Puppy Bowl this weekend

The next couple of weekends have gone to the dogs, with Puppy Bowl and the IOP’s annual Doggie Day at the Rec.

This Sunday, February 2nd is Super Bowl LIV, when the San Francisco 49ers will take on the Kansas City Chiefs in Miami.

Animal lovers probably already know about one of the greatest programming moves of all time  –  Puppy Bowl.  16 years ago Animal Planet came up with the concept, pitting two teams of adorable rescue puppies (Team Fluff and Team Ruff) against each other on the Astroturf gridiron.  Basically, the puppies romp around and play.  Refs call penalties when needed to keep the peace.  Then when one pup grabs a toy and manages to cross the goal line, pandemonium ensues.  Cheerleaders, which have included hedgehogs, penguins, silkie chickens and pot-bellied pigs, go wild.  It’s adorable.

They’ve since added a Kitten Bowl as well.  All of the puppies and kittens are available for adoption.  Since its inception, 100% of the “players” have been adopted into loving homes.

Puppy Bowl XVI airs this Sunday at 3:00 p.m. ET on Animal Planet. You can see the awesome starting lineup here.


Check out our own local Puppy Bowl!


Joining in the fun, Charleston Animal Society is sponsoring our own Puppy Bowl.  It’s the 3rd annual Pup Bowl, happening tomorrow  –  Saturday, February 1st  – at Mount Pleasant Towne Centre.  Adoptable puppies and dogs will romp around the gridiron  –  the San Francisco Puppy-Niners versus the Kansas City Canines.  One quarter of the game will feature “The Legends”  –  adoptable dogs over one year old, who will have their own special parade.  Get set for:


Doggie Day at the Rec


Then, next Saturday February 8th is Doggie Day at the Rec.  It’s the annual Isle of Palms gathering of all things canine, going on from from 9:00 a.m. till noon.  All are welcome.

They’ll have plenty of health and wellness resources for your dog, with loads of exhibitors, vendors and rescue groups.  There will be a vaccination and microchip clinic, free pet photos, IOP dog license sales, Canine Good Citizenship Test, and adoptable dogs on site.  It’s a popular IOP event that even won an Achievement Award from the Municipal Association of South Carolina.

Also, you might want to enter your awesome pup in the dog show competition.  There will be prizes.  Here are the categories: Cutest Puppy (under one year), Most Attractive (over one year), Best Female Rescue, Best Male Rescue.  Download the registration form here.

Read all the details at the City’s website.  It takes place at the Isle of Palms Rec Center.  It’s located in the middle of the island at #24  28th Avenue.

By the way, a number of our Isle of Palms luxury rentals are pet friendly.   Just call us at EP and we’ll help you pick the perfect one for you and your beloved pet.

Why oyster shell recycling is important

You may have never even heard of oyster shell recycling.  But here in South Carolina it’s a thing.  A big thing.  In fact, South Carolina’s DNR   –  Department of Natural Resources  –  is counting on you to do so.

But more about that in a minute.

If you’ve spent much time here, you probably know how much the Lowcountry loves its oysters.  They are a huge part of our local culture and a centerpiece of the classic South Carolina coastal party, the oyster roast.  As I covered in that last blog, the world’s largest oyster roast just took place this past weekend at Boone Hall Plantation.  There, at the Lowcountry Oyster Festival, they served 80,000 pounds of them.

Oysters are also a crucial part of the coastal ecosystem.  Check out these fascinating ways oysters help local waters…

Estuarine Filters: Adult oysters filter up to 2.5 gallons of water per hour or up to 50 gallons per day.

Habitat: Oysters build reefs which provide habitat for fish, shrimp, crabs, and other animals. They are an integral part of the marine ecosystem. There are nearly 120 different species that frequent oyster reefs, including; Red Drum, Blue Crabs, Flounder, and Shrimp.

Erosion Control: Oyster reefs are natural breakwaters that absorb wave energy and protect marsh shorelines from erosion.  (Source: SCDNR)


How do oysters grow?


The way oysters grow is an interesting tale of nature and history.

South Carolina used to have a huge oyster industry.  Back in the 1930’s, 16 different canneries lined the coast harvesting, shucking, then shipping oysters to large cities like New York, Chicago and beyond.  The folks doing the harvesting understood the natural process.  Oysters need a cultch, or base, on which to attach and regrow.  It takes about three months for the baby oysters, called spats, to attach.  It then takes two to three years for an oyster to grow to three inches, ready for harvest.  The canneries understood the process.  They knew to return the shells back to the water, so everything came full circle.

