There can not be good living where there is not good drinking. -- Benjamin Franklin
Benjamin Franklin would be proud. Everything good about living and drinking will be on display in two weeks at BevCon. The two-year old event focused solely on the B side of F&B makes it hotly-anticipated return to Charleston one day after the city's epic eclipse. Which, is, perhaps, an appropriate opener for the best and brightest the beverage world has to offer. If you're over 21, work in the industry, and want to attend, you're in luck. Access Passes remain available and are all-inclusive for the 3-day conference. Please note, tickets to individual events and parties cannot be sold. Sip from the cup that runneth over with liquid knowledge and enlighten yourself at this year's BevCon. You'll be glad you did.
BevCon begins Tuesday, August 22nd and runs through the finale Thursday, August 23rd. The top-shelf event is a virtual Who's Who of those who make it, bottle it, sell it, drink it, mix it, promote it, and write about it. Life Out Loud is proud to be a part of 2017 Official Media.

National Boating Safety Week may have come and gone already but these seven boating safety tips are timeless. Follow them and you will be well on your way to promoting a safe boating experience on the water.

Boating isn't just a pastime in the South Carolina Lowcountry, it's a way of life. Do your part for yourself and others to maintain a safe boating environment for everyone..
