How do you turn a ho-hum Halloween into a homo Halloween? Just add queers! A penchant for costuming among local queers never lets a weeknight get in the way of guaranteed fun at Atlanta gay bars, and we have your hookup to the best of them.
Of course, we're already sharing photos of those amazing weekend costumes with more to come, but there are still plenty of Wednesday tricks and treats as well.
One of the venues listed below, Blake's, was in the Top 10 Halloween destinations in the whole city last year. Lyft tallied up rides to Halloween destinations across Atlanta, and Blake's was the only LGBTQ event to make the cut.
Well, if you need disco fries after the party, Waffle House is on Lyft's Top 10 list as well.
Get your costume together and plan your outings with our picks for the best queer bets on your Halloween to-do list. Weight your options, and click on the event names for more info.
