The venue was quite good and so were Boyz II Men. I love Patti Labelle and have seen her on three separate occasions. Unfortunately, her perforance was a big disappointment. She never sang a song completely through and talked more than she sang. She began by criticizing Boyz II Men for not coming to say hello to her and stated they had no manners. Shortly after she got on stage she complained about her diabetes, stopped her attempts at singing so she could drink orange juice. Then she proceeded to eat fried chicken and biscuits (turning her back to the audience for most of this lengthy period). Come on Patti, no wonder you need five shots a day if you can't get through a concert without fried chicken and biscuits. Paid to hear her sing not chow down on foods a diabetic shouldn't be eating anyway. Too sad!
All of the local reggae bands who have big aspirations need to attend this show so that they can learn what it means to be a "tight" band. I must say that Jah Works hasn't been the same since lead singer "Scotty P" left the band, but they are still one of the best American reggae bands, not only on the East Coast, but in the entire country...I'm not criticizing the local talent, only suggesting that they may need to pay a little more attention to their ability to remain in harmony and resonance and a little less attention on wardrobe, entourage and covering the same old tired Bob Marley, Dennis Brown, Peter Tosh standards and be creative with their own material. Big Up Jah Works. They do great covers, but personally you can't beat their original tunes. See Ya at the Show!
The movie was good. But, I do want to express my deep concern with your business model. I must protest paying 34.00 to take my grand children to see a movie and spending another 25.00 on refreshments. You make us watch commercials from at least 3 major companies. This is unacceptable during good economic times and unforgivable during this the worst recession since the 1920s.
Mount Pleasant should have stayed the sleepy little village it started as. The people that moved here are responsible for the things mentioned in the above reviews. Boone Hall probably can not pay their bills because everyone is so stinking cheap around here, they probably go the market, get ideas for recipes, then go to Wal-Mart to shop. How about supporting the local market instead of bashing it, then maybe they will be able to pay their bills.
I'm really looking forward to the bed race! One of my sons is in charge of building the bed for the company he works for! Should be a great day of fun!
If you want my opinion, Quyens is a great restaurant. However, the waitresses there do NOT get enough credit for all the work they do waiting on our hands and feet. My husband and I come in at least once a week, and don't ask for much. But, every time we've been in there, the service has been absolutely nothing short of excellent. The staff is nothing but beaming with smiles and extremely nice and attentive. I can see it on their faces sometimes that they just don't get the credit that they deserve for what they do. So, when we go in we never fail to make sure the waitresses and waiters get the praise we feel they deserve. The food is better at the end of the week than it is at the beginning. Maybe its just me, or that its Monday, but something about the buffet isn't consistent. While not consistent, its quite appetizing. However, one visit while very tasty was rather weird as we were greeted at the hostess stand by a rather scruffy looking man. He continued to tell my husband and I to have a GREAT time at the Party Kingdom. We were quite confused seeing as how the gentleman wasn't wearing any clothing affiliated with either the Party Kingdom or Quyen's. But overall I love going to Quyen's.
Beautiful place to relax...
Unfortunately, I was NOT at the Live X show. However, I was forced to listen to every note in Tall Pines! I hope the promoters can consider the fact that music from the concert was clearly heard as far as Crowfield, 2+ miles from the event. Next year PLEASE, could you reorient the speakers or keep the volume down?
$14 (total) for an IMAX-3D movie is completely reasonable and in pace w/ the movie ticket market nationwide. Not saying I like it, but it's certainly not unconscionable.
Following you into the bathroom, however, is creepy.
Tonight was the first time we tried Quyen since it changed names from Party Kingdom. The inside was beautifully decorated and the waitresses were attentive and knowledgeable.
We ordered dinner- Pad Thai, Chicken Pho, and the house Crepe. Everything was great and tasty- the pho was enjoyable and my husband inhaled his crepe. Now, a question- does Pad Thai have red and green peppers and onions? Not traditional pad thai (i even googled recipes to see how it should be made). It was good- but strange.
There was an extensive sushi menu, which we didn't order from- not because we didn't want to, but the speciality sushi seemed very pricey. 11-14 dollars- too much for even GREAT sushi. This is Charleston, not NYC.
Overall, good experience, good food. We are impressed with the decorum change and will be going there when we want pho but won't be getting sushi....or the pad thai.
You are right, the service is a weakness of theirs, they don't know how to keep drinks refilled, how to clear a table as you eat and how to stop by the table and ask if everything is OK. The food is SO good, I'll still go there and probably learn to get my own drinks. Last time I was there I got my own menus. Customer service is something many restaurants never seem to get.
2 star service, 5 star food
No need to go to any other Asian eatery in Charleston. They have a new dining room that is very nice. Best Wanton soup I ever had. Curry chicken was amazing.
My family and i go and eat there about twice a month.
It is fabulous each time we go.
We were told that they are planning to do a sushi buffet during lunch hours- and to look for it within the next month or so.
Sushi buffet! SWEET!
Thanks for 2009 Best movie theater in Charleston!
All of us at the TERRACE!
After reading the review in City paper, I decided to try the Vietnamese food at Party Kingdom.
My husband and i enjoyed the Pho, Pad Thai, and spring rolls while we drooled over the isles of candy and wall of Jelly Bellys.
It was an unusual dining experience....video game lights in the background and children redeeming their tickets for prizes, all the while we were enjoying our food.
However, the food was amazing....i have been craving it since we went.
It was reasonably priced and really really really good.
Everyone should go and try it!
A quiet outing for the kids. Inside the facility is a small gift shop (mainly books) and a museum showcasing the habitats and animals in the Awendaw area. Stroll across the outside boardwalk to the wolf enclosure or the woodland loop trail. Be prepared to see wildlife along the way like turtles, lizards, birds, and the occasional snake. The wolf enclosure has a shaded viewing deck. On hot summer days, the wolves are ususally in the shade of their doghouses and the trees and harder to see. However, one of the older residents often comes up to the glass to view the visitors! Neat to see an endangered species up close and therefore worth the trip.
This will be a fantastic place to spend the 4th of July this year. The Coppertones know how to get people dancing.
I love this theater! It often offers the unusual movies that most theaters don't offer. I saw "Smart People there and last Saturday I saw "Flawless"! Sometimes/most times the movies shown here don't have the special effects and that is what makes them SPECIAL! As much as I enjoy DVDs there is nothing like a good movie in a theater!!! I also enjoy the special price at the first showing and at the concession stand the best cookies! When I lived in the Newton area of Massachusetts there was a theater like this one there and I am happy to say I was hoping to find one like it in South Carolina and as I live in West Ashley area it isn't too far away!
I live in Northern Virginia and they think that have great light shows here - No way - Nothing beats James Island's light show - We have been there about 4 times and will absolutely take it in when we go there for Christmas again. It's a tradition
