First night on the rooftop at the Grill 225 Pavilion Bar….I captured the Ravenel Bridge.

Then on to Social for a night cap!

The next day, I hit the town and visited the Charleston City Market (so many good finds and a must to go to!)

I then had a wine tasting at the local Charleston Winery and stopped in to IBU to meet Landon Clements of Bravo TV’s Southern Charm! She was the upmost Southern Belle and she introduced me to her friend Mignonne Gavigan’s Jewelry Line! I snagged this Army Green Bracelet from the collection.

Next it was on to lunch at Husk…voted the #1 restaurant in Charleston in 2014! Highly recommend the pimento cheese crostinis. A staple in Charleston.

Husk Charleston...there is another location in Nashville too!

Then it was on to see the United States Custom House.

Quick snacks at Ohara & Flynn (so quaint like being in Italy!) for cheese and wine then to the Palace Hotel for boiled peanuts and Dave Ashleys (Stigler Radler Grapefruit Beer with Tito’s Vodka…delicious!).

Last up the Charleston Ghost Tour and dinner at FIG!

Still with me?

Last day in Charleston, we checked out Prohibition for a bacon bloody mary and brunch at Poogan’s Porch, my favorite restaurant of the trip! Try the fried green tomatoes and the pimento cheese sandwich!

One last caveat of the trip, my flight was cancelled due to weather in Dallas, so I stayed an extra day which was mostly spent at the airport!

That's Life!

Thanks to these ladies for the utmost fun trip!

Cheers!
