Savannah 12: Leopold's

This is actually an icecream shop. Founded almost a century ago, it built a reputation on excellent banana splits, milk shakes and malts. Johnny Mercer was a regular customer here. At some point, the owners decided to close down in order to concentrate on a film career. It reopened in 2004, with much of the original fixtures. Due to this Hollywood connection, there is a lot of memorabilia on display.

Ice cream and memorabilia always seem to go hand in hand, Ayush. smile We plan to visit Savannah in October. We'll have to check this place out.
Ayush Basu: And perhaps you both will have your own shots to post as well? smile
