Come one, come all, football season is finally back! In true dirty bird fashion, the Atlanta Falcons are ready to march over the New Orleans Saints at the Georgia Dome regular season opener on Sunday, September 8. As the Falcons kick off at 1 p.m., Atkins Park Restaurant & Bar in Virginia-Highland fields an official season opener of its own -- tailgate season. For some, this is the best part of all. They'll fire up the Big Green Egg (it is slightly football shaped) to go with beer features from SweetWater Brewing Company. Rise up and buy raffle tickets for a chance to win some of the more than $1000 in cash and prizes. Cornholers, Cornhole ATL is hosting a tournament after the football game ends. Registration opens at halftime and costs $30 per team, which includes your first pint of SweetWater beer and one raffle ticket. No matter which team conquers the Georgia Dome turf, the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society scores all tailgate party raffle and cornhole proceeds! Sounds like a victory to us, so make it yours too and plan to join in all the football fun.
