But we're also cultured
But as much as we love to party and day drink, we’re also into highbrow stuff. This means it’ll be way easier to plan more unique dates (dinner and a movie is sooo cliche, right?). Try taking in an improv show at Theatre 99, a concert at the Performing Arts Center, a play at the Dock Street Theatre, or the symphony at the Gaillard Center. The options for arts and culture are plentiful, but don’t worry -- you can still imbibe before or after a classy event.
We have the best live music
Speaking of culture, Charleston claims Shovels & Rope, Darius Rucker, SUSTO, and Jay Clifford as local musicians who’ve made it (in our opinion, at least). Additionally, we’ve got a ton of local bands who play at various bars and venues around town. We’re serious about supporting our local musicians and love to cut a rug. You know what they say about good dancers...
You just can't beat a Southern drawl
Something about a Southern drawl just makes people appear more genteel and hospitable. Southern accents make you think of summer, sunshine, and country music love songs (Tim + Faith 4 eva). We Southerners also have a way of talking so that bad things don’t sound so bad. For example, when we say “bless your heart,” it really means “oh goodness, how can someone be so stupid.” It’s hard to have a lover’s quarrel when the other person sounds so darn sweet, right?
