Charleston: The Holy City!

Cal and I are in Charleston until Tuesday. Cal had an interveiw at MUSC on Saturday and we extended our vacation until Tuesday. I am taking tons of pics that I will make a slideshow of when we get back and put up on the blog. I'll give a short run-down of what we have done so far...
On Friday night, we went to 82 Queen (click on pic to read about restaurant):Then had after dinner drinks at the Library roof top bar at the Vendue Inn:
On Saturday, Cal headed off to his interview at around 7 a.m. and I relaxed, beautified and went shopping at the Market and King Street:
The Market: King Street:
We took a long nap after Cal got back from his interview, then got all dressed up and went to dinner at S.N.O.B: (click on picture to see restaurant)After dinner at S.N.O.B- we went to check out a few local bars- we went by Tommy Condons and several other places that were completely packed due to St. Patty's day...so we went back to the rooftop bar from the night before and had a great time listening to the little acoustic band there.

This morning, Sunday, we went to have Sunday Brunch at Poogan's Porch:(click on picture to read about restaurant- it was amazing!)We had a carriage come to pick us up from brunch and took us on a historical tour around Charleston. This city is amazing with so much history! We are now back in the room resting up for cocktails at the Market Pavillion Rooftop and dinner at Peninsula Grille tonight!!! We are having a blast. Charleston is known as the "Holy City" on the water.... there is a distinct reverence for Christ in this city and you can feel it wherever you go. I will post more updates soon!
