  • One Life Wellness Studio
    Board-certified acupuncturist and licensed massage therapist Sara Putman of One Life Wellness Studio fights a gentle war against most types of stress. Operating under the belief that the human body needs a helping hand to regulate its health, she combines holistic treatments with lifestyle advice to address each client's personal ailments. Before each massage session and acupuncture treatment, which can include Chinese herbal medicine, Putman investigates the client's medical history and devises the appropriate plan of action during a thorough consultation. She welcomes visitors of all ages and backgrounds into her studio, and ensures guests never feel rushed by reserving large blocks of time for every appointment and hanging wall clocks that whisper, "Hey, take it easy," instead of ticking.

  • The Charleston Angler
    The water starts to darken along a stretch of marsh grasses, just before its surface is slashed apart by the fins of hungry redfish. The redfish trap schools of mullet into a tight corral—and then go into a feeding frenzy. South Carolina fishermen love this scenario. The owners of The Charleston Angler love it, too, which is why they founded their shop back in 2000. The shop's crew of seasoned anglers supply fly, inshore, and offshore fishermen with tackle specific to South Carolina's waters, from the coastal flats that draw trophy tarpon to the inland lakes filled with blue catfish. Along with advising customers on gear from brands such as Shimano, Penn, and St. Croix, the shop hosts classes and seminars. These sessions can cover topics as broad as Orvis fly-fishing, or as specific as catching bass in the cypress-strewn swamps of Francis Marion National Forest. Beyond tackle and apparel—some of which comes from their own "Redfish" line of t-shirts, trucker hats, ball caps, visors, and jackets—The Charleston Angler offers fly-fishing and light-tackle charters and runs an in-house embroidery boutique. The staff also posts tips, insights, fish haikus, and fishing reports on its Reel Blog and encourages customers to share their fish stories.

  • Chucktown Alumni
    Rather than cheering on their alma mater’s team, Chucktown Alumni recreational sports leagues let school-proud players get into the game. Graduates form teams of up to 23 players, showing their school spirit by playing in their shared college or high school’s colors. During the 10-week flag-football season—composed of an eight-week regular season and a two-week tournament—teams vie for weekly supremacy in games strategically scheduled not to conflict with college football games. At the season’s close, officials dole out prizes to the winning clubs and players who sewed their jerseys into the most stylish patchwork capes.

    A Charleston institution since 1936, the Charleston Symphony Orchestra gathers internationally experienced musicians to perform popular favorites and classical masterpieces. In this season's opening concert, the orchestra invites acclaimed Broadway stars Rita Harvey, who recently performed in Fiddler on the Roof with Rosie O'Donnell, and Ron Bohmer, whose resumé brims with high-school-track ribbons and starring roles in The Phantom of the Opera and Sunset Boulevard. As conductor Stuart Malina dishes out Morse code instructions with his baton, singers belt the familiar lyrics of songs from Rodgers and Hammerstein classics, including The King & I, South Pacific, and The Sound of Music. A talented cadre of strings, horns, and percussionists recreate the sweeping sounds of Broadway, led by concertmaster Yuriy Bekker, whose violin has dazzled audiences in the Kennedy Center and music festivals worldwide.
