The Weekend Guide

puppy love!

And they called it …

Puppy Love
Make a date with your pawed partner for drinks and treats (for both of you) and dog-friendly raffle and schwag to benefit the Atlanta Humane Society’s 1873 Society Club. (Stay the night with your pup and get a special room rate and amenities thru Sunday.)
Why: Barky Bark can slobber all he wants at the canine kissing booth.
When: Sat., 2-4 p.m.
Where: The Westin Buckhead Atlanta, 3391 Peachtree Rd. NE, Buckhead (404-365-0065). R.S.V.P. (by Friday) to 404-688-1466 or rsvp@lizlapiduspr.com.

That Pie Place
Forget the store-bought tongue burners. These pie pockets of egg, cheese, and Italian sausage; buffalo chicken; and vegetarian black bean are baked in flaky, buttery dough (get sweet potato tots on the side).
Why: Dessert selections include s’mores, pecan, fruit, and Elvis.
When: Opens tomorrow. Mon.-Thurs., 7 a.m.-9 p.m.; Fri., 7 a.m.-10 p.m.; Sat., 8 a.m.-10 p.m.; Sun., 8 a.m.-9 p.m.

One Midtown Kitchen’s New Cocktails
Newbies include Southern Tradition (peanut-infused bourbon and Coca-Cola garnished with salted peanuts and served in a vintage Coke bottle) and Gimme a Beet (beet-infused vodka, house-made limoncello, and fresh thyme).
Why: The cheese plate and Kit Kat bar are still the same.
When: Sun.-Wed., 5:30-10 p.m.; Thurs.-Sat., 5:30-11 p.m.
Where: 559 Dutch Valley Rd., Midtown (404-892-4111).

SweetWater Brewery’s Sweet 16 Anniversary Party
The brewery breaks out the secret stash of beers (‘11 Happy Ending, Brett Raspberry Creeper, Big Old Belgian Blue Balls, and The Gimp, to name a few), while Yacht Rock Revue tunes the radical shindig.
Why: Go dressed as The Bangles, peeps from The Goonies, or Long Duk Dong; the best ’80s ensemble wins a sixteen-person party at the brewery.
When: Sun., 2-6 p.m.
Where: 195 Ottley Dr., Midtown (404-691-2537).
