Thursday at 4PM, what may be the oldest original Coca-Cola wall paintings will be shown to the community in an event to be attended by officials from Coke! Free cokes while they last. You may have seen the picture I posted earlier before the entire drawing was exposed. Hidden behind a plaster wall for over 100 years, the iconic Coke painting is in great condition.
Friday Night is the Semi-Annual “On The Tracks, a Food and Wine Event”. I have a friend that always calls it “Wine on the Tracks”, so if you hear that name, it’s the same event. A Wine Tasting trail weaves thru the downtown to various shops. You can usually find a craft beer or two along the trail as well. Fun event and always draws a great crowd. Music outside as well. I know that Uncle Sweetheart & The Salem Two will be outside of John Emerald Distillery for the evening.
Opelika High is also on the road on Friday, with a short trip up the road to Valley.
After Auburn’s win against LSU, the team heads off to Starkville to play Mississippi State who also comes off a Big Win against Texas A&M.
The following week, I’m off to Talladega for some NASCAR fun and will miss the USA Team Handball games that weekend. The team is practicing at Auburn and will play several games against Puerto Rico. This is the team that will participate in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio. I’ll have more on that in a later post.
