Things to do for April 18, 2013

The Weekender

Tequila, Contortionists and a Tiny Monkey

The good, the bad and the weekend.

Thursday
It’s Hot. You Need Shorts. And Lunch.
SHORT CUT

It’s Hot. You Need Shorts. And Lunch.

Look down. If whatever’s covering your legs isn’t bohemian paisley or tartan or something gloriously springy: go to Miller Brothers. They’re having a Bills Khakis spring trunk show. Grab some oxford chestnut shorts or seersucker pants. And lunch from the on-site Freckled & Blue truck. Because, well... lunch.

Three Sheets Turns 3, Hires a Monkey
CIRQUE OF LIFE

Three Sheets Turns 3, Hires a Monkey

Tonight, Three Sheets is transforming into a fantastical circus. The kind of fantastical circus with fire-eaters, jugglers and stilt walkers. Grab a margarita. Watch a contortionist. Get a photo with a monkey named Dr. Irving. He’ll be the one who’s a monkey just walking around. But you probably figured that.

Friday
300 Bowls of Ramen at Joli Kobe
YANKEE NOODLE

300 Bowls of Ramen at Joli Kobe

Two ramen masters (a chef from New York and a Guy Wong protégé from here) are orchestrating a little pop-up at Joli Kobe Kitchen, where they’ll serve 300 bowls of the stuff. You can choose from shoyu chicken or miso tonkotsu. Or buy two tickets and don’t choose. Problem solved.

Saturday
Beer. Music. Crawfish. The Optimist.
OPTIMIST ILLUSION

Beer. Music. Crawfish. The Optimist.

This Saturday, the Optimist is having a little thing on their patio. The main attraction: a crawfish boil. The other attractions: putt-putt, two live bands and new spring cocktails. Also, a specially made cask from Red Hare Brewing called The Hoptimist. It’s like they connected “hops” with “optimist” or something.

Apr 20, 3pm, $17, The Optimist, 914 Howell Mill Rd, 404-477-6260

A New Monthly Pig Party at Bone Lick
AMERICA’S ROAST WANTED

A New Monthly Pig Party at Bone Lick

Also, make some time to swing by Bone Lick on Saturday. They’re roasting a ridiculous amount of pork. So eat that. Then partake in extracurriculars like beer can bowling and competitive beer can shooting. That’s where you shoot beer cans with a pellet gun. Of course that’s what that is.
