Urban Adventures

With Savannah St. Patty’s in the rear view, the lion has long since retired to its cage and the lamb has been roaming free for a while. At least, it feels that way—the months of drear seem a near distant memory and we’ve long since ushered in the delectable Savannah springtime weather, a magical season in a magical place. If you’ve had your fair share of romantic spring night strolls and favorite daytime outdoor, sitting spots, South is here to help you add a bit more excitement to your life. Don’t start taking the year’s loveliness and bloom for granted. You might need something more active—no, more adventurous to do.

An “Evening of Artistry” at the Mansion

Last Thursday night, I had the pleasure of attending An Evening of Artistry that was put on by The Kessler Collection’s Savannah properties. I was treated to a tour of The Mansion, a dinner at 700 Drayton and some live music at Rocks on the Roof.

As I am new to town, this was all very exciting, but I would fully recommend checking out these locations to not only tourists but also locals. The Mansion is worth stopping in whether you are staying the night or not, simply to see the inspirational art and architecture. Every piece was selected for specific reasons by the owner of The Kessler Collection, and some were even found at flea markets in Paris. If you can swing it, ask for a tour from one of the staff so that you can learn all the fun facts about the place. Take the carpeting in the ballroom, for example—it was produced by the same company that made the carpeting for the Titanic.

After the tour, we had a quick mixology lesson by the bartender of Casimir’s Lounge. My favorite? The red, white and blue drink that celebrates the Mansion’s 125th anniversary and tastes like candy. Next, we went over to 700 Drayton for a few courses that were served alongside and paired with various pieces of art. This easy idea is perfect for you to do at home—choose a few pieces of art that can be paired with a few dishes, such as a picture of a volcano paired with a molten chocolate lava cake for dessert.

Once dinner was over, I was sufficiently stuffed full of delicious food, but we still had one more stop—drinks at Rocks on the Roof. This swanky bar has one of the best views of the river in town and is a relaxing place to sit outside once the weather stays consistently warm. What really made Rocks on the Roof special was the live music by Mike Korbar and the easy feeling of being with friends in a cool atmosphere.
