RIP

Charleston lost a beloved member of our community, Gary Alameda.  Gary ran G’s Hot Dogs and for most of us visiting his hot dog cart after work, after the bar, or just for a late night snack was the best part of our night.  Our hearts our heavy as we say goodbye to Gary.  For more information on Gary and how you can donate to a Go Fund Me started by his family visit: https://www.gofundme.com/doit4g

THANK YOU!!

We want to thank everyone who came out the Party at the Point for The Dubplates on June 19th.   We raised $5000 for the Mother Emanuel Hope Fund and we could not have done it without the donations collected in jars from Party at the Point Patrons, The Charleston Harbor Resort & Marina, The Dubplates, The Bridge 105.5, and Ear For Music’s personal donation.   We are so proud of our city for coming together in such a peaceful way during an absolute tragedy.  We are Charleston Strong!
