What a blast this totally awesome Southern city is. I’m so sad we can’t move here :(

We arrived at Erica + Josh’s to fine a few snacks on display, including a keg of beer!! (They have a kegerator!) I had a few fruits dipped in yogurt

After getting a tour of their beautiful home, we headed to downtown Charleston

We did a photo shoot on the battery

And then headed to Rooftop for some beerverages

To new friends!

We had a 7pm reservation at South End Brewery. We had a nice big booth and sat across from the husbands – how cute were they

They were good sports, taking lots of blog photos!


The table cloth doodling was out of control

Of course we got the beer sampler. I shared this 30%:60% with Matt (with me getting more and him getting a pitcher)

The highlight was the seasonal ginger beer!!!!!!! Like a ginger snap!

For dinner Matt and I shared a vegetable pizza with gouda cheese

And I got a side salad with summer berries

After dinner and lots of laughs (and a round of drinks / waters at a local bar), we headed to the Market Street candy shop for a praline sample!

I couldn’t resist getting one for dessert. Shared this with Tina, but I pretty much ate it all.

We’re back home playing with Frank the Tank the English bulldog and getting sleep.

There are plans to visit the ocean tomorrow!!!!!!! LOVE the beach!

Hi Kath,
I live in Boston and was running this morning in Cambridge and saw a girl who looked familiar – it was your sister and she looked familiar from the blog!
I didn’t place her until I passed them so I didn’t say Hi but I’ll introduce myself at the Summit.
Enjoy the weekend!


22 BethT July 12, 2009 at 10:48 am

Was there a reason you can’t move to Charleston? Is there already a Great Harvest there? Boo.


23 lynn (The Actors Diet) July 12, 2009 at 11:13 am

Mmmm that pizza looks great – and candy shop too!!!

Charleston is truly an amazing city. Looks like you guys had such a fun visit, and I’m totally jealous…I’m dying to meet Frank! :)

kh ,
NO WAAAAAAAAAY!!! That was totally Larbs + Matt!!



32 Katharina July 12, 2009 at 9:56 pm

How are those flattened bananas??

Looks like you had an incredible weekend. Charleston is so enchanting. And so are those sandwiches you made! That was so sweet and thoughtful of you.


33 Cait (Cait's Plate) July 13, 2009 at 8:20 am

That looks like such a fun nigth Kath!

I love the picture of the husbands with the cameras. HAHA. That cracked me up.

Loved that restaurant too – anywhere that lets you draw on the table cloth is A-OK in my book 😉
