Huzzah!  We’re pumped to tell you about a new program designed to introduce Atlanta’s young professionals to the history of Atlanta… We think the name says it all – Party With the Past: Free History, Cold Beer. This free history series will take place at different historically significant spots all around the ATL. Every Party With the Past features a free history lesson from a guest speaker, a cash bar, food for purchase, and kick-awesome activities and prizes.
