a) Where else would you get this kind of reception for a Power Point Presentation about an economic study?
Last week I had the pleasure of sitting in on the presentation by Randy Cohen of Americans for the Arts on the economic impact of nonprofit arts and culture on Savannah. It was held in the beautiful Jepson Center for the Arts and there was scrumptious wining and dining afterwards as the attendants were serenaded by the Benedeto Players.

A lot of numbers and math were thrown over my head, but Mr. Cohen managed to keep it short, keep it relevant and it was obvious he was passionate about what he was talking about. Which brings me to:
b) even though Savannah’s near the lower end of our population bracket (100K – 250K), Savannah locals and visitors spend way more than the national average on arts related activities.
Which says to me, Savannah appreciates the arts and we’re not overcrowded. Sounds like a great place to live to me.
c) Where else would you be asked by the Assistant City Manager what they can do to make doing business here easier for you while eating some BBQ bacon-wrapped shrimp?
