The Weekender

Coffee, Beer and Probably Too Much Pork

SPF Weekend

And Toward Your West, a Gallery Opening
OPENING SESAME

And Toward Your West, a Gallery Opening

Your date on Friday involves a gallery opening from artist Ryan Coleman, who’s worked with Jeff Koons (yes, the big balloon-animal sculpture guy). You’ll gaze upon his paintings with some gratis beer and wine and whisper to your date, “You know, he’s worked with Jeff Koons.” Don’t whisper that.

Pop-Up Hot Dogs at Krog Street. Neat.
KRAUT’S HONOR

Pop-Up Hot Dogs at Krog Street. Neat.

“To be frank, these hot dogs are delicious” is a regrettable and accurate pun you’ll be making this weekend after visiting the Doggy Dogg pop-up at the Spotted Trotter. There’ll be hot dogs galore, Spotted Trotter bratwurst and add-ons like housemade sauerkraut and kimchi. Just like your childhood kimchi dogs.

Saturday
Pretty Good Timing, New Fadó
PINT TAKEN

Pretty Good Timing, New Fadó

Fadó is about to have a new Midtown location. We don’t need to tell you that this is a home run selection for any forthcoming Irish holidays. But we are. And it is. Mostly because beer, whiskey and honey-chipotle shrimp tacos will be involved. Ah, the Irish and their tacos.

Slated to open Mar 14, Fadó Irish Pub, 933 Peachtree St NE, 404-260-7910

Monday
The Old Fourth Ward Has Some New Coffee
ROAST OFFICE

The Old Fourth Ward Has Some New Coffee

Condesa Coffee’s new Auburn Avenue location is happening soon. Which means they’re forcing you to choose where to enjoy Counter Culture espresso and bagels with Atlantic smoked salmon lox. Tough choice. Let’s break, grab some coffee and bagels, and revisit this in a few.

Beyond
Kevin Gillespie’s Book. Also, a Party.
SWINE LANGUAGE

Kevin Gillespie’s Book. Also, a Party.

Kevin Gillespie. The Pied Piper of Pork. The Sultan of Swine. The Emper... too much. Anyway, the man behind Gunshow is throwing a release party for his new book called Pure Pork Awesomeness. Reserve your space and enjoy things like Korean barbecued bulgogi and buffalo pork wings. And a book.
