Up, up and away!
Basils Restaurant, Charleston, S.C.
This always makes me think of the bikes riding into the sky in ET. It is on the roof of one of Charleston's best Thai restaurants Basil. Oh yum. Green curry with eggplant, pad thai, oh my. It was the old Robinson's Bike Shop and the bicycle remained through a few business reincarnations and has become a King St. landmark. The bike store closed in 1998 after 110 years in business. That is quite a track record.
It's the weekend, kids! I didn't get out early but I did celebrate by going to see In Secret at the Terrace Theater which turned out to be a most depressing movie. I cheered myself up by stopping at Earthfare for a yummy dinner from their gourmet deli bar.
