The Holidays are over and I've recuperated - have you? It's been kind of nice to snuggle up in the house during the cold snap the last few days, catch up on some great books and enjoy my family, but now I'm searching for something fun to do in Athens, GA - the Classic City of the South! Here are my picks for the next couple of weeks!
