In this week's issue, we reveal the 2019 Flagpole Athens Favorites winners—the local businesses our readers voted as being the most magical in town. Last night at Little Kings Shuffle Club, we celebrated with lots of this year's winners and runners-up. Congrats to this year's Favorites! Check out photos from the party below, courtesy of contributor Zach Tate:
Spectators gathered at Athens Arena Saturday evening for Fight Night, where local and regional boxers faced off in the ring. The event also featured an award presentation, as Athens' Keppner Boxing was named best gym in Georgia by USA Boxing.

A highlight of Athens' holiday season, the Downtown Parade of Lights returned Thursday, Dec. 6, featuring an impressive selection of festive floats (though, sadly, Rotisserie Jesus was nowhere to be found).
Thousands of Athenians and visitors celebrated Halloween by letting their freak flag fly at the 10th annual Wild Rumpus Parade and Spectacle Saturday, Oct. 27. Check out some of Flagpole photographer Savannah Cole's shots from the event below:
This year's Boo-Le-Bark on the Boulevard Halloween dog parade took place last Sunday, Oct. 14 and featured some of Athens' finest pups strutting their stuff in homemade costumes galore. Flagpole photographer Savannah Cole was there to capture the cuteness:
Pop icon and former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne played the Fox Theatre in Atlanta Tuesday, and Flagpole contributor Mike White was there to capture the show via photographs. Check out some of his shots below:
Athens mayor-elect Kelly Girtz and others got their groove on Saturday at Groovy Nights.
The 17th annual '70s- and '80s-themed lip-syncing contest, held at The Foundry this year, raised funds for Project Safe, a local nonprofit that works to prevent domestic violence and offers assistance to survivors and their children.
Girtz—who played coy about his song selection last week—went with Madonna's "Express Yourself."
The county commissioner wasn't the only elected official on stage, either. Watkinsville Mayor Dave Shearon also got into the act.
Both may be skilled at winning elections, but neither could take home the prize at Groovy Nights. That went to the MAMAs for their rendition of Prince's "1999."
Flagpole photographer Savannah Cole captured the event.
