Things to do for October 30, 2014

The Weekender

A Cemetery Party and a Park Filled with Lobster

Trick or weekend.

Thursday
This 130-Year-Old Cemetery Wants You
THE CEMETERY PARTY

This 130-Year-Old Cemetery Wants You

This is the part where you quickly RSVP for a party that takes place in the mausoleum and other parts of a 130-year-old cemetery so that you can drink beer and tell ghost stories there. Just a friendly reminder that this is that part.

Friday
Few Bands on a Putting Green
THE CONCERT

Few Bands on a Putting Green

Tomorrow night, the Optimist has your pre-Halloween party dinner entertainment in the form of three gratis concerts on the putting green. The acts go by the names of Gringo Star, DJ Agent and Indianapolis Jones. The “polis” really makes all the difference there.

How Paris on Ponce Does Halloween
THE FÊTE

How Paris on Ponce Does Halloween

You’ve probably never been to Paris on Ponce on Halloween before. The fact that they’re about to throw their first Halloween party may have contributed to that. It’s got contortionists and fire breathers and a musician performing a score to the silent film Nosferatu. Which makes it less silent, but sure.

Saturday
Well if It Isn’t a New Westside Brewery
THE BEER

Well if It Isn’t a New Westside Brewery

When you hear that a couple of guys are opening a Westside brewery, you consider going. When you hear that one is a SweetWater vet, you consider it harder. And when you hear that they’re serving four beers including a spicy Thai Wheat, you have way less to consider.

Sunday
Hey, It’s the City’s First Lobster Fest
THE FESTIVAL

Hey, It’s the City’s First Lobster Fest

Look over there. Into the future. It’s a lobster festival with four bands and a ridiculous amount of lobster-oriented comestibles from places like Villains, Rosebud, Parish and the Atlanta Fish Market. You may stop looking over there now.
