Quirky Meets Eerie

quirky meets eerieTybee has plenty of eccentric nicknames and monikers.  The one we hear the most is quirky.  Well, it’s almost time for Halloween, so when quirky meets eerie it can be very spooktacular! This weekend is a perfect example as Bo Bien Hut debuts it’s Rock & Roll Surf Zombie Shark Attack Heart Attack outdoor haunted trail.  It’s going to be another hauntingly family friendly adventure.  It runs October 22-24 and then again October 29-31, from 6-9 p.m. each night.  It’ll be an outrageous and ghastly treat that only cost $5 to enter (kids 5 and under are free!).  All proceeds will benefit our Tybee Maritime Academy, it’ll be worth quite a scare, don’t you think?

Here come goblins and ghouls hoppin’ down the Haunted Hut Trail to a surf-a-go-go theme.  If y’all remember, a hydrogen bomb was ditched in the waters off Tybee back in 1958.  Legend has it that a great white shark bit into the Tybee Bomb as if it were food, making the shark radioactive.  It’s so bombed up with radiation even swimming past it can turn you into a zombie surfer. …

2015 Tybee ICE Run

2015 Tybee ICE RunPut that top down and cruise on over to Tybee Island for the 2015 Tybee ICE Run on October 24th.  Simpler times and that small town/hometown feeling takes over as soon as you cross our bridge onto our beautiful and historic island.  Show off your ride and enjoy seeing all the other classic and vintage vehicles as we roll the clock back to when automobiles and their style ruled the road.   Island Car Enthusiasts ~ I.C.E. is a non-profit organization/custom motorsports club out of Wilmington Island GA that is open to everyone regardless of year, make or model.  If you love your ride, two wheels or four, come check them out!

This will be the ICE Car Club’s 7th Annual Charity Hot Rod Show.  Find out how to Purchase Tickets & More Information right online and get ready for some real heavy metal on display on the beach side of Hotel Tybee.  You’ll just enter through the tunnel under the hotel. This year is all about the animals as ICE is raising money for ONE LOVE ANIMAL RESCUE and THE TYBEE SEA TURTLE PROJECT. You cant find a better venue in The Southeast to show off your ride.

A Funny Thing Happened

a funny thing happened“A funny thing happened on Tybee…”  We’ve all got plenty of stories about our adventures at the beach and Tybee tends to be the perfect backdrop for all sorts of hilarity and shenanigans.  Coming soon, we’ll have our own Tybee Comedy Revue and we bet you’ll enjoy the laughter.  The curtain is up and the lights are brightly shining at Tybee Post Theater.  It’s Show Time, y’all.

Tybee Comedy Revue debuts its fantastic night of stand-up comedy starring nationally known comedian and pianist extraordinaire, Jerry Farber. Jerry lives in Atlanta and is one of the city’s most recognized and acclaimed performers, entertaining there and in comedy clubs around the country for over two decades. His style is inspired by both jazz and comedy greats, from Dave Brubeck and Errol Garner to Woody Allen and Mark Russell.

Opening for Jerry is another Atlanta comedy superstar, Kristi Leigh Snyder, a mega watt amalgam of “Carrie Bradshaw-Liz Lemon blend, with a Monica Gellar undertone; a Julia Sugarbaker bouquet on the nose, with a nice Blanche Devereaux finish.”  In other words, she’s a hoot!

We love how Tybee Post Theater has really come into its own.  Y’all know Tybee has it’s own cast of characters just walking around every day and now we have a venue to share some really extra special moments.  Why hide the good stuff.  Let’s put it all up on stage and shine some light on it!  It’s all on their website:
