Atlanta Pride drunks rejoice: Last call extended

Add this share

Alex Wan may not want you to smoke at Atlanta Pride, but he’s OK with you drinking and bar-hopping for a few extra hours during an extended last call on Pride Sunday (and early Monday morning).

Wan (photo), along with Atlanta City Council colleague Carla Smith, helped shepherd an annual rite of passage for the city’s annual Pride celebration in October: Extending last call from midnight Sunday, Oct. 14 to 2:30 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 15.

The measure passed by consent during the City Council meeting on Tuesday, meaning you get more than two additional hours to cocktail your way through Pride after a day of parading through Midtown and Piedmont Park in your rainbow-colored onesie.

Once last call comes at 2:30 a.m., you’ve got a half-hour to collect yourself and get home. Safely.

Happy Pride! Now don’t get the blowjob cancer.
