FOLLY BEACH, S.C. (WCBD) – The Folly Association of Business (FAB) kicks off their 2021 Taste of Folly and Cocktail Competition Friday. The event will go from Friday until Sunday, February 7th.
The event will be a chance to learn about Folly Beach’s favorite restaurants in search of the best dish and best cocktail in the area.
Participants can buy a Taste of Folly passport for $5 to visit the restaurants. Each visit will result in a stamp on your passport.
Passport holders will also be able to win prizes at the end of the event including: stays at hotels, golf cart rentals, gift certificates and more. The more restaurants you go to, the better your chances at winning.
Roderick Groetzinger, the Bar Manager at the Wiki Wiki Sandbar, said despite the changes, he’s happy the event is pushing forward as this new format allows participants to check out their recent change of location.
People still want to come out here, people love Folly, not just the people who live out here. But for people who do live out here and have been sort of shuttered away from all their favorite places for so long, everyone wants to find some sense of normalcy.Roderick Groetzinger, Bar Manager Wiki Wiki
Each restaurant will feature a custom cocktail made with a spirit from Cannon Distillery for $5.
The Wiki Wiki Sandbar said they are taking their fan-favorite drink, the ‘Crystalline Garden,’ and adding Cannon Grit Vodka in place of their typical rum spirit.
Passport holders will vote for their favorite restaurant and favorite cocktail and the winning restaurants will receive cash and prizes along with the bragging rights.
To participate in the Taste of Folly, purchase a Virtual Passport for $5 and to participate in the Cocktail Competition, purchase an add-on Competition Ballot for $5.
