This week, you’re getting 25% off swimsuits, ties and other warm-weather gear from Lake Como’s Mitchumm Industries. (Clooney’d be proud.) Plus: framed letterpress prints of whiskey, pork and other refined essentials from the Southern gents at Bearings, and majestic, hand-painted animal heads from White Faux Taxidermy. Your walls deserve Perks, too.
Things to do for March 21, 2013
Drive-In Moonshine, Fly-Fishing and Nicaraguan Cigars
The only thing we have to fear is the weekend itself.
Moonshining Like It’s 1958
The Atlanta Film Festival is under way. Which means... you’re going to the drive-in. See, Starlight is screening Thunder Road (you know, that old movie with Robert Mitchum and all the classic cars and moonshine). They’re also throwing a little party. You know, the kind with more classic cars and more moonshine.
Thursdays Just Got a Lot Cigar-ier
Starting tonight, Bourbon Bar is kicking off a live-blues-and-cigar happy hour on their patio. Also starting tonight, you’ll round up some friends, channel Muddy Waters and get there at 6. Stand around. Smoke Nicaraguan cigars. Drink bourbon. Talk brackets. It’ll be great. It’ll really be great.
At Last: A King of Pops Drive-Through
If you want a King of Pops popsicle, you have to find them first. In parks. Restaurants. Bars. Well, that all changes now. Because they just installed a drive-through window at their warehouse on the Beltline. You’ll pull up. You’ll procure a Thai tea pop. You’ll... not get fries with that.
Kai Lin Gallery has been around the block. First, Midtown. Then, Buckhead. And now, it’s finally settling down on the Westside. They’re celebrating the move with gratis martinis, lagers from Red Hare and the opening of two exhibits. You should go welcome them to the neighborhood. Them and their martinis and lagers.
You. A River. Fly-Fishing. Get Ready.
Callaway Gardens teaches a fly-fishing class. Maybe you knew that. Maybe not. But either way, you should understand that fly-fishing is important. For survival reasons. For sport reasons. For skipping-town-and-having-catered-riverside-lunches reasons. You should just understand that.
