Atlanta Grilled Cheese Festival Recap

The Atlanta Sport and Social Club hosted the Atlanta Grilled Cheese Festival and the bites were so melty and delicious I had to hit the gym pretty hard the next day.

The Festival took place at the Old Fourth Ward Skatepark and included cheesy bites from 9 different savory establishments along with beer, wine, and Bloody Marys.
