Charleston, SC is one of America’s best, and most unique, eating cities. The Daily Meal has posted their choices for the ten best places to eat in Charleston and, while we would certainly dispute their choices (which is the point of compiling and posting such a list), you won’t go wrong using their story during your next Charleston sojourn. At the very least, be sure to get to FIG and Hominy Grill.
Make a Yinzer Expat Happy for the Holidays
Once a yinzer, always a yinzer. We don’t know why but it seems that people from Pittsburgh carry their birth identity with them no matter where they end up, more so than most folks.

We already wrote about the Primanti’s box newly available this year, but how about an Isaly’s chipped chopped ham box, or a Prantl’s Burnt Almond Torte? Your yinzer needs to lose a few pounds? Get her or him a Heinz ketchup bottle, pickle, pierogi, or stuffed cabbage tree ornament.
