Nearly 148 years after General Sherman set Atlanta ablaze, another fiery event promises to leave its own mark on the Southern metropolis.
On August 4, Atlantans will gather to celebrate the city’s best businesses and organizations during one of the biggest and hottest events of the summer. Fenuxe Magazine will host its annual Fire Party to honor the recently announced Best of Atlanta winners, who were hand-picked by Fenuxe readers.
Fenuxe doesn’t deny its flair for extravagance, and the Fire Party won’t disappoint those with high expectations. Divulging too many details would spoil all the blazing fun. However, a taste of what’s to come will hopefully appease your burning curiosity.
Some of the most scorching hot talent can be found right in Atlanta, and these top-notch entertainers will undoubtedly ensure the Fire Party will be remembered for a long time. Among several of the party’s fire performers are Timothy Mack of Imperial OPA Circus, Cody Herndon of Eccentric Productions, and Chandler Bearden, who is one half of an independent fire act.
After finishing a tour with Cirque du Soleil in 2008, Timothy moved to Atlanta and founded a circus. He’s a regular performer at Jungle’s Nectar Party and wows crowds with various acts, including fire swords and fire eating. Cody, another Nectar regular, is primarily known for his fire-breathing work and his stilt walking. Chandler has flexed his flame skills at the Beltane Festival, a Midsummer Nights event, in the streets of Atlanta for Independence Day, and most recently at Tongue and Groove as the iconic dancing devil of Fireball Whisky.
You certainly can’t have a fire party without fire, and you definitely can’t throw a shindig with music.
Thanks to DJ Mike B, guests can expect some serious ass-shaking music all night long. During his long career, Mike B has opened for the Black Eyed Peas, Alicia Keys, Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Outkast and Ludacris. He’s also the main mix show DJ for Atlanta’s Q100. Most importantly, though, he quite literally sets his records on fire while performing.
A few other performers for the evening will include Nicole Paige Brooks, Princess Charles, and Mary Edith Pitts. Ms. Pitts will also be raising money for Jerusalem House and AID Atlanta, with a portion of drink sales going to both organizations.
General admission, which includes one complimentary cocktail, is $5 prior to July 30 and $10 after.
