Sunday brunch is a Lowcountry tradition. Relaxed mornings with mimosas and Bloody Marys, breakfast casseroles and beautiful salads, are something we in Charleston take very seriously. Therefore we’re delighted to invite you to our first official C2C Sunday Brunch, hosted by Tom Taft at his home on Rainbow Row, to kick off the final day of Festival festivities. Brunch begins at 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, November 11. Tickets can be purchased in conjunction with History on Trial with Deborah Lipstadt and Anita Zucker.
