Atlanta After Dark: Swingers Club

What really happens inside an Atlanta swingers club?

At Trapeze Club, you won’t see a massive orgy upon entering. The large front room has a dance floor (with an obligatory stripper pole), a buffet table, and two bars. Most of the action occurs in the back.

Don Farmer, Chris Curle deliver Deadly News to DBF

The couple will introduce the novel to friends and fans Saturday morning on the Emerging Writers stage at the AJC Decatur Book Festival at 10:50 a.m. This week, Farner and Curle took time out from visiting old colleagues and family in town (Farmer is the father of current Action News anchor Justin Farmer) to discuss Deadly News with Atlanta magazine.
Big Boi new album

Big Boi thinks Killer Mike should run for Atlanta mayor

We chat with Atlanta rap legend Big Boi about his new album, Boomiverse, the state of hip-hop in Atlanta, and why he loves Marcel (despite the fact that he doesn't eat steak).

Coming: Mr. 715

He is almost always just Hank. He is recognized wherever he goes and people want to touch him, get his autograph and pose for pictures with him. He was 20 when he began these sojourns, swatting No. 1 in 1954, when Eisenhower was President.

The Broke Socialite Pens a Book

So have her ambitions. There’s now a Broke Socialite event series (the Sugar Coma sweets tour is the most popular), and last December she organized the Lavish! conference, a national social media event that focused on the likes of fashion, beauty, home decor, and travel.

Singer Kevin Rowe debuts benefit single, Saturday fundraiser to combat Atlanta’s sex trafficking trade

Daniel Arsham

Daniel Arsham’s art shows how looks can be deceiving

Inside this purple cave, the walls are lined not with rocks but sports equipment: basketballs, tennis balls, footballs, soccer balls. Look closer, and you’ll see something else: Instead of rubber or leather, the balls are made of calcified amethyst crystal, pockmarked with sparkly pitted edges.

Dissenters did not get a chance to weigh in at last night’s Cobb Commission vote on the Braves stadium

Last night’s Cobb County Commission meeting felt more like a Chamber-backed groundbreaking for the new Braves stadium than a public forum. Before the call to order, the room was packed with suits, ties, and a few nametags attached to people talking about business, glad-handing, and passing out cards—the only things missing were the souvenir hard hats and shiny shovels.
Jon Ossoff

The country is watching Jon Ossoff

What to make of new polling that shows Jon Ossoff, a 30-year-old Democrat who’s never before run for public office, has as much voter support as the top three Republican candidates combined? It’s no wonder that some observers view the wide-open race in the heavily Republican 6th—the special election is on April 18, the runoff in June—as an effective referendum on the already troubled Trump presidency.
