Make Mine In Plastic, Please!

It’s beginning to look a lot like SPRING which means PARTY TIME on TYBEE!

Long described as a “Drinking Island With A Fishing Problem”,  the wonderful people and businesses of Tybee Island love a little sun, wonderful food, fantastic music, loads of laughter and a drink or three.

Soon, we’ll be hosting the world for our Irish Heritage Celebration, Mardi Gras, Beach Bum Weekend and just plain old everyday living!

Of course, it doesn’t hurt that our best party favor is “:The To-Go Cup”!

You’re all invited and you must partake, but always remember to toast it in a plastic cup.  We don’t allow cans or glass containers of any type, but toasting the sunset or enjoying a midnight stroll on the beach with your favorite libation in a plastic cup makes it all the sweeter.

It’s how we get Tybee-ized and now, you can too!

Travel In Style!

Ever notice that your pet always seems to like your best furniture for their pet naps?

Well, I guess we can be glad they have great taste, too!

Here’s a super idea that’s sure to pamper your pet in style and make use of something most of us just have lying around taking up closet space:  A Suitcase Doggy Bed!

When I first saw this idea it was on a DIY site, http://www.designsprout.com, but since then they’re popping up everywhere!

This is a great way to lure your pet off your furniture and into their own sanctuary.  You can custom design the interior to compliment your pet and it’s a great way to travel with their toys and food bowls.  Just pack ’em up and away you go!

If you make it yourself from an old suitcase, just be sure to fashion some way to insure it will stay open when your pet is in it.

My dogs are my best travel partners and they like to do it in style!
