Saying something is "for the birds" generally means it's gonna flop, which doesn't make a ton of sense, as those guys usually have people throwing mad bread their way. Similarly rejecting that old idiom: The Nest Bar & Grill, grand-opening tonight
Owned by recent Emory grads who've made-over Moya/Selam and renamed it in honor of their eagle, The Nest's top floor rocks a 60-seat bar with 12 TVs on "nesty" oak walls from an old GA barn, while the gold-walled downstairs dance hall (dubbed "The Rabbit Hole") boasts the same killer sound system used at the Lakewood Amphitheater to create "a cocoon of music" -- so yeah, you've gotta get in there and do The Worm a bunch. Starting with tonight's show from Killer Mike, they'll host a free summer concert series that'll include all types of sounds (rock, hip-hop, dubstep, etc.), and performances from such acts as new Kanye-signee Cyhi Da Prince, award-winning turntablist DJ Klever, Playboy Tre, and AL emcee Jackie Chain, who obviously stunts super hard. In a couple weeks, the kitchen'll be firing up similar hotness like gator fritters, ostrich burgers stuffed with porcini mushrooms/aged cheddar/shallots, and full-en-trees ranging from marinated duck breast over five-cheese ravioli, to roasted pork shoulder w/ sweet potato puree, to pesto-stuffed airline chicken breast, as ordering the seafood is always a bad idea
Lest you go thirsty, there'll be nine drafts (Hopsecutioner, both Wild Heavens), 22 bottled brews, classic cocktails (Bulleit Old Fashioned, London Pearl), and fishbowls like the Malibu cran-cherry/raspberry vodka/grape Kool-Aid "Purple Rain", ensuring that just like in a bread-littered park, there's a little Prince everywhere.
