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.

-- I certainly hope so! During the 70s and 80s in Charleston, we may not have had a booming economy but our quality of life was MUCH better!
This will be the lure of choice for child predators.
Amazing - Chris Haire actually made it through an entire column without dropping the F-bomb or other obscenities!
The decline of Gullah / Geechee speech, like the demise of the Charleston Brogue, is primarily caused by television and mass media saturation - not gentrification. All over the USA, accents are being homogenized out of existence. Whether Smith Island, VA, the Outer Banks of NC, McClellanville, Charleston, even New Yawk - it's the same everywhere.
This phenomenon is by no means limited to Charleston!
Replicating the Information Technology department alone would be enormously expensive.
Can you imagine the price tab for building out multiple new data centers to house the necessary servers, routers, firewalls, content filters, etc. etc.? That cost alone makes this a ridiculous idea.
