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
Charleston, SC 29401

ADMISSION: This event is FREE to attend. Admission for tailgating tickets is at 3 pm.

Mac’n At The ‘Drome – A Concert Film Experience Benefiting Mac Leaphart

On January 28, both local and national musicians will be sitting in for beloved singer and songwriter, Mac Leaphart, and performing his songs at The Hippodrome. Benefiting a man who has successfully made a career out of connecting with people through his music, proceeds will go to Mac in his ongoing recovery from a serious car accident and recent surgery to remove a brain tumor. A unique experience of camaraderie and good will, performances of Mac’s music will be set against a visual narration on the theatre’s IMAX screen and give life to Mac’s story and his significant impact on those around him.

The concert features collaborative performances by Mark Bryan (Hootie and The Blowfish), Danielle Howle, Five Way Friday, John Wesley Satterfield, Joal Rush, Doug Jones (Craven Melon), Luke Cunningham, Greg Payne (The Piedmont Boys), Ryan Bonner, Jamie Resch with Shovels & Rope, Donnie Blackwell and more very special surprise guests. Reid Stone and Guilt Ridden Troubadour featuring members of Mac Leaphart’s current band, Mac Leaphart and My Ragged Company, will act as house band and musical conductors for the night’s celebration.

As doors open at 6:30 pm, acoustic music by Jim Marshall (Junkyard Angel) and a silent auction will start in the lobbies. Food concessions provided by Home Team BBQ and a full bar will run throughout the night. The concert begins at 8 p.m. in the theatre and will last until 10 pm followed by more live music by Five Way Friday and John Totaro’s Classic Woodies until 12 a.m. or later. Garage parking is available as well as free parking in the open lot adjacent to the venue. Advance tickets are $17 and may be purchased online at  www.charlestonhippodrome.com. Day of show tickets are $20.

Mac Leaphart is a singer/songwriter who plays a blend of country, rhythm and blues. The Charleston City Paper describes Mac as “a rowdy set, which seems to meld Gram Parsons with the ‘Sticky Fingers’ era Rolling Stones”. Since his arrival in Charleston in 2007, Leaphart has been performing over 250 shows a year, solo and with his band, Mac Leaphart and My Ragged Company. Give Mac a listen and see why Skope Magazine says, “This guy may just single handedly save country music.”
