This Saturday, April 13th kicks off the 2013 Season for the Charleston Farmers Market! Since 1989, the Charleston Farmers Market has supported and featured Lowcountry farmers and growers, artisans, food vendors, live music, and more!
Stop by Marion Square at the corner of King & Calhoun Streets and load up on Lowcountry seasonal produce & more. Admission is free. The Farmers Market is open Saturdays from 8:00am - 2:00pm and runs April 13-December 21, 2013.
*Open on select Sundays from 9:00am - 3:00pm during Piccolo Spoleto Festival (May 26, June 2 & 9) and Holiday Magic (December 1, 8 & 15).
During the early morning hours of Tuesday, April 2nd, a devastating fire struck the building and businesses of 213 East Bay Street. The fire destroyed Charleston favorites The Brick, Squeeze, Speakeasy, & Club Light. As a result, the employees of these establishments now find themselves out of work. So, like any good Charlestonian would do, we're going to raise some money for them to help them get through these difficult time.
On Wednesday, April 17th from 5pm to midnight, The Alley is opening up its doors for the 213 East Bay Fire Fundraiser and a night of live music fun.
3 Bands playing live tunes: Caxton Beaty, Return of the Mac & The Louie D Project.
Guest bartenders from The Brick, Squeeze, Speakeasy, and Light will bartend the party, working hard for your tips (100% donated to East Bay Fire Fund).
A portion of all food and beverage sales will be donated to the Fire Fund.
4 free lanes of free bowling for employees/owners/close friends of the 213 businesses.
4 regular lanes open, with half of proceeds being donated to the fund (please e-mail Boomer@thebecketagency.com if your company would like to sponsor a lane with a cash donation).
$12 buckets of Bud Light for your drinking pleasure
