The Cinco de Mayo blowout at Las Margaritas is an annual treat for queer Atlanta, and this year had a sporty feel to amp things up a bit.
The party began in the early afternoon with drink specials, a live band, a DJ and a mechanical bull.
The night ended with an Atlanta United watch party on the big screen hosted by All Stripes, the LGBTQ fan group for the reigning MLS Cup champs. It was a celebratory way to end the night as United took out Sporting K.C. 3 to 0.
Hotlanta Softball League jocks also held an event at Las Margaritas that day as well.
