International Go Surfing Day

McKevlin's hosted International Go Surfing Day at the Washout on the 22 of June. I got down there early sat on the Rocks for a while. Usually a great view, but the renourishment project was going on again & we all know how that goes. I put up the charlestoncrystalball.com banner above the McKevlin's banner, you can never get enough exposure these days.

Finally we got to go surfing. We all just grabbed a board and ran into the ocean. It was as if a bunch of folks who kinda know each other got together for a Surf Session. The whole time out, I was eyeing the 6'4 Allison fish. She was a pretty board, but in the arms of some other guy for at least an hour. When I did get to take her out it was nice, but not as nice as I thought it would be. "I keep telling myself that so I don't go out and buy her!"

In the end it was a big sucess. Everyone who participated had a blast.

PS Even Stephan Colbert supported International Go Surfing Day

The Have Nots! "Rulers of Charleston's Second City"


As Charleston's own local version of the famed Second City comedy troupe, The Charleston Have Nots! continue to stir up infectious stage antics, fresh improv, and a myriad of unique performances by owners/comedians Timmy, Brandy, and Greg.

Earning countless awards for their talent, the Have Nots! are beyond inventive as performers. On and off the stage, these comedians offer another element to good-natured, refreshing comedy. Theater 99 is an intimate spot tucked away above the Bicycle Shop on Meeting Street. The audience can enjoy countless laughs from the comfort of their seats while enjoying snacks and beverages throughout the show. The environment is open and relaxed - reflecting upon the creative team that generated Charleston's best comedy troupe.

During intermission, check out the unique artwork in the concession area; then head back in for another hour of contagious laughs for the whole family. Also, there is now a ramp for easy wheelchair and handicapped access. No matter what, you are always taken care of and full of laughs while at Theater 99.
