Fri, 24 Nov 2017 15:27:00 -0500

Expect the unexpected is generally how we approach everything from the team behind Xiao Bao Biscuit. From XBB's monkey mural to its much beloved mapo dou fu, owners Joshua Walker, Duolan Li, and Joey Ryan take chances, yet always seem to nail it. more…

Around 11:30 p.m. Thanksgiving Day, Charleston and James Island Fire Departments, Charleston County EMS, and Charleston PD were dispatched to James Island's Island Plaza shopping center after a police officer reported smoke coming from the building.

Fri, 24 Nov 2017 09:00:00 -0500

Holy Black Friday Charleston. This weekend roundup is about to blow. your. mind. At least, we hope so. Here's the deal — there's a LOT of stuff going on around town. We've pared this list down to some of the events we think are truly special, but if you want the whole shebang, just cruise our online calendar.

A transcription software ranked Nikki Haley as the best political speaker

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 16:37:00 -0500

U.N. ambassador and former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley is now our de facto spokesperson in the event of any robot/alien invasions.

That's because Trint, a company that specializes in audio transcription services popular with journalists, ranked her as the most comprehensible orator in a list of real and fictional U.S. politicians, according to The State.

The A.I. service rated the politicos based on their enunciation, pace of speech, and complexity of words, meaning that Haley won her 99.48 percent accuracy rate thanks to the simplicity of her language.

President Trump came in at number 11 with a word error rate — the number of words the software could not interpret correctly at first try — slightly above two percent, still four spots ahead of the worst speaker: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, with a word error rate of almost five percent.

“Trump comes out 99.5% correct, because he uses small words and speaks slowly,” Trint CEO Jeffrey Kofman told Quartz in March when describing Trump's Jan. 31 Supreme Court nomination speech. more…

PURE Theatre's Fully Committed opens Fri. Dec. 8

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 16:37:00 -0500

Fourteen years after the southeast regional premiere of Becky Mode's Fully Committed at PURE Theatre, this frenetic and hilarious production will run for the final time on PURE's King St. stage.

One of PURE’s most frequently requested plays (and a production that pops up at quite a few local venues), Fully Committed follows the life of Sam Peliczowski, an "out-of-work actor who mans the red-hot reservation line at Manhattan's number-one restaurant."

Peliczowski is played by PURE co-founder and core ensemble member Rodney Lee Rogers, who has taken on the tasking role multiple times. more…

Thanksgiving was once thought to be a Yankee plot against Southern slavery

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 16:31:00 -0500

As far as holidays go these days, Thanksgiving seems to be a mostly-agreed upon positive thing. But the imported pilgrim dinner wasn't exactly something that Southerners warmed to right away.

For years leading up to the Civil War, some Southerners were outright skeptical of the "theatrical national claptrap" known as Thanksgiving, which Southern politicians saw as a Northern effort to further the cause of abolition.

From CP contributor Robert Moss' 2014 write-up in Serious Eats:

1 Broad Street restaurant will unlock its doors Sun. Nov. 26

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 16:30:00 -0500

Co-owner Mike Ray says it's official: 1 Broad Street restaurant will open for brunch this Sun. Nov. 26.

We got wind of the news via 1 Broad's Instagram where the restaurant posted a picture today of its recently acquired permits. more…

Check out Columbia City Ballet's 50th anniversary production of Nutcracker next Friday

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 15:36:00 -0500

The Columbia City Ballet (they go by The South Carolina Ballet when they're touring, FYI) has been producing The Nutcracker for 50 years now — that's half a century, y'all. The show, with executive and artistic director William Starrett at the helm, heads to Sottile Theater for one night, Fri. more…

DC's Justice League is moderately entertaining

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 14:56:00 -0500

The opening scene in Justice League is, in a word, lame. Batman (Ben Affleck) stops a petty criminal, and then uses the criminal as bait to draw in a large mosquito-looking demon. The sequence is dark, cartoonish, and doesn't look impressive at all.

S.C. Department of Public Safety cracking down on texting and driving over Thanksgiving

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 12:18:00 -0500

William Dudley Gregorie and Harry Griffin come out on top in Charleston City Council runoffs

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 09:52:00 -0500

Only one Charleston City Council incumbent was spared by the time Tuesday's runoff results were announced, and that lucky guy is William Dudley Gregorie.

Gregorie, who was first elected in February 2009, will serve a third term representing District 6 after capturing 32 more votes against challenger Amy Brennan, according to the initial Charleston County reports.

District 6 represents parts of the peninsula and James Island.

In District 10, 22-year-old Citadel graduate Harry J. Griffin beat Summer Massey by 99 votes for the West Ashley seat.

Voter turnout hovered a little over nine percent in the runoff, which was scheduled after candidates failed to clear the 50-percent-plus-one hurdle on Nov. 7.

When you go to the ballpark, especially the Joe, your food options are no longer limited to hot dogs and peanuts and Cracker Jacks (although there's something to be said for these classic staples). No, now when you go watch your fave players batter up, you can indulge in everything from duck wing ramen to Cracker Jack cotton candy burgers.   [content-1]Travel Channel's Food Paradise realizes the importance of showcasing decadent oddities, and will be featuring the RiverDogs' creative treats on their Minor League Baseball episode airing this Sun. more…

Men accused of sexual misconduct are incapable of owning their actions

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 04:00:00 -0500

I was flipping through the radio last week, trying to find something between the static and the mattress commercials. I stumbled upon Bubba the Love Sponge on 98 Rock. My two dogs, innocent mounds of fur nosing me from the back seat, jumped when I responded to just a few moments of the show with, "What the fuck?"

Resistance movement must fight hypocrisy to survive

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 04:00:00 -0500

Steve Bannon's recent visit to Charleston as the guest speaker for the Citadel Republicans' annual Patriot Dinner sparked a lot of controversy for good reason. He is the proclaimed leader of the "Alt-Right" movement which is just a more socially acceptable term for white supremacy.

How Catherine Templeton uses social media to stir up the red meat base

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 04:00:00 -0500

When Catherine Templeton is elected the 118th governor of South Carolina, one question and one question alone remains: will she move to Columbia or demand that the Governor's Mansion be moved to Charleston?

Blotter: Don't poop where you sleep

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 04:00:00 -0500

Authorities obtained video of a man defecating in front of a church, moving the fecal matter with his own hands, and resting his head to sleep in the same area where he initially did his business. There is no punch line, as we are still processing what this means.

Tricounty Family Ministries' Christmas Brunch needs your help

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 04:00:00 -0500

Bundled in knit hats and rain-soaked jackets, the line of people snaked around Tricounty Family Ministries' cafeteria past folding tables and out the door down Rivers Avenue.

Southern Roots Smokehouse in Park Circle lacks the heat to compete

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 04:00:00 -0500

The restaurant business is very, very difficult. It demands the right combination of location, ownership, and staff, not to mention menu, ambiance, and dozens of other intangibles. Although it's hard to put a finger on the exact elements that will lead to success, sometimes it's pretty darn easy to spot the fixings for disaster.

The Southern's small works show, Get Well Soon, is this year's cure for seasonal affective disorder

Wed, 22 Nov 2017 04:00:00 -0500

The Southern, a contemporary art gallery tucked behind a Pizza Hut, standing tall in a sea of construction, is a heartening site. The gallery itself is an affront to the mass consumerism taking place, daily, along upper King Street.
