Each year, near the start of fall, the Georgia Aquarium hosts Aqua Vino, one of the biggest events of the year. The annual event is held to help in raising funds for the Georgia Aquarium’s animal research and conservation effort. I had the opportunity to attend Aqua Vino this year, which was hosted by television personality Alton Brown, and I have to tell you, it’s quite the place to be if you’re a food or wine lover. And if you’re both, then consider Aqua Vino a little slice of heaven.
The Georgia Aquarium, one of the largest aquariums in the world, already makes for a magical venue. Combine the ambiance of the aquarium with a live jazz band, perfectly-placed decor, and it kinda feels like you’ve been transported to a place a tad more exotic than the city of Atlanta. I enjoyed quite a few sips and bites during Aqua Vino, and despite being the beer, wine, and cocktail lover that I am, I have to say that one of my favorites came in cupcake form thanks to Georgetown Cupcakes.
And because I was a tad busy sipping on the finest of wines and munching on the tastiest cuisine Atlanta has to offer, I didn’t snap too many pictures. Thankfully though, I did get my hands on a few pictures, courtesy of the Georgia Aquarium. Check ’em out below.
