We got a personal invitation from the Low Country Parrot Heads to join them in their 13th Annual Mardi Crawl on Shem Creek, February 25th, 2017. It’s the weekend prior to Fat Tuesday! Funds raised benefit the Alzheimer’s Association and Pet Helpers. Note from them is below. The Club is in the Charleston area. The date is Feb. 25th and if you click on the link, you can find out more.
The format will be very similar to last year with a pre-party on Friday night(6-9pm) at RB’s right next to Red’s Icehouse. We had so much fun at it last year and want to do it again this year. We feel that this part is purely the Parrothead Spirit of the Crawl. We plan to have live music, fun and lots of surprises.
Our host hotel will be Quality Inn (same as last year) and we will run a shuttle back and forth prior and after the Crawl.
Saturday is the main event with one addition – we have added a restaurant down the Creek,The Wreck. We will provide land and water transportations to them throughout the Crawl as well as the other points on the creek. The views from The Wreck are absolutely wonderful. So the participating restaurants will be Red’s; RB’s; The Shelter; Shem Creek Bar and Grill; Vickery’s and The Wreck! The Crawl is from 1-6PM with an after-party at Red’s after that. Many of our participating restaurants will have live music during the day.
Changes to let you know on the Creek from last year. The office building on the corner of Coleman and Mill St is closer to completion and we will be able to use their parking facility. The Parking lot between the new office building and Red’s Icehouse will be paved by the time we have the Crawl. The docks the Vickery’s side of the creek are finished with a stairway to Coleman Blvd on the Vickery’s side only. That means that the water taxis will be able to take you to that side of the creek this year. The dock is now part of the Town of Mount Pleasant Parks and is a beautiful walkway.
Online Preregistration is at lcparrotheads.org and still only $25. If you register prior to February 11th – you will receive a wonderful commemorative T-shirt. After that point and walk up registration ($30) will be amazing SWAG.
I would really appreciate having you pass this information on to your club members and I look forward to having you celebrating the Crawl with us.
Please let me know if you have any questions,
