Jon Wain 2010, the triple threat

Let's talk about Triple Threats. Yes because I heard good things come in three's. Didn't you? Ok so there's The Dream, Missy Elliot, the legendary R. Kelly, just to name a select few "respectables" who fall into this special category in the music industry. In case you were born yesterday, Triple Threat = a writer, producer and singer. While you may have many that tout their expertise, not all who put out the work, do it well so when you encounter one who does justice to their entire craft you must take note. And I've taken note of writer, producer, singer, Jon Wain. It's my joyful duty to share him (And I'm not usually "that kind" of woman... ;) ).

A young man from the city of Chicago, burning up the musical streets of Atlanta in 3 hot ways has come to stake his claim. He's somebody to look out for with singles like, "Iz you Ready" (Listen and/or download here), a slow jam for the lady or the lover. No this is not the John Wayne of your parent's parent's favorite country western flick, this is the sexy, yet still strong and confident Jon Wain of 2010. Oooh weee. Time to bring in the new.

Want more? Sure you do. For more Jon Wain, follow and connect with him at the links below: *Note for the fans- he actually stays in touch, get at him while you can.

So what does Chilli Want? PLUS party with her TONIGHT at the Gold Room!

Chilli at her Atlanta private viewing
Party with Chilli

Ok so who watched the show last night?? Will Chilli REALLY find love?
Will Tionna (love coach) hurt someone with those tigobitties?
And what's wrong with a little pork chop in your life?

Well the member of the famed pop group TLC is attempting to do so in a new VH1 reality show (answers to the other posed questions explored at an unknown date. just stay TUNED!). She explores dating men with the help of a sassy NY dating coach, Tionna Smalls in order to possibly find, "the one". It's smart the coach is there because ya girl is picky. No not just picky, as in, he needs to be tall, nice teeth, and working, NO. I'm talking about PICKY all the way down to what he will or won't eat. DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMN. Well good luck. And i don't say that in a sarcastic way. I think it's good to have a list of desires you want in a mate. HOWEVER be flexible. AND be willing to work on YOU. There is no perfection. Which is good because it keeps life interesting (And allows counselors to stay employed and get paid. *wink*).

So that poses a question, are women in general too picky? Hmm. Many men would shout a loud, "YES!" however boys, i have encountered quite a few VERY picky guys in my day. I'm talking about the ones that want what they can't even provide or want a "bad chick" but they just all together look BAD! SMH. Anyway i had the opportunity to attend the private viewing for the new show a few days ago here in Atlanta at Straits restaurant and i promise, the entire room was laughing! So if you missed it last night, catch Chilli's fun show, "What Chilli Wants" on VH1 Sunday nights! Good TV. Social Addiction APPROVED!

Thanks to Christal Jordan of Enchanted PR for the invite. Such great PR! She goes hard for Chilli!

Bucc's Barbeque, Atlanta's new finger licking eatery!

Need i explain besides, "MMM MMM MMM!"

Atlanta is known for being a brave city entrepreneurially speaking. As a city patron for almost 16 years i have seen many enthusiastic ideas and attempts of club and restaurant greatness in that near double decade.

Well right in time for hot weather, one of those good ideas has hit Atlanta with the grand opening of Bucc's Barbecue! I am always a slight skeptic upon hearing of business owners and investors with new hopes of grandeur in the form of a new hot spot for both the elite and non to mix,mingle or simply, "get their eat on". It takes bravery in a flailing economy to decide to hope, dream then build, which going for it, is the part i can respect. So while i wasn't sold on a new eatery in hotlanta, especially a BBQ eatery, i immediately respected the efforts to bring something old out with a fresh twist.

On the hot spring day that i drove to Bucc's i must admit i was secretly hoping for its success because i was a tad hungry...bump that i was famished (Everyone knows i'm a fat kid at heart. Consistent workout is my saving grace.)! And i arrived at the right time because i came moments before the passing of the plates, if you will. I got my plate, and SOLD! Bucc's has a menu full of southern barbecue favorites, some with as i said earlier, fresh or new twists. They serve beef ribs, chicken wings, link sandwiches (YES!!), slammin' potato salad, greens, green beans, and not to mention (Side thought: Why do people say "not to mention" and then mention it anyway? Hmmm.), the best macaroni and cheese this side of hwy 85. The only thing i really didn't care for was the chicken chili. The chicken in the chili was a little dry and the mixture had flavors that were strong yet didn't work well together in my opinion. I like my homemade chili to taste like it came straight from Grandma's pot. You know, the one she put her foot in. So now that i've listed about a quarter of the menu i bet the meat connoisseurs know what wasn't mentioned. Pork. Cuz there's no pork. GASP! Yea i said it, no swine, no "other white meat" but you won't miss ms.piggy because the menu is so full of goodness that your pig fetish will fly away faster than a man confronted by his main chick and his side piece at a rowdy family reunion (I'm just sayin'...).

Bucc's was started by owner Will Robinson and is the brain child of Dawnee Robinson the mother of 2009's young slain rapper, Roderick "Dolla" Burton who was lovingly known as Bucc to loved ones. The eatery is located in the perfect location in the Grant Park area on Boulevard in downtown Atlanta. But don't expect to sit and gab with your homies while licking perfect mango bbq sauce off of your greedy little fingers, the spot is equipped with a drive thru, a walk in counter but no tables. Get your stuff, take it home to your family or friends or catered picnic and be on your merry eating way! And guess what they are open late you belly busters (mainly talking to myself)! Matter of fact, i've done made myself so hungry from writing this article that i just might...oooh let me stop before i have to pop in another Billy Blanks tape! Anywho...i came, i saw, i ate, i loved! If you haven't had Bucc's do yourself a favor and HAVE BUCC'S! I betcha a "dolla" you'll love it! :)
