The Weekender

Two BBQ Fests and an In-Town Top Golf

The weekend says hi.

Thursday
On Juice, and Where to Grab Some
FAST AND JUICE

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.

Friday
Come and Meet Your New Gelato
FOR WHOM THE GEL’ TOLLS

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.

Available now at Varuni Napoli, 1540 Monroe Dr NE, 404-709-2690

Here Now, an In-Town Top Golf
SWINGERS

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.

Saturday
Not One, but Two Barbecue Fests
SWINE AND DANDY

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.

Sunday
Ever Tried Brandy-Beer Before?
BARREL IN MIND

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.
