Re: “Farm to Plate Picnic

We had such a great time auctioning off pies for SLOW FOODS at this great farm. Walking in the fields alone with a cold beverage was a treat.

Re: “Guests go all out, vodka shots flow, and Anita Zucker takes to the dance floor at Tatyana's Ball

How very wonderful to see this event go back to its roots as a dinner and dance.

Re: “Bull Street Gourmet locks its doors for good today

There was a study conducted under the auspices of, I think, the City of Charleston and perhaps Historic Charleston Foundation many years ago about the three parts of King Street and what types of businesses were missing in each "zone." South of Market, South of Calhoun and North of Calhoun were identified. Today, we look at upper Kingt and never think about how diverse it is with types of business, food and drink. It did not just happen that way - that is for sure. Through proper planning on the part of the city and very smart developers (and I use that word in the kindest of ways) this blend and mix took great calculation. The vision survived the second worst economic disaster this country has seen in its' existence. Upper King made it. The condominiums at the Cigar Factory did not! This crafting the "ethnic food" restaurants North of Calhoun was brilliant. You boys know who you are.

A missing part for the neighbors and the visitors South of Market on King was the need for refreshments, light groceries; and prepared foods. There was a great sandwich shop for years on the west side of King Street south of Market across from the South Carolina Library Society which featured exceptional soups and sandwiches. Sadly, the rent made it simple a non-profitable venture as I recall.

Justin Coaxall always did it right at Bull Street Gourmet and I do hope that another establishment who cares for the neighborhood, like the people who actually took over the old Bull Street Gourmet, has done. It is the yang of Capitalism and Charleston is very fortunate that many multi-generational families have chosen to keep local business in their buildings versus chasing the gold, which I certain can understand.

It is with that sense of community that another little spot will open and a young couple will work hard to live their dream, as we have seen so many times in this city with Scott and Ruth, Serge and Geraldstine, Joanne and Mickey, Pasqual and Penelope, Massimiliano and Natasha, and now Caitlin and Michael and Paul and Marguerite.

Re: “Aquarium worker allegedly tries to sabotage life-support systems

There is a reason we had pirates hung on the Battery. For this person, I would suggest a public whipping for all to see. To hurt those animals in the tank is a horror.

Re: “Despite fire alarm interruption, L.A. Dance Project “harbored” audiences

The staff at the Gaillard did a stellar job to get everyone out of the building and into a safe place in a calm and orderly fashion...and then back in. These volunteers obviously have been well trained. In addition, the dancers were so very gracious about it. I had the chance to meet many of them later that evening and they responded so positively about it all. Three cheers for the volunteer staff and those who trained them.

Re: “Leaf to become Michael Toscano's Le Farfalle

The service level that Cole Erdman and his servers/bar staff brought to Charleston for a neighborhood bar is second to none. Everyone feels at home at the bar. Locals gather for events. The numerous large groups of families that have luncheons and dinners there in the "city casual" is huge. Besides private clubs, how many places can you say that about in a non "top listed" restaurant?
The giving back to the community side that Erdman has shown sets the bar for a restaurant of that style. So many people in the food and beverage industry call it home. LEAF will be missed and Charleston is very fortunate to have 24 staff people who will filter into other locations in our city.
