Christmas Vacation

  • georgia beer garden 420 Edgewood Avenue Southeast Atlanta, GA, 30312 United States (map)


Come all ye faithful to to the hap, hap, happiest Christmas since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny Fucking Kay.

That’s right — this December 19th we’re watching CHRISTMAS VACATION together, outdoors, in the warm embrace of kith and kin.

Your $11 ticket includes:

  • Heaters and firepits, graciously donated by Fred Martin Welding

  • Complimentary hot drink bar with spiced cider and hot cocoa

  • Lots of swearing — Unlike the edited-for-TV version, this is a cuss-a-long screening, so feel free to quote your heart out

  • Special prizes for anyone who comes in costume

  • Delicious food and drink available from the fine folks at Georgia Beer Garden, who definitely work harder than washing machines

So bundle up and join the jolliest bunch of assholes this side of the nuthouse. We’re going all the way with heaters and firepits, but feel free to bring blankets, handwarmers, hot water bottles — whatever makes you comfortable for 90 minutes outdoors in December. Worst case, we'll get through it with a lot of help from Jack Daniels.


  • 7:00pm - Doors Open

  • 7:30pm - Showtime

  • 9:15 - Movie end

More about Fred Martin Welding, who we are especially grateful for:

"In 1938 Fred Estes Martin opened Fred Martin Welding Company. As the business grew, he move to the current location in 1949. Fred's wife, Addie, did the bookkeeping while Fred did most of the welding. Their 3 children, Fred, Margery and Philip all spent time at the shop, but it was the oldest, Fred, (known as "Bub" to many) who eventually took over when big Fred passed away in 1959. Fred, who was an expert welder, ran the business with his wife, Joyce. Customers still come in who remember Fred welding their bicycles. In 1995 Fred and Joyce retired to the beach, and their nephew, Philip Jr. (known as "Marty") took over at the helm. Marty, who is also a musician, along with his wife, Kelly and dog Bodie can be found at the shop most days having a great time on Edgewood."
