City Council says drink up for Atlanta Pride, y’all!

imageRest up, Pride-goers. You’ve got two and a half extra hours to drink this weekend, thanks to Alex Wan and his City Council colleagues. Just consider it an addendum to their Eagle raid apology.

Last month, the City Council quietly approved Wan’s (photo) proposal to extend last call on Pride Sunday, pushing it from the usual midnight to 2:30 a.m. on Monday. After that, you’ve got a half-hour to clear your rainbow-clad self out of the bar and return safely home (or to wherever Mr. Right Now takes you.) Take that, Peggy Denby.

Maybe Wan will invite Mayor Kasim Reed out for a cocktail during the extended hours. It’s that bromance thing, after all.
