Raiders of the Lost Ark - in IMAX!: Wednesday, September 12, 2012

Here's what you do Wednesday, September 12, 2012

Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones
It's been called a perfect movie.  It's been called not a movie, but a 105 minute thrill ride that plays like an anthology of all the best parts of Saturday matinees of all time.  Whatever you wanna call it, it's a darn entertaining time.  And, this year, it's been re-released for it's 30th anniversary.  In IMAX!

I watched Indian Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark for the first time in a dinky theater in Bermuda where I was in elementary school.  It was literally the best thing I'd ever seen.  For months after, we'd search high and low for vines, ropes, whatever we could find that could be imagined as a whip.  We were all Indiana Jones that summer.  And now we can be again.

On Wednesday go get the IMAX experience and relive your childhood.  It's on at Atlantic Station at 1:30.  Go all out.  Buttered popcorn.  A bucket of coke.  It's all good.  $15 per person.

Here's What You Do does a new day plan every day.  Like us on Facebook below to get updates on your Facebook page.

Here's what you do Wednesday

First:  Food & Wine did a survey of the best breakfast sandwiches in the country.  Try to make one of them today.  How about the biscuit sandwich from Dahlia Bakery and Serious Biscuit in Seattle.  From Food & Wine:
"The offshoot of chef Tom Douglas’s flagship restaurant, Dahlia Lounge, offers a gourmet twist on an Egg McMuffin: a fresh-baked English muffin topped with a fried-to-order egg, house-cured ham, cheddar cheese and a spicy dab of Dijon mustard. Douglas’s new joint, Serious Biscuit, serves over-the-top sandwiches on the house specialty. One biscuit sandwich includes fried green tomato, bacon, remoulade, and egg. tomdouglas.com"

The have the recipe for this sandwich and all the others in their list right there on Food & Wind's site.  Breakfast should be about $20.

Second: Now that you're in the culinary spirit, try out the Dunwoody Green Market.

The Dunwoody Green Market will get you ready for a week of fresh, healthy cooking.
From the market:

"Dunwoody Green Market is a 7th year Producer only Market that is open April - November . Our hours are Wednesdays from 8am-12:00 Noon. A Producer Only Market means that only vendors who make or grow what they sell can participate. 
Our vendors offer a wide range of seasonal vegetables, fruits (including hard to find heirloom varieties), locally produced honey, and free-range eggs (chicken and duck). Beef, pork, and poultry, including heritage breeds, cured meats (bacon, sausages) are available at the market each week. Various artisans, bakers and unique food purveyors complete the market. 
All of our produce vendors grow using organic methods and most are Certified Naturally Grown or Organic."
Try to get some free-range duck eggs.  So good!  Stock up for breakfasts over the next week!  $60

Third: Head on down to Regal Atlantic Station for Raiders of the Lost Ark.  Starts at 1:30.  $15 per person.

Fourth:  Nap.  Raiders can take it out of a person.  ZZZZZZZ.

Fifth: Tasting Notes at the St. Regis.  Did you know that the St. Regis hosts a wine tasting each Wednesday from 5:30 to 7:30 called Tasting Notes.  In their opulent wine room, you'll be joined by St. Regis Atlanta Wine Director and Sommelier Harry Constantinescu to explore wines from around the globe.  Wine flights are presented with five wines for $25 per guest.  $5 for Valet tip.

Make some tasting notes at the St. Regis in Buckhead at 5:30 - 7:30.

Finally: It's just across from the St. Regis.  It's got a great view.  It has some really great steak, and wonderful service.  It's Atlanta's Captial Grille.

Have the lamb chops at the Capital Grille
Have dinner there.  Start with the Lobster and Crab Cakes.  The sweet corn relish is divine.   Then, have the lamb chops as an entree.  Capital Grille is a steak place, but these are the best chops I've been able to find in town.  They're huge too!  Maybe share with your date.  Always a good idea.  Pair it all with a nice big red.  They have a huge wine list.  Ask for a recommendation.  I'd go with a cab.  $50 per person.  Enjoy!
