Describe your typical Bulldog game day:
Game day now includes our three boys. It always starts with dropping my mom, Linda, at her longtime friend Jeanne Argo’s home in Athens. We then head on to our favorite tailgate spot in the parking deck. We arrive just in time for the Dawg Walk and a trip to the bookstore before the game starts. It ends with a trip to DePalma’s and a night at the Hotel Indigo.
Share a tailgate recipe: My go-to is always a cheese tray with a Savannah Bee Co’s honeycomb, Thomasville Tomme cheese from the Sweet Grass Dairy and my fave cranberry crackers.
