Two weeks ago, Hubs and I went kayaking down the Broad River with some friends. The night before, we were all child-free and felt a little squirrelly, so we hit up the Athens bar scene with all the twenty-somethings (we were SOOOO the old people in the bar) and had some bevvies. It was awesome, weird and comforting to be in all of our old haunts, some of them renovated, flipped, and under new management. Others were just as we remembered them; same drink offerings and 1″ thick grime from years of bar-love.
What really grabbed my attention? This sandwich board sign tucked inside the door to an old renovated bar. The old “Arch Bar” had a happy hour… and it was right MEOW. I was sold. I dragged Hubs in by the arm and plunked myself down. If you have seen Super Troopers, you’ll know why it grabbed me.
And then I made him order a cat beer. It was good meow. Really good.
Any good cocktails where you are?
