Charleston Bachelorette Recap

Here is a little recap of my weekend in Charleston.
Friday we got into town around 1 pm and we immediately went to lunch at a cute little restaurant called Toast where they serve bottomless mimosas. (We frequented this spot 6 years ago when we came for Erica's bachelorette too). After lunch we had some time to kill so we walked around the straw market, stopped in a few shops, and had a drink at a place called 5Church which was so cool. It was an old church renovated into a bar/restaurant.

We headed back to the hotel to get ready for our "fancy" night out on the town. We had dinner at a restaurant called Eleve, in the Grand Bohemian hotel and it was to die for! I had a Tomato buratta salad and a scallop dish for dinner. I also tried the filet mignon and lamb chops and it was all amazing! I highly recommend this place if anyone ever visits Charleston. Best food I've had in a while hands down. After dinner, we hit up some dance bars and ended the night at a place with live music. We of course stayed up way to late talking, but that is to be expected ;)

Saturday, we had brunch at a restaurant called SNOB (Slightly north of broad) and I of course had to try out the shrimp and grits. They were really good. It ended up being a gorgeous day so we decided to go to 2 different rooftop bars the afternoon. Vendue Inn was just average, but the rooftop bar on the Pavilion hotel was gorgeous... fantastic cucumber martinis too!
 Once we arrived back at the hotel, we did a little lingerie shower for Amanda, got dressed and went to dinner at a sushi restaurant called O-Ku. Everyone was raving about how good the sushi was, but this plain Jane got chicken teriyaki and it was just average. I just can't do raw fish! We walked to a few nearby bars on King Street near the restaurant and then at the brides request went back to the same bar as the night before with live music. As much as I wanted to dance, it isn't her cup of tea so chilling listening to a band play was what we did. A few of us headed home early since we were so tired from the night before. 

It was a lovely weekend away and much needed to rejuvenate and give me some time to miss my baby girls! Thanks to the grandparents and hubby who watched the kids so I was able to have a weekend away. You all are the best!!!
