Day 6: Morning to hit the road towards Atlanta. We stopped for coffee and ended up getting breakfast to go at J. Christopher’s …it’s like a Southern version of Denny’s. I was going to order a Doggie Bag off the menu because it sounded really good. I didn’t realize it was really for a dog. So I got the Big Bubba (Biscuits & Gravy, Eggs and Cheese Grits). Sounds good, but I still should’ve gotten a Doggie Bag.
Day 5: We made it through the Savannah party night. Matt, Jill and I went for breakfast/lunch at Clary’s. Freshly made Corned Beef Hash …spiced up so it tasted sorta like summer sausage. On our way out, I stared at the giant eclairs.
Day 4: Savannah! After our show with amazing The Fourth Ward Afro-Klezmer Orchestra, we partied hard at Wes’ bar, HangFire. Dang, I hadn’t been at a dance party like that in maybe 6 years. That place was bumpin. People spilling out onto the street. Oh yeah, you can drink on the street in a plastic cup.
Next door is Sweet Melissa’s. They must be cleaning up from all the party people. I went in there three times by myself and with friends …and each time I saw a different drunk person passed out along the stools.
When I first walked in, a guy with a big gut yelled at me that I should get the Grilled Cheese. He was right. That was damn good in that moment. Shonali’s burger was a monster for $5.
