Hurry and get your hands on Savannah Bee Company's limited edition, special release of Gold Reserve Tupelo Honey. What makes it so special? Beekeeper Ted says this honey tastes just like the blossom. Never before has he seen the taste of the Tupelo carry through once the honey was extracted.
This honey was made on the Altamaha River about an hour from Savannah. A beautiful place with ancient Tupelo trees growing along the water’s edge with buttressed trunks and medusa-like limbs rising up into the sky. Only 2,250 of these bottles were made. Each bottle is hand signed by Ted, numbered 1 to 2250 and includes a handprinted 1936 Letter Press label. The honey also includes a hand-crafted Cherrywood spoon capable of reaching the very bottom of your bottle so you can enjoy every drop.

The way the Charleston community united in love and faith over the recent tragedy is remarkable. Evil visited Charleston and shattered lives, but we remain Charleston strong. Our leaders led with wisdom, professionalism, heart and soul. I am humbled by the families and the heroes, honored to be part of this community. Seems awkward to go back to talking about cheery King Street news under that considerable shadow, but we go on, albeit changed forever. Love and prayers all who were so deeply wounded by the act of hate and racism.
Maestro Matteo Fedeli, violin virtuoso, held two concerts at the Charleston Library Society last month accompanied by Andrea Carcano. Connecting dots, 2nd Sunday on King Street brings many area residents downtown. They love it and sign up for news about other special events. Because of that reach, people who had never seen or heard a Stradivarius violin, never been inside the Library Society, never experienced the Sylvan Gallery or Reinert Fine Art Gallery—each one held pre-concert receptions—got a magic memory. Mission accomplished.
Both concerts led me to explore and admire the Charleston Library Society. It’s as beautiful inside as it it outside. There are stacks, of course, with titles ranging from historic books to newer ones. You can check out a movie just like at the public library. There are historic documents to view as well, and comfortable chairs for lingering. The main space, which is basically a big rectangular box, has wonderful acoustics for performances, and a fine Steinway piano, perpetually in tune. World renowned pianist Andrea Carcano took full advantage of the instrument with a solo performance midway through both Fedeli concerts, summoning the first of many standing ovations.
