The Cocktail Club was amazing last night! Some old friends and I met to swap a few fox tails over delicious hand crafted cocktails…“some things are better done in private.”
To find this hidden gem of sophistication and libations you’ll have to walk just a few steps up the stairs above the Macintosh located on Upper King Street.
Become a member or just stop in for a house made infusion, rare spirit, or a farm-to-shaker beverage Monday through Sunday, 5pm to 2am. They also offer cocktail classes for the distinguished drinker seeking an education!
We enjoyed a beautiful sunset out on the rooftop terrace where they grow the fresh herbs that went into my “Double Standard” with house-infused Serrano gin and cucumber vodka blended with cucumber water, ginger syrup finished with celery bitters and garnished with fresh cilantro and a touch of Serrano pepper. Wow, what a drink! I could even see my home up there along with the rest of Charleston.
The next time you are in town don’t forget to stop by, the Cocktail Club!

Stop by for Bacon Happy Hour Monday through Friday 5pm -7pm and stay for dinner to enjoy a creative twist on the traditional American Southern table. They sure didn’t make food like this when I was a young fox.
Local Produce! Local Seafood! Homegrown Charleston Chef!
What is Jeremiah’s Dirty Little Secret?…you’ll have to find out for yourself!
Don’t miss out on the Housemade Ricotta Gnudi with Chorizo, English Peas, Cherry Tomatoes and Aged Sherry Vinegar! Yum!
Shiver me timbers!…Hangin’ with Stede Bonnet listening to his stories really makes me appreciate International Talk Like a Pirate Day today, 9/19. Travel back in time and visit the Old Exchange and Provost Dungeon, a National Historic Landmark, at East Bay and Broad Streets. History will come alive as you walk the very steps where George Washington greeted his fellow Americans. The tour highlights various aspects of Charleston history during the Colonial and Revolutionary eras and tells intriguing pirate stories that make you want to “Weigh anchor and hoist the mizzen!”
Meeting and Event Planners – ask my friends in the Sales office how we can cater your next event at the Old Exchange and Provost Dungeon.
We love low-cost carriers, especially when they offer direct flights in and out of my hometown. Commencing February 28, 2013, JetBlue will offer nonstop, daily flights between Charleston and New York’s JFK Airport twice a day and once a day from Boston’s Logan Airport.
Join me next spring on a trip Northeast and fly in comfort… JetBlue has all leather seats and free live television on every seatback, offering 36 TV channels, as well as more than 100 satellite radio stations. The first checked bag will also be free. I need that…since I have many tee shirts to pack for my trip!

I’ve heard the term “shop ‘til you drop,” but now I must say… girls, don’t forget to check out our new King Streetstore, Shoes on King. The store just opened Thursday 9/6, with one of the most exciting selections of shoes (I’m partial to red), boots, purses, socks and jewelry. I loved the décor, elegant chairs and sleek presentation of their merchandise. The added plus…friendly sales people, who really enjoyed a visit from a sly fox!
