Despite chilly weather and a busy social calendar for the Hostess City, this past Thursday’s second Slideluck Savannah was the event of the season.

Over 200 Savannahians showed up at the American Legion Post 135 for one of the most impressive potlucks we’ve seen. Huge hams met delicate quinoa salads, while Southern specialties like collard greens graced the table right next to a bounty of desserts – homemade cakes, pies, cookies and more.
Missionary Blues got us in the mood with some bumping tunes and Brooklyn Brewery was keeping us happy and hydrated all night. Tom Kohler delivered a beautiful blessing and we all gave thanks for life before hitting the potluck. Everyone enjoyed a hearty meal and made new friends at their tables while drawing on the tablecloths. And then it was time for the art.
This year’s show, curated by the Slideluck Savannah team, demonstrated some of creative Savannah’s best, including some exquisite paintings and illustrations and even some radical typography. One lucky artist, Christine Sajecki, was randomly selected to receive a one year subscription to Viewbook. Congrats, Christine!
Despite some minor technical difficulties, the evening ended in high spirits and low stocks of beer (y’all were thirsty!) This incredible evening wouldn’t have been possible without our amazing volunteers and our sponsors: Blick, Kaufman & Heinz, Socially Yours, Orange PR & Marketing,Paprika Southern, You’re Welcome Savannah, WellFED, ArtRiseJudge Realty, Offset, Sandbox Studio.
Thank you for the good times, Savannah! We can’t wait to see what’s in store for the next Slideluck.
