Bottomless wine simply tastes better when you're surrounded by picturesque views. Mark your calendars, because the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta is supplying both for just one special night next month. Their huge after-hours cocktail party is the perfect excuse to dress up extravagantly and hit downtown for a boozy evening surrounded by some new under-the-sea friends.
Aqua Vino is an annual celebration put on by the Georgia Aquarium that's coming back for its 14th year in a row. It's insanely popular, likely for the 150+ different types of wine you can sample, or because the event proceeds are going towards some real-life conservation efforts.
Specifically, this year's funds are going towards rehabilitating the ever so adorable African penguins, research and promoting awareness for whale sharks (who are now an endangered species) and overall efforts to rescue the most vulnerable aquatic populations. There's no reason to feel bad about your partying because it's all for an incredible cause.
In addition to filling up on wine, you can sample food from over 40 local Atlanta restaurants. All tastings are included in the ticket package, so it's guilt-free eating and drinking.
A party wouldn't be complete without any music, and there's nothing better than the live music scene in this city. After a few glasses of wine, you'll be grooving to the beats provided by some local musicians.
There will be photo booths, live auctions, and after-hours viewings of some of the most majestic creatures in the world. VIP guests even get a behind-the-scenes tour of some exclusive exhibits. Essentially, Aqua Vino is the epitome of grown-folks fun.
This is also a 21 and up event with cocktail attire, so it's comparable to the adult prom of your dreams. Dust off your suits and formal dresses because this is the ultimate occasion to get dolled up.
If museums plus booze are totally your thing, Fernbank After Dark is another 21+ after-hours party that never disappoints.
