So yeah, it almost became winter, but thankfully last week course-corrected itself back into the mid-60s and we are actually able to show off all those cute outfits we bought on sale in spring. Too bad we’re all about to out-“grow” them -- meaning there’s a whole lot of eating and drinking happening between now and Monday morning, including some free samples at Food Terminal West Midtown, two beer-based food festivals, the Georgia Seafood Festival, and free frozen pops to close things out. Here's everything you need to do in Atlanta this weekend (and here's everything you need to do in Atlanta all fall-long).
Friday, November 8
Very good Chamblee restaurant Food Terminal is bringing its Malaysian cuisine to West Midtown beginning today, and to celebrate they’re offering you a free appetizer sampler, which could be that samosa mentioned above or fried wontons. The deal extends to tomorrow as well; you’ve just gotta tag them or check in on social media for the deal.

The Mercedes-Benz 5K/Walk Like MADD is a marathon, a one-mile race, and a competition dash, all in one morning, starting at 6am. Fun fact: The 5K finish line happens to be inside The Benz, on the actual Falcons 50-yard line, so it’ll be nice to see someone from Atlanta advancing down the field for once (sorry, not sorry). It’s a fundraiser for Mothers Against Drunk Driving, and last year they raised $3 million.
