Dems Giving Away 50 Pairs of Tickets to Obama's Convention Speech

Buckhead residents - You need to get to Manuel's Tavern by noon Friday for a chance at the free tickets.

Buckhead Democrats, you have a chance to see President Barack Obama's acceptance speech in person at next week's Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC.

The DeKalb Democratic Party sent out this message Thursday night.


In Atlanta: Manuel's Tavern, 602 N Highland Avenue NE, Atlanta, GA 30307

In Macon: Bibb County Democratic Party, 835 Forsyth St. Suite A, Macon GA 31201

Here's the rules:

Everyone who is at Manuel's Tavern or the Bibb County Democratic Party by noon is eligible for two tickets. Arrive early if you want, but it won't give you a better chance to win. Just be there by 12 noon!

If less than 50 people arrive, everyone will get a pair! If more than 50 folks arrive, we will do a random drawing to determine our winners.

There is no cost involved. We're not selling the tickets, we're giving them away.

Since we're not selling tickets, you can't sell them either! If you sell your tickets to someone else, they will be deactivated.

For planning purposes, we expect that President Obama will speak at 8pm on Thursday. To insure that you are in your seat for the speech, you should arrive at the stadium that afternoon. There will be strict security at the event.

Your trip to Charlotte to see the President's historic speech begins tomorrow.

Were the free tickets to the Democratic Convention given away in Atlanta, this Friday, 8/31 or next Friday? Are there any other locations in Metro Atlanta giving away free Dem Tickets?

Hi, Sharon. The tickets were given away Aug. 31 and Manuel's was the only Atlanta location we heard about. The Democratic party also gave away tickets on Friday in Macon.
