New Growth

Magnolia Gardens’ ‘Camellia Man’ retiring after 14 years BY SKYLER BALDWIN

CHARLESTON CITY PAPER 01.06.2021

Tom Johnson, director of gardens at Magnolia Plantation, is retiring from his role in Charleston and readying his return to his native Georgia after more than a decade of work on one of the nation’s only remaining romantic gardens.

4

Magnolia owner Drayton Hastie Jr. spent two years making trips from his home in Charleston to Georgia starting in 2007, trying to lure Johnson and his wife, Mary Ann, to Charleston’s Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. At the time, Johnson was a national horticulturalist for the American Camellia Society. Unfortunately for Johnson, who initially rebuffed the requests, Hastie found the gardener’s weakness: asking for help. “For the next 14 years, we worked with the family to develop the gardens to where they are today — to put Magnolia back on the national stage,” Johnson said. Johnson spent his formative years studying plant propagation in school. But, his first major job was working on the gardens at the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library in Atlanta. After finishing his work there and moving to the American Camellia Society, Hastie found him. “I fell in love with Magnolia the first time I walked through the gardens,” Johnson said. “I was in my mid-40s. That’s when a man realizes there’s more behind you than there is in front of you, and in that moment, I knew that the restoration of the gardens would consume the rest of my career.” He was right. Throughout his course as what he jokingly called the last American romantic gardener, Johnson enlisted help from gardens across Europe and the rest of the globe, tracking down historic and ancient plant material to

restore the gardens at Magnolia. The restoration aimed at taking Magnolia back to Drayton family’s 1676 plan. The modern landscape at Magnolia includes the historical work of enslaved Africans on the plantation, maintained since the grounds opened to the public in the 1870s. Today, Magnolia is among the oldest public gardens in the nation, making the restoration a necessity to Johnson. “We Americans like everything new and improved,” he said. “So, a lot of the older plant material had been gone and replaced with newer varieties … Taking these newer varieties back to the older ones truly makes this a historic garden once again.” Many of those historic plants were camellias, a flower that blooms in the dead of winter. Now, the gardens comprise a collection of 27,000 plants, according to Southern Living. The plants weren’t the only things that Johnson had to adapt to in Charleston. As tourism exploded in Charleston, Magnolia became a popular destination for families. “I was unprepared for how popular Magnolia would be,” he said. “Once we started restoring the gardens and started putting it back on the national stage, the volume of tourists — we were looking at up to 5,000 people a day.” Then, COVID-19 grinded that growth to a screeching halt. Johnson said that it was actually a blessing in disguise in some ways. “We were on an unstable growth path,” he said. “COVID slowed us down so we could

reevaluate. It got so bad we were having to close the gates in the middle of the day because we were out of parking.” But even as the pandemic was taking its toll on tourism, Johnson was already plotting his retirement. But he wanted to see the gardens through the crisis. “We’ve done it,” Johnson said. “Magnolia came out of the pandemic quicker and more solvent than any other garden in America. We have actually filled the reserves back up again, and we are ready for the new year.”

Though the pandemic isn’t over, it seems like Magnolia has made it through the worst, and Johnson is ready to move on. Johnson plans to spend retirement in Georgia growing native plants with his friend and colleague Ernest Koone, a top native plantsmen who has been vying for Johnson’s involvement in a plant nursery. “It’s funny,” Johnson said. “I went to school to learn how to grow plants, and now, I get to end my career the way I always wanted to start it.”

