Update January 30: The party went off great. Check out the write-up and video.

First reporting:

So we've been around for some six months, Charleston loves us, and we realized, "Hey! We haven't thrown our grand opening bash yet!"

Well, we're fixing that little problem and throwing our "Digitel Debutante Ball." It's a chance for you to get to meet us and let us know what you love (or hate) about our site, and -- above all else -- party it up, and get free beer and vegan doughnuts.

Oh, and relax, it's not really a ball, we're just being silly creative with the name. Still, if you want to wear that tux, feel free.

So, please, join us on Thursday, January 29, from 6 to 9 p.m. in the empty shell of Global Awakening at 499 King Street, or just follow the light show and the smell of doughnuts.

And, hey, it's being put together by Ambergre Sloan of Charleston's Most Unique and Kulture Klash, with entertainment by the ever-popular DJ duo The Spaced Invaders, so whatever birthday party or Bar Mitzvah you have planned, cancel it. We promise you'll have a better time at our ball.

Don't know what the heck TheDigitel is? is by far the most complete, informative, user-friendly news site in the world! Well, maybe not the world, but definitely in Charleston. Its witty and detailed reports are short and sweet, keeping you up-to-date (in a timely fashion) with the most interesting and exciting headlines in town. If you want your friends to think you are smart and in-the-know, all you have to do is visit It's like taking a smarty-pants pill each morning.

One of the most admirable traits of is its lack of ego! Yes, ego. is not afraid to re-route you to another website if its readers will get the most in-depth information possible. They want to save you time and give credit where credit is due.

Ken Hawkins (creator, editor and mastermind) is tirelessly researching and using all the necessary tools to get you, the reader, the most recent stories available. He sifts through newspapers, other websites and press releases to pass the good word on to you. Hawkins proclaims " works to have a good relationship with all local media outlets. We know that only through working together on the local level can we achieve the goal that we’ve set for ourselves: a comprehensive view of the community for everyone."

BUT! It's not just news stories. Oh no...It's also videos, podcasts (TheDigicast), interviews, pictures, links, offbeat news, events calendar and directory all rolled into one... You couldn't possibly need to look anywhere else to find everything you need in the Holy City.
