1. Billy Reid’s new D.C. spot. The South’s arbiter of style for menswear, Billy Reid, expands his reach to the District with a new boutique in Georgetown. The shop is chock-full of Reid classics such as neutral-hued dress shirts, casually luxe pants, and leather goods for him and her. This is the 10th store for the CFDA award winner (including a discount shop at Silver Sands Premium Outlet in Destin… Shhhhh).

2. A Bonnaroo bus. We just got word that the Nashville visitor’s bureau and Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival have teamed up to start offering shuttle services from Music City to the festival grounds in Manchester, Tennessee this year. Great news for those who want the music experience without having to commit to the multi-day camping trip. Starting at $113, the packaged deals include day passes to the festival and transportation with multiple departure times each day.

3. Atlanta’s barbecued birthday bash. Located in the Virginia-Highland neighborhood in Atlanta, popular barbecue joint D.B.A. celebrates its fourth year with a weeklong celebration kicking off today. This week patrons enjoy special menu items such as bacon-wrapped hot dogs, drink specials, live blues music, and a screening The Big Lebowski with free bacon given to those who arrive dressed like cast members.

4. Richmond’s food festival. The Old Dominion’s rising culinary scene is on full display during its Broad Appetit tasting event on West Broad Street Sunday, June 2. From 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., 60 of the area’s best restaurants serve up mini versions of some of its best dishes for just $3 a pop. Add $5 and you get a tasting glass to sample Virginia-made beers. Stretchy pants welcome.

5. The Georgia Museum’s fashion exhibit. On Saturday, June 1, the Georgia Museum of Art at the University of Georgia opens its first fashion-centric show, an ode to style icon Ann Taylor—not the retail brand. Fashion Independent: The Original Style of Ann Bonfoey Taylor showcases wardrobe pieces and timeless images of the pilot, sportswoman and couture collector who defined mid-century elegance. The exhibit runs through September 14, and includes pieces from famed designers such as Balenciaga, Hermès, and Givenchy.
