Myrtle Beach TV: Recent Coverage
Scott Honeycutt: A Delightful Man Who Prepared Fabulous FoodRecently, Scott Honeycutt of Sweetgrass Catering passed from this life to join loved ones in the next life.
Many of you may remember Scott as he appeared on our show in the Sweetgrass Catering pieces, or during the Little River Deli coverage.
He also catered Chamber of Commerce and other events in our area.
He was a joy to be around, we will miss him, and our hearts go out to his family, friends, colleagues and clients who will indeed feel a void that Scott filled with fun, laughter, and great food.
Dozens more stoogified Friday night in Little RiverFriday night dozens more locals and visitors to the area joined the many locals who've previously been stoogified by local rock group the Sick Stooges.

Watching the process is as entertaining as going through it, we might add.
