A couple months back I secretly booked a long weekend getaway to Savannah for my wife and I to celebrate our five year anniversary. It would have been much more dramatic if I just picked her up from work and rushed to the airport, but in real life that is not feasible. I had to work out babysitting and my wife works in a hospital setting so schedules are planned out months in advance. I let the cat out of the bag in early November.
First on the agenda was to drive to Pittsburgh Friday night for a nice dinner and catch a plane to Savannah in the morning. Hope you like food and booze pics because that is the best things to do when you travel.
This is a Greek fish called Brozino. It was outstanding.
As most of you know I usually try and sniff out a good beer bar. I was in Savannah a year earlier and came across a bar called The Distillery. It had a great tap list and was very upfront about what they don't serve....
In my previous trip to Savannah I was told about this place, but was warned that lines get extremely long. Fortunately we only had to wait about 20 minutes as this was a down time for tourism and the first wave of patrons were leaving the restaurant.
Here is my one funny story from the trip....
My wife and I had been out the better part of the day exploring the town and decided it would be nice to have a drink outside. We stumble across a bar that is a little off the beaten path called The Rail Pub.
It turns out the bar caters to a more local clientele and just so happen was having an Xmas party. We were invited to stay for food and it even had an open bar for two hours.
Whenever I travel I like to bring back some local beer for my beer tasting group. I had a lot of extra room in my checked bag for this trip so I brought 18 beers. The only three that were not local were the bottles of Prairie. Those are just super hard to find anywhere in my area so I got a few for my own stash.
Well that is that. If I have one take away from this trip it is to do as much day drinking as possible. You might run into a random Xmas party and drink for free.
Back to cards tomorrow. Thanks for reading!
