Before this year’s Spoleto party season gets under way, we’d like to introduce our Spoleto Buzz party blogger, Angela Hanyak.

Hanyak started writing about Charleston nightlife in 2005, becoming a City Paper contributor in 2008. She wrote about food, music, and special events before leaving Charleston in 2009 to work for Columbia Pictures in Los Angeles. She traded L.A. for New York City, working in event planning and sales at Cartier for three years.

Hanyak moved back to Charleston this spring and was a natural choice for Spoletobuzz, having cut her teeth on the 2009 festival party scene. She’ll take you inside roped-off South of Broad soirees and SCENE shindigs full of bright young things. Her first party is Thurs. May 23 — stay tuned for the full report.

Stay cool. Support City Paper.
