I’ve been so excited about this week’s planned addition to Liz Talbot’s Charleston Getaway Weekend because it’s a visit to someplace I personally love, and of course that means Liz does as well. I’ve been planning all along for the next-to-last prize in the package to be dinner at FIG, which is one of the remaining restaurants mentioned in Lowcountry Boneyard.
The meal that Liz and Nate have in the book–Jim and I have sat at that exact table and relished that dinner. And it is divine.
But…that’s not to take anything away from the long list of other fabulous restaurants in Charleston. There are so many to choose from.
Whoever wins this package and his/her spouse, significant other, friend, mother, sister, or whoever, their choice might not be my choice. And my choice varies depending on my mood. It’s virtually impossible to pick a bad restaurant in Charleston. The winner might be in the mood for Magnolias, Husk, High Cotton, Charleston Grill–or any one of dozens of possibilities. Maybe they would like to go over to Mt. Pleasant and eat at one of the Shem Creek restaurants.
Or maybe they want to enjoy the sunset at Bowens Island and have some oysters….
Last night as I was drifting off to sleep, I decided to make this week’s prize addition a Visa gift card for $250. The winner & guest can use it to go to Fig and have the meal that’s in Lowcountry Boneyard (or any other delicious thing on the menu) or choose any other restaurant they like. If the winner is in the mood for a more low-key dinner, she/he can use the remaining money on the gift card however she/he chooses.
*NOTE: Dear Winner, whoever you may be, as SOON as your know your travel dates, make your restaurant reservations or you may not get your first choice. Unless you’re going to Bowens Island. They don’t take reservations as far as I know.
If you haven’t heard about Liz Talbot’s Charleston Getaway, read all the details here. We’re building a prize package by adding one item each week. One winner of the weekend getaway to beautiful Charleston, SC, will be drawn at the Lowcountry Boneyard launch party on April 21, 2015, at Fiction Addiction in Greenville, SC. Most of the items in the package will be visits to places Liz visits in Lowcountry Boneyard.
