There are so many exciting events coming up in Athens. I hope to make it to most of them. While grad school takes up a good portion of my time, I still try to make it to as many local events as possible. Last night I went and saw Alton Brown’s Edible Inevitable Tour at the Classic Center. It included songs, food standup and a Twitter Q & A.
It also helped that Brown had a promotional sale, with up to 50 percent off tickets, for UGA students and faculty. I decided to go last minute because of the discount. If Brown comes to your town, I recommend going to see his show, regardless of whether you’ve watched his Food Network shows. Along with Brown’s show, I have a number of events I hope to see before the end of the month. It’ll be a busy week, not to mention UGA’s Fall Break is on Halloween this year!
Oct 23-25: American Werewolf in London plays at Cine. Part of Schlocktoberfest, a horror movie fest at Cine, the film will play nightly in the theater downtown. Schlocktoberfest will also show the 1978 horror classic Halloween next week. Visit athenscine.com for more information on the fest.
Oct 25: Brew School at 1000 Faces Coffee will run from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The free session will teach participants how to use the Hario V60 dripper. It will be an interactive demo session, giving visitors a chance to test out the technique. There will also be pastries from The Comerian. I’d really like to go and check this event out.
Oct 31: The Wild Rumpus parade is back this year! This time it will be held on Halloween night. Any interested folks can join in the parade, lining up around 8 p.m. The group will walk all over downtown, showing off their floats and costumes. Wild Rumpus will culminate with a free concert after the parade. Plenty of after parties will also run later that night.
