No surprise here

Hey! It’s my 100th post! To celebrate I’ve prepared something extra special for all my readers…or you know, the exact opposite of that.

My Charleston Tour continued with (surprise, surprise) two food-related activities. If you don’t know me, you must think I’m a 300 pound lard-o who eats nonstop..

Cupcake – This is a little bakery on King Street (right next to Juanita Greenberg’s, which I mentioned in my last post) that specializes in cupcakes (who what have thought?). Actually, all the make is cupcakes. They have a few flavors that are there everyday and then they have a rotating special selection as well. The also do special orders.

The cupcakes were good, but I’m not huge into sugary foods, so the massive amount of frosting was a bit much for me. It’s a neat little place though and I’m sure I will visit it again at some point.

Poe’s Tavern – I have been dieing to visit this restaurant out on Sullivan’s Island. It’s named after Edgar Allan Poe, who was stationed at nearby Fort Moultrie from 1827-1828. The food on the menu features names related to Poe’s work and the restaurant has tons of Poe-related materials scattered on the walls.

About a month ago I started reading “The Complete Works of Edgar Allan Poe,” so I was getting even more excited to check this place out.

And of course, it fell well short of expectations. There was nothing all that interesting in regards to Poe. I thought there would be some historical items, but it was mostly just paintings of Poe or movie posters.

The food is pretty good though. Burgers were slightly dry, but had some interesting toppings you could add – crabcake, chili, etc.

Not a failure by any means, but a slight disappointment.

Housekeeping

1. I’m so happy football is back. I can’t describe the joy I had watching the Giants game yesterday. I missed it.

2. Looks like I’ll be heading up to Columbia this Saturday to see the Gamecocks play! I can’t wait for tailgating and live football!!

3. Possible trip to Charlotte in early October to visit the All-American and see Blink-182 and Fall Out Boy

4. Looks like I’ll be back in New England in late October with stops at Giants Stadium and Rentschler Field!
