I haven't been to the square onion in years - and for no particular reason other than I'm not usually nearby at lunchtime. But it was always delicious and the first summer they opened I was adicted to their Caprese Sandwiches. Heavens knows how many of them I ate in those 3 months. Anyway, with the recent weather having been hotter than the hinges on the back door of hell, I thought a cold summer sandwich would be just the thing. So, I stroll into the Square Onion with my mouth already watering. Then, I notice the daily special, and I ordered that instead. It was the most delicious heirloom tomato sandwich! There were juicy and flavorful bright yellow heirloom tomatoes layered with softened goat cheese, fresh basil, really good quality olive oil, and balsamic vineger. All of this lovliness was inside a perfect roll -- soft and chewy on the inside, crusty and lightly toasted on the outside. I had planned on eating 1/2 today and saving the other for tomorrow, yet I found myself stuffing my face until the entire sandwich was gone. I am now sitting back in my office chair, groaning, and wondering how I'm going to face a full afternoon of work. By the way, the side I chose today was edamame salad. It was solidly good, light - yet filling, and so much healthier than usual side choices that accompany sandwiches. So, 5 Stars to the Square Onion!!! I'll be back next week!!
Both Muddy Waters provide some of the best coffee and just plain good fellowship than those other places. Prices are right and the west ashley one offers great sandwiches. Visit one today!
Very good show overall, I thought the Village People gave me more of what I came for, but they were both good. We left early as people started to crowd up into the aisles of the seats, making it just too hot to stick around.
I was there and loved the performace. It was VERY hot though! - JA
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.
The atmosphere is otherworldly which accentuates the therapeutic experience. I had an amazing foot bath which cleaned out many toxins in my body. I also enjoyed the "sampler" night which is more social than the private experience though it allowed me to see many other facets of what this great place will do for my body and soul.
i just stepped into seeking indigo the other day and i have been counting the moments until i can get back inside those walls. i have been looking for place just like this in the charleston area for some time now. $20 miguns! you can't get that anywhere. i immediately felt my worries lift. i spoke to very intelligent people willing and wanting to help me with any problem i have. my lower back with always be appreciative but my mind and my soul, now that it understands peace, will always seek it.
I love H&L and shop there all the time. And the variety...how much more could any one person want? That store is loaded. I walk the aisles everytime I am there. Amazing. I always go in the daylight though and do know that they are open until 8pm in the evenings. Never have seen any sign of a problem.
I got mugged outside of the store. it's in a terrible part of town-- right nextdoor to the community thrift stores where homeless people hang around all day. i was disappointed in the selection at h&l but was impressed with the fact that it was so clean for an asian market. i don't know about you but the cleanliness was not enough to get me back to the store though because what i care about is 1) safety and 2) variety. both of which were lacking for h&l
Yoga is supposed to be the art of breathing and letting go among other things. Coming here is so uncomfortable, I have a hard time breathing, let alone "letting go". Some, but not all of the Yoga instructors are rude and inconsiderate to the customers. Yoga is supposed to be so much more, and this studio "takes" instead of "gives". I would not recommend this Yoga studio to anyone even if they lived right next door.
I refuse to buy cookies, tarts, or cupcakes anywhere else in Charleston because they just won't stack up to Sugar.
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!
This festival by far was the worst event I have ever attended. As a native New Yorker I have experienced a variety of cultural festivals and one should never try to adulterate a cultural event/experience. They only had one vendor selling Caribbean food, which was horrible. The rest were selling food you can find at a backyard BBQ? The parade consisted of maybe 7-10 people and only one person with a full carnival contest, the other person who was not of Caribbean descent had a partial custom on? This was a real disappointment and a shame that this event was supposed to represent a carnival/festival. They needed to better organize this event and advertise accordingly. The advertisement was truly deceiving and did not follow through with its promise. Beware of the events advertised in this city, it is never what they say it is or what you imagine it to be!
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?
I loved the book, which was full of insights about my daughter and myself and our relationship and growth. As well as reminders of our own traveling adventures. Best of all, the book Traveling with Pomegranates is so vivid in the sites of Greece, I feel I have been there.
I want to sign up my daughter and I to go on one of your traveling quests!

I hate to say it but H & L blows away Quyen for authentic Vietnamese. The pho broths are similar but when you compare the freshness and quantity of the herb condiments there is no comparison. And they are fast!
52.5 is vital to the Charleston/King St. shopping experience, as it is one of a handful of businesses preventing the district from turning into an outdoor mall.
52.5 fills the gap left by all the big stores, i.e. more obscure music for true music nerds, of which I am one. It is not designed to fulfill the needs of people seeking their Top 40 fill. It is where I found Tom Waits on vinyl and a collection of Mark Ryden prints. It is where I can see cool artwork and buy used CDs and vinyl, plus the latest cool and more difficult to find indie stuff. Whenever I actually have money, that's my first stop!
