When is the best time to be in Savannah? Well, it depends, but the Wall Street Journal says see Savannah in January. A featured article on Savannah, entitled “Southern Revival”, held a delicious quote: “Savannah is still…Savannah, only with more facial scruff, less blue hair wash. January’s a pleasant time to get to know her, little black dress with biker boots and all.’ It immediately brings to mind the funky lively spirit that the students of SCAD bring to the city, as well as the free-spirited nature of all her transplants (of which I am one). Were I a few years younger, I would dare to wear biker boots with anything chic and feel perfectly comfortable in our vibrant downtown night scene.
The WSJ article is a delight in bites of city-fare and city-venues provided by some of Savannah’s best known locals, Cora Bett Thomas, John Duncan, Paula Wallace and Bobby Zarem. It is easy to agree with Cora Bett’s picks of Tybee Island Social Club, a surprising taqueria, and her “Scoop and a Movie” suggestion for Leopold’s and the Lucas Theatre. Bobby Zarem and I agree, hands down, Mrs. Wilkes is the ONLY place to get your Southern on and is so worth the wait (I arrive about 20 minutes before closing which gives me the added luxury of not having to plan for or prepare dinner that night!) John Duncan summed up our Jepson Art Center succinctly and it would be a shame for you to miss any of the Telfair Academy Foundation-owned homes.
