It’s our sixth anniversary, Charleston. We sent our very first newsletter on Feb. 15, 2018, and celebrated with a launch party at Edmund’s Oast Brewing Company.

Since then, we’ve grown our audience to over 55,000 subscribers and have ~124,000 followers combined on Instagram and Facebook. Take a look at our 2023 wrapped.

To celebrate six years, Erika + Callie are sharing some of their favorite stories.

Six of our favorite conversations

City Editor Erika:

City Editor Callie:

  • Q+A with Captain Thomas Bierce of Charleston Oyster Farm | Oysters are a Lowcountry staple, and it was so much fun learning more about them. It was great chatting with Captain Tom and learning about the role oysters play in the ecosystem + preservation, harvesting, and what impacts an oyster’s flavor.
  • Five Charleston restaurants that offer tasting menus | Charleston is a foodie’s playground. There are so many great options to explore at every turn. It was great exploring restaurants offering tasting menus and finding places to get outside our comfort zone.
  • Q+A with Anne and Caroline of Holy Mahj | We loved learning more about American mahjong and the community it builds. We talked with Anne and Caroline of Holy Mahj about the game and the group’s upcoming events.

Now we’ve got to ask — What has been your favorite thing you’ve enjoyed from us for the past six years? It can range from an article to a social media post. Let the team know.
