Television personality and consumer of all things odd Andrew Zimmern is popping up all over the Lowcountry, and Charlestonians have the Instagrams to prove it. Zimmern acted as host to last night’s party for newly opened 1KEPT in the Renaissance Charleston Historic District Hotel.
In addition to the fête, Zimmern and local food and beverage notables were filming in-room videos for Renaissance — those quasi-commercials delivered to every television in the hotel on the default first screen. According to the Instagram from The Grocery, chefs Mike Lata and Kevin Johnson, the Cocktail Bandits Johnny Caldwell and Taneka Reaves, singer Elise Testone, and Garden & Gun editor-in-chief Dave DiBenedetto were also on hand to presumably chat about how great Charleston is.
Did you spot Zimmern while he was in town? Is he still here? Do you care? Leave it in the comments.
