Friends. Food. Drinks. Music. Springtime.
All of those things combined made for one awesome night.
A Charleston Affair, as I previously briefly mentioned, is a giant cocktail (?) party with College of Charleston alumni and graduating seniors. Anticipation for Saturday’s party had been building among our friends for weeks.
I was really excited about my hair. Sorry for bragging. But besides the few hairs of mine that always refuse to stay up, it was the most perfect bun. Wanna know a secret? There’s a SOCK in my hair! Have you ever heard of the sock bun? It’s my new fave.
One of us was trying to focus on driving while the other was sticking a phone his face for pictures on our way downtown. Don’t let that face fool you though. He had a great time too.
Maybe I should talk about the food for a second? Well, overall it was disappointing. Definitely not Charleston’s A-game. Besides that pasta, there wasn’t really another vegetarian option. So I sacrificed my vegetarian-ism in turn for a satisfied belly. I had some of that pesto penne, a mini corn dog, and a pulled chicken on a biscuit (not shown here). It wasn’t bad food, but not great by any means. In a city known for it’s amazing food, I was expecting better.
The desserts were just as disappointing. What you see above was an oatmeal cookie sandwich. I took a bite and threw the rest away. It just wasn’t worth it. But later on in the night Greg and I found some delicious sugar cookies with sprinkles baked into them. Now those were keepers. I had two. And then I suddenly felt much more satisfied with the food. Funny how that works.
We had such a fun time that the food was almost irrelevant. I’m already looking forward to next year’s Affair!
Charleston is simply the best.
