NOMENCLATURE MUSEUM'S FOUR-YEAR ANNIVERSARY -- Celebrate the birthday of Atlanta's best house club (in the literal sense) -- home to fashion shows and fashion victims, art shows and tasteless displays. Some of the city's best house (in the descriptive sense) and downtempo DJs -- including J-Luv, Ulises, Chris Leclair, Kolia, Alex King, CIC and Bethany -- make the walls sweat and the crowd wet. Enjoy kabobs and frozen drinks on the patio and scorching tunes on the dance floor. Nomenclature Museum (Ware)
