Things to do for December 18, 2014

The Weekender

Gratis Oysters, a New Coffee Bar and Abbey Road

It’s the most wonderful time of the weekend.

Thursday
Christmas Eve Tamales. Yay.
FOX HUNT

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.

Through Dec 24, Holiday Dinner at Fox Bros BBQ, 1238 DeKalb Ave NE, 404-414-0826

Friday
Tasteful Nudes. Rum. It’s a Date.
COUNTING GALLERIES

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
ABBEY CHIC

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.
MAKAN WAVES

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.

Dec 19-20, 10pm-2am, Makan, 130 Clairemont Ave, Ste 100, Decatur, 404-996-6504, see the menu

Saturday
We Heard You Like New Coffee Shops
CRASH CORSO

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.

Opens Dec 20, Corso Coffee, 3035 Peachtree Rd, 678-553-9009
