What are you doing this Friday at 5:00 p.m.? Come sit on the front porch of Daniel Island’s new “Refuel,” sip a cool beverage, and sample USDA prime steaks. Yeah, you can put gas in your car, too.

Refuel is clearly not just a gas station. It's a neighborhood market that happens to have some shiny new gasoline bays out back. Oh, sure, you can replenish your car's tank (and reap the rewards of the Fuel Savers program in the meantime), put air in your tires, and give your vehicle a bath, just as at any other filling station. But that very well may merely serve as an excuse to stop in to the bright, friendly shop, where you can pick up a bottle of wine, some USDA prime and choice steaks, and freshly-prepared sides. You'll feel particularly good about your patronage since Refuel is locally owned – the Island Park Drive location is the company's fifth (and largest) Charleston-area store. To cap off its first week open, owner Mark Jordan has invited the community to come out this Friday, December 30, to sample some delicious Stockyard Steaks prepared patio-side on the Big Green Egg starting at 5:00 p.m. We have a hunch this is where Daniel Islanders will be landing often to meet-up, hang-out, and – in more ways than one – re-fuel.
