Final Weekly Wrap Up: Jen's & Friends and Kitchen's on the Square

September 1, 2014
It feels a little weird writing this post now because a) I feel like tomorrow is still the weekend since it's a holiday and b) It's the last time co-hosting this link up!  Anyway, on Friday my friend and I drove downtown because we wanted to try out a place called Jen's & Friends. We liked the martinis we had at Lulu's Chocolate bar last week so much that my friend suggested we go to Jen's & Friends because they have hundreds of different kinds of martinis that can be ordered! We were looking for a place to sit down and relax, but unfortunately when we stopped by it was packed.  That can happen pretty easily there since the bar is tiny and the seating is very limited. Since we didn't want to stand and drink a martini/feel like a sardine, we decided to just go back to Lulu's and have one there since we liked the atmosphere, drinks, and desserts so much last week. There were still plenty of seats available when we got there (though there weren't any by the time we left), so it worked out perfectly for us.  I got a dreamsicle martini and my friend and I split a piece of Banana Nutella cake.  



Afterwards, we walked around, people watched, took some pictures, and of course peered in restaurants and stores we would like to try out next time.  One store that looked interesting to me was called Kitchens on the Square.  It was full of all sorts of cute kitchen accessories.  I looked them up online since the store was closed when we walked on by, and they had a few things I thought were neat like these handy taco plates.  I mean, is this not genius??  It prevents some the toppings from spilling out like they would if you just plopped them on a plate.

Another cool item I saw were these lemon and lime fruit covers for when you want to save the other half of the fruit.  Actually, I thought that all of their gadgets for under $10 were pretty nifty! (I swear this is not a sponsored post, haha.)

Then we walked by the Olde Pink House because we were told that it is one of the nicest restaurants in Savannah and Everett told me that it's where all the celebrities like Sandra Bullock go.  I'd like to go there sometime, but obviously not until I start getting some paychecks!!

Here are some more pictures from our little excursion...





On Saturday, Everett, Jared, and I decided to eat at Mellow Mushroom since Jared had never been to one before.  We got a veggie pizza and one called the Maui Wowie which had pesto instead of tomato sauce, pineapple, ham, chicken, and mozzarella cheese.  Jared and I liked the Maui Wowie, but all three of us think the veggie pizza at Vinnie Van Go-Go's is far more delicious. 



We walked down to River Street and went into some shops and also to the River Street Market Place.  I really could go crazy buying all the regional specialties there!  Then, we decided to go back to Jen's and Friends to see if it was crowded or not.  It was full, but not as bad as it was on Friday night.  The martini menu was pretty impressive...They had martinis flavors that I never would have thought of in a million years.  I ended up getting a Rice Krispie Treat martini.  There was actually marshmallow all over the rim of my cup along with actual Rice Krispies.  They actually put a real Rice Krispie treat in the drink, too!  Other flavors that I'd like to try one day are: Birthday Cake (it comes with a piece of cake attached to the glass!), Oreo, Toasted Coconut, Bourbon Pecan Pie, and Georgia Peach.  There is even one called chocolate covered bacon.  I would recommend Jen's & Friends if you're looking for a good drink to take with you.  You can just order it in a to-go cup and drink it around town.  I wouldn't advise going there if you want to sit at a table and rest your feet after a long day. 



Yesterday I didn't do too much besides binge watch Dexter on Netflix and then I went for a walk with Everett in the small town that we live in outside of Savannah.  Some of the shops left items that they were selling out on display even though they were closed.  I couldn't believe it!! There were a couple of wreaths out with the price tags on them and I was so surprised that they were just out in the open for anyone to take, but Everett said, "This is about as small-town America as you can get and they do that here!"  I find that really nice, actually.  I FINALLY started getting a little excited about fall on Sunday night because the shop windows were decorated for fall and the temperature was a bit lower than it usually is!





Link up your weekend recap posts below.  As I mentioned before this will be the last week Rachael and I will be hosting our link up.  Thanks so much to everyone who ever participated!

  9. I love the taco plates! I love plates that are for a certain type of food. Do you remember the pizza plates. Only one slice of pizza would fit on it because it was shaped like a pizza. Best thing ever.
