Taking in a Dive along the Coast

Taking in a Dive along the Coast

When you think about all the games we played to pass the time as kids, it doesn’t take long at all to rattle off a list. Of course, this was long before the smartphone changed everything. Heck, I am even talking pre-cable TV and remote controls. Can you imagine our kids living through such a time?

9 Bartenders We LOVE

9 Bartenders We LOVE

Bartending isn’t just about pouring drinks. If it were the extent of their craft, anyone could do it. Right now, there are robots out there mixing mudslides and piña coladas. But that’s not bartending; that’s just mixing drinks.

And that’s the easy part. What makes a good bartender isn’t how they masterfully blend ingredients into a toast-worthy cocktail; it’s how they blend personalities. It’s how they can be your closest confidante on a day when you just need to vent over a stiff one. It’s how they can tame a whole bar full of unruly tourists with just a few words. It’s how they will toast your best days with your favorite drink, prepared before you’ve even asked for it.

A robot can mix you a drink. But a bartender will be your therapist, your cheerleader, and if necessary, your babysitter. And that’s why we’re thankful they’ll always be there.

You Are Not Alone: How the new short film “6:22” is shining a light on the invisible struggle faced by so many.

Nearly every day, you cross paths with someone who is at their lowest moments, but you’ll never know it. While presenting a brave face to the outside world, they mask a seemingly inescapable darkness within. According to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, there were an estimated 1.38 million suicide attempts in 2019. Of those, more than 47,000 succeeded.

Bachelors and Bachelorettes: Where are they now?

Bachelors and Bachelorettes: Where are they now?

As we hear up to bring back CH2’s Bachelor of the Year contest and party in 2022, our thoughts wandered to our past candidates. So, for this February month of LOVE, we figured we would check in on some of our former Bachelor & Bachelorettes, to see how they found “their lobster,” (this is a Friends reference for the pop-culture deficient) when they knew she was “the one,” and what they think they key to a happy marriage is.

Matt Stock: Everyone’s Favorite Island Grinder Gets His Moment

Matt Stock: Everyone’s Favorite Island Grinder Gets His Moment

The title of Matt Stock’s upcoming comedy shows at The Roasting Room is as soaked in irony as his undershirt is soaked in sweat after one of his countless, beloved holiday Santa Claus appearances. As much as he doesn’t want to jinx it by stating it aloud, things are pretty alright these days now for Hilton Head Island’s unofficial spirit animal.

With a Straight Face: Jim and Meredith Bannon bring their lighthearted approach to the serious business of the law.

If you’ve ever been on the megapopular website Reddit, you know that Redditors, as they are called, love to disagree on things. You can post something as innocuous as a picture of a piece of bread nailed to a tree (and someone has) and expect a full-blown brouhaha to break out. Which is what makes it so weird when they all find something they agree on.

The True Spirit of the Community

The True Spirit of the Community

Let it never be said that the Lowcountry doesn’t know how to  give back. Ours is a community built on a spirit of volunteerism, where any need that needs filled will soon find itself with a small army of helpers at their disposal. When we set out to spotlight a few of the legion of selfless locals who call our area home, we knew the hardest job would be in limiting our search. While the volunteers you see here are to be lauded for their generosity and spirit, know that for every face you see here, there are hundreds more ready to make life a little better in our community.

Ready to Serve: Every table is a new adventure for the island’s most elite waiters and waitresses.

Ready to Serve: Every table is a new adventure for the island’s most elite waiters and waitresses.

When you have a place like the Lowcountry, a place where hospitality is the driving force behind everything, your servers are everything. They will form a visitor’s first impression, setting the tone for an entire vacation and playing a key role in the decision to return. They were our frontline workers long before anyone had heard of COVID, and as we emerged into this uncertain new normal, they have become an even more vital part of our community. Which is why we, as a society, have started making sure we tip just a little bit more than we would have pre-pandemic (and if you’re not, you absolutely should). It’s also why we have chosen to celebrate some of the Lowcountry’s best and brightest servers here.

48 Hours

With an island destination as popular has Hilton Head Island is, inevitably you get people visiting it in a variety of ways. Most commonly are families, who load up their minivans somewhere significantly north of here and make their way down for a Saturday check in. Any number of restaurant owners can set their calendars by their arrivals. Oh, June 22? The Callahan family from Santa Claus, Indiana will be here for dinner. Party of five. Dad will have the prime rib. Count on it.
