FOURTH MEAL

The Only Reason Not to Grill on the 4th

Preparing a Fourth of July feast: not as hard as you’d think. Especially when Kevin Gillespie is the one preparing it. Call Gunshow now, and in one week, pick up enough meat (pulled pork, Brunswick stew...) and sides (coleslaw, pickles...) to feed four. Hey, it’s a start.

Reserve by Jun 29, pickup Jul 4, noon-3pm, Gunshow, 924 Garrett St, 404-380-1886

STATE OF OHIO

When You See This BBQ Truck, Go to It

In Fairburn, there’s a barbecue restaurant called the Ohio Hog Company. Great. But thankfully, they realized you needed easier access to their smoked meatstuffs. Cut to the part where you hunt down their new truck for things like brisket nachos and rib tips. Then cut to you eating them. End scene.

TIE HARD

Your Neck Will Be Pleased with This

When it comes to ties, it’s best to have options. Same goes for a lot of things. But for now, let’s just focus on Miller Brothers. They’ve got hundreds of them. Silk ones. Linen ones. Patriotically striped ones. And they’re all two-for-one right now. You’re gonna need a bigger tie closest.

Sunday
Celebrating Your Freedom 4 Days Early
BOOKHOUSE OF REVELATION

Celebrating Your Freedom 4 Days Early

Looks like someone’s jumping the gun on the Fourth of July festivities this year. Oh, right. That someone’s you. Because you’re going to Bookhouse’s party on Sunday. Because there’s going to be a beer truck and acrobats and live bands and eating competitions. But mainly because you love America.

Monday
Seeing Every Bond Girl/Film Ever Made
HUNGER JAMES

Seeing Every Bond Girl/Film Ever Made

Fifty years ago, Bond (James Bond) was born on film. And in honor of this semicentennial mile marker, the Plaza is playing 25 consecutive days of 007 flicks. It’ll start with Dr. No and end with Skyfall. And probably you shaking martinis in a flask.
