MJQ and The Archive Art Gallery


MJQ – 736 Ponce De Leon Ave Atlanta, GA 30306

The Archive Art Gallery-   583 Juniper Street  Atlanta, GA 30308

MJQ is a well known underground hip hop club that I’ve been going to for close to 8 years now. Two of my favorite DJ’s spin on Friday nights. DJ Rasta Root in the front room playing some of the best new and old school hip hop and DJ Cozy Shawn in the back playing the most soulful funk/house music you’ll get in Atlanta.

Now the great thing about summer time in Atlanta…”NOT SUMMER TIME IN THE LBC” MY CALI FRIENDS…LOL….is that you’ll start having “late night” parties springing up in the Atlanta area. A late night party is a “party”…(YAAAAH) that starts usually around 3:00 AM in different secret locations. I ran into a really nice late night on Friday at The Archive Gallery. Very spacious with a good crowd and a rockn DJ. This late night is open on Friday and Saturday nights only. All drinks are only $5…and I mean ALL drinks. Anything from Pabst Blue Ribbon to a shot of JUST $5. Oh..and tell Lyndsey to make her specialty. You’ll love it. =)

So instead of saying “STAY THIRSTY MY FRIENDS” like the Dos Equis guy…

Single In Atlanta


Aja Restaurant and Bar

Aja Restaurant and Bar

3500 Lenox Rd NE

Atlanta, GA 30326



Aja is part of the Here to Serve Restuarant Group that consists of Strip, Noche, Twist, Shout, Prime, Goldfish, Home, and LOLA. Like the rest of the restaurants in this family, Aja definitely lives up to its trendy atmosphere. With its 10ft brass Budha that arrived straight from Thailand, private seating areas, and delicious food, you and your party are sure to have a great time.


And of course, at night Aja turns into a place where you can let your hair down, do some dancing, and be amongst a good looking crowd. This Saturday, I’m assuming it was Salsa night because the gist of the music was just that…lol. I still had a great time feeling like I was in Miami and everyone was auditioning for “Dancing with the Stars.” I haven’t a clue how to dance Salsa, so I spent my time at the bar with my new Afghanistan friend.

So if you love Salsa and dancing it, I would recommend having dinner at Aja and then Salsa dancing after. Be careful hitting the dance floor because they sure know what they are doing. CHEERS!

Vino Libro


Vino Libro- 933 Garrett Street  Atlanta, GA 30316

This hidden gem in Grant Park/East Avinolibro1tlanta is where sophistication meets a cozy environment. This Black-Owned Wine Bar is located in one of Atlanta’s new trendy communities in the Glenwood Park area. During the day, it’s a WiFi accessible place where you can unwind, do some work, or meet up with friends. At night it becomes a great spot to listen to jazz or lounge in a “at home” set up. They offer carefully selected fine wines in spirits ranging from $8 glass of Mont Asolo Merlot, Italy to $17  glass of Hess Cabernet Cuvee, California. Also have an amazing menu which includes Filet Mignon Skewers and Rack of Tarragon Lamb.

This is my new Starbucks, so if you see me blogging on my Iphone or laptop, please do say hello. =)

Eight at Eight



THE BEGINNING… In 1998, Eight at Eight Dinner Club had stagnated – its owners were out of new ideas and membership remained consistently low. At that point, Sarah Kathryn Smith, just 22 and a recent college graduate, stepped in, purchasing the failing company and turned Eight at Eight around. She set out to make it the premier dating service in Atlanta. Her entrepreneurial adventure in matchmaking, Eight at Eight Dinner Club, capitalized on an untapped market.

THE CONCEPT – The idea was simple – Four Single Men and Four Single Women meet for dinner at eight o’clock. Members of Eight at Eight meet in groups for an evening of friendly conversation, good food, and the chance to increase their circle of friends over dinner. The Club members are brought together based on age, mutual interest and backgrounds. The relaxed group setting relieves the pressure of one-on-one dates and increases the chances of meeting someone interesting and compatible. Sarah Kathryn and the hostess staff work closely together to choose hip restaurants, match like minds, and make introductions while buying the first round of drinks. We’re the social leaders of the group. Our research involves trying new restaurants, sampling potent potables, and chatting with singles out on the town.



W Atlanta-Midtown–Whiskey Bar

W Atlanta – Midtown

188 14th Street, NE · Atlanta, Georgia 30361

Atlanta is really stepping its game up with all the new trendy homes, condos, hotels, and eateries they are constructing. The W Hotel off Peachtree Street is no exception. Upon entering the hotel you are met with a contemporary, luxury, chic feeling.  Not to mention vaulted ceilings throughout with radiance illuminating the hotel with a magnificent glow. As you walk around the lobby area, there are different staircases you can go up with each level having an awe-inspiring restaurant accompanied by an encompassing wood grain bar and lounge areas where you could sit with your party and enjoy the atmosphere.

I finally made my way to the Whiskey Bar wwhich I thought FOR SURE would be a charge, but not here at the W. It’s free to get in the Whiskey Bar which is located at the top level of the hotel.

The Whiskey Bar decor was just as superlative as the rest of the hotel, which was no surprise. They have a DJ playing a mixture of house music in addition to some of the latest tunes on the air waves. It is a mix, trendy, hip, cool crowd geared more towards the age group of 27-45.

w1On a warmer day you can go to the back and sit in a villa type array with fashionable seating convoying trendy tea lights sitting on black trendy tables. The W and the Whiskey Bar get two thumbs up from me. =)

Also Jan. 27, 2009 another downtown W location will be opening. See ya there! Cheers.



Cellar 56


Cellar 56

In Andrews Square: 56 E Andrews Dr NW, Buckhead; 404.869.1132
Wine bars are typically painfully expensive joints populated by hoity-toity types sipping $15 glasses and picking rare Spanish mountain-hog ham from their teeth with golden toothpicks. Get classily buzzed for less, at Cellar 56. 

Thrillist - Cellar 56
Decked out with a deep-chocolate wood bar, stone tile and wood floors, 20+ white-linen’d tables, and cream-colored banquettes, C56 slings high quality vino and chow at such reasonable prices, you’d think you were in an Irish Pub — no coincidence, since the owners run the one directly upstairs. The “56” address dictates both the number of grapey selections and the priciest bottles (Roco Pinot Noir, Verget Macon Bussieres 2006…); however, thirty bottles (Hedges CSM, Kung-Fu Girl Riesling…) are priced at just $24 — so when you order the cheapest option, you’re not being a shameful d*ck, you’re just going with the majority. Small plates are likewise inexpensive, with Land & Sea” offerings (braised lamb shanks, “pork t-bones”) at $5, “Garden” items $4, and “Sweets” like White Chocolate Cream Pudding w/ Krispy Kreme donuts at just $3 — cheaper than a box of Ding Dongs, and there’s pudding.
In the near future, C56 will host special events, starting with a dinner showcasing cigars and bourbons — a hooch frequently enjoyed by non- hoity-toity types as they clean pimiento loaf off their tooth.
