Editor's Note: Green on Greene 

Welcome to our St. Patrick's Day special issue, in which we try and impart both the practical nuts and bolts of Savannah's legendary holiday as well as give locals and tourists alike a certain nuanced look into the, uh, flavor of the celebration.

We always strive to have a unique look on the cover for this issue every year, to differentiate us from all the other publications around town and their various takes on lucky leprechauns, pots o’ gold, etc., as well as to just have some fun in the true Savannah spirit of St. Patrick’s Day.

I’m not sure if Marilyn Monroe was Irish, or if she ever came anywhere near Savannah. But this year photographer Geoff L. Johnson brings us his homage to the iconic “Ballerina” shot of Marilyn, taken exactly 60 years ago by Milton H. Greene.

Our cover model this year is local actress, makeup artist, costume designer, and all-around great gal Corinna Rezzelle. (You might remember Corinna from Bill DeYoung’s fun profile of her in a recent issue.)

Anyway, I’m 100 percent positive Corinna makes a better cover subject than some generic Lucky Charms-type clip art, and I’m also pretty sure you’ll agree.

    One recent headline is about the City of Savannah's estimated $10 million surplus. Ordinarily, that announcement might be a great headline for a City leader to see in the morning over coffee. But in Savannah's current political climate the surplus was seen by most people, fairly or unfairly, as further proof of the City's financial mismanagement.

  • Editor's Note: A Tale of Two Windows

    Just a few minutes after lecturing a local small business owner about his store windows, City Council took the complete opposite attitude in appearing to bend over backwards to benefit a large developer.

  • Editor's Note: The Woo Girls and you

    In modern tourism, it's not so much about the place, but about 'the experience.' Weaponizing Instagram, Uber, and Airbnb, the bachelorette party industry represents a potent economic force which just happens to fit almost seamlessly into the marketing plans of Chambers of Commerce around the country and the deep-pockets developers they cater to.
