August 4th, 2017 by Corey Edwards

Tybee Labor Day Beach Bash 2017It’s a little hard to believe but Labor Day weekend is just around the corner. Join in the fun and sun on Tybee Island during the annual Tybee Labor Day Beach Bash 2017! Sunday, September 3rd, 7pm to 10pm at the Tybee Pier and Pavilion!

Tybee Island may grimace a bit when we say it but their sandy shores really do feel like Savannah’s beach. Consequently, when it’s time to celebrate sun and sand in Savannah, what better place to do so than Tybee Pier and Pavilion?

Tybee Pier offers spectacular ocean views, great fishing, and excellent people watching. The pier is  a very popular spot for dances, concerts, and other special events. The pier has picnic tables, restrooms, and a snack bar, with shops, galleries, and restaurants just steps away. It really is the perfect place for an ocean-side event. (more…)

Treat Yourself To the 2017 Savannah Bacon Fest on River Street!

July 21st, 2017 by Corey Edwards

Savannah Bacon Fest 2017I like bacon, you like bacon – just about everyone likes bacon! Come out to the 4th annual Savannah Bacon Fest on River Street, September 1st through the 4th, 2017, for live music, arts and crafts, and delicious, mouthwatering, heavenly BACON!

Bacon has always tasted this good so I’m confused as to why it took us this long to so widely celebrate it. Everywhere you look these days, there’s something new with bacon. Bacon wrapped this, bacon shaped that, bacon scented air fresheners, and bacon flavored desserts. It can all seem a bit over the top – but we ARE talking about bacon, after all!

Savannah takes the trend of bacon-appreciation to its logical conclusion with the annual, 4-day Savannah Bacon Fest on River Street. Select local restaurants will be serving a variety of tempting bacon creations. You’ll see bacon, pork belly, sow belly, pork slab, pancetta and more. You’ll also see things you never considered doing with bacon – and you may be surprised at how good it all is! (more…)
