The Historic Charleston Supper Club, founded in 2020, this week announced that it is changing its location to the historic Governor’s House Inn, located on Broad St. in downtown Charleston. The Governor’s House Inn was built in 1760 and was the home of Edward Rutledge, one of this country’s founding fathers. Rutledge, who was the youngest signer of the Declaration of Independence, hosted many dignitaries during his time there, including George Washington. Also, born in this the house (in 1782) was Edward’s daughter, Sarah, who would go on to write the very first published cookbook in Charleston’s history, “The Carolina Housewife.” Mike Hebb, a chef and a culinary historian, is the operator of the Historic Charleston Supper Club. He offers a five-course tasting menu where each of the first three courses focuses on a specific period of Charleston’s food history: Colonial, Antebellum, and Reconstruction. Each dish served is authentic to the time period. Hebb also dresses in period attire and narrates each course with culinary and Charleston history. “I am so excited about this opportunity to move the Historic Charleston Supper Club to the Governor’s House Inn,” said Hebb. “The Governor’s House Inn has such a rich culinary and political history, and I look forward to now being a small part of that history and sharing it with others.” The Historic Charleston Supper Club will be offering dinners at the Governor’s House Inn on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 7:30 pm. A glass of Madeira wine, the most popular wine of this era, will also be offered upon arrival. The series opens the weekend of March 12th, 2022. Booking and more information are available at www.historicsupperclub.com.

Grand Bohemian Hotel Charleston, Autograph Collection
Grand Bohemian Gallery will host “and yet we co-exist” exhibition by Taylor and Connor Robinson in September. Local artists Taylor and Connor Robinson handcraft textured sculptural paintings and reliefs under their trade name Visceral Home. Their work is textural, compositions grown from experimentation using contrasting natural earth compounds and unnatural elements to represent the complexities of mental health and addiction disorders. The art they create is a meditative process, a personal reflective journey. While healing parts of themselves they aim to inspire vulnerability in the viewer. The artists intend to help destigmatize mental health by pairing vulnerable written autobiographies alongside viscerally evocative art. Every painting has been cared for and thought of as a singular soulful entity, treated as their own unique being, story being told, and personality. Their artwork and process focus on a personal promise, a deeply felt commitment that they cannot create without helping others create a better future for themselves. Both Taylor and Connor are in recovery from substance abuse disorder, and Taylor battles cPTSD. To be where they are today is a miracle. They are eternally grateful to be able to share their art in new spaces and share their story, and hope to inspire others. They share their gratitude by giving back and donating to local charities (Charleston is at the very bottom of the US list for mental health resources). Taylor and Connor Robinson focus on new and innovative ways to open doors to these potentially uncomfortable conversations, art being one avenue. Taylor and Connor Robinson will be at the Grand Bohemian Gallery for an Opening Reception of this solo exhibition “and yet we co-exist” on Friday, September 1st from 4PM-7PM in tandem with the Charleston Gallery Association’s First Friday Art Walk. Both artists will return to the Grand Bohemian Gallery for a Closing Reception on Saturday, September 30th from 2PM-6PM. The exhibition runs from September 1 – 30, 2023.
