Back in December, I brought you info on an event that I was considering going to, barring some pretty modest requests getting fulfilled. It was the Atlanta Brunch Festival and we knew very little about it outside of the date (March 5, 2016) and the location (Atlanta, duh).
Upon seeing my piece, I was contacted by the festival itself regarding my requests which included (but not limited to) a strict dress code of Patagonia Baggies and oversized longsleeve pocket tees, every Victoria’s Secret Angel, and musical guest Kid Rock ft. Justin Bieber & Ellie Goulding. He stated:
Hey Will, I saw your post and demands about our upcoming Brunch Festival. Unfortunately, the demands are going to be a bit tough to meet, but I am happy to add you to our media list to receive credentials for the event.
Let me know if this works for you, and I’ll add you to the list. I send out periodic media advisories about our events, and our only requirement for media credentials is that you enjoy the event and hopefully write nice things about us. (media passes are just good for media though, no plus 1s or friends can be added)
Thanks again, and we hope to see you soon, Mike
Despite his lack of effort to meet my demands, the media pass did strike my interest. But now? They’ve launched a full-blown website and I’m even more intrigued.
The festival is 21+, which is essential because if I’m rolling with a deep crew, I can’t have them hitting on any underage broads. That’s just not a good look. And because we’ll obviously be getting the VIP passes, we get early access to the event which will go from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., which is perfect as I shouldn’t be drinking beyond five o’clock with my potential hangover anyway.
The event also boasts “no kids, no babies, no pets.” Now, I’m good with no kids and babies. Everyone knows I don’t brunch with kids. That’s just a given. But no pets? So you’re telling me that I’m supposed to go to an outdoor brunch festival where I can sip on everything from bloodies to mimosas to beers, but I can’t pet some pooches while doing so? Give me a break. I’m going to have to have my people talk to their people.
Luckily for me, they still haven’t announced a musical guest, which means Kid Rock and Ellie Goulding are still in play.
For all the info, head over to Atlanta Brunch Festival. More info to come on whether or not I’ll be there dominating. In the mean time, I am looking for accomodations. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a free king size bed, 1,000 thread count sheets, and a Springer Spaniel I can pass out next to. .
