Multihyphenate talent Mr. Chris Classic served as the evening’s host and the architect of the spirits served at this seasonal soirée was none other than Atlanta’s own “The Drinking Coach”, Tiffanie Barriere, who crafted three mood-setting Maker’s cocktails inspired by both the city and Santa Claus. A Black Santa Claus.

Speaking of mood-setting, one of our faves, DJ Hourglass, was on the 1’s and 2’s keeping the atmosphere alive with a well-blended mix of R&B, hip-hop, and holiday hits that kept the party people’s feet movin’ and their booties shakin’, not stirred.

Everything we’ve shown you from the Maker’s Mark Old-Fashioned Holiday Party made for an unforgettable night out but one of the most impressive and interesting parts of this event was just below the surface…

In the cellar of The Estate, Maker’s designed a tasting station with informed bartenders who explained the process of creating traditional Maker’s, Maker’s Mark 46, and Maker’s Mark Private Select. The Private Select is especially notable because each bottle is crafted specifically by the store or bar that is lucky enough to carry it. There are over 1,000 flavor-note combinations that can be created with the ingredients used in a bottle of Maker’s Mark. If you truly love brown, this is the way to get down.

A Quiet Place Sequel First Look

Great news for fans of ‘A Quiet Place’! Paramount Pictures just revealed a first look at the upcoming film which lands in theaters March 20, 2020.

Following the deadly events at home, the Abbott family (Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe) must now face the terrors of the outside world as they continue their fight survival in silence. Forced to venture into the unknown, they quickly realize that the creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path.

So… pretty much your standard post-apocalyptic family survival story! Are y’all excited for this?


We were huge fans of the first film, which kept us on the edge of our seats. Djimon Hounsou and Cillian Murphy are in the sequel as well so we’re looking forward to seeing what roles they play. While John Krasinski isn’t in this one, he did write and direct. We love that he and wife Emily Blunt are working together again.

Oh and less we forget… Here’s a first look photos from the film as well:

It’s not going to be easy keeping that baby quiet. What kind of dangers do you think the Abbotts are going to face this time around? As far as suspense films go, how would you rank ‘A Quiet Place’? Who else is checking this one out this March?

Holy Heist: Joel Osteen Talks Linking Up With Kanye & Their Yankee Stadium Show

Joel Osteen Talks Linking Up With Kanye & Their Yankee Stadium Show

Recently two names we never thought would associate with each other were on stage praising the lord, those names would be Joel Osteen & Kanye West. The act of these two being around each other threw off everyone from fans of both to haters of both. One thing everyone saw was the potential for financial earnings and that the outcome would be more activities between the two regardless of their chemistry together. Recently Kanye brought his massive Sunday Service choir to Joel Osteen’s Houston Megachurch. Yes, the same church that was famously dragged to smithereens for rejecting hurricane victims but then invited them in and passed the collection plate around.

Ever since this holy finesse started we all wondered how in the world these two linked up and what are they really getting to. Joel Osteen was on “Good Morning America” to promote his book and broke down how the two crossed paths. It’s also worth mentioning the book is advertised as including Kanye West, so Joel is making sure to cash in on the whole experience. I

In the interview, Joel says Kanye texted him saying he was new to the “religious space” so Joel extended his hand. He also discusses their plans for 2020 and reportedly 2021, where the two will reportedly tour together and perform at massive arenas. Their first show will see the two headline Yankee Stadium and hope to fill 50k seats. We already know the shows will not be free so you can already see the jig from here.

Hopefully, both are doing it for the right reasons, because it doesn’t matter what we think they’ll have to answer one day and not to any of us.

You can watch the interview in its entirety below.

Diddy & His Mentor Ray Dalio Drop Gem After Gem On Excellence & Work Ethic [Video]

We would all like to think that our favorite celebrities and millionaires are great at everything they touch but the truth is a lot of failures happen the world never sees. For Diddy the losses almost never get the time of day because the wins are so big. While it looks like a small issue to us when executing at that level, it can hold you back. Diddy selflessly discusses this in an open forum in a new video that released with his billionaire mentor Ray Dalio.

The video is essentially to push Ray’s new book but Diddy also touched on personal troubles. In the video, Diddy opens up on why he took a step back from music revealing that the problem was the people around him. In case you’re curious how Ray and Diddy met, the two were at the Forbes 100 and made conversation while standing in alphabetical order. Ray is a billionaire hedge fund manager and ranked 58th richest personal in the word with over $18 billion in the bank.

This conversation and the gems dropped doesn’t happen often, you’ll see Diddy in a vulnerable way that you haven’t seen before.

So get your pen and paper and watch the video below to get a billion dollars worth of free game.
