FOR THE DAYTRIPPERS: California Guitar Trio @The Mars Theatre

8 p.m. $20 advance, $25 at door. Tickets at

CARE to venture out of downtown’s hustle and bustle this year? Springfield, Georgia offers small-town charm less than an hour down 21, and the restored Mars Theatre has all the old-school trappings to sweep you and your Valentine off to yesteryear.

California Guitar Trio provide the soundtrack to the experience, merging rock, jazz, classical, and world music. You may have heard their music at the Olympics; it was even used to awaken the Space Shuttle Endeavor’s crew (how many groups can say that?!).

Go full throwback and hit Ronnie’s Restaurant for milkshakes on your way down the road.
