Christopher “Ludacris” Bridges has partnered with San Francisco restaurateur Chris Yeo to open several restaurants in Metro Atlanta.? The first, which will be called “Straits”, is set to open in April of this year in Midtown.? Straits will be located at 793 Juniper St. (at Fifth Street) in the building that was formerly the restaurant Spice.
The menu looks good so I’ll definitely be adding this spot to my list!? The hours will be 5 p.m. to midnight (Monday through Wednesday)? 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. (Thursday through Saturdays) and 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Sundays.? There?are no lunch hours specified but they will open for brunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sundays.

I received a press release today regarding Pezo In Da Cribb from Atlanta?s Hot 107.9….I?think you have to say the whole thing kinda like “a pimp named slickback“…? Anyway, Pezo In Da Cribb and Yung Joc got together over the holidays and decided to “Make it Rain in Da Hood” by?giving away money to the homeless and underprivileged.?
Make?It Rain In Da Hood is not only about?passing out dollar bills to those in need, but it’s also about your money making a difference in a person’s life, which in turn brings personal satisfaction. Pezo In Da Cribb will continue his campaign each week with future plans to give away various items such as food, shoes, toiletries and clothing.
What struck me more than the compassion and creativity of Peza in Da Cribb was how dayum?cute he is in that dang picture.? I was mesmerized for a few seconds until I had a flashback about this dream nightmare I had that Taye Diggs?was vacuuming my floor naked with a broomvac…(I?ate late that night!)
The “A”s own Jermaine Dupri is a multi-talented entrepreneur.?

That’s right boys and girls, Jermaine wants to start his own chain of hotels called Hotel D.?? Just think, he could make all the beds low enough so that he doesn’t have to jump up!? I kid…I kid!?
I’m sure it will be just as successful as that dang vodka he makes….what’s it called again?? (Source)
Has your landline connection been unusually clear these days?? Have you noticed that your cellie’s stopped dropping calls?? Well you can thank the Feds.? Just like you, they’ve been late paying their phone bills and several companies have disconnected their wire taps!?
Washington ? Telephone companies have cut off FBI wiretaps used to eavesdrop on suspected criminals because of the bureau’s repeated failures to pay phone bills on time.
A Justice Department audit released Thursday blamed the lost connections on the FBI’s lax oversight of money used in undercover investigations. In one office alone, unpaid costs for wiretaps from one phone company totaled $66,000. (Source)
