5pm in Charleston
By Chef Joe DiMaio
My favorite time of day in Charleston is around 5 o'clock during the fall season. My girlfriend and I like to hop around when we go out and get the most out of our night. We like to try as many new things as we can.
Waterfront Park is just a block away and if you are brave enough you can drink your beer and eat your cheese while watching the boats come and go.
Next stop would have to be Cypress on East Bay Street for Monday Burger Night, one of the best deals in town, you get an ever-changing burger for just five dollars.
Last stop would have to be The Bar at Husk for bourbon and maybe an appetizer, if we're still hungry. It is one of the only places in town that mixes tourists and industry who's who all in one and is just an all around great bar to relax and really feel like you’re in Charleston.