The last South Carolina cannery closed in 1986.  It was a result of Asian markets flooding the market with cheaper, inferior canned oysters.  The SC oyster market switched to a more local one.  Whole cluster oysters pretty much stayed here and were consumed and appreciated, in individual back yards and at benefit parties.  Folks around these parts would say this is progress  –   local before local was cool.  Why ship ‘em up north when we can keep there here for us?

The problem was, most of the shells just ended up in the landfill instead of back in the saltwater and tidal creeks where they belong.  Soon it became apparent that oyster beds were disappearing.

So in the 1980’s, the DNR started an oyster bed seeding program.  Then, in 2000, they started an oyster shell recycling program.  Both have grown steadily, just like the oyster beds they are meant to nurture.


How does oyster shell recycling work?


The SCDNR collects oyster shells from participating restaurants, large-scale oyster roast events, and public oyster shell recycling bins.  There are now many drop-off sites for oyster shells in coastal South Carolina counties and beyond.  You can find one right here on the Isle of Palms, behind the restaurant at the Marina.  There’s another one just over the Isle of Palms Connector in Mount Pleasant.  It’s located on Sweetgrass Basket Parkway across from the back entrance to the Six Mile Harris Teeter and Hobby Lobby shopping center.

The DNR recycling team then cures the shells for six months, essentially putting them in quarantine.  This is to make sure the shells are free of disease and any invasive species before putting them back into local waterways.

The team then plants recycled oyster shells along the shoreline, effectively rebuilding the oyster reefs.  New young oysters will attach and grow to them.  The reefs themselves filter water, provide habitat for many species of fish, and nurture the next crop of delicious oysters.

Find out more about oyster shell recycling here.

So if you’re buying fresh oysters by the bushel or hosting an oyster roast, please recycle those shells.  And when you are looking for the best in SC vacation rentals, be sure to call EP.

Lowcountry Oyster Festival this weekend

January does indeed have an “r” in it, so get set for the largest oyster festival in the world.

It’s the 37th annual Lowcountry Oyster Festival, a beloved local event.  It’s happening this Sunday  –  January 26th  –  in Mount Pleasant, just over the Connector from the Isle of Palms.  The Oyster Festival is tapped as one of the top 20 events in the Southeastern United States, according to The Southeastern Tourism Society.

Oysters are a fundamental part of coastal Carolina culture and cuisine.  Oyster roasts are a longstanding Lowcountry social tradition, not to mention a delicious way to spend an afternoon or evening with friends.

Basically, copious amounts of fresh oysters are steamed over hot coals or wood, often covered with wet burlap to generate and trap the steam.  The bivalves are then shoveled onto communal tables.  There you stand side by side with others as you pry them open with an oyster knife (a Lowcountry staple).  Thick gloves also come in handy.  You can savor them straight up, or with cocktail sauce or hot sauce and crackers.  Then, of course, you wash them down with your favorite beverage; beer is often involved.

Well, this weekend is your chance to experience an oyster roast with about 10,000 of your favorite folks at the Lowcountry Oyster Festival.   Red Clay Hot Sauce is a presenting sponsor, so expect to see a lot of that as well.

As an added bonus, it takes place on the scenic grounds of one of the top attractions in the area  –   Boone Hall Plantation.


What to expect at the Lowcountry Oyster Festival


The festival will take place from 10:00 a.m. till 5:00 p.m.  It’s also for a good cause, as proceeds go to worthwhile charities like the Ronald McDonald House of Charleston, MUSC Hollings Cancer Center, Shriners Hospitals for Children, Charleston County School District, Bread & Butter Charleston and the Coastal Conservation Association of South Carolina.

Here’s a link to the festival webpage, where you can buy tickets.  Admission is $17.50 advance, or $25 the day of.  Kids 10 and under get in FREE.  FYI, VIP tickets have already sold out.

You can bring strollers, wagons, folding chairs, oyster knives and gloves into the festival.  You are asked to leave the following at home:  pets, coolers, folding tables, and outside food and beverages.

Boone Hall Plantation is located at 1235 Long Point Road in Mount Pleasant.

So check out the biggest oyster festival on the planet.  And remember… just call Exclusive Properties, and we’ll put you in the perfect beach house Charleston.

Spoleto Festival USA 2020

It’s January, which means that tickets for this year’s Spoleto Festival are finally available for purchase.

Spoleto Festival USA is one of the preeminent arts festivals in the country (and arguably the world).  It draws people from all around the globe to Charleston.

