I still have a ton of places to go, but man this place is blowing me away so far. So many good food places and other stuff to check out. I'll keep this going throughout my stay...
Bearno's: Sure, it's a small chain, but it's so tasty. I had a tasty and surprisingly filling meatball sub while sharing some incredible breadsticks with others. If you're in the mood for pizza/pasta/other general Italian stuff, Bearno's is pretty great.
Old Town Liquors: While Savannah has a pretty sizable liquor store in the Beverage Warehouse, Old Town takes the selection at the Warehouse and beats it to a bloody pulp. So much great stuff I can't find in Savannah, most notably Monk's Cafe Flemish Sour Ale (which is about as close to Godliness as you're going to get), and some Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout. A bunch of other midwest stuff is also on my watch list.
Liquor Barn: Yeah, more beer. This place is like a thousand times bigger than Savannah's Warehouse, and also has about a thousand times the selection. More great Midwest stuff, a sprinkle of Dogfish Head, and even a bigger Unibroue selection! Also, Chmiay seems to be a lot cheaper here than in Savannah. I think Chimay bombers typically goes about $12 (red)/$14 (white)/$17 (blue), whereas every place I have gone here, they are all like $11.99! I found a bottle of Chimay Blue here on sale for $10.49, so I'm finally gonna give it a shot.
I have more actual food on my docket for this week, including a supposedly delicious breakfast place for later today, so I will update!

Really slacked on this because Louisville kept me busy and as soon as I got home I had work, etc. Anyways, some other places I saw....
Kashmir's: Online, a bunch of people hate on this place. Going in, I was nervous since I never really had any Indian food before. I tried the chicken vindaloo with a mild sauce, and it was awesome. Not spicy at all, really. My fiancee had a hot chicken tikka marsala, which was also delicious, and I used the leftover sauce with our naan we ordered, which was awesome. Great place.
Cafe Mimosa: This is hardly a damn cafe. Still trying to go to new places and try new things, I got the Chicken Szechuan, which I have never had. It was listed as spicy, but hardly was. Still, a tasty mix of chicken and green beans.
If you can't tell by now, I like chicken.
Holy Grale: Blah, another booze rec. INSANE tap variety. Tons of foreign and domestic craft beer. Can be pretty crowded, so watch out!
I think that's most of the food places I went to. Tons of places to see when I move though!
