Your guide: Beca Grimm
The Dope Girls zine cofounder and party host extraordinaire shops local to ring in 2020 with a Babysitter’s Club–themed bash at home.
For alcohol: I’ll order a pony keg of SweetWater 420 from Westview Corner Grocery. It’s an easy beer that pleases everyone and is actually good. For wine and champagne, I’ll head to Hop City’s location on the BeltLine’s Westside Trail. Montane for the non-drinkers. And I’ll book the dogs a sleepover at Barking Hound Village Lofts.
Flowers are beautiful but can also be wasteful, so I’ll use this as an excuse to buy more plants from the Victorian to make sure everyone is tripping over them. I’ll make a run to Value Village to collect mason jars to use as cups. Then I’ll go to Chamblee’s Antique Row district for extra ashtrays to collect herbal-refreshment waste.
I’ll swing by Videodrome to pick up The Babysitter’s Club on DVD. They special-ordered a copy for me once, and I’m going to put it to use. Afterward, I head to Sevananda Natural Foods to buy white sage for party favors.
Crossing my fingers I have everything picked up. Bring your own skincare face masks (I’m giving y’all all this booze and masa) because I’ll be wearing one from Fig and Flower.
