I was in Athens most of last week for a Librarian Conference (please, contain your excitement!) Actually, it was really a good time and I've got a whole new bag of tricks to try on my students.
So, Tavo and I took it easy over the weekend and just enjoyed seeing each other after a week apart. Saturday morning, we went to Oakland Cemetery's "Run Like Hell" 5K. We were supposed to meet our friends there--but never actually found them. So I ran it and we headed back to the house to paint trim (Tavo) and read a book in the sun (me--yep, I'm usually the lazy one!)
We had some friends over in the evening and I walked up to the local liquor store instead of driving to the nice store. Our local liquor store is a VERY SKETCHY establishment complete with dirty bulletproof Plexiglas separating myself and the random homeless patrons from the selection of liquor and the clerks who know absolutely nothing about liquor whatsoever. So, after wiping a clean spot on the glass--I spied a 10% off shelf, and had the clerk read the price on each before settling on a handle of Old Hickory Bourbon. Have you ever heard of this? It has a picture of Andrew Jackson on the label.
At any rate, it was very dusty, probably 25+ years old, and $15. Works for me. We did a good job on it--and no one was hungover the next day, so all in all it was actually quite good bourbon. I even jogged Sunday morning.
In the afternoon, we went to Fontaine's, in the Virginia-Highlands section of Atlanta. That's 1026 1/2 N. Highland Ave, to be exact. We actually got there just in time for Happy Hour and enjoyed 1/2 price crab legs and $2 Sam Adams. Perfect! The food was delicious, too. Here's a slightly ethereal picture of me enjoying my clam chowder and eyeing Tavo's ginormous muffaletta. (I'm stealing his tator tots with my fork)
Delicious! Hope all of you had a good weekend.
