Families from all over will be celebrating UGA Graduation and Mother's Day this weekend, and we have some suggestions to help families spend quality time together with great attractions, dining, and of course live music, right here in Athens GA.
Keep Mom Out of the Kitchen:
Spend Time Together in Creative Ways
Artini's is offering two Mother's Day Sessions on Sunday from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. and 2-4 p.m. Kate Cook will guide you to paint a scene of beautiful yellow daffodils. Materials are provided and each session costs $25 per person.
Exhibits at the Georgia Museum of Art What a great opportunity to stroll through the expansive galleries at the Georgia Museum of Art! Exhibits include ancient and contemporary sculptures as well as a variety of other mediums from both the permanent and visiting exhibitions. The gallery is open Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.
Long-time Athens favorite Randall Bramblett is performing Friday, May 10 at the Georgia Theatre, just in time for Graduation and Mothers Day weekend. A jewel of Southern music, Randall Bramblett shines on his latest release, The Bright Spots, due out May 14 on New West Records. Fresh off the inclusion of one of his songs on Bonnie Raitt's Grammy-winning album Slipstream, he has put together a masterful recording soaked with the soulful feel that has defined his music and that of his Southern contemporaries like Gregg Allman and Warren Haynes.
Or, take the family to hear David Prince at Buffalo's Cafe Athens. Featuring a full menu and bar service as well as delicious Mother's Day specials, this is the perfect way to show your mom just how much you care. The show will be held Friday, May 10 at 7 p.m.
As always, be sure to check Athens Convention & Visitors Bureau's calendar of events for more ways to celebrate Mother's Day, Graduation, or any time of year. We hope you enjoy this special weekend with your loved ones!
