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? Get off the peninsula with some underrated restaurant choices.

Once 4:00 p.m. nears, remember happy hours are a legal practice in South Carolina. Stop by one of our newest bars for a drink. When those libations turn on you, Eater also has plenty of help for the hangover, including brunch and coffee.

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

Looking for cheap oysters? There’s a map for that.

Best of luck out there.

Oh, yeah, and keep an eye out for Bill Murray.
