Your Perks: 1) An umbrella that can resist gale-force winds. Though maybe you should just go inside if it comes to that. 2) Button-ups from the one and only Jared Lang. You like them. 3) A specially engraved bottle of Johnnie Walker Platinum. Say it with whiskey.
Things to do for August 27, 2015
Ric Flair, Meatballs and Never-Ending Pancakes
What goes around weekends around.
Oh, Just Hanging Out with Ric Flair
1) Sidebar is turning 12, and they’re requesting your presence at their party tomorrow night. 2) The Nature Boy Ric Flair will be there. He’ll just... be there. So will live music and drink specials. And we already mentioned Ric Flair...
Looks Like You’re Dancing This Weekend
We almost hesitate to tell you how many performers will be at this weekend’s Imagine EDM music festival. But here goes: 76. And sadly, 75 of them are not Lil Jon doing his own DJ set. You really only need the one, though.
Pancakes and Art in a Freight Depot
We’re working off the assumption that the only thing surpassing your taste for art is your taste for pancakes. And... probably a bunch of other things. Regardless, here’s a touring art show with over 50 artists, live music, live body painting and endless pancakes. It should really be a permanent exhibit.
Many, Many Meatballs
In other fest-related news: the Atlanta Meatball Festival is happening on Sunday. Show up, listen to some live music, drink some limoncello and try some meatballs from 23 restaurants like St. Cecilia, Cibo e Beve and Community Smith. Just think of it as a meatball cleanse.
Two Local Heroes Become One. Again.
Once again, the culinary stars have aligned and Fox Bros. and Taqueria Del Sol are teaming up for a festival celebrating the bounty of Hatch chiles from New Mexico. Be on the lookout for things like green-chile beer and green-chile Frito pies. You won’t have to look out too hard.
