Charleston--Hollywood and Culinary Tours

In the morning, I visited the set of Army Wives. It's amazing to see how a large crew takes so many hours to put a single shot together. Paying attention to detail barely describes how these hard working folks put a Lifetime series together. The afternoon was filled with visiting even more Charleston restaurants including Dixie Bakery, home to the world's best grits. We also sampled some great BBQ at Jim 'n Nicks. They're a small chain that started in Alabama, but the Q gives the Carolinas some stiff competition. We checked out the latest gadgets at Charleston Cooks! The visit reminded me of the time I went crazy in the Le Creuset store a few blocks away about two years ago. On the way back, some members of our group tried out the bench in front to Hyman's restaurant and market.


It's been two years since I've been here. Some things have changed and others are familiar like an old friend. Over 15 years ago, I was here on a 2-week shoot and spent quite a bit of time at the downtown Market. I browsed through here in '07 as well. Later on, I hit Grill 225 with a group of very talented writers and visual artists. Broiled Lump Crab Cakes from Indonesia was a huge hit for me. The interesting topic of conversion was the offering of Grill 225's Nitrotinis drinks. Check this awesome restaurant out at: Grill
