Looks like the minor league team is out of town this week. Otherwise, that's a really good time.

Harvest Moon was always the liveliest place in Rome when I was frequenting it, but it's probably been 5 or so years. Decent food/beer.

re: Rome, GA
OK. Food recs-

Harvest Moon is decent. La Scala for Italian and El Zarape for Mexican. All 3 are on Broad Street which you can walk up and down. Aventine is more upscale and is also on Broad. There's also a Mellow Mushroom and Jefferson's (wings/burgers/beers) for a more casual eating experience. Also, highly recommend Jerusalem Grill for Greek/Mediterranean if you like that type food.

Non-tennis stuff to do-

Little River Canyon is fun, but about an hour away, so keep in mind. Floating the Etowah is fun to do. River Ratz (LINK /) is the company to call; they offer tubes and kayaks, plus free shuttle. Berry College is right near the tennis center and lots of folks like to hike around their campus.

Cartersville is about 30 minutes away and offers the Etowah Indian Mounds to explore and the Telus Science Museum.

What other activities would you want to consider doing on your down time? I can offer suggestions to those as well.

Duffy’s Deli has about 15 varieties of chicken salad.
Downtown area is worth walking around.

Cartersville:
Appalachian Grill
Ate Track Restaurant
Booth Western Museum

Those are very helpful suggestions

We generally like to eat and drink

I thought the tubing looked like something we would all enjoy. Probably not going to travel outside of Rome due to time restrictions

Do you know anything about the foundry? Looks like it has a good beer selection

I enjoyed waking around Berry, seeing the deer, biking and hiking. Drove to Cave Springs one afternoon and checked it out.

I've driven through here a lot. I've always wanted to stop and kill a day here. Perhaps open aa brewery there and retire.

The Foundry is pretty good.

There’s also a place called River Dog Outpost at the end of Broad that has a decent beer selection as well.

Funny story about Duffy’s.

The lady who founded Chicken Salad Chick used to work there. It is alleged she ripped off a bunch of their recipes and started her business. She ain’t real highly regarded around these parts.

Fun fact about Ate Track and Appalachian Grill.

The Ate Track owner was married to the Appalachian Grill owner. They got divorced and she opened Ate Track to give him the middle finger. Bonus- it’s right next door.

Duffy’s puts the Chick to shame. She may have the recipes but she cannot replicate them.

I like Ate Track better than Appalachian.
