On Monday, September 25th, Edmund’s Oast is pulling a “Switcharoo” on its diners. The downtown restaurant will stop its normal service in favor of a special fundraising event benefiting Ben’s Friends, a food and beverage industry support group in Charleston offering hope, fellowship, and a path forward to professionals who struggle with substance abuse and addiction.

During the event, area bartenders will be chefs for the night, while local chefs jump behind the bar. The menu they all create will be available a la carte.

Participants include:

  • Jayce McConnell, Edmund’s Oast
