Pontiac House of Pizza – 10531 Two Notch Rd, Elgin, SC 

It’s not everyday that we make it out of our windowless office to see the bright sunshine, but a few weeks ago on the most blessed of days, our job required us to go on a shopping trip. We had to buy furniture and décor to create a set for the new online Bible study, so we met Megan (our volunteer style coordinator and shopper) and her daughter Georgia in Sandhills. By the time we got to the first store, Megan had already picked out most of the set. (Praise!) After hitting up a couple of other stores to search for the remaining items, it was lunch time, and we were hungry.

The Kingsman – 936 Axtell Drive, Cayce, SC 29033

As you may or may not remember from previous posts, the Music & Media Team likes to celebrate birthdays by eating together. We don’t get to go out for everyone’s birthday individually because we don’t have time for all of that, but after a few birthdays accumulate, we normally make it out to celebrate. Debbie, Sylvia, Aaron, and Lauren all had birthdays that we needed to celebrate and today, May 25, was special because it was Mr. Steve’s actual birthday.

Good Life Cafe – 1614 Main St, Columbia, SC

As I mentioned it the last SLB, a conference brought a good friend of mine from college into town. I was fortunate enough to be able to grab an early lunch with her (before going to second lunch at DaufusKEYS with Philip and Scott). Lauren wrote a postcard inviting me to BCM (Baptist Collegiate Ministry) the summer before I started my freshman year at USC. We went on to live across the hall from each other in Columbia Hall and eventually in a crummy, but fun for college students, apartment with another good friend of ours. We all live in different places now, but try our best to keep up with each other.

DaufusKEYS Gullah Bistro & Piano Bar – 1710 Main St. Columbia, SC

The revitalization of Main Street has been exciting in these recent years, bringing some cool new places to eat and entertain one’s self. With every new renovation, I perk up to see what new restaurant I’ll get to try. About three weeks ago, DaufusKEYS Gullah Bistro & Piano Bar opened on Main Street (Where Mac’s on Main used to be). I put it on my list of places to visit, but wasn’t sure when I’d get to give it a go.

Shealy’s BBQ – 340 E Columbia Ave, Leesville, SC 29070

One of my favorite yearly events here is the First Seniors trip to Shealy’s BBQ. Shealy’s and I go way back, so nary will you find an occasion when I won’t seize the opportunity to go. I also like hanging out with the First Seniors because they’re super fun. For this blog entry, I didn’t take still photos and I’m not going to do a write up. Instead, I’m vlogging (video blogging) and allowing my friends from the First Seniors ministry to tell you about some of the things that they like to eat at Shealy’s. So, without further ado, I give you the Sunday Lunch VLOG.

Behind the Scenes : Children’s Musical Design & Studio Tour

Behind the Scenes : Children’s Musical Design & Studio Tour

When I go into a new church, restaurant, watch a movie, hear a song, visit Disney World, or come across anything else that interests me, I always wonder how it works. How does that particular church operate? What’s the kitchen like in that restaurant and what’s their flow to get the food out in a timely manner? How was that movie made? How was that song composed and recorded? How does something as big as Disney World operate so smoothly and uniformly? Continue reading →

Behind The Scenes : Staff Fire Safety Training

I’ve decided to try to start filming some “Behind The Scenes” videos to show you what happens around here on the non Sunday days. They’re meant to be lighthearted and fun and just another way to bond with you through this wires and waves that we call the Internet. If you like them, I’ll try to keep making them. If you don’t like them and complain a lot, I’ll probably stop. There’s always the comments section in this blog 😉 Continue reading →

The War Mouth – 1209 Franklin St. Columbia, SC

The War Mouth was on my list for a while. I think the fact that they had $16 Chicken Bog on their menu made me nervous to go. I make a pretty good Chicken Bog at home and get way more than a serving for that price. But I had heard good things about it this funky New Southern restaurant and my curiosity was piqued. When a few of my girl friends that I hadn’t seen in a while suggested that we all get together at The War Mouth, I was doubly in.
