Things to do for July 11, 2013
Get Your Baton Bob, Frenchness and Surfing Here
It takes brass balls to sell weekends.
You’ll Want to Go to Guffey’s Today
Guffey’s is having a summer sale right now. Simple enough. But... actually, that’s it. Like we said, simple enough. You can get button-downs and hand-printed ties and jarringly colorful blazers for a lot less money than normal. Great. Take care.
You Can Surf in Atlanta Now. Ish.
You remember SurfSET. It was that pop-up gym class where you pretend-surfed your calves into wobbly submission. You also remember being left high and... still dry when they packed up and left town. Well, now a local trainer is holding permanent classes. You already feel 15% more Bodhi-like.
Baton Bob and a Bunch of Frenchness
In case you forgot, Bastille Day is Sunday. Good thing Paris on Ponce is having another weird party this year. What it means for you: two days of Francophile-y randomness like French bulldogs, magicians, aerialists, mustachioed stilt-walkers and a Baton Bob appearance. Which... he’s not even French.
Pho. Banh Mi. Shrimp Rolls. On Wheels.
Look for a black dragon with a yellow mustache. It’ll be at the festival of trucks this weekend, painted on the side of a new one called Pho Sho. Find it and you’ll also find shrimp rolls, pho and jerk chicken banh mi. And presumably a lot of happiness.
Just You, a Patio and Meat. And Beer.
Think back to yesterday. As we recall, you craved Memphis-style barbecue. If the same thing happens this Wednesday, make your way to Southern Art for their new weekly BBQ series on the patio. They’ll have things like pulled pork shoulder, horseradish slaw and drafts of SweetWater hefeweizen. And hopefully wet-naps.
