One of the best concerts in Athens, Georgia is absolutely free.  What's the catch, you might ask?  Locals know to report to The Classic Center box office prompty at 10 a.m. on Monday, two weeks prior to the event, to pick up their free tickets.  Each person may receive up to four tickets, so couples from outside Athens just need to reach out to their Athens pals to pick up an extra pair-- then, make plans for dinner and a great evening out!
