Charlie Brown 

Atlanta’s nightlife institutions seem to be vanishing, unless you count the drive-thru Krispy Kreme on Ponce. After the city moved up last call, MR. CHARLIE BROWN could have disappeared. For 14 years, Charlie Brown and his team of female impersonators performed at Backstreet until the 24-hour finally shut down last year. Rather than shed mascara-coated tears, Charlie Brown’s Cabaret opened as its own venue in Underground Atlanta, where performers dazzle audiences Thursday-Sunday nights. In addition to the regular lineup of Shawnna Brooks, Lena “HotDamn” Lust, Heather Daniels, Lauren LeMasters and Ashley Kruiz, Charlie hosts the popular “Drag Idol” contest, which brings fresh faces to the stage. And the newbies can learn a thing or two from Mr. Brown, who serves up jokes like Krispy Kreme doughnuts: delicious and hot.

Charlie Brown’s Cabaret, Underground Atlanta, 50 Upper Alabama St. 678-904-4811. www.charliebrownscabaret.com.
