Friday, June 10th
- Enjoy a happier hour at Nutwood Winery
- Rock any way you feel with Old Crow Medicine Show
- Finish strong with a nightcap at one of LaGrange's best watering holes
If you can leave work early and arrive in LaGrange with time to spare, head to Nutwood Winery and grab a glass of local wine before heading to Sweetland. Enjoy an appetizer of specialty meats and cheeses to hold you over and enjoy the picturesque views of the winery. The 200-year-old pecan trees on the property are the perfect backdrop to a Friday happy hour.
After 20 years of touring, 2 Grammy awards, and an induction to the Grand Ole Opry, Old Crow Medicine Show will be spending June 10th in LaGrange. Starting at 8 pm, the band will make their presence felt on stage at Sweetland Amphitheater. Originally from Harrisonburg, VA, Old Crow Medicine Show has an Americana sound that can’t be matched. Does Wagon Wheel ring a bell? Imagine hearing it live...We can’t think of a better way to spend a summer Friday night.
After a fun night out, why not wind down with a nightcap? LaGrange has some awesome spots to grab a drink with friends, but Wild Leap is a can't miss venue. Open until 11 on weekends, Wild Leap offers exciting craft beverages for a variety of tastes. For the classic bar experience, check out the Main Street Pub!
Rent a kayak and set off down the Chattahoochee River, enjoying the beautiful West Georgia scenery along the way. A day on the water is a refreshing way to unwind and spend time with friends and family, and Georgia does it better than most!
Explore eclectic antique stores, unique boutiques, and a variety of other shops. The awesome variety LaGrange has to offer means you're almost guaranteed to find your next treasure. Just save some antiques for the rest of us!
Choose one of the different lake access points to enjoy sitting in the sun or take a dip in the water. Bring a book and take some time for yourself. Pack a picnic at home or grab food from a local restaurant like a pizza from Karvela’s or hotdogs from Charlie Josephs’ and enjoy a picnic lunch by the water.
One of the best ways to enjoy LaGrange and certainly a local favorite is The Thread -- a walking, running, and biking path that winds through LaGrange. Take your time in exploring the different parts of The Thread, seeing beautiful neighborhoods, historic homes and lush green spaces along the way. Enjoy a stroll with friends or take your little ones to ride their bike or scooter. Enjoy a slow Sunday and grab a coffee, and a homemade pastry of course, at Local Groundz, located conveniently on The Thread.
Sunday is the perfect day to try out local brewery and restaurant, Beacon. Whether you would rather grab brunch with friends after your morning stroll on the Thread or enjoy the live music during happy hour from 4-7, Beacon makes sure your Sunday won’t be boring. Be sure to come hungry and ask the staff about daily specials and their brewed-in-house beers.
You started the weekend with live music so why not end it that way too? Spend your Sunday evening with Kim Richey at Pure Life House of Music. A country singer-songwriter, Richey first came onto the music scene in the 1990s. While her name may not be immediately familiar to you, her songs probably are. Richey has written hits for Trisha Yearwood (“Believe Me Baby (I Lied)”), Radney Foster (“Nobody Wins”), and Brooks & Dunn (“Every River”). Tickets start at $25 for this amazing show.
