Photos From This Week's Social Scene 

The Charleston scene is finally picking up after a long, hot summer. I recently went to the Mojito Challenge at the Aquarium and sampled drinks made by some of the city’s finest mixologists. Last Monday, the Local Color fashion show at Chai’s to benefit the Charleston firefighters was the place to be. The ladies were very excited to see designs by the likes of Rachel Gordon and Megan Waldrep. Tuesday night, a few friends and I went to Theatre 99 to support some of the newest talent in the world of improv. Of course, Wednesday night was the City Paper’s 10the birthday party at the Windjammer, an event that certainly exceeded my expectations. A slew of great local bands, all the right people, and a great location all combined for a hump-day to remember. On Friday, I stopped by the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art to see The Projectionist. It was interesting and certainly worth the trip. For those of you complaining about how poor you are, here is the umpteenth free event of the summer. Despite being sans facial hair, I wrapped up my week at Madra Rua in Park Circle with the Holy City Beard and Mustache Society’s pub night. CofC’s Pop Culture professor Paul Roof is in charge of the bearded brigade. Of all the events I’ve been to this year, this was certainly one of the most unique. The society’s motto is “Bringing back the ’80s facial hair to Charleston ... the 1880s.” Check ’em out on Myspace if you think you’re up for the challenge.
