Spyhop’s “Tacos & Coffee” received Convene Magazine’s BEST IN SHOW Destination Video honors. Watch the video.
From Convene: “What are three things you don’t necessarily think of together? Okay, probably lots of combinations — but “tacos, coffee, and Savannah” is particularly out there. Which is what makes Visit Savannah’s video so much fun. Part of #TrendingSavannah, a series of culinary-themed videos, “Tacos & Coffee” profiles Foxy Loxy Café, which serves … well, take a guess. “First, we wanted to expand people’s knowledge about our culinary experiences,” said Jeremy Harvey, vice president of communications and marketing for Visit Savannah. “We’re well known for our awesome Southern and coastal (seafood) cuisine, so this video gave us a chance to highlight some creative offerings outside of those more well-known options. Second, we were hoping to expand the experience of a Savannah visit to outside the traditional ‘historic district’ boundary. Foxy Loxy Café is in an area south of our historic district’s southern border of Forsyth Park, in an area called the Starland District, and we want visitors to extend their visit by going off the beaten path a bit. Third, we are looking to attract Millennials and other younger demographic visitors, so this video focusing on those regulars [at Foxy Loxy] and coffee/tacos worked well to tell the story of where locals who fit that demographic like to hang.”
