Chai Pani's One Year Anniversary Party: An Indian Street Food Fest
406 W Ponce de Leon Ave. (Decatur)
It's hard to believe that we've been indulging in Chai Pani's Indian Street food fare for an entire year now, but you know what they say – time flies when you're having fun. Raise a lime rickey to them at this first year fête amidst a traditional Indian entertainment, and of course, a bevy of savory bites. (Sounds like a hefty dose-a goodness to us.)

Highfalutin' chefs and neon lights? That's a thing of the past at the W Midtown. Their new restaurant focus, TRACE, is all about locally sourced, high-quality eats. (Food that you can trace back to it source, shall we say?) See the space, eat the eats, and drink the libations before the restaurant opens their doors at this exclusive first-look event.

The Coca-Cola Summer Film Festival: Field of Dreams
The Fox Theatre, 660 Peachtree St. (Downtown)
Nowadays we know the Fox Theatre as Atlanta's premiere destination for live entertainment, but once a year Coca-Cola and the Fox team up to pay homage to the auditorium's original purpose: the silver screen. First up to bat this season? None other than the 1989 Kevin Costner classic, Field of Dreams. To sweeten the deal – the Braves' organist, Matthew Kaminski, will be behind the pipes of Mighty Mo the organ preceding the show. How's that for a home run?
