Random Ruminations

Betty BombersRunning off at the keyboard while everything turns green around me. ‘Tis the Season.

  • We must begin with a huge welcome back to our friends at Betty Bombers on Bull Street, downtown Savannah. They re-opened 10 months after a devastating fire to huge crowds. Well deserved. Some of the best casual grub in town.
  • Shameless plug #1. I am participating in the American Diabetes Association’s annual Kiss-A-Pig Campaign this year. For 23 years ADA has been having a blast with this campaign in Savannah raising money for Diabetes. The plan? 8 parties across the region. Sure we’ll have some fun with good food and wine, but mostly casual fare and a good time. Read more about the campaign here. A complete list of venues and events will be released after St. Patrick’s Day.
  • It’s not like me to get political or otherwise tell people what to do, but if you have children and they enjoy sugary drinks, you should definitely read this.
  • Something to jot down on your calendars. Pacci Kitchen and Bar is beginning “Acoustic Tuesdays” next month. Beginning April 14th 6pm-8pm. There will be $7 cocktails and munchies as well. We will have more as we draw closer.
  • Now that the cold weather (we hope) has let up, you need to enjoy some great cocktails and a pizza on the deck at The Florence. If you recall, they opened in June of last year, so we really didn’t get to enjoy a Savannah Spring on that deck. Now is your chance.
  • The Collins Quarter, one of downtown Savannah’s more popular breakfast and lunch spots is working on their dinner menu. They refuse to open their doors until it’s close to perfect. So the world waits. But it is in the works and on the way. I’ll keep you posted.
  • Best way to stay in the loop? Sign up for our newsletter. Twice a month we send you a review or preview of the things going on food wise in the area. There is no better resource for foodies. You can do that right here.
  • You can also follow me on Twitter @eatitandlikeit
  • This is absolutely hilarious and worth sharing. A woman is suing a restaurant for $100,000 for “ruining” her Valentine’s Day dinner. Of course, there are two sides to every story. Read about it here.
  • There is a bill in the works to allow restaurants to serve alcohol on Sundays after 10:30am. If it passes, we will likely see a boom in the brunch business. More on that here.
  • hudsons_signSpeaking of brunch, Hudson’s on the Dock’s on Hilton Head Island is starting their own brunch program. I’ve seen a portion of the menu and it looks pretty good.
  • We’ve taken a little time to get the house in order. But new episodes of Savannah/Hilton Head Island’s highest rated local TV show will be back March 23rd. We’ve got lots of fun in store. We’ve even spent some time in a few Vegan kitchens. Fancy, huh? Ha.

See you on TV.
