There’s always something to do in The ATL! Check out my curated event list for Black professionals in Atlanta this week.
1. DRAG BINGO NIGHT
Tuesday, March 6, 2018, 8:00 p.m.
Your Tuesday night no longer has to be a drag. Come out to Drag Bingo night and get your life! Sip a $5 Dickel Whiskey and eat $1 tacos until you burst. Learn more HERE.
2. DAILY TACO FIX
Wednesday, March 7, 2018, 6:00 p.m.
Remember playing games like Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter II and Tekken 4? On one hand, you had skilled players who knew what buttons to press on the joystick. On the other hand, you had players who pressed the buttons wildly but somehow still won. For nostalgia and throwback arcade games, come through to Joystick Game Bar. Grab a cocktail and play! Learn more HERE.
3. BLACK TWITTER #IRL (IN REAL LIFE)
Wednesday, March 7, 2018, 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
We all know #BlackTwitter can be petty, ruthless and savage, but it’s real and hilarious. Meet your fellow Petty Queens and Savage Kings #IRL. It’s a kickback for the culture, a space for us to connect and converse. Learn more HERE.
4. PANCAKES AND BOOZE ART SHOW
Friday, March 9, 2018, 8:00 p.m. – 2:00 a.m.

5. SILENT R&B PARTY
Friday, March 9, 2018, 9:30 p.m. – 2:00 a.m.
There’s nothing like listening to music when you have headphones covering your ears and the bass is at the highest level. You’re no longer in control as your body starts to rock and sway to the music. Experience the silent R&B party with special guest Bobby Valentino. Learn more HERE.
6. THINK BIGGIE: BIGGIE SMALLS AND BAD BOY TRIBUTE
Friday, March 9, 2018, 10:00 p.m.
Picture these Biggie lyrics, “It was all a dream, I used to read Word Up! magazine, Salt-N-Pepa and Heavy D up in the limousine.” To complete the picture, insert your best Diddy bop –here– and make sure you have a toothpick in your mouth to complete the look. Learn more HERE.

What’s better than bottomless mimosas? Probably nothing! When you pair mimosa’s with bomb food and hookah, it’s almost too good to be true. Just be prepared for when you hear, “Cash Money Records taking over for the 99 and the 2000.” Learn more HERE.
8. ATLANTA BRUNCH FESTIVAL
Saturday, March 10, 2018, 12:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Sunday, March 11, 2018, 12:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Alert! Open bar alert! (DJ Khaled voice) Be aware, with an event this lit, you must prepare one day in advance and give yourself 24 – 48 hours afterward to recover. The venue is bigger, the brunch buffet is better and the fun? Endless. Learn more HERE.
