Things to do for May 15, 2014
One Mile. Four Beers. You Can Do It.
Fall in love with the weekend all over again.
You Look Like You Need a Baked Good
By now, surely you’ve happened upon Ratio Bakeshop’s ham croissants and custom Rev Coffee at markets around town. But surely you’d rather happen upon them in their homey brick-and-mortar shop in Decatur. Good thing it’s actually there now.
Jay Z Put This in the Airport for You
If you plan on flying anywhere for Memorial Day, you should know that Jay Z just opened a 40/40 Club in the airport. It’s a lot like the NYC locations (big screens, chicken wings everywhere...), but with more suitcases.
Meet Ron Jeremy. Oh, and His Rum.
Tomorrow afternoon, feel free to take off work a little early. You have a good excuse: drinking rum with Ron Jeremy in an organic foods market. Which: creepy. Anyway, he’ll be there smiling for photos and autographing bottles of his rum, Ron de Jeremy. Thing pretty much named itself, didn’t it...
Trial by Pork Butt Combat
The one official rule at this pork competition between places like Kimball House, Leon’s and Pine Street Market: the dish must contain smoked pork butt. The unofficial rules: you must drink beer, listen to live bluegrass and taste all 11 entries. Unofficial rules weren’t made to be broken.
A Race Where You Drink Beer, Not Water
You should change up your workout routine this weekend. Could do something like running a mile around Monday Night Brewing. And stopping every quarter mile to drink a full glass of beer. And cooling down by dancing to an ’80s/’90s band. We’re not sure what just happened there.
