The Weekender

The Russians, the Super Bowl and Ice Cream Pancakes

The weekend is calling tails.

Thursday
Friday
A Party Where Everything Is Russian
COMMIE MAYBE

A Party Where Everything Is Russian

Three Sheets is having a Russian-themed party tomorrow night. Which as far as themes go, pretty easy one to nail. You’ve got your vodka (check) and... well, that’s really all you need. But they’ll also have a Russian DJ and a loosely enforced Soviet dress code. Throw on the most Gorbachev-y thing you own.

Saturday
Ice Cream for Brunch
THE SCOOP

Ice Cream for Brunch

If you’re in the market for dessert for brunch on Saturday... High Road. That’s the ticket. They’ll be serving up things like pancakes with bourbon ice cream and “The Burger” (brioche, Nutella, roasted bananas). Maybe don’t add cheese.

It’s National Pisco Sour Day. Really.
HOLIDAY IN

It’s National Pisco Sour Day. Really.

A long time ago, someone poured something sour and something pisco into a glass. It was the first pisco sour. It was good. So good that like a million years later, it was honored with a holiday. Saturday: observe it at Prohibition. They’re making a few complimentary rounds to celebrate. And you’re drinking them.

Sunday
Watching the Super Bowl over Hurricanes
RAISING CANES

Watching the Super Bowl over Hurricanes

This Sunday, you’ll want to head to the lobby between Southern Art and Bourbon Bar. They’re having a New Orleans–style Super Bowl party there. You’ll find a special menu with gumbo, po’boys, Sazeracs and hurricanes. You’ll also find a giant flat-screen. You know, for watching commercials.

Wednesday
Red Velvet Chicken and Waffles at 2am
MIDNIGHT RUN

Red Velvet Chicken and Waffles at 2am

It’s late. You’ve been Sound Table–ing. You need nourishment. Head down the street to BQE. It’s a new lounge that feels like a jazz player’s apartment (black velvet banquettes, copper lamps, a backlit photo of New York) and they’re serving red velvet chicken and waffles till nearly 3am. So nice of them.

Opens Feb 6, BQE Restaurant and Lounge, 262 Edgewood Ave, 404-996-6159, see the menu
