Ike & Jane Café and Bakery – Athens, Georgia – 02/27/2019

We drive through super funky Normaltown almost every single day that we are in town. It is, hands down, our favorite neighborhood in Athens, Georgia. Ike & Jane Café and Bakery has been on our to-do list since we moved in. Today was the day! And it was an extra fun time to go because they were in the midst of celebrating their Tenth Anniversary, and I never say no to a Birthday Cake Latte! Trillian had a Raspberry Mocha, and Grandma kept it simple with her Hazelnut Mocha. Our drinks were great, but we all agree, the heart of…

UGA Baseball – Athens, Georgia – 02/23/2019

We are definitely a family of Baseball Lovers! It is our ultimate goal to get to a home game for every MLB team and fully experience each team’s home ballpark; but we also really enjoy checking out a variety of college teams as well. Today, we caught the University of Georgia Bulldogs taking on the University of Massachusetts Lowell River Hawks. We have a house rule that wherever we are, we root for the Home Team. But, we do have a soft spot for Lowell, Massachusetts, and, of course, anything with the word “River” in it’s name is going to…

Friendly Neighborhood Heathens – Athens, Georgia – 02/16/2019

The best part of having Athens, Georgia as a home base is all our fabulous neighbors! It’s always a pleasure to work with area non-profit, Nuci’s Space, to help further their mission of making mental health resources, as well as medical resources, more readily available for area artists and musicians that may otherwise find themselves without proper access to such services. Throughout the year, Nuci’s Space holds many fundraising events, dinners, auctions, concerts, and more. We always do our best to support their efforts. And our favorite annual event is the Drive-By Truckers HeAthens Homecoming Pre-Party and Auction. It’s always…

Nama Sushi Bar – Knoxville, Tennessee – 02/14/2019

Happy Valentine’s Dinner to Me! I did get to the hotel a little later than anticipated tonight, so I had to get my dinner as a to-go order. It might not be plated as it would be in a dine-in experience, but I thought it was still pretty! And it was definitely delicious! Short of getting soy sauce on the sheets, sushi and Big Bang Theory is an excellent combination for a Mother’s Night Out!
