One of the biggest weekends of our year is just around the corner. We’re are in full scale “getting ready” mode. (Is it bad if we say some of the events we’re looking forward to the most are our own?!)
Thursday, March 6th we’re hosting renowned writer Jon Bonne for a book signing from 2:30-4:30.
Ann Ladson Jewelry will also be a partner in crime. She’s setting up shop with us on Thursday. If you’re not already familiar with her jewelry that, “embodies an organic sensibility marked by timeworn tools; at once the work is delicate, deliberate and rough-hewn,” you should be!
We’re major fans… of Ann & the photographer of her website Olivia Rae James!
Ann stays with us through, Friday night when we’ll be open into the evening to take advantage of the French Quarter Art Walk running officially from 5:30-8:30.
The other Ann in our lives, next door neighbor, Ann Long, of Ann Long Fine Art will be open late as well and you won’t be sorry that you were able to lay your eyes on her dazzling new show PAULA RUBINO: SEA CHANGE.
Then, Saturday, March 7th, from 11am forward, Chef Jeremiah Langhorne and Chef Spike Gjerde will be cooking a delicious brunch in our courtyard for those of you who don’t want to battle the Marion Square crowds. Menu is due to be in my hands any moment… rest assured, it will be delicious!
Here are some photos from out last courtyard soiree (pics also a la Olivia Rae James) where FIG’s chef de cuisine, Jason Stanhope made us a feast of lobsters bought in a local fundraiser for Grace Episcopal Church.

We made Fodors.com!! March 3, 2014
“Two of the most interesting new shops in Charleston happen to share a retail space. Located just off Broad Street, The Heirloom Collection sells a well-edited selection of hard-to-find and vintage cookbooks. The other side of this cozy retail space is home to The Commons, which showcases American-made goods for the home. Some of the best bets include slate cheese boards made in Brooklyn, hand-turned wooden bowls, and sailor knots from Keith Hudson. The shops occasionally host alfresco suppers, book signings, and tag sales as well.
