Water in the boat is the ruin of the boat, but water underneath is its support. -- Rumi
Philosopher Rumi clearly knew a thing or two about boats but the folks behind the North American Safe Boating Campaign know even more. 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.
Life Out Loud supports the efforts of the North American Safe Boating Campaign and recommends adherence to the National Safe Boating Week protocol every day of the year. 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..

If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world. -- J. R. R. Tolkien
One thing is certain, Williams Sonoma must have understood what Tolkien meant at their Chefs' Collective Pop-Up held recently on King Street in Charleston. The event which happened during the 2017 Charleston Wine and Food Festival did not disappoint anyone in attendance. What do you get when you add a DJ to a retail space and mix it with chefs, bartenders, and guests? A party and we're glad they did. Cheers!
We love a good party especially in a retail store. When's the last time you partied somewhere unexpected?
Tell us! We'd love to hear your adventures.

The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper. -- William Butler Yeats
Kellar O'Neil, aka "The Southern Charmer" and "Mystifier of the Finest Affairs", is a magician and storyteller who has perfected the art of illusion with a devilish grin. Recently, he invited us to check out his show at The Palmetto Crescent Parlour, and we were delighted to take him up on the offer. Tucked away in a corner of Charleston, he performs in an intimate setting thus ensuring audience engagement. Our pictures offer a glimpse of the evening, and what one can expect from a magical night on the town.
Folks looking for a fun evening out should consider The Palmetto Crescent Parlour. This family-friendly show (minimum age 10) is unlike anything else in Charleston. Each performance lasts 75 minutes with a reception of light snacks and non-alcoholic beverages beginning 15 minutes prior. Group packages and private events are available.
Purchase tickets online or by calling 855-285-6463. Limited seating; advance tickets recomended.
