I know a guy who's been a "server" (butler?) there for years and years ... makes good money, is gay (like most of the guys who work there I think) and never, ever talks about it. It remains like a secret society to me ... A last bastion of "Old Savannah" (especially now that Lee Adler is dead and buried).

HERE'S ANOTHER QUESTION: Who still goes to Elizabeth's on 37th? I've got another friend who works for one of the finer B&Bs in town and he says they NEVER send guests there unless they just absolutely insist upon it. There's so many other good restaurants in town now, and 37th remains such a dicey area. Anybody?

I had a friend who worked there this year for just a month or so. She said most of the staff was AA (although she was white) and she said she had heard it was also just for white. In their defense its possible it has been changed and she only got old news. It wasn't something a manager or person above her told her.

Yes, At one time it was all white. So were the golf clubs, schools and the theaters. This was the segregated South...remember? The times have changed.

Yep. I figured they had changed but didn't know for sure. Being a racist in Savannah is one of the most absurd things someone could do, especially a business.

She did say that she never seen a non white there...although she didn't work there for that long.

I used to go to Elizabeth's all the time, too. I haven't been in years. The fact that it was fine dining in a somewhat casual setting (their home) was what I liked about it. I really just don't eat out much at all anymore, so it's not that I've had an unpleasant experience there, but just haven't been. If we go out at all we tend to go to more child-friendly establishments.

One time, when parking a car at an actual parking space in front of their club on Gaston, employees came out and told me I had to move my vehicle. I asked why, and they said that I just couldn't park there. Apparently, I wasn't the right kind of car. Never mind that those were city metered parking spots... Maybe they knew I was already wise to their racist heritage, and just couldn't stand me being so close.
