday
50-Plus Kinds of Chili in Brookhaven...
IT’S GETTING CHILI

50-Plus Kinds of Chili in Brookhaven...

You’ve been neglecting chili lately. Probably because it was hot out. Or you were on a gazpacho kick. Or because you were waiting for the Brookhaven Chili Cook-Off... It’ll be you, your chili, some ice-cold brews, a tasting spoon and 50 massive vats of homemade chili. No double-dipping.

Sunday
And 20-Plus Kinds of Fried Chicken
FUNKY CHICKEN

And 20-Plus Kinds of Fried Chicken

Or maybe you’re in more of a buttermilk-brined-drumstick kind of mood. If so, here’s a different cook-off. A fried-chicken-themed one that’s being judged by Kevin Gillespie and awarding the winner a free trip to New York. For everyone else: probably a set of steak knives.

Doing Italian Things at Double Zero
BOOT CAMP

Doing Italian Things at Double Zero

The Feast of San Gennaro. It’s that festival in Little Italy. Happens once a year. Everyone eats a bunch of cannoli. Well, this year, Double Zero is taking a stab at it. There’ll be pizza-making classes, vendors everywhere (think High Road/pasta/sausage guys), music and as always: Italian wines for tastings. Generously.
