My roommate (Leah), her boyfriend (Zack), and I went to Charleston this past weekend to visit a college friend of ours (Amanda, also known as Afed). And to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day 2012! We had so much fun!
Saturday morning we woke up and headed straight to Folly Beach, where we immediately got in the St. Patty’s Day spirit seeing all the green attire. We were all starving so we literally waited oustide Taco Boy until they opened. Started off the morning right with a margarita followed by two of the most delicious tacos I’ve ever had! I had a grilled Mahi-Mahi taco and their Obrero, which was black bean and spicy amazingness.
We hung out at the beach all day before heading back to Amanda’s and shower. After a small freak out that we had lost Afed’s phone (thankfully, we did not!), we drove to downtown Charleston to meet Leah and Zack for dinner at Bubba Gump Shrimp Company. Time got away from us, and it was almost 9:30 before we sat down to order. We were ravenous! We ordered Seafood Hush Pups and the Shrimp Shack Mac and Cheese to start, and I got the Bourbon Street Mahi Mahi. There was no talking at our table for a good 5 min. while we scarfed it down. Delicious!
Then we sampled a bit of Miami before meeting up with some of Zach’s friends at a bar downtown. Good end to a great day!
Sunday morning, I woke up and headed to the beach with Cedar while everyone else was still asleep. Gosh, I wish I could sleep past 8:00 a.m.! But this was worth it.
