If the name Kid Cashew confuses you, don’t fret. I asked one of the staff about where this unique moniker came from and found out that this Greek / Mediterranean restaurant’s name has a story.
Names aside, this is a fanatic restaurant with some of the most friendly staff you’ll find anywhere in Charlotte.

It’s the World’s Smallest Police Station…or at least it used to be. We stopped in at the town of Ridgeway, South Carolina just off of US 21 to visit a police station that is little bigger than a bathroom stall.
The station first opened its doors in 1940 and was last used for law enforcement purposes in 1990. Today it serves as a visitor kiosk, but still proudly displays a sign recognizing its significance as a micro office for police. Just beside the old station is the new police station which opened its doors in 1990. While the new station is larger (about 2x as large as its predecessor), it too is a testament to tiny work spaces.

Who doesn’t remember the thrill of visiting the carnival, fair, and amusement park for death defying roller coasters, goofy characters, and giant stuffed prizes? Over time, memories of those once dazzling spectacles often fade and the stuffed bears are thrown away, but the aroma of the food lingers on.
Hot dogs, turkey legs, cotton candy, nachos, and more. There’s something special about the taste and aroma of the treats we could only find under the Big Top that brought smiles to our younger selves. Those memories tend to resurface at local parades or sporting events, but more often than not the opportunity to taste those delectable foods from our youth are fewer and far between. That is until now.
The Columbia, South Carolina First Responders Remembrance Memorial located at 1101 Lincoln Street is dedicated to all SC Midlands firefighters, law enforcement, ems, and branches of the military who have lost their lives in the line of duty since 9/11.
The memorial is constructed of two granite towers as well as two beams from tower the World Trade Center, remembering September 11, 2001.
Located adjacent to the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center, the memorial is located within walking distance of the South Carolina State House and other area attractions. It’s a must-see on your trip to Columbia.
