Blake's celebrated Atlanta Pride with a packed bar, ablicious bartenders, an R&B sensation, drag queens, a gay funnyman and DJs galore.
When we stopped by on Saturday, the Midtown mainstay was filling up as DJ Mike Pope was warming them up with his beats. Later, R&B singer Frenchie Davis returned to Atlanta and to love on her gays and perform. She's no stranger to gay Atlanta and its big gay parties.
Blake's also offered up gay actor and comedian Leslie Jordan on Thursday and again on Friday for a meet-and-greet. He just loves his Atlanta gays. On Sunday, DJ Ed Bailey rocked a post-Pride crowd into its Monday morning regrets.
Davis, like the crowd, loved it.
