The Weekender

Beer Ice Cream, New Watches and Leather Jackets

The weekend is calling shotgun.

Thursday
A Handsome Watch Shop in Buckhead
WRISTY BUSINESS

A Handsome Watch Shop in Buckhead

Well, it’s just about Christmas-list-hint-dropping time. A good place to start: Hublot. Swiss watchmaking brand. Specializes in hefty titanium pieces with hornback crocodile straps. Well, they just opened their first shop in Georgia. The watches start at $10,000, so maybe start being really nice to your friends. Or maybe try Santa.

Now open, Hublot Boutique, 3500 Peachtree Rd NE (in Phipps Plaza), 404-841-8504

Preposterously Nice Jackets, 30% Off
INTO LEATHER

Preposterously Nice Jackets, 30% Off

Brando. Springsteen. You. All have one thing in common: a transformative influence on American pop culture. Wait, no, that’s not it. You all look great in leather. Which reminds us: Bloomingdale’s is taking 30% off leather jackets from Schott, who just happened to outfit Marlon and Bruce. Motorcycle not included.

Ongoing, Bloomingdale’s, 3393 Peachtree Rd NE (at Lenox Square), 404-495-2800

Friday
Music. Revelry. The French.
LIBERTÉ, ÉGALITÉ, FRATERNITÉ

Music. Revelry. The French.

The French-American Chamber of Commerce. Apparently, it exists. And apparently, they like to party. Head to Opera tomorrow night (they’ve rented it out for a few hours), and you’ll find an open bar. And for entertainment: Blair Crimmins and the Hookers. To be clear, that’s a band.

Saturday
Beer Ice Cream at a Growler Store
STRANGE BREWS

Beer Ice Cream at a Growler Store

If you’re planning to drink beer this weekend, maybe stop by Beer Growler Nation. They’re having a 10-hour party with live indie music and gratis tastings from Pine Street Market, the Cheese Course and the beer ice cream makers at Frozen Pints. In case you’re planning to eat beer this weekend, too.

Wednesday
The St. Regis Ice Skating Rink Returns
SKATELAND

The St. Regis Ice Skating Rink Returns

The ice skating rink at the St. Regis. You know it. You love it. You perfected your triple-axel on it. Anyway, it’s back again. And this year, they’re having sporadic adults-only skate parties. There’ll be s’mores. There’ll be champagne. There’ll be... rooms available in case skating really wears you out.
