June 6, 2018 § Leave a comment

Belle Isle will Make A Charitable Donation to Fisher House Charleston for Every Kickback Mule Sold

In honor of LGBT pride month through the month of June and through the summer months, Tabbuli is serving $10 Kickback Mules prepared with Belle Isle Black Label, Ruby Red Grapefruit, or Honey Habanero Moonshine(s) combined with ginger beer and lime.

Belle Isle Moonshine belleislecraftspirits.com is distilled in Richmond, VA using 100% organic corn and perfected 19th-century techniques. The result is a smooth, potent cocktail base minus the burn and intense taste of vodka or other liquors. The cocktails were created specifically to highlight the flavors of each of the three labels.  The specialty cocktails will eventually roll out for service at two other Charleston Hospitality Group (CHG) properties, Queology and HonkyTonk Saloon.

Enjoy the goodwill with every refreshing sip, knowing that Belle Isle will donate a percentage of sales from each drink sold to Fisher House Charleston, a charitable organizing that provides housing for Charleston area veterans, active service members, and their families during hospitalizations or extended medical treatment.

Running With Heart

Running is More than a Sport for Local Runner Lauren Shipley – It is a Purpose

Lauren Shipley began running two years ago and (at the time of this interview) was ramping up for her second Cooper Bridge Run, getting in about 15 to 20 miles of training per week. The 23 year-old Charleston native and daughter of HonkyTonk Saloon general manager Bob Shipley (pictured with her, bottom right), began running as a means to alleviate stress. “Initially, running was a huge therapeutic outlet for me. A wonderful way to relieve stress and anxiety while getting a great workout at the same time. Now, I really enjoy it. It’s a big part of my life.”

Shipley, who lives in downtown Charleston, finds inspiration in the city’s beauty, especially when she is running. “It’s actually a big part of how I got into running. I run a path around the entire peninsula and am always seeing new things and the water is so soothing.”

Helping the disadvantaged is another very big part of what drives Shipley’s running purpose. A professional mental health tech who works at a behavioral health hospital, she will be taking her sixth trip to East Africa this fall where she will be working to aid children and artisans in Uganda. After, she will head to Ethiopia to participate in her first marathon, Ethio Trail Marathon, which is a fundraiser for the artisans she will be assisting.

The Cooper River Bridge Run (a 10K run that took place April 7), is one of the running steps she took to prepare for the marathon. “I just love it. It is absolutely about the sense of unity. I teared up last year. Standing there with 40,000 people cheering you on. It is indescribable.”

Lauren’s tip for race success? “I always try to stay focused. My main thing is to settle into a motivational play list. My favorite right now is Fight Song by Rachel Platten.”
