PERK ALERT

30% Off Your Thanksgiving Turkey

This year, you’re getting the most prized breed of turkeys—a USDA Grade A, all-natural beauty from Robinson’s—delivered, for 30% off. And since you’ll need something to carve it with, we’re getting you up to 64% off the sharpest knives on earth. And, not Thanksgiving-y, but still: some handsome, exclusive vintage furniture.

Four Hours of Cocktails at Billy Reid
BILL OF RIGHTS

Four Hours of Cocktails at Billy Reid

Billy Reid. Sometimes, you go there to buy an Italian wool sport jacket. Other times, to eat free food from Restaurant Eugene and throw back gratis vodka cocktails. Tonight: one of those other times. The reason: an open house for women’s clothing. But the drinks, those are unisex.

Nov 1, 4-8pm, no cost, Billy Reid, 1170 Howell Mill Rd, 404-994-3144

Saturday
The Return of Pumpkin Destruction Day
GOOD GOURD

The Return of Pumpkin Destruction Day

So, Halloween is over. Let’s kill some pumpkins. The spot: Rock Ranch. Will there be some kiddie stuff: sure. Will there also be a monster truck, 40-foot crane and cannon there for the sole purpose of smashing pumpkins: sure.

Mexican Booze Punch at Bone Garden
LOVELY BONES

Mexican Booze Punch at Bone Garden

This Saturday, grab someone (anyone will do) and head to Bone Garden. They’re having a Day of the Dead party. Which, in case you didn’t know, seems to involve traditional Mexican dancers, pulled-pork tinga and punch. The spiked kind. It’s a lovely holiday, that Day of the Dead.

Celebrating the End... in a Museum
APOCALYPSE NOW

Celebrating the End... in a Museum

Fifty days. According to the Mayans, that’s when the world ends. So... better make these last few weeks count. Hey, look, here’s an apocalypse-themed party inside a private museum with an open bar, a DJ, dancers and art by ancient shamans. If you gotta go, go with a gratis gimlet.

Fox Bros. Is Cooking Thanksgiving
WILD TURKEY

Fox Bros. Is Cooking Thanksgiving

Candy. So much candy. You’ve... had enough with the candy. Which is good, because it’s time to talk turkey. Enter Fox Bros. They’ll be doing special cater orders for Thanksgiving this year. Think 14-pound smoked birds. With gravy. And a bunch of sides like cornbread dressing, mac and cheese, and chocolate pie. Get extra.

Preorder through Nov 18, Fox Bros. BBQ, 1238 Dekalb Ave, order at 404-414-0826 or here
