We did this in the fall, and it was a ton of fun. I'm glad it's back for the spring.
When you RSVP, state whether you got the regular or the VIP admission.
Carpool or taxi from my place in Smyrna.  People are welcome to crash at my place for a few hours afterwards.

**Keep in mind that this is a huge event.  So it may be difficult to find each other and stick together.  I'll have my phone on me, but there's no guarantee that'll be able to respond quickly, especially as the day go as on.**

If you missed LivingSocial's Buckhead Beer and Wine Festival last fall, never fear: We're back at it again this spring with the kick-off to our national Beerfest tour! With twice as much to indulge in from the beverage department, and even more unique entertainment, this is sure to be one of the season's best events.

Head to Chastain Park on March 23 to enjoy live music from '80s tribute band Girlz Girlz Girlz and FIT Radio DJs. While the park is open to the public to enjoy the entertainment, those 21 and over who'd like to partake in the festivities should grab a ticket. Pay $25 for one general admission ticket (the price will increase as the event date gets closer), or pay $45 for a VIP ticket, and receive a tasting glass to enjoy unlimited samples of more than 100 beers and wines. Munchies from some of Atlanta's best food trucks will also be available for purchase, so you can keep well-nourished as you partake in backyard lawn games and activities. Check out the interactive art experience from Georgia Foundation for Public Spaces and hang out in the brand new two-story Budweiser lounge, complete with six flat screen TVs for a basketball viewing party. Basically, this one festival you won't want to miss... again.

      Is it too late for me to get in on this cab?

      March 22, 2013

  • Kelsey Lynn M.

    I'm sick and can't go anymore. Anyone still need a ticket? I'm selling mine for $25

    Is this at least covered for when it's pouring down rain?

    March 22, 2013

    • Ben B.

      No where to hide. Enjoy the rain crammed next to others under a beer tent, lol. We stayed at the wine tents last year when it rained.

      March 22, 2013

    • Lee H

      like Ben said, the drink servers are covered, so bring an umbrella, or prepare to be get really friendly with everyone else :)

    for anyone that is driving there there is no parking inch es stay in and instead they are offering a free shuttle service from tower Plaza but it is 5 dollars to park there. I am volunteering for the first shift from 11:30 to 230 at the Pyramid tent, I hope to have some of you stop by while I am working...Lee I will text you once I am done with my shift!

    March 21, 2013

    • Sarah K.

      No parking @ chastain whatsoever*... using voice text lol

    Because of the nature of this event, it'll be very difficult to keep track of people. Therefore, I won't be keeping attendance at this event. If you'd like to try and find the group, my number is[masked]

    I will also be taking the cab. Where are we meeting in Smyrna to hop into a cab?

    March 18, 2013

    • Lee H

      We'll be meeting at my apartment in Smyrna. I'll email the address out either Thursday or Friday. For a frame of reference, it's on cobb parkway, near windy hill road

      March 18, 2013

  • Kelsey Lynn M.

    Cab please

    March 17, 2013

  • Lee H

    I hope everyone had an awesome St. Patrick's Day, and is ready to continue the festivities this coming weekend!

    As of right now I only have 4 people for taking a cab from Smyrna (myself, Ben, Kristin, and Gemma), so I will only be reserving one cab for us. If you would also like to join us , please reply to this post. The cost should be $15-$20 round trip, per person.

    If you don't want to take a cab, carpooling is highly recommended. Parking can get scarce, and you will most likely have to pay for it.

    I just got recruited to work the 1st shift as a pourer! If anyone else would like to join me, I'll send you the signup form!

    March 13, 2013

    • Dan N.

      How long is the shift for? Any perks for being a volunteer?

      March 13, 2013

  • Valerie B

    Sadly, no =(

    March 12, 2013

  • Lee H

    We're just over 2 weeks from the event, so post here if you're interested in either a) sharing a taxi, or b) carpooling. I'll help organize the taxi(s) from Smyrna, if someone else will take charge of the carpool.

    February 28, 2013

    • Sarah K.

      I'm down with carpooling...my car is a coupe but can comfortably fit myself + 4 others, plus I get great gas mileage. We can meet pretty much anywhere...I live just off the Towne Lake exit on 575, but if there is a closer location I'd be fine with that. Contributions would be greatly appreciated :) will post my # closer to the date!

  • Kelsey Lynn M.

    How much is that taxi gonna be? That's far...

    February 28, 2013

    • Lee H

      I live less than 10 miles from Chastain Park. At $2/mile + $2.5 pick up fee, we're looking at about $45 round trip (probably less than that). If 3 people split a cab, it's about $15 round trip per person.

    Is there anyway to get to and from this event from kennesaw besides taking a taxi cause that would be very expensive?

    February 15, 2013

    • Lee H

      Cobb County Transit will goes up to Kennesaw, and can get you to MARTA.

      February 15, 2013

    • Lee H

      Alternatively, my place is less than 10 miles from the location, so it'd be a comparatively inexpensive cab ride, especially if we got a bunch of people together
