Things to do for April 23, 2015

The Weekender

Bocce, Johnny’s Hideaway and a King of Pops Musical

There’s no place like weekend.

Thursday
Oh, Boy. Happy Anniversary, Johnny’s.
HERE’S JOHNNY’S

Oh, Boy. Happy Anniversary, Johnny’s.

Johnny’s Hideaway is turning 36. So show up tonight, locate the buffet, locate the open bar, then locate a cougar den and ask if they’re also turning 36. They’ll laugh. You’ll laugh. Sinatra will come on. Johnny’s.

Saturday
And Here We Have a King of Pops Musical
SING OF POPS

And Here We Have a King of Pops Musical

This is the part where you find out your favorite popsicle dynasty has gone from the streets to the stage in a musical adaptation of their rise to glory. Yep. There’s a King of Pops musical now. And naturally, it’s set in a postapocalyptic world. Hopefully chocolate sea salt still exists there.

Sunday
Brunch. Knives. Slippers. Bocce.
HURRY UP AND STATE

Brunch. Knives. Slippers. Bocce.

This Sunday, while you’re at Empire State South brunching and bocce-ing and sipping mimosas, you’ll also be perusing things like handmade wallets and Kilim rug slippers from Oakleaf & Acorn and Res Ipsa. Because they’ll both be there, too. And that’s okay. You’re okay with that.

Patio Sangria and Flamenco in Buckhead
BASQUE JEEVES

Patio Sangria and Flamenco in Buckhead

You could go to southern Spain. You could leave tomorrow. Make your way to some rooftop and drink $4 tinto de veranos, eat half-price charred, steamed leeks and listen to a flamenco guitarist. Or you could just do that every Sunday at Gypsy Kitchen instead. We’ll also accept “both.”

Tuesday
Beer. And Helping to Build a Park.
PARK, WHO GOES THERE

Beer. And Helping to Build a Park.

The Atlanta Waterworks Park is getting closer to completion. And to help it out, you’ll soon find yourself at Monday Night Brewing, drinking beer, listening to live music and eating things from places like Oddbird and Figo. Eating biscuits and drinking beer is the least you could do.
