Last night, the 40th season of the Spoleto Festival USA opened with Porgy and Bess, and in attendance were many Charleston notables — from former Mayor Joseph P. Riley to current Mayor John Tecklenburg, former U.S. Sec. of Education and Gov. Dick Riley to cookbook author Nathalie Dupree and journalist/author Jack Bass, Southern Charm’s Patricia Altschul and her beloved butler Michael — or at least that’s who it looked like as we exited the Galliard Center at 11:30 p.m. as the opera came to its conclusion.

Friday night we hit up Pecha Kucha. After some welcome noodles we were treated with a spicy version of a screwdriver from the fine folks at Icebox. Needless to say, the cocktail put us in the mood to listen to nine food and bev connected speakers. People like Butcher & Bee owner Michael Shemtov, The Cake Farmer Amy Robinette, and Charleston Beer Exchange manager Brandon Plyler made us pleased to welcome back the Charleston Parliament showcase. Well, we take that back. We were mostly pleased to welcome back the live tweet wall — we’ll take part in any chance to interrupt an audience’s attention.
