'Wiches and Spirits and Brews: Zeigler House Inn Makes Fall in #Savannah Introductions

SAVANNAH Georgia (October 11, 2013) -- "Get packin' then scamper along, even for last minute travel to Savannah for autumn holidays 2013," says Jackie Heinz at Zeigler House Inn. Just in time for the beautiful fall holiday season -- Columbus Day, Halloween and Thanksgiving -- our Savannah inn's fun-loving innkeeper is introducing you to the best lunch in Savannah, some served in the best bars in Savannah.

Jackie's personal lunch -- "Duck Pate Panini"
served with orzo salad,
fresh grapes, and glass of red wine.
For an of-the-moment getaway to Savannah, our southern-born owner/innkeeper has conjured up a list of uncommon Top 10 'Wiches and Spirits and Brews' for autumn 2013. The brews open up imaginations for unlimited concoctions!

Our holiday gems offer options for bargain holidays with a stop at ramshackled tiki-style pub, a downtown cafe with lane-only access, or fine dining surroundings along the Savannah River or a prestigious 18th era mansion. We believe our pairings for "'Wiches and Spirits and Brews" will help new tourists and our inn's returning or new guests to delve into the core of Savannah's rich dining experiences for Fall 2013.

In part our recommendations are based also on the uncommon ways that Savannah's friendly people make us feel when we dine in these local character-rich #Savannah cafes, pubs and restaurants. Enjoy!
