One thing Five Points doesn't have at the moment is a Mexican restaurant. (No, Barberitos doesn't count. That's a burrito place. Those things are in different categories.)

Little Italy, in downtown Athens, seems like an ageless wonder, but tomorrow brings its 20th anniversary, with a big ol' celebration from 11 a.m. all the way until 3 a.m. That party includes: prices from 20 years ago ($1 slices, $5 subs, $1 drinks, including beer), a Pepsi sampling (calling attention to the restaurant's only real flaw) and giveaways (T-shirts, Braves tickets, gift certificates, etc.).
