Rusty Bull Brewing is doing its part to give back this holiday season, making altruism about as fun as it gets with bowling, booze, and communal frying.

The North Charleston brewery will host a frozen turkey bowling contest tonight starting at 4:30 p.m. Guests who bring in a frozen turkey for donation will receive a complimentary pint of beer. The competition will consist of three frames, two rolls per frame, and prizes will be given to the top three scores at the end of the day.

Those frozen turkeys you so graciously donated? They will be fried up at the Birds-N-Brews Community Turkey Fry taking place Wed. Nov. 22 starting at 10 a.m. onsite at Rusty Bull. NOTE: These are not the same turkeys that were used for bowling, these are untouched frozen birds, don't worry, we checked.

The turkey fry benefits families in need through the North Charleston Dream Center and East Cooper Meals on Wheels. The goal is for volunteers to drink some beer, hang out with friends, and help to fry 100 to 150 turkeys throughout the day. Cigar Lounge will be onsite with cigars available for purchase, and while adults hang out in the back lot, little ones can play on a jump castle set up in the front lot. In addition to your time, Rusty Bull is asking that members of the community donate what they can, be it money, frying oil, fryers, thermometers, propane, disposable metal pans, or turkeys.

Tu restaurant, the second project from Xia Bao Biscuit partners Joey Ryan, Josh Walker, and Duolan Li, will open on Fri. Nov. 24.

If the reputation of XBB isn't enough to get diners in Tu's door, perhaps the new restaurant's curious menu will. The website touts ingredients like cheese ice, dynamite sauce, and hari krishna, not to be confused with the Hare Krishna mantra ... or is it?

Who doesn't want to find out what that's all about?

According to a press release, those unique (and possibly next-level) ingredients are "influenced by a number of different cultures and traditions." Everything will be available a la carte with the menu is divided into "Raw, uncooked foods; Vegetable-focused dishes; and protein-focused Meats."

Partner and Beverage Director Ryan will be pouring Old World terroir wines in addition to classic cocktails and lighter drinks like the Slow Gold, a Cachaça based cocktail with guava liqueur and lime. 

All this will be served up in a single house at 430 Meeting St. Walker and Li designed the 80-seat interior themselves which has two dining rooms for private parties and reservations while a new addition serves as the main dining room, bar, and covered patio.

For reservations, visit Resy.
