Spicyland in Savannah – Part 1Posted: November 20, 2013 | |
We left South Carolina…. 😦
….but had Georgia on our minds.
DT and I arrived in Savannah early Wednesday afternoon. After checking into our hotel and scoping that out a bit, we were off to walk about the city.
First stop: Moon River Brewing Company on East Bay Street.
Their Apparition Ale was tasty. So tasty, in fact, I won many games of Yahtzee that day. Look how much we’d played in three days!
Day two in Savannah was Halloween, whoop!
We started with a stroll through Savannah’s City Market.
This pedestrian walkway is surrounded by shops, restaurants, and bars. It’s a great gathering spot, and with benches scattered throughout, you can stop and rest your feet a spell while enjoying a treat.
The steps down to East River Street are old (erm, historic) and a leedle-bit scary.
And steep – eep! We concentrated very hard as we walked up and down so as not to turn an ankle or do a face plant. That’s no way to spend a vacation!
The skies started to clear up right around lunchtime….where to eat?
We found a pleasant-looking patio at Social Club on Congress Street and headed right in.
We could have grown roots here! Alas, with stomachs full and happy, we headed back to the hotel to chillax a while, knowing it would be a ghoulishly late night.
We stayed at a Courtyard here as well, in the Historic District.
Just like Charleston, it was a central location and extremely walkable to and fro.
And that table right there in front was a fantastic place to play Yahtzee. 😉
When the evening was nigh, we headed back toward City Market to see the Halloween festivities.
The nifty thing about Savannah is that you can go to a bar, buy a drink, and take it with you to-go.
So, for example, we saw the above sign for Georgia peach sangria at Cafe at City Market, ordered one each….
….paid, cheers-ed, then went on our merry way.
Then we hit The Bar Bar in a basement.
It was pretty quiet our first visit there, but when we stopped back later it was hoppin.
Next, Tree House on the second floor.
Overlooking all the hullaballoo in City Market.
It was getting late and well past our dinnertime – DT and I landed at Vinnie Van Go Go’s for some takeout pizza.
A serious pizza assembly line here – orders were zipped down a wire from the cash register to the kitchen.
Look – our beautiful, bubbly cheese pizza:
Look fast, because about three minutes later DT would trip and our pie would fall face-first on the sidewalk. 😦
I nearly cried.
And that wraps up Halloween in Savannah….only one more day left! (I nearly cry again!)
