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: “Royall Ace Hardware

The neighborhood hardware stores, especially Royal, gives customer service. That is lacking in most big-box stores. Even if a few cents more, the knowledge of the employees is worth it.

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: “The Agenda: Big spending by appointed MUSC board; Milo coming to Clemson; Chemicals seized in Chs. port

It would be such a shame if corruption and scandal is uncovered at MUSC. It's such a great hospital and does so much that's good for so many! It would just be sad....

I challenge Hunt to a debate about the topic.

Re: “Calling bullshit on Charleston's friendliest city designation

I believe Charleston is a beautiful lovely city rich in history and traditions. I love the cobblestone streets and the smell from the various restaurants throughout the city. People are polite and receptive to a greeting. College students gather on streets and talk. Friends walk down King Street shopping and drinking their Starbucks. Families walk downtown on Second Sunday walking their dogs and eating Popsicles from King of Pops. The farmers market breathes fun, fresh, and local. So, friendly, yes.

Whether or not Charleston is inclusive or exclusive is another question. Whether or not Charleston is kind and forgiving is another question. Whether or not Charleston is morphing into a more commercial city is another question. Whether or not Charleston is genuine or not is another question. Whether or not Charleston is healthy or not is another question.

We can always work harder to make our city better. For both those who live and work here and for those who visit.

Re: “Calling bullshit on Charleston's friendliest city designation

This place is horrid. People will come to see that and the housing bubble will pop. Who knows the fate of this overcrowded, over-talked swamp after that. What happens when the rich flee?

Re: “Calling bullshit on Charleston's friendliest city designation

I'm from CT as well & totally agree with Erin. I was floored early on when a black woman held open a door for me & greeted me good morning!

I was quite upset when I first read this article. I attacked the author personally, which I apologize for.

Re: “Calling bullshit on Charleston's friendliest city designation

Quite the bitter article. We moved here from CT. If you wanna REALLY see unfriendly, visit there. Charleston (Mount Pleasant areas), are very friendly, no place is a perfect uptopia, but coming from the Northeast, NYC regions... People don't even make eye contact there and the cashiers don't even look at you, let alone say hello. Since we have arrived in SC, we have had conversations in local shops, nice small talk at check out lines, people DEFINITELY smile more and are much more patient and the schools are phenomenal. It's perspective, and it sounds like the author of this article may have lost that a bit. No matter where you live, it's your appreciation and perspectives that make it "home". Sounds like you may need to spend time in an actual under served area to really appreciate the charm, albeit not perfection, of Charleston and it's surrounding areas.
