My husband and I stopped in to Cypress for a cocktail and an appetizer prior to our reservation at Blossom for Restaurant Week, the bartender had no problem expressing his negative opinion of restaurant week. I understand the discontent at having lower total sales therefore lower tips, but for the hour that my husband and I were at his bar we were the only customers so due to Restaurant Week, the bartender made a bonus $10 tip ($35 check) off of people that would not have been there on a normal Sunday evening. Every dollar counts, not just for those receiving the tips, but for those giving the tips as well.
Restaurant Week gives us a chance to try something different, and a good reason to treat ourselves. If you feel that the restaurant is not being properly showcased with the special menu, speak up. I have to believe that the star chefs of Charleston do not want their Restaurant Week menus to be their dirty little secrets. Restaurant Week is a chance for locals to get out and try something new, why not showcase your best dishes on these menus? I would not find a smaller portion of your award winning dish unreasonable when the special three course menu is the same price as a regular entree.

Affordable, but nothing was tasty enough that would make me want to eat here again. I had the shellfish over grits, my MIL and I shared the fried green tomatoes, and my husband had the steak and eggs, never have I experienced such plate envy as I did when I tasted his southern fried steak with red-eye gravy. The shellfish and grits was bland, the lobster like rubber and the lonely scallop was gritty and the friend green tomatoes were like hockey pucks. I was looking forward to a delicious Sunday brunch with my family, although not delicious, the service was spot on and the atmosphere was pleasant.
The $36 reduction (on average) in the SNAP benefit is, on average, the increase in SS deductions realized in payroll taxes after that temporary reduction expired. Everyone is affected by the expiration of the Bush tax cuts.
10am - 3pm in the Dillard's court tomorrow.
addisonsm: the IT department made a suggestion for security that would have cost (and someone correct me if I am wrong) $25000. Management decided not to spend the money.
I experienced the Boone Hall Fright Night in 2008, The House that Saw Built and the other two attractions. I cried like a baby I was so scared. I screamed to the point of losing my voice. By the last half of the second "house" I buried my face in my Mom's hoody and didn't look up until we were out. It was my 30th birthday, I will never, ever go to Fright Night again. That being said, it was THE BEST "haunted" houses and hayride I have every experienced. This team really knows how to make nightmares a reality.
