Today I took a ride down to Savannah, about an hour away. As always, the first part of the plan involved choosing where to eat. I decided on The Grey, a remodeled Greyhound Bus Station that had excellent reviews. The whole building is gorgeous, inside and out, very retro, with gleaming silver and plenty of deep blue accents, reflecting the history. The diner section is what’s open for lunch:
Which is where the original diner at the station is located. Here’s a shot of the same space in 1958
Prices are reasonable, with the Blue Plate Special clocking in at $11.99 for a nice thigh and leg of chicken, on a healthy pile of very good potato salad, and 4 housemade pickle slices.
The servers were both efficient and friendly, it was a nice lunch. After running a few errands, I headed to Bonaventure Cemetary, made famous in “The Book”, which is how locals refer to Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Bonaventure has plots that reach back to the Spanish American war on it’s 100 or so acres. It’s really a serene spot on the river.
