Great Peacock from Nashville will kick off a new collaboration between MusicFile Productions (parent company of Savannah Stopover) and The Grey, which was recently chosen by Food & Wine as one of the five 2015 Restaurants of the Year, an honor which “celebrates the most exceptional openings of the past year.”
The inaugural Stopover In The Yard will be held on Sunday, June 21, from 1 to 4 p.m. in the breezy, spacious outdoor area at The Grey on MLK in downtown Savannah. It’s the space that mid-century Greyhound busses picked up passengers from the terminal. Tickets will be $21, and will be available first-come, first served. The price includes a hearty plate of food, one drink, and an afternoon of music (the band gets rolling at 2 p.m.).
The Grey is routinely using The Yard for casual lunches on weekends. I was there just yesterday for an amazing $7 plate of sausage, onions and peppers, kale salad with a peanut sauce, and potato salad.
Great Peacock’s lovely debut LP Making Ghosts was released last month to critical acclaim — give it a listen:
The Grey will continue the Stopover In The Yard series with Thomas Wynn & The Believers on July 11. The series will continue on 8/1, 9/19, 10/10, and 10/31.
