Okay, so I know the donut shop was the first place I really found in Charleston, here is the first real-food place I discovered on my own. One day on my lunch break, I searched far and wide [read: in the plaza across the street from my office] for something to eat and stumbled upon Cory's Grilled Cheese. They started out as a food truck but opened their first location recently on James Island. They have some pretty creative sandwiches and delicious sides. My favorite, by far, is Cory's Famous: Muenster cheese, crispy bacon, and honey Dijon on cinnamon swirl and raisin toast. Trust me, don't knock it until you've tried it! I've since brought everyone I can think of there! They even have open mic on Tuesdays and acoustic music on Sundays. So, after you go out on Friday night for Halloween, head over the Cory's on Saturday for a nice, greasy and carb-y grilled cheese!
And yes, it's located in the back corner of a strip mall, next to a Dollar General - makes it even better!

You have to try their Summer Slaw, too!

Hornsby's Crisp Hard Cider: Now that we've jumped into fall, let's take a step back to summer. Hornsby's was the very first new cider I tried down here in SC in August. It's fairly sweet and more refreshing than typical tart ciders. It was definitely a perfect poolside drink,
Harpoon Pumpkin Cider: And now we're completely back to fall. Last year, I tried Woodchuck's Pumpkin cider, and it left something to be desired, so I was a littler nervous with this one and only bought one in a Mix Six pack this month. Big mistake. My love for Harpoon runs deep. It was the first cider I ever tried, and this guy didn't disappoint. Even though it says it's made with real pumpkin, what I really taste is the pumpkin pie spice: cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, and it's very tasty. With all of these spices, it isn't too tart and definitely a good cider to enjoy around Thanksgiving.
