Nanobeerz - you are correct regarding Smoky Oak's food. It is poor - pretty much everything on the menu is underwhelming. Among other mistakes: they use far too much sugar in all their cornbread, batter, etc.
The BBQ is poor to put it mildly.
But I find their beer selection pretty good - you kind of need to know which of the taps are new and which ones are old. But they have a nice selection of tall boy bottles too - things like Rogue Chocolate Stout, etc.
This pretty much sums up their food:
Last few times I have been to Smoky Oak to have a beer with friends, I stopped at Barberito's for a burrito first.

The Peddlers license requirement was enacted IN RESPONSE to unruly juveniles stealing palmettos (and damaging people's trees), their threatening behavior to get people to buy their palmetto roses, and other problems.
It may be too bad that some "bad eggs" made things harder on their well-behaved fellow peddlers, but the response was warranted.
I suggest all the complainers that have recently arrived "from off" do some research in the City Paper and Post and Courier archives if they deny that many peddlers were a public problem!
wjhamilton29464 - we DO remember people. There are these things called history books, newspapers, genealogy records, etc. etc. Permanently keeping gravesites and headstones for every human that ever lived and died is a ridiculous (and ultimately unattainable) goal.
Humans are just monkeys draped in clothing. Continually wasting the efforts and resources of the living over lifeless detritus is one of MANY examples of this. Come to think of it - even monkeys aren't that stupid.
And many living creatures and their habitat were doubtless destroyed by the manicuring frenzy that was described...
Of course, this whole graveyard / obsession over the dead thing springs from that great well of stupidity and superstition called organized religion...
"a nearby patch of unsightly overgrowth was tamed into a flower bed"
The native wildlife preferred the "unsightly overgrowth".
Worst Pad Thai in town! Bland, tasteless, and almost completely lacking any vegetables. First and last time I eat there...
What worthless tripe. And once again, peppered with obscenities that add nothing to the piece.
Why in the world does Charleston City Paper continue to give this lamer a megaphone?
Insipid subject matter + juvenile writing style = garbage.
