Thursday, March 20th, 7pm: This outdoor art event -- Red Bull Illume -- is going to light up Piedmont Park for 10 straight days, but you'll want to be there on night one, 'cause it's kicking off with a stunt team parachuting into Midtown and, more importantly, booze.

Friday, March 21st, 10pm: After years of slinging smoked meat from a food truck/BBQ shack, Howard Hsu is celebrating the launch of his brick-and-mortar spot on North Highland near Ponce by giving away free eats from his new apps menu.

Sunday, March 23rd: Inman Park Restaurant Week concludes tonight, so it's your last chance to score the ‘hood's top eats at bargain prices, like Albert's $15 prix fixe (pork fritters, lamb BLT, etc.!), and the $35 pork shoulder & steak one at Kevin Rathbun’s Steak.
