Don't miss out on the birth of Athens' newest music festival, Athens Slingshot! Featuring performances by more than 45 talented artists, this exciting event is bound to impress. And as if that isn't already appealing enough, Slingshot is partnering with some of Athens' most loved restaurants and hotels to offer discounts to those with wristbands the day of the event. Wristbands can be purchased ahead of time online or on Saturday at Little Kings Shuffle Club.
The Classic City Rollergirls will take on the Dixie Derby Girls this Saturday in a knock-down, drag-out, fight-to-the-finish event. In addition to the exciting race, there will be a special silent auction featuring one-of-a-kind rollergirl decorated bras in honor of BreastFest, a local organization whose mission is to raise awareness and generate money for breast cancer research, services, treatment and patient care. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. See you there!
