See & Do: Charter One Realty Top Picks

The Mouse Trap
A group of strangers stranded in a boarding house during a snowstorm discover a murderer in their midst. The curious suspects include the newlyweds who run the house, a spinster with a sketchy background, an architect who seems better equipped to be a chef, a retired Army major, a strange little man who claims his car has overturned in a drift, and a jurist who makes life miserable for everyone. Enter the policeman, who no sooner arrives when someone is killed. The policeman probes everyone's background, rattling a lot of skeletons. This masterful whodunit weaves an intricate plot filled with suspense, all leading up to the ultimate final twist! Agatha Christie at her best!

Love Wine? Love Food?

The Hilton Head Food and Wine Festival’s six days of events presented by Publix will begin on Monday, March 7th, and continue until Saturday, March 12th. The festival is a highly anticipated celebration of Hilton Head’s exquisite wine and dining community, as well as a yearly opportunity to support deserving students in Hotel, Restaurant & Tourism Management educational programs.
For 31 years, the festival has served as a beacon for the community creating a unique opportunity for winebibbers and foodies to gather together. The event has arguably the best mix of local participants and tourists due to the unique schedule of events and its proximity to the Heritage Classic. This year, the main events will be hosted at The Sea Pines Resort’s Harbour Town Yacht Basin.
Each day of the week presents a new headline event and is a yearly favorite to some festival-goers. Film buffs enjoy the Wine & Cinema event, while wine enthusiasts relish the opportunity to visit with Rudy Buratti on our home soil.
