ATLwood: Anthony Bourdain and Alton Brown visit the Clermont

Alton Brown made me go

Bourdain and Blondie


Anthony Bourdain tweeted about his excursion to the Clermont with (Atlanta resident!) Alton Brown (filming, I believe, for the Travel Channel show “The Layover”): “‪@altonbrown‬ , Blondie and Clermont Lounge. History made tonight! ‪#Atlanta‬!” and later (as many of us have experienced for ourselves) “I smell of bourbon, tobacco, stripper perfume and it’s all @altonbrown ‘s fault. #scrippshoward has a lot to answer for.”

Filming Updates

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has been filming all over town, including at a warehouse near the intersection of I-20 and I-75 as well as the Goat Farm (here’s a pic). The crew was also filming at the Marriott Marquis Monday (and check out Casting Calls below to see how you could be an extra!)

Scary Movie 5 has been filming at 4016 Indian Town Rd in Marietta, with a Base Camp at Trickum Rd & Shallowford Rd.

— “The Vampire Diaries” is currently filming in studio in Decatur (last year I quite literally ran into the cast — I knocked into Paul Wesley — at FLUX Night, an art event in Castleberry Hills on Saturday, so stop by and see if you spot them or anyone else, and of course let me know!)

— “The Walking Dead” has been filming on Main St in Senoia. You can also check out a ton of photos from the set taken by fans at Walking Dead Locations.

— A movie called “The Start Up” (which I have no other info on, does anyone else?) is filming at the Gold Club on Lindbergh.
