Things to do for February 07, 2013

The Weekender

Eating Aphrodisiacs. Drinking Hurricanes. Weekending.

The weekend can say that again.

Thursday
This Is a Sale. It’s at Lyonstate.
LYONSTATE OF THE UNION

This Is a Sale. It’s at Lyonstate.

Well, it’s almost here. Mandatory Date Day. Also known as Pretty-Great-Excuse-to-Check-Out-This-Huge-Sale-at-Lyonstate Day. It’s that seersucker-y online store from Alabama. It’s got things like coal-black leather oxfords, Italian knitted ties and double-breasted blazers. Note: those also work after February 14.

Friday
Jazz. DJs. Art. Go.
PARTY ARTY

Jazz. DJs. Art. Go.

Apparently, this weekend starts the beginning of Atlanta’s art season. Apparently. Because here comes a two-night art auction/party to kick it off. It’s at the Mason Murer gallery with open bars, jazz, DJs and plenty of art (think latex paint on tar paper and collages of trees). Right. Start at the bar.

Saturday
The AUM Goes Full Aphrodisiac
APHRO CENTRIC

The AUM Goes Full Aphrodisiac

The Atlanta Underground Market is doing their thing again. Only this thing is entirely focused on aphrodisiac foods. Like artichokes. And figs. (Who knew.) Which works out, because you may or may not want to prepare an amazing dinner next Thursday. That may or may not turn into an amazing after-dinner.

Wynton Marsalis. He’s Trumpeting Here.
BRASS ATTACKS

Wynton Marsalis. He’s Trumpeting Here.

You know Wynton Marsalis. He’s that classic jazz trumpeter/composer/all-around hell-of-a-live-musician guy. Turns out, he’s doing a one-night-only show at the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra as part of his 25th-anniversary tour. And you’ll be going to that. Just letting you know.

Tuesday
A Five-Hour Fat Tuesday Party at Serpas
THE FAT AND THE FURIOUS

A Five-Hour Fat Tuesday Party at Serpas

Serpas is having a little Mardi Gras party on Fat Tuesday. The chef’s from New Orleans, so they’ll be decking the place out with masks and beads. And a live jazz band. And hurricanes. And gumbo. And crawfish pie. And king cake. And... hopefully they can keep the lights on.
