Belgian THIRSTday – World Cup After Party | 08/02/2018


They already had a big party in Brussels, but Atlanta will also celebrate!  beATL’s next THIRSTday – August 2nd, from 7 pm – will be exceptionally rebranded as the “World Cup After Party”!  For the first time in history, our Red Devils became 3rd in a World Cup and we want to thank them you for:

  • Coming back from 0-2 against Japan
  • Defeating Brazil
  • Defeating England…. Twice!
  • Giving us such nice soccer and suspense (maybe a little too much suspense?)
  • Uniting the Belgians and making us proud to be Belgian

Where is the party? Waar is da feestje? Où est la fête?  At Fado Buckhead of course! The place where we watched all the games!   As a thank you for being their favorite World Cup fans, Fado is offering free snacks, a $5.00 Duvel special and 20% off the food tab.

Let’s meet at Fado Buckhead one more time and celebrate our historic 3rd place win. Feel free to wear your colors! Let’s celebrate! We are Belgium!

Please RSVP as Fado needs to know the headcount for the snack platters.
