Your Perks: 1) A case of six carefully selected incredible red wines from the Columbia Valley. Only the best for you. 2) An aerodynamic, rip-proof and virtually weightless umbrella. 3) A number of vintage-inspired, gallery-worthy, LED-illuminated prints. You’re about to see the light.
Things to do for November 06, 2014
A New BBQ Joint and Free Ice Cream. Strong.
The best part of waking up is weekend in your cup.
Texas-Style BBQ by Way of Compton
The story: A Texas-style barbecue spot called Bludso’s BBQ opened in Compton, had some
success changing people’s outlooks on life with its pork links and rib tips and then opened a second
location in Castleberry Hill.
The moral: It pays to listen to barbecue stories.
This Ice Cream Costs Zero Dollars
If today’s your birthday, we hope you’ll have free ice cream thrown at you wherever you go. If it’s not, go to the new Jeni’s in Decatur. They’ll be giving out gratis scoops of flavors like Middle West Whiskey Eggnog and Sweet Potato with Torched Marshmallows. Happy Maybe-Birthday.
Bank Left When You Hit the Lingerie
Between now and December 25, you’ll find yourself in the occasional mall. About that. A new Mediterranean-and-Italian-leaning restaurant called Ruscello just opened on Nordstrom Perimeter Mall’s third floor next to the lingerie section. How very “exit through the gift shop” of them.
It’s King of Pops Field Day Time Again
Dear Valued You,
This is a reminder that your presence is requested at the King of Pops annual field day this Saturday. Don’t forget to wear the proper shoes for bolo-tossing, badminton-playing, drinking, gratis-popsicle-eating, dancing, dizzy bat-ing, and three-legged-racing.
Smart Place for a New Food Truck Park
Sundays are pretty good for doing things on the Beltline. Biking. Jogging. Walking until you see a mirage of Highland Bakery on Wheels and other food trucks and then learning that they’re actually real because a new food truck gathering happens there every weekend now. Eating food.
