This past weekend I traveled up…

Watershed on Peachtree: Refreshingly Different

Having the opportunity to spend a few days in Atlanta is refreshing. Not the typical descriptor for a city famous for it's unbearable heat and gridlock traffic, but it was. Since my wife and I moved from there to Charlotte, we really haven't had the chance to get back as much as we'd like, so it was great returning to the city we once called home; experiencing nostalgia and seeing all of the newness that's come about since we…

Sticky Bun Sunday

Like most people, I am a big fan of long, lazy, mimosa-filled brunches on the weekend.  I often have a hard time deciding between all the great options we have here in Charleston.  A few of my favorites are The Fat Hen, The Marina Variety Store, and the Farmer's Market.  But on Sunday mornings,…

“How about some iced tea? It's the house wine of the South” – Truvy in Steel Magnolias

 I was weaned on sweet tea. My Mama tells the story of how I, just a wee thing on a hot summer day in our hot car, asked, “Does you have any tea in your pocketbook?” She would make pitchers of the amber liquid to keep in our motel rooms when we traveled, because it was all that I would drink.

Damn! Toups' Meatery Impresses in New Orleans.

You know you're at a uniquely fantastic restaurant when you are requested to take a shot of Irish whiskey using a sawed in half bone out of which you just consumed the marrow. It turns out, the marrow bone works quite well as a whiskey luge and the flavors picked up from the remains of roasted goodness enrich the water of life quite well. Michele took a shot too as we dined at Toups' Meatery, a…

My 5 Favorite Fabric Lines!

If you want to stop an interior designer in their tracks, ask them what their favorite fabric lines are. Although the textile industry competition is getting fiercer and fiercer, most people in the design business have their favorites.
