So the band I wrote about a few weeks ago plays at least one show a week, sometimes more, in Athens, Atlanta, and on occasion their hometown Social Circle. Tomorrow night they’ll be performing at a local restaurant whose goal is to provide local, freshly harvested and organically-grown food for its customers. It’s also a bar with a fantastic selection of regular and organic beers, wines, and cocktails.
I’m looking forward to the “Daily Harvest” on the restaurant’s menu – it changes every day according to what they’ve grown on their farm or brought in from local growers, as well as Yuengling lager (of course!) and Peak Organic Pomegranate Wheat. This restaurant really does a fantastic job of providing an enormous selection of beers, both regularly brewed and organically brewed, to match its selection of gourmet locally-grown dishes. I love it!
One of the things I love the most about Athens is its selection of restaurants like this one, especially downtown. There’s something for everyone! Whether vegetarian, local, 5-star, greasy, or chain, there’s plenty to choose from. If I want a sandwich I don’t have to walk very far to find at least five places which offer just what I’m looking for. For pizza? I won’t even go there. Sushi, tapas, noodles, wings or burgers, you can find any of them between Thomas Street and Pulaski Street.
And for a lot of these places there is live music either in the restaurant, or just above, below, or beside it in close proximity. It’s such a great scene for anyone, quiet or loud, hungry or thirsty, alone or in groups of as many as twenty or more. Athens is awesome. If you haven’t experienced downtown, I recommend coming in on any given night for a “normal night out” or for a special event, so you get to experience one of the many things the city is famous for! A concert, a parade, a bike race, or perhaps just to see the Christmas lights decorating every tree on the street during the winter months. It doesn’t get any better. I can’t wait for the fall and winter seasons to start. That’s when the fun stuff begins!
