    So i hope everyone is planning to use your tickets for this event! it's been sold out for a LONG time....how many will want to go to eat first at Six Feet Under? since we have 8:00 and 8:15 tickets i think if we try to meet at 6:00 at the restaurant we should have plenty of time. i'll call ahead for seating if i can get a head count. (and i just put sexfeetunder.com in the search bar at work ugghhh lol) http://sixfeetunderatlanta.com/...­

    $23.00 to see tombstones?

    • Kathy B

      Hi Vera. In this case we do not have a discounted rate for a large group. The way meet up works is, if one of the group members suggests a meet up and 2 other members respond with a yes, it automatically becomes a meet up. This event started this same way, and individuals purchased tickets online as individuals. There will not be a group rate for this event.

    Tomestones are just the backdrop for all the stories and history of Atlanta you'll hear. Besides they are cool tombstones.

    Can we carpool? Its a distance and not an area you should frequent alone at night.

    July 17

    • Joan T.

      we can carpool if it works and the area is fine at night....it's always very crowded with people and they have several parking lots right across from the venue for this event.
