Athens, OH 10 December 2018 –
As my fifth and final fall semester comes to a close, I’ve been making it a point to experience everything Athens. Taking walks through campus with an awareness and mindfulness of my surroundings, spending cold days in Donkey with a hot cup of coffee, and even trying out new restaurants.
In spirit of this, I treated my roommate to a holiday wine tasting at Athens Uncorked this past Friday for her graduation. It was our first time at the location, and as fifth year seniors, figured it would be a nice alternative to the chaos of Court Street or a night studying at Alden.
We were surprisingly the only college students there for the first few hours. The setting was a little surreal, but the unfamiliar feeling was almost comforting. After a little while, the place was full of people and holiday cheer! We indulged in a cheese plate and hummus, sipped on samples of wine, and enjoyed one another’s conversation.
Altogether, we were extremely satisfied with the evening and went home smiling. It was bittersweet knowing it was our last weekend in Athens together, but it was well worth it.
If you are of age and looking to enjoy a hidden gem of Athens, I highly recommend checking out Athens Uncorked for a quiet evening and great service.
