Things to do for December 11, 2014

The Weekender

Two New Restaurants and a Golf Cart Shuttle. Weekend Ho.

Takes weekend to know one.

Thursday
Ask for Mexican, Receive Mexican
MADRE’S DAY

Ask for Mexican, Receive Mexican

Here’s our impression of you at Dos Madres, this new Mexican spot in Decatur: “I’ll have the grilled tequila lime chicken breast. Churros for dessert. And some of those palomas that were developed with the Kimball House people, good sir.” Sometimes you say “good sir.”

This Golf Cart Will Take You to Bars
SHUTTLE YOU HAVE

This Golf Cart Will Take You to Bars

Goin’ Coastal has a new situation happening that may benefit you greatly. You see, it’s this golf cart. This golf cart that takes you anywhere within a 1.5-mile radius of the restaurant and doesn’t cost you anything. Sorry, every other form of transportation.

Friday
Like a Really, Really Small Sundance
FLICK VAN DYKE

Like a Really, Really Small Sundance

Some of the local films you can see at the High tomorrow night:
—A documentary about a dry cleaner owner whose nickname is the Mayor of Midtown.
—A short in which a feral cat explores Starlight Drive-In.
—Some other ones that a date would maybe hopefully be into.

Saturday
Beer. Ping-Pong. Other Stuff.
YELLOW THERE

Beer. Ping-Pong. Other Stuff.

This time last year, Chrome Yellow had just opened in Buckhead. This time this year, they’re having an anniversary party in their pop-up with ping-pong, Three Taverns beer and random raffles. This time next year, the world.

Monday
Hey, a New Shawarma-and-Falafel Spot
GETTING SHAWARMA

Hey, a New Shawarma-and-Falafel Spot

If your normal inclination is to stay away from places with pink, turquoise and orange color schemes... well, that’s fair. But make an exception in this case. Because there’s steak shawarma, chicken kefta and baklava in this new Eastern Mediterranean spot in Midtown. Baklava: 1. Color schemes: 0.
