Great news local readers! You’ll want to check out this fun event!
My Athens & Terrapin Beer Co. are teaming up for a belated celebration of the release of Terrapin’s Watermelon Gose this summer!, and the kids are invited! Join them for an afternoon of wallowing in everything a late Georgia summer has to offer — juicy melons, juicy beer and a good excuse to splash around in the sun.
This kid-friendly event will feature not only chefs but other local food folk offering a creation made with local watermelons, purchased from our farmer friends. They’ll also be decking out the Terrapin lawn with kiddie pools, a misting station and other fun water elements to keep everyone cool. Treehouse Kid & Craft will also be there, leading a children’s art activity!
Participating restaurants include Seabear, The Place, Ideal Bagel, Catch 22, The Savory Spoon, Panaderia Tacuari. Terrapin will be providing watermelon shandy stations, a unique cask beer and offering 16 different beers to sample.
A portion of proceeds from ticket sales for our Watermelon Party will benefit the Athens Farmers Market and the West Broad Farmers Market.
The event is on August 7 from 4:30-8pm. Our friends with My Athens have offered my readers a super deal! Kids get in free to the Watermelon Party with code mommyoctopus. How generous is that! Head on over now to get your tickets and don’t forget the discount code!
