Your Perks: 1) Button-ups in so many summer colors and styles, it’ll make your head spin. In a good way. 2) Ultra-insulated flasks, koozies, wedge-shaped ice molds... Basically a bunch of things to keep your beverages chilled. Very important. 3) A contraption that turns alcohol into gas. Seeing is believing.
Things to do for June 12, 2015
Bloodys with Wings in Them and a World Cup Party
Zero to weekend in three seconds.
This weekend, you’ll be immersed in Women’s World Cup action and beer at Candler Park. Soccerfest starts tonight, so go and watch the USA vs. Sweden match with pints of Blue Point Brewing and Goose Island beers and barbecue from Smoke Ring. Nice one, women’s soccer.
VaHi Has a New Pie Place. There’s Pie.
Your petitions, sit-ins and dessert-related hunger strikes have all worked. And although that stuff probably didn’t happen, Pie Shop has still opened a new location in Virginia Highland. Ready yourself for delights of the butterscotch, ginger molasses and chicken pot pie varieties. Chicken: the most versatile of all the pies.
Take Some Prices and Divide Them by Two
Summer in Atlanta. Kind of hot. But Billy Reid lives in the South and he gets this, so he did you a solid by offering you up to 50% off things like cotton popovers, funky-patterned button-ups and Italian leather monk-straps. But really, those work anytime.
Hello, New Breakfast. Hi, New Brunch.
Spice to Table: Has a new breakfast service with some traditional Indian things like appam
(a thin pancake) and Kerala-spiced coffee (a spiced coffee).
D.B.A.: Is launching their inaugural brunch with things like Baked Cinnamon Bun French Toast and Bloody Marys garnished with Korean BBQ wings. Way to make an entrance, D.B.A.
Last night, you dreamed that on Saturday you’d be at the Root City Market doing things like perusing over 30 local vendors like Andover Trask, Oakleaf & Acorn and Xocolatl Small Batch Chocolate. You also dreamed there was live music and cold-pressed nitro coffee. It was all so real.
