Erin Perkins is the editor of Eater Carolinas.

If you're in town for the Charleston Wine + Food, you obviously have plans to consume as much Holy City goodness as possible, but the choices can be overwhelming. In between bites at the Culinary Village or the Signature Dinners, you may want to venture out, so Eater is here to point out the various guides to eating, drinking, and partying during the festival.

If you're in town today, check out the Eater Heatmap for the hottest restaurants in Charleston or the Eater 38 for the essentials. Having trouble deciding? Follow Eater critic Bill Addison's off-the-beaten-path choices.

Once 4:00 p.m. nears, remember happy hours are a legal practice in South Carolina. You'll find a list of deals on our cheap cocktails map, or if you don't care about $3 vodkas, look for an essential Charleston barWhen those libations turn on you, Eater also has plenty of help for the hangover, including egg sandwiches and coffee.

Need free wifi? We've got a map for that.

Need a dive bar to hide in? We definitely have a map for that.

Best of luck out there, and if you haven't nabbed a ticket yet, there's still a few available for various events throughout the weekend.
