Bed and Breakfast Recipes

Lemony Mint Berry White Wine Spritzer:

Just slice a few strawberries, 

muddle with a sprig or two of mint, 

pour a dry white wine over (try a nice Pinot Grigio), 

squeeze the juice of two fresh lemons, and top with a splash of sparkling mineral water 

(or Sprite if you like it sweet). 

It's perfect! 

Eating the strawberries at the bottom is everyone's favorite part, of course!

Try this signature drink for your next party!!

Savannah's Restaurant Week

Celebrating great eats on Savannah's streets....DURING OUR ANNUAL RESTAURANT WEEK!
Happening July 26th all the way through August 4th 2013

This event is presented by The Savannah Morning News, and it is a MUST DO! Great deals and Fantastic dining spots are participating this year! It is a wonderful way to try out a new or old dining spot you've been meaning to try...and the deals 
are like no other!

This 10-Day celebration of Savannah’s restaurant scene pays homage to the culinary heritage that makes our city unique — and is held in tribute to the restaurants that are becoming such a vital part of Savannah’s tradition of hospitality!

From July 26th – August 4th, 2013, each participating upscale restaurant will offer a spectacular 3-course, prix fixe dinner menu for only $30 per person (not including tax and gratuity).

It’s an opportunity that would have likely been heralded by 

Englishman James Oglethorpe, who is credited with identifying the site of present day Savannah and laying out its now famous and inviting squares. Those defining moments ultimately contributed to the development of Savannah and was the catalyst for our now ever-expanding array of dining options and remarkable chefs.

Reservations are recommended. Peruse the participating restaurants to learn more about their offerings and how to book your table.

Also, explore options for discounted hotel accommodations during Savannah Restaurant Week.
