Last night was a Joe Purdy night. I had my itunes going on shuffle and "Andrea" came on. After that, I was all about Joe. I absolutely love his music. It's beautiful, raspy and souful -- the quintessential rainy day music. I've been listening to him for so many years that I have many memories attached to his songs. Those are the best kind aren't they? But I digress.
Speaking of memories... the real purpose of this post was to give you a recap of my Charleston trip back at the end of April. It was all to celebrate this girl getting hitched! We found it hilarious that we passed by this shirt on our way to dinner the first night.
We started out our adventure by heading to Taco Boy in Folly Beach. Here we are in the lobby before heading out to dinner. The atmosphere at Taco Boy was great, and the food was quite tasty too!
The next day, we relaxed on the beach, which proved to be a great spot for people watching. Let's just say there was a man in a hot pink speedo who would dance around the whole beach to a boombox on his shoulder that blared "Party Rock Anthem" by LMFAO over and over. I don't think any of us want to hear that song ever again. Ever. After beach time, we got ready and headed into downtown to have dinner at Pearlz. Another yummy place--good thing too since we sure had a wait! Here we are outside of Pearlz with our Bachelorette garb in tow.
The next day was another beach day, but we headed to lunch first. Rita's was just a walk away and since burgers and brunch were on the menu, we were happy campers. I got the Pedro Cheeseburger with jalapenos...so yummy. Other interesting eats were the Captain Crunch French Toast--Bekah swears it was delicious, and the Pimento Cheeseburger. We all left full and happy!
Our last night out we all rode together into town. In the words of Jessica, "we decided to take a party bus with one random black light...that's how we ride." Haha.
That night we had drinks at The Cocktail Club, a very cool and laid back bar with dim lighting and exposed brick walls. It reminded me of a Restoration Hardware ad if that gives you any indication. For dinner, we went to O-Ku. Another place with great food and a great atmosphere. This girl is all about the atmosphere.
After dinner we headed out to The Rooftop Bar at The Vendue Inn where we enjoyed views of downtown like this...
Here's half the gang on The Rooftop.
We had a wonderful weekend filled with lots of laughs and memories! Charleston was great, and there was so much to see, I think I'll have to make another trip!
