The beATL Queens invite you to their very first beATL-Time … Are you ready to get up close and personal with all the art, architecture and history that Atlanta has to offer?
Let’s start with a Clue-Chase on the Eastside Trail of the famous and fabulous Beltine. This scavenger hunt walking adventure is an entertaining way not only to discover the (paved) corridor but also to admire the Art on the Atlanta BeltLine, now the largest temporary public art exhibition in the southeast, returning for its fifth year and featuring nearly 100 works of visual and performing art through November 15.
Solo or as a team (we recommend two solvers per team for competitive endeavors), solve clues and complete (easy) challenges from the Old Fourth Ward Skate Park to Parish, the Brasserie and Neighborhood Café where we will invigorate with a well deserved lunch or brunch depending of your mood.
It will then be time to submit your completed Scavenger Hunt Booklet. The winner is determined by the number of points earned by solving clues. As we expect many winners, some additional tricky questions have been added to make it more exciting. The looser is probably still trying to find the restaurant ….
Meet the Queens at 10.30 am on Sunday September 21st, 2014. The Clue-Chase ATL is perfect for the whole family, your friends and neighbors.
Please do RSVP before 9/18 for three obvious reasons:
- we need to know how many booklets to print
- how many will stay for lunch. Parish is excessively popular and in order to sit relatively close to each other, we must give them a head-count no later than the Thursday before our event.
- the event is rain or shine but in the unlikely event we do have to cancel the event, we want to be able to advice you ASAP

Two of the three original mill buildings remain today. Carroll Street Cafe is a popular venue for a bite.
