12th Annual Blues by the Sea Review

The azaleas were blooming large on the Green at Freshfield’s Village for the 12th Annual Blues by the Sea event held on Sunday. Although temperatures had dropped to a chilly upper 50’s to lower 60’s, hundreds of people showed up with chairs, coolers, and lots of blankets to enjoy an afternoon of high energy music from bands visiting from around the United States. The Wine Bar was on the patio serving beer and wine from their newly renovated store. As the day progressed, people began dancing. Children spun around with glee as adoring parents looked on, and lovers moved rhythmically to the delight of all.

The first band, led by Randy McAllister, is no stranger to the area. He and his band have played at Freshfield’s many times, and most of the band is from South Carolina. McAllister’s hardcore jams with a stellar cast of talented musicians were the favorite of the day. As his set moved on, he literally wandered through the crowds singing, as the band quietly toned down as back up, in his bare feet. His deeply soulful chorus touched everyone as he passed by. It was an ethereal experience, and not one we usually see at Freshfield’s. Once he reached back to the stage, the crowd went wild as the band ramped back up and played a few more songs to round out the set.

The next band featured Mac Arnold, a rhythm and blues classic musician who has been around for decades. He was joined by A Plate Full of Blues for a soulful collection of catchy riffs and relatable songs that captured everyone’s attention. Mac’s voice commanded our attention, and people responded immensely with dance, clapping to the beats, and laughing as he cracked jokes onstage.

Mississippi Heat rounded out the day with a raucous set of blues that warmed our hearts. By this time, it was quite cold, and many people started heading out for dinner. However, the fans that stayed for the final set received what was definitely saved as the best for last.

Gary Erwin, a local musician and talent buyer, has been instrumental in creating this successful round of music at this location and can be found playing with his band, Shrimp City Slim, all around Charleston. If you are interested in listening to more blues, check out their performances at the Mills House every Sunday from 11-2pm and on Wednesdays from 5-8pm. One can never get enough of the blues!

7 Essential Tips for your Next Family Trip

1. Be Flexible
It may be tempting to head out on vacation during holidays, but you will save big if you plan your trip around them. By taking advantage of these less popular times, you could be saving hundreds on your trip from hotels to airfare.
Aside from huge savings, you are also more likely to enjoy yourself more because you won’t be fighting traffic, crowds, and other people for parking.

You can check the calendars of many rental properties right on their page to see when their costs go down.


2. Set a Budget
You don’t have to break the bank to go on vacation with your family. Before you even leave set limits on what you want to spend on everything from lodging to souvenirs but make sure to leave room for spontaneous activities too.

Pick what you want to splurge on carefully. Is there a huge concert going on? Are there any renowned restaurants in the area? It is ok to blow your budget from time to time to make sure that you are experiencing the best things the area has to offer.  

3. Road Trips
Road tripping can be challenging, but it can also save a lot of money and create lasting memories. There are plenty of things you can do to make road trips more enjoyable for your whole family. Make sure that you take breaks often. No one likes being stuck in one place for a very long time. Budget in time to stop, stretch your legs, or just run off some energy.

Portable DVD players can be a lifesaver on long road trips. You can get one relatively cheaply or borrow one from a friend. It will give your kids a welcome distraction to take their minds off of the long trip ahead of you.

If you do choose to drive, always make sure that your car has been completely inspected by a mechanic before hand. Have them check any service lights that have been on, change your oil (if needed), and check your brakes. The most important part is arriving safely.

4. Pack Light
Only bring the things that you have to have. It can be tempting to load up half of all your belongings just in case you might need them, but that just leads to more things that you have to keep track of and carry around. Make a detailed packing list and stick to it.

You can also cut down on the amount of things that you bring for your kids by calling restaurants and hotels ahead of time to see if they provide essentials like cribs and high chairs.

5. Bring Toys and Games
Toys and games are an important thing to make space for when packing. Kids can get bored very quickly so having some of their favorite toys with them can entertain them for a while. Let the kids pack their own toys into a bag that they are responsible for carrying. This will give them some responsibility and insure that their favorite toys get packed.

