On Sunday, February 5th, The Hippodrome is hosting the biggest game of the year on the biggest screen in Charleston! Bring your buddies and girlfriends to enjoy cold beer, hot food, frat-house festivities and the BIG game as you’ve never seen it! Kick back in the premium, leather seating or wander the building with the game on in every room and take part in beer pong, foosball, and corn hole tournaments to win prizes. Tailgating tickets are available for select guests to start “game day” an hour before everyone else at 3:00 pm, and doors open to the general public for the official pregame party at 4:00 pm. Food and drinks will be on sale all night and prizes may be won through games and raffles throughout the event. Leave the remote on the couch and come to your home by the Charleston Harbor to experience the big game in a BIG way!

Cradled in a nook of the Charleston harbor, The Hippodrome provides majestic, off-peninsula views with the convenience of a downtown location. Large, contemporary windows bathe two stories of gathering space in natural light, while the 150-year-old brick exposures offer a warm reminder of the building’s rich history as a Charleston Institution. An impressive theater housing the largest screen in Charleston, The Hippodrome now hosts celebrations including performing arts events, parties, business meetings, receptions, and other occasions.

WHEN: Sunday, February 5th with doors open to the general public at 4 pm. Kick-off is at 6:30 pm.

WHERE:
The Hippodrome
360 Concord Street Suite 100

Entropy Arts & American College of Building Arts are proud to present JAIL BREAK 2 on Saturday, November 12th from noon-11pm at the Old City Jail at 21 Magazine St in downtown Charleston. An all encompassing arts festival established to provide an outlet for local artists to present their work, JAIL BREAK 2 will be held at one of the most unique venues in downtown Charleston where the jail will be converted into a gallery, displaying works by local visual artists and students from the ACBA as well as music and dance instillations from Dancefx Charleston and Annex Dance Company. Additionally, interactive festivities such as live painting, arts and crafts, demonstrations of various building arts by ACBA students and artisan booths will be outside in the main yard of the former jail.

“I started Entropy Arts to focus on presenting innovative performing arts events that showcase collaboration between artists of different mediums including music, dance, visual art, writing, filmmaking and more,” stated festival organizer Andrew Walker. “It was a natural step to host an arts festival where diverse artists and audiences could come together to celebrate the arts.
