Re: “Sermet's to be replaced with Gentry Bar by Southern Charm's JD Madison

I would love some information regarding the music at the closing of Sermet /opening of Gentry Bar. What is the name of the group playing the music that night? What was that last song they played (loved it)? Is that a dance done mostly in SC or the south, slow dancing then everyone stops to clap in time to the music? I've not seen that done before and would love more information on all. Thank you.

Re: “Why South Carolina needs more of the North's best doughy export, Dunkin' Donuts

I grew up on Dunkin'. After I was introduced to Krispy by a neighbor soon after I moved to Charleston, I have never looked back.
I had 2 dogs on daily meds. Even they would only take their pills surrounded by a piece of hlazed donut. Once I could fund them nowhere. Even the bakery on Savannah Hwy had sold the last dozen. I returned home with glazed crullers. The dogs spit them out- too cakey.
Krispy Kreme is THE best!!!

@Priscilla, for the express shops they typically have a large kitchen that provides all their area stores with fresh, hot donuts every morning. they're not delivered frozen to any of the shops. this would destroy the yeast and they wouldn't rise properly.

Please take yourself and terrible Dunkin' Donuts back to where you came from. That place is awful and a perfect example of bland s**t food from yankeeland.

If I were jaded and pessimistic I might say that offering a restauranteur free good PR for cutting his overhead is reason enough to join the campaign, but I'm not

Priscilla, the next time you visit a Dunkin Donuts(probably your first) take a peek through the kitchen door and notice the baking materials.
As for Krispy Kreme, I suppose they're not bad if what you like is a handful of Crisco dipped in processed white sugar.

Re: “UPDATE: 70+ Charleston restaurants have signed on to the Strawless Summer Challenge

Just an observation and a question, if you combine the number of plastics straws used at all the fast food restaurants and gas station markets with fountain drinks in the area, wouldn't they overwhelm by the thousands those used at all these local places listed? Was there any attempt to approach those type of establishments to get them to participate or is this just another case of virtue signalling?

To Debbie Haynes,
that sounds like a good, fun idea, but the taste of the Twizzler may not go well with the drink of the customer's choice.
I think the use of paper straws would work well, though they don't last long is liquid.

I agree that we need more Dunkins but not for the donuts - for their coffee. Best ever!

Re: “Why South Carolina needs more of the North's best doughy export, Dunkin' Donuts

I have been told by a reliable baker that Dunkin Donuts are shipped to their location frozen and then they are heated in an oven. If they were fried at each location they would be more like a good yeast raised donut from the North, which is a very good donut.

Krispy Kreme donuts are made fresh at each location; unfortunately, they are as you said, a sugar overload.

Basically, growing up, it was whatever donut you had available in your area that helps to form your like/dislike for a particular donut.

Re: “Halls Chophouse, Taco Boy opening in Summerville's Nexton neighborhood

Ima, Mike, dont bother William Herron is not a real person, most likely an employee of Halls. Notice its his first comment when you click his profile and he just signed up for an account. Every time a real local person says something about Halls on City Paper that doesnt fit in with how great Halls is you get one of these people with one or 2 comments who recently signed up to post something glowing about Halls. If you go to the main reviews about Halls, its discussed there and you see the same pattern.

Re: “Halls Chophouse, Taco Boy opening in Summerville's Nexton neighborhood

Oh geez, please not Halls, I thought that super eccentric family was confined to downtown. William Herron its been my experience that locals who can afford it stay away from Halls because of the fake... family and awful rude bar crowd that precludes you from even having a conversation in there after being charged hand and fist. Out of towners and posers like you who think its the cool place to be are who you will find there. The smart money in Charleston blacklisted themselves from that place along time ago.
