A historic view
Despite the warmer, sunnier weather over the weekend, the water levels of the Tennessee River remain so high that the piers on the Riverfront downtown are submerged. Entrance to Point Park on Lookout Mountain—the perfect spot from which to view the river’s path around Chattanooga—is coincidentally free today in celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The tour fee is also being waived, as are all entrance fees to all national parks.
When: Park hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
Where: 110 Point Park Road, Lookout Mountain
How much: Free
One, two or three
Continue the national celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day (or an extra day of the weekend ...) and the public swearing in of President Barack Obama for his second term with a bottle of wine at The Social. The dimly lit, cozy bar has enough TV screens to watch highlights from the ceremony and Sunday’s Ravens upset, and today’s special allows for a decent, nice or very nice accompaniment to dinner.
When: 5 p.m.-close
Where: 1110 Market St.
How much: Bottles of red and white for $10, $20 or $30
