Folly Beach and A Night Out in Charleston

I'm still having a ragin' time at the beach with my fam.  The days are running together now, but Tuesday we headed to the beach for a while, which has pretty much been a daily occurance except for yesterday when it rained.

We decided to all head to the little town of Folly Beach again for lunch, and this time went to Taco Boy.  It's an eclectic little joint.

We ordered fresh guacamole, chips, and salsa to start with.

I ordered a grilled fish taco and a carnitas (pork) taco.

Everything was delicious.  I loved this place :)

Later, we took happy hour out to the beach.  Greg had purchased a new beach umbrella and was excited to give it a try, so we all stood around under it like dorks :)

We had margaritas made with 1/3 tequila, 1/3 Grand Marnier, 1/3 pineapple juice to mix things up (and because we were out of limes).

Greg and I decided to split off from the fam on Tuesday night and head into Charleston for a date night on the town.  He has had a lot of overnights in Charleston over the years and wanted to take me to the rooftop bar at the Vendue Inn.

We each ordered a martini.  I had a Carolina Peach and Greg had a Charleston Sweetini.  Both were fruity and good.

We ordered two kind of light apps- the tomato bruscetta and a caprese style salad.  The lighting got bad and I couldn't get a decent picture of either.

After dinner we wandered around the area, checking out a nearby fountain and pier. 

We asked a local person for a recommendation on where to get some good dessert and she told us to try Kaminsky's on Market Street.  This place was the jackpot.  A case full of decadent looking desserts, coffees, drinks, and a fun funky vibe.  I got a decaf and Greg tried a steamer (like a hot chocolate).  We split the bourbon pecan pie and the cappucino torte.

Even with the light dinner, this was waaaaaaaaaaay too much dessert, so we ended up taking about half of it home.  It was a fun night out.  We definitely need to come back to Charleston for a romantic weekend sometime.
