Never let a little rain get in the way of good beer for a good cause. And never, ever let weather keep you from a kiki. That was the mantra at the Let’s Have A Kiki Beer Bust benefiting the AIDS Walk.
Of course, the gays love a beer bust and the annual AIDS Walk Atlanta, but there was even more to draw them to Frogs Cantina on Sunday. Named for the Scissor Sisters hit about partying, the Let’s Have A Kiki event didn’t just offer bottomless cups of Victoria Draft. It offered them at $5 to anyone wearing red.
Guests who just had to stand out in a different color paid only $8, and everyone had a chance for raffle prizes and Jell-O shots. Proceeds from all of it went to AIDS Walk Atlanta & 5K Run, which takes place in Piedmont Park on Sunday, Oct. 21.
