Athens Today--July 6
Why does today feel like Tuesday?
Well, it looks as though the ever-popular, ever-excellent restaurant Five & Ten is moving from Lumpkin Street to a few houses north on Milledge. Theirs is the building where Hawthorne House was for a while, next to the Tri Delts. The plan was approved by the ACC Planning Commission Thursday night, with no opposition. Whatever the parking arrangement is there, it has to be better than what they were enduring on Lumpkin.
It's official: the Star-Spangled Classic was a big success. Thousands of people gathered in Bishop Park. Kids rode their decorated bikes and daddies pulled wagons. Some people ate Earth Fare's delicious birthday cake, others jumped on the inflatables. Everyone enjoyed the music and the fireworks. Can we do it again for Labor Day?
Don't forget the Athens Farmers Market is tomorrow from 8am until noon in Bishop Park. It's tomato time!
