It might be Oscar night, but if Charleston social media is to be believed, the Holy City laid out the red carpet to ‘James Bond’ actor Daniel Craig and his wife, actress Rachel Weisz (‘Oz the Great and Powerful’) this weekend.

What proof is there? Good question. We should always be suspicious of what we read on social media – like that time people actually drove all the way to Rita’s on Folly Beach because a couple of women reported seeing Channing Tatum there (Hint: It wasn’t Channing Tatum).

And there was that time a local tour company pretended it was Justin Bieber.

The main source of the Daniel Craig report appears to be staff at The Macintosh, including restaurantuer Steve Palmer. Though I’ve since found posts on Facebook indicating they ate at Halls Chophouse Saturday night and also Muse today.

Someone even posted his Macintosh receipt on Instagram and Twitter but as so far no actual pics of Craig, who turns 46 today, unless you think this is them. If it is we hope he enjoyed his omelet and Charleston as a whole without too much fanfare.

Anyway, see the progression of events below on the Storify story.

  1. They definitely were in town. My husband spotted Rachel first, as she wasn’t wearing a hat to cover her face lol. Then he made the connection that obviously the man she was walking with HAD to be her husband, Daniel Craig! I also basically looked Daniel right in the face when we passed them again to make sure it was him and I’m quite confident it was. I was surprised to see him with long hair though, so don’t let the long hair fool you, the picture above is most likely them. That is definitely the style hat he was wearing Sat night when we spotted them also. FYI: We spotted them on King St around 9pm Sat. Craaaazy stuff!!

  3. Yes, they were definitely in town. Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz dropped in at the annual Sierra Club Oyster Roast on Bowen’s Island between 4 pm and 5:30 pm on Sunday. He gave us a nice donation, thanked us for a good time, and said he liked the music. Some folks recognized them and others did not. We talked to them but didn’t take photos or ask for autographs and just basically gave them some space to enjoy the Low Country atmosphere. They were dressed like you see in the photo from Andy Paras and Daniel looked more gray haired than blond, wore a flat hat like the one in the photo, and they both had on mufflers. I sold them tickets and said I enjoyed his movies to which Rachel replied that she thought they had almost sneaked in without being recognized.
