Get Memorial Day Weekend Started Off Right With a Fish Fry and Anniversary Bash at The Optimist
The Optimist is celebrating two biggies -- its one-year anniversary and Memorial Day -- on one party-perfect day, Saturday, May 25. The polished fish camp and oyster bar is hosting a fish fry beginning at 1 p.m. Keyboardist Ben Tanner of the Grammy-nominated Alabama Shakes will perform with bands Belle Adaire and The Bear starting at 4 p.m. The year has sailed by with regatta speed since Ford Fry opened The Optimist to give Atlantans the ocean edge they crave. The fresh catches and cool tunes will help cure any landlocked woes.
