Augusta Calendar of Events: 9/19 – 10/6

Lunch at Edgar’s Grille

I finally made it to Edgar’s Grille for lunch the other day. What a treat! Great service and good food.

I had the Korean Beef and my friend Greg had the Shrimp Po Boy. The Korean Beef was a perfect lunch serving with a good mix of salty and sweet.

Greg said the sandwich was very tasty with super fresh bread. He also commented on the unique way to serve the fries (in a glass) and that it was just the right amount.

For dessert, I had to try the bread pudding. It is really hard for me to say no to a dessert that is served on fire.

Weekend Whirl

“Whirl (N): a rapid round of events, affairs, etc”

We all need a little mini-vacation sometimes and a weekend whirl to freshen things up is always fun. October in Augusta, Ga ushers in cool fall weather and plenty of ways to enjoy it. Downtown is in full swing with exhibits, concerts, performing arts and cultural festivals. So start planning your trip now for October 7th – 9th!

Friday Night

 untitled (indeciciveness)

What are you obsessed about? When you arrive on Friday evening, head over to the Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art for the reception of contemporary artist, Sarah Hobbs. Hobbs’ work explores phobias and obsessive compulsive behaviors through large scale installations which she constructs and photographs.

 After you’ve studied and contemplated Hobbs’ work…

 

Obsess over Botanica. Internationally acclaimed ballet company MOMIX has performed in cultural meccas around the world. Now they bring an exciting contemporary ballet to the historic Imperial Theatre. Botanica brings to life the small miracles that occur every day around us in nature using magnificent choreography and stunning dance effects.

 Obsess over food. End the evening with a late dinner at Frog Hollow. You’ll be able to talk about the night over a glass of wine and perfectly crafted meal made with fresh regional ingredients!

Saturday

Sleep in a little and grab breakfast before heading to the historic Summerville neighborhood for the Tour of Homes.

Frankly, my dear, you’ll really love these houses. Spend the afternoon touring Augusta’s most historic and eclectic neighborhood and you’ll start to feel like you’ve stepped into a scene from “Gone with the Wind.” The Summerville Tour of Homes offers a glimpse into some of the grandest homes and buildings in the neighborhood.

Follow the Crums. Grab an early dinner at the trendy Crums on Central. Make sure you try the Bacon wrapped Seafood Stuffed Mushrooms or a fire grilled pizza!

May the force be with you. Star Wars, Indiana Jones, E.T., Jaws – John Williams’ iconic musical compositions have punctuated the film industry for decades.  Now watch as the Symphony Orchestra Augusta brings each piece to life during the John Williams Spectacular.

Sunday

Hola amigos! Treat your taste buds to authentic Hispanic food and enjoy live music and performances at the annual Augusta Hispanic Festival in downtown at the Commons.

Our big fat Greek festival. Indulge your sweet tooth with homemade Baklava, shop at the bazaar and learn traditional Greek dances at the Augusta Greek Festival in the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church.

Antonio’s Pizza Doesn’t Disappoint!

Recently my mom introduced me to Antonio’s Italian Eatery. It’s about 5 minutes from downtown Augusta over the river in North Augusta.

You’ll recognize it from the cute red and white striped canopy shading the front entrance.

We went for lunch and ordered a White Pizza – garlic, olive oil, spinach and tomatos – and we were NOT disappointed!

The regular crust is perfectly salty, bready and a little crunchy. The toppings tasted fresh and flavorful. Since we ordered a 14 inch pizza, it took slightly longer than if we had ordered single slices, but having leftovers to take home for dinner made the wait TOTALLY worth it!

Inside was cool, clean and simply decorated and our server was very helpful.  

I plan on going back very soon to try their slice specials, which are super affordable and seem perfect for lunch!

Blue Sky smiling at me

It was a great lunch in downtown Augusta, Georgia today at Blue Sky Kitchen. Located at the corner of 10th and Broad, it is a great location just two blocks from the Savannah River. Today, I tried the Mojo Shrimp and Rice. Served with a little bit of asparagus and black beans, it was the perfect portion for lunch. They do have seating outside, but I dined inside and enjoyed the local art. The restaurant is locally owned and really gives a flavor and a feel you won’t get anywhere but Augusta. Another one of my favorites is the Redneck Stir-fry. Awesome. It includes rice, corn, butter bean, tomatoes and your choice of protein. It is fine without anything added, but I like to add the tilapia when I get it. But be hungry, it will fill you up. They even have a kids menu and highchairs, if you want to bring the family. No family with me today and was back to work in 45 minutes.
