Join us for a special weekend in Charleston, from Friday evening, December 3rd, to Sunday evening, December 5th. First, we will stop in Columbia on our drive there for the monthly seafood buffet at the Capitol City Club ($33 plus tax and gratuity). Just the king crab legs alone (already cracked open for us) make this all you can eat buffet a tasty feast! There will be other items on the buffet besides seafood, such as a salad bar and carving station. Dress code is business casual, which you will have to be wearing when you arrive at my house for the car pool.
Once we arrive on the boat, we will settle in for the night. The next day, we will be able to have a nice lunch and explore Charleston while we wait for the tree lighting at Marion Square. Then we will head back to the boat in the Charleston Harbor, where we will watch the Parade of Boats at 5:30. Thousands of spectators view the parade along the route from Mt. Pleasant to Charleston each year. The mid-point of the parade features a spectacular fireworks display shot from the harbor. There is a restaurant at the Charleston Harbor Resort where we can have drinks and food after the parade, or we can head into town or to Shem Creek.
Sunday at 1:00 will be the Charleston Wine + Food Festival event called Wine Under the Oaks - at Boone Hall Plantation. This casual and elegant affair welcomes visitors from all over to sample a portfolio of select wines and delicious gourmet foods from featured Lowcountry chefs. Guests can enjoy live music and holiday shopping which includes area culinary themed crafts and wine from Boone Hall Farms, and view the winning poster design of the 2011 BB&T Charleston Wine + Food Festival? poster competition. A portion of the proceeds benefits The American Red Cross.
After this event is over at 5:00, we will head back to Greer. As soon as tickets for this event are sold out, I will close R.S.V.P.s for this weekend in Charleston (your ticket for this event is included in the Meetup price, along with any service charges). Meals are not included. Our captain and/or my husband may be on the boat at times when we are there. Let me know if you have any questions. I hope you can join us for a fun and festive weekend!
