The effects of Hurricane Florence are still being felt throughout South Carolina, and our neighbors to the north can use all the help they can get. That's why, as part of their monthly fundraising evening, local Famulari's Pizza locations are raising money for Americares, a nonprofit focused on medicine and health, this Wed. Sept. 26 from 4 p.m. to close.

It's easy to help — just order delivery from one of Fam's four participating locations in West Ashley, Summerville (Oak Brook and Azalea Square), and James Island. A portion of proceeds from these orders will be donated to Americares.

Famulari's hosts this fundraising evening on the third Wednesday of every month, with a new nonprofit supported every month. Learn more about this month's nonprofit, Americares, and how it provides emergency medical supplies and other basic resources to first responders and others, online

Container Bar soft opens Wednesday with Roti Rolls, Dashi, and other food trucks

The bar formerly known as Food Truck-O-Rama

  • The Container Bar in all her glory.
Container Bar Charleston — originally called Food Truck-O-Rama — opens its doors today for a soft opening starting at 11 a.m. at 2130 Mt. Pleasant St. The food truck hub has been over three years in the making, and today you can check out all that hard work by chowing down on food from a few local food trucks. For lunch: Lola's Lumpia, Samir'a Gyros, and Blackenese hibachi. For dinner: Cast Iron, Dashi, Chicken Fats, Roti Rolls, and Squeals on Wheels.

Yesterday Rutledge Cab Co. announced the soft opening and said they don't quite have their liquor license — although that may have changed before 11 a.m. today, so don't rule booze out quite yet. From the dudes behind Rutledge Cab Co. — Brad Creger, Mike Veeck, and Bill Murray — Container Bar offers electricity to food trucks to "plug in." There'll be a bar, obviously, and seating for diners. When we chatted with Creger back in 2017 he said, "It's about time Charleston had something like this." Indeed.

Stay up to date with visiting food trucks at Container Bar on their Facebook page.

Eat, drink, and help Hurricane Florence victims

"Living in Charleston we know firsthand what it's like to rebuild after a devastating storm"

Posted by Mary Scott Hardaway on Tue, Sep 18, 2018 at 11:10 AM

There are plenty of organizations that are accepting donations for Hurricane Florence victims, and every dollar helps. If you want to get out of the house and help both the local and regional community (the effects of the storm were far-reaching, even if your power never went out), there are some restaurants and foodie events around town that will be donating a portion of their proceeds to Flo Relief:

Queen Street Hospitality restaurants — 82 Queen, Lowcountry Bistro, and Swig & Swine — are donating $1 of every entree sold to relief efforts in North Carolina now through Fri. Sept. 21.

Proceeds will go to Operation BBQ Relief, a disaster relief group that provides meals to displaces residents and emergency personnel during times of natural and other disasters.

"We were extremely fortunate to have been spared by Hurricane Florence, but our neighbors in North Carolina were not so lucky," said Queen Street Hospitality CEO Jonathan Kish in a press release. "Living in Charleston we know firsthand what it's like to rebuild after a devastating storm, and that's why we want to do our part to help those in coastal North Carolina affected by the hurricane."

This Sat. Sept. 22 head to Bohemian Bull for a Sierra Nevada tap takeover. There will be live music, $5 brews, and $1 from each beer sold will go to a TBA hurricane Florence relief foundation.

Keep the giving going next Sat. Sept. 29 at the second annual
Lewis Chile Roast. Lewis will now donate a portion of the event's proceeds to the Chef Jose Andres nonprofit World Central Kitchen, which is currently providing hot meals to residents affected by the storm in North and South Carolina and Virginia.
