Food Stuff

Food Stuff

It’s been 12 years since Tricie Scholer and her family opened Wild Wing Café in a busy stretch of Washington Road. Some thought that, like its brew pub predecessor, it wouldn’t last much longer than a year. Tricie and company proved the doubters wrong, however, and diners still fill up its massive parking lot several […]

This Week’s Whine Line

This Week’s Whine Line

Are we fighting for the right to be ignorant? Black Lives Matter should be at Paine College protesting the sorry administrators and Trustees. Obviously, the black lives do not matter to the leaders who have betrayed the students. Only in Disgusta would you cram all of the festivals into 3 weeks in September and leave […]

An Evening with The Lady Chablis

An Evening with The Lady Chablis

It’s hard to believe that more than 15 years have passed since John Berendt’s novel of Savannah intrigue, “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil,” first propelled an unlikely candidate to international stardom. For the past decade, the popularity of The Lady Chablis — the sassy, transgender nightclub performer, who stepped from the pages […]

Three to Watch

Three to Watch

For the next several weeks, not one person in the Augusta area should be allowed to complain, “There is nothing to do in this town.” Visitors to the downtown area and beyond will not be able to walk more than a few blocks without running into some amazing shows, enthusiastic artists or incredible food during […]

It’s Fall, Y’all!

It’s Fall, Y’all!

While we can’t expect a drastic drop in temperatures, the lack of humidity we’re experiencing now that September has rolled around makes the air feel downright crisp. That alone may put an extra spring in the step of the average Augustan. Add to that the vast number of events headed our way in the next […]

Remembering Sept. 11, 2001

Remembering Sept. 11, 2001

As everyone is enjoying their long Labor Day weekend, people should remember the fact that next Sunday will be 15 years since the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the United States. It’s hard to believe, but many school-age children weren’t alive or have no recollection of that terrible day. They know very little about the […]

Augusta loves “The Big Mo”

Augusta loves “The Big Mo”

If you are looking for something fun to do this upcoming three-day weekend, The Big Mo will be celebrating its 18th Annual Labor Day Weekend Triple Feature Extravaganza on Sept. 2-4. While most of the legendary outdoor screens that saw many American couples through their first kiss have long ago been converted to retail property […]

Happy Anniversary, Metro Spirit!

Happy Anniversary, Metro Spirit!

Ever since the Metro Spirit began back in 1989, informing Augusta about the latest events and entertainment offered here locally has always been a top priority. For the past 27 years, the Metro Spirit has been the go-to guide to what is happening across the Augusta area. But when Metro Spirit publisher Joe White purchased […]

Goolsby’s Fight Against the Golf Hall of Fame

Goolsby’s Fight Against the Golf Hall of Fame

This past week, the Metro Spirit ran a cover story about the long, sordid history of the former Georgia Golf Hall of Fame property on Reynolds Street. After reading the feature, several local citizens recalled the story of Mildred Goolsby, who once owned the Riverwatch Convenience Store, formerly Mildred’s Lottery, on 13 St. in downtown Augusta. […]
