Hank's Seafood RestaurantA great review on 10best.com. "If you love She-Crab soup, then Hank's is the place for you!! We have eaten She-Crab soup at every restaurant we could find in the Charleston area, and Hank's is by far the very best!
I have only eaten at Hank's once and loved my meal.....but now, on your recommendation, I plan to go back to try Chef Frank's she crab soup!!

There was also a 'Piggy Park' drive-in near it.

Oh, and I forgot to mention: Wild Rice.

Another staple fare up in this part of the 40.
Piggy Park was big.

Nothing wrong with some wild rice.

My oldest son is 6'2"; 6'1" of that is wild rice.

His mother's people harvest it.

Piggy Park became the various Bessingers, I believe.

In Papua, mother-in-laws by tradition sit at the stern of the canoe.

That is because the inhabitants have learned that crocs most oftern take their victims from................. the stern of the canoe.

That's funny.

You are correct on Piggy Park becoming Bessingers.

Yes, a female crab is a she crab. A male is a jimmy.

Best thing to ever come out of Charleston, S.C.- with the possible exception of I-26.
Depends on what story you would like to believe. The one above is new to me...and about 30-40 years younger than some of the other stories floating around out there.
