The Weekender

Eating Rabbit Brains, Watching the Bulldogs and Chocolate Bacon-Fat Cake

Weekends as far as the eye can see.

Thursday
Whole Hog. That’s Dinner. Tonight.
PIG PEN

Whole Hog. That’s Dinner. Tonight.

Airplanes go in the sky. Fish go in the sea. And pig roasts go at barbecue joints. Except... when they go at seafood bars. See, Coast has smoked a 116-pound hog over hickory wood for tonight. Stop by for a half-pound. That goes in your face. Probably not all at once though.

Linton Hopkins and Greg Best: Now DJs
RADIO HEAD

Linton Hopkins and Greg Best: Now DJs

In kind of weird news: Linton Hopkins and Greg Best from Holeman & Finch are starting an AM radio program together. Dial in tonight and you’ll hear them playing music and discussing foodstuffs. Like Red Hot Chili Peppers and... red hot chili peppers. Or not. But maybe.

Saturday
A Gigantic Tailgate in Decatur
SEC ED

A Gigantic Tailgate in Decatur

Florida vs. Georgia. Huge game. Huge excuse to attend a massive tailgate. Well, Big Tex is throwing Decatur’s largest. They’ll have a spicy-wing-eating contest (provided by Fox Bros.), four bands (provided by Smith’s Olde Bar) and a new beer cocktail menu. Oh, and the game. They’ll have the game on.

This Much Garlic Should Be Illegal
ALL YOU NEED IS CLOVE

This Much Garlic Should Be Illegal

This Saturday, 20 Atlanta Underground Market vendors will meet in an undisclosed location, huddle up and... start peeling garlic. And you should be there to witness this. Because they’re going to take that garlic and make food with it. Like Cuban sliders, rice balls and chocolate bacon-fat cake. Sure, you’ll take a sliver.

Eating Roasted Rabbit Brain at STK
VAMP IT UP

Eating Roasted Rabbit Brain at STK

Halloween is Wednesday. Which gives you an extra weekend to celebrate. A great place to do that: STK. They’ll have special dishes like Roasted Rabbit-Brain Confit and pumpkin mojitos to drink. Also, they’d like you to come dressed as a vampire. Or the kind of person who wears capes to steakhouses.
