Fried Food Fest: The Vortex's 15th Anniversary

For a place celebrating 15 years of debauchery and decadence, the Saturday night celebration was a little low key. Me and the missus walked to the Peachtree location of the Atlanta bar/local institution to part take in some of the free food offered up. Trays of fried things, including pickles, were up for grabs. And the cake from Publix was pretty damn good. Along with some additional grub that we bought, I picked up an anniversary t-shirt.

After food, we hit the bar's Laughing Skull Lounge and heard the irreverent lounge stylings of King Sized. The lounge cover of a disco song that I forgot was the highlight of the show. But the cruise ship themed keyboard stand had me feeling like I was back at dry dock, in a good way. Again the camera was forgotten.

The Laughing Skull Lounge is home to the Dames Aflame which offers Boozer Doodle, the most interesting figure drawing class I've heard about.

How can you go wrong with nude drawing classes at a bar? Hope the kids at local art schools are taking advantage of this education.

That's because this was at the Peachtree Vortex.
