SI Poll Managers Needed

The Town of Seabrook Island will be having both a primary and general election in 2018.  We will be electing many officers, including statewide and local; our Congressional Representative; and various county-wide and less-than-county-wide officers.  We need Seabrookers to join our team of poll managers to ensure a seamless election process.  The primary election will be held on June 12, 2018, with runoffs, if necessary, on June 26, 2018.  The General Election will be held on November 6.  For all elections, the polls are open from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm. (Poll managers are expected to arrive at 6:00 am and leave at 7:30 pm. Breakfast is provided).  Anybody who is interested should complete and send the form attached below to Election Headquarters.  Volunteers will receive training and compensation.  Being a poll manager is rewarding as you get to become an active participant in the democratic process and get to see all your Seabrook Island friends in one day.  Historically, the Town of Seabrook Island has had very high voter turnout, so we need all the poll managers that we can get.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact George Reinhart at 843-768-6794 or .

New Restaurant Opening Soon – Roadside Seafood Restaurant

There’s a new restaurant coming to the location previously used by Chez Fish on 3966 Betsy Kerrison Parkway. The restaurant is called Roadside Seafood Restaurant and is owned by Seabrookers, Richard and Tanya Perrine. The Perrines also own another restaurant of the same name which is located on James Island. The menu will be similar but with some additional house specialties.

Roadside Seafood sources seafood and other products as fresh and as local as possible. It can be prepared fried, grilled or blackened as the customer chooses. The menu will include flounder, catfish, whiting, grouper, shrimp, scallops and alligator tail (yes, alligator tail). The James Island restaurant has received several awards including a comment from the Post & Courier food critic Hanna Raskin that their she-crab soup was the best. Charleston Magazine named the restaurant the best “down home” restaurant in the Lowcountry. The fried shrimp has been named the best in the Lowcountry and statewide.

There will be beer and wine. The restaurant will be open 7 days a week from 11am to 9/10 pm depending on the season.

The owner plans to open sometime in May. Always nice to have new restaurants joining us.
