If you’re here in a Charleston beach house, especially one of our Isle of Palms luxury rentals, and you’d like a way to both feed AND entertain your group, consider a foray over to Fiery Ron’s Home Team BBQ on Sullivan’s Island.  Both tonight and tomorrow night, they are having live music by popular groups, and the cover charge is just $5.

Tonight (Friday, July 22) at 10:00 p.m. the Get Right Band from Asheville will be performing, and tomorrow (Saturday, July 23) it’s the Sundogs from Georgia.   Here’s more on who they are:

Home Team has great barbecue and a festive casual vibe and is appropriate for all ages.  They also cater, and they sell BBQ and sides to go to feed everyone in the comfort of your luxury house on Isle of Palms.  Here’s a link to their menu:

Home Team is located at 2209 Middle Street on Sullivan’s Island.  That’s just across Breach Inlet from our Isle of Palms vacation rentals.

And here’s a good shopping tip for any foodies staying in beach rentals Charleston…

One thing about our SC vacation rentals is that many of them have great gourmet kitchens.  If you like to cook and entertain, chances are you like to buy kitchen gadgets.

Sure, there’s Bed Bath and Beyond, or Williams-Sonoma, or you can buy from Amazon or a myriad of online vendors.  But if you’re wanting to shop LOCAL and bring home a useful souvenir from a stay in one of our beach rentals Charleston, you might want to check out The Coastal Cupboard.  It’s a local fave for all things foodie, and the staff is super helpful.

Their tagline is: “The Lowcountry’s Most Complete Kitchen Store!”

I’ve found several quality useful gadgets there over the years  –  high quality cook’s tools and things that I use on a regular basis.  They have a very large selection of items for grilling, for cooking & serving seafood or shellfish, and lovely gift items with a coastal flair.

This weekend they are having their blowout summer sale, with many items discounted 40% to even 60% off.  It’s going on today through Sunday, July 24th.

Here’s a link to their website:

The Coastal Cupboard is located in the Belle Hall Shopping Center at 644-J Long Point Road in Mount Pleasant, an easy drive from all our beach rentals Charleston.   Note: the sale will be held indoors in the air conditioning.

So stay cool, enjoy some music, barbecue, maybe score a good gadget deal, and remember to call Exclusive Properties when you are looking for the best in rental homes South Carolina.  Our beach house rentals Charleston SC are wholesome, all-around fun for all ages.

All best,
