Favorite Festivals: Hop Sauce Festival

This past weekend I was able to attend the Long Beach Island, NJ 2nd Annual Hop Sauce Festival, something that I had been looking forward to since last year when I found out about the 1st Annual Hop Sauce Festival the day after it occurred. Needless to say, I was seriously bummed I had missed… Continue reading Favorite Festivals: Hop Sauce Festival

Drink This: Best Summer Brews

It seems like every year, more and more summer beers are appearing on tap at my local bars. This year, we decided that it was finally time to figure out which summer beers we should be buying for our barbecues and which we should not.

Eat Here: The Public Kitchen & Bar

It’s been almost two month’s since we ate at The Public Kitchen & Bar during our trip to Savannah, but I can still remember the delicious food like it was yesterday. The restaurant describes itself as “Contemporary Fresh American fare coupled with a sophisticated, mid-century modern decor”, which is pretty spot on.  It took us a… Continue reading Eat Here: The Public Kitchen & Bar

Eat Here: Bowen’s Island Restaurant

I’m only slightly embarrassed to say, that I first found out about Bowen’s Island Restaurant from the Bravo TV show Southern Charm. I always thought it looked like a really cool place to eat since it was right on the water, but I didn’t even know what it’s name was until I came across a… Continue reading Eat Here: Bowen’s Island Restaurant

Eat & Drink Here: Craftsmen Kitchen & Tap House

We ate at Craftsmen Kitchen & Tap House on the first Sunday of our Spring Break trip to Charleston & Savannah. We got there around 3:30pm for what we were calling a super late lunch. We had made reservations the night before just in case it would be crowded, but not all that surprisingly, not… Continue reading Eat & Drink Here: Craftsmen Kitchen & Tap House
