We made the most of Allison’s bachelorette weekend in the short time we had. Saturday evening was dedicated to a night on the town. We started off at Vic’s on the River for a nice dinner and adored [devoured] their biscuits and honey butter. It’s right on River Street and I’d go there again in a heartbeat for the food and the views of the Savannah River.
After that, we started off a martini at Jen and Friend’s. It’s a tiny little spot off the beaten path, and their martini menu is unbeatable. Where else can you get a birthday cake martini with a SLICE of birthday cake on the rim of your glass? It’s worth a try. The night life scene in Savannah was just as fun as we’d heard, and Saturday was exactly what we’d hoped!
We woke up the next morning bright and early, thanks to a certain bride-to-be who can’t sleep late to save her life… 😉 It was our last day though, so we got up after a little bit of grumbling.
We were headed to Tybee Island to explore the barrier island, grab some brunch, and see the lighthouse. The weather was hot but not sticky, and the blue skies above were perfect for a day on the island. It seemed that everyone on the island was out. Dragging coolers and wagons piled with kids, sunscreen, snacks, lunches, and beer. Wearing bathing suits on the main road on Tybee. Everyone was heading in one direction — the beach.
Our choice for brunch was the Tybee Island Social Club and good gracious, we couldn’t have made a better choice. I got the Social Steak Biscuit — a homemade buttermilk biscuit with country fried steak and a fried egg in the middle. Don’t forget the pepper gravy either. It-was-heaven. From there, we went over to the Tybee Island Light Station and got to know a little history of this particular barrier island.
In the early afternoon, we headed off, speeding down I-95 headed for Brunswick and my sweet Grandma’s house, where I’d be spending the next week.
It was a beautiful weekend, and just the thing Jessica and I wanted for our bride-to-be, Allison!
