Atlanta Pride is descending on the city this weekend in and around Piedmont Park, and you’ll need plenty of sustenance to keep up with the myriad events, marches, parades and shows. Here, a few places where you might just be able to catch a glimpse of the parade while you eat (or where to find food after the main event):
Livingston Restaurant + Bar: If you’re planning on watching the Pride Parade on Oct. 9, this is the place to be. Kicking off at 11 a.m., the restaurant’s Pride party features food, a dance party and views of the parade. There’s no cover to get into the party, but the brunch buffet is $28, or pay $75 for the buffet, terrace seating during the parade, three-hour parking, a mimosa, Bloody Mary or julep (after 12:30 p.m., of course) and the dance party. Make reservations by emailing email@example.com.
