VIN NUMBER

Goodbye, Tantra. Hello, Sexy Frenchness.

WANTED
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.

Saturday
Aw, the Optimist Is Growing Up So Fast
DEUX SEASON

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.

JUST BIDDING

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.

Sunday
Eat Corn Dogs. Listen to Bebop.
DIRTY ’BOP

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.

Wednesday
Thanksgiving Dinner for No Real Reason
GRAVY SEALS

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.
