Things to do for November 06, 2014

The Weekender

A New BBQ Joint and Free Ice Cream. Strong.

The best part of waking up is weekend in your cup.

Thursday
Texas-Style BBQ by Way of Compton
TRUE BLUDSO

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
FREE STYLE

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.

Friday
Bank Left When You Hit the Lingerie
’ELLO THERE

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.

Saturday
It’s King of Pops Field Day Time Again
FIELD-GOOD STORY

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.
Sincerely,
Popsicles

Sunday
Smart Place for a New Food Truck Park
SAVED BY THE BELT

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.
