Oh And Before I Forget…
In my pursuit to bring the blogs something different, I had to put you all onto the hottest new nightspot in the city of Atlanta that’s garnering a lot of buzz.
Formerly known as Club Dreamz aka Atlanta Live, my ppl’s over at Felix Murphy, Piedmont promotions and Furious ENT Presents have all come together to bring us all a little Miami nightlife with the newly built Club Mansion Elan.
I’m not much of a club head these days, but it’s safe to say that when I’m out I’m at Mansion. With multiple flat screens, a newly custom built venue, with numerous VIP spots in the cut — or not if that’s your thing, DJ Teplon on the 1’s & 2’s, and numerous celebrities bound to pop up without notice, Club Mansion Elan is rapidly becoming “the spot” in the ATL that’s getting the Gyant co-sign.
This weekend, Saturday July 17th, Club Mansion Elan turns into a lockeroom [pause] as the hot new venue celebrates NFL Birthday Weekend Celebration.
NFL Players like Cecil Newton, Anthony Smith, Tony McDaniels, Brian Williams, Clint Ingram, Bryan Iwuh and tons more will all be in the building.
Now I dont know about you, but this all sounds like way more fun then to be around the same mundane nightspots, surrounded by the mundane people. Fellas you already know the ladies are gonna come out in droves.
Don’t say I didn’t put you on.
Gyant on BET.com is launching the very first urban comic strip to run daily on BET.com.
In conjunction with Digital Multimedia artist and super animator Aaron Archie, “Keep The Change,” is an exclusive comic that centers around a twenty-something year old guy named Ron, who has a roommate Kareem, and is dealing with life, relationships and the day to day grind.
Check out the hilarious comic above. Be sure to check back tomorrow for a new strip with some funny and controversial topics. [To See "Keep The Change" Larger Click Comic]
