Can You Smell That?

     Ever wonder why your dog can magically tell when you enter the kitchen and get out the food? Well, according to, dogs can smell, oh, only about 1000 times better than us! They say that dogs have over 220 million smell-detecting cells in their noses while we humans have a mere 5 million.
     So, next time you think you’re being slick by sneaking a snack…don’t be surprised when your dog catches you!

Live Like a Local: Pirates on Tybee Island!

     It’s finally here…Pirate Fest! The island has been taken over and the swashbuckling fun has begun! There are so many events going on this weekend, it’ll make your head spin. All the fun starts tonight when the gates open at 5 pm. There will be a Thieves Market, Little Matey’s Cove (for the kiddies), and awesome live music! The festival fun lasts through the weekend, so get down here and join us! Here’s a map of the festival too, so you are sure to know where all the fun can be found!

     Now, downtown isn’t the only place you can find pirates! The Eagles Nest GoGo Girls are pleased to announce the “Pirate Girl Booty Drive”! This Saturday, October 9 th, some of Tybee’s finest Pirate Girls will take over the intersection of HWY 80 and Campbell. They will be asking locals and visitors alike to fill their boots with booty to benefit the Historic Tybee Post Theater! Special thanks go out to the City of Tybee and the Tybee Police and Fire Departments for this event!

     What are you waiting for?! You don’t want to miss a single minute of all this fun! Get your costume on and get to to Tybee, Mates! It’s a swashbuckling good time!
