Mex 1 celebrates five years with 18,000 pounds of snow this January

Let it snow


Celebrate five years of Mex 1 with their Snowboard Rail Jam party, held at the restaurant's flagship location at 817 St. Andrew's Blvd. in West Ashley on Sat. Jan. 13 from 5-11 p.m. Now through Dec. 25 you can buy discounted tickets ($10, $15/starting Dec. 26) online.

So what exactly is a snowboard rail jam party? Kind of what it sounds like. Mex 1 and Holy City Events will bring in snow machines that create 18,000 pounds of real snow (you read that right), set up a snow board rail jam, and have Pro-Am snowboarders have at it.

Head to the party for music from DJ Natty Heavy, a $200 cash prize costume contest for best "snow bro" and "snow bunny," and drink specials from Tito's Vodka, Pacifico, Exotico Tequila, and Stone Brewing Co. Stay for the snow — because when else will you see Charleston turn into a winter wonderland?
