Hugh Acheson’s Coffee Pop-Up, Rosé Flights and Lynyrd Skynyrd

It’s hard out here for a weekend.

NEXT OF LYN’

In Case You Like Art and Lynyrd Skynyrd

Sometimes the drummer from Lynyrd Skynyrd drums. Other times he paints acrylic portraits and various European landscapes. This is one of those other times. Tonight, you’ll take a date to his exhibit, drink some gratis wine and try to remember/forget that he’s also the drummer from Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Friday
Hugh Acheson’s Coffee-Pop-Up Thing
CAPTAIN PERK

Hugh Acheson’s Coffee-Pop-Up Thing

Hugh Acheson will soon have a coffee shop at Ponce City Market. But for now, he has a one-day-only pop-up coffee shop in a newsstand just inside of it. They’ll serve until it’s gone tomorrow morning, so arrive early, say hi and then be glad you did all that.

Jun 19, 7am until it’s gone, Spiller Park Pop-Up at Ponce City Market, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, 404-900-7900

Saturday
Hundreds of Old-School Arcade Games
UP IN GAMES

Hundreds of Old-School Arcade Games

This weekend, there’ll be a gigantic hotel ballroom in North Druid Hills filled with over 200 old-school arcade and pinball machines all set to free-play. And the hotel has a restaurant, which means this’ll probably be the most dry-aged New York strip you’ve eaten while playing Dig Dug.

Rosé Flights, Anyone?
NO WAY, ROSÉ

Rosé Flights, Anyone?

Where there are Saturdays, there are patios. And where there are patios, there are flights of four different kinds of rosé. And where there’s rosé, there’s accompanying charcuterie and cheese. At least that’s what Vine and Tap thinks. Great thinkers.

Saturdays, 3-6pm, $30, Vine and Tap, 2770 Lenox Rd NE, 404-600-5820

Sunday
Cigars. Bourbon. Patio. Dad.
ROLL TENDING

Cigars. Bourbon. Patio. Dad.

On Sunday, grab Dad and take him to Smoke Ring. Order something like a half-rack or BBQ shrimp and grits. And a couple bourbons. Because those bourbons come paired with cigars that you’ll puff in tandem while sitting on the patio. That’s where you’ll give him his new cufflinks.

Jun 21, 11:30am-3pm, $15/pairing, Smoke Ring, 309 Nelson St SW, 404-228-6377
