The first night we stayed up late talking, catching up, and planning blog things. As you do. But on Saturday we wasted NO time (we slept in) checking out the food scene. First we went to a great Mexican place for lunch. Hole in the wall Mexican places are the best, and Cali n’ Titos was no exception.
On Saturday when we were driving into town, Molly casually mentioned Trader Joe’s and I think I might have lost my cool for a minute. There isn’t a single Trader Joe’s in the entire state of Alabama, they finally announced that we’re getting one, and it doesn’t open until LATE 2015. So we stocked up on cookie butter. (I got one of each.)
We finally found a place that had less than an hour wait, and oh man was it an excellent choice. If you’re ever in Athens and want some good southern food that is a little bit on the fancy side, definitely check out South Kitchen + Bar. I think it’s kind of a newer restaurant, but it’s in this cool old building with stained glass windows, sparkly chandeliers, delicious cocktails, duck fat tater tots, truffled mac and cheese, grilled orange blossom and honey glazed chicken, I could just keep on keepin’ on.
Tomorrow, I will be at the gym.
