Parked on a high ledge next to a bust of Ronald Reagan wearing a party hat, a miniature DeLorean patrols The Wormhole, a sit-down coffee shop that doles out caffeine and pop-culture kitsch in equal doses. For children of the 1980s, the cafe delivers a "wormhole" experience, surrounding them in emblems of an era: Nintendo games (available for play), ET collectibles, plush gremlins, and Star Wars doodads. The menu also smacks of the 80s, although it frequently changes to accommodate seasonal tastes. In recent times, baristas have fused espresso with cocoa puffs, and dished out donuts encrusted with Fruity Pebbles. Select beverages come with a Nilla wafer-chaser. As for edibles, Fritz Pastries supplies homemade tarts (a gourmet variation of the kind that come in silver foil) and other handheld treats.

First opening its doors in 1818, the Savannah Theatre hosts a plethora of productions upon its well-seasoned stage. June's shows include Country Star Revue, a two-hour mosey through the past half-century of country-music hits. The festive performance features the twangy tunes of Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, Rascal Flatts, and Taylor Swift, belted out by a septet of denim-clad vocalists accompanied by a live band and a chorus of tap-dancing cowboy hats. Alternatively, audiences may take a tuneful trip in the wayback machine with The Beat Goes On. From the Age of Aquarius through the age of acid-washed jeans, this musical visits the memorable melodies from the '60s, '70s, '80s, and a few spots outside the space-time continuum. Check the schedule for performance dates and times.

Grammy-winning slide-guitarist Derek Trucks and Grammy-nominated singer/guitarist Susan Tedeschi bring their music-filled marriage to the stage with the help of a handpicked 11-member band steeped in Delta blues and drenched in Memphis soul. Trucks and Tedeschi met while playing with the Allman Brothers Band and bring years of independent performance and songwriting experience to their new collaboration. Opening for them will be the legendary John Hammond, inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2011 despite the controversy over his sustain pedal's steroid habit. Tickets are in the highlighted section and are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

A hush falls over the pews and all heads turn to see the bride step into the light as she glides down the aisle. The groom's face breaks into a huge grin, and guests can't help but smile themselves. For an instant, everyone in the room forgets that this couple is already married, and that no one in the room knows who they are. But, everyone agrees that the ceremony is beautiful. This is The Big Fake Wedding, a mock wedding in which on-trend wedding vendors display their talents to entice those planning their big day. Brides- and grooms-to-be are treated to an entire faux wedding, complete with ceremony, dinner, and dance reception. They spend dinner jotting down the names of the bakers who created the delectable wedding cake, the chefs who sizzled up the artfully plated meals, and the rental centers that provided the elegant table settings. Guests can also glean ideas for modern and hip decorations and wedding-planning advice, including tactful ways to tell their fianc?e's father to retire his ruffled periwinkle tuxedo.

Part of the Savannah Dance Festival, Caliente showcases the seasoned rug cutters of Academy Ballroom International. Sambas, cha-chas, rumbas, and tangos raise the room temperature with sultry moves, quickening pulses and allowing haberdashers to easily reclaim stolen merchandise from melted snowmen. Colorful costumes further engage rapt eyes in onstage action with bright sequins and swirling folds. The show takes place at the cheery, greenery-filled Savannah Riverfront Marriott, with onsite restaurants and bars for a preshow or postshow drink to lubricate throats left dry from program-eating contests.
