Downtown stroll comes to newly dubbed area

Jeannette Louise will be participating in the inaugural the Slightly North of Spring Stroll.

Of course, everyone that lives here knows about the Slightly North of Broad area of downtown Charleston. There is a restaurant that bears the same name, also referred to as SNOB, after all.

A new side of town has now been similarly coined. Check out the Slightly North of Spring, or SNOS, area on Saturday at the inaugural SNOS Stroll Open House.
