Things to do for August 22, 2013

The Weekender

Laser Tag, Beer Summer Camp, and Chicken and Waffles

Rain, rain, go aweekend.

Thursday
Now This... This Is a Chef’s Counter
KING’S TABLE

Now This... This Is a Chef’s Counter

King + Duke. Not a bad date spot, really. And that’s especially true now that they’ve built a chef’s counter directly in front of the 24-foot open hearth. They’ll only have two seatings nightly (for two parties of two), so maybe book it now. And maybe ignore the word “maybe.”

Nightly, 6 and 8:45pm, King + Duke, 3060 Peachtree Rd NW, 404-477-3500

You Need Chicken and Waffles. Hence...
GOOD KNIGHT

You Need Chicken and Waffles. Hence...

Gladys Knight is the greatest. Related: she just quietly opened a new outpost in southwest Atlanta. And you need to investigate. If not for the Midnight Train (four fried jumbo chicken wings and a waffle), then for the... no, that’s why.

Friday
A Wakesurf Competition with Laser Tag
WAKE AND LAKE

A Wakesurf Competition with Laser Tag

Imagine a wakesurfing competition. Now imagine it’s happening at Callaway Gardens. You’re there. Drinking a beer and watching the surfers. Playing laser tag and a game of giant chess. Trying to figure out why you’re playing laser tag and a game of giant chess at a wakesurfing competition.

Saturday
Summer Camp at a Brewery. Basically.
S’MOREHOUSE

Summer Camp at a Brewery. Basically.

Here’s what you’re doing this Saturday. You’re going to go to SweetWater’s first-ever camp-themed party. It’ll be exactly like you remember summer camp. Inflatable obstacle courses. Free-flowing beer. Build-your-own-s’mores stations. Yeah... that camp didn’t exist. Does now, though. So you should probably go enjoy the sh*t out of it.

Sunday
Pork and Beer. Nice Little Sunday.
BACKYARD IN MOTION

Pork and Beer. Nice Little Sunday.

Backyard barbecue this Sunday. Should be a fun one. The sous-chef from Leon’s will be there roasting pork. Some guy will be there playing a guitar. You’ll be there drinking blonde ales from Three Taverns. And No 246 will be there... providing the backyard.

Aug 25, 4pm, $15, Backyard BBQ at No 246, 129 E Ponce De Leon Ave, Decatur, 678-399-8246
