With the help of our readers, The Sun has put together a list of some of the things that are quintessential Gainesville – the places, people and events that shape this town and make it tick. Weeks ago, we put the call out on our website for readers to tell us what they love about Gainesville or what they think everyone here should experience. The e-mails came pouring in with all kinds of suggestions, ranging from well-known activities to creative and lesser-known ideas. So grab a pen and check off what you’ve seen or done and start circling what you still need to explore.
(and here was the mention of us)
grab a slice at Satchel’s Pizza
Bring cash only and a hearty appetite to this funky and fun-loving pizza spot, which was one of the most popular submissions for this list. From traditional to deep dish, the pies keep the place packed and people waiting … sometimes almost an hour. Pass the time by scanning art-filled walls or browsing the junk shop. And for unique memories, try to eat inside the van outside.
1800 N.E. 23rd Ave., 335-7272. www.satchels-pizza.com
they got the website link wrong though, as we don’t have a dash in there. but nice to see we were high on the submissions list. thanks gainesville!
