LSU Member & Fans,
Over the last several years, many of you made the drive to Lake Allatoona to celebrate our annual crawfish boil and come together as ‘Tiger’ fans. It was a great venue that provided us with many ideal resources to host an eventful adult and youth LSU experience for our members, LSU fans and sponsors. However, the geographical location was a challenge for the high percentage of those living and working in the Atlanta area which, over time, contributed to lower than expected attendance. This is our largest Chapter event each year and we strive to make improvements in the experience for our members, LSU fans and sponsors, as well as, reach our objectives in growing our membership and raising scholarship funds. With that said, we have an exciting announcement….
The LSU Atlanta Alumni Chapter 2014 Crawfish Boil will be hosted at Park Tavern! Park Tavern is a fantastic city center location that offers the beautiful Piedmont Park as a destination for outdoor exercise and family fun. We will enjoy a portion of the Piedmont Garden tent for indoor seating and dedicated cash bar, along with, a private outdoor area referred to as the ‘Meadows’ for additional tables. Park Tavern is an ideal location to reach our potential in achieving our goals for this event and is also a popular Atlanta event venue. Along with our new location, comes a new event day and time frame this year….Park Tavern books up fast! Availability was limited and we are extremely thrilled that we were able to secure an early May date for Sunday May 4th from 2p-7p.
Park Tavern hosts stellar events throughout the year and one of them being the Unplugged in the Park music series. These are FREE concerts hosted on Sunday beginning in the spring and the first one will kick off on our event day at 7pm! That’s right…a Sunday afternoon complete with crawfish and a concert, just how they do it in Baton Rouge! The musical act will be Blair Crimmins & The Hookers.
Here are a few important event details to keep in mind in your planning for that day:
Parking is available in the Park Tavern lot for $5.00
Cash bar – no alcoholic beverages will be allowed in
Piedmont Park will NOT allow pop-up tents
We hope you can join us and look forward to seeing you there!
