Savannah Pajama Shop Hop Update

December 18th, 2012 by Teresa Jacobson

Well, we wanted to surprise you – but let’s face it: too many surprises around this time of year and what we really need is a nice drink and some new shoes for all the holiday parties. And some retail therapy for all the “tidings of great joy” we have to get to share. So, if you haven’t heard already – we’ve got your ticket, er, passport.

Yup, here’s another Savannah Pajama Shop Hop update for ya’ll – the December shopping event for visitors and Savannians alike. Today we’re featuring detailed discounts from the restaurants participating  in our first ever Savannah Pajama Shop Hop and details to get you and your friends shopping. As I am writing I am getting an overwhelmingly great sense of a slightly not-sober pajama be-clad drinking and shopping day, ladies and gentlemen! Please drink and shop responsibly!

THE SAVANNAH RESTAURANTS

The Pirate’s House Restaurant is giving 10% off at the gift shop (where there are more t-shirt designs than friends on your gift list) and 1/2 off an entree with any entree purchase. You might even get spooked in the haunted facilities. On the outside of 20 East Broad Street (at Broad and Bryan) it looks like just some old house. Those looks don’t deceive – it’s actually the oldest building in Savannah, and, the ENTIRE state of Georgia. Hours: 11-9:30 Sun – Th. and 11-10 Fridays and Saturdays.

Wright Square Cafe at 21 West York Street (Between Whitaker and Bull Streets right off, you guessed it, Wright Square) is offering either 20% off purchases. They have a huge selection of chocolate confections for sale, and amazing sandwiches also! They describe their business as “a casual European cafe serving only the finest and freshest”. It’s true! Hours: M-F 7:30-5:30, Saturdays from 9-5:30. Closed on Sundays.

For a restaurant championing local and organic produce, Cha Bella is your best bet. You get 10% off your meal and with December temperatures hovering high, you can still choose to sit outside on their patio, which is always sparkling with little white lights! Go to the intersection of Broughton and Broad, to 102 Broad Street to take advantage of your passport at Cha Bella!

45 Bistro at 123 E. Broughton Street has an absolutely STUNNING atmosphere. The photo ops are unlimited: you, and your friends, in pajamas. Drinking cocktails surrounded by the finery. Get a free dessert with any entree purchase with your Shop Hop passport here! The Bar opens around 5, the Restaurant around 6. Close at 9, but they say “until” because they’ll stay open when busy and close when not.

1790 Restaurant is giving away a free dessert or glass of wine. Their website points out that Emerson wrote, of wine, that “It gladdens the heart and stimulates all that is most generous in human nature.” Now that’s a holiday tradition I can get behind! Go to 307 E. President Street (at Lincoln and President Streets). Hours: Lunch Monday-Friday 11:00 a.m – 3:00 p.m / Dinner 5:30 – 10:00 p.m. The Lounge is open 11 a.m. to Midnight with happy hour from 4-7. WAIT. HOLD THE PHONE. Did I just say happy hour???

Cotton Exchange Tavern & Restaurant at 201 E River Street (where the intersection of River and Abercorn Streets WOULD be if there was one but you can enter right on Bay Street). If you get apps and dinner, the appetizer is $8.95 off (and most of the appetizers are in that range so it’s basically a free appetizer) OR, $4 off a cocktail. We even have a room with the same name at our Inn! Hours: 11 am until 10:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday -or- until 11:45 Friday & Saturday. Closed Sundays.

Jazz’d Tapas Bar at 52 Barnard Street (at Broughton and Barnard underneath The GAP – giving 25% off any Pajama Shop Hoppers’ purchase) is offering 25% off Tapas and a basic martini for only $6. Hours: Everyday from 4-10, and until 12 on Friday and Saturday. Happy Hour Monday-Thursday 4-7. Ladies Night every Thursday!

