A Little Something Extra
Wine lovers in the CSRA have a variety of options when it comes to wine tastings. Wine World in North Augusta offers tastings the first Friday and the third Thursday of each month. Ninth Street Wine Market in downtown Augusta holds tastings monthly, either the first or second Monday of the month (call)706-724-4112). In Evans, Vineyard Wine Market hosts tastings every Friday from 4:30-6:30 p.m. and Saturday from 2-6 p.m. And Evans Towne Market holds tastings each Friday from 6-8 p.m.
Coming in 2013
Plans are underway for Whole Foods Market to open in Augusta in late 2014. The natural and organic supermarket will open in the Washington Crossing Shopping Center near I-20 on Washington Road. The chain’s motto—Whole Foods, Whole People, Whole Planet—emphasizes a vision that reaches beyond being a food retailer.
Build Your Bowl
The Texas-based Genghis Grill chain has opened a location in Augusta at 250 Robert C. Daniel Pkwy., in the space formerly occupied by Souper Salads. The fast-casual restaurant features Mongolian stir-fry and diners can choose Genghis specialties or can build their own “bowl.”
