Upper King St
A day without bottle service is no holiday. Thankfully you won’t have to know that feeling since Republic opens at 4pm.
Westside/Upper King St
No need to go without a PBR for one day. Wax up those ‘staches boys, and pull up those knee socks girls, and both of you hipsters make sure and wear some fingerless gloves -- it’s cold out there. Opens as usual at 4 pm.
It’s not a speakeasy but booze is a flowin’ and the times are good in Downtown Summerville. Spin the wheel for prizes (Thrillist does not promise prizes are in any way good, but hey, prizes!). The fun starts at noon.
All locations besides Kiawah
Ham leftovers? You don’t need no stinkin’ ham leftovers when there’s wings, beer, flat-screen TVs, and crispy French fries starting at 5 pm.
If watching all those parades while listening to the details of Uncle Gene’s gallbladder procedure has made you antsy, work off some steam with a game of ping-pong or pool with a pint at this neighborhood joint. This place is not sure exactly when in the afternoon it's opening, but it will be open, so call for specifics.
