Lowcountry coverage in Southern Living

The Lowcountry certainly got some good coverage in Southern Living. Opening up the June issue was a feature on the East Cooper area. Mt Pleasant, Sullivan’s Island and Isle of Palms’ restaurants, shops and activities from the Boulevard Diner to Wild Dunes were highlighted. Next, the magazine ran a one page story on the artsy side of Daufuskie Island across from Harbor Town on Hilton Head. It showed how the ocean has inspired the works of island craftspeople.

Southern Living pays tribute to the top five fragrances of the south

Southern Living also paid tribute to the top five fragrances of the south: Gardenia, Magnolia, Oriental Lily, Four O’Clocks and Ginger Lily. You can’t beat that list. The one pest that threatens the sanity of southern gardeners is moles. So many people are complaining that their tip of the month suggested one teaspoon of chili powder in each hole.

The moderate climate, close-by beaches, deep-sea fishing, intimate sense of history, stunning architecture, world class golf, wonderful accommodations and terrific restaurants make Charleston the top choice for your best weekend.” What a great review!

Best Weekends also hunted the Best Burger and ended up with a three- way tie. The common thread here was tender, run-down-your-fingers juicy burgers on soft rolls. And the envelope, please: Your Place, Charleston, SC; Burger Joint at the Parker Meridian Hotel in NYC and Mrs. Bartley's Cottage in Cambridge, MA.

Love is in the air!

Love is in the air! Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone. Did you know mid-February love was celebrated back as far as Roman times. While the oldest known Valentine card was sent in the 1400’s from the Tower of London, the tradition of sending cards to those we love on the 14th didn’t become popular until the 17th century. Richard Cadbury marketed the first box of chocolates in 1868 (with that name are you surprised?). And Valentine cards haven’t always been nice. Vinegar valentines carrying insulting messages became popular in the 1800’s.
