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.
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.
