Oyster Roast 2013

On January 13, The Charleston Museum celebrated its 240th birthday with an oyster roast out at the Dill Sanctuary. It was a special treat to spend a mild winter day with new and long-time friends of the Museum at this scenic and peaceful spot alongside the Stono River.

Once again, the oysters cooked up by Ben Moise were fantastic and plentiful. A Southern Bartender helped us all chill out on an unseasonably warm day (and, rumor has it, they served up the best Bloody Marys in Charleston!). Curator of History Grahame Long treated folks to tour of Battery Pringle and some other rarely seen areas of the sanctuary. Last, but not least, we all enjoyed fabulous bluegrass by Blue Plantation Band.

Great friends, food, views, history and music = a perfect Lowcountry afternoon. Thanks to all who helped us celebrated our birthday!
