For those who haven’t heard: Cocktail Artist, a line of premium mixes and bar ingredients, is in search of America’s Best Home Bartender in a Cocktail Mix-Off competition taking place in sunny Myrtle Beach this fall. We couldn’t think of a more fitting partnership--especially considering how much better a cocktail tastes when looking at the ocean--and we’re excited to see which finalist is picked for the month of August! While we wait, we thought we’d make a list of some of our favorite spots to enjoy a waterfront cocktail. There is certainly…

May is one of my favorite times of year here along the Grand Strand. Not just because it’s around the time I’ll start swimming in the ocean, but because it marks the official start of some of our larger area farmers markets. Before tourism was the number one industry in Horry County (where Myrtle Beach is located), farming and agriculture drove our local economy. While the area has evolved as tourism has thrived, it is still home to a number of outstanding farming operations that provide us with fantastic seasonal produce, meat products, eggs,…

Mother’s Day is just around the corner. While I’ve always enjoyed this weekend in the Myrtle Beach area (our mid-May weather is some of my favorite), it’s obviously sweeter now that I have children of my own. And even more fun because there are so many ways to celebrate here along the Grand Strand! Below is a round-up of just some of the spots worth checking out for brunch or lunch this Mother’s Day: House of Blues Gospel Brunch Kirk Franklin’s Gospel Brunch will feature a Mother’s Day brunch and live entertainment by Glory from 9 a.m. to 2…

I’ve participated in two cooking classes at Horry-Georgetown Technical College’s beautiful International Culinary Institute over the past couple months and had so much fun learning new dishes-or new takes on old dishes to try at home. The fairly new International Culinary Institute (ICI) is striking in appearance but somewhat tucked away near The Market Common in Myrtle Beach, and I’m going to go ahead and call it a hidden gem for visitors to the Myrtle Beach area. Their continuing education culinary courses are open to the public, usually take…

Their Drink a Peach beer is new and it features peaches from South Carolina. Though Georgia is known as the “Peach State,” did you know that South Carolina actually produces more peaches?

We recently had the chance to check out Tin Roof, Myrtle Beach’s newest oceanfront music venue, and it did not disappoint. They are offering a complete oceanfront entertainment experience with live music, cold drinks, and a delicious menu much larger than I was expecting!

Tin Roof is located on the third level of a 55,000 square foot, newly constructed building in the 1400 block of Ocean…
