The summer of Perks continues with: 1) High-tech pants that keep you cool regardless of how hot it gets outside. 2) 30% off a damn good-looking bicycle for cruising around the city (or the beach boardwalk). 3) Everything you need to cook six delicious meals at home. Just add date.
Things to do for June 19, 2014
Dinner in a Cathedral and Lunch on an “Executive Balcony”
The weekend isn’t kidding around this time.
A Very Powerful Way to Power-Lunch
There are important lunches with a client. And then there are important lunches with a client. For the latter, know that St. Cecilia just started taking business-lunch-specific reservations for its semiprivate “Executive Balcony” upstairs. Yes, they went ahead and made that a thing that exists outside of a Scorsese movie.
Look at Art. Drink. Listen to Rap.
You’re going to a kickoff party for a weekend-long exhibit with art from nine Southern states. If not for the Good Food Truck, the DJ and the creamsicle cocktails, then definitely for the performance by two female rappers. But probably for the creamsicle cocktails. And the art. Maybe. Okay, bye.
JCT Bar Is So Party-y This Summer
JCT Bar is going to start throwing parties on random Saturdays throughout summer. Go check out the first one this Saturday. They’ll be grilling sausages, making daiquiris and hosting a band playing songs from the ’60s through the ’80s like “Twist and Shout” and “Footloose.” Insert dance-police joke here.
It’s Right to Watch the World Cup Here
The Atlanta Summer Beer Fest is taking advantage of its “happening to coincide with the World Cup... ness” by letting you in early to watch the game over German beers. To recap: you’re drinking beer before going to drink over 150 beers. Maybe less if you have a human-size liver.
Well, You’re Not Cooking This Sunday
We hope you never tire of eating dinner. Here’s why: places like Restaurant Eugene and Kimball House are about to make it for you in the cathedral where the Peachtree Road Farmers’ Market is held. Also, we hope you never tire of Eventide beer. Or string bands. Or general overwhelming happiness.
