A different kind of potluck, as in, no cream of mushrooom soup will be used.

How the heck are ya on this fine Earth Day?

Here's to easily biodegradable corn-based drinking cups and a country full of sassy, reusable grocery bag toters. Hooray!

So, what are YOU doing this Sunday? Because I've got an idea...

WHAT: The Lowcountry Local First/Slow Food Charleston Chef’s Potluck. It's a whole posse of local chefs, including our very own Nico Romo , chefs from Middleton Place, EVO, Slightly North of Broad, High Cotton, Fez, Anson, Monza, Anson’s, McCrady’s, The Glass Onion, Savory Market and an array of local growers, like our pal Rita Bachmann for instance. Basically, it's an afternoon of fantastic local food, lovely libations and live music. All to raise funds and awareness of the vital role local farms play in sustaining our fine community.

WHEN: Sunday, April 27th from 4:00 -7:00 pm

WHERE: Middleton Place

DEETS: Hosted by our friends at Lowcountry Local First and Slow Food Charleston. The festivities take place at the Pavilion at historic Middleton Place. Get your local appetite on under a canopy of oak trees on the banks of the Ashley River. Doesn't that sound like big Sunday fun?Live music, beer from Coast Brewery, wine and a silent auction of wares from local businesses. Seriously, what else do you need?

Tickets are $40 and are available at Charleston Cooks!, EVO, Plum Elements, Rita’s Roots at the Charleston Farmer's Market, or by emailing jamee@lowcountrylocalfirst.org. Fish is a proud sponsor, along with “Fresh on the Menu” – a SC Department of Agriculture program dedicated to promoting SC grown products – and Brainstorm Web Design.

In other PP news, congratulations to Laura Patrick (daughter of Celeste and Charles Patrick), who is the proud owner of her first home. May your repairs be few and your housewarming presents plentiful!

As promised, here's an event tidbit from one of our resident professionals, Sales Manager, Adrienne Boyle:

"At The William Aiken House, I always recommend using one large scented candle. It perks up peoples' senses, so they notice your florals more!"

You heard it here first!
