Grab your shucker - it's going to be a busy few weeks. First off, Capt. Woody's holds its first oyster roast of the season from 4 to 11 p.m. Saturday (Nov. 4). Palmetto Bay Marina is usually packed for the roasts, so expect a bit of a walk from your parking spot if you're coming late.
Brace yourself for a full weekend of tricks and treats (preferably the latter). Halloween falls on a Sunday, so there's been confusion as to when to hold trick or treat. But even if you're too old to go hunting for candy, there's plenty going on this weekend to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Read on to get the details of what all's happening. And log on and leave a comment if you know of anything else cool/scary going on.
The Bluffton Arts and Seafood Festival goes out with a bang this weekend. Tonight (Oct. 22) is the Bluffton Family Fun night with food, movies and kids games. Saturday is the all day street fest in old town featuring local eateries offering samples and artists displaying their wares. And then they do it all again Sunday. Click here for details.
This is the thick of the fall festival season, so read on for what all's going on.
It may not be as great as peanut butter and jelly, but pumpkin and chocolate has to rank right up there. Hannah gives it a shot in this month's Sugar Buzz. She creates chocolate chip pumpkin bread. It's just the right mix - melted chocolate chips punctuating the fluffy pumpkin bread.
In case you missed it, here's the list of winners from the Kiwanis Chili Cookoff Saturday at Honey Horn.
The fall festival season continues this weekend with the 26th annual Kiwanis Chili Cookoff Saturday (Oct. 9) at Honey Horn.
The basic lineup for the day is something like this: chili, chili, more chili, beer, chili, a band called the Portajohns and chili. Seriously, there's something like two dozen chili vendors for the day.
The Beaufort Shrimp Festival has been a draw north of the Broad for the past 16 years, but this year is extra special. The Lt. Dan Band, featuring Gary Sinise, plays tonight (Oct. 1) at 8:30 p.m. at the Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park.
For this month's Sugar Buzz, Hannah sets out to create the exciting sounding whoopie pie. The whoopie pie isn't all that common in the South, so if you haven't heard of cake-like desert, stay with me because they're certainly worth a try.
The Italian Heritage Festival is new to the island, but they're not holding back for their first ever fest. There's food from more than a dozen vendors (check out their wares here), all sorts of eating contests, a car show, a grape stomp, a wine tasting, food making demonstrations ... basically anything that's Italian will be there.
Seafood, Jazz and Brew has come and gone already. But in case you missed the week's worth of events that ended with the massive Brews on the Harbour Saturday, no worries.
