If you've been shaking your head (in your fully powered house) and mumbling "a whole lotta nothin!" about this damn hurricane, you and the rest of the city deserve some strong Bloody Marys and buttery biscuits. Lots of restaurants have, understandably, run out of food over the past few days. The following spots (other than WaHo) still have some eats and are opening before noon— keep in mind menus and service may be limited so be patient and tip your ass off — and they're trying to Sunday Funday. Check out our full list of restaurant openings here, and expect most everything to transition to normal in the next couple of days.

Yes, Charleston-area Waffle Houses remain open with limited menu ahead of Florence

"Yes we are open with a limited menu so come on in!"

We're starving. We don't want the saltine crackers or the date bites or the can of beans. We want the All-Star Special and we want it hot.

As you've likely heard by now, when Waffle House closes, that mean's shit is getting real.  But what about when Waffle House is open with a limited menu?

We don't know what that means, honestly, and with the way this hurricane is acting — tremendously big and tremendously wet and tremendously unpredictable — it feels pretty par for the course.

The Savannah Hwy. Waffle House just over the bridge in West Ashley remains open — when we called this morning they didn't even offer a hello, but instead answered with "yes we are open with a limited menu so come on in!" And from what we've seen, many local WaHos remain open as the clouds roll in.

Their limited menu has the All-Star Special, so you don't really need to know anything else. See the full (limited) offerings below, and god speed.

Holy City and Evo Pizzeria announce name for new downtown pizza-pub

Park Circle Power Couple

Posted by Mary Scott Hardaway on Tue, Sep 11, 2018 at 9:56 AM

Last night at Evo Pizzeria and Holy City Brewing's Charleston Beer Week event in Park Circle, the duo announced the name of their new downtown location: Baker and Brewer.

When we chatted with the guys from EVO and HCB in July about the 94 Stuart St. spot in the old Desano's, the pizzeria's co-founder Ricky Hacker said, "We've been joking around that maybe the community will come up with something." Whether the name chosen by the community or the pizza slingers and beer makers, we can't say. We do know we'll lovingly call it BABs for now, and cross our fingers for that projected early 2019 opening. Until then, keep tabs on HCB's new and improved brewing location in the works at 1021 Aragon Ave, just south of Park Circle.
