CHAMPAGNE IS THE PERFECT SIP FOR ALL SEASONS
When Cher’s character Loretta Castorini dropped a cube of sugar into her Champagne in the movie “Moonstruck,” purists gasped — but hey, at least she got her man. But we can’t condone the sugar cube-bubbly blend. At most, adding some crème de cassis or Chambord to make a Kir Royale is perfectly acceptable but first things first: Champagne comes from the geographical region of Champagne in France, produced under strict French law. Anything else is just sparkling wine.
FANCY A GETAWAY TO A PLACE THAT’S REDEFINED LUXURY? IT’S CLOSER THAN YOU THINK.
Thinking of planning an escape? Maybe a relaxing getaway to an all-inclusive resort, a cruise aboard a luxury liner, or a week spent exploring a foreign destination. But before you call your travel agent or book your flight, don’t forget that some of the world’s most prestigious luxury accommodations and amenities are right here in the Lowcountry.

Americans are a mobile people. Families are far-flung, turning “over the hills and through the woods to grandmother’s house we go” into “let’s use our frequent flyer miles.”
We are no longer tied to the family homestead. We can live anywhere we want, and we do. Most of us limit that wanderlust to our countries of birth, but not always. (Just listen to the accents at the Pineland Station Starbucks.)
Sometimes volunteerism takes on a life of its own. There’s volunteer service, and then there’s extraordinary volunteer service.
Five Hilton Head Island High School juniors dreamed a simple dream to satisfy the 20 hours of community service required by the college-level International Baccalaureate diploma program they were pursuing.
