Fans of an iconic ATL restaurant pay homage.

A restaurant can be more than a place to eat. It can also be a hub for friendship and family. That’s how many people feel about Cowtippers. This midtown Atlanta establishment has been a force in the city’s LGBT scene for the last two decades. But earlier this month, Cowtippers announced the end of an era. It plans to close February 18. GPB intern Emily Bunker visited for a lunchtime drag show-- “The Heifer Review,” and she sent back this audio postcard.
