BE STILL MY HEART.
BE STILL MY HEART.
This Saturday, Harper and I are hosting a little pop-up trunk and photo show at The Farmbar (1600 Meeting Street) to showcase our recent trip to Peru. Jeni’s ice cream and the Autobanh food trucks will be supplying the grub and Blake will be making pisco sours later in the afternoon, but feel free to BYOB and camp out in the field with us all day — it’s finally supposed to be sunny and beautiful!
We could not be more excited. Hope to see you there!
Charleston’s Snowpocalypse has been a hilariously exciting experience. Businesses, schools, restaurants, and some major bridges are shut down due to a little snow/ice wintery mix. But everybody loves a snow day, and Charleston is looking extra beautiful all covered in white. This morning Blake and I walked to the Battery in the freezing rain (which hurts coming down) — and I then baked some chocolate chip cookies and started working on my taxes. There’s something about the freedom of knowing I don’t have to get anything done that makes me feel extra productive.
Stay cozy out there!
So The Farmbar is officially a reality — Tara and Leighton’s dream has manifested in an airstream in a field on upper Meeting Street. The above photos are from various pop-ups over the last few months plus the official opening last Friday. We spent breakfast, lunch, and dinner there, plus hours post-dinner gathered around the fire with rosé (true to form). I see so many more of these nights in the future.
The beauty of the Spartanette and shipping container they gutted, the flavors in every single bite of every dish Tara has ever made (looking at you, pork-ricotta burger) — it’s all a testament to the hard work, effortless style and impeccable taste that is embodied in anything these two do together. From here on out, The Farmbar will be open Tuesdays and Fridays breakfast through dinner, in the field next to 1600 Meeting. More info on their site.
