The 13th annual Charleston Wine + Food Fest kicks off this Wed. Feb. 28. While there are still a smattering of tickets to some of the more than 100 events taking place this weekend, most are a little above our pay grade. If you’d rather guzzle a few pints during trivia night at a brewery than sit down to a $100+ four-course meal, well, here’s a roundup that ought to quench your thirst:


Sip and Paint, Art with Andre visits Frothy Beard from 6 to 9 p.m.; this class you’ll paint “Be a Light” mason jars.

Frothy Beard, in conjunction with the Charleston Home Builders Association, will also be hosting a chili cook off Tuesday starting at 5 p.m.

Twisted Cypress holds a fundraiser starting at 6 p.m. in honor of a local who lost his life serving as an EMS; a portion of proceeds from the event will go to the SC EMS memorial bike ride.

It’s just about tank-top weather; get in your workout with the Frothy Fit Club starting at 7 p.m. in the Frothy parking lot.
