A toast to the Spirited Brunch

Join the paid subscribers' pre-tour party in Charleston

The Spirited Brunch, scheduled for one week from Sunday, is almost wholly devoted to food.

Beverages have made cameo appearances in the past, such as in the form of punch ladled out by St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, and water poured by the Charleston Baha’i Community, which demonstrated its belief in the oneness of humanity by serving something with no cultural associations. This year, Circular Congregational is offering basil lemonade because its environmentalism aligns with serving what’s local and seasonal.

Generally, though, attending the Spirited Brunch means eating.

But since The Food Section covers both food and drink, the newsletter is making up for the disparity by hosting a toast before the Brunch begins.

Paid subscribers are invited to join the preparty at Lenoir Charleston by Vivian Howard on April 23, 11:30-12:30 p.m.

First glass of sparkling wine (or its non-alcoholic equivalent) is on me.

And if you’re not already paying for The Food Section, it’s not too late to correct that oversight. By clicking the button below, you’ll show your support for independent and original food journalism in the American South—and be cleared to RSVP for Sunday’s festivities.

In addition to celebrating the Spirited Brunch, the toast will give first-time tourgoers an opportunity to plot their routes with expert guidance, since it’s sometimes hard to decide which congregation to visit first. We’ll have veteran Spirited Brunch attendees and volunteers on hand to help you make itinerary choices.

In any case, while the Spirited Brunch is free and open to the public, and requires no registration, paid subscribers need to sign up for the fun at Lenoir. RSVP’ing is as simple as clicking on the red rectangle below:

Hope to see you soon.

Take care,
