Plus, Adam Gajdharsingh of joined the show for our weekly Work Hard/Play Hard segment, highlighting events in Atlanta.

LEGOLAND Discovery Center Atlanta is a one of nine LEGOLAND Discovery Centers around the globe. The Atlanta location sits right in the heart of Buckhead on the third floor of Phipps Plaza. The attraction includes a LEGO 4D Cinema, a LEGO Master Builder Academy and much more for families to enjoy.

More than 10,000 shows have been presented at the Punchline, and thousands of comedians, both professional and amateur, have appeared in the original showroom in Sandy Springs. Some of comedy’s all-time legends and most recognizable names including Eddie Murphy, Robin Williams, Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld and dozens more have performed at The Punchline – creating a rich history and tradition that is unmatchable by any comedy club in Atlanta.

In the headlines:

  • Atlanta’s Godfather of angel investing, John Imlay Jr. has passed away. Imlay is best known for his company MSA, one of the most successful software companies in town. The company served as an incubator for technology executives and startup companies in Atlanta and is credited with birthing more than 300 CEOs and nearly 100 companies. Imlay was 78. He’ll be missed.
  • The Falcon’s still don’t know their exact punishment for piping in fake crowd noise during the last two seasons, but they do know it will be “severe.”
  • Boeing has denied that it will build any kind of incubator or tech innovation center in Atlanta.
  • The Georgia Senate has passed the bill that will force Uber and Lyft to act more like taxi companies.
