The jocks of the Atlanta Rainbow Trout love a good splash in the pool, but they also enjoy a cocktail and fundraiser, as they showed at Ten on Saturday during their sunny, skimpy margarita bust.
Speedo-clad swimmers served $20 all-you-can-drink margs and $2 Jell-O shots all sunny afternoon long to raise money for Atlanta’s premier LGBTA aquatics club.
The group’s history goes back to 1995, with events popping up whether it’s holiday time (and time, and time again), the beginning of the year or smack dab in the middle of spring.
