Hi! My name is Jennifer and I live in downtown Valdosta...and I just started following your blog!Our downtown had only really begun an in-depth restoration about 4-5 years ago (you were spot on there) and we are getting more and more support from the community as a destination place. It has been awesome to see the massive changes since I moved here in 2003! I hope you come back to our lovely downtown since we have a new Main Street Director (Amanda Peacock) who is a vibrant and passionate individual...especially about keeping the oldies like King's Grill around while adding and encourage new additions to the area.King's Grill is a great establishment and is owned by a dear friend of mine and his family. While it is certainly short on glamor, it definitely has heart. They also use real butter. Score!My friend Jessica owns Red Door and I hope that you get a chance to stop by and visit her eclectic establishment. Her dogs are cheap and good, and the same goes for the records. Her store is also a hub for hipster and professional alike. You can talk local shop, discuss bike races and find out about numerous charity events in the span of 5 minutes! Definitely worth it!You can follow me and my mundane life at http://makesomerumi.blogspot.com/ My next project after the holidays is to begin documenting the historic area of downtown Valdosta. I'll send you the link when I get started if you're interested.Best,Jennifer Keene
Oh, absolutely. I don't see us heading back through your town in the near future - the next trip back from Jacksonville, I'd like to go via Waycross - but I sure did like what I saw. Colyer's Jeweler has such a great sign and I imagine that there is more. Thank you for reading!
Thanks! I've really enjoyed your blog!Oh, and I'm originally from Waycross but I've gone so long that I don't much about the food scene. Although a friend told me about an old BBQ joint that I need to try. Can't remember the name but I'll ask him and pass it along to you. May be worth a trip! :)
