The Love Shack is a funky old shack on the outskirts of Atlanta, Georgia, USA. It's a love getaway built under the ownership of the musical pop music band the B-52's in 1990. Fools are ordered to stay away, because love rules at the Lo-o-ove Shack!
The B-52's commissioned the Love Shack as a design-build project. They retained Grand Master Funk to serve as both the architect and the general contractor. Ground broke on February 14, 1990. The Love Shack was designed with a tin roof, a front porch, a hallway, a mattress, and copious amounts of glitter. Unfortunately, the design lacked an adequate HVAC system, causing the place to get as hot as an oven whenever frequented by guests. The structural integrity of the premises was questioned by building inspectors when, during a trial run, it was discovered that the whole shack shimmies when everybody's movin' around and around and around and around! Nevertheless, when construction finished on February 14, 1991, the Love Shack became an immediate success with the party-going public.
Purpose of the Love Shack
The Love Shack, baby, is a place where we can get together. Encouraged activities at the site include huggin' and a kissin', dancin' and a lovin'. Also, everybody's urged to get movin' and groovin' baby.
The owners of the Love Shack provide a shuttle service to help its patrons avoid drinking and driving. The shuttle is a Chrysler that's as big as a whale - it seats about 20. All patrons must use the shuttle to arrive and depart from the Love Shack.
As for the location, the exact whereabouts of the Love Shack are not known, as those who ride as passengers in the shuttle are blindfolded. However, the following is generally known to the public: Somewhere off of the Atlanta highway, there's a faded sign by the side of the road that says 15 miles to the... Love Shack! Also, well, it's set way back in the middle of a field; just a funky old shack. In 2009 the English singer Adele, adapted from a top-of-the-range computer (a Dell), was commissioned to build an access path for a very low fee. Consequently she has spent much time chasing pavements instead of appearing on stage, although she has invited her fans to vote on whether she ought to give-up on this challenging task.
It is even more difficult to get in to the Love Shack than it is to find it. First, no fools allowed. Second, you must bring your juke box money if you hope to get in. Third, it's extremely popular and the wait time can often be hours - on any given night, there are folks linin' up outside just to get down! Lastly - and this point cannot be overstated - patrons must bang, bang, bang on the door, baby, to get in. Often they will be commanded to knock a little louder, sugar, even after banging for close to an hour.
