Things to do for May 08, 2014

The Weekender

A New Kabob Spot. Bacon-Fat Donuts. Suits. Greatness.

Don’t speak. The weekend knows just what you’re saying.

CITY CITY BANG BANG

The City Thought You Could Use This

And now, a brief reimagining of the possible discussion that resulted in this new city-run art gallery:
Councilman #1: “Let’s put a bunch of digital and traditional art in the old AJC building downtown.”
Councilman #2: “Totally. The Jacob Deaton Trio could play at the opening.”
Councilman #1: “Sounds great. Thanks.”

It’s Called Kabob Land. It Has Kabobs.
LAND OF PLENTY

It’s Called Kabob Land. It Has Kabobs.

A few enterprising individuals just made a really smart business decision in Buckhead. They took over a former pizza spot, filled it with lamb, baba ghanoush and kabobs and called it Kabob Land. Hey, it worked for Disney.

Now open, Kabob Land, 3137 Piedmont Rd NE, 404-816-2777

Saturday
Just a Bunch of Really Good Food
MARKET WATCH

Just a Bunch of Really Good Food

Come Saturday, maybe you’ll be feeling hungry and indecisive. In which case, maybe go to Batdorf & Bronson. You’ll find a new market there with maple-glazed bacon-fat donuts from Porkman’s Table. And bagels from the General Muir. And duck-confit tacos from the Spence. And we can probably stop now.

Surf Music, Food Trucks and Your Mom
LEI’D BACK

Surf Music, Food Trucks and Your Mom

Plan to have lunch at the Food Truck Park this Saturday. For one, they’re going to have seven bands playing beach music. For two, they’re going to give your mom free tropical drinks and leis for Mother’s Day. Might want to invite your mom for that part.

’CHINO TOWN

About That New Suit You Asked For

Maybe you’ve ordered a suit from Indochino online before. Which is great. It’s just not as great as going to a Midtown office and getting measured and suited up by one of their roving tailors. They’ll be in town soon, so you can go do that. We won’t tell the Internet.
