Flame and I love travelling, and the inn has given us the opportunity to do so. This week, we’re on a road trip down to Tallahassee to see Flame’s sister. We’ve passed through Greensboro, NC, and are staying tonight in Columbia, SC. Here’s today’s discoveries.
Lunch today was at the Iron Hen in Greensboro. Locally owned (of course), it focuses on local, fair trade and/or organic foods. We loved this place, which will likely become a regular when we travel this way.
I’m passionate about any form of cooperative business, so while in Greensboro, we had to stop at the Deep Roots Market, a coop grocery store. Definitely the place to shop in town. One of my few regrets about Charlottesville is the lack of a cooperative grocery.
We’re staying tonight in our first Airbnb space. I’m hoping our guests are as pleased with us as we are about our host tonight! Airbnb will definitely become a regular part of our travel plans.
Dinner was at the Hunter-Gatherer Brewery. Flame’s duck breast and my chicken thighs were both excellent, as was the Ye Olde Basterde stout. Ironically, it was a bit difficult managing a paleo diet at the Hunter Gatherer, but the food was more than worth it. Flame’s quote of the month – “I prefer my carbs in a glass!”
That’s it for our first day of travel. Tomorrow, Tallahassee!
