Atlanta has truly become a hub for some of the most prominent game players in film and entertainment. Everyday a new project is born and one amazing Atlanta spot is highlighting the best and brightest of those indie filmmakers–Screening Room Atlanta!

Set in Negril Village Atlanta’s second level room for private parties, Screening Room ATL takes place every Wednesday and is hosted by Christopher Allison and the lovely Khalimah Gaston! Khalimah is a rising star and amazing actress who you may remember from Signal 23 TV’s Steel River, among other projects. This past Wednesday, for the second week in a row we found ourselves there enjoying some amazing people and delicious Caribbean food–we definitely recommend you try the Jerk Chicken plate with cabbage, plantains, rice and beans, YUM–and of course a few new films!

That night we saw three trailers for films entitled Vindictive and  F.A.M. and watched the first episode of the award winning hit web seriesTough Love. Vindictive is a bit of an action thriller with a Bourne Identity feel to it. The film stars Jarrett Michael Collins who also appears in a supernatural thriller called They. F.A.M. is rather endearing film about a blended family. A man tries raising his teenage daughter with the help of his wife and her mother, his childhood sweetheart. Naturally, there is a bit of family drama when he is in a tug of war between three women he loves and cares about.

Tough Love was the real jewel of the night, however. The web series details the lives and love lives of six millennials living in New York City. The various story lines and characters are all too believable and relatable, with a character everyone either knows or is. Check out the first episode of the series below:

Two of the series’ stars, actor and model, Travis Cure, and actress and singer, Meela Williams (702, R&B Divas Atlanta) made an appearance discussing not only their characters but their upcoming projects. Travis is set to appear in more series and campaigns while Meela is continuing work with various organizations that combat autism, a condition her son with Musiq Soulchild suffers from.

Screening Room ATL takes place EVERY Wednesday night and you can be sure that we will be there in the mix–networking, partying, and most of all updating you on the latest indie flicks to hit the scene. Be there, or be boring! Check out a few pictures from that night!

The Mini Room is a small room–kid-sized, to be exact–made like real lego pieces! A near kid-sized Emmett, from The Lego Movie, was even there! Check out a few photos from the awesome event, attended by our very own Michael “Hey Mikey” Fanning below!

 

We absolutely enjoyed ourselves at the event as you can see. We especially enjoyed the special backpacks/goodie bags we were given. It was filled with Lego Movie: The Second Part paraphernalia, including lego blocks and people featuring Lucy and Emmett from the movie. We have no doubt we are going to love this film when it comes out; and you will to. Be sure to catch it in theaters nationwide, Friday, February 8th!

Cynthia Bailey hosted an island-themed launch party on Thursday, October 25th at The Bailey Wine Bar in Grant Park for her new signature  flavor, “Peach Bellini,” under her new partnership with Seagrams Escapes!

Cynthia was joined by her Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA) co-stars Nene Leakes, Kandi Burruss, Porsha Williams, Shamea Morton, Eva Marcille,  Shamari De Voe,  Tanya Sam, Yovanna Logan and their significant others.  Also to round out the evening was the surprise return of Kenya Moore.  You can find Seagram’s Escapes, Peach Bellini on shelves in February 2019 at your local retailer.seagrams peach bellini

Events like these–and the surprises and drama–only have us even more stoked for the eleventh season of RHOA. As an Atlanta native and resident of The Peach State I was all too excited when Seagram’s announced the Peach Bellini flavor of their wine cooler collection. The beverage is sweet and refreshing; and smooth enough to actually serve as a chaser when you combine it with vodka! Happy drinking, and as always, DRINK RESPONSIBLY!

Atlanta is a place known for its diverse heritage, hospitality, soul food, and trap music, truly embodying southern culture. Last night, BET Networks brought “the A” some Brooklyn flavor to familiarize the market with the network’s newest reality series, “Hustle In Brooklyn.”

The BK vibe was recreated at the event as BET converted Atlanta hotspot Terminus 330 to a scene reminiscent of a Brooklyn neighborhood. The room was decorated with a brownstone stoop, a bodega with “Hustle In Brooklyn” magazines featuring the cast, street lights and signs, newspaper stands and New York City metro cards with the “Hustle In Brooklyn” logo. To complete the Brooklyn décor, specialty cocktails ‘Notorious’ and ‘Nutcrackers’ were served, and New York-based DJ Lindsey kept the party moving on the ones and twos.

Speaking to the crowd, cast members SantosDarnell and Azia talked about their individual passions, what makes Brooklyn such a special place, and their excitement about the show. Azia, an aspiring rapper and singer, performed two of her original tracks, “Brooklyn Girl” and “3000,” that electrified the crowd.

Hustle In Brooklyn” airs Tuesdays at 10/9c pm on BET.
