Kyle Gardner and Alissa St. John photograph themselves Thursday as they enjoy dessert at Tanger Outlet Center 2 in greater Bluffton. The outlet chain, celebrating its 30th anniversary, arranged the event in an attempt to set a world record for the "Largest Dessert Party," a new category created by the Guinness Book of World Records. Similar events took place at Tanger's headquarters in Greensboro, N.C., at each of its 34 outlet centers in 22 states and on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. Auditors from Guinness were to count all the participants to determine whether Tanger set a new record.
