this week we’re headed south, to vintage charleston, south carolina and i hope you have a hankering for some seafood. we’re dropping into the darling oyster bar, definitely a darling little spot that celebrates the bounty of the nearby seaside and where fresh seafood is the star of the show. Housed in a lovingly restored, 115-year-old storefront, the darling strives for only the best in local ingredients and sustainability, and naturally fresh from the sea oysters, a favorite of mine. Grab a stool at the 14-seat raw bar fronting charleston’s bustling King Street or settle into one those comfy big green booths. Or perhaps perch beside the full-service bar and order up one of their signature Bloody Marys — topped with a lobster claw among other delectable and drinkable things. we’re going chic, but comfy casual, because after our seafood brunch, we’re going to hit the city market and walk this meal off! be sure to bring you favorite tote bag; dress warmly in a soft sweater that’ll blend right in, along with a fun plaid coat, faded black jeans and comfortable Chelsea boots and beanie. while you’re sipping (eating!) that bloody mary, i suggest a good southern story, Under the Tulip Tree by Michelle Shocklee. it’s about Rena, an unemployed newspaper reporter, whose seven years into the Great Depression when she meets Frankie Washington, a 101-year-old former slave. While Frankie’s story challenges Rena’s preconceptions about slavery, it also connects the two women whose lives are otherwise separated by age, race, and circumstances.
