Free Donuts and 14 Stores That’ll Disappear with Summer

The weekend can’t even.

Thursday

Free Donuts. Nothing to Not Like Here.
GLAZE OF OUR LIVES

Free Donuts. Nothing to Not Like Here.

Definitely in order for tomorrow: happy hour with plenty of Chambord and rum and Frangelico. You should probably get some cocktails, too. Because that other stuff’s already in the donuts and sauces that STK is graciously bestowing upon you for National Donut Day. Best fake holiday ever.

STORES FOR THE TAKING

14 Stores That’ll Vanish with Summer

It would probably come off weird if we suggested you go shopping for records, art and socks in Downtown this weekend. So here’s a little context. Fourteen shops are popping up over there for the summer. Places like Criminal Records, art galleries and a random sock store. Maybe still a little weird.

A Vegetable-Flavored Ice Cream Contest
BEET DOWN

A Vegetable-Flavored Ice Cream Contest

Ice cream: nice. Vegetables: eh, not so bad either. Putting the two together: well, you’re probably undecided. So decide at this new vegetable-flavored ice cream contest at the Peachtree farmers’ market. You’ll sample flavors like beet butter pecan and carrot. If you see kale ice cream, leave. Leave hard.

Mint Juleps and Blue Crab on a Patio
SMOKE’S ON YOU

Mint Juleps and Blue Crab on a Patio

Smoke Ring is having a blue crab crack in anticipation of the Belmont Stakes on Saturday. You know the kind. There’ll be newspaper-covered wooden tables on the patio. Mint Juleps and big hats everywhere. You cracking open crabs and beers and going, “This is so great.”

Tuesday
These Models Should Be Wearing Helmets
SPINDLE DOCTORS

These Models Should Be Wearing Helmets

Some people take bike fashion very seriously. Others take being entertained by people who take bike fashion very seriously, very seriously. Whichever category you fall into, the Spindle is hosting a cyclist-inspired fashion show with food to eat, beer to drink and a Rick Astley playlist to... nod to like everything makes sense.
