Athens Fun

We headed to the beautiful city of Athens, OH this past weekend.

Because of the "did you check in" joke going on, I can tell you exactly where we went all weekend.....and I am now going to.

Friday Rob and I got up around 4 and decided to head to "brewfest".
This video will show you exactly what Brewfest was....





There was also a carshow involved somehow....which involved lots of men with their cars in the grass and the hoods open.


After that we needed to get out of the 100 degree heat and into some AC...so we went across the street to have a brew at the Smiling Skull (random I KNOW...but it was right there and I didnt want to spoil the fun for the next day by pre-visiting any of our old watering holes..)


Saturday, we headed up to Court Street for our Day of Athens Fun. First we headed to Bagel Street Deli (where I snuck in some Burrito Buggy)...


Next Stop was the CI:




Then came Lucky's where we had a midafternoon snack of some "world famous" cheesesticks. Followed by the pub, where we were lucky enough to score the cornerbooth and grabbed us some $3 aquariums (I heart Athens)....


Next up were "hot nuts" and darts at Tony's...



Followed by a slow and not delicious dinner at Broney's


Where Nickee got ICED!!!

After that we headed to the outdoor patio of Courtside and had a few drinks before making the always regrettable trip to the Junction. The boys played foosball while the girls pole danced (some of us more than others :) ) and of course sipped on junction punch.


Next up was pawpurrs followed by a little trip to Goodfellas (foursquare finally has a point!- besides helping me make this list, if you checked into goodfellas on 4square you got buy one get one free slices.....YES please!)

One final stop at the Cats Eye (as pictured, we made a stop somewhere in there for energy drinks for our old selves)- apparantly 29 year old bodies arent meant to bar hop for 12 hours.... yikes...


Then it was back home for the night....

The next morning we got a sweet table at the diner for a little diner food to sustain us for our 3 hour car ride home....and the new lovebirds split a milkshake :)



Whew....and that was our whirlwind Athens Trip.....
I had a great time... but I can't wait to go up again sometime soon for a more low key weekend with the lil sis :)
