Where do you think those NBA All-Stars will be hanging out this week? 

Shina: They'll first shop at Friedman's Shoes, because you know they need their big shoes. They'll eat [soul food] at Sylvia's, Blue Pointe [Grille]. They'll going to go all over: Phipps Plaza, Lenox -- especially Gucci and Armani. After the Gold Club went down, I don't think they'll be at the strip clubs too much. I think they'll be more at the nightclubs, like Visions, Vegas Nights and 112. And Shaq's giving a party at Woodruff Arts Center, so you know they'll be there.

Dana: Chaos. I know that Charles Barkley hangs out there. I've seen Barkley at eleven50, too. They'll probably stay at the Four Seasons and eat at the Palm. That's the high end -- and they've got the money. I'm sure a few will partake at the VIP Room at the Cheetah. I've seen other athletes in that room, and they appear to be enjoying themselves. And I'm sure they'll see the shoe guy [Friedman's]. It's great for Atlanta and those in the service industry. People are still watching their pennies so when a big event comes in, people have a reason to go out and spend money.

Ty: They'll hit up Lenox mall. Clubs like Level 3, Velvet Room, Vegas Nights, they'll be doing some. And they're going to watch some tail. You got Magic City, down here by the Greyhound, you got the Blue Flame, you got Cheetah, you know Atlanta is the home of the "shake it up." They got a lot of tail shakin' down here. Maybe a good eight strip clubs they go to around here. I know [to eat] they're going to Houston's. Puff Daddy -- P. Diddy -- he has a lot of clubs down here; they'll eat at Justin's. Buckhead is going to do a lot of business. They got all the exquisite five-star, six-star restaurants. It's going to bring a lot of money in.
