Your Perks: 1) Vintage Rolexes. Today is totally the day you take the plunge. 2) Cigars made from carefully aged Dominican tobacco. Your barbecues wouldn’t be the same without them. 3) Bold shirts and polos from a Milanese brand that’s achieved international acclaim. No big whoop.
Things to do for May 21, 2015
Jazz, Ice Cream and Fernet Slushies
The weekendberries taste like weekendberries.
What Your New Patio Shirts Look Like
Meet Trim. Trim is from Nashville and makes denim and chambray shirts. You can preorder them now, and they ship in June. You’re working with a darker washed one, a micro-dotted one and one that might be complemented well by a horse and spurs. You can borrow the horse.
Little Cable Car Jazz Crawl Here
The city’s first Jazz Crawl begins today at the steps of the Woodruff Park streetcar station, where live jazz will be happening. Then you’ll board and make stops at six different places like Edgewood Speakeasy and Noni’s, where live jazz will continue. In conclusion: jazz.
Kind Of Hot Outside. Ice Cream?
If you learn anything today, learn this: all three Jeni’s locations will be back open tomorrow at 7pm after closing for a month. Jeni is the best kind of enabler.
A Very Mad Men Evening with the ASO
The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra is doing you a date-night solid this weekend and playing a selection of music from the Mad Men era. Some from the ’50s, some from the ’60s and some from that episode where Megan sang in French after dinner. Fingers crossed.
Please, Enjoy the Fernet Slushies
Your Memorial Day begins at Joystick. They’re opening at noon and serving a one-day menu collab from Junk Food and Porch Light Latin Kitchen. Expect fried beer can chicken roulade, coriander brisket and Joystick’s new fernet-and-ginger-beer slushy. They really took that to the next level. Game joke.
