If you’re feeling blue on New Year’s Day (hangover, anyone?) you’ve actually got the right idea. Take yourself down to Folly Beach’s Blu, where you can relax and recuperate with an all-you-can-eat buffet, oysters, and some mellow live music. After you feast on oysters and barbecue, stock up on your good luck for 2013 by chowing down on traditional New Year’s Day foods like hoppin’ john and collard greens. It’s an easygoing way to welcome 2013, says Avocet Hospitality Group’s Stacy Danosky. “It’s a perfect blend [of mellow and upbeat]. We’ll have firepits, which are great to cozy up to, and the live music makes it fun and vibrant.” Plus, there’s the beautiful setting: the event takes place right on the beach, where you can gaze thoughtfully out onto the sea, contemplating what 2013 will bring — in between mouthfuls of oysters, that is.
