Your Perks: 1) A monthly subscription to get world-class cigars delivered to your door. Smoke ’em ’cause you’ve got ’em. 2) Jay Z–approved bubbly for you to toast with this New Year’s. 3) One of these vintage watches. Or two of these vintage watches. You’ve got enough wrists.
Things to do for December 18, 2014
Gratis Oysters, a New Coffee Bar and Abbey Road
It’s the most wonderful time of the weekend.
Christmas Eve Tamales. Yay.
You should give whoever does the cooking on Christmas Eve a break this year. Instead, just tell the brothers Fox what you want—a smoked ham, some mac and cheese, a dozen brisket tamales—and pick it up on the day of. You’re like a tamale-giving Santa.
Tasteful Nudes. Rum. It’s a Date.
Tomorrow night in Brookhaven, a tasting of Independent Distilling Co.’s new rum is happening in a gallery full of abstract paintings from a Black Crowes member. Then on the Westside: an exhibit opening featuring some photography of clothing-free women. See, you’re all into art now.
Abbey Road: Horns and Strings Edition
The Beatles released their final album 45 years ago. And to mark this momentous occasion, some horns and strings musicians and a tribute band are about to recreate Abbey Road in its entirety at Variety Playhouse. Because recreating something in its non-entirety would be a thing that no one would do.
Free Late-Night Oysters. This Will Do.
In order to familiarize you with their new late-night menu, Makan won’t be making you pay any money for the Korean BBQ oysters, pork belly buns and other things that are on it when you show up there this weekend. Just for being you, we assume.
We Heard You Like New Coffee Shops
Chance you’ll be at Buckhead Atlanta doing some final shopping on Saturday: high.
Chance you’ll pop into the new Italian-style coffee bar called Corso Coffee for some wine: also high.
Chance you’ll return in a few months when they start serving panini and salads: you like lunch, so still high.
