Midtown Atlanta hot spot Boogalou is known for its drink-pouring baddies, trendy bar swings and carefree vibes that attract the city’s coolest somebodies for tequila-splashed nights overflowing with IG story-worthy shenanigans.

It’s also home to the start-up label behind rising star Just Jitt who dropped his debut EP “Hotel Atlanta, Vol. 1” that takes you from the club to the afterparty and back to the Ritz suite in 21 impressively curated minutes.

The much anticipated show Hollywood has finally hit Netflix and as expected, audiences are drooling over the cast.

The show, created by power producer Ryan Murphy, reimagines 1940s Hollywood with a diverse cast of characters that seek stardom.

“Each character offers a unique glimpse behind the gilded curtain of Hollywood‘s Golden Age, spotlighting the unfair systems and biases across race, gender and sexuality that continue to this day,” reads the official description, according to Shadow and Act “Provocative and incisive, HOLLYWOOD exposes and examines decades-old power dynamics, and what the entertainment landscape might look like if they had been dismantled.”

The series is sure to bring on some profound and thought-provoking themes, and if this isn’t enough to have you tune in, thirsty Twitter will try to convince you that the beautiful cast is worth watching.

Most of the cast is made up of newcomers that’ve had success in theater or important supporting roles — including Jeremy PopeLaura Harrier, David Corenswet, Samara Weaving, Jake Picking, and Maude Apatow. It also stars Darren Criss, who snagged an Emmy for another Ryan Murphy show, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.

You can peep how parched Twitter has reacted to the casting choices below.

No surprise, here.

At least 1,000 people have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 24 hours reports state health officials, bringing Georgia’s total infections above 27,000. According to stats obtained by The AJC, as of noon Thursday, the Georgia Department of Public Health was reporting just over 26,000 confirmed cases and by Friday the number was at 27,134, according to data released at 12:25 p.m.

The news comes as Gov. Brian Kemp lifted the shelter-in-place order for most of the state’s 10.6 million residents.

On Thursday Kemp defended his decision to The AJC and said loosening restrictions for much of the state’s population makes sense because almost half of the coronavirus deaths had been linked to nursing homes and other long-term care facilities.

“What we’ve done has worked,” said Kemp. “It’s given us time to build our hospital infrastructure capacity, get ventilators and ramp up testing. That’s what really drove our decision.”

He added that criticism “comes with the territory,” and he urged local officials to crack down on violators if they want residents to more strictly adhere to the guidelines reports The AJC.
“They have the enforcement powers here. They can take action if people are not heeding the advice that Dr. Toomey and I have put in place,” he said. “These protocols work. People are following them.”

At least 1,147 Georgians have died of COVID-19, the health department verified an additional 40 deaths since midday Thursday.

Kenny Chesney’s 2020 “Chillaxification Tour” was supposed to kick off April 18 in Arlington, Texas, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all dates through May 28 have been postponed.

       

The popular meme, which rolls out each year as May 1 approaches, has been updated to reflect the current reality as the world combats the coronavirus.

       

Some experts say it may not be safe for concerts to resume until 2021. Whenever they kick off, expect a slew of changes.
