Belly Up and Guzzle at Murphy’s Law

“Misery loves company and company loves beer”, says Shelley Lowther and we agree. So head for Murphy’s Law Irish Pub on Sunday July 11 from 9:30 pm.  Come and watch the World Cup final, belly up to the bar and commiserate with each other about how England and USA got cheated out of a World Cup shot. And get one heck of a bargain in the process. For $20, all-you-can-drink Guinness, Harp or Smithwick’s.  Plus you get a 2010 souvenir World Cup Glass. Hang on to that. One day it’ll be treasure for your kids.

Basil’s Pizza: It’s All Greek to Us!

They call it a pizzeria; they rave about their pizza. But there’s plenty of good pizza in Savannah.  There is precious little good Greek anything.  But Basil’s has some of the best Greek food anywhere on the eastern seaboard. The Avgolemono Soup, a classic Greek soup made from fresh chicken broth, lots of lemon, egg, and rice, is creamy, thick and better than any Avgolemono I have ever eaten outside of Greece.  The Dolmadas, stuffed grape leaves, tender young grape leaves, filled with a perfectly spiced blend of lamb and rice, are definitely Savannah’s best. It’s a definite mystery as to where they get their Feta Cheese and Kalamata olives, but they are another “Best.” As is their Pita bread…made in-house, perhaps? Whatever the case, if you love Greek food, head for Basil’s—216 Johnny Mercer Blvd., 897-6400.  .
