Atkins ParkOn Sunday, July 25, both locations of Atkins Park Tavern are getting into the holiday spirit a little early with the restaurants’ annual “Christmas in July” celebration sponsored by Samuel Adams and Jägermeister.

Santa and the Jägerettes will be at both locations all day to pass out fun giveaways.  At the Virginia-Highland location, Atlantans can forget about the sultry summer weather with cool Jäger snow cones, delicious Christmas cookies and a DJ spinning tunes all day long.  The Smyrna location’s “Christmas in July” party includes live music from Lost City , sweet drink specials and Christmas cookies.

The party starts at 9 p.m. at both locations. Atkins Park has two Atlanta-area locations: Virginia-Highland at 794 N Highland Avenue Northeast; 404-876-7249 and Smyrna at 2840 Atlanta Road Southeast; 770-435-1887. www.atkinspark.com
