Hello world!

Hi everyone!

I'm the new PR intern for the Athens Convention and Visitors Bureau so I thought I'd introduce myself a bit so you know who's writing to you! My name is Kenimer Highsmith and I'm a senior Agriculture Communication major at UGA. My major has shown me a new world I'd never seen before and its encouraged me to continue to step out and explore new things, which is what I hope to do my last semester of college. So far, everything I know about Athens is great but there is so much that I don't know about and have never experienced. For the next couple of months I'll be going to some new places around town and enjoying all the culture and excitement this college town has to offer. I'm open to all suggestions along the way. If there's a cool restaurant, band, convention, or exhibit let me know and I'll try to check it out! Thanks for reading and loving Athens too!

Hey, Kenimer. I'm a prospective PhD student coming to Athens to visit UGA. Do you have any suggestions for a good place to hang out, eat, and drink after the Punch Brothers concert on Saturday Feb, 19?

Hi Jeffrey,

There are so many places in Athens, I recommend trying a little of everything while you're here. But these are some of my favorites that really give you a feel of what Athens is all about!

For a real taste of Athens, try Farm 255 for a delicious and local meal. A bonus is live music on the weekends, plus its right around the corner from the 40 Watt Club for more late-night fun!

If you're a beer lover, Trappeze can't be beat, with over 30 brews on tap.

For a late night craving, Clocked has the best burgers in town. On the other end of the spectrum, The Grit offers full-flavored, hearty vegetarian fare. The Last Resort and The National are more local favorites.

Check out our calendar of events and Flagpole's in case there are any other high profile events going on while you're in town!

There are tons of places to visit in Athens, so for more information be sure to check out and

Have fun!!
