Ya'll Stop By And Sit A Spell

Ya'll Stop By And Sit A Spell

This weekend I made a stop in Old Downtown Byron, Georgia. Who ever said Byron was a sleepy little town was wrong...Check out this very cool Deli..right in the heart of downtown. 

Sara Jo McLean, (Warner Robins, Georgia) owns this deli, they opened their doors in December 2010.  Speaking with Sara's daughter, I've come to find out that she was a former military wife like myself. It seems that giving half the chance we can take a little bit from everywhere we've been and then bring it back home to make something special like the "Drugstore Deli". 

Sara has stayed true to the name as well.  She tried out another name in the beginning but everyone kept calling it the drugstore deli. It's kinda hard to change anybody's mind here in the South. Especially when we associate it with directions and certain childhood memories. So the next time you're in middle Georgia or want a change of scenery, go have lunch in Byron at the Drugstore Deli.

BBQ: You Nominated, Now Let's Vote!

Save a Cup for Earth Day, Get Free Coffee

Conserve. Get free coffee.

In honor of Earth Day today, you can bring your travel mug to Starbuck's and get a free cup of coffee.

On any day though, you can bring your travel mug or tumbler to Starbuck's and receive 10 cents off your purchase, or you can order your drink "for here" and drink out of a non-paper cup.

Starbuck's Earth Day article says that 1.2 million people participated last year. That's a lot of saved paper cups! And that's just one day.

What if we used our travel mugs every day?
