More than thirty SINHG members joined two separate explorations earlier this month – one of downtown Charleston’s abundant dining opportunities, and another of some of the city’s lesser known alleyways and passages. A culinary tour of upper King Street visited some of the peninsula’s newest restaurants, while a walking tour of downtown’s least known passageways finished up with a delicious southern lunch at the historic State Street dining room, complete with ham biscuits, gumbo and banana pudding. Later in the day, a session at The Lake House was dedicated to building the perfect charcuterie board with members supplied with a slate board and food for their creations. SINHG trips continue through mid-May. A schedule of autumn trips for members is in development.
