Savannah does indeed have a much larger seedy side to it than Charleston does. I almost mentioned this but thought better of it.

tomorrow is passover - I have 35 people for seder. we use a hadaga (basically a hymn/prayer book) that we put together full of fun stuff, and we have all sorts of fun props like a pinyata. our seder rocks.

Sounds like an awesome seder. I used to host great seders, and I kind of miss doing it. One seder in college got us in trouble because we trashed the antique oak boardroom table in the faculty dining room by dancing on it :O

Charleston is a beautiful city, but is overrun by tourists, moreso than Savannah. Large swaths of downtown Charleston are like Disneyworld at this point. My family has been in the city since it was founded, but most of them have moved out of downtown as it's become just impossible to live in. It is beautiful though, and similar to Savannah in many ways.

If you love Savannah, you should definitely check it out. Everyone I know who isn't from there loves visiting, and I admittedly have a somewhat different view of the city than most do smile.gif

One of the things I love about Savannah is that little bit of grimy swampiness it has. Either way, there's only one way to find out - visit! Maybe we'll make a long weekend of it once we get settled after the move.

I've heard great things about Savannah, I'd like to check it out someday.

Savannah is awesome. Definitely worth doing at least once. Everyone I know who loves Charleston also loves Savannah, even if they prefer one or the other.

Will do. Mrs. A hates heat, and southern food, so it'll probably be solo. Anybody up for an SF meet-up in Savannah?

Things with the upcoming move are going great. We finally found a daycare we both like, so that's an enormous weight off my shoulders. Finding a place that was right for the little man has been by far the most stressful part of the move.

Plus, we're trying to downsize considerably with possessions when we move. This is partially because we won't have as much space in the new place, but also because we own a lot of stuff we just don't need. Thus far, that has gone really well. There has been very little friction between the missus and me on what, exactly, we don't care to keep, and stuff we've posted on Craig's List is selling like mad. It all went up last night, and over half of it is spoken for at our asking price. We'll probably have a yard sale at some point, too, so it will be nice to extract some cash given how expensive the move is going to be.

Also, we met with a property manager, and he sounded optimistic that we'd be able to get what we want each month for the house.

Oh, and I woke up in the middle of the night with a violent grumble in my stomach that had me up for the rest of the night. That doesn't so much make me happy, but it seemed to have passed by the time I finished napping this morning. What I feared might be a stomach bug looks more like just a bit of a disturbance, and I'm even getting hungry again. Still, I took the day off, since I wasn't feeling well and hardly slept, and I'm glad I did. I've been able to relax and take care of some things around the house.

Well, that was a crazy weekend. Wife's friend spent the weekend with us, along with her nephew.

And T-bone accepted a job offer. A lot of work ahead of me in this new position, but I don't mind hard work. I may be posting less, though.

Made 10 gallons of belgian beer this weekend.

From what I've seen and heard, I believe it. To me, Savannah is sort of a cleaner New Orleans, so I guess that would mean it's somewhere between New Orleans and Charleston.

Summer can be next-level uncomfortable, especially if you're not used to heat and humidity, but fall and spring are great. Winter isn't too bad, either, though it can get just chilly enough to kind of kill the fun of walking down the river and such.

Does "Southern food" rule out seafood and lowcountry stuff? You can eat really well in Savannah and avoid the traditional/well-known Southern fare without too much effort.

I could be talked into a meet-up. laugh.gif I haven't been to Savannah in about 1.5 years, which been the longest stretch I've gone without a visit in almost a decade.

It's finally starting to settle in as I do the requisite paperwork and other preparations and whatnot, but I'm starting medical school this fall!

You aren't going to let a little thing like doing your job well get in the way of your posting, are you?!?

Well that didn't tell me shit, although it did reveal that the Worst Ice Cream in America is the same corporate entity as TH.

Good question. She loved the food we had in Charleston, but absolutely hated the stuff we had in NOLA. She got really sick after about a day of deep fried everything and barely ate for the rest of the week.

Well I just started planning a trip to Atlanta for mid April, sounds like a meet-up is in order!

I'm headed to Savannah in October. one of those meetings where we pick the venue and everyone flies in for a three day meeting. Savannah sounded good to everyone but now I wish I had thought of pushing Charleston. I like Savannah but it would have been cool to try something new since I've been to savannah thrice in the last two years

So like, the part where it's the the US website of TH didn't ring any bells? How about a search for Timmys in Ohio? Would that make things clearer?

Timmy's is far superior to Dunkin Donuts.
