Wine Tasting Wednesday Wars: Profit vs. Charity – A Charleston Dilemma

Tomorrow two of Charleston’s newer establishments are having Wednesday Wine Events:  Mercantile and Mash and The Eclectic Cafe & Vinyl.  One is offering the event for profit, while the other is partnering with a local non-profit organization.

Let us look at the differences in offerings.  Maybe this is a metaphor for distinct differences in Charleston’s culture and economic separation.

Mercantile and Mash is from 6 PM – 7 PM – Tickets are $25.00 plus tax (4 Wines)

The Eclectic Cafe & Vinyl is from 6 PM – 8 PM – Tickets are $5.00 with $3.00 going to the Florence Crittenton Program and 5 Wines


Sometimes these are the trials and tribulations we have to deal with in Charleston
