If you’re gay in Atlanta, you know that Blake’s on the Park is one of the sure bets for cute gay boys every night. That made it a must-stop on New Year’s Eve. Well that, and all the cash and prizes.

The bar’s annual Pennies From Heaven balloon drop sent patrons scrambling in the opening minutes of the New Year, and it contained way more than just pennies. The video countdown to 2015 beforehand came courtesy DJ Bill Berdeaux.
