So after a tour of Wormsloe Historic Site, I decided it was time to head to downtown Savannah again, and try this cocktail that my friend Courtney insisted I get.
I parked in the only free parking area I saw the last time and walked over to The Shrimp Factory on River Street (River Front)

It was around 30 minutes to noon. I talked to the bartender about this drink called the Chatham Artillery Punch. He said it was a popular drink but he could only serve me one or two but not more. I guess it was FULLY LOADED.

So I ordered it. It was strong but I didn’t like it as much.

Feeling hungry, and since lunch time was approaching I asked him about the specials and recommendations. He told me to get the Pine Park Stew their signature dish. So I did.

It came as a kettle full of southern bouillabaisse with potatoes, onions, peppers, shrimp, flounder, oysters, crab, scallops, cherry tomatoes & house seasonings

I cannot wait to dig in.

The kettle still has a second serving left. All for just $15.00. That’s a steal for lunch.

It was by far the best thing I have had in Savannah. I thought the Olde Pink House food was great – which is was, but this was waaaaaay better.

After lunch, I needed to get a walk in since I had two serving portions. I enjoyed walking around the cobble stone streets.

I headed back to the First African American Baptist Church to see if it was open.

Went through the side entrance.

And entered the basement. Unfortunately I just missed a tour 30 minutes ago and would have to wait 2 hours for the next one. I didn’t have the time so I left.

Walked around bloated and still happy about the delicious meal. Then sat at a park bench and meditated for a while.

And then headed out to meet my college buddy Saderrick in Statesboro, Georgia.

Reflections:
I cannot stop thinking about how great the food was at the Shrimp Factory. Thank you for the indirect suggestion Courtney. I know you asked me to try the Chatham Artillery Punch. It was definitely strong, but kind of too fruity tasting for me. And had I not attempted to try it out, I would have never ever tasted the deliciousness of their signature dish: the Pine Park Stew. Oh sweet little piece of heaven.
