The Speakeasy Cocktail Festival is coming to Atlanta Labor Day weekend. Celebrating the Prohibition Era, the festival will take attendees through the history and evolution of beer, wine and cocktails, and include plenty of tastings. All in attendance will receive a souvenir tasting glass, among other swag.

There will be '20s-inspired entertainment and food booths, as well as a charity poker tournament, casino lounge, pool hall, cigar lounge and a cocktail-mixing competition called the Makers & Shakers Mixology Championship. The winner's cocktail will be available at the Georgia Dome for one year.

Held at the Georgia World Congress Center, the festival runs from noon to 6 p.m. September 1 and 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. September 2. Ticket prices range from $25 to $230 depending on if you purchase a day or full-weekend pass, or want VIP status.
