Sunday Night Skate: Clubs don’t have anything on Cascade’s rolling weekly party

These skate sessions have been one of the biggest social events in the Adamsville and Oakcliff areas since the rink opened in 2000. Stars like Bow Wow, Usher, and Jermaine Dupri skate here, and the 2006 movie ATL was largely filmed inside Cascade.
Willie Watkins

Meet Willie Watkins: Atlanta’s mortuary mogul

Nearly 40 years since Watkins turned a former Confederate general’s Victorian house in the West End into a funeral home, he has built a multimillion dollar empire that lays to rest roughly 1,500 people each year. Watkins organized the funerals of Coretta Scott King, Lillian Miles Lewis (Congressman John Lewis’s wife of 50 years), and family members of Usher and Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks.

Usher, Ed Roland, and more local celebs talk youth empowerment

Atlanta’s movers and shakers met at the St. Regis hotel today for an event celebrating Usher’s New Look foundation.

Apparently the von Trapps (yes, as in “doe, a deer”) have been hanging around the ATL

Well, we all know Justin Bieber got his start thanks to Atlanta's star-grooming machine. But the great grandkids of Captain Georg von Trapp? Turns out Sophi, 24, Melanie, 22, Amanda, 21, and August, 18—What? no Liesl or Friedrich?—have been in town working with vocal coach Jan Smith, whose client roster includes the Biebs, Usher, and Rob Thomas. Although we were hoping for goatherds and edelweiss, the video of the von Trapps and another family band, Alpharetta's Von Grey, doing the folky "Crying Bloody Water" in studio is kind of adorable.
