Recap: The Manual Meetup Charleston, South Carolina

Last Thursday we hosted our third Manual Meetup, this time in historic Charleston, South Carolina. We teamed up with our boys over at WineAwesomeness at their new space in the Cannonborough-Elliotborough neighborhood, which has become the epicenter of cool new restaurants, shops and bars on the tiny peninsula. Butcher & Bee, a favorite uptown spot known for its’ craft sandwiches and use of local ingredients, catered the event and they didn’t disappoint with their heirloom tomato crostini, pimento cheese dips and fresh spring rolls. We also had the brand new brewery, Wooden Skiff, located on Hilton Head Island bring two kegs of their exceptional craft beer, which apparently was equally refreshing to the dogs that attended as well. Only in the South… Guests were also treated to gift bags from Harry’s, which has a cult following for its’ affordable razors, shave cream and blades. Local menswear store Indigo & Cotton also contributed gift cards for the lucky gents attending. Brands who stopped by included:

  • Garden & Gun Magazine
  • Fuzzco
  • J. Stark
  • City of Charleston’s Cultural Affairs
  • Farm Bar
  • Jay Fletcher Graphic Design
  • Byers Design
