Chipotle is now open in Florence, SC and I'm stoked

Posted by SCBeachtrips.com on Thursday, July 25, 2013, In : Food 

I've always liked Chipotle and it's a great thing that it's a chain because chances are if the small towns are big enough, they will open one. I always get the barbacoa burrito with tomato salsa, black beans, sour cream and guacamole. The guacamole this time cost me 1.80 extra so my burrito turn out to be over $9 with taxes and I didn't even order a drink. I guess it's really expensive for a burrito but it's so good, I'll fork over $9 every once in a while for it. 

What's a bonus is I got a go...

If you've never driven towards the end of the Florence Darlington Technical College's campus where the Southeastern Institute of Manufacturing and Technology (SIMT) is, you'll never know how truly big the campus is. SIMT is a beautiful building with more fountains to see. It was a cloudy day when I took this picture but imagine it on a beautiful day!

I got free cupcakes on my birthday by being a part of Ruby Tuesday's loyalty program

Posted by SCbeachtrips.com on Thursday, July 18, 2013, In : Food 

I like joining rewards programs for restaurants because most of the time, I will get a free meal coupon for my birthday. Even though Ruby Tuesday's doesn't give you a free meal, they give you a free dessert where you get to pick among two. I picked the cupcakes to share with my husband. It's a nice treat. You just print out the coupon that they email to you around your birthday but you need to join their rewards program on their website. One is a carrot cupcake and the other is velvet.

Shogun Japanese Steakhouse is a great place for hot Japanese Food in Florence

Posted by SCBeachTrips.com on Thursday, July 18, 2013, In : Food 

I've been to Miyami a couple of times and I was never impressed. I'm so glad we discovered Shogun Japanese Steakhouse because the food taste and quality of the food is so much better! It's kind of a small, underrated place. After talking to the waitress, I realized this place has been opened for many years before Miyami. 

It's a Japanese restaurant but they are owned by Vietnamese owners. The flavors are amazing. Here is a picture of my plate and the experience. Hands down, Shogun Japanese Ste...

If you're planning a family get together and it's a nice day, going to the David H McLeod Park with a picnic basket and some great company is a wonderful way to enjoy a pretty day. With a skate park, a dog park, picnic tables, stationed grill and pretty pond and trees, this park is a knock out. See pictures below from our visit.

Tom Hum or Chinese Lobster can be found at Dim Sum Chinese Restaurant in Charlotte

Posted by Master Pet on Saturday, July 6, 2013,
We found an okay tom hum (Chinese lobster) place in Charlotte, NC. It's not comparable to Santa Ana, California but it fixes the craving. At Dim Sum Chinese Restaurant, you can order fresh lobsters and have them cooked in two styles: either ginger and scallions or Cantonese style. We picked the Cantonese style. It was kind of expensive for their lobsters though. They have one set price of $50.95 for a 2.5lb lobsters the day we came in. Eeek! I remember when I can get 12.99 a lb in Santa Ana b...

Pho An Hoa is pretty good in Charlotte, NC

Posted by scbeachtrips.com on Saturday, July 6, 2013,
We were visiting Charlotte, NC for the day and craving Vietnamese food. After doing some research online, we decided to go to Vietnam Grille but they were closed for vacation for July 4th week so then we decided to go to Ben Thanh. When we got to Ben Thanh, we discovered that the place was closed for vacation too! What the heck? Did they go on vacation together?

So then, we decided to go to the Vietnamese restaurant near Ben Thanh called Pho An Hoa and we were not disappointed! The pho and mi...

Pretty fountain at Florence Darlington Technical College (FDTC)

Posted by SCbeachtrips.com on Saturday, July 6, 2013,
If you read an older blog post of mine, you already know that I've been thinking about starting school at FDTC for this fall. After getting accepted into the school, I decided to go get my ID before it gets too busy so I drove to the main campus and walked to the Student Services building. I was very glad to have walked by the fountain on my way there. It made the place so tranquil and welcoming. I can picture myself sitting here often with my lunch.

Here's the picture of the fountain as I ma...
