Now that Labor Day has passed, it’s a great time to be in a beach house Charleston.  Rates are lower, crowds are thinner, you have more choice in luxury beach house rentals, plus, CRW is here.  More about that in a minute.

First up, a follow-up to that last post about donations for victims of Hurricane Harvey.  I dropped off some supplies yesterday, and the big rig is HUGE!  There’s plenty of room for more.  They’ll be accepting donations Monday (Labor Day) from 9-4:00, Tues.- Thurs. 8-6:00, then on Friday the truck will be heading to the Salvation Army in Houston.  It’s parked in front of the Exclusive Properties office at 1116 Palm Blvd, IOP… just look for the giant “Harvey Donations” sign.

In addition to that last list, they also really need: brand new underwear (for men, women, or children), cleaning supplies, bleach, rubber gloves, garbage bags.

Mel, co-owner of Exclusive Properties, had this to say Monday afternoon, after a particularly generous donation:  “Sandy thank you so much for the generators and cleaning supplies ! We have a contact in Houston and they need all these items – Canned goods, non perishable food, rice, beans, rubber gloves, bleach , new underwear and T-shirts. Try not to bring sweaters and long sleeve shirts, long pants – they need clothes they can wear now in the 95 degree heat index. Great turnout today but we still have lots of room in the trailer.”

Thank you so much in advance.  The need is overwhelming and real.  Help us show Texas a little Lowcountry love!

 

CRW is here again near your beach house Charleston

One of the most popular culinary events is popping up again, and area restaurants are sure to be buzzing with activity.  It’s Charleston Restaurant Week, and it’s kicking off once again tomorrow   –  Wednesday, September 6th   –  and running through Sunday, September 17th.

Sponsored by the Greater Charleston Restaurant Association, it’s become a hugely  popular event that takes place twice a year.  CRW has proven to be a big hit with locals and visitors alike.

This year, a slew of restaurants are offering an abundance of choices guaranteed to please any palate.

If you are here in a beach house Charleston, whether it’s one of our Isle of Palms luxury rentals or Folly Beach rentals Charleston, chances are you are going to go out to eat.  You’ve gotta feed the folks in your Charleston beach house, and you might as well let someone else do it.  Restaurant Week is a great way to sample some of the best the town has to offer, at prices better than ordering a la carte.

This event just gets bigger and better each time it rolls around.  Charleston restaurants showing up on all sorts of prominent best-in-the-country lists doesn’t hurt, as local chefs are getting the rep of rock stars.  Charleston’s culinary scene is one of the main draws for folks coming to our rental homes South Carolina, be they Isle of Palms vacation rentals or Folly Beach house rentals Charleston SC.  Lowcountry food is hot, and Charleston Restaurant Week is, too.

They’ve tweaked it a bit since years past.  Instead of having three tiers of pricing ($20, $30, $40 per person for three courses), restaurants are encouraged to come up with their own specially priced event menus.  It looks to be a benefit to diners, adding more flexibility as restaurants respond to what people enjoy or have asked for in the past.  Some restaurants are opting for a special drink as opposed to a third-course dessert or first-course appetizer, for example.

Also, they have an official free smartphone app available.   It even includes a tip calculator and a parking assistant.  Just search for FREE GCRA or Greater Charleston Restaurant Association in your app store.

They list participating restaurants by lunch/brunch or dinner, and by location, which makes it easy to pick a place most convenient to your luxury house on Isle of Palms or Folly Beach house Charleston.  Here’s a breakdown:
