Music Midtown is bringing Kendrick Lamar, Post Malone, Fall Out Boy, Imagine Dragons, Khalid, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Gucci Mane, and more to Atlanta; Aladdin is coming to the Fox Theatre; and Brooklyn Brewery will have a pop-up with beer and eclectic music at 787 Windsor.
The flock of shrieking preteens (and a few shamefacedly excited adults) attending Justin Bieber’s January 23 Philips Arena show will undoubtedly be well versed in the moppet’s history. After all, the eighteen-year-old has already published two (!) memoirs. For the rest of us: a primer on the pop star’s past—including his tutelage under Atlanta impresario and Emory dropout Scooter Braun—courtesy of his mom Pattie Mallette, who wrote a memoir of her own, Nowhere but Up.
Six Flags Over Georgia, where throwing your hands in the air, relishing in the thrilling moments of plunging downhill and looping upside-down in reckless (and seat-belted) abandon is totally and completely worth the wait in line … with the sweltering heat, dizziness, and nausea that accompany it.

Pundits seem to think Newt did well at Sunday's GOP debate in South Carolina. Newt clearly agrees with the them. In fact, he just produced a commercial consisting of two of his *zingers* from the debate (I've bookended the word zinger with asterisks because I think it looks zingier that way).
Listen you ITP people, there’s no reason to get personal. We Cobb residents didn’t ask for a baseball stadium any more than you Atlantans lobbied to kick the Braves out. Please direct your anger at Braves owner Liberty Media and your *own* elected officials. Hating on Cobb County is like an ex-wife blaming her husband’s new spouse, even though she’s the one who initiated the divorce.
