Your Perks: 1) A Moroccan-goatskin-leather bag. No two are alike. How very snowflake of them. 2) Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne 2005 in a personally engraved box. Choose your words carefully. 3) Designer sunglasses from Alexander McQueen, Givenchy, Balmain... The list goes on and on.
Things to do for August 13, 2015
Two BBQ Fests and an In-Town Top Golf
The weekend says hi.
On Juice, and Where to Grab Some
Dtox just opened in the breezeway above Ormsby’s on the Westside. It’s got a little sliding window where you’ll walk up and grab juices, lattes, salads, soups and wheatgrass shots. There, now the “Juice News” portion of your day is done.
Come and Meet Your New Gelato
There once was a time when you couldn’t get housemade gelato at Varuni Napoli. That time is gone. Forget about that time. Now, after finishing your pizza, you’ll cap things off with a cone of tiramisu or cappuccino with chocolate-covered espresso beans. Or vanilla. Whatever.
Here Now, an In-Town Top Golf
Midmorning Bloodys. Friendly driving and chipping competitions. Beer queso. Good news, friends: Top Golf opens a new location tomorrow on the Westside. Golf clap.
Not One, but Two Barbecue Fests
Two meat-heavy fetes for you:
Atlanta B-B-Q Fest: You’ll enjoy live music as different teams compete in various BBQ styles. Clearly, you’re the winner.
Decatur BBQ Fest: More live music and food from locals like Fox Bros. and Sweet Auburn. Plus, a high-gravity specialty pouring station. You win again.
Ever Tried Brandy-Beer Before?
For this party, a bunch of local breweries made some beers, stuck them inside former distilling barrels, let them rest for a while and waited for them to turn amazing. One example: Terrapin Rye Triple IPA aged inside a grape brandy barrel. Right. And you get to drink that.
