One of my favorite annual Georgia attractions is back!

As many of you know, hitting up the Netherworld Haunted House (1313 Netherworld Way, Stone Mountain, Ga. 30087) is an ongoing tradition for me and my homies! Especially awesome for double dates, I also take friends and family, and make an awesome night of it.

ATLANTA: The most highly-acclaimed and terrifying haunted house in the nation,
 NETHERWORLD Haunted House, is set to make its return during its Opening Weekend this Friday, Sept. 23 and Saturday, Sept. 24 with two nightmarish haunts and plenty of thrilling new additions to its Halloween themed Midway!
 
This year, thrill seekers will get the scare of their lives at NETHERWORLD’S PARASITIC and THE UNDYING HORROR haunted houses. In THE UNDYING HORROR, visitors will try to escape a massive world-destroying ancient monster and its wraithlike army, and in PARASITIC, guests will confront the mind-controlling spores and carnivorous chlorophyll creatures unleashed by a nefarious plant-based life form filled with the twisted power from last year’s Planet X!

 
“Both of our haunts this year blend elements of our previous stories into brand new tales, even more intense than the ones that came before them,” said NETHERWORLD Co-Founder Ben Armstrong. “The UNDYING HORROR is a continuation of the COSMIC HORROR saga that began when we first moved to Stone Mountain, and PARASITIC is a story of science gone wrong that features weird plant-based mutations of one of our classic characters, The Harvestman.”
 
Between the houses, NETHERWORLD has a new option for those who want to join in on the fright called “You Scare.” In this experience, true horror-lovers will get their shot at playing the villain by using a paintball gun, dubbed the “scare blaster,” to shoot paint at an unbreakable see-through barrier, startling those in line for the second haunted house.

 
In addition to both blood-curling haunts and “You Scare,” NETHERWORLD is launching a laser-based horror survival add-on experience for the first time ever. Titled “Alien Terror,” the experience will put NETHERWORLD adventurers face-to-face with an extraterrestrial monster that has one goal: to turn every player in the game into one of its evil minions with its laser weapon. The official opening date for this experience is to be announced, so stay tuned for more information!
 
The adventure continues with NETHERWORLD’s updated Midway experience, a Halloween-drenched area that attendees can explore featuring a myriad of creepy photo ops (including a huge new skeletal dragon), roaming creatures aplenty, and a variety of food options including hot dogs, nachos, demented donuts, and gourmet popcorn in flavors like classic butter and hot and spicy. This year NETHERWORLD is also introducing Dr. Octane’s Bizarre Beverages, where the sinister mad scientist Dr. Octane will serve up non-alcoholic bubbling concoctions featuring swirls of colors perfect for a share-worthy video!

 
"We are incredibly excited for veteran NETHERWORLD fans and first-timers alike to experience everything that we have to offer this year,” said NETHERWORLD Co-Founder Billy Messina. “Our goal has always been to provide visitors with a seasonal Halloween experience that’s beyond compare...and with all the upgrades we’ve made this year, both inside and outside the haunts, we hope that folks will feel that we’ve done exactly that.”
 
NETHERWORLD Haunted House will be open beginning the weekend of Sept. 23–24, then most dates through Halloween and weekends in November until the closing weekend on Nov. 11–12. Tickets are on sale now. For more details on the haunts and new additions and to buy tickets, visit 
www.fearworld.com
 
Continue for more information about this year’s two new haunts…  
 
THE UNDYING HORROR: Concealed in the chaos of a deadly storm, an ancient monstrosity launches massive tentacles to the surface world corrupting everything they touch! Can a battle-worn group of survivors fight their way past the legions of Wraiths and Netherspawn to defeat this nightmarish creature or will the world fall to The Undying Horror?   
 
Featuring: Warlike Wraiths, Rampaging Netherspawn, The Weird Lab of Dr. Squid, The Old One Arises, The Emergence of the Undying, The Monster-Infested Netherscape, The Undead Army of the Zombie Queen, The Swirling Mists of Zin, The Massive Tentacles of Ubbo Sathla, The Bone Beasts of Carcosa and Face to Face with the Undying Horror! A massive feast of nightmares invades a shattered planet as NETHERWORLD charges headlong into its 26th Season of Screams swarming with supercharged apocalyptic action!   

 
PARASITIC: A bizarre Parasitic plant-based life form filled with the twisted power of Planet X and grown on a discarded husk of The Harvestman springs to unnatural life in the top-secret facility known as the BOX! After infecting the staff with mind-controlling spores and unleashing an army of carnivorous plant and fungus-based creatures, it seeks vengeance on its foolish captors before attempting to escape into the world of men!  
 
