The Cotton Exchange - Shrimp Po Boy

Savannah Seafood Festival

This last weekend was Savannah’s annual Seafood Festival.  Since it was also Yon’s last weekend here we knew we had to check it out.  Unfortunately Mother Nature didn’t agree and gave us rain ALL DAY Saturday.  A little wet couldn’t deter us though and we loaded up and headed down to River Street.

I think the rain scared some of the vendors away.  There were multiple craft tents up with some unique products but the variety for seafood was rather limited.  Chris grabbed a beer as we walked around but the general consensus of our group was to duck into a restaurant instead.  We ended up hitting up The Cotton Exchange which is one of our favorites.  For starters, we shared the hot crab dip which is SO GOOD.

Em was in a particularly friendly mood and happily chatted with everyone who walked by making our dining experience a ton of fun.  For my main dish, I went with the shrimp po boy for fun.  I never had a po boy before  moving to Savannah and I have to say I am a fan!

On our way back to the car, we hit up River Street Sweets for a little dessert and a “Flat Stanley” photo op.  My youngest nephew sent us his Flat Stanley for his school project and I was on a mission to complete our photos for him.

Finally, we stopped to watch the Kentucky Derby before heading home.  All in all, we all had a ton of fun and are looking forward to next year.  Hopefully next time Savannah gets the memo and blesses us with sunshine 😉

  1. I love River Street Sweets! Their taffy is to die for! My hubbie actually proposed on River Street so I just have a major soft spot for all things Savannah. :)
