Charleston Culinary Tours presents a special Taste of the Market on June 19th at 6-8:30pm at the Palmetto Carriage lot on Anson Street by the City Market that celebrates local civil servants, military personnel, hometown heroes and community leaders. For devotion to duty and sacrifice of self, they will receive a discounted admission of $5 (saving $5) and other giveaways with uniform or ID badge. The mission of the Taste of the Market is for City Market area restaurants, the local community, businesses and tourists to come together every third Thursday of the month at a distinct, family friendly event that provides an unlimited sampling of local fare, live music and raffles that occur throughout the event.

Charleston Culinary Tours combine the best of Charleston history, cocktails and food with unique tours that highlight the Lowcountry. Each Charleston Culinary Tour visits several different restaurants, bars or the Farmer’s Market to combine elements of a historical tour with a culinary adventure. On each tour, guests will not only have an opportunity to sample some of the Lowcountry’s finest offerings, but also to meet the owners, chefs and mixologists behind Charleston’s impressive culinary and bar innovations.

The Dirty Dozen Brass Band & the Last Waltz Ensemble Return to the Pour House

Posted in Sales & Events with tags , , , , , , , on April 15, 2014 by Lowcountry Boil

1920266_10152050975589565_1081741604_nThe Dirty Dozen & the Last Waltz Ensemble team up for a special night at the Charleston Pourhouse on Friday, April 18th. Doors open at 8pm with LAST WALTZ kicking it off at 8:45pm, DDBB horns will join the Last Waltz Ensemble followed by a full DDBB show. 

To describe how the Dirty Dozen Brass Band has arrived at its 35th Anniversary, trumpet player Gregory Davis employs a tried-and true New Orleans-centric analogy: “It ends up being like a pot of gumbo – you drop in a little okra, drop in a little shrimp, you drop in some crabs. Before you know it, you’ve mixed in all these different ingredients and you’ve got a beautiful soup. That was our approach to music early on and it still is today.”

Started in Atlanta, The Last Waltz Ensemble is a musical group that progressively plays the music of Bob Dylan and The Band.  The group is an amalgam of the best players in the nation presenting the legendary and timeless music of the super-group, THE BAND, whose influence is still felt in music nearly 30 years after its last performance.

Tickets: $17 advance ticket, $20 day of show
