Things to do for October 03, 2013

The Weekender

A New Growler Spot, Breakfast for Dinner and 25,000 Square Feet of Scary

The weekend is for lovers.

Thursday
Meatball Pizza and 50 Growler Taps
RISE OF AN EMPIRE

Meatball Pizza and 50 Growler Taps

Dunwoody. That’s a place you’re sometimes in. And when you are, you usually want BBQ-chicken pizza. And dozens of growlers filled with porters and high-gravity beers like Dogfish Head Burton Baton. Basically, you want this new spot called Empire State Pizza & Growlers. Makes good sense, that name.

NIGHT MOVES

About Your Breakfast Plans Tonight...

Your breakfast this morning was stupid. At least it was compared to what it’ll be tonight at Buttermilk Kitchen. See, four chefs (Ron Eyester, Zeb Stevenson...) are making you breakfast for dinner. Expect things like a dill-and-potato waffle, beef kielbasa and whiskey cocktails. It’s the most important brown liquor of the day.

Friday
New Haunted House. Big One. Terrific.
MAY CONTAIN NUTS

New Haunted House. Big One. Terrific.

Once upon a time, a train carrying demonic artifacts crashed into Atlantic Station. Not really, but “really.” And the result: a new quarter-mile-long haunted house underneath the place. One that might make for a really interesting date. Or a really interesting quarter-mile-long jog.

Saturday
An All-Day Music Fest in Brookhaven
THAT’S SO HAVEN

An All-Day Music Fest in Brookhaven

Brookhaven Park. Saturday morning would be a fine time to be there. Because what you’ll find over the course of nine hours is a bunch of blues and funk bands, food trucks like Mighty Meatballs and a beer tent with, well... beers. You’ll probably find that part the most.

Oct 5, 11am-8pm, $40 ($50 at gate), Roots n Brews at Brookhaven Park, 4158 Peachtree Rd NE, 888-270-0686, ext 109, tickets here

Tuesday
A Whiskey Contest in an Old Courthouse
SEE YOU IN COURT

A Whiskey Contest in an Old Courthouse

You’re going to an old courthouse in Decatur on Tuesday. Only it’s not what you think. You’ll be tasting whiskey and eating pork rillettes from No. 246 and watching local barmen like Paul Calvert compete in a cocktail competition. So... better than jury duty.
