Terrapin Brewery, another frequently visited Athens attraction, is having a special weekend as well! In addition to their weekly Wednesday through Saturday brewery tours, this Saturday has been declared the 1st Annual IHNA Chili Cook-Off & Family Cookout! Bring the whole family for two of the most fun hours possible this weekend! From 5:30 - 7:30 p.m., hot dogs, hamburgers, side items, vegetarian options, and all of the chili made by the participating competitors will be served to guests ($7 per person or $20 per family). Live outdoor music by The Last Tycoon and a moon bounce will also be present on Terrapin's expansive grass. The proceeds will benefit Interfaith Hospitality Network of Athens (IHNA), which is a non-profit organization that works with a network of local congregations to provide emergency shelter and vital services for homeless families with children in Athens and Northeast Georgia. Bring the whole family to this event that will hopefully continue for many years to come!
