New York has the Ball Drop. Atlanta has the Peach Drop. Now, Savannah is starting its own tradition to ring in the new year. It involves a giant replica of a plastic cup. The cup celebrates a Savannah tradition: being able to drink on the streets year-round. The six-foot-tall steel and plastic cup replicates those taken "to go" from bars.
Big changes are coming to Savannah’s River Street, the waterfront heart of the city's tourism empire. Over the next few years, the street is expected to get two-new hotels and a first-ever restaurant on the actual river-bank. But that's just the beginning.
