I returned late last night from a girls’ weekend in Savannah, Georgia. A good friend of mine was celebrating her 29th birthday (let me pat myself on the back for a minute for my hashtag skills—#29onmymind, a play on Georgia on My Mind) and we spent a few days staying in my friend’s sister’s Pinterest worthy apartment, eating heavenly Southern food, walking around town, binge-ing on macarons, and taking in the artsy vibe of the city.
Since I had nowhere to be except back in freezing cold D.C., I took a few hours to explore the city on my own yesterday, which is my ideal way to take in a new place. I spent a couple days in Savannah years ago, but this trip made me fall in love with the city.
My recommendations for a weekend in Savannah? Cocktails at The Grey, which is an old Greyhound bus station that has been turned into a restaurant. I can’t get enough of mid-century decor and design, and this place is perfection. Dinner at the Tavern at the Olde Pink House, a (very) dimly lit basement with warm, delicious food and an atmosphere that is pulled straight from a long gone era. Finish out the weekend with brunch at Soho South—the bloody mary’s are thick and spicy, but keep in mind they don’t serve them before 12:30 PM so don’t get there too early!
