Savannah 2014: We Ate, We Drank, We Conquered
Vinnie Van GoGo's. My HUGE slice of pizza had feta, sun-dried tomatoes and onions and was scrumptious.
Tybee Island Social Club. I had my first ceviche (seriously! I'd never had it before) and it was delicious. I also sampled the red hibiscus sangria, while Bret and his mom went spicy, sampling the put-hair-on-your-chest Jalapeno Margarita and the Del Fuego, featuring muddle jalapeno, agave nectar, fresh lime juice, Mezcal and ginger beer.
Chive Sea Bar & Lounge for before-dinner drinks. Bret started his round with The Flaming June, with vodka, a kaffir lime leaf, freshly squeezed citrus, Thai chili pepper and a hint of honey. I had a Melon Mule, a twist on the Moscow Mule with delicious melon liquor.
The Public Kitchen and Bar, which had another great drink menu! For our first go-round, Bret had the Rosemary Mule, with gin, ginger syrup, muddled rosemary and ginger beer and I had the Smoky Peach, a truly smoky-sweet mix of Mezcal, Peach Schnapps, Jack Rudy grenadine, soda and grapefruit bitters.
Mrs. Wilkes Dining Room, the best Southern food you've ever seen, smelled or digested.
It was a delicious visit down south! Next up, my recap of the best part: the shopping!
