Be prepared to bid on these priceless opportunities:
Picnic at Pojo Point for 30-100 People! Delight your friends with this special treat: a picnic with Savannah-style fried chicken, BBQ, and fixin’s! A museum house of sorts, this amazing place is the home of talented artists Julie Macintosh and Charles (Charlie) Ellis, III. Their organized chaos has been collected through the years, as they traveled around the country and abroad. You have never seen anything like this–anywhere–as Pojo Point is unrivaled! With a beautiful view overlooking the marsh, it is the unique product of this creative couple and their remarkable sense of humor. In addition to their own whimsical artwork, Julie and Charlie have perfected the art of entertaining, welcoming all with their well-honed Southern hospitality. What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon! *$500 credit toward food included.
Grab your friends and paint the town at the snazziest venue in Savannah! Your party will be the bee’s knees with a Private Cocktail Class for up to 20 People at Congress Street Up, the authentic 1920s speakeasy at the American Prohibition Museum.
Would you like that shaken, or stirred? Certified bartenders will teach you how to make classic cocktails while discovering the history behind them. Learn new skills, enjoy your creations, and show off your newly acquired talents by playing bartender at your next event. Congress Street Up has been designed to embody an authentic 1920s speakeasy bar, complete with tin punch ceiling and parquet floors, wooden and brick back bars, period music, and costumed bartenders. All of our cocktails, wines, and beers can trace their origins back to Prohibition. Everything served is the cat’s meow, so “dress to impress” for this special night on the town. This speakeasy is like an upscale dining experience in cocktails!
Escape to the mountains of North Carolina! Enjoy three days and three nights in a charming 4 Bed, 4 Bath cottage, located in Golf Estates Country Club of Sapphire Valley, close to fabulous Cashiers, NC. Your accommodations will allow the use of two pools, a health club, hiking trails, and swimming at the private Lake Fairfield, with battery operated boats and paddle boards available for rental. Golfers will delight in the number of courses in the area; you could play a different course every day! Great shopping and restaurants are close by in Cashiers and in Highlands. And you have to try The Library Kitchen and Bar, located at the entrance to the complex. Of course, what is most spectacular in this area is the incredible natural beauty, with unspoiled woodlands and many waterfalls. In fact, US Highway 64 is known as the Mountain Waters Scenic Byway; you can either pass under some of the magnificent falls in the comfort of your car or bravely slide down Cashier’s Sliding Rock and swim in the mountain pools.
