Things to do for March 13, 2014
Dancing Meets Guinness Pie Meets the Weekend
Make new friends, but keep the old. One is weekend, the other is gold.
A New Pizza Spot with Beer to Go
If you’re in Castleberry Hill this weekend, you’ll notice a new pie joint exists there now. It’s also got hot dogs, chicken wings and... an entire convenience store inside. In case you need some local beer or paper towels. Just like QuikTrip, only very unlike QuikTrip.
You’d Only Do This on St. Patrick’s Day
On the afternoon of March 17, someone is going to show up at your door with a nicely packaged box full of lamb, puff pastry and other ingredients you’ll need to make a Guinness pie. Just add beer and throw it in the oven. And that’s how baking works.
A New Place to Spend Sunday Mornings
There’s a new farmers’ market opening Sunday morning in Avondale Estates. Which isn’t weird considering it’s almost spring. We hope you’ve enjoyed hearing about this new development as much as we’ve enjoyed letting you know about it.
Time for a ’90s Rap Dance Party
New jack swing. It’s a music genre you don’t hear a lot about, “which is really kind of unfortunate,” according to a fake quote by the owners of Joystick. That’s why they’re hosting a charity dance party on Sunday, where that’s all the DJ will play. Maybe don’t request Imagine Dragons.
Villains for the St. Pat’s Win
Villains is celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. And by that, we mean serving things like corned pork belly with cabbage and shepherd’s pie. And other things like colcannon, bangers and greens, and fried lamb tongue. You were hoping they’d celebrate it that way.
