Is Savannah, GA In Your Future?

Love her or not, Paula Deen has brought butter back. Banished for years to the "unhealthy" food aisle, Paula Deen has single handedly made it cool again. I, for one, think she might even be a bigger ambassador for butter than Julia Child.

Ms. Deen however isn't just about butter though. Several years ago she signed on with one of the best ham companies out there- Smithfield. Well, for all you Smithfield and Paula Deen fans out there they have created the ultimate contest.

From the official announcement:
A trip for winner and one guest to Savannah, GA in October 2011 (dates TBD with Paula Deen); including round-trip coach class air transportation, two night hotel stay, Paula Deen Tour of Savannah, Lunch at The Lady Sons, Dinner at Uncle Bubba’s Restaurant and transportation, additional meals for two days. See contest rules and regulations for a complete description of the grand prize.

I have to admit, Savannah is high on my list of "to visit" spots!

I was born and raised in Savannah, GA, and think it is one of the most beautiful cities in the country. I am, however, not a huge Paula Deen fan. I respect her rise from relative obscurity to superstardom, but I think there's more to Savannah than just Paula Deen and her billion dollar empire. Getting to go to Savannah for free, is a very good thing. Only eating at The Lady and Sons and Uncle Bubba's, would be a TRAGIC mistake. Savannah has so many smaller, less commercial, more authentic Southern food spots. I hope you get to go there, soon. But please, check with some locals before you believe the hype from the tour companies!!

I went to Savannah in April and had such an amazing time down there - yes The Lady and Sons was delicious, but the city itself was wonderful and packed with great restaurants! I would highly recommend a trip regardless!

Restaurant Reviews: A dead art?
