Your Perks: 1) 78% off Georges Rech polo shirts. Huge in France, bigger on Perks. 2) Six bottles of Château Montaud Côtes de Provence rosé. Which loosely translates to “summer’s ideal rosé.” 3) The kind of leather bag that’s practically begging to be taken on vacation. Begging.
Things to do for July 16, 2015
André 3000, Steak and a Bikini Obstacle Course
Read ’em and weekend.
Another Bonobos. Another Party.
If you can swing it, Bonobos is throwing a grand-opening party at their new Avalon store until 5pm today. They’ll have lawn games, beer, fried-chicken sliders and Arnold Palmers from Bantam + Biddy. If you can’t swing it, the clothes aren’t going anywhere.
Art + André 3000 = Road Trip
Tomorrow night at SCAD Savannah, André 3000 is taking 47 different jumpsuits that he wore on stage during Outkast’s 20th anniversary tour and including them in a new exhibition. There’s an opening party with beer, wine and Mr. 3000 himself. Actually, call him André. His father is Mr. 3000.
A Very French Weekend at Paris on Ponce
Your Paris on Ponce belated Bastille Day celebration looks like this:
Friday: A Beltline parade. Women will dance. Music will play. People will parade.
Saturday: Bikini obstacle course, mac and cheese contest and some burlesque.
Sunday: Orpheus Brewing Beltline scavenger hunt, then more burlesque.
Yep. Just like in France.
You Will Now Receive the Gift of Gelato
Maybe on Sunday you go have some kind of summery gin drink on the patio at Davio’s. And then maybe someone brings you two gratis scoops of s’mores-flavored gelato. But only on this one particular Sunday. Wise patio choice.
Spiked Snow Cones and a Fleeting Brunch
Chama Gaúcha is about to throw a Belo Sol party, which means “Beautiful Sun.” It’ll be (appropriately) out on their patio, and you’ll have access to half-price appetizers and spiked snow cones. Plus, a one-time brunch with steak and eggs and Bloody Marias. You probably get that last translation.
