Beaufort’s best bets this weekend

in What To Do by

JUNE 21: Beaufort Food Truck Fest: The Beaufort Food Truck Fest will take place at Beaufort Town Center on Saturday, June 21 from 2 to 8 p.m. The event is a fundraiser for the Arts Council of Beaufort County and is a chance to sample a variety of “curbside cuisine” — all handmade in small batches and served straight from the vendors who prepared them. Some of the participating trucks and food carts include: Joe Loves Lobster Rolls, Island Noodles, Bhajee on the Beach Indian Food, Palmetto Smokehouse Barbeque, Bruster’s Ice Cream, Pep Rolls of Charleston, Cool Breeze Shaved Ice, Yummy Buns, and Sisters of the New South. A particularly unusual vendor will be Vigil’s Food Stand, who will be serving Navajo and southwestern dishes. Admission to the event is free, but donations are encouraged and you will need to purchase the food. In addition to food, the event will feature live music by The Cluster Shucks, The Hypnotics, and The Rose Family Band. In between the musical acts will be short demonstrations by two local dance groups: The Palmetto Dancers and Revolution Ballroom, a new professional dance studio.

JUNE 21: Alzheimer’s Family Services 8th Annual Dinner Theatre presents “Memories and Secrets of a Lowcountry Lady” on Saturday, June 21 at 6 p.m. The event will feature a silent and live auction. Tickets are $65 in advance and $ 70 at the door. Doors open at 6 p.m. with more than 10 dinner stations open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. Kim Poovey, local author and professional storyteller, will take the stage in character as Miss Emma Victoria Brown, a fact-based fictional character who grew up on a Lowcountry plantation in the mid 1800’s. She will share stories of her life, loves, sorrows and childhood antics as she struggles to find her place in a world where women are expected to be proper and elegant. And don’t miss the drama as Miss Brown shares the family secret that could cost Emma and her family their lives. For tickets and information, call 843-521-9190 or visit www.afsgb.org. All proceeds benefit Alzheimer’s Family Services of Greater Beaufort.
