new spots to try

Charleston SC continues to be recognized as a foodie, boutique town.  With that, we are getting a ton of new delicious cuisine and quaint hotels.  Chefs, restaurateurs and hoteliers are upon our little city to put their stakes into our coastal town, and it’s tough to keep up with all the new HOT SPOT openings.

Here are a few people are talking about…

Hotels with Style

The Dewberry featuring Henrietta’s for dining

The Spectator Hotel

Grub & Cocktails

Little Jack’s Tavern & Harold’s Cabin (pic below)- two cool spots I have tried out!

Feathertop Kitchen

Have YOU been to any of these new hot spots?  I know there are many more, so WHERE is your favorite spot to sleep and eat?  I’d love to hear your opinion!

events upon events

March has flown by with so much going on in town…NYC Ballet performance at the Gaillard, Wine & Food Festival, Charleston Fashion Week (that’s currently happening).

If you are Irish or so inclined to feel Irish, then St Patty’s Day will have gatherings all over town. The usual green beer and Irish car bombs will be consumed in mass quantities. A short trip to Savannah GA will really put you in the Irish spirit with parades, tailgating and parties in the parks. 

Next up, the 13th annual Charleston Antiques Show will be held March 18-20, 2016. This event is managed by The Antiques Council. The collection includes late 17th-20th century English, European, and American period furnishings, artwork, and vintage jewelry.

So…put your lipstick on, get out and enJOY!
