Chico Feo – Folly Beach, SC

IMG_7529 Chico Feo

Ahhh Folly Beach. It is its own Charleston way of life. My first visit here was about a week ago and I immediately fell in love with its Caribbean feel and people. After spending several years in south Florida I have become very attached to the beach life. While it is WAY off the beaten path compared to downtown Charleston it is worth the trek.

Now back to Chico Feo. IMG_7422

A locals beach bar at its best. All outdoor (at least all that I saw) it looks like an adult beach side city park with beer and kickass food. Filled with 25-50 year old regulars I felt right at home. The “WHITE LINE COWBOYS” set was long, interactive, and baddass.

The highlight for me was when Mike Martin asked an 8 year old boy what he wanted to hear and his response was “roll me up and smoke me when I die” during which he sat in on the drums. AWESOME!!!

It was a perfect night that I was blessed to be a part of.

Now I can’t wait for the next show in southern Indiana at the “HYPERION MUSIC AND ARTS FESTIVAL”
