  1. You should definitely plan a trip to Charleston. My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary there. It's beautiful city with, as I'm sure you know, a remarkable number of excellent restaurants. Definitely go to McCrady's and also to the original Husk to try the smoked bacon cornbread, definitely one of the best things I've ever eaten.

  2. thanks for the comment and tips on charleston...the city is definitely on my list of future destinations.
