The Weekender

Get Your Baton Bob, Frenchness and Surfing Here

It takes brass balls to sell weekends.

SALE POLISH

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.

Saturday
You Can Surf in Atlanta Now. Ish.
SET IN YOUR WAVES

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.

Jul 13, $25 (first class gratis), 9 and 10am, SurfSET at Chastain Park Gym, 140 W Wieuca Rd NE, 678-951-5823, register here

Baton Bob and a Bunch of Frenchness
’STILLE WORKER

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.
BEST IN PHO

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.

Wednesday
Just You, a Patio and Meat. And Beer.
WEEKLY MEATINGS

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.

Wednesdays through Oct 30, 5-8pm, Southern Art, 3315 Peachtree Rd, 404-946-9070
