Business heats up near beaches with recent warm weather

SULLIVAN'S ISLAND, SC (WCSC) -

Beach goers aren't the only ones enjoying the warm weather; local businesses say the mild temperatures are giving them a little economic boost.

Out at Dunleavy's Pub on Sullivan's Island it was a busy day for people enjoying Irish fare.

"I think the weather is bringing them out," said Dunleavy's co-owner Jamie Maher. "I really do. I think the fact that it's so nice out, people are coming out to the beach, walk the beach, take their dogs to the beach. There are people swimming."

Maher says the warm weather business boom has been earlier in the year than usual, with a warmer than usual winter.

"Business has been doing really well," Maher said. "The weather is excellent. You can't get any better than this. I think we're in the middle 70s or something like that."

New restaurant on the block Taco Mamacita owner Stan Hughes says he is looking forward to their first full summer at the beach.

"We're really not sure what to expect," Hughes said. "We think we have a really great place here. People enjoy the food and the service, and we're hoping to be slammed all summer long."

People enjoyed the weather on the outdoor patios at restaurants up and down Middle Street with the restaurants enjoying big benefits too.

All of the restaurants are expecting a busy weekend. The roads will be closed Saturday for a St. Patrick's Day block party.

    The annual Walk for Water raised almost $300,000 for the local non-profit Water Mission.
