Uptown Love You Up

Love is in the air today in uptown Athens as businesses up and down Court Street and beyond prepare for Valentine’s Day traffic by offering romantic, one-day only, specials.

Be sure to get a good stretch in before any romantic events with a “Heart Warming Slow Flow” yoga session at Athens Yoga Studio at 77 E. State St. starting at 6:45 p.m.  Namaste.

There’s no more classic romantic evening than dinner and a movie.  Knowing that, the Athena Cinema at 20 S. Court St. is holding a screening of the cult classic Harold and Maude at 7:30 p.m. and 9 p.m.  Let’s all go the lobby.

And for dinner, what could be more romantic than a classy, Italian meal with your beloved?  Franco’s Pizza at 42 S. Court St. is offering $1 thick slices, as opposed to its normal thin crust, New York style slices, on this lovely day.  

Now it’s time to exercise off those pizza slices and heart-shaped chocolates.  What better way to melt off the pounds than dancing? The Union Bar at 18 W. Union St. is having a “Ballumtines Day Bash” featuring perfomances by Slut Castle, Harlot, Eric Lewandowski “and more!” according to the venue’s Facebook page.

Now it’s the end of a long, romantic evening.  But before you kiss your sweetheart goodnight, be sure to take a stroll down Court Street to enjoy the sights and sounds the hurricane that is the meeting of Thisty Thursday and Valentine’s Day.  Much love.
