After Sunday nights game in Charleston, I decided to stay the night. I usually start driving to the next city immediately after games, but with no game on Monday, I had time to stay and check out the city. Monday started with breakfast at a local restaurant called Vicious Biscuit. It was recommended to me by some guys at the RiverDogs game and it was a great call. No Free Ads, but they made what may have been the best biscuit I've ever had and I mean that. I will definitely be going back when I return to the city.
Next stop was the South Carolina Aquarium. While waiting for my time to enter the aquarium, I wandered over to the Fort Sumter Visitor Center and watched an instructional video by Ranger Gary on how to properly load and fire a cannon. It was very informative. I'll have to come back and take the Fort Sumter tour another time. First stop in the aquarium was the stingrays. I must have touched a dozen of them. (Not a World Record)
The aquarium was full of cool animals from the stingrays, sea horses, turtles, to a one winged bald eagle named Liberty. Even so, the craziest thing I saw all day didn't come until later Monday evening, far away from the aquarium. About an hour outside of Charleston, on the road to Durham, there was this magical place.
I'm no Wonton Don, but I would consider myself to be a somewhat well traveled man. I've seen a KenTacoHut, where KFC, Taco Bell, and Pizza Hut are all in one location, but I've never even heard of a PopTacoHut. Fortunately for me, I had already eaten dinner at a nice seafood place in Charleston. I'm not sure if I could have entered this place and been mentally or physically capable of continuing the trip. One day, when I'm older and wiser, and hopefully in better shape, I will enter this thunder dome of taste! Until then, I'm off to Durham.
