The Weekend Guide

pour wine market and tasting room!

Lip-smacking good.

Pour Wine Market and Tasting Room
What: The rustic marketplace adheres to a try-before-you-buy philosophy, making it easy to keep your wet bar stocked with affordable vino ($12-$25) and your lips stained crimson.
Why: A six-flight tasting is only $20, which means we have a new pour habit to deal with.
When: Opens Mon. Mon.-Sat., 11 a.m.-10 p.m.
Where: 1418 Dresden Dr., Brookhaven (404-374-4035).

Hank & Cupcakes
What: Catch the Brooklyn-based electro-pop duo’s anything-goes set (clothes have been known to disappear) for a high-energy dance party.
Why: Joy Division’s melancholy “She’s Lost Control” gets a femme fatale makeover.
When: Fri., 9 p.m.
Where: The Drunken Unicorn, 736 Ponce de Leon Ave. NE, Midtown. Tickets online ($6) at ticketalternative.com or at the door ($8).

Cookbooks for Chefs and Foodies
What: Whether you’re in charge of the bird or just bringing wine, study up on seasonings and best vintages with cookbooks from James Beard, Ina Garten, Jamie Oliver, and more.
Why: You don’t want to give Grammy food poisoning — again.
When: T-Day is a week away. The time is now.
Where: Online at dailycandy.com.

What: The art jumps from boudoir to kitchen with the unveiling of an adventurous menu (ostrich fillets) made to rouse the palate in a passionate setting (dim chandeliers, sconce-lined red walls).
Why: Imbibe desserts like the Italian amante (espresso and Sambuca) with spiked whipped cream.
When: Opens Sun. Mon.-Thurs., 5:30-11 p.m.; Fri. & Sat., 5:30 p.m.-midnight; Sun., 5:30-10 p.m.

The Rink at Park Tavern Opens
