Sunday Stroll in Downtown Augusta

After eating lunch we went on a little walk down Broad Street. It’s a shame people don’t utilize the median parks in front of the Imperial and Miller Theater but I’m hoping the revitalization of the area will result in an influx of people hanging out there. Augusta is still holding on to Christmas but I’m ready to embrace the new year.

Brunch Date at Bodega Ultima

I hate to admit that I’ve become that person who orders the same one or two things every time we go to a restaurant but when it’s consistently good, it’s sort of hard to switch things up! This time I had the Basque, a croissant with egg, tomato, avocado and chorizo and Alex ordered the Ultima (more or less the same breakfast sandwich but with bacon and an amazing aioli sauce).

The Hive

One of my favorite things about the Hive is that they frequently host tap takeover nights. Unlike a traditional bar, they have 70+ beers on taps with handcrafted cocktails, wine, and sodas too. During a tap takeover, a brewery will come in and have several taps dedicated to their selection.

Colonial Times at the Living History Park

One of our favorite events of the year was this past weekend in North Augusta. We enjoyed all the new re-enactors at Colonial Times at the Living History Park this past Saturday. My favorite new addition were the grave robbers. It amazes me at just how convincing these actors are. They really commit to their parts and it makes the event a wonderful learning experience.

Record Store Day 2018

Saturday was Record Store Day so we headed out to Grantski's after a very full morning to try to score some of the records we saw promoted through the store's Facebook event. Top on my list was Michael Kiwanuka's special release called Out Loud! Unfortunately, the few copies the store had sold out before we were able to get there in the early evening. We did come home with a couple of gems, though!

Monday at The Masters

There's probably no other sporting event that creates the amount of side hustle we see in Augusta during Masters Week. People will rent their houses and take a week of vacation off of work to cash in on a part time job cleaning houses, chauffeuring patrons, setting up chairs, catering, and a million other hospitality-related tasks that you might be able to imagine. Despite the traffic, the hope of attending the tournament and the excitement surrounding the influx of tourists brings everyone in Augusta together for one incredible week each year.

Brunch at Hammond's Ferry Larder

Tucked away at the entrance of Hammond's Ferry, a new urbanist community in North Augusta, SC, you'll find a project from Manuel Verney-Carron called Hammond's Ferry Larder. Hammond's Ferry Larder, or HF Larder, as it's affectionately known, offers lunch and dinner options with brunch on Saturday mornings.

Arts in the Heart of Augusta

During the second weekend of September each year (which is, undoubtedly, the hottest weekend before the Fall season arrives), Downtown Augusta is home to the Arts in the Heart of Augusta Festival. Arts in the Heart is a three-day festival that celebrates global arts, food, and culture. There are various stages scattered throughout the core of downtown Augusta that highlight music, spoken word poetry, acting, and more. The Global Village located in the Augusta Common highlights food from over twenty different countries.
