Charleston Date Night: A Little Woodsy

One of my favorite things about anniversaries is the corresponding theme that comes along with each year.  This year marks our fifth "wooden" anniversary, so Harold's Cabin is obviously the perfect place for a very woodsy date night!  You and your guy with both be pleased with the hearty menu that has a little something for everyone.

Woodsy Food/Drinks:

My favorite drink since this place first opened has been the Salty Racoon.  I have tried to recreate the way they smoke the rosemary for this awesome beverage, but I will just have to leave the fancy cocktail creating to them.  The Salty Racoon is definitely a great way to get your palate ready for some earthy ingredients in crowd pleasers like the forage board, beet dish, and latkes ("Harold & Lillian") we had.  The gorgeous presentation on large wooden boards makes it fun to order a few options and rotate the platters around until you have had a little of everything.  You might not want to share the best carrot cake of your life though; it's grilled so the outside is crunchy while the rest of it is still super moist.  I may have learned a lot in 5 years of marriage, but sharing good eats is still a challenge!

Gifts for Your Guy:

Even if you're not specifically needing wooden themed gifts, I think some of my finds make great gifts for men any time of year.  Sideshow Press happened to have a lot of great rustic finds right now, like the Old Fashioned Love wooden postcard that I plan to frame, as well as these Bottoms Up coasters. Those are such a cool find that won't wilt like paper coasters.  I was able to go all out with wrapping too, thanks to The Blue Root's gift wrapping services. Sideshow had some really neat wood tape & wooden gift tags (hand lettered by The Town Serif) I wanted to incorporate, but I could have never made my wrapping look this good!  The Blue Root is going to be doing holiday gift wrap with Charleston pick-up and delivery so I will be calling them again this winter! 

Marriage can be so much fun but also challenging!  I'm excited to celebrate this occasion with my hubs, and am working on starting out the next five years with more smooching and more unplugging together during the week.  Tag me if you wind up at Harold's Cabin for your own #CharlestonDateNight!  You can also check out photographer Libby William's blog, Plate South, for more Harold's goodness coming soon. Cheers, y'all!

A Weekend in Charleston: The Westside

A few posts ago I mentioned the little gem that is Allan Park, one of my favorite parts of the Westside neighborhood.  It's south of Hampton Park and just steps away from a great new restaurant where you won't struggle to find parking, Harold's Cabin. If you haven't been yet, what are you waiting for?!  Not only do they have great food and beverages all day long, but the ambiance just can't be beat.  Maybe it's the decor or the awesome staff (like our friend Drew who manages the bar), but something about Harold's just feels really cozy and inviting!

Harold's is the perfect spot to meet the gals for some great coffee, have a quiet lunch with a colleague, or enjoy a delicious date night. Treat yourself to the Salty Raccoon cocktail and the forage board that the whole town is raving about!  I guarantee you will get "Cabin Fever" after your first visit!

A Weekend in Charleston: The Cabin & The Carts!

.... golf carts and ice cream carts, that is.  I'd say both are pretty magical parts of Charleston living in the summertime!  Some lovely ladies I know- Kelly of Paper Meets Pearl & Escapada's designer, Lauren Miller- hopped on a golf cart with me to check out a gorgeous part of Charleston I bet you may not have been to unless you live above the Crosstown.  Just south of Hampton Park is one of my favorite little spots to walk my dog or sit on a park bench, Allan Park.  We took in the scenery there and also chowed down on some awesome ice cream from Scoops Wheely Good Ice Cream.  Also in that area (known as Hampton Park Terrace) is one of my new favorite spots, Harold's Cabin.  Their bar manager, Drew, is a neighborhood pal who took us for a golf cart spin and let us in Harold's for some java and a peek at their cozy upstairs.  Lauren's talented fiance, Clifford Pate, was there to snap some pix of the whole thing. Check him out on Instagram because his photos are great, and also because you never know when he might do something wild like propose on the runway of Charleston fashion week!

The Wheely Good Ice Cream cart sucked me right in with their cute striped umbrella, and I'll definitely visit them again for their tasty ice cream sandwiches and scoops.  You can also rent the Scoops cart out for events. How fun would that be for a kid's (or big kid's) birthday or rehearsal dinner!?

At "the Cabin", I can't get enough of the Cabin Cold Brew coffee or the Salty Raccoon tequila cocktail!  I haven't made my way through much of the menu yet, but what I have had is just delish.  Plus, it's worth a visit for the ambiance and decor alone.  

Well that was fun!  Follow me on Instagram to see more details on our fun Escapada clothing, accessories from Be The Change Boutique, and general golf cart shenanigans.  Also be sure to visit Harold's Cabin, open Weds-Sunday.  Tell them Liz Martin sent you for a free....smile. Or maybe a hug. You never know.  You can also try some Scoops Ice Cream on July 17 at the grand opening for Ghost Monkey Brewery on Long Point Road in Mount Pleasant.  It just happens to be NATIONAL ICE CREAM DAY! Cheers to that!
