Things to do for March 21, 2013

The Weekender

Drive-In Moonshine, Fly-Fishing and Nicaraguan Cigars

The only thing we have to fear is the weekend itself.

Thursday
Moonshining Like It’s 1958
NIGHTS OF THUNDER

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
CLOSE BUT YES CIGAR

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
K-POPS

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.

Now open, King of Pops Pickup Window, Bernina Ave and Elizabeth St, 404-507-6774

Friday
A Martini-Fueled Gallery-Warming Party
GO WEST

A Martini-Fueled Gallery-Warming Party

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.

Saturday
You. A River. Fly-Fishing. Get Ready.
LORD OF THE FLY

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.
