Two New Burgers Spots, Mountains of Fried Chicken and a Patio Party

Pretty weekend, walking down the street...

PB&Js and Kool-Aid on the Westside
BAGGAGE CLAIM

PB&Js and Kool-Aid on the Westside

If a school cafeteria opened a restaurant, it’d be this place. It’s takeout only. It’s in the old Curly’s Fried Chicken spot. And they do burgers and sandwiches (like PB&Js and sloppy joes) with toppings (like fried pickles and bacon) in brown paper bags. Swing by for lunch and a Kool-Aid sometime. No tradesies.

Why You’re Going to Billy Reid Tonight
REID ALL ABOUT IT

Why You’re Going to Billy Reid Tonight

Make an appointment at Billy Reid sometime between right this second and Saturday evening. They’re having a three-day made-to-measure event. You’ll pick out a fabric and a style, and in return you’ll get a cashmere vest and some tweed pants. Assuming that’s what you picked, of course.

Saturday
Rosebud’s Fried Chicken Fest Is Back
FRIED AND TRUE

Rosebud’s Fried Chicken Fest Is Back

Last year, a fried-chicken festival was born. And not surprisingly, you kind of loved it. So now it’s back. Thirteen local chefs are going to battle it out at Rosebud, and you’re going to help judge. It’ll involve eating chicken and beer. Passing judgment is the greatest.

Tuesday
Decatur’s New Semisecret Burgers
FI-CURIOUS

Decatur’s New Semisecret Burgers

Meet BurgerFi. It’s a new beer-and-burger joint opening Tuesday. Ask for the 1/2 + 1/2 Burger (it’s got two patties: one’s Angus, one’s quinoa). Oh, and ask for it by name, because it’s on a secret menu. So secret that it’s plastered all over their website. Their website has a big mouth.

Patio Season’s Back. Embrace It Thusly.
SWIFT JUSTICE

Patio Season’s Back. Embrace It Thusly.

The bad news is that the pollen is back. The good news is that so is patio season. You should celebrate that fact at 4th & Swift. They’re having a party on their newly improved terrace with whole roasted pig and cocktails and everything. Parties are good like that.