This year is the 44th annual installment, and all manner of performance art and art of all kinds will take over the Holy City.  Genres and categories of Spoleto Festival performances abound.  They include opera, musical theater, theater, cabaret, dance, physical theater, music, the Wells Fargo Jazz series, First Citizens Bank Front Row, artist talks, the visual arts and special events.

This year’s Spoleto Festival USA 2020 runs from Friday, May 22nd through Sunday, June 7th.   Tickets officially went on sale Wednesday, January 15th, both through the official festival website and by phone at (843) 579-3100.

It looks to be quite an exciting lineup this year.  Headlining events include the world premiere of Grammy award winner Rhiannon Giddens’ opera, “Omar,”   “Romantics Anonymous,” “Until the Flood,” “Machine de Cirque,” the Scottish Ballet performing “The Crucible,” Ballet Flamenco Sara Baras, “The Planets” performed by the Spoleto Festival USA Orchestra, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, the Steep Canyon Rangers, and much more.

You can see the entire performance schedule on the website.

Or if you’d rather, you can click through a digital version of the printed brochure which they normally snail mail out.

The in-person box office will open at the Gaillard Center, at 95 Calhoun Street, on Friday, May 1st.  But honestly, if you really want tickets, your best bet is to buy them online or by phone as soon as possible.  Many of these productions will sell out fast.


Spoleto Festival venues, plus private garden tours…


Venues are scattered all across the downtown peninsula.  They include such beloved sites as the Dock Street Theatre, Gaillard Center, Gibbes Museum of Art, Sottile Theatre, City Hall, Charleston Library Society, Cistern Yard of the College of Charleston, Woolfe Street Playhouse, and St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church.

And don’t forget the gardens.  A trip to Charleston isn’t complete without touring through some of its famous gardens.  The Charleston Horticultural Society and The Garden Conservancy have teamed up with the Spoleto Festival.  They’re offering self-guided tours of 16 different private gardens on the historic peninsula.

It’s called Behind the Garden Gate, and here is how they describe it:  “Walls of entwined ivy, dazzling blooms, and sun-dappled fern fronds abound in Charleston’s botanical sanctuaries. For the eighth year, Spoleto Festival USA collaborates with the Charleston Horticultural Society and The Garden Conservancy to open the Holy City’s garden gates for self-guided tours. Each Saturday tour features eight different private gardens, promising two full days of exploration and beauty in these artfully cultivated spaces.”

Of course a Charleston beach house makes the perfect home base for a festival experience.   Late May/early June is a very popular time around these parts.  Not only do you have Spoleto and Piccolo going on, but you’re also entering the height of wedding season.  After all, Charleston is one of the top marriage destinations in the country.

So check out the Spoleto schedule and get those tickets while you can.  And when you are searching for the perfect place to stay, be sure to call EP.  Not unlike the Spoleto Festival, our portfolio of luxury beach homes is world-class.

homemade creamer recipes

Tis the season for warm beverages, so here’s a fun and creative twist to make them even better: homemade creamer.

There are so many coffee (or tea) creamers on the market now.  They come in a myriad of flavors, often tweaked for the current holiday.  Of course there’s pumpkin spice, or mocha, peppermint, hazelnut, almond… the list is lengthy.

If you look on the label, the vast majority contain a rather shocking number of ingredients.  Most aren’t natural or particularly good for you.  Since they’re manufactured in faraway locations, then shipped great distances before sitting a while on your local store shelf, they’re bound to have a lot of preservatives, artificial flavors and the like.

Turns out that making your own is not only a healthier alternative, it’s also fun, creative, and can be tweaked to your particular taste.  It’s also cheaper than buying the commercial stuff.

That’s a win-win-win!

Of course homemade creamers can be added to coffee, tea (either black or green), or even hot cocoa to boost its luxuriousness.  You can also add them into smoothies for a creamy flavor boost.

The fine foodie folks at MyRecipes.com recently shared the basics for making your own homemade creamer.  It’s surprisingly fast and easy.  A batch will last a couple weeks in a well-sealed container in your fridge.


The base recipe for your homemade creamer


Base (dairy and sweetened): Mix equal parts of sweetened condensed milk and another dairy option like cream or milk (whole, 2%, skim, half and half, almond or soy milk).  Whisk or shake well to blend.  A standard can of sweetened condensed milk is 14 ounces, which would equate to 1 ¾ cups of milk or cream.

