The 404 Kit, which launches Tuesday, is all about the ’90s in Atlanta. And to ensure it told an authentically Atlanta story, the club collaborated on the kit with Atlanta Influences Everything, the creative consultancy and brand behind Atlanta's favorite T-shirt. It features "ATL UTD" in a bold, graffiti airbrush font on a black background, with thick white Adidas stripes on the shoulders and white trim on the sides.
Just before Halloween, Kevin Gillespie's Gunshow is paying tribute to the 1990s. The Glenwood Park restaurant will feature a menu filled with '90s throwback foods and pop culture references—all while the staff dresses up and '90s music roars through the speakers.
