Things to do for August 29, 2013

The Weekender

Dinner in the Woods. Luau. Spam Sushi.

The weekend is a labor of weekend.

Thursday
New Car Service. Open Bar. Makes Sense.
LYFT TICKET

New Car Service. Open Bar. Makes Sense.

When it comes to being chauffeured around the city, you A) love that, and B) like to have options. Related: a new car service app called Lyft launched its Atlanta fleet today. And to celebrate, they’ll be at Shout tonight with an open bar. You... see what they did there.

Weekly Dinner Parties from an H&F Vet
THE WEEKEST LINK

Weekly Dinner Parties from an H&F Vet

You remember that former H&F chef who started doing monthly pop-up dinners in the woods. Well, he’s doing small dinners during the week now, too. Show up and you’ll receive about five cocktail-paired courses, all based on your specific tastes. So don’t invite someone with horrible taste.

Saturday
Lure’s Pre–Labor Day Luau. You Accept.
BOW CHICKA LUAU

Lure’s Pre–Labor Day Luau. You Accept.

To warm up for Monday, you should probably spend some time eating and drinking on a patio this weekend. Specifically: on Lure’s patio. More specifically: during their luau. It’ll be decked out with tiki torches, Singapore slings and Spam sushi. It’s the canned chicken of the sea.

Peach Beer. Dancing. Decatur Square.
SQUARE TACTICS

Peach Beer. Dancing. Decatur Square.

You’ll want to swing by Decatur Square around dusk with a date on Saturday, grab a peach beer and wait. Suddenly you’ll start noticing things. A light installation in the sky. Dancers from Serenbe Playhouse on the ground. The fact that you’re actually drinking peach beer.

Sunday
’80s Sci-Fi and Classic Cars at Starlight
DRIVE FOR GREATNESS

’80s Sci-Fi and Classic Cars at Starlight

99.9% of the time, it doesn’t make sense to go to the Starlight drive-in during the day. But .1% of the time, they open at 10am with rock and country bands, a pre-’72 classic car show and, eventually, three ’80s sci-fi movies. Eventually being some time way after 10am.
