Father’s Day. Coming soon to... a father near you. Thankfully, we’ve put together some Perks for just the occasion. Plus, here’s some eye-catching liquor-related charts (all the whiskey, one chart) and a sleek charger that extends your phone’s battery life by a week. Or a really Instagram-heavy weekend.
Things to do for May 29, 2014
Frog Legs, Bebop and Thanksgiving Dinner
The weekend’s got a point there.
Goodbye, Tantra. Hello, Sexy Frenchness.
Serial Francophile with a thing for third dates. Is expected to hit Vin Vie Bistro, a new French restaurant in South Buckhead, tomorrow night. Will likely be seeking safe haven among pan-seared frog legs, escargot and gently decanted wine by candlelight. Anonymous tips appreciated.
Aw, the Optimist Is Growing Up So Fast
The Optimist is about to enter the terrible twos phase of its life. Only instead of being terrible, it’s being fantastic. Mostly by throwing a party with a hole-in-one putting contest, their Fish House Punch served in a pouch and a freshly renovated Oyster Bar. Yeah, mostly those things.
An Auction with Weird Singing People
If you have a date Saturday night but also want to bid on over 200 art pieces, there’s this little auction at the Goat Farm. It’ll have food from places like Seven Lamps, a cash bar and guys singing work songs from the sailor days called chanteys. Which... huh.
Eat Corn Dogs. Listen to Bebop.
This Sunday, Pallookaville is launching a new weekly concert series. Think bebop, exotica, roots, organ jazz... basically any type of band that makes sense to listen to while eating a corn dog called a Fryinstein Monster. Of which there are surprisingly few.
Thanksgiving Dinner for No Real Reason
Since everyone was thinking it and no one was doing anything about it, Bantam & Biddy is now making entire Thanksgiving dinners every Wednesday evening. We’re talking things like turkey, dressing, gravy, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, pie. Maybe don’t ask any questions.
