Savannah is always so full of fun and magic, I often have to pinch myself to know if this life of mine is a real or not. Living in a city full of “things to do” is really a dream come true. Thursday night Jackie, Teresa and I worked together for about an hour or so and then had dinner. Jackie, who is a wonderful chef/caterer, made dinner for us. Asparagus Soup and a steak salad, what a meal! It is always great to get together with friends for fabulous food and great conversation. Teresa’s husband Jake came for dinner too. I know he thinks we are crazy, but I’ll bet we entertain him in a strange sort of way.
After dinner, Jake took us to Lulu’s Chocolate Bar for their Christmas Holiday celebration. Chocolate cake and chocolate martinis are really death by chocolate if you know what I mean. More great conversation and food. What more could a girl ask for in this city? Maybe a wealthy man?
Friday night was Wright Square Cafe holiday walk. The shop owners opened their shops from 5-9pm to pull in the Christmas gift spenders. Great idea! Punch, wine, cosmos sodas, coffee music and light bites at each shop was a wonderful draw for customers. Most of my guests, staying at the Inn for the week-end, were there to enjoy the evening. You could find anything from cupcakes to diamonds to paintings for sale. I saw lots of shopping bags through out the evening so it must have been a great success.
Saturday was the day for the Enmark Bridge Run. Two of my guests participated in that run and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Many of the kids were in costume and were to be judged during the day. Because this is always a great success, folks coming into town on Highway 17 always are inconvenienced by the wait time crossing from South Carolina into Georgia by way of the Talmadge Bridge. However, once in town realizing the situation, guests of Savannah usually understand and joke about their participation in this fund raiser too. — Diane McCray, Green Palm Inn
