Charleston The Food Town
Did I mention that Charleston is all things food? Turns out the annual Taste of Charleston Food Festival was going on. Thank you to my good friend Kimberly for seeing this in Southern Living Mag and alerting me right before we flew out.
We went the second day (Sunday). It was threatening serious rain but we lucked out with only a few showers.
It's a fundraiser for local charities. All the area restaurants have booths and you use tickets to buy small plates/tastes. Eat, drink and be merry for charity? Hell yes, we are on-board for that!
Besides the food, there was live music, ice carving, food demos, a few product demos, an iron chef competition, and a waiter obstacle course competition.
Jeremy - our bartender at Anson's on Friday night had given us a heads up on this one and introduced us to their waiter that was competing.
It was an absolute hoot to watch.
We waddled out stuffed and happy that we could help.... cause it's all about the kids you know. HA!
