The movie version is another favorite of mine. I can't resist it anytime it's on tv. John Cusack is such a great actor that I'll watch him in just about anything! Clint Eastwood did a great job directing it. I like how everyone in the movie seems authentically southern, even if they aren't. Some of the accents are a little thick, but none of them seem put on, which usually bothers me about movies based in the south that don't feature southern actors.
Sassy Lady Chablis! I still haven't seen her show in Savannah, but I hear it is quite exciting!
One of my favorite quotes is by John Cusack's character, after he realizes that things are a little bit different down south:
'I've only been here three days and it's just a shooting, but give it time, okay. This place is fantastic. It's like Gone With the Wind on Mescalin. I know you're my agent. Listen to me, they walk imaginary pets here, Garland. On a f-ing leash. Alright? And they're all heavily armed and drunk. New York is boring!'
Mercer House is featured in the movie and one of the spots I'll have to put on my places to see and photograph on my next trip to Savannah.

I'll have to decide what to subscribe to now. Got any suggestions? Food & Wine? Bon Apetit?I hear that Cook's Illustrated is really good, but I love a magazine with delicious food photos...

(Don't tell anyone, but the preview looks so good that I got a little misty! Lord knows what will happen when I see the entire thing...)

According to the calendar it is officially fall, but here in Georgia it's barely feeling like fall weather. Thankfully, the temperatures are finally starting to cool off! Pretty soon it will be great camping weather, which I am really looking forward to.
