Your Perks: 1) 20% off a USB-powered device that turns any flat surface into a touchpad mouse. (Yes, including your desk.) 2) Aerodynamic umbrellas that can withstand gale-force winds. 3) A wearable camera that uses sensors to take the perfect shot. It’s the third eye you didn’t know you wanted.
Things to do for January 09, 2014
Blondie in a Book and Fire Pits on a Patio
If the weekend fits, wear it.
King + Duke Has Fire Pits Now. Timely.
King + Duke: way ahead of the polar vortex. For one, they recently obtained three fire pits from a local ironworker. For two, they made a hot-cocktail menu. Go for the Hot Swedish Punch with rum, sugar and Batavia-Arrack. We’re sure whatever Batavia-Arrack is tastes great.
No Cameras at the Clermont. Unless...
They don’t allow cameras in the Clermont. You know this. Mumford and his sons know this. But at least you can leaf through this new coffee-table book that’s filled with things like Blondie photos and Anthony Bourdain commentary now. Paper medicine cups full of whiskey sold separately.
Guffey’s Gives Away the House. Almost.
We know you know it’s cold. What we don’t know is if you know that Guffey’s is parting with things like cashmere sweaters, waterproof trench coats and windowpane suits for up to 70% off. Things that would be pretty perfect for the outdoors right now. Or wherever doors.
You’ve Never Done No. 246 Like This
Hey, No. 246 is doing brunch now. And we don’t want to spoil it for you, but they’ve got a breakfast burger with sausage, egg, pimento cheese and pancetta jam. And a hot brunch cocktail with espresso and chocolate grappa. That’s one way to wake up.
Two Venues. 14 Bands. Much Dancing.
Fact: There are many bands in Atlanta.
Problem: It’s tough to keep up with them all.
Solution: This weekend, a new local band will play every 30 minutes at the Earl and 529. Bands like Sealions (think Empire of the Sun) and Spirits and the Melchizedek Children (think “interesting name choice”).
