Blake’s pulls all stops on Halloween mayhem

Add this share

If you’re gay in Atlanta, and you are, you know that one of the sure bets for awesome Halloween costumes and sky-high prizes is Blake’s on the Park. This year didn’t disappoint.

With a promise to throw open its doors to all comers and sling the drinks like tomorrow’s Day of the Dead, the bar stayed true to its annual traditions: Boys, booze and beats. Some $2,000 in cash and prizes were awards for the scary, funny, crazy costume queens who matched the bar’s excitement level in their looks.
