Lunch with Friends

I’ve been going to water aerobics classes with a fabulous group of ladies (and a few men) for years. A few times a year we meet somewhere to enjoy a meal, conversation, and lots of laughs.

This week we met at Cohen’s Retreat in Savannah which was originally a retirement home for men. In 2012, new owners took over and transformed the space into a delightful restaurant with delicious food, a venue for special events, a gift shop, and rental cottages

As we walked through the front doors we knew we were in for a special treat when we saw the vintage ashtrays decorating the walls and a mantle lined with Old Spice bottles and shaving brushes. A wall with a family tree made from heirloom silverware was the focal point in the Perennial Room where we ate. Mounted on another wall of the room was an antique bicycle built for two.

Did I mention the food was delicious?

Good food and laughing with friends in a memorable setting made me smile this week.

This post was inspired by the Weekly Smile over at Trent’s World. What made you smile this week?
