Things to do for February 26, 2015

The Weekender

New Lunch Spot, New Cocktail Fest, New Weekend

Let it weekend.

Great News: It’s a Drinking Festival
FEST FRIENDS

Great News: It’s a Drinking Festival

If your plans for this weekend don’t involve Decatur’s inaugural cocktail festival, change them. Change them now. You’re looking at two days with a 1992 Dream Team–ish roster of local bartenders (Paul Calvert, Greg Best...) talking about cocktails and brunch and brunch cocktails and pretty much everything. Anyway, great idea.

Sunday
Second Self, Ladybird and You on a Bike
SPOKE SHOW

Second Self, Ladybird and You on a Bike

It’s time for a trip. On your bike. With a bunch of other people who also want to visit places like Second Self’s brewery and Ladybird in an effort to enjoy beers and meatballs. We don’t make the rules about what time it is.

Steven Satterfield’s Cookbook = Fun
BEG YOUR GARDEN

Steven Satterfield’s Cookbook = Fun

Now on your reading list: Root to Leaf, the new cookbook from Miller Union chef Steven Satterfield. Now on your calendar: a celebration of the book’s release at the Botanical Garden with many food and drink tastings. Best book-release party in a garden ever.

Monday
A New Place for Sandwiches in Midtown
SEAN OF THE BREAD

A New Place for Sandwiches in Midtown

In a few days, it’ll be Monday. And when that happens, Sean’s Harvest Market’s new Midtown location will help. Go there and have a sandwich. Possibly the Thai Tuna and Curried Black Bean Melt. Possibly a smoothie. Any smoothie. Every smoothie. Settle down.

Tuesday
It’s a New Pop-Up Called Junk Food
SLAM JUNK

It’s a New Pop-Up Called Junk Food

Soon, somewhere deep within the kitchen of Joystick, beyond the Mortal Kombat, beyond the pinball machines, offerings of oxtail tacos and puffed rice with pork belly will be prepared. And they’ll be courtesy of Junk Food, their latest in-house incubation from a chef who’s cooked at Rathbun’s and 4th & Swift. He’ll do.
