One of our esteemed vendors, Johnny Harris Restaurant, will have will have a waterfall of barbecue sauce for your divulging pleasure at their booth. How is this the real Fountain of Youth you ask?

A Vodka Revolution

Until recently, making small-batch spirits in your barn usually lead to white lightning and Duke boys in an orange Charger. Now, small-batch is the new thing.

One of our DineSouth sponsors, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, has revolutionized small-batch vodka starting with a single homemade still. Being a bourbon girl myself, I will go out on a limb here and say that Tito has done one more and actually made vodka taste good! Crazy, I know.

Here are three cocktails perfect for enjoying Tito’s.

Start Your Engines for the Savannah Speed Classic

Friday, October 24 – Sunday, October 26

We all do it. We sit in traffic pretending to rev our engines, imagining we are in much classier cars than we own—or can afford– ready to race to the front. Burning rubber and the roar of engines are in the very fabric that makes up Savannah. That’s right; racing is a part of Savannah’s history. In fact the Hostess City was the birthplace of the American Grand Prix. In ode to that history, the Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival & Concours d’Elegance reopened the track at Hutchinson Island with the Savannah Speed Classic and revived Savannah’s racing culture.

4 In-Season Fruits for Fall

Our good friends at Enmark are stepping up their fruit game. Here are four fruits to look out for this fall. Or check out Enmark’s booth at DineSouth for the freshest local fruits around!

1. Apples

The quintessential American fruit, apples are in their prime during the fall. The perfect fruit for the health conscious, apples contain no fat, sodium or cholesterol and are a good source of fiber. I’m sure all that goes out the window when you mix it with sugar and butter and shove it in a piecrust.

Beware of FOMO

Your plan of attack to not miss out on any of our Top Choice Events going on this weekend.

October is filled with events and everyone is experiencing a little fear of missing out (or FOMO) but not to worry! Here at South we’ve devised a way for you to get your fill of Fall Festivals –and maybe even a pumpkin or two.

1. Prioritize. Decide which festivals are most important to you.
I know you can tell I’m all about the pumpkin patch but I know that’s not for everyone. Some people have a soft spot for Daschunds in which case you won’t want to miss the Weiner Dog Races at Morrell Park on Saturday morning as a part of Oktoberfest’s fun filled weekend.
