Well looky at those pretty pictures that Miss Vero posted yesterday with absolutely no explanation at all! What has happened to our gin soaked brain, have we finally hit our limit? Well, let's just say we are busy beyond our wildest imagination and hit the "publish" button instead of the "save" button and there y'all have it.
So let's get started catchin up...
The first picture was taken from a recent trip to the gorgeous city of Savannah, Georgia, where we were visitin' with some kin but always make a point to do touristy things. Since Savannah's liberal alkeehaul policy requires that y'all follow the local open container law strictly - meaning that you must have an open container with you at all times while wakin' around, we consider Savannah and New Orleans the only two great Southern cities outside of Florida (in our little ole humble opinion, which requires a good time be had). We'll get to some N'awlins pickins in a little bit but for now, back to Savannah.
As y'all can plainly see we are indeed wearing yet another pair of gorgeous and always fashionable, Bonanno Sandals! Since we missed our favorite show at Club One with the famous and fabulous Lady Chablis, we thought we'd take a touristy picture outside of Mr. Jim Williams' Mercer House. Now iffin any of y'all don't know the story of "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" by now, for pity's sake get yourself down to the library or order it up on netflix, there's just no dang excuse!
After having the most delicious lunch at The Pink House (a tourist destination that should not be classified as such and because Miss Wilkes wasn't open), we stopped into yet another hot touristy spot, The Pirate House. Sitting at the bar and visiting with folks and who do y'all think we run into? Some kids from Vero, that's who! They were doing the incognito touristy thing too. Vero's own cutey pie, Miss Katie McKenna is second from the left!
We finished the evening in one of the greatest dive and hole in the wall bars of all time -Pinkey Masters! A whole lotta history just oozes out of the walls along with the nicotine and whiskey.
"The Pinkie’s clientele is also varied, hosting an assortment of incognito powerbrokers, drunken partiers, roughnecks, gays, SCAD students and professors, lots of news reporters, and an occasional off-course tourist." Our kind of place.
We 've written about Savannah before, so if y'all are thinkin' about makin' a trip - the links that we've just mentioned plus our previous post (just click on "Savannah, GA at the left on the "List") should provide all the info one would need for fabulous food and a rip roarin' good time.
When we got back in town, Miss Vero got a call from our good friend, best blogger, facebook conqueror and favorite real estate Queen, Miss Barbara Martino-Sliva, who invited us to the opening of the new Surf Club last Thursday night. Miss Barbara said this event was right up Miss Vero's alley and boyee, was she right! Yet another fabulous boutique hotel has opened up on our beach and the party was heavily attended. Spotted among the myriad of realtors and go-getters were County Commish, Big Ole Gary Wheeler with an entourage including the first-to-leave-'causes-he's gotta-get-up-early, Mr. Rhett Palmer. Another political dynamo in attendance (insert appropriate sarcastic tone), ex- Mayor and office squatter, Mr. Sabe Abell.
Open bar and fantastic food! We especially loved the bacon wrapped filets, enormous sliders and turkey coquettes. Our friends, The Ryan Larson group (perhaps you've seen them in this video?) provided the perfect music. Miss Vero can't wait to get back, we adore the decor of Dukes bar and the extraordinary rehab and magic that owner, Mr. James Clarke, the gracious Mr. Gary Hughes and their partners have performed to bring this property back to life. Check out their amazing website!
We had a lovely tour of the resort and we spotted two publications prominently featured in the rooms (hence our unexplained photos). Y'all might recognize the ultimate source for local news verobeach32963!
Speaking of vb32963, we have a little more to say about news and bloggin and will deliver that post to our friends at Veronews.com as quick as we can.
But for now, let Miss Vero fulfill at least one promise and give y'all a little bit of WHO DAT! from a good friend of ours in N'Orleans. As y'all probably know by now, we detest the sport of football, but even our ole vinegar veined self could not help but watch The Saints win the Superbowl. Miss Vero knows many folks in NOLA and sure does love that town. It is takin all our strength not to get in the convertible and drive to that party right now! But alas, hunnies, there is plenty goin' on right here in our own little town and while we get our vodka bottles in a row, straighten out our mixers and get down to takin' care of some serious business, we will leave y'all with this fabulous video done by our good friend Mr. Carlo Nuccio to help celebrate their victory and the indomitable spirit of the deserving City of New Orleans!
