Savannah Food and Wine FestivalLadies and gentleman, make way in your schedule because the Savannah Food and Wine Festival in November is coming!

Clear your calendars as much as you can from Monday, November 11 to Sunday, November 17 (2013). You won’t be disappointed, and neither will your tastebuds!


Why We’re Recommending The Savannah Food and Wine Festival…

We consider it part of our job to know the best of what you can eat and drink in Savannah. Luckily we LOVE to eat and drink around town – who doesn’t? We’re pretty much expert level in the subject. You can check out the highlights of our exploits in the section of our blog called “Foodies and Vinophiles.” As experts, we can recommend that you visit Savannah sometime during November 11-17 to check out the Savannah Food and Wine Festival. For the food, for the wine, for the fun…

How Do I Attend the Savannah Food and Wine Festival?

Well, we recommend that you reserve your room at Azalea Inn & Gardens first, because we can’t stop yammering about how incredible this event is going to be.

After you’ve secured your B&B room you can get tickets for the Savannah Food and Wine Festival. Those tickets will be available on July 1 at the Savannah Food and Wine Festival website. Then, just start dreaming of how awesome your week in Savannah is going to be! We’ll remind you on Facebook, so make sure you’re getting Facebook updates from Azalea Inn & Gardens!

Why Will the Savannah Food and Wine Festival Be So Special?

You don’t have to attend all the events, but we think that it would make for the trip of all foodie trips. Imagine yourself in beautiful and romantic Savannah, Georgia with your friends or your loved ones, at the following events. Those are just some of OUR favorite highlights, but events last all week, so check it out!

  • Wednesday, November 13 – A Celebrity Chef Tour at the Mansion on Forsyth park, featuring a collaboration dinner brought to you by the collaborative efforts of at least 4 famous James Beard Chefs. The James Beard Foundation (JFB) has a mission to celebrate, nurture, and honor America’s diverse culinary heritage through programs that educate and inspire. JFB is the gatekeeper for the upper echalon of excellence in food, so it’s a really BIG DEAL that they are involved.


  • Friday, November 15 – A River Street Wine Stroll down our historic waterfront, famous worldwide for all the fun to be had on the cobblestone walkways…Wine tastings and food pairings at all the best locations up and down River Street! We can’t wait for this.

  • Sunday, November 17 from 12-3pm – This event is the official Savannah Food and Wine Festival finale. It’s a champagne jazz brunch in honor of Savannah’s own jazz great, Ben Tucker (who passed away tragically this year). Jazz and Bubbles Brunch, yes please!


You will not be disappointed when you book your next trip to Savannah November 11-17, 2013 for the Savannah Food and Wine Festival. This B&B is excited, and we hope you are too!

Savannah Georgia is Vogue choice as a Host for the Third Annual Fashion’s Night Out

Savannah GA hosts Fashion's Night Out

Savannah Fashion’s Night Out – Mingle with Designers and Stars!

It really should come as no surprise to those who live and work here that Savannah, Georgia is recognized as a fashion influence by inclusion in Vogue Magazine’s Third Annual Fashion’s Night Out.  We have SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design) to thank for this honor, or at least in the humble opinion of the mother-in-law of a SCAD Fashion graduate, Kelley Landry Brock.  Why thank SCAD?  This college’s fashion program has gained such recognition that it rivals the top schools of New York CIty.  Savannah has become the home of several boutique start-ups of SCAD Grads, and boasts the success of the likes of Project Runway’s April Johnston (Season 8). The official announcement of new cities will be made in New York on August 15, but who needs to wait that long?  I want to tell you NOW!

This hot fashion event started three years ago during the economic downturn  of 2009; the 2011 edition of the best one-night fashion party is slated for September 8, 2011 from 7pm to 11 pm.  Bring cash, credit card or checks and arrive on Broughton Street in Historic Savannah GA prepared to mingle with celebrities, designers and stars.  Who knows what incredible fashion design you may find, the one that just cries out to you, “I am made for you!”   The right guy is not the only way to get that tingle from your toes to your nose – sometimes it’s just about the right fashion as it slithers, swishes, swoops and swoons over your body.

There are only 28 days, two hours and oh, so few minutes till the hottest fashion event of the year is launched in American’s favorite city, the most walkable city in America,  ranked the number 2 art destination (beating out  Charleston),  most historic city, the best place to retire (again, personal opinion), best place to vacation, one of American’s prettiest towns… (need I go on), SAVANNAH!!

Play it smart and come in early on Thursday night, September 8 for Savannah’s Fashion’s Night Out and stay the extra day, Friday night, September 9, so you won’t miss the delightful, tasteful, delectable, incredible Taste of Savannah!  We plan to be at both, of course.

Call Azalea Inn and Gardens to reserve your room – you won’t want to miss either event!
