charleston {trip}

The hubs and I took a short trip to Charleston last weekend to visit a friend. Oh, how I love that city. I actually did my first semester of college at CofC so I'm easily comfortable there. And the food, the food has to be the best of any city in the South. Fried Green Tomatoes every meal - just the way I like it.

Friday night we went to Toast. fgt (of course!), catfish with fried shrimp, red rice, and collards. And a delicious Mai Tai.

Saturday morning we went down to Folly Beach to the Lost Dog Cafe. Best breakfast ever. Really great atmosphere and the weather was beautiful so we were able to sit outside in their little courtyard area.

Saturday afternoon we toured around the town and went to see the Angel Tree. Gorgeous and majestic.

We went to the Market (a must in charleston!) and then headed over the river to an Oyster Roast, complete with a band, lots of beer, sand, and a fire pit to roast marshmallows.

Then we headed back downtown for a comedy show by The Have Nots! Hilarious!

Sunday morning we met up with the hubby's step-brother & wife and went to Fleet Landing for Brunch.

I had a yummy Fried Green Tomato BLT and mimosa's. Perfect start to a Sunday! The boys took off sailing and I headed to King Street for shopping. (of course!) Had a great time:)

That's a terrible picture of my college dorm. Two blocks from King Street, one block from Starbucks.

In the afternoon, we headed to Gene's in West Ashley for appetizers, beers, football, and games. I beat all the boys in Yahtzee!

We topped off a fabulous weekend and a most fabulous restaurant, Poogan's Porch. I had Fried Green Tomatoes (the best I've ever had, ever) and Shrimp and Grits. We all shared though and y'all the fried chicken was seriously the best I've ever had. You. must. go. if you're in Charleston!
