Sweet Savannah

Just back from a brief trip to Savannah to celebrate the end of exams--boy, that place would be a good place to start or move a law school!  Thanks to a recommendation by Fernando Teson (my friend and colleague), my wife and I arrived in time for dinner at the delicious and old-school Savannah kitchen of Elizabeth on 37th St. We had trouble getting a place in town on short notice for Saturday night, but we stayed the next night at the beautiful and relatively new Mansion on Forsyth Park, which adequately gives a flavor of the "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" aura for which Savannah has become famous in recent years.

I'm with you, Dan. Savannah is great. My grandparents lived there for about 15 years, and I visited often. And, I proposed to my wife there.
