This fall I had the pleasure of co-writing the Design*Sponge City Guide with my friend Natasha for my beloved home of the past eight years, Athens, Georgia.
It was difficult to narrow down all of our great local businesses, so we let the aesthetic of Design*Sponge and their average reader guide our decisions. These are the places we'd recommend to a friend visiting town, so these are the places our coworkers, our friends, and the two of us frequent the most. Special thanks to Rinne Allen for looking over our notes and tipping us off to additional points of interest for Design*Sponge fans. For a more complete guide to Athens businesses, check out Flagpole's annual Guide to Athens.
If you're ever in my city, give me a shout!
