Swig & Swine: One Year Anniversary Celebration
It’s been one year since Swig & Swine opened its doors to barbeque-lovers near and far, and the restaurant is inviting all its “swiners” to celebrate with a One Year Anniversary Party on Wednesday, May 27 starting at 11am.
The first 100 guests through the doors on May 27 will receive a free rack of Swig & Swine’s famous ribs. Additionally, guests can enjoy $1 Palmetto Brewery Amber Ales throughout the day, and the first 100 people to order these brews will get to keep the pint glass. Guests are encouraged to arrive early, as these deals will go quickly.
For more information about Swig & Swine and the One Year Anniversary Party and the Pig Pickin’ Picnic, visit SwigandSwineBBQ.com or find them on Facebook at Swig & Swine.
