01. Sparkling + Seafood

Sit underneath sparkly jellyfish lights at the Hook and Barrel bar and enjoy an Emmolo Merlot or a glass of Veuve Cliquot with the crispy fish bites and the savory figs & brie. (No need to choose, just order both.)

02. Wine Gala

Get dressed up for a wine night out, and purchase tickets for the annual Pawleys Island Food & Wine Gala. The event is part of the Pawleys Island Festival of Music & Arts, and it is FABULOUS. (photo via PIFMA)

03. Crafts + Craft Beer

Head to Brookgreen Gardens for the Harvest Home Festival – it’s fun for the whole family – pumpkin decorating, hay rides, scarecrow stuffing, and hay piles for the kids, and craft beer + good food for the adults.

4. Wine Dinner

Make a reservation for one of Ruth’s Chris Tastemaker wine dinners, which features fine wines paired with chef-prepared courses.

5. Rodney Strong + Raccoons

Order a bottle of Rodney Strong Symmetry and sit on the back deck next to the fire at Joe’s Bar and Grill and watch the raccoon run for entertainment. (fact: more glasses of wine, more entertaining raccoons become.)

6. Shrimp Festival

Brew at the Zoo at Brookgreen is always a blast beer tastings, food trucks, live music, and silent auction.

8. Gordon Biersch Seasonal Menu

Head to Gordon Biersch for their seasonal Oktoberfest beer and menu selection which never disappoints. Pretzels with special beer mustards, red cabbage, spaetzel, pork chops… it’s worth the drive to Market Common in October.
