Things to do for August 07, 2014
Two New Restaurants. One Has Donut Burgers.
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty Dumpty had a great weekend.
Shirts and Other Nearly Free Things
Us: Psst. Come here.
You: Why are we whispering?
Us: Because we want you to know that things like short-sleeved linen shirts from Scotch & Soda, checked Billy Reid sport shirts and some fantastically green pants are up to 75% off at 310 Rosemont right now.
You: ... are already gone.
Nachos and Donut Burgers. Proceed.
A new Memphis-style barbecue joint just opened in Dunwoody. And since you’re already debating whether it’s worth the jaunt or not, we have 19 words for you: BBQ nachos and donut burgers from a World BBQ Champion named Melissa Cookston whose last name totally sounds planned.
Get on This Fried Pig Ear in Midtown
It’s been too long since you’ve had Taiwanese. Probably. Anyway, now that we’ve planted a seed of craving in your mind, you should know about Ah-Ma’s. It’s a casual new spot in Midtown with handmade pork belly bao, fried pig ear and rabbit salad. So it’s not a vegetarian place.
Warning: steer clear of Piedmont Park on Saturday. A bunch of stuff you hate will be there. Seafood like raw oyster shooters and shrimp tacos. Beer from places like Orpheus and Jailhouse. Music like reggae and a brass band. Just looking out.
Canoe in August Can Only Mean...
WHILE YOU WERE OUT:
—Summer called. Just wanted to remind you about her going-away party at Canoe this weekend. Says there’ll be plenty of pork butt slathered in beer-spiked BBQ sauce and a live string band.
—Fall called. No real message. Only laughter.
