With six bars participating, the event will take place from 4 – 11 p.m. and will include live music, DJs, a costume contest, scavenger hunt, prizes and an after party. The atmosphere will be more like a festival, allowing for participants to set their own pace and visit each bar at their leisure, staying as long as they like while enjoying a complimentary drink. The after party will take place at Andrew’s Upstairs at 9 p.m. with Atlanta’s premier 80s tribute band, 80′s R Us.
