Mom/dad go to Tybee Island, Georgia every year – just a little hop, skip and jump for a short vacation to de-stress. They try to go to some of their regular places every year like the Moon River Brewing Company located in Savannah, Georgia. (This restaurant is located on West Bay Street and about 12-14 miles from Tybee Island.) Here’s a picture of the restaurant from the outside.
This restaurant has been featured on a lot of television shows and is suppose to be super haunted.Moon River Brewing Company is one of Savannah’s oldest buildings that was originally built in 1821. It was the City Hotel and was the first hotel and post office in the town. The hotel actually closed when General Sherman led the union army through Georgia. By the time General Sherman actually made it to Savannah, the town was like a ghost town and the buildings were deserted.
In 1990, the building was renovated and the Moon River Brewing Company was opened. Since then, there have been numerous accounts of hauntings and ghosts. People have seen bottles being thrown, people have been touched, pushed and even slapped by unknown ‘ghosts’. One time, Ghost Hunters actually went to the location and caught on camera the dark figure of “Toby” who hides out in the billiard room playing. Even Toby has been known to push customers or workers.
There’s also spooks on the top floors that are still to this day unrenovated… to us. A glowing white apparition has been seen on these floors that is believed to be a worker who died at the hotel in the late 1800’s. In the 1990’s when the Moon River Brewing Company was attempting to renovate the top floors, the foreman’s wife was violently pushed down the staircase.
So mom/dad have braved the stories and have ventured into this restaurant to dine in the past. They prefer to go for dinner when the lights are low creating just the right atmosphere for spooks. They can see and hear the activity from the bar area, the laughter of customers and workers all who were oblivious to the supernatural happenings – or were they?.
Mom highly recommends an awesome blackberry Martini. She says that it has quote, “Some wicked spirits in it”. I don’t think it was the kind of spirits that go boo in the middle of the night though. Dad says the wait staff disappear for a while as well but again I don’t think it was supernatural. Dad also says every time they go to this restaurant someone eats all of his delicious Tacodilla too. Personally I just don’t think he remembers eating it because he snarfs it it down so quickly because it’s delicious – snorts. And just for those few who are wondering what the pig is a Tacodilla – here’s the scoop of what he said. A cheese quesadilla folded like a taco and filled with smoked brisket, pico de gallo and chipotle sauce. It does sound good, huh?
And there was another disappearance that mom/dad always report. Their money when the check comes – snorts. Okay so they’ve never experienced anything per say haunted happening during their dining experiences in the past. But they do report that it has an electric feeling of something spooky.
