Goodbye, F.I.G, *sniff*

I heading down the home stretch. I'm almost all packed, Pod is scheduled, and I have made my last trip to Goodwill. I hope. I wanted to visit FIG one more time, and we did last night. Of course, it met expectations and then some.

There were three of us. We shared two appetizers: the Brown Shrimp Remoulade, served on a nice John's Island heirloom tomato (a real drippy one-yum) and the pate. I will surely miss that pate.

It was hard to pick an entree. Since my friend decided to get the triggerfish, I got the grouper so we could share. It came with little butterbeans in a light sauce I could never hope to replicate. My other friend got the tagliolini with stone crab, which was as rich as it sounds. That nice bottle of Albarino made it all just right.

I had a moment of self-doubt on my way across the bridge going home, but only one. I know people with beach houses. I'll be back.
