An interstate battle for the best ball drop is raging in Georgia. Besides the peach drop and the possum drop, the historic town of Savannah also has its own quirky drop. Well, it’s actually the opposite of a drop. At the stroke of midnight, a six-foot-tall steel and plastic cup is raised above the waterfront. The shape is in reference to Savannah’s to-go cup custom. The town has an open container policy and many bars and restaurants encourage patrons to take a drink for the road, whether it’s a sweet tea or something stronger.