Double check their bags to make sure that the toys that they picked out will make it through customs if you chose to fly. Toys with water or liquid should be avoided as well as toys like Play-Doh which is considered a potential explosive by the TSA.


6. Kitchen

Having a kitchen in your hotel room or rental can be a lifesaver. It can also save you a lot of money on snacks and small meals.

If you have younger kids you know how their schedules can be. Often times they are up early in the morning and need some downtime in the afternoons. Kitchens make early morning breakfasts and quick lunches easy to whip together.

7. Beach Hack

No one likes having sand all over everything or all in their car. You can avoid this by bringing along a bottle of baby powder the next time you are at the beach. Sprinkle some on your legs, feet, and anywhere that is covered in sand and it will fall right off! No more mess.


5 Things to Know about Seabrook Island

Pristine beaches, laid back yet well kept atmosphere near Charleston and untouched golf courses make Seabrook island one of the top destinations on the East Coast. Check out our list of 5 things you may not have  known about Seabrook and start planning your visit today!

1. Dolphins often frequent the shorelines and along the coast of Seabrook island during strand feeding season. What is strand feeding? Between the months of April and November dolphins communicate by whistling to each other as they round up fish towards the shoreline. Some have witnessed these adorable creatures near the coast while on vacation! Although, we wish it happened more often.

2. When you think of places like Charleston and Hilton Head you often think of large, live oak trees. Seabrook Island has an abundance of these trees dating back more than 300 years. You can see these trees along bike paths as well as beautifully weaving throughout the island in untouched locations.

3. Anyone who has ever been to or heard of Seabrook thinks of the Golf Courses on the island when you say the name. What many do not know is that the golf courses are preserved by the Audubon Society, who protects wildlife along the golf communities in the area. These stunning golf courses have it all, along with nature that we would not change.

4. During your visit to Seabrook Island, you might catch some locals assessing the beach, but they aren’t looking for seashells. They are looking for turtles. There are more than 150 volunteers in Seabrook Island who work as a turtle patrol. They look for and protect nests of loggerhead turtles. Adult loggerheads come back to the same beach that they hatched in during nesting season so they can lay upwards of 450 eggs in one visit. This may seem like a lot, but the eggs are vulnerable to natural predators and rising tides. In order to keep these threatened species safe, volunteers search beaches beginning in May until October to document and oversee the nests, build barriers for protecting against animals of prey, record hatchlings, and move nests that are endangered.  

5. Seabrook Island’s history dates back to before Colonial times: during the Revolutionary War it was a place of conflict and has ties to a man notorious for his pirate dealings. The town’s namesake was the lineage of Robert Seabrook, descendent of William Seabrook, who, in 1816, bought the island. With the expansion of the port city, it grew to be a favored target of the pirates. Robert Seabrook, a politician and businessman, had been condemned for trading with these pirates. Seabrook Island possess a past of being a wild community. Regardless of its illustrious history, it wasn’t formally established until 1987, making it younger than thirty years.

Take some time for yourself and hit the links courses on Seabrook for an afternoon of golf, or go to the tennis center for a quick match with friends. Staying active is an important part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle during the holidays. If you are an equestrian, find your favorite horse in the stables and head out for a late afternoon ride on the beach. The gym is also available for maintaining a strong core with regular workouts as well. Finally, enjoy a nice simple walk on the beach and try to catch sight of dolphins as they strand feed. It’s an amazing thing to see!

Charlestonians are familiar with the Tattooed Moose, locally owned and run by the same group that owns the Voodoo Tiki Bar in West Ashley, with Moose locations both downtown and a newly opened restaurant on Johns Island. Chef Jason Houser, co-owner and meat curator of the popular local chain, wanted to bring a great Burgers-N-Beer joint to the locals on Johns Island.

A Charleston favorite, located on John’s island, people travel from all over just to eat at JB’s.

Our favorite is the fried chicken which has just the right amount of crisp and is juicy on the inside.

Other southern favorites at JB’s Smokeshack include: fried okra, baked beans and collard greens.
