How often have you debated over driving to see a great band or going out for some excellent local food, only to decide on staying home because you didn’t want to deal with bar scene traffic and terrible parking? Home Team Barbeque understands your dilemma and is offering a unique solution to bringing the want-to-be music/barbeque patron back to the night scene.
Mick Jewell and Jason McGehee of Home Team BBQ have recently seized the opportunity to provide guests of the Sullivan’s Island Home Team BBQ with the option of using a late night shuttle service called “Shuttle Hogs”, which travels the broad range of Charleston County. “The weekend shuttle travels from West Ashley to the Isle of Palms, Sullivan’s Island, and back over the Ravenel Bridge to West Ashley,” says Jewell. “We’ve seen too many guests of our Sullivan’s Island restaurant up the creek without a paddle at two o’clock on Saturday morning. We are providing a shuttle route that is safe and reliable,” says Jewell. In partnership with Charleston Green Taxi, the local hybrid taxi company, this new shuttle service not only takes the hassle out of finding parking in busy commercial districts, they help to keep the roads safe by providing your own on-call designated driver.
The shutter service is simple. If it’s just you or if you’re with a group, Shuttle Hogs can pick you up from your house and take you straight to your Home Team destination. When you’re ready to go home, just give them a call and you’re on your way. “If you need more room than our 12 passenger van, we can call Charleston Green Taxi and we will accommodate you,” says Jewell.
Shuttle Hogs also provides private transportation and package football trips which include barbecue catering to South Carolina Gamecock Football Games. For $75 you can ride to the football game, eat barbecue, and have a ride home. Bring your own alcohol, but Shuttle Hogs will provide sodas, mixers, ice and cups.
“We want our customers of Home Team BBQ to receive safe transportation and the best possible service we can provide,” says Jewell.
Rates start at $10. Additionally, Shuttle Hogs is available for private service including and not limited to airport pickups, wedding parties, sporting events and concerts. Call 424-1323 for pricing or booking information.
