The Weekender

A New Patio, Gratis Oysters and Bartering for Art

Don’t worry, be weekendy.

Thursday
Gratis Oysters on a Patio. Rejoice.
KETCH AND RELEASE

Gratis Oysters on a Patio. Rejoice.

There’s a patio party this evening that could really set a nice tone for your weekend. It’s at the Big Ketch. You’ll drink a few Mexican beers, eat some gratis garlic-parm oysters and listen to live reggae music. Sets a nice Thursday tone, too.

Guy Wong Made You a Patio for Drinking
HONEY BAMBOO BOO

Guy Wong Made You a Patio for Drinking

Miso Izakaya. Great ramen spot. And now: great patio cocktail spot. Mainly because Guy Wong just built a tiny new bamboo patio there that’s specifically engineered for your quaffing pleasure. Oh, and it’s not quite furnished yet. But it will be soon. You’ve been meaning to drink-stand more anyway.

Now open at Miso Izakaya, 619 Edgewood Ave SE, 678-701-0128

Friday
Billy Reid, Candy and Sangria. Just...
CLOTHES ENCOUNTERS

Billy Reid, Candy and Sangria. Just...

Everyone prepares for the onslaught of summer differently. Some put on flip-flops. Others fill their stores with new Billy Reid Pensacola polos and double-layered Vince tees. And white peach sangria. And a bunch of candy, for some reason. 310 Rosemont is going the latter route. Funny. So are you.

Saturday
Bartering for Art. It’s a Thing Now.
BARTER UP

Bartering for Art. It’s a Thing Now.

You have things, yet you need art. Artists have art, yet they need things. That’s the idea behind this little art soiree happening at dooGallery this weekend. You get to bring one item and attempt to trade it for art. If all else fails, money should work.

Foreign Bartenders Invade ESS
BEHIND BARS

Foreign Bartenders Invade ESS

Miami. Charleston. New Orleans. All cities. Cities for sure. But apparently, they’re also all cities with bartenders who make mean Sazeracs and sidecars. So this Saturday, Empire State South is hosting a bunch of them (including Paul Calvert of... Decatur). They’ll make classic cocktails. You’ll drink them. It’s only polite.
