On a steamy summer evening, the Lunch Bunch waited with other happy and hungry Beaufortonians on a line that wrapped around Bay Street for a chance to sample the always awesome Frogmore Stew served last Thursday at Water Festival’s Lowcountry Supper.
Members of the Rotary Club and other volunteers had prepared approximately 1,400 pounds of local shrimp, 1,100 pounds of sausage, 3,500 ears of corn on the cob and 350 gallons of iced tea. There was also plenty of cole slaw, rolls with butter and refreshing slices of watermelon. We all agreed that the food was excellent, maybe even better than last year.
It’s also a family friendly event, so it was great time to introduce 6-month-old Wolfe to his first taste of Water Festival. Crowds gathered and ate in Waterfront Park and enjoyed live music from the Broke Locals and Too Much Sylvia. We were also treated to a performance by The Whistlers — past commodores donning fun costumes and dancing on stage.
So much hard work and preparation goes into making and serving this meal, we appreciate the efforts of all those involved for a yummy success.
