D.C. → Atlanta
My last trip, in D.C. ended up being a chilly one so I decided it’s finally time to fly south for winter and enter hibernation mode. This trip has me staying in the eastern time zone while heading to Atlanta Georgia where Falcons fans are still recovering for their teams slip up in the Super Bowl. Fortunately for me the city was still in good spirits and treated me with their staple southern hospitality. I also had the chance to get a number of 360 tours and even sit down with a couple of our partners to learn a little more about what it’s like to host an event.
Monday Night Brewing
If clever craft beer names is your thing (let’s be real, it is) then Monday Night Brewing is the place to have your next corporate event. They feature a lineup of 6 house beers including Nerd Alert and Slap Fight, it doesn’t get any better than that! Not only did I get a chance to set them up with a 360 tour, which you can check out here, but I was also able to sit down with their events director Carlen for a chat. You can listen in on the chat and learn more about the Monday Night Brewing experience here.
The United States has held the Olympics 8 times throughout history (4 summer, 4 winter), the last summer city being Atlanta in 1996. Olympic Centennial Park was built to help serve as a central gathering location for spectators, and still today hosts millions of visitors each year, like me. The park has a beautiful olympic ring fountain and a nice view of the city.Located in the heart of downtown Atlanta, it’s a must visit while in town.
The Blind Pig Parlour Bar
It was time to mix things up and get out and experience Atlanta nightlife. Of course I had to stop by my friends at The Blind Pig Parlour Bar for some live music and delicious eats. The space has a very vintage blues vibe set up by the decor which comes from all over Atlanta. You can walk through the space in a virtual 360 tour here and learn more about the venue by watching my sit down with bartender Jordan here.
College Football HOF
Though my college (UIC) doesn’t have a football team, I’m still a big fan of the sport and couldn’t make a trip to Atlanta without visiting the newly relocated College Football Hall of Fame. The museum features tons of memorable from historic moments of both the recent and distant past. I also had a chance to put my skills to the test on their indoor field and let’s just say you won’t be seeing me in an NFL uniform anytime soon!
Of course no trip can ever be completed without an educational photoshoot, so for this I stopped by the Museum of Design Atlanta, MODA. Of all the museums I’ve visited, and trust me there have been a lot, this has to be the most unique. They feature a different theme every 6 months to showcase a piece of design that has the ability to change the world. The current feature is all about efficiently growing healthy food in our homes. You can walk through the museum here, but this is one place you truly need to experience in person, and lucky for you, you can book on Kapow.com
Next Stop: Philadelphia
I’ve been loving life out east and I’m not quite ready to head back home to Chicago, so next up I’ll be heading to Philadelphia for some more 360 tours. Be sure to check back to discover the Philly hot spots and following along while I go on a cheesesteak tasting tour, it’s going to be delicious! Be sure to visit Kapow.com for all of your event needs.
