Charleston Mac Off

Posted in Sales & Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 24, 2014 by Lowcountry Boil

178The 5th Annual Charleston MAC-OFF is scheduled for October 25, 2014 from 2pm to 7pm at the Grove at Patriots Point in Mount Pleasant. Last year, over 4,000 people gathered to sample traditional and gourmet offerings of Mac & Cheese and award bragging rights to The Best Mac & Cheese in Charleston.

No other food combines love, comfort, and Southern roots like Mac and Cheese. This melt in youth mouth mainstay is a classic that is served as a side dish, a pasta entre, a casserole, fried appetizer or even dessert on many Charleston menus. So we have created an event that gives tribute to our love of this versatile cheesy dish and we are seeking to crown the best of the best.

The MAC-OFF gives Charlestonians the chance to get out and enjoy the crisp weather with great comfort food, music, beer and wine, and other activities. This annual event promotes and supports local restaurants, Southern food culture, the local economy and our nonprofit partner, Lowcountry Local First.

This year enjoy music by Jared Blake from The Voice and Adalya, a cooking demo by Southern Season and a crowd of local businesses and vendors.

Three Prizes Awarded: Best Mac & Cheese Critics Choice, Best Mac & Cheese People’s Choice & Best Local Ingredients Critics Choice.

General Admission $10 (plus online processing fee of $2.95)

Food, drink and Mac & Cheese tasting tickets are $1 (There is an opportunity to buy these online in savings bundles).

Suzy McGrane was a local photographer who was diagnosed with breast cancer and ultimately lost her battle in her early twenties. What started as Save Our Suzy is now known as Share Our Suzy. The goal of SOS is to bridge the financial gap and allow breast cancer patients to focus solely on recovery and not the financial stress brought on during this very difficult battle. Funds raised cover the critical areas that insurance companies do not by providing assistance to those with every day needs such as wigs, prosthetics, childcare, gas cards, utility bill assistance, medication assistance and more. Share Our Suzy’s mission is to raise money and resources to assist and support breast cancer patients in South Carolina from diagnosis to remission.

One of the originators of the jam band movement, Indecision‘s innovative music is a unique blend of rock, jazz, blues and extended jams complete with rich and complex lyrics. Indecision has shared the stage with musicians such as Widespread Panic, Phish, Blues Traveler, Dave Matthews Band, Jorma Kaukonen, Hootie and the Blowfish, The Neville Brothers, The Connells, Jupiter Coyote and more.

Not all Southern rockers fit into an expected mold and that is exactly the case for the rhythm and blues five-piece, Gaslight Street. By incorporating Southern music traditions with their own life experiences, these long time friends have shown that Southern rock still has a place in the American music pantheon. Gaslight’s hard rock edge and fast guitar leads keep their loyal core of music loving fans thirsting for more.
