For the first time ever in Five & Ten's history, we will be serving a traditional New Year's Day Dinner. Think Southern meat n' three with the traditional New Year's Day dishes: classic hoppin' john (for good luck), skillet cornbread, collards (symbolizing green money)and pan fried pork chops with chanterelle pan gravy. Start the New Year off right and join us!
Open regular hours: 5:30-11:00 pm.

I am competing in the Athens Dancing with the Stars to raise money for Project Safe, an amazing 501c3 working to end domestic violence and provide support systems for the victims of domestic violence.
The Athens Dancing with the Stars event is their marquee fundraiser for the year and gets a ton of attention. My wonderful partner for the evening is Natalie Cox who is a local attorney and ballroom dance instructor. Natalie and I will be raising money for the event throughout the next three months in a variety of different ways.
The easiest way to support us is to go to the project Safe website and click through to support our team, lucky #7!!!
But as time flies by we will be having t-shirt sales, drink specials, wine dinners, tip jars, cooking classes and corporate sponsorship opportunities!
If you can directly support us then write a check to Project Safe and we'll put your logo on the back of our t-shirt! Unlike many charities we'll give you a lot more than a cheesy mug!
A four course Five & Ten wine dinner for six at the restaurant! Gratuity for the waiter not included.
A wine tasting for 12 people with tapas at GOSFORD WINE!
