This year’s Jack Daniel’s Art, Beats & Lyrics is bound to be epic given that the annual event is set to take place at Atlanta’s newly-opened Mercedes-Benz Stadium. For those unfamiliar, Art, Beats & Lyrics (ABL) is described as a “traveling urban art and music exhibition” that “supports visionary artists and musicians who share our values of authenticity, creativity, and individuality.” I’ve attended ABL on several occasions, and it’s definitely an event you don’t want to miss.

I’m still sulking over last night’s episode of “Game Of Thrones,” but I promise I’ll snap out of it just in time to check out Chicago-based artist Hebru Brantley’s“Penny Candy” art show here in Atlanta. Taking place at the Loews Atlanta Hotel this Friday, June 7, the show will feature over 40 (purchasable) paintings, drawings, and sculptures from Brantley and promises to be quite the occasion. Keeping with the theme of the art show, SKYY Vodka will be on hand to provide attendee’s with complimentary, penny candy-themed cocktails. You can also expect plenty of hors d’œuvres and tunes from DJ Kemit and DJ Karl Injex.
The event is free to the public, and if you wish to attend be sure to head over to the “Penny Candy” Eventbrite page to RSVP. You can find more info in the flyer below.
Let’s be real here, on top of being the biggest musical festival of the year South By Southwest is also the biggest open bar extravaganza of the year. I’m sure it probably becomes a bit overwhelming trying to figure out which venues and showcases are serving up the free booze so over the next few days I’ll be compiling a list of all the SXSW events that I hear about which include some kind of open bar. You can thank me later.
Oh and P.S. just because it’s open bar it doesn’t mean you have to become a drunken lunatic. Also, since it’s free please be sure to tip whoever’s serving you your free booze.
