So what is there to do in At­lanta to cel­e­brate New Year’s Eve? Maybe you will find me tak­ing pho­tos along with my fam­ily at the Heretic for their an­nual

with open­ing DJ Mike Pope, head­lined by DJ Alexan­der and hosted by the fab­u­lous An­gel­ica D’Paige. If that doesn’t in­ter­est you, al­most ev­ery bar in At­lanta will have some­thing for your lik­ing. What I love about At­lanta is that you might not know what to do, but there is a plethora of events that one can do. You can go down­town and see the at the new lo­ca­tion in Woodruff Park or head down to

for their huge live NYE party that in­cludes live mu­sic and food.

Hon­estly, I think that this year for me I will try to en­joy the evening with fam­ily and maybe rest up a lit­tle be­cause, to be hon­est, the party re­ally is on New Year’s Day. I am more of a soc­cer fan but bitch when I tell you Jan. 1 is the day to party and en­joy with friends, it is! I can think of at least five foot­ball games hap­pen­ing that day, from the

to the I have been in­vited to more tail­gat­ing par­ties around these games than to cel­e­brate New Year’s, which is just crazy!

One thing I am totes look­ing for­ward to do­ing on New Year’s Day is to make a list like many of you do about what goals I want to achieve in 2018 and where do I want to take my brand Just Toby — all while watch­ing the in­fa­mous in Pasadena Cal­i­for­nia. It’s a tra­di­tion of mine and many across the coun­try to watch it; its al­most like see­ing the Macy’s Thanks­giv­ing Day Pa­rade. The whole pa­rade brings a lot of joy and in­spi­ra­tion be­cause it takes so many peo­ple to cre­ate such amaz­ing floats and it re­ally makes me think of things I could po­ten­tially do dur­ing the year.

Oh wait, there is an­other thing I re­ally want to share with you all, and that is a project I am col­lab­o­rat­ing on called

This is a new on­go­ing weekly show at the Heretic cre­ated by

Party Peach Drop tery At­lanta Rose Bowl Rose Pa­rade Wed­nes­day We Drag. Ge­n­e­sis White Peach Bowl! The Bat- On

Drag Mom Pro­duc­tions. The per­son be­hind this is Martha Cald­well, the mother of Bob the Drag Queen, win­ner of Sea­son 8 of “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”

The amaz­ing part of this project is that it’s an early show were many can at­tend with­out stay­ing out too late dur­ing the week. Bob the Drag Queen will be per­form­ing at the Jan. 3 show — I have worked with him a few times and he is such a ta­lented queen. I re­mem­ber be­ing a fan of his way be­fore he got into “Drag Race” and I am still a fan be­cause the bitch makes me laugh and for­get about ev­ery­thing else go­ing on.

Oh and should I men­tion that there is one show that has the same ef­fect and that is

cre­ated by Edie Cheezburger. It was at the Jun­gle on Fri­day nights be­fore the club closed last month. I can’t tell you much about the fu­ture plans, but you bet­ter know that this show will pop up again in 2018 and it’s go­ing to be amaz­ing; just make sure to ei­ther fol­low them on Face­book or get any up­dates on my Face­book page.

For now, I’m go­ing to leave you all with best wishes and deep­est grat­i­tude for all your sup­port, and I hope 2018 starts off with a bang!
