Ah, autumn—the leaves are changing color, the scent of pumpkin spice is wafting in the air... and the promise of bloody zombie gore is just on the horizon. Yup, Rick Grimes & Co. are about to be back in action on AMC. And if you, like the vast majority of Atlantans, have diligently followed our hometown heroes through their trials and tribulations in the prison and in even creepier Woodbury, you're probably a tiny bit intrigued to see what's next for the last remaining vestiges of civilization. (Or maybe you just get a kick out of IDing which Atlanta location is being infested/exploded/unwisely used as a hideout onscreen.) Either way, we've been bitten by the post-apocalyptic fever. If you, like us, are itching to see what's in store for our zombie-slaying heroes — and maybe thirsting for a cocktail or two — go ahead and mark your calendars. We have the cure for your walker bloodlust, and it comes with booze.
On October 13, we're hosting a drop-dead awesome Walking Dead Premiere viewing party at (where else?) the Graveyard Tavern, complete with guided zombie tours from Atlanta Movie Tours, inoculation cocktails and the long-awaited return of the Walking Dead on the Graveyard's jumbo screens. Sate your hunger for brains (and your thirst for cocktails) with either of the below packages. We have a feeling these tickets will go fast, so, you know… look alive.
Option 1 (Everything But The Braaaaains): Before basking in the bloody gore of the season premiere, you can get yourself inoculated (i.e., grab a complimentary cocktail) and hop aboard the zombie-mobile with Atlanta Movie Tours for a guided tour with none other than a real-deal Walking Dead walker. You'll get the inside scoop on the show, impress fellow fans with your Walking Dead know-how with trivia games, and visit some of the illustrious sites that put ATL on the post-apocalyptic map (like the hospital where it all started for one particular sheriff). Of course, selfies on the Jackson Street Bridge (you know, the one with this infamous view) are to be expected. Return to the Graveyard just in time to snag a jar of spiked zombie juice, sink your teeth into a slider smothered in zombie sauce, and catch up with the Guv'nah and friends as they make their heralded return to AMC.Option 2: Stagger over to the Graveyard at 8 p.m. sharp, where a slider with zombie sauce and a cocktail await you. Oh yeah, and a cast of characters, including walkers from the show, just to get the adrenaline pumping. Once 9 p.m. rolls around, you'll be sufficiently fueled up for a harrowing hour of getting scared stiff by one of the most bloodcurdling shows on television.
