South Magazine - Feb-March 2016

A Decade of Dining

There’s no question what we eat has changed dramatically in the last 10 years. Namely, much of the national focus has shifted to farm-to-table and eating local. The mere existence of farmer’s markets and local dives is a major indicator…

Stars of the South

Up until 2011, “Stars of the South” was a regular feature in every issue of South magazine. The Hostess City has a remarkable ability to produce rabble-rousers and up-and-coming leaders in their field. We wanted to showcase the people whose…

Ten Years Of Style

When we started South magazine, we wanted to push the limits of creativity in a town where creativity reigns supreme. The genteel South is known for its prim and proper attitude, but in the microcosm of Savannah, there are no…

Ten Years

Ten years in the making. It was a long, long, long time coming–times ten. Here we are. Number 10. When we launched in 2006 did you think we’d make it this far? Many of our loudest naysayers out there certainly didn’t.…

Magic number nine

Magic number nine. No coincidence we had to pull a few rabbits out. Our ninth year in publication brought a revolution to both South magazine and Southern culture. In 2014 it seemed the rest of the country began to wake…

Did you know the lucky number in China is eight

Well here at South, we like to think our lucky number is 13. It seems as if 2013 was the year we finally “made it,” as they say in showbiz. And that wasn’t our only showbiz reference in 2013. Our…

Our appetite for success is growing

Our sixth anniversary of South magazine was a milestone in and of itself, considering the economic downturn the rest of the world had been facing in previous years. South magazine was as resilient as the people it served, and thrived…

South Six Years

As you might remember, our Feb/Mar 2011 issue marked our five year anniversary. To commemorate such a marvelous occasion, we published our first “Faces of the South,” issue, which took the time to honor the faces behind the businesses that…

Five years brought many milestones

At the beginning of 2010 we reached many milestones: over half a million magazines had been distributed since the launch, over 10,000 people were visiting our website every month, and our readership was up to 20,000 for each issue. The…

Year four and were still going strong.

There is no better feeling than seeing something you’ve created evolve and grow into something bigger and more effective every year. In 2009, we were facing a whole different world than when we started three years prior. The economy had…

The third times a charm.

South’s third year in publication brought exciting new opportunities for the magazine. In 2008 we had the pleasure of working with legends, up-and-comers, and amazing talents who helped us grow as a magazine and solidified our place in the hearts…

South Year Two

With one fulfilling year under our belt, we dove into 2007 ready for a chance to solidify ourselves as the premier publication of the new South. Although we were slowly making a name for ourselves, 2007 was the year interesting…

2006 South Launches

When we set out to start a magazine, it was with the blood, sweat and tears of a hungry and passionate team. We are happy to say that the passion we felt with that first issue has only grown throughout…

35 Greatest Covers

In a time where it seems as though printed media is slowly but surely becoming obsolete, we still think magazines hold a special place in the social milieu of everyday life. Years from now, when we are looking through the…

Here's Sonny

WTOC’s lead anchor for 18 years; Emmy award-winner; five-term congressman in the Georgia House of Representatives; board member of the United Way, Rape Crisis Center,  Boy Scouts, and more. He’s got more kudos than you can shake a stick at. …

Gone But Not Forgotten

If you have ever been to the South magazine office, you know that from Bull Street, it appears to be just a door. A slim frame, snug between the cute primary colors of the Soda Pop Shop and the minimalistic…

MommaYo

Lifelong philanthropist Lois Wooten, a gleaming gem on Savannah’s crown, would like to apologize to any organization she’s involved in that is not mentioned here. The society queen simply has too many to name in this finite space. Her heart,…

Special 10th Anniversary Edition

X marks the spot. Over the last 10 years, South magazine has become the spot to see, be seen, shock and awe in Savannah and the Creative Coast. From our small offices on Bull Street, we’ve discovered some of the…
