    Grits are a trending taste this week and you can get some damn good ones at Wishbone. You really want their classic shrimp and grifts. If you're not a fan of seafood, the cheesy grits are great, too.

    Shrimp and grits were a little on the blander side but what can u expect from grits. The moonshine cocktails are where it's rly at. $6 a pop and plenty of the good stuff to get u going.
