We are so excited Pretty Southern has been invited to cover Taste of Atlanta again this year. This is the best opportunity to experience more than 80 of Atlanta’s premier restaurants. For those of y’all not on the media list, there are a few ways to get access into the events beginning Friday, Oct. 5, through Sunday, Oct. 8. The first option is to purchase a Scoutmob Hand-Picked All Access pass for #TasteofATL. The Taste of Atlanta team has hooked up a pretty decent package deal for 50% off tickets for both Friday AND Sunday.
The all-inclusive Friday night Big Grill kick-off event will feature live music from Yacht Rock Schooner, cold beer, wine, American Spirit Whiskey cocktails and tastings from some of the city’s best chefs. Ford Fry (JCT, The Optimist, No. 246) Kevin Rathbun (Rathbun’s, Rathbun Steak) and Jay Swift (4th & Swift) will be lighting it up at Grills Gone Wild. Scoutmob has two ticket options:
$60: 1 Friday Night Big Grill Ticket + 1 Taste of Atlanta general admission ticket for Sunday
$75: 1 VIP Friday Night Big Grill Ticket + 1 Taste of Atlanta general admission ticket for Sunday. It’s the same deal as above except entry to the Big Grill begins at 6:30 p.m. for more chef-mingling time.
If y’all only want to go for one day of the event, check out Taste of Atlanta’s website for more details. Friday night general admission is $60 and goes from 7:30 – 10:30 p.m. However, with an upgrade for only $15 more to VIP status gets y’all in at 6:30 and more tasting tickets. Saturday and Sunday all-day passes general admission is only $25 and VIP is $75.
Each Taste of ATL diner receives Taste Coupons which are used to purchase food from participating restaurants. Menu items are valued at 1, 2 or 3 taste coupons. A General Admission ticket includes 10 Taste Coupons, and the VIP Ticket includes 15 Taste Coupons. Additional taste coupons can be purchased: 10 taste coupons for $10 or 20 coupons for $20.
So why is VIP so very important? VIP is a MUST for those of you who want access to the Wine+Beer+Cocktail Experience. It’s also one of the only areas at the event to cool off under the massive tent lined with bars pouring libations. Plus, the first 300 VIP ticket holders each day receive a Taste of Atlanta gift bag filled with special goodies.
