One thing about being a Columbia girl is that sometimes it’s just too easy to do the same ole same ole. I’m pretty predictable sometimes as far as my restaurant tastes go, so D and I make an effort a lot of times to go somewhere we’ve never been.
Queue last Thursday night. We headed to The Crescent Olive for the first time to check it out. They were having a fundraiser for Curing Kids Cancer so it seemed like the perfect night to stop in. They poured us each a glass of wine (plus a few drops of strawberry olive oil) and then D and I went around tasting oils on bread before heading to another room and sampling them on vanilla ice cream! It was a lot of fun – and tasty, too! We picked up two different kinds of olive oil to take home. One was lavender, of course, but he picked it!
We had the following for dinner:
wings – twice fried wings tossed in a Korean inspired chile sauce, served with ranch dip
crab claw mac’n cheese – Southern style crab mac’n’cheese made with snow crab, served with a crab claw and butter dip
Kobe beef sliders three all-beef sliders, served with fries; choose 3 dips
We enjoyed it and it was definitely something different! We also discovered they have trivia on Thursday nights … for cash prizes! I cost D the $50 cash prize when I went with George Strait over Garth Brooks for one answer. But I did know the answer to “what’s the first letter on a typewriter?” Hello, Q!
