MIDTOWN RA Sushi is serving a watermelon-kiwi special throughout the month of June. Its watermelon kiwi shrimp features oranges and lychee in addition to the obvious, and its melon-kiwi-tini is made with Monin watermelon, Svedka Citron, Shochu and a splash of citrus soda, muddled and garnished with a slice of watermelon and one of kiwi. The pairing costs $18. [EaterWire]

BUCKHEADGordon Biersch rolled out a new limited-edition 750 ml “Big Beer” program. The Imperial Pilsner Brau (IPB) 750ml “big bottle” is the first in a series of five beers to be released throughout 2012, each of which will have a production of t 4,000 cases or less. The 6.5 percent alcohol Imperial Pilsner Brau is said to emphasize the “noble hops” from central Europe. It is unfiltered and naturally carbonated.

SANDY SPRINGSFood 101 is getting creative with its new weeknight drink specials. There’s “Sustainable Sips Mondays,” which focuses on cocktails made with organic liquors and served for $6; “Twiggy Tuesdays” with Skinny Girl margaritas and low-cal cosmos selling for $6; and Three’s Company Thursdays, featuring martinis, mojitos and margaritas for $5 each. If you’re wondering what happened to Wednesday, the marketing team must have gotten a bit lazy, as we’ve all heard about Wine Down Wednesdays before. [EaterWire]
