Winter Weekend in Charleston: Part I

Doesn’t every weekend story start with a great brunch? A few weekends ago, I took a quick trip down to Charleston with friends, our intended goal to eat and drink all of the things. I think we made pretty good progress towards that.

We started our chilly Saturday morning in Charleston with the Pappas driving tour of the city followed by brunch at Poogan’s Porch. Tucked in a stately old home on Queens Street, Poogan’s Porch has been serving Charlestonians and visitors alike delicious Southern classics.

I kicked the meal off with a boozy iced coffee, which was rich and delicious.

For the table, we shared the fried green tomatoes and mac & cheese. Both were phenomenal.

For my main, I got the biscuits and gravy. I’m a huge biscuit fan, and I was not disappointed. The gravy was well-seasoned and tasty without being overwhelming. The biscuits were flakey and soft. Poogan’s Porch never disappoints.

After brunch, we walked through downtown, stopping at Rainbow Row.

We also walked through the City Market.

After all of that walking and history, it was time for a beer! We stopped at Closed for Business on King Street to plan our next stop. I tried the Cooper River Orange Infused Blonde Ale. It was the perfect afternoon beer, light and citrusy.

Check back next week to see the Charleston weekend adventures continue!
