Streetscape Celebration and King Street Stroll 

When: Thu., Nov. 12, 4:30-8 p.m. 2009
Phone: (843) 303-1113

It’s not easy being beautiful. Just ask Lower King Street. The historic shopping district, sometimes referred to as the Antique District, has been undergoing streetscaping for months now. Business owners have tried to work through the construction, while many shoppers have just avoided the area altogether. Hopefully, that’s about to change. The renovations are complete, and the City of Charleston, the Charleston Concert Association, and King Street merchants are teaming up to celebrate. Mayor Joe Riley will host a celebratory ceremony at 4:30 p.m., followed by jazz and sangria at the CCA’s new offices at 131 King.

After that, stroll the street, as many shops will be open late — Plum Elements, Joint Venture Estate Jewelers, Berlins, Allison Sprock Fine Art, Alpha Dog Omega Cat, and the Preservation Society Book and Gift Shop are just a few. Dinner and drinks at a nearby restaurant should complete the evening — Fulton Five, Il Cortile Del Re, and 82 Queen are some options. Be sure to keep an eye out for Lower King’s newest businesses in the next few months: a relocated Hampden Clothing, wine bar Bin 152, and Galleons Lost, a pirate-themed gallery. —Erica Jackson
