Angla's Bachelorette Weekend in Savannah

 This weekend I was in Savannah, GA celebrating my sister-in-law Angela for her bachelorette weekend.  We had an absolute blast!  We got down there Friday afternoon and walked around River Street.  Our first stop was Wet Willies to cool down with an alcoholic slush. We continued to stroll River Street, ducking into shops every once in a while to browse.  


Friday night we went and had dinner at Fiddler's Crab Shack overlooking the river, and had after dinner drinks and dessert at Lulu's Chocolate Bar.






After our dessert martinis, we headed to Saddlebags, a line dancing bar on River Street.  Angela is an awesome line dancer, and she taught us some fun moves.  I think I may have had a little easier time catching on if I hadn't just guzzled down a chocolate mint martini. 


Saturday morning we headed to Tybee Island for some beach time.  This was the first {and last} time I'll see the ocean this year.   I only live a few hours from the coast, but our summer has been so busy that we've had no time for the beach.   So, naturally I savored every moment with not enough sunscreen, and came home with quite a burn. 


Fortunately for us, Tybee also has a Wet Willies, so we stopped in for another refreshing slushy before we headed back to downtown Savannah.


Saturday night we went to the Olde Pink House for dinner.  The restaurant had the most amazing atmosphere.  Its located in an old house that was designed by Thomas Jefferson.  According to our waitress, the house was used for many purposes throughout it's history, including a hospital for wounded soldiers during the revolutionary war.  The food was awesome, I had a BLT salad that was featured on the Food Network's The Best Thing I Ever Ate.




After dinner we just had to go to Savannah Smiles, a dueling piano bar.  This place is like bachelorette central.  We saw at least 5 other bachelorettes in there.  They do a great job of involving the crowd and having the bachelorettes and come up on stage. 


We finished off the night at the Bohemian Hotel's rooftop bar with 1/2 off champagne.  They sell all of their bubbly at half price when they are about to close, what a deal!  Sunday morning we got up and had brunch at Vic's On The River and headed back home.  We all had such a great time with Angela and cannot wait for the wedding in October!

  2. One of my favorite places to go! It's such a gorgeous and historic city. Did they tell you how the Olde Pink House is haunted? It's such a neat story. I love Tybee too!

  3. I don't remember the episode featuring the Olde Pink House was on The Food Network, but I really did have the best steak I've ever eaten there! Savannah is such a fun town, it looks like you had a great weekend!
