If you see a tricked out 1971 VW bus don’t be confused, The Dead isn’t in town…it’s the newest addition to the Savannah Food “Bus” scene, Charscooterie.
Charscooterie is the brainchild of restaurateur David Eduardo and photographer Caitlin Webb. They met at Huc-A-Poos in March 2019 and became fast friends. After a lot of thought and consideration they felt passionate about the concept of basically pairing sophisticated Lunchables with great craft beer. “It sounded like a blast, and in the Covid-era it somehow feels even more right, being able to bring a unique experience to people, in a fun and responsible and weird way,” says partner David Eduardo. They also brought local chef Jordan Peagler aboard the bus, “she brings tons of experience and energy.”
The VW bus, lovingly named “Scoot,” is being outfitted for service at Custom Concepts Design & Fabrication here in Savannah. It will be making appearances in Savannah and Athens after Labor Day. You will spot the bus popping up around town at museums, breweries and bars on occasion but for the most part the bus and team will be available for hire to cater special events like company picnics, block parties, game-day tailgates, weddings, film locations and the like. Be sure to follow them on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram to get the latest news or book the bus for your event.
Once you’ve tracked down Scoot you can expect, “a wide assortment of gorgeous and delicious grazing boards utilizing locally sourced ingredients as often as possible,” says David. “The boards will feature great cured meats, cheeses, pickled vegetables, dried & fresh fruits, nuts and jams, with a dash of whimsy.” Scoot will also offer ice cold craft draft beer brewed in Georgia out of four taps, as well as, local cold brew coffee, kombucha, award winning wines, organic juices and artisanal sodas. Oh and don’t forget to grab a chocolate chip cookie.
In the end, cheese is really all you need. We welcome Charscooterie to Savannah with open arms.
