Atlanta has changed so much in my ten years here… To be honest, Atlanta has changed immensely since I started this blog six years ago. Sadly, I cannot say all of the changes are for the best.
Six years ago, I had to fight to get from one house party to the next. And each party was quality! Great food, plenty of drinks…
Today, house parties are in short supply.
Additionally, Atlanta was a city known for club life. Ten years ago, there was a nightspot for each night of the week.
Saturday belonged to Traxx.
Sunday was a choice between Chaparral and the Lion’s Den.
Monday was the Monday Night Show with the Star’s of the Century.
Tuesday also belonged to Traxx.
Wednesday was the Marq.
Thursday was Bulldawgs.
Fridays was Colors.
Today, as shocking as it is, there is no Saturday nightclub for men of color in the A.
How did it come to this?
The economy has killed the house party scene and social networking has put clubs out of business.
Why spend money on an outfit, entry, and drinks to meet a good jump off when Grindr and jack’d put the men right at your fingertips?
