Things to do for September 27, 2012

The Weekender

Skrillex, Squid Ink and a Hunk of Jarlsberg. That’s a Weekend.

No sleep till weekend.

Thursday
CounterPoint Is Upon Us
COUNTEROFFER

CounterPoint Is Upon Us

So, there’s some tiny concert happening here this weekend. You should probably go. Check out like 90 electronic artists (Bassnectar, Skrillex). And if that gets old: ride a Ferris wheel, watch Greg Mike make art, mime in a silent disco or camp... it’s sort of like Woodstock, but with less peace/love and more glow sticks.

Friday
And Then the Southern Version of That
HOT AIR

And Then the Southern Version of That

Or there’s this other festival. It’s on the Chattahoochee, and it’s more of a hot-air balloon ride/bonfire/soul-rock kind of scene. You’ll want to get there early, grab a local beer. Some barbecue. And head straight for the corn maze. Better ration that beer in case you get lost.

Saturday
An Airport Hangar with Painted Models
PLEASURE AND PLANE

An Airport Hangar with Painted Models

It’s fall. Which means it’s time for models to strip down, get slathered in paint and walk a runway. Yes, Bodies as a Work of Art is back. Expect the same kind of hedonism as always: vodka. Aerialists. Models being silently judged. Just expect it in a giant airport hangar.

Monday
La Pietra Cucina Makes Some Moves
LOOSE CHANGE

La Pietra Cucina Makes Some Moves

LPC. It’s this new spot for Italian. Well, okay, not exactly new. See, it used to be called La Pietra Cucina. Only now, it has a different interior, chef (a Hell’s Kitchen runner-up) and menu (think squid-ink spaghetti). But the fried olives, that’s the same.

Tuesday
Five Days of Cheese at Star Provisions
SWEET CREAMS

Five Days of Cheese at Star Provisions

Oh, cheese. It never gets old. And when it does, well, then it’s just blue cheese. Anyway, you’ll be pleased to know that it’s time for Star Provisions’ Cheese Week. Go by for gratis tastings on your lunch break. There’ll be samples from Vermont, California and local farms. Eat your heart out, Wisconsin.
