What could be more magical than having a rubber ducky floating around in a nice big glass of champagne? The Little Duck Diner creates this fun addition to our childhood bath times, just with alcohol now. Located in the heart of downtown Savannah, Georgia, the Little Duck Diner serves breakfast and lunch all day. They have a variety of breakfast dishes from eggs, waffles and pancakes. They also have Asian inspired dishes along with burgers, sandwiches and tacos.
I started my order with La Colombe Coffee, which was very strong yet smooth at the same time. Next up, the Lavender Bubble Bath Bellini complete with a rubber ducky in the drink. I was very impressed with the drink, and it is definitely Instagram worthy. For an appetizer, I tried the Crab Risotto Balls. They were delicious, and the hint of risotto mixed with the crab was perfectly flavored. For my meal, I was in the mood for breakfast so I ordered the Egg and Sausage Croissant. The egg is fried and cage free, with sausage, cheese and home fries. It was good, but not amazing. I was more impressed with my drinks and the appetizer.
Next time, I plan to try a lunch item. The portion sizes are perfect and you will not leave hungry. The Little Duck Diner is also very reasonably priced. The next time you are exploring downtown Savannah, stop in and try this little gem.
There’s something hauntingly beautiful about the open road. The long winding turns are direct reflections of the trials we face each day. Each parallel line leads us to our next destination. We are so quick to reach our destinations that we forget about our journeys. Do we stop and enjoy the scenery? Do we allow the wind to hit our face? Do we stop and meet someone new? Unfortunately, we forget how much freedom lies in a single moment.
I received a reminder from a good friend of mine in LA that Norman Reedus’ second season of “RIDE” starts this Sunday. He texted me a photo of the huge billboard sitting up high on Sunset Boulevard advertising the show.
He knows I love Norman Reedus, but we also share a connection to LA. Earlier this year, I traveled to LA and was able to take in the sites. It’s nice to be able to recognize Sunset Boulevard and have that connection with my friend. If I didn’t go to LA, then Sunset wouldn’t have any meaning to me because I would’ve experienced it. The experiences we have together build a unique connection as we continue through our journeys in life.
Last year, I watched “RIDE with Norman Reedus” for the first time. I watched it because Reedus is awesome, and I was lucky enough to meet him a few years ago. I was curious to see what the show was about because I expected a motorcycle education reality show. “RIDE” is about connections, life and our world. The way a pirate longs for the sea, Reedus owns the road. He’s a modern-day pirate taking control of the road with his first mates. Each week, he travels to different destinations around the world. What makes this show unique is Reedus educates us on how to live in the moment. He rides into different cities and learns from the locals. He takes a minute to breathe and enjoy the world around him.
After watching the first season, I realized two things. First, I need to travel to new destinations and actually learn how to experience the moment. Second, I need to slow down. I think we all need to slow down. What I really appreciate about “RIDE” is, Reedus is never in a hurry to move to the next destination. He is so immersed in the moment, and he captures each city in an exotic way. Reedus is such a rebel in life, but he has a cause for it all. He wants us to see our world, appreciate others and not be afraid to take those chances. He truly is a rebel with a cause.
If you haven’t had the chance to watch “RIDE” make sure you check out the season two special premiere this Sunday at 11PM EST on AMC. All episodes will air Mondays at 9PM EST on AMC.
There are many different restaurants in my hometown that I fail to explore. I typically have my normal spots that I like to go to because I know I can never go wrong with my choices. Well, what kind of life is that if I keep eating and going to the same restaurants? I need to expand my food horizons, so I am going to start highlighting my new food adventures.
I was craving Greek food, so instead of going to Gyro Wraps I tried a local restaurant called Al Salaam Deli. They specialize in Middle Eastern cuisine and have been in the Savannah, Georgia area for over 15 years. So, for 15 years I’ve been going to Gyro Wraps instead of supporting a wonderful local business.
When I walked into the restaurant, I was immediately welcomed by two gentlemen. I placed my order for the lamb gyro, and was told to make myself comfortable. The restaurant is also a small grocery store, with different Middle Eastern foods and spices. There is a wall of National Geographic covers circling around. I asked one of the employees if they collected all of the magazines. He explained that he’s been collecting National Geographic magazines since black and white cover editions. The restaurant is so popular that actor Liam Hemsworth came in earlier as he was scouting for local areas for his film. I missed a Hemsworth by a few minutes, dang it!
My food came out hot and ready, and I was quite pleased. The lamb was very tender on the warm pita bread. The gyro was not covered with too much tzatziki, it was just right. I finished my meal, and was not rushed out like at some restaurants. It was a refreshing experience to have authentic food in my own backyard. It made me realize how much we need to support local business because they truly care about the customer experience and their product.
I give Al Salaam Deli 5 out of 5 stars and would definitely return in the future!
Next week I am setting out on a new adventure. This will be the first time I will be going somewhere non Disney related in three years. I am traveling up to Pennsylvania and Ohio to see relatives. It will be interesting because I will get to see a different culture, and hopefully find some Disney treasures along way! Please follow along on my Instagram page as I share my adventure next week! I also have interesting ideas that I plan to share with you once I return from my trip. Please stay tuned and thank you all!
