Things to do for May 13, 2010

The Weekender

Secret Doors, Fire Play and Sausage Burgers

The weekend is thirsty. Very thirsty.

Friday
The Roxy's New Lease on Life
NEW IDENTITY

The Roxy's New Lease on Life

Every once in a while, a timeless, iconic structure just needs a little "me time"... This Friday, after almost two years of silence, the well-worn den of whiskey and rock will reopen as the Buckhead Theatre, kicking things off with an after-party. Don't worry, though—there will still be rock. And whiskey.

Reopens May 14, Buckhead Theatre, 3110 Roswell Rd (at Peachtree)

Saturday
A Covert New Lounge in Midtown
SPEAKING EASY

A Covert New Lounge in Midtown

There's a small unmarked door just beyond the corner of Peachtree Walk and 12th. It's not Door 44... but you're close. It's called Parlour and it opens this Saturday as an invite-only lounge, your new home for Roger Moores (a gin and pomegranate gimlet) and the 44 Special (infused bourbon over ice). And yes, you're invited—you can drop our name at the door.

Open Fri-Sat starting May 15, 10pm-3am, Parlour, near Peachtree Walk and 12th St

Monday
Four Courses of Beer
BEER WEEK

Four Courses of Beer

Beer. Food. Both stellar stand-alone entities. Combine them for Atlanta Beer Week, and here's what you get: four courses paired with four beers. For the finale, your Crème Catalan and Salty Caramel Ganache arrives with a Left Hand Milk Stout. As all desserts should.

May 17-19, $38, Bocado, 887 Howell Mill Rd (south of Eighth), 404-815-1399

The Secret Stash at P'cheen
OFF THE MENU

The Secret Stash at P'cheen

Every Monday, P'cheen will feature The Secret Stash, an off-the-menu half-pound andouille burger topped with smoked gouda, fried homemade pickles, jalapeño bacon, caramelized onions and smoked jalapeño rémoulade on a garlic-herb grilled inside-out bun. Let that wash over you. And remember to ask nicely...

Tuesday
Democratic Luxury in Midtown
WE THE PEOPLE

Democratic Luxury in Midtown

The Atlanta arrival of some new threads by preppy hipster merchants Company of WE brings the kind of gear you might catch Spike Jonze wearing at a post-regatta clambake in the Hamptons. Stranger things have happened.
