Things to do for April 30, 2015
New Brunch, New Shoes and Fast Horses
It’s the weekend in a photo finish.
Billy Reid’s Throwing a Horse Party
Tonight, you’ve finally got a reason to celebrate horses. And races. And your overall person. Head to Billy Reid, check out his new Derby-inspired ties and pocket squares and then allow yourself some gratis mint juleps. Could be a theme here.
We Get It, Tod’s. Your Shoes Are Great.
See, while the majority of your body is pretty content with being American, your feet long for Italian citizenship. And because the absurd ability to nationalize your feet doesn’t yet exist, Italian-made loafers and drivers luckily do in the new Tod’s at Buckhead Atlanta. Close one.
Looks Like Bellwoods Made You a Brunch
No time to talk. New brunch at Bellwoods. Highlights: chilaquiles layered with mozzarella, corn and eggs. Belgian waffles and wings with peach butter and jalapeño-vanilla maple syrup. A build-your-own-Bloody bar. Well, just enough time to talk.
And You’re Off...
There’s no point in flying to Kentucky. Especially when the Chastain Horse Park is right down the road and will have live music, lawn games and an outdoor casino for celebrating the big race this weekend. Go there, wear a hat and drink something julep-y. A mint julep, for example.
Music. Beer. Food Trucks. Graves.
You could also head to Oakland Cemetery on Saturday. That’s where bands like the Black Lips will be giving tours through the grave sites of 14 different people who were responsible for shaping Atlanta as a music town. And there’ll be some beer, wine and food trucks. Classic cemetery.
