That means we go downtown, check out some art, eat some cheese, drink some wine and play.
It was a gorgeous evening – cold enough for a winter jacket but warm enough to ditch the gloves.
I met up with Hillary and Matt [who walked from the bakery] and we went to our favorite gallery – Second Street – to find a new watercolor exhibit.
My favorite piece was this one [photograph permission granted]. The artist used masks on many of the pieces and the detail was almost photo-like.
Second Street always has amazing nibbles
We filled up on pimento cheese and veggies, and this incredible lemon goat cheese dip from Greenwood Grocery. Must replicate!
Plus some popcorn and cheese straws!
Our next stop was to The Garage, which is literally a tiny garage in the middle of downtown that opens up for art and music.
We gazed at glittering photographs
Sipped some vino
And nibbled grapes!
Hillary had never been to Positively 4th Street (informally known in our family as P4th now) so we took her there for the ambiance and local food
In the spirit of my crabcakes from Duners, I ordered the Crabcake Sandwich. Sadly, there was little lump meat between the buns – only the stringy stuff. Hope it wasn’t the lungs!! (And if you’ve had fresh crabs, you know what I mean!) The second half tasted better without the bun. Asparagus on the side was delicious! Does that mean it’s springtime?
I also spied Matt’s French fries and traded him an asparagus spear or two for a couple. Fair trade indeed!
Appetizers and dinner left me pretty full, but I wanted something sweet and ended up with a tiny little Bambino cone from Splendora’s full of Hazelnut. The PERFECT size for a tiny bit of sweet after dinner!
And I’ll end with this photo that Matt took that I found neat. I love how the focus is on the middle of the wallet.
