Savannah’s July 4th 2012 Fireworks Extravaganza

April 8th, 2012 by Teresa Jacobson

Fireworks in Savannah Georgia

It’s hard to get excited about any holiday that falls on a Wednesday, but we take our celebrations seriously in the South and Savannah’s July 4, 2012 Fireworks Extravaganza will be no exception. Everyone knows that Savannah is the only place to be for St. Patrick’s Day – after all, we did hold the largest parade with the largest attendence in the WORLD just a few weeks ago – but we take all opportunities that come our way to have some fun. Did you know there are over 200 festivals throughout the year in Savannah – no kidding! We love our food, our beer, our wine, our art, our culture, our city – heck, we love it all – but most of all we love sharing! So join us on July 4, even if it is a Wednesday, and plan on spending the night – getting up for work the next day is much easier if you didn’t spend it in jail cause you had a wee bit too much fun – or better, take the next day off, meander our streets and enjoy this world-class destination.

4th Annual Savannah Craft Brew Festival

July 24th, 2011 by Teresa Jacobson

Savannah Ga Labor Day Festival

Beer and Buddies and Labor Day Fun

Where I grew up, Beer and Burgers went with Labor Day like fireworks on the fourth of July, and here in Savannah, well, we take Beer on Labor Day to a whole new level!  Welcome to the 4th Annual Savannah Craft Brew Festival - a three-day festival dedicated to craft brew enthusiasts!  There are over 35 brewing companies, live music, food, and judging contests for both home brewers and professional brewers alike. 

The festival starts on Friday with a golf tournament at 10 a.m. followed by a beer tasting reception.  Friday evening brings an opportunity to join fellow aficionados for a beer and food pairing dinner accompanied by live music.  Jake and I have attended and sponsored many wine and food pairing dinners, but our first beer and food pairing was a blast!  Now if you don’t have time to fit in dinner, be sure to show up for the desserts and brews and fireworks, aptly named “Brews and Booms”.

Saturday and Sunday offers an outdoor event on the Esplanade at the trade center with more than 130 different craft brews, live entertainment, delicious food offerings and souvenir items for sale.  Sunday night closes with a “Beer vs. Wine Dinner” at Ruth’s Chris steak house – a 5-course event hosted by Tim Rutherford (Brewfest chairman and wine columnist) and Oscar Wong (Highland Brewing Company) who will make the pairings but ultimately, you will choose the best pairing for each course.

Stone Brewing Company, San Diego, CAWe have to share with you that one of Jake’s all-time favorite brewers will be in attendance – Stone Brewing Company of San Diego.  Jake introduced me to this beer when we first began dating over 11 years ago when he encouraged me to take a sip of his “Arrogant Bastard” ale, and I was hooked.  Drop by the festival and out see for yourself!

New York City Tradition in Savannah

July 14th, 2011 by Teresa Jacobson

Shortly after breakfast on July 5, a family from New York City staying with us for four days, inquired if they might use our grill, conveniently located poolside, for an afternoon cookout – a July 4 family tradition that they had to forego while on vacation.  Before I could answer, they threw in a bribe – I was invited to dinner!  Never one to turn down food, and most especially food I don’t have to prepare, I enthusiastically gave permission.  (We have all the basic fixings for any guest who wants to use our grill from salt and pepper to paper plates).   Smiling broadly, Jason and Sandy, and daughters Claire and Nicola, immediately proceeded to invite everyone at the inn to join them around 4 in the afternoon for a barbeque! 

Work kept me busy till just after 5:30 and as I toured the last check-in through the backyard and pool area, I was surprised to see my New York family and six other guests gathered around the grill and table, laughing, eating, drinking, and encapsulated with plenty of good cheer.  Once free, I quickly joined the party, helped myself to an ear of corn, and watched amusedly as “Chef Jason” cajoled the last check-in, a couple from Kentucky taking a slow and meandering drive home from Gulfport, Mississippi, to join us.  We quickly grabbed chairs off the nearby decks and made room round the table.   

Grilled corn was slathered with butter, while burgers and dogs were joyously consumed.  Jason was the grill commander deftly turning the pork, chicken and steak kabobs over the heat assisted by his youngest, Nicola.  Sandy made sure each new arrival had a drink (white or red wine, or beer) and quickly shooed the children to make room for the adults.  The other guests came and went, on their way to dinner, but a core of us stayed despite the heat:  Sandy, Trevor, Claire and Nicola from NYC (though Sandy and Trevor are from South Africa originally), Patric and Charles from Ohio (celebrating eight years together), Matthew and Allison from W. Virginia (on their honeymoon),  Melissa and Patrick from Illinois (also honeymooners), and Kim and Greg from Kentucky (celebrating his return from Afghanistan). 

Soon Scott West, Jason and Sandy’s Savannah connection and the person who referred the family to our inn, arrives and has gifts for the family and one for me!  We passed the delicious Byrd Cookie Company treats around for all to taste, and I snuck inside to fill my tumbler with the Inn’s special Dreamcicle Lemonade (with a dash of Vodka) which I also shared around the table.  Claire and Nicola entertained us (quite beautifully, I might ad) with songs they had learned from several Broadway shows and musicals as well as some songs of the old South, including a song of freedom from slavery!  This prompted a lively discussion around the table, as I am sure you can imagine!  As the evening’s laughter grew and life stories were shared, Jason and Greg left to purchase more beer and wine.  It was at this point that I realized I had better excuse myself as breakfast duty was on my plate for the morning. 

It is moments such as these when guests find kindred spirits and the feeling of family permeates the evening that I realized how blessed I am to do what I do.  There is no doubt, Azalea Inn and Gardens bed and breakfast is a better way to stay*!

*“better way to stay.” is the grassroots campaign of the Professional Association of Innkeepers (PAII) dedicated to helping travelers discover the B&B experience.
