    Cool. I’m in Charleston right now, grabbing lunch at the Middleton Place restaurant. Dennis, let me know if you want to check out the Hunley tomorrow.

      Damn, your timing is atrocious! Booked up with various commitments through the 22nd! This retired life is more hectic than working!

      Middleton isn't too shabby a spot to eat! If you need a meal in downtown Charleston, try the Sweetwater Cafe. It is on Market Street between King and Meeting!

        Forgot to add that Sweetwater is only open for breakfast and lunch, until 2 PM.

          There's a pretty good restaurant at the Francis Marion Hotel...

          We are not now that strength which in old days
          Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
          Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
          To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

            One of the really great, meaning fantastic, issues in the area is the incredible number of excellent places to have a meal. We have a dozen or so favorites and haven't even scratched the surface of all the places that have come highly recommended to us.
