What the Charleston Lady Was Doing While Her Other Half Watched the Epic Finale of the 2016 World Series

By, Minta Pavliscsak
  • Enjoying the crisp fall evening on the patio while sipping a glass of wine and sneaking a few pieces of the kid’s Halloween candy.
  • Hanging out with her man because she is after all a true Southern Bell, and supporting his interests is just part of what we do. {…even if there may be texts exchanged with the bestie about how cute that one player’s butt looks in his uniform.}
  • Sleeping – hopefully not interrupting any important plays with the occasional, adorable snore.
  • Finally catching up on her DVR shows on the smaller T.V.
  • Using her man’s credit card to buy those shoes she has been eyeing for quite some time now. -How that matching belt made its way into the shopping bag is a mystery to her!-
  • Constantly refilling the chip bowl and mixed nuts while making countless pigs in blankets, all while keeping the coffee table her honey and his friends are huddled around clear of empty beer cans and bottle caps.
  • Taking advantage of an empty house to sit around in her favorite baggy, ripped sweats and bleached stained hoodie for once…crazy hair and all.
  • Getting hit on at Mac’s Place -unbeknownst to her significant other- by some guy rooting for the opposing team, despite the fact that her and her man have been sharing a plate of nachos since the second inning and he keeps drinking her beer because he refuses to take his eyes off of the screen.
  • Pretending to show interest in the game but instead, plotting her moment when she gets to use the line that starts with, “Honey remember that time when I sat up with you after midnight watching the World Series?”
  • Cheering right along by her love’s side because she has always been a Cubs fan.

The Break: Where Charleston Adults come to eat and play

Between the Peninsula and Folly Beach are a rich traditional of restaurants, bars, an adventure course, great fresh seafood, county parks, a gym, thrift shops and more.? Just to the left as you head to the beach, there is a restaurant that provides all the necessary elements of a man cave than would even make a woman smile.

The Break on Folly Road is the perfect escape to play, drink and eat.

A few reasons you need to spend some quality time here:

  • Monday Night is Live Trivia – Starts promptly at 7:00 PM
  • A series of large screen televisions including a ridiculously large one as you enter
  • Outdoor patio seating when it isn’t 110 degrees outside
  • Plenty of parking lot space to park or play cornhole
  • At the corner of the strip mall is Badd Kitty (Adult shop for couples and more)
  • Pool Tables
  • Dart Boards
  • Regulation Air Hockey
  • Beer Pong Video Game
  • Basketball Video Shoot
  • Competition Racing Game
  • NBA Jam ’94 (Yes Old School)
  • Pinball
  • Tater Tot Nachos (Oh Baby good)
  • A fun and friendly staff
  • Craft Beer, a few wines and full service bar

If sixteen reasons aren’t enough, I give up.

For $25.00 and a dream, you can play games, drink some good craft beer and catch a game on the big screen.

The bar is spacious offering table, bar and booth seating with separation points for the video games and pool area.

Sometimes you don’t always see what is right in front of you.? The Break is no exception.? From the street, it looks like a nice stop in bar, but once you walk in you will see it is so much more.

This is a treat for Charleston/James Island and one that will not bore you.

The Break is located at 778 Folly Road, James, Island, SC
