In The Heat Of The Night Vol. 3: Don’t Sleep


We are working with the ingenious brewmasters at Bingo! Beer Co. and sending our team of photographers is set to roam the buzzing streets of the city, weekend after weekend, immersing ourselves in the vibrant vein of nightlife that surges past the bewitching hour of 10 pm.

This week, our crew of CJ Payne, Jody Adams, and Mike Avey plunged into the epicenter of the action. They set forth on a sacred journey to the revered dive that is Fuzzy Cactus, ascended to the rooftop of The Hof to bask in the sonic tapestry woven by DJ Aimée Lauren, and reveled in the rhythmic euphoria of Black Techno Matters at The Jungle Room. They were also lured by the lively beats echoing through Gallery5’s halls and the warm, late-night embrace of Helens. And let’s not forget, they made a quintessential pit stop at the abode of our allies, Bingo! Beer Co.

Are you itching for us to waltz into your haunt, shindig, clandestine meet-up, or maybe you’ve got a keen eye and fancy taking the camera reins? Give us a shout at
