If you're in town for the Georgia Governor's Tourism Conference this week, you'll find plenty to do and lots of fun while you're here.

Things to do while you're here:

Got kids? On Wednesday mornings The Book Tavern hosts Super Awesome Story-Time. Take the kiddos for free cookies and a story while you browse and shop with your Augusta Current-C. For more information - check out The Book Tavern on Facebook!

Love music? Rock band Adelitas Way with special guests Starset and Refuge Lost will play at Sky City in downtown Augusta on Thursday, September 4th. Doors open at 8 p.m. Music starts at 9 p.m. Tickets are $15 at the door. Sky City accepts Augusta Current-C!

Love books? The Book Tavern will have a book signing on Thursday, September 4th. For more information - check out The Book Tavern on Facebook!

Love food? Veritas wine & tapas bar at La Maison on Telfair in downtown Augusta hosts a wine pairing on Thursday evening. Get 4 wines paired with 4 tapas for only $25. Also, all week long, get a free dessert (coupon here) to satisfy your sweet tooth after dinner at French Market Grille in Surrey Center. Both restaurants will be on the dine-around on Thursday evening and accept Augusta Current-C.

Love to shop? The conference may end on Friday, but your visit to Augusta doesn't have to end yet! Stick around for another night and enjoy First Friday in downtown Augusta. The shops downtown stay open late. There's live music and art. It's awesome. And many of the downtown shops accept Augusta Current-C! Then, on Saturday, hit the Augusta Market for breakfast (you HAVE to try a Stuffed Puppy - it's a giant hush puppy stuffed with grits, eggs, cheese and sausage) or go for a guided hike at Phinizy Swamp Nature Park.

Augusta Current-C

Attendees registered for the full conference - make sure to hang on to your Augusta Current-C! While you're out downtown and at Surrey Center, look for the GTC Talk Bubble. Any business displaying it accepts Augusta Current-C.
