Monday. It’s here!
So, you remember last year when I went to Nashville with my BFF Heather for a singing tournament that I direct? Of course you do. I wrote about it here.
A new restaurant is in town.
It’s a chain, but only kind of.
The Local Taco started alllllll the way in Tennessee (not really), and just opened a location in Greenville! I’ve been there three times now, and I LIKE IT A LOT. Also, I ate leftovers from dinner last weekend yesterday for lunch and I LIKED THEM A LOT.
Seriously. This place is great. A manager, Kris, emailed and asked if we’d like to come write a review and duh, we did. I had already been and wanted to take Jay, so we went for an early dinner last week before we went to see my sister sing the national anthem at a hockey game. Because you care about things like that.
Local Taco is a Mexican-fusian restaurant, if I had to call it anything. Their menus are different at each of their locations based on local favorites. They use local ingredients, too, which I love.
Not really, but that’s what happened anyways.
High Cotton in Greenville, SC, is wonderful. REALLY wonderful. We’ve been there several times for different occasions, and I don’t think we’ve EVER had anything we don’t like.
Over Labor Day weekend we went to Boone, NC with some friends Jay knows from his old life in DC. We had a blast, we ate, we drank, we cooked, and we heard lots of stories about what a terrible comedian Jay was.
More on that later, though.
Also while we were there, our friends requested that we find a great BBQ place since there aren’t tons of great places to get pulled pork where they live.
Or, any, according to them.
So, we found this place. Bandana’s Bar B Que and Grill.
It’s a waterway. With boats parked.
It’s breezy. There are seagulls.
It’s a building. With a really big porch.
It’s a restaurant.
It’s a bar.
It’s Dead End Saloon in Oak Island NC and MAN, did we love this place. My friend Jessica’s parents live near Southport NC, about 15 minutes away, and my family has been vacationing on Oak Island for years and years. I doubt we’ll ever go anywhere else.
