The Andersonville spot ( which might require a little know-how just to enter ) enthralls guests with bar, table and stage magic in addition to cool drinks and impressive ulinary fare. ( Also, check out David Parr's Cabinet of Curiosities every Wednesday at the venue, and there are also family-friendly shows on Sunday afternoons. )

—Revealing Selves: Transgender Portraits from Argentina: In this gorgeous book ( published in the United States by The New Press ), photographer Kike Arnal collaborates with individuals in Argentinian transgender communities, documenting their everyday lives with intimate black-and-white images.
