Woofs – the place where sports and LGBT fans collide for cocktails – celebrated its 15th anniversary on Wednesday with an invitation-only party that was standing room only.
The sports bar found its home in a 1,900-square-foot space in a retail center at the intersection of Lindbergh Drive and Piedmont Road in 2002.
