Ready, set, go! Before gay Atlanta can have a charity day of games flashing back to childhood Field Day retreats, we have to have a beer bust. Hence, the Atlanta Field Day Beer Blast took over Cowtippers on Saturday.
Supporters of the main event, which brings back sack races, egg tosses and the like to benefit Jerusalem House and Camp Twin Lakes, helped raise awareness and funds by raising a glass – or two, or three. They packed the Cowtippers patio for $10 bottomless beer, raffles and music by DJ Todd Skelton.
Speaking of making a day of it, Atlanta Field Day 2012 goes down outside at Westminster Presbyterian Church on Sept. 15.
