You ever come home on a Friday night, and just go “damn, I really don’t want to spend another weekend catching up on work, doing laundry, and cleaning the kitchen?” Well never fear, Atlanta Young Dems’ regular old Julie McCoy is here to save you from a weekend of Lysol and Scrubbing Bubbles.
Tonight! – Join the users of Donkey/Elephant for what has become a weekly tradition, the Friday night happy hour.
Tonight, we are taking this informal Happy Hour tradition over to Decatur for a night of Pool, Foosball, Table Shuffleboard, and Darts at Twains
Location: Twains, 211 E Trinity Pl, Decatur, 30030
But don’t stay out too late! Saturday is jam-packed from sunrise to way after sunset with lobbying, education, and of course partying (How can you not party on Cinqo de Mayo?!?)
9am – Peachtree Corridor Lobbying for Affordable Housing
Tomorrow the Peachtree Corridor task force will be meeting at Atlanta City Council chambers to discuss development along Peachtree Road. While we are all excited about making Peachtree Road a true destination street for tourists and residents alike, many of us feel strongly about making sure affordable housing for all is included in the development plans. Join us as we partner up with our friends in the affordable housing community and make sure our voices are heard!

Join our tireless Campaigns Chair, Allison, for her first committee meeting of the year. She has tons of plans for future training, helping out with the 10th district race, and of course the 2008 election season!
