…. Rob? Why are you in my bed, hun?

 

ah. Though I usually just drink my Natty. Now a fireplace, I don’t remeber seeing one there, and somthing that could burn a body? I highly doubt that, Rob.

Wait! There was a torch somewhere! Was it….a tiki torch of some sort? *He thinks back, and some sort of fiery image floated through his head* Is there anything in your pockets that could tell us something? I think a little exploring, or a call to the restaurant is in order, if not.

Oh yeah. That’s right we did go out to dinner now did we-three pints?
Three pints!? And not on Natty Boh’s!? I don’t belive I’ve ever drunk that much. *She sighed* Well at least we made it, amiright? Anywho, we need to figure out how you got this burn on you.

Yeah, I’m re-reading it, but it still says three pints on it, and no cocktails either. Crying shame. Yeah, you’ve got a point there. We did survive. Was there a fireplace in the restaurant, or something that could burn a body on the way back here?

something in my pocket. *He pulls out a crumpled piece of paper.* Do you know of a place called The Wharf Rat? 

*She nodded and started attending to his burn. Hey! I have a bit of southern in me, jeeze.* Oh yeah! The Wharf Rat. It’s a pub over in Fell’s point. *looks up at him* Is that what’s on the paper or somthing?

Yeah. Okay, so we know we went out for dinner last night because the ticket says 8 PM on it. The order reads:

1 Lump crab & artichoke pizza

3 pints Yard’s Tavern Spruce beer

Three pints?! Well, I know there was two of us to finish them, but good grief, it’s no wonder we can’t remember anything! I’m surprised we’re even alive after that much alcohol!

*He scratches his head and says* Beats me, darlin’. I’m as confused as you are. *He slowly gets up before laying back down* Ooh! Ouch! *He pulls up his sleeveless shirt to reveal a burn mark* Did we do anything involving fireworks last night? Holy…I’m going to need some aloe for this thing. 

Oh dear, are you alright? *She looked at the burn and frowned and picked her glasses up off of her nightstand and placed them on, examing the burn* I don’t belive I recall doing anything with fireworks, honestly. Oh yeah, I have some! Just a second. *She walked into her bath room and came out with a hand towel and and the aloe* Here, should I help you?

If you want to help, that’s fine by me. I don’t mind. *Okay, so I didn’t go THAT far with her. Thank God! The boys would never forgive me for going the whole nine yards with a Yankee.* 

Hey wait, I think there’s something in my pocket. *He pulls out a crumpled piece of paper.* Do you know of a place called The Wharf Rat?

International African American Museum to be built where slaves set foot in US

Organizers say a $75 million International African American Museum will be built beside the Charleston harbor where tens of thousands of slaves first set foot in the United States.

Charleston Mayor Joe Riley announced on July 15 that the museum will be built near where a wharf once stood in the South Carolina city where the Civil War began.

During the late 1770s and early 1800s, tens of thousands of slaves crossed the wharf entering the nation. Riley says there is no better site for the museum. The location is on the waterfront, just down and across the street from the original site planned for the museum.

The exhibition features eight distinct chapters that guide visitors through the African American story. Visitors begin in West Africa in the 17th century, and end with the formation of new African American communities in the 21st century.

Exhibition Themes Include

  • Africa & the Atlantic World
  • Plantation Labor & Rice Culture
  • Urban Life & Skilled Labor
  • Survival & Resistance
  • War & Emancipation
  • Building a Free Community
  • Community, Diaspora, Voice
  • National Culture, International Influence
  • Changing Exhibit Gallery

A digital wall backdrops the permanent exhibition, featuring stunning large-scale film, imagery, and life-sized interactive encounters with contemporary figures.

Students will be engaged through historically recreated environments, at a level of experience not possible in classrooms or traditional museums.

Additional spaces include a multi-purpose community room, gift shop, and a multimedia theater featuring signature films commissioned for IAAM.

The project was first announced 13 years ago.

Riley says construction on the 42,000-square-foot museum could begin in early 2016 with completion in 2018.

I didn’t have much other options.

Don’t get any ideas.

X’D I’m kidding, darlin’! *His voice is charming enough to smooth things over, though he wouldn’t have minded if she were serious, truth be told.* I’m just very flattered to be on the list of good choices is all. How has your day been? 

Anyone is above Maryland.

And it has been… Alright. Yourself?

You sure about the all right part? I’ve been very good. Myrtle Beach, Charleston, Folly Beach and Pawley’s Island were loving the surf off of Arthur. I didn’t really want to throw a huge shindig until after I knew he was leaving us alone though. *He gets an eerily happy grin on his face* Oh well, so much the better! I can plan for more of a big bang with some discounted fireworks. *Rubs hands together in delight*