Featuring: The Fungal Zombies, The Pit of The Green Slime, The Worm that Gnaws, The Monster that Challenged the World, Swamp Beast Horror, Deadly Nightshade, The Chlorophyll Killers, The Bloody Massacre of the Mutilated, Exo Biological Evil Unleashed, The Primeval Pawns of the Parasite, The Nightmare Run and Get to the Chopper! Will you and your team escape the terror that grows within you, or will you succumb to the unimaginable agony as you become one of the Parasitic legions? 

More details on tickets, as well as information on the expanded Midway and a new laser-based horror survival experience, will be unveiled in the coming weeks. Interviews with the NETHERWORLD team and photos are available upon request. 

 
About NETHERWORLD Haunted House: NETHERWORLD, Atlanta's most popular self-guided, dark attraction, is one of the most highly acclaimed Haunted Houses in the world.

The 4th Annual Brownie Bash is Coming!

Yep! 

It's time for the 4th annual Brownie Bash set for Saturday, September 24, 2022 at Pontoon's original location in Sandy Springs, GA! (8601 Dunwoody Pl. Sandy Springs, GA 30350) 

Here's all the info straight from the source. See you there!

Your homie, 

-------------------

Pontoon Brewing Company Announces 4th Annual Brownie Bash 

Saturday September 24th, 2022 1-5pm  

The 4th annual Brownie Bash is back and bigger than ever! For the first time, Pontoon Brewing is bringing in over 70 breweries from across the United States! This year we are partnering with Bottleshare, a nonprofit aimed to support industry workers and businesses when they experience hardship. 

This festival celebrates Pontoon Brewing’s annual release of its award-winning Barrel Aged Brownie Batter. The five-hour event will feature over a hundred beers from Pontoon Brewing and breweries from across the country, live music, killer food trucks from all over Atlanta and over a thousand craft beer fans!  

The goal of Brownie Bash is to make it a destination beer festival. Due to Georgia alcohol laws, the market is lacking the tourist attraction that similar markets have such as Tampa Bay Beer Week and Great American Beer Festival. Pontoon Brewing and Bottleshare are aiming to have Brownie Bash be the vessel that encourages breweries throughout Atlanta to come together and craft an experience for locals, tourists and more!  

Tickets are available through this website: https://www.pontoonbrewing.com/brownie-bash-2022.html

About Pontoon Brewing:  

Pontoon Brewing was founded in 2014 by a group of longtime pals and home brewers who are passionate about making awesomely scrumptious beer, the great outdoors, and pretty much anything on or near the water: what we dubbed the “Pontoon Lifestyle”. We soon found a home in Sandy Springs, GA and opened our brewery and taproom in 2017, becoming the first and only brewery in the city. The “Pontoon Lifestyle” will soon make its way to Tucker, GA in the Summer of 2022. Pontoon Brewing prides itself on putting our own brand of fun, unique, and often irreverent twists on traditional styles of beer. Pontoon Brewing’s beers are available in our Sandy Springs taproom, throughout the state of Georgia, central and south Florida, Louisiana, Tennessee, South Carolina, Minnesota, Iowa, Indiana and Wisconsin

Yep! It’s festival time and Live! at The Battery is doing their annual Brew Fest based at the center of The Battery Atlanta. Also recognized as the home of the Atlanta Braves, The Battery is set to throw down on Saturday, August 13 from 3-7 pm!

Oh! And one more homie is joining in: Me! That’s right, I linked up with Terrapin’s second brewery location based at The Battery alongside my dude Omari at Sports & Social to make a liquid masterpiece called Something To Saison! The name I came up with is paying homage to the iconic quote Andre 3000 fearlessly stated at the Source Awards when they won Best New Rap Group on August 3rd, 1995. You heard it here first!

Below is the official press release straight from the source. For tickets, hit this link up and I will see you there!

Opened in April 2017, Live! also plays host to some of Atlanta's most fun food and drink events, including their signature Atlanta Wine Walk each June, Brewfest in August and New Year’s Eve Live! celebration, plus weekly specials like Girls Night Out on Thursdays.

Terrapin Beer Co. began as a passion for beer between founders Brian “Spike” Buckowski and John Cochran. The two brewed and released their first beer in 2002, a Rye Pale Ale that went on to win a gold medal at the 2002 Great American Beer Festival (GABF).
