Next time you don’t feel like cooking and really don’t feel like leaving the house, you don’t have to order pizza or have cash on hand to get great delivery right to your door.
Augusta To Go is a delivery service that can bring you a wide variety of cuisines right to your doorstep, for a small delivery fee, at all hours. It’s perfect for home or the office, and even though some chains are on their list (Firehouse Subs, Jersey Mike’s), local restaurants are available for you as well. Try barbecue from Southbound Smokehouse or Greek and Mediterranean cuisine from Ephesus Greek &Turkish Restaurant.
You can see their entire selection at www.AugustaTOGO.com.
WHAT’S TRENDY. Zara, the Spanish low-cost high-fashion line that has been so popular over the past 10 years, has launched a little sister brand in the U.S., Bershka. It’s kind of a mix of Forever 21, Asos, and Lulu’s - you won’t find anything that will last a lifetime, but the pieces have a currentness that allow you to participate in hot trends without breaking the bank. The launch has come with some great discounts, and most prices hover around $15 to $40.
WHAT’S AFFORDABLE. Hope House, the local residential substance misuse and mental health facility, is having a Halloween-themed fundraiser on Oct. 27 at Julian Smith Casino: a 1930s-themed “Murder and Mocktails Mystery Night.”
Entertainment is a whodunnit mystery show, where guests get to dress in ’30s costumes and guess who they think did the deed. Prizes, food, performers, raffles, games, and nonalcoholic Mocktails will be available, all to benefit a local organization that has done a lot of good for our area.
Local bakeries will compete in a bake-off judged by WJBF’s Barclay Bishop and Fat Man’s Cafe owner Havird Usry.
Tickets are $55 and you can get more information by emailing email@example.com or by going to www.classy.org/augusta/events/murder-mocktails-night-mystery/e119850.
