There can not be good living where there is not good drinking. -- Benjamin Franklin
sBenjamin 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 its 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.

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.