If you’d like to cut sugar/calories and use a sugar substitute, you can easily make your own sweetened condensed milk for the base.   In a saucepan over medium-low heat, whisk two cups of whole milk with ¾ cup of your preferred sugar substitute.  Bring it to a simmer and cook about 30 minutes, stirring often, until it is thickened and reduced by about half.  Remove from the heat.  Stir in four tablespoons of butter, and mix well.  Cool thoroughly, then following the above recipe for the creamer base.


Try these for different popular flavor combos:


French Vanilla  –  Add 2 teaspoons of good quality vanilla extract to the creamer base.

Amaretto  –  Add 2 teaspoons almond extract.

Swiss Almond Mocha  –  Add 2 teaspoons almond extract, 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup, and 2 teaspoons instant coffee.

Almond Joy  –  Add 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup, 1 teaspoon almond extract, 1 teaspoon coconut extract.

Milk Chocolate  –  Add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup.

Dark Chocolate  –  Add 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup and 1 teaspoon cocoa powder.

Peppermint Mocha  –  Add 1 tablespoon chocolate syrup, 1 teaspoon cocoa powder, and 1 teaspoon peppermint extract.

Pumpkin Spice  –  2 tablespoons maple syrup, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, ½ teaspoon cinnamon.

Gingerbread  –  Combine 1 tablespoon maple syrup, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, ½ teaspoon cinnamon, ¼ teaspoon ground ginger, 1/8 teaspoon allspice.

Cinnamon Coffeecake  –  Add 2 teaspoons vanilla extract and 2 teaspoons cinnamon.

Hazelnut  –  Add 2 teaspoons hazelnut extract.

Nutella  –  Add 2 teaspoons hazelnut extract and 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup.

Vanilla Chai  –  Combine 2 tablespoons honey, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and ½ teaspoon cardamom.

Raspberry Chocolate  –  Add 2 tablespoons raspberry syrup and 2 teaspoons cocoa powder.


NOTE: Add more or less of each flavor to taste, going up or down a teaspoon at a time.

General homemade creamer flavoring tips: if you are adding a thin liquid like extract, simply shake well with the creamer base.

If you’re adding thick ingredients like honey or maple syrup, or dry ingredients like spices, try this simple first step to prevent any graininess or separation.   Just heat the flavorings with a little bit of the creamer base in a small saucepan over low heat.  Cook till flavorings are dissolved.  Allow to cool, then shake into the creamer base.

Try a batch of homemade creamer, for the perfect cup to sip overlooking the ocean, on the deck of one of our Isle of Palms vacation rentals.  Just give us a call at EP and we’ll book you in the perfect one.

Charleston Restaurant Week Underway

January means it’s time once again for that popular culinary event, commonly known as Charleston Restaurant Week.

Restaurant weeks have sprung up around the U.S.  Charleston has such a vibrant, world-class restaurant scene.  It’s no wonder that Charleston Restaurant Week is one of the most popular ones in the country.

Charleston Restaurant Week: The January 2020 edition officially kicked off yesterday.  This year’s dates are January 9th through Sunday, January 19th, 2020.  About 100 restaurants are participating this time around.

The event seeks to give folks a chance to try out new places in town, by offering special deals and pricing.  The most common is a prix fixe menu, with three dishes for a set price ($15, $20, $25, $30, $40, etc.)

Most are for dinner, but several have lunch options as well.

Brett Huffstetler, GM of Hank’s Seafood, had this to say:  “It’s a boost for everyone.  It helps the restaurants out in a typically slower period, and it’s a good chance to bring in new guests that might not normally come see us.”

According to Adam Hodgson, 5 Church’s Executive Chef:   “Hospitality is what Charleston is all about.  As far as being able to be hospitable and letting that shine through is what we do as restaurants, and showing our hospitality to folks is really exciting.”


Here are those restaurants taking part in this edition of Charleston Restaurant Week


Downtown Charleston


CRW participants outside of downtown Charleston:


Mount Pleasant

James Island / Folly Beach


Park Circle

West Ashley

Johns Island / Kiawah

Daniel Island

North Charleston


Sullivan’s Island

Isle of Palms / Wild Dunes


Many of the local news outlets cover the event, like Channel 2 and Live 5 News.

Here is the official website, with all participating restaurants, along with price and menu if available.  You can also make a reservation  –  which is HIGHLY recommended, by the way  –  through the website, for those places that accept them.

Restaurants are big business in South Carolina.  According to the South Carolina Restaurant and Lodging Association, last year over 9,600 restaurants in the state brought in more than $10.7 billion in sales receipts.

So check out Charleston Restaurant Week, and enjoy some of the cuisine that the Lowcountry’s known for.  And when you are looking for the perfect Charleston beach house, be sure to call EP.

