Day 8 in Charleston, my last day!
So this is the last travel blog post of my adventures in Charleston, after a week it has come to a close and been an ultimate adventure, I call it the New York of the South.
If you haven’t read past updates I’ve posted just about everyday I was there and what I did that day and all my adventures inside each post so go back and check them out if your thinking about visiting or bored and chillin. The last day I explored Waterfront park, the Market Pavilion hotel that Anthony Bourdain once visited and randomly exploring the city streets. I also had lunch at the Market Pavilion and dinner at Melvins BBQ NOM.
Market Pavilion Hotel Lunch
The market pavilion hotel is cool but not worth the $600 night cool, it’s kind of dated with an old school look and vintage feel since it is old. However the food was all basically Sysco frozen crap you can buy anywhere in the US and the pool and upstairs deck was probably the coolest part. However the plastic windows blocking the view so birds or people don’t jump is absolute shit, way to ruin one of the best views in the city. They also have no gluten-free bread!

My day 3 & 4 adventures scouring Charleston, South Carolina
So after day 1 getting here, day 2 exploring King St, day 3 & 4 has lead me out to venture a little more and start using my camera as well as YELP app to explore more touristy things. My first day jumping into a coffee shop to grab some coffee to coming out noticing someone hit my tailight on my rental. The one thing that’s scary about Charleston is the narrow streets and mostly parallel parking everywhere, luckily had insurance so who cares right?!!
After a visit to Pepboys and GMC to just see if it’s cheaper to fix it myself was a let down, they wanted $600 for a taillight how bullshit is that. Well nextstop was lunch and I passed a spot called Swig & Swine I saw on Yelp as top rated so I had to pay it a visit.
Swig & Swine, some damn good BBQ.

Day 2 in Charleston, South Carolina
So on my second day in Charleston after day 1 flying in and going to sleep I then bookmarked all the gluten-free restaurants/places I could find to set out on an adventure. First I needed to grab some clothes and shoes and ended up at Tanger Outlets for a wardrobe then found a Sperry store on “King St.”. I had no idea at the time King St. was the happening part of Charleston, located in historic downtown near Charleston College, this place has bars, restaurants, shops, Gucci, and everything you could imagine. If you were to teleport into Hogwarts and go shopping, some of shops here would remind you of that, real old school magical feel.
Once I got some new legit Sperry gold toe shoes I wanted to find a good bar, so read on below and hit read more to see my reviews and photos of my first day adventure in Charleston. It was raining bad yesterday so I didn’t get much shots of the outside, historic part.
Near where I parked on King St.
Motor Supply Co. Bistro, Columbia, South Carolina
Cool restaurant for Columbia, probably one of their finest dining.
Appetizer okay, dessert awesome, my Ribeye sucked, had so much fat I felt like peter griffin.
I had some Pork Chop which was good.
Big T’s Bar-B-Que, Columbia, South Carolina
Best Pulled Pork I have ever had, and the sauce was sweet and tasty, amazing spot!
$5 Bottle at Aldi in South Carolina
I have never seen a bottle of Cab from Napa Valley under $15-20 before, and it turned out to be amazing. Great flavor.
