Things to Do: Festivals & Football October 23

The inaugural Murrells Inlet Live Fest set for Saturday between Dave’s Dockside and Creek Ratz, featuring live music, a selection of craft brews and various shenanigans. The event, scheduled from noon to 10 p.m. Saturday, is a benefit for the Water Keeper Alliance’s Save Our Gulf Campaign. And there will be a MILF Contest (that’s Murrells Inlet’s Loveliest Female), along with a corn hole tournament. It’s $25 to get in, which entitles you to unlimited samples of craft brews from the likes of New South, Highland Brewery and Thomas Creek. Bands include Ten Toes Up, The Root Soul Project, Widespread Panic tribute act Machine Funk, Deepwater Soul Society and Sawgrass. Capt. Dave’s Dockside/Bubba’s Love Shak is at 4037 U.S. 17 Business and Creek Ratz is at 4065 U.S. 17 Business, along the Marshwalk in Murrells Inlet. For more information, visit

Spill the wine, take that girl…Following in the footsteps of Myrtle Beach Beer Fest, the inaugural Myrtle Beach Wine Festival is on tap Saturday at The Market Common’s Valor Park, featuring more than 120 wines from around the globe. And like Beer Fest, it is a sampling event, which means you must purchase a $3 souvenir wine glass, and 2-ounce samples will run $1-$6. Wine reps will be on hand fielding and answering questions. Admission is free. Festival hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday. Valor Park is off of Farrow Parkway at The Market Common, on the former Myrtle Beach Air Force Base, between U.S. 17 Bypass and U.S. 17 Business, south of Myrtle Beach International Airport. Call 839-3500 or visit

The once-mighty Coastal Carolina University football team looks to salvage a season on the brink and put together back-to-back wins on Saturday as Coach David Bennett’s fightin’ Chants take on Stony Brook at Brooks Stadium – and it’s homecoming, too. Game time is 7:30 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $15 and $25. Brooks Stadium is at 540 University Blvd., Coastal Carolina University, Conway (you can see it from S.C. 544).
