Starting this afternoon, Charleston has a jam-packed weekend of Halloween events on its schedule. With a city full of college kids, it might be tempting to keep the party moving through next week. The harsh reality? Some of us must leave the costumes and craziness behind to button back up for a new work week. That 9 am meeting comes way too early. Amen Street makes the perfect spot for a sweet, low-key Halloween night. Costumes encouraged.
I personally cannot think of a better place to fall into a sugar-induced Halloween coma than Amen Street. Of course, you can always stop in for fresh seafood any day of the week, but their desserts and wine pairings are insanely good for this special occasion.
I dream about Amen’s Berry Bread Pudding. It’s so rich and delicious it could actually be a meal itself.
Chef Ollard just dreamed up new desserts, featured on Amen Street’s daily special menu. If you’re lucky, you can still get a slice of his Coconut Cream Pie- served with Chantilly Cream and Raspberry Coulis. So delicious! Laura Lovisone, Amen’s General Manager and her awesome staff can suggest the perfect wines to round it all out.
If you’d rather drink some sweetness, or need some hair of the dog, try Grandma’s Milk and Cookies Martini, layered with Godiva Chocolate Liquor, Gran Marnier, Kahlua, Milk . Or sip on a glass of Dogfish Head’s Punkin Ale. Amen’s bartenders are always pouring decadent dessert drinks and festive seasonal beers.
Happy Halloween, Charleston!
