Re: “Morgan's Road

kick ass band...

Posted by Sara Knight on August 31, 2016 at 7:02 PM

This is Scott from the Charleston Performing Arts Center. This was a GREAT show, but it closed September 25 as planned. Currently we have a wonderful show playing titled "Dream Girls, The Revue". This show's focus is the girl groups of the 1960s ... you'll hear the hits from girl groups like The Shirelles, Martha & The Vandellas, The Supremes, and many more. We tell the story of how the girl group sound started and became THE sound of that decade.

This original music revue has been delighting audiences for weeks and closes on August 28. Get your tickets now by visiting our website or calling our box office.

Re: “Sermet's Southernterranean Cuisine-Bar

Great food! Ate there for the first time last week and absolutely loved everything about it. Our waitress was attentive and just as awesome as our food! Definitely will return often. Goal is to try everything on the menu - something yummy each visit!

Re: “Amalfi's Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria

We went to Amalfi's last night.. it was the best food I have ever had the pleasure of eating! The bread comes to the table with a plate of oil and herbs for dipping -- the bread is heavy and filling and tastes so, so good! I got the tomato soup and fettuccine alfredo. The tomato soup was the best I have ever had. It was so creamy and had pieces of tomato in it and just burst with flavor. The fettuccine was so soft and creamy and the best pasta ever. My husband had tortellini, which I tasted, and am not usually a fan of, but again.. Amalfi's did not disappoint!

The vibe was lovely as well as it felt rather intimate/romantic and of course italian. We probably would never have found this place if we hadn't been actively looking for local cuisine in Mount Pleasant and I would agree with the previous reviewer who called it a "hidden gem". I would recommend to anyone who wishes to have a lovely italian meal or a nice date night.

Also, I did want to point out -- it was not overly expensive and actually quite affordable .. for the two of us (no wine or dessert) it was in the $20 range before tax to give you an idea as I understand different people have different understandings of what "affordable" is. Another side note as well.. this was incredibly filling. We would have tried a dessert otherwise.. Will have to try for that next time =)

Re: “Skoogie's

I LOVE Skoogies and we go there on a regular basis, driving all the way from Goose Creek. I know their Chicago style hot dog seems to be quite popular, but my personal favorite is the polish dog with Chili and Mustard (i love the chili!) and my husband gets the roast beef melt. Also, the fries are great too.. and the seasoning ... now I want Skoogies lol.

Re: “The Pub on 61

Convenient location from our apartment, and we heard from a friend they serve $5 burgers on Tuesday nights so we went up to check it out. The place has definitely been smoker-friendly in the recent past, so you might notice your clothes have a stale smoke smell when you leave. However, the burgers were really tasty, and there are several great beers on tap, plus what looks like a well stocked liquor supply. They also have trivia on Tuesday, as we learned once we arrived, and it's free to play! Prizes are bar cash. Overall a good neighborhood spot and a very tasty $5 burger. We'll be back!

Re: “Sesame Burgers & Beer

So, I considered giving this 2 stars, but went with 3 because the food itself is not the issue. The food.. the recipes.. they are quality and very tasty. However, EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.. we have EVER been to this location.. our order is wrong in some way or another. It is usually things like telling the server not to put this or that on your burger and be VERY clear and forward about it and then you still receive it with all the stuff you did not want. This is a problem. I have food allergies and even if I did not.. it's just not okay. Listen to your customers. Don't just assume you are going to remember the order to relay to the BOH .. it's all very irritating especially since I LOVE Five Loaves.. it's in fact, one of my local favorites, but we have been so many times to this location of Sesame Burger hoping for a nice meal, but we are to the point now where we have stopped going.

Re: “CofC suspends alcohol-related activities for fraternities, sororities

CoFC has a rep as a party school for a good is. Each freshman class progressively worse in the no common sense department. No worries everyone, it only lasts until mid to end of October. With total panic setting in November 1st when the usual suspects realize that they may have to go on the typical CoFC 5 year plan and their parents have to fork out for the same classes again after they beat their kids ass. Party on Bruh!!

Re: “Dimitri Cherny takes on Mark Sanford—again

I was lucky enough to meet Dimitri Cherny at a Sun City rally, then a week later host him in July for a weekend. Learning about how he plans to work FOR the citizens of SC , but also the citizens of the United States is what he's about. Dimitri "GETS IT" and how the middle class has been hit and hit hard.. The poor among us have also been hit hard with services and programs they depend on just to sustain themselves being cut or eliminated. He's clear, knows what needs to be done and is ready to roll up his sleeves and GET it DONE for all of us. Sanford as Governor was an embarrassment, as a US Congressman he's doing NOTHING to make life better for the people of SC...

Re: “Margo Venomous, tattoo artist

Margo Venomous is a true artist. I have 3 tattoos from her, all in the last year. One in January, one in May, and one in July. My next one is scheduled for October. She always listens to your ideas and counters with ideas of her own if she thinks it'll look better a certain way or work better on certain parts of your body. She really cares about what she does and what she puts on your body and where it goes. I have been completely and utterly blown away by what she has come up with all three times and I can't wait to see what she does with the new one. Margo Venomous is forever my tattoo artist.

Re: “Charleston diners, stop asking servers this question

So from what region of Spain was this chip on your shoulder harvested? You sound like a pretentious asshole. How are those health benefits and 401K working out for you?

Re: “Charleston diners, stop asking servers this question

I have been in F&B for 40 years now, with some detours along the way, and I've done everything from serving, shift manager, store manager, operation manager, bartender- you get the picture. My first server gig was at a Jewish Deli in a North Shore Suburb of Chicago, and I started on my 15th Birthday! I also lived in this town, a very affluent suburb, and attended one of the finest school systems in the nation. I am, however, learning disabled, and formal education was a challenge for me. But I am very intelligent. But- the restaurant bug bit me deep, and festered into a real passion for all things SERVICE! I made great money, ($150 for Sat/Sun Breakfast shifts in 1975 at the deli!!) earned the respect of my peers and my superiors, was asked at all levels to climb the ladder, which I did. But- I my ❤️ was always a server, providing MY personal best, even if the other aspects of the restaurant were not up to snuff. I have always thought of myself as a professional. But- like the writer- I was often questioned similarly and treated as a lesser person. And it is very humiliating sometimes.
So please ask yourself this the next time you dine out; would I rather have a server that thinks of his or herself as a professional, providing the expert service I expect, one who has a sense of pride in themselves, or one that thinks of himself as a lowlife, one that doesn't matter? And to the F&B folks reading this; are YOU treating your current employment situation with pride in yourself, and the service you provide? If not, do not be disappointed in your recompense, as people will respond in kind; not always, but we should still have pride in ourselves.