Charleston Airport Announces Expansion

In a move that is testament to the health of the local economy, Charleston Airport is set to have yet another massive upgrade.

Charleston Airport is already the busiest airport in the state of South Carolina.  It’s set to get even busier, and better.

As I’ve blogged about before, not that long ago, Charleston Airport underwent a major expansion.  The $200 million project resulted in a much-improved design.  New features included a central light-filled atrium, expanded terminal, baggage carousels, security area and locally-based food and shopping options.

As a result, more carriers have arrived, scheduling more flights (many nonstop) servicing Charleston Airport.  Currently nine carriers serve CHS.

In a major move, Charleston Airport  –  officially called “Charleston International Airport,” started offering seasonal nonstop service via British Airways between Charleston and London Heathrow in 2019.  They will repeat service in 2020 as well.


Charleston Airport Flying High


The current airport expansion project will cost a whopping $305 million.  It’s actually comprised of six individual projects which will take place over five years.   These phases include:

Good news for tourism


That’s a whole lot of work that’ll be going on.  It seems like they’re keeping pace with Boeing, whose campus next door to Charleston Airport seems to expand by the minute.

Read more about the airport expansion in the Post & Courier.

This is good news.  It should be easier, and more economical than ever, to fly to one of our Isle of Palms luxury rentalsCall EP and we’ll find you the perfect one.

January deals at Patriot's Point and downtown

If you’re here in Charleston this month, there are a couple January deals that are definitely worth checking out.

Now that the swirl of the holiday season is over, it’s a good time to relax a bit.  Focus more on experiences rather than material things, gifts and returns.

It’s traditionally a time when you can score some good January deals  –  on clearance items in the store, yes, but also on things to see and do.  In fact, the Holy City has a tradition of it, including a couple well known ones.


January deals #1: Pay What You Can Weekend at Patriot’s Point


Patriot’s Point is a Lowcountry treasure.  You can’t miss it  –  it’s “anchored” by the massive aircraft carrier, the USS Yorktown, which is permanently parked in Charleston Harbor.

The Yorktown was one of only two dozen Essex-class aircraft carriers built during World War II.  Also known as the “Fighting Lady,” she earned 11 battle stars while serving in the Pacific from 1943-45.  She was later modernized and went on to earn five battle stars during the Vietnam War, then later served as the recovery craft for the space mission Apollo 8.  She also made her debut on the silver screen in the famous Pearl Harbor movie, “Tora! Tora! Tora!”

Patriot’s Point Naval & Maritime Museum encompasses much more than the Yorktown.

There’s the Cold War submarine Clamagore, the WWII destroyer, Laffey, numerous aircraft, the National Medal of Honor Museum (currently on board the Yorktown), and the very realistic Vietnam Experience, the only Vietnam support base camp in the United States.

When Patriot’s Point opened on January 3, 1976 to an excited crowd of 2,601 people, it was the very first time an aircraft carrier opened as a museum.  It spawned a trend that’s spread to many other cities across the globe.  Over the years, well over 10 million people have visited the Yorktown.

If you are interested in visiting, this is a great weekend to do it.

They’re hosting their annual “Pay What You Can Weekend,” something they only do once a year.  It’s happening this Saturday and Sunday, January 4th and 5th.  They’ll waive normal admission and parking fees ($24 per adult, $5 parking).  Instead you enter for whatever amount you’d like to pay.

Hours are 9:00 a.m. till 6:30 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday  –  and every day.  Military in uniform and children under six are always free.

Here’s their website with more information.


Deal #2:  Museum Mile Month Pass


You’ve probably head of the Miracle Mile, and maybe even the Motor Mile.  Well, the Holy City has the “Museum Mile”  –  a stretch of downtown chocked full of important historical and cultural sights.

According to their official website, “Charleston’s Museum Mile features the richest concentration of cultural sites open to visitors in downtown Charleston. Stroll the one-mile section of Meeting Street and you will discover six museums, five nationally important historic houses, four scenic parks and a Revolutionary War powder magazine, as well as numerous historic houses of worship and public buildings including the Market and City Hall.”  

During the month of January only, they’ve banded together to offer a cool deal.

It’s the Museum Mile Month pass.  For only $25 (adults) or $10 (kids 12 and under), you may visit thirteen of the peninsula’s top draws.

These include:

Here’s a link to buy tickets and information about where to pick them up.

So check out these January deals, and explore some of what makes the historic Lowcountry so special.  And when you are looking for the perfect beach house Charleston, be sure to give EP a call.  We’re also running some super January deals!