I mentioned Lulu’s Chocolate Bar already in the last Shop Hop update  but, seriously, this place is awesome. Dessert and booze at the SAME PLACE as a reward for all the work you put into your Pajama Shop Hop shopping? What’s not to like about that? 15% off anything you buy at Lulu’s for the Shop Hoppers of Savannah. Hellooooo. GO, reserve your room or get your toy NOW to get your passport. You won’t be disappointed. Hours: Open at 5 everyday. Close at 11 Sunday and Monday. Close at 12 Tuesday-Thursday. Close at 1 Friday-Saturday.

Mirage Restaurant is a Hookah Lounge AND a Mediterranean Bar and Grill at 20 E. Broughton Street (about halfway between Bull and Drayton cross-streets). They are giving 10 percent discount to Shop Hoppers in their PJ’s! Hours: Sunday – Wednesday from 5-12. Thursday – Saturday from 5-2:30am.

So now that you’re hungry, remember that you’ll work up an appetite WALKING all around downtown Savannah’s historic district. Don’t forget your holiday shoes! Savannah Shoe Co. is featuring the “cobblestones to cocktail” shoe right now for the season – and there is no better way to hit the pavement. Stop by downtown Savannah location at 226 West Broughton Street between Jefferson & Barnard to get 10% off  your new party shoes! Get your passport TODAY and shop until December 31st!

You only have until December 31 to take advantage of all these restaurant discounts, and the other shopping discounts at the 70+ participating retailers of the Savannah Pajama Shop Hop. To participate, Reserve a room at Azalea Inn & Gardens for 2 nights in December, or, we’ll trade you a Savannah Pajama Shop Hop Saving’s Passport for a new, unwrapped toy (which will be given to the Toys for Tots program). To sweeten the deal, if you get 10 stamps on your passport and bring it BACK to Azalea, you’ll be entered into our Shop Hop drawing to win 2 nights at one of the participating Savannah Inns, including Azalea Inn & Gardens.

 

The Savannah Pajama Shop Hop was masterminded by Azalea Inn & Garden’s Innkeeper Teresa Scott Jacobson. Look how much fun she had convincing the businesses to give YOU the discounts!  Imagine how much fun you will have with YOUR friends, too! It’s so simple to find fun things to do in Savannah – and we’re your ticket, whether you’re local or you’re visiting and want a B&B to show you how to have the best Savannah vacation in our our great city of shopping and eating delights!

 

Azalea Inn and Gardens, a Savannah GA bed and breakfast inn, invites you to reserve your room today and begin enjoying the best experiences in our city – including shopping!

Savannah, GA Rocks at The Jinx

August 4th, 2012 by kolinpodell

Whats on at the Jinx Bar, Savannah GAThe Jinx club and bar, a.k.a. “the CBGB of the South”, is Savannah’s premier spot for crowd’s of all ages to rock to local and traveling bands. If you’re looking for awesome drinks from local long time bartenders that make you feel like you’re just enjoying a fun time in their basement, we at Azalea Inn and Gardens head to The Jinx. There is something going on every night of the week in the funky skulls and darkness atmosphere. Karaoke, Rock and Roll Bingo nights, live concerts, and Hip Hop Hop night are just a few of the weekly events that draw in the wide array of clientele.

The recent filming of the 2013 movie, “CBGB”, happened mostly at The Jinx and surrounding buildings. Top actors such as Rupert Grint and Justin Bartha had a great time there calling out bingo numbers or simply enjoying the relaxed atmosphere after a day of filming. The location manager for “CBGB”, Charley Baxter, even planned on having the wrap party for the movie at The Jinx.

The owner, Susanne Guest Warnekros, got her inspiration for The Jinx directly from CBGB. She is proud to host traveling bands in the area. Her staff goes a long way to welcome weary bandmates, housing them on couches and providing home cooked meals. The Jinx was also home to many bands during the latest Savannah Stopover Festival. The whole feeling of The Jinx is a real down home place to rock, drink, meet locals, and have an all-out great time.
