Things to do for January 15, 2015

The Weekender

Dollar Oysters, a New Deli and a Lawn Party

And the nomination for Best Original Weekend goes to...

Thursday
One Hour. $1 Oysters. Optimist.
SHELL CURVE

One Hour. $1 Oysters. Optimist.

Saltines. Tabasco. Horseradish. Large amounts of cash. One of these does not belong at the Optimist for exactly one hour every day from here until the end of time. We guess what we’re saying is: they have a new $1 oyster happy hour. And apparently they’re immortal.

Mon-Fri, 5-6pm; Sat-Sun, 3-4pm, The Optimist, 914 Howell Mill Rd, 404-477-6260

Friday
Dear Miller Brothers, You Shouldn’t Have
MILLER TIME

Dear Miller Brothers, You Shouldn’t Have

The brothers Miller are offering 30% to 50% off a bunch of wearable things. Your findings will be both dashing (cashmere sweaters, Peter Millar quilted jackets...) and made for warmth. Excellent news, as being cold and not looking good are both not preferable.

Café at Linton’s, Now Minus Entry Fee
ADMISSION CONTROL

Café at Linton’s, Now Minus Entry Fee

Past: You had to pay admission to the Botanical Garden to eat at the Café at Linton’s.
Present: You no longer have to do the first in order to do the second.
Future: Suddenly brighter.

Saturday
Timone’s Is Back, and It Brought a Deli
NEW DELI

Timone’s Is Back, and It Brought a Deli

There was a time when Timone’s was just a pizza joint. Those were some fine times. But after shutting down in September to remodel, they’ve now reopened and added a new deli with things like house-brined-corned-beef Reuben sandwiches. These are some finer times.

Now reopen, Timone’s, 1409 N Highland Ave NE, 404-809-2979

Sunday
This Little Piggy Went to Kimball House
LAWN STARS

This Little Piggy Went to Kimball House

The team from Asheville’s forthcoming Buxton Hall is coming to town, and they’re showing off their skills at Kimball House this Sunday. Activities include, but are not limited to: pig roasting, cocktail slinging and lawn gaming. Everyone loves a good lawn game. Except maybe pigs.

Jan 18, noon-3pm, no cover (pay per item), Kimball House, 303 E Howard Ave, Decatur, 404-378-3502
