The college kids may have flown the coop for spring break, but Monday night Midtown Bar & Grill was filled with a sizeable crowd. Most of them were there for one thing only: the chance to win tickets to Wednesday’s Best of Charleston party, which we humbly and without bias refer to as the best party of the year.

Some of City Paper’s most faithful readers got lucky and walked away with two passes to the party, which has become legendary for its plethora of free food, booze, and entertainment. Attendees were also let in on a little secret: Midtown was voted best new bar by City Paper readers. For those of you who won tickets, we’ll see you Wednesday at the party. For everyone else, join us at the Blind Tiger for the official after-party. And make sure to pick up a copy of the issue tomorrow!
