It’s still a fairly fresh concept to have a restaurant week in the autumn since this will only be the second year of it, but they’re trying to get people’s attention. So this year they’re having local folks hide awesome hand painted spoons that will garner the finders a Restaurant Week gift certificate, plus you get to keep the cool spoon!

I am one of the hiders for this spoon pictured below, and I hope you know the difference between Cayce and West Columbia, because I’m going to tuck it away in my favorite city.

Follow my Twitter THIS AFTERNOON for the second clue! The #RWSC hashtag will also include other hiders on their expeditions so you can have more than one chance to score a spoon opportunity. If you find the spoon please contact the South Carolina Restaurant and Lodging Association (SCRLA) at 803-765-9000 or visit to claim your prize (not me!). Please also tag me on Twitter or Instagram with the handle @theaprilblake so I can see who snagged it! I will do my best to update on my Twitter feed when the spoon has been claimed.

Restaurant Week Columbia will be held Oct. 12-22, and is hosted by the South Carolina Restaurant and Lodging Association.
