Southern Season Launches Weekly Shopping Trolley

Southern Season is off the path typically beaten by tourists, so the gourmet retailer is launching weekly trolley service to the store.

Starting today, Southern Season is offering a $45 Wednesday package which includes transportation to and from the Charleston or Mt. Pleasant Visitors Center; a demonstration of “regionally-based recipes”; lunch and shopping time.

The trolley leaves Charleston at 9:30 a.m., and returns at 12:30 p.m. It swings by the Mt. Pleasant Visitors Center at 9:45 p.m.

For tickets, visit zerve.com, or call 416-1240 for more information.

Summerville Launches Food Tour by Trolley

Sweet tea is apparently the ideal accompaniment to Greek salad, chili and cupcakes, according to a recent culinary tour itinerary from the City of Summerville.

To promote its newly-designated Sweet Tea Trail, Summerville is hosting a monthly “Good Eats on the Sweet Tea Trail Trolley Tour,” featuring snacks from 10-12 local restaurants. In addition to the items offered on March’s tour, the menu sometimes includes liver pudding, boiled peanuts and shrimp-and-grits. All of the food is served aboard the trolley.

The 90-minute tour, scheduled for the third Friday of each month through August, costs $27. It starts at 10:30 a.m., and is led by Tim Lowry. For more information, visit lowcountrylooptrolley.com.
