the bluff Spring / Summer 2021

Written by Palmetto Bluff

Apr 08, 2021

Three parts mouth-watering, equal parts entertaining, and two parts inspiring with a dash of humor for good measure, and you’ve got the Spring / Summer 2021 edition of the bluff. A delicious combination of photography and writing so good, you’ll want to savor every last line.

We recommend starting with dessert first and diving into this edition’s cover story, Eye Candy, about local chocolatier and tastemaker Adam Turoni. No experience is complete without the right soundtrack, and Charleston-based band Southbound 17’s second EP, Somewhere in the Neon, is just the right balance of East Coast meets classic western sound. For the main course, join our editor as she goes beyond the menu of Blacksheep, Beaufort’s hottest new spot.

If art is food for the soul, then we’re happy to offer you a generous helping of Panhandle Slim, skateboarder-turned-artist whose path to underground fame has been nothing short of unconventional. It’s not a race to the finish, but if it were, we’d recommend Champion Heart, the story of retired Hall of Fame jockey, Eddie Maple.

This is one magazine best experienced interactively, and we hope you enjoy the videos, resources, and even coloring pages we’ve put together to take you behind the bluff. View the Spring / Summer 2021 edition of the bluff now.
