City overview and local pubs?

We will be in Savannah next Sunday and Monday for the first time and wonder what is the best way to get an overview of the cities' history and culture. Also, we love to go to 'local' places for a late afternoon cocktail with other middle aged folks like ourselves. Any suggestions? Cheers!

There are a number of trolley tours that give you a nice overview of the city and it's history.

There are a couple experts on that subject that frequent this board, maybe you will hear from one of them soon. If not, look back a few weeks, it is a common subject for discussion. It is my understanding that some are much better than others.

As far as a drink goes- Kevin Barry's, an Irish Pub on River Street has a very funny Scottish singer-entertainer, JJ Smith, this week. Sunday will be his last night, if you can catch his show I promise you will laugh a lot.

Otherwise there are lots of bars and restaurants with bars all over the historic district, one called Jen's and Friends on Bull Street between Broughton and Congress is very nice and mature with a nice wine list and a full bar. A few door south on the corner is Il Pasticcio, a very good restaurant with a nice bar and a nice view of the street for people watching. There is no shortage of places to get a drink in this town, that is for sure.

A fun locals' pub is McDonough's on East McDonough Street at Drayton, just east of Chippewa Square. They've got great food & atmosphere, nothing fancy but it's an established neighborhood pub.
