I first went to Holy Cow in 2000. I knew little about yoga, the practice. Tracy, the owner, was the instructor. I've always been athletic, physically fit. I was a competitive, nationally ranked swimmer for years. I frequented local gyms (Trey's in West Ashley etc). Did the 45 min treadmill etc...never liked it, it was a chore.
The impact of that first class, physically, mentally and emotionally; changed my life forever. I'm not diligent with my yoga practice. Over the years, I'd go 3 times a week for months, then not for 6 month. Get back into it for a good while, then not go for 2 years. The things I learned however, stay with me everyday, whether I'm practicing at Holy Cow or not.
I've taken classes at several other yoga studios throughout the Charleston area. Nothing's ever come close to the experience, the "vibe" or energy that's never changed at Holy Cow. Holy Cow will always be the true essence, the core of yoga in Charleston.
They have delicious chocolates, baked goods, coffees, and even baguettes; Where can I get a salami sandwich for myself and a blueberry dark chocolate bar for my wife and then two cups of coffee to wake us both up after? Christophe, that's where.
Oops, my previous review was suppose to reflect 5 stars and not 1. This place is awesome!
The Pluff Mud Porter and Dorchester Lite are my go to beers. Now they have the Follicle Brown in cans too, woohoo!
Would happily pay a double premium to shop for wine without the nuisance of some idiot walking around blabbing on a cell phone...would pay triple to see the same idiot tossed out of the store while wining.
The sign says No cell Phones. That makes you the idiot.
Great place - glad I run it.
BLU Gorilla is GREAT!!! I keep going back! Go see Brad he's awesome and is very talented!
This mall has the only IMAX in the Charleston area. It also has the largest Belk & Dillard's locations in Charleston. Centrally located, easily accessible and convenient to all areas of Charleston.
Terrific company downtown to see good theatre. They do a lot with the smaller space and it is very comfortable. Creative sets and lighting and quality productions.
Excellent store, covered most everything in working with beads.
I'm so excited for Katherine and her new collection of RTW items! I've been a big fan of lulakate from the 'skirt' days and have purchased a bridesmaids dress and can't wait to be a customer of the new collection as well! Love supporting local businesswomen in our area.
Threshold isn't just a "location" for other companies to use, it's a theatre company that produces quality productions and doesn't charge an arm and a leg to go see them. In fact, I saw that their latest production, The Exact Center of the Universe, a beautifully written dramady (drama and comedy), is only $10. Plus they always have a freebie preview show. The theatre building itself is small but well appointed with comfortable chairs, and all the bells and whistles which go along with great productions. At Threshold you don't get bare minimum sets and all white lighting. They truly try to give you scenic and lighting production elements along with terrific acting and quality plays. If you haven't visited Threshold Repertory Theatre, you are missing out! There's a couple of great places to eat close by too and a chocolate shop. What more could you want?!
I was shocked to find out how cool HoB was, especially since it was right down in Mt Pleasant. This place is a craft beer lovers heaven, wrapped up in a locals bar. First of all, if you are looking for a normal drinking establishment, you are in the wrong place. This is a house, converted into a bottle shop and bar. They have a nice list of rotating taps, along with two bedrooms full of bottles. Feel free to pick out any bottle you want, and they can have it chilled and served in a few minutes. Prices are fair, especially for Mt P. What really makes this place special is the atmosphere. The owner is the bartender, and you will not find a nicer guy. He cares about his customers and wants to personally meet every one of them (first name bases kind of thing). The house-like atmosphere really pushes you to meet and converse with strangers, as you sip on fine ales. The back and side yards are set up with fire barrels and seating, as well as a stage for live acts. With many positives, we must also discuss the negatives. My only main issue is the hours, which isn't the owner's fault. They close at 10pm, mainly due to the fact that they are in a residential area. I hear that one of the neighbors doesn't like them (for no good reason), and complains quite often. The early closing time can be a letdown if you are a late dinner kind of person looking for an after dinner beer. Despite the early closing, it is still an awesome place to hang out and enjoy some brews with friends.
Charleston Scuba is a highly professional, 5-star PADI dive shop. They put safety first above everything. I learned how to dive through them and have been diving with them ever since. I'm in my sixth dive season now and love the family and friends atmosphere I experience when I dive with them.
I LOVE this place. The owners are very friendly and helpful without being pushy, and they have a nicely curated variety of merchandise. This is a great place to find hostess or bridesmaids' gifts. They also carry exquisite antique-style jewelry.
Sadly, the store is no longer in business :( I went there a few weekends ago to refill my bottles but the place had been boarded up.
Rating 5 stars because when it was open, it was THE place to get fine olive oils and vinegars and super helpful staff. Got to try so many things that I normally wouldn't try there and learned to like quite a few others!
Go green and stay healthy should be done for your pets too! Go to DoLittles to get started! The staff at the Summerville store is very good! There is a sweet girl there that is super friendly and smart. Her name is Lindsay and she makes a good store GREAT!!!!
Love this place! Laura is always super helpful! As a mom of three this is a big outing for me and I've never been disappointed!
