Charleston on the web: a touching thank you to Uncle Kracker; restaurants vie for votes

Just a little roundup of things I’ve seen on the web over the last couple of days:

This very sad story came across my newsfeed last night after one of my Facebook friends became one of nearly 300 people to like the post on Uncle Kracker’s Facebook page. It’s written by a Colleton County High student about her friend who died and how happy he was to see the singer at the Coastal Carolina Fair.  Check it out. The comments are touching too.

 Craving attention

National magazines frequently take to social media to ask readers to vote for their favorite things, restaurants especially. Crave Kitchen & Cocktails in Mount Pleasant just recently “dominated” an Esquire contest seeking the best Mac and Cheese.

And now Fiery Ron’s Home Team Barbecue (Sullivan’s Island and West Ashley) is asking for you to vote in a Southern Living contest seeking the South’s Best Ribs. I noticed that Jim ‘n’ Nick’s is on there, as well as Sweatman’s in Holly Hill. The good news is you can vote for as many as five.

 Cover kids

Lowcountry Parent magazine is having its annual Cover Kids photo shoot Saturday. There will be plenty for your children to do AND you can sign them up for a chance to appear on the cover of the magazine.

Have fun.
