Giddy up, it's SEWE weekend!

King Street is bustin' at the seams with folks in town for this weekend's Southeastern Wildlife Exposition. And may I just add that there seems to also be a proliferation of animal print clothing as well? Ponderous.

Last night at The William Aiken House, we played host to a VIP event with Darius Rucker, lead singer of Hootie and The Blowfish. Proceeds of the concert went to the Medical University of South Carolina Charles P. Darby Children’s Research Institute. The concert, at Charleston Music Hall, showcased Rucker, accompanied by a big band, performing Sinatra standards (I swear). Groovy.

Spent a few moments with a dear friend who works at Garden & Gun magazine yesterday. They are, as you might imagine, quite busy on a weekend like this, garnering new subscriptions left and right. She gave me a sneak peak of the upcoming G&G issue that has a great piece on a Chapel Hill chef who has built an array of relationships with local farmers, with very delicious results. Definitely check it out when it hits newsstands.

By the by, the yumminess that is our Valentine's Day menu is running throughout the weekend. Yes, we love you that much.
