As part of the 13th annual Lowcountry Splash Open Water Swim (which will be May 24), the Pickled Palate will host a wine-tasting 5-7 pm TODAY. It's only $10! And appetizers will be included.

The Pickled Palate is located at 411 Hibben Street, just off Coleman Boulevard and somewhat across the street from Half-Moon Outfitters, in Mount Pleasant.

The Lowcountry Splash Open-Water swim benefits the Logan Rutledge Children's Foundation, which supports the Lowcountry Aquatic Project Swimming, or LAPS. The program provides year-round lessons to kindergarteners and first graders in local Title 1 Schools.

In its second year, the program is teaching 1,700 kids how to become PROFICIENT swimmers and will likely SAVE kids from being another sad tragedy.
