Jam Packed Weekend

This weekend was whirlwind!  I will just give a quick recap cause my week is hectic and I know I have been missing in action:

Friday:  Finished the final touches on my cigar lounge & had a dinner at Logan's Roadhouse with some old friends that live in CT and NJ.  It was great to catch up and see them and reminisce about our old days of all of us working together at the golf club.  Wish they lived closer but at least they still come to visit.    We then finished dinner with drinks at the new 2nd Avenue Pier.  This place is great and even though it was dark out it was still nice to sit by the ocean with cocktails.  God, I love where I live.

Saturday:  Was a very big and exciting day.  We opened Nick's Cigar Lounge.  Everything went perfectly and I am so relieved to have it up and running.  Still waiting on a couple of photos for the walls and a couple of more tables and then I will post about the finished product.  We have our first event there on Wednesday night so I will post about our Challenge Your Palate event with Ashton Cigars.  Saturday evening was spent down in Murrell's Inlet with my new man D. and my friends Evan and Beth.  We went to get some good low country seafood at Sara J's.  Three of us had the Shrimp and Grits (FAB!) and the other had stuffed shrimp. It was a great dinner and we had the best view!  Since it is Harley Davidson Rally this week we had cocktails and listened to a great rock band at Causeway just down the street...the people watching was pretty FAB! too...

Sunday:  Thankfully Sunday was just a perfect and relaxing day to get me geared up for this week.  Had a nice breakfast with D. at the barrel  (cracker barrel) and then spent the afternoon by the pool reading my new book Summer in the City by Candace Bushnell.  This book is a must read if you are a fan of hers.  I am obsessed with all things Carrie Bradshaw so I had to get this, I do suggest reading The Carrie Diaries first.

This week is a big one, Monday: RHONJ season premiere!, Wednesday: Challenge Your Palate Event, Friday-Sunday: Wedding in Athens, GA...

  1. Hey woman!
    Wanted to say hi and congrats on all your successes! Can't wait to sip on some cocktails while smokin' some of Nick's femme cigars at your new lounge when I visit this summer!
    I'm also wondering to myself as I read this why the hell did I leave and why the hell didn't we hang out more!?!
