1. Last Sunday we had lunch at Husk, the newest restaurant jewel in the crown of one of the BEST food cities in the world...Charleston. I am in awe of Chef Sean Brock and his commitment to fresh local ingredients. I do believe Husk may be our new "go to" place.
2. On the flip side...New Year's Eve EVE, we went to The Woodlands. Located in Summerville, we've been there at least 25 times over the last ten or so years...always a treat...until New Year's Eve Eve. New owner, new chef. Kudos to the chef. To the owner, DUDE, you'd better do something fast. The service was beyond awful. The female wait person was without a doubt the rudest wait person we have ever encountered...there or anywhere. I called the next day to complain. The dining room manager was apologetic and asked me to send him an e-mail because he wanted to be able to communicate with us and would be extending us an invitation to be his guests at Sunday brunch. I sent the e-mail. NO response...no invitation...
My advice to you if you're in the area...don't go to The Woodlands. I'm sad to say that we will not ever darken the door there again. Sad for The Woodlands that I'm going to tell everybody I know since the restaurant manager declined to follow through as he said he would.
3. Hank and Ned are on their way to Clemson for the basketball game against Florida State. They hopped a ride with Ned's housemate Bryant and his dad. I'm sure Ned will be exhausted as he usually gets up about 9 AM and this morning had to get up about 6 AM. It will be well worth it. Lunch at the Esso Club...ball game...ice cream (the BEST in the world) at the student center, then back toward home. I'm jealous...and I'm kicking myself for not putting a camera in Hank's hand. This will be Ned's first EVER trip to a college basketball game.
4. My Saturday...coffee and blogging for awhile this morning. I have some work to do for a class I'm taking but I just might save that for tomorrow...fiddle dee dee and all that...and go out and shop some. It's looking like it's going to be a beautiful day here in the lowcountry.
What are you up to?
