The Black and Gold Meets the Red and Black

Shop in Downtown Athens

The Grill on College Avenue

Georgia Pride

Sanford Stadium

I am not acknowledging the score of the Vanderbilt – Georgia game or the number of hotdogs and pizza slices I ate this weekend, but I know it will hit me in the next day or so.

But on to the better part of the weekend:

Athens is a beautiful college town with strong school and greek pride. Greek Row displays the  plantation homes with Greco-Roman columns, meticulously manicured lawns and tailgates with alumni, family and friends. The shops, bars and restaurants that line Downtown Athens are all coated in University of Georgia gear. There isn’t a shop without red, black or bulldogs tattooed in its window display. Fans, also tattooed in Georgia pride, don’t mind giving Vanderbilt fans a good jeer – but all in good fun.

I apologize for the lack of pictures; it was a whirlwind weekend of meeting ZTA sisters (from both Georgia and Vanderbilt), learning the streets of Athens and attending the game.

The Only Black and Gold in a Sea of Red
