Things to do for July 18, 2013

The Weekender

Competitive Pinball, a New Brewery and a Bouncing Baby Piano Bar

Top of the weekend to ya.

Thursday
Oh, Hey. It’s a New Piano Bar.
KEY MARKET

Oh, Hey. It’s a New Piano Bar.

A new piano bar just opened in Sandy Springs. Name’s Tailfeathers. It’s got Cuban sandwiches and mussels and a big circular bar. Oh, and a grand piano. A player piano. So maybe pour out a little bourbon for unemployed pianists.

Thursdays Are for Secret Gumbo
GUMBOTRON

Thursdays Are for Secret Gumbo

Watershed just started this new thing where they serve off-menu gumbo every Thursday night. The catch: they won’t tell you what kind until you get there (could be rabbit and andouille sausage, could be seafood...). The other catch: when it’s gone, it’s gone. That’s just logic, really.

Thursdays, Watershed, 1820 Peachtree Rd NW, 404-809-3561

Friday
A Decatur Brewery Launches. Joy.
THREE AT LAST

A Decatur Brewery Launches. Joy.

Brick Store Pub. Friday. 5:03pm sharp. Be there if the idea of tasting beers you’ve never tasted sounds like a good one. Because a new Decatur brewery called Three Taverns will be there launching two Belgian-style numbers. One’s a single ale. One’s an IPA. Both are beer. So that’s good.

Saturday
You’re About to Enter a Pinball Contest
PIN-UP

You’re About to Enter a Pinball Contest

Here’s what Saturday looks like: you, waking up. Finding your way to Joystick Gamebar. Feigning surprise when you find out that a full-on pinball tournament is under way. Entering the tournament. Playing pinball. Drinking a beer. Winning the finals. Drinking another beer. Saying “yay.” Going to bed.

Old Fashioning in the Sun at Condesa
BAREFOOT CONDESA

Old Fashioning in the Sun at Condesa

Hanging out on Condesa’s patio on Saturday sounds like a nice way to pass a few hours. Particularly the ones after 3pm. Because that’s when they’re handing out gratis BLTs and launching their oak-aged Old Fashioned (it spent six weeks soaking with oak chips). Wish it a happy 1.5 months.
