Coney Island Mermaid Festival

Black Market Bar & Grill- 5 Points South presents the Coney Island Mermaid Festival hosted by the fabulous Jenna Sayqua with live performances by the High Fidelics! There'll be local artists and vendors set up on our patio along with our DUNKING BOOTH (that our very own George Cowgill has agreed to sit in for one hour)! And be sure to dress up in your FINEST MERMAID ATTIRE because there's going to be a costume contest for prizes too! If that isn't enough to get you excited, we must also mention that this is a charity event benefiting the Cahaba River Society! You'll have the chance to make a donation at the door OR you can order off our special Coney Island food and drink menu (a portion of the money from the items you buy will be donated to the charity)! So join us for a night of costumes, music, dancing, corn dogs, cotton candy, and specialty drinks courtesy of UV Vodka! Only $5/door. 8pm.

    Hello guys, I am new in town from Portland, Oregon. This event sounds crazy fun... and a place to possibly find models for my cosplay art galleries?
