Mount Pleasant Magazine Sept/Oct 2022

If you’re leaning toward American classics with a foodie twist, head to Rivertowne Public House. They have a little bit of everything, from burgers and salads to pizza and charcuterie, so everyone will leave happy and full. As for cocktails, try one of the mules, martinis or margaritas — they have quite the selection on all three! Craving something with Latin flavor? Head to Agaves Cantina’s North Mount Pleasant location, and sit outside on their patio. But make sure you’re extra hungry (or you bring extra people) because the menu is huge, and you’ll want some of everything. Personally, I recommend the Sopes, the Agaves Bowl, or the Seafood Chimichanga. Listen to live local tunes at Awendaw Green Dr. Eddie White’s dental practice, Sewee Dental Care, was one of the first businesses in North Mount Pleasant. But besides loving teeth, Dr. White loves music enough that he started a wonderfully melodic place called Awendaw Green. Yes, technically this is in Awendaw and not in North Mount Pleasant (for that matter, the same is true about the Center for Birds of Prey) but leaving it off this list would be a crying shame. You won’t find just any live music here — Awendaw Green is the place to watch soon-to-be-worldfamous bands get their start. The Wednesday evening “Barn Jams” are well worth the $10 ticket, so go rub shoulders with talented local musicians and have a midweek boogie. Finish with a nightcap at The Basement Adults looking for that last beer of the evening (or maybe the first beer, depending) will be happy to find The Basement. This friendly and fun dive bar has all-day specials, so missing happy hour is no big deal. Order any well spirit for just $5, try one of their classic cocktails — as a writer, I’m partial to the Hemingway Daiquiri — or get the special beer and shot combo, your favorite domestic, a craft “mystery beer” or something called a PBR Hard Coffee, which I’m pretty curious about myself. They also have tons of games, so bring your competitive spirit. feature
