Eat It and Like It: Don’t miss these fun foodie events

12 Jul 2017

We usually spend our summertime at the beach or up to our eyeballs in a swimming pool ’round these parts. It’s just too brutal to do anything otherwise.

But if some of our favorite eats in and around the Savannah area are going to throw a party, well then we are very likely to line up to eat it and like it. Here’s a list of a few events you need to put on your calendar over the next couple of weeks. We don’t list events often, but when a few really good ones come across my desk at the same time, then I’m gonna rack ’em, stack ’em and blast ’em out the door.

Bastille Day Celebration at Circa 1875

We celebrate our independence on July 4, but our friends in France enjoy theirs on July 14.

The guys at Circa 1875 on Whitaker Street are throwing a party. A full-blown, weekend-long celebration on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. There will be a crepe station set up and musical entertainment most of the night. Yes, you can still enjoy dinner, but I’d make a reservation sooner rather than later because they will likely fill up if they haven’t already.

Chef David is going to prepare a different authentic French specialty each night in addition to their regular menu. If you’ve never eaten in the cellar at 1875, ask for a seat down there. One of my favorite dining coves in the city. You’d never know you are 4,000 miles from Les Deux Magots.

Back in the Day Bakery/Southern Soul Barbeque Pop-Up

No, your eyes do not deceive you. Two of the most popular spots to eat in the South happen to be less than 100 miles away from each other.

Lucky you, for one morning only, you’ll find them both in one spot. The barbecue masters from Southern Soul on St. Simons Island are rolling up into Savannah’s Starland neighborhood July 15. The exact menu is TBA, but there will likely be some of their amazing pulled pork and more.

Back in the Day will undoubtedly offer their flaky biscuits to go along with the barbecue. The invite says 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., but you know how barbecue works — when it is gone, it’s gone, y’all. Not a good idea to show up at 2:56 p.m. and then get bent out of shape when you find out all of the goods been got. Get there early.

Anniversary Luau at Hitch

If you haven’t made it to one of their Saturday Disco Brunches, then you don’t know the guys at Hitch know how to throw a party.

It’s hard to believe it has been a year since the very popular Treylor Park on Bay Street spun off a second location on Liberty and Drayton streets. Hitch was intended to be a spot for locals and has largely lived up to that billing.

Saturday afternoon is their one-year anniversary party featuring a whole pig roast and plenty of sides for only $10. The pig will make his appearance at 1 p.m. and the party will last until 5 p.m. Good opportunity to enjoy a Saturday afternoon indoors.

Big Bon Pizza Pop-Up in Pooler

Hey, Pooler! Looking for some zing in your zing-zang? Big Bon Pizza is coming to your city!

If you’ve not tried it yet, this is a must. Big Bon Pizza is a food truck. No brick and mortar location to visit. The ladies in charge move around the area and offer their pizzas in different locations depending on the day of the week. Last week on Bull Street in Savannah, they sold out of everything in two hours. Yes, the pizzas are that good, so you’ve got to get them while they are hot.

My understanding is July 29 will be their first pop-up in Pooler. They’ll be at The Front Porch coffeeshop on Collins Street. There will be live music and plenty of fun from 5:30 to 9 p.m.

See you on TV,

Jesse
