During 2015's Atlanta Food & Wine Festival, Holeman & Finch was playing games -- Bingo, to be precise. Their cards made sport of the everyday clichés of a Southern food festival, much to our thrill and delight. We thought they were so great, in fact that they deserved a revival in 2016. Holeman & Finch was nice enough to oblige us, so here it is, for your click-and-print amusement: the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival Bingo Card.

Psst... you can get tickets to the Atlanta Food & Wine Festival (June 2 - 5, 2016) by clicking here.