SC FARMERS CAN NOW APPLY TO GROW HEMP IN 2021

LEGISLATURE POISED TO TACKLE MULTIPLE ISSUES AMIDST PANDEMIC

6

The typically conservative S.C. General Assembly will be conservative with the coronavirus pandemic when the 2021 session opens, particularly after at least two members apparently contracted the disease in end-of-the-year organizational meetings. The virus will control the tempo of the legislature, said Senate President Harvey Peeler, R-Gaffney. “COVID-19 will be the boss,” he said. “The state Senate is not a bunch of scaredy-cats, but we are going to continue to act responsibly, so that will be on everyone’s mind — this virus and how it affects the state. “The whole COVID situation has an Alamo feeling to it, meaning we’re fighting this virus while waiting on the vaccine to arrive and save the day,” he said. House Speaker Jay Lucas, R-Darlington, said despite the uncertainty of what’s ahead with the virus, he’s looking forward to dealing with unfinished business of the 2020 session cut short by the pandemic. “While last year was like nothing I have ever seen in my 22 years in the House, I am confident that we will continue to do the work of the people of this state in a safe and productive manner, even if some things may look different,” Lucas told Statehouse Report, City Paper’s sister publication. In the early days of the session, Statehouse insiders also predict in-person meetings in the House and Senate chambers will be limited early with much legislative work done by videoconferences, which have been used successfully since the summer. As members of the General Assembly get vaccinated, more in-person meetings should occur. Outgoing Black Caucus Chairman Jerry Govan, D-Orangeburg, said the COVID-19 pandemic also will change the landscape of the legislative body, weighing on everything from debates on the economy and health care to education and how government works. “I think the most plausible and prudent thing for the state to do is to thoroughly ascertain where we are as a state and devise a four-, eight- and 12-month plan in response to the ebb and flow of the pandemic, which has clearly gotten worse and is out out of control even as we now have multiple sources of the vaccine in play,” he said. “The problem is that we do not have a uniform logistical system set up for distribution which in my opinion should be handled at the federal level. “Therefore, the top priorities for the General Assembly must be ensuring that our health care system is both efficient and fair, preserving our economy — particularly small businesses — and diversification of our educational system that ensures that all children learn.” —Andy Brack, Rodney Welch

The South Carolina Department of Agriculture (SCDA) is now accepting applications for hemp farming permits for the 2021 growing season through Feb. 28. South Carolina’s Hemp Farming Program grew from 20 farmers in 2018 to 265 farmers in 2020, and the program has changed each year as state and federal laws are updated, according to the SCDA. Industrial hemp has a variety of uses, from textiles and fibers to fuel and food products. Federal officials signed off on South Carolina’s State Hemp Plan in April 2020, and the SCDA expects to continue into 2021. Those interested in receiving a South Carolina hemp farming permit must meet the following requirements:

• Provide proof of state residency. • Receive a criminal background check. • Provide a Farm Service Agency farm number. • Pay a $100 nonrefundable application fee and a $1,000 permit fee.

• Provide GPS coordinates of all locations on which hemp will be grown.

• Submit application and all required materials by the Feb. 28, 2021 deadline.

ICONIC CHARLESTON NEWSMAN HARVE JACOBS RETIRES

When Harve Jacobs showed up at your door, you knew it was time to answer some questions. After 40 years in journalism, the bulldog Charleston reporter announced on Dec. 30 he’s hanging up his press badge and heading into retirement. (He even gave up his spiffy @policereporter Twitter handle!) In a post on social media, Jacobs said he hoped to “relax and start some new adventures.” For some 15 years, City Paper readers named Jacobs the city’s Best Investigative Reporter for our annual Best of Charleston issue. Jacobs’ career in Charleston has spanned more than four decades. Starting as a reporter and news director on WCSC radio, Jacobs first reported for TV with Charleston’s WCBD-TV in 1987 before signing on with Live 5 News (WCSC-TV) in 1994. Reporters make a living out of learning something new every day, and this year was no exception for Jacobs. With the pandemic forcing even hard-nosed reporters to adapt, Jacobs described in the City Paper’s year-end issue how the adjustments impacted the tail end of his broadcast career: “I’ve only been allowed back into the [office] twice, for a flu shot and a COVID test. Soon, I was told I would no longer be allowed to ride with a news photographer to my daily news story because of the pandemic. I rarely ever had to drive a separate car and this was a huge change for me. That meant I could no longer write my story or look at my interviews until we stopped somewhere. It gave me a taste of what multimedia journalists have to do everyday, and I admire them for that.” Live 5’s station leader praised Jacobs for his long tenure. “Harve personifies the quality journalism and service to the Lowcountry which Live 5 News strives to achieve every single day,” said Dan Cates, WCSC-TV vice president and general manager. “We are grateful for his contributions and wish him the best of luck in the next chapter.” —Sam Spence

SC PARKS SAW 2020 VISITS INCREASE DURING PANDEMIC

Consumer surveys showed South Carolina’s Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism that state park traffic saw significant bumps during summer 2020 compared to 2019, despite a month-long closure in the early days of quarantine. “Despite being completely closed for over a month … visitation at parks since May has been up across the board,” said State Parks Director Paul McCormack. “We recognize the vital role our parks have played in giving visitors a chance to get away, even if just for a few hours.” Though the parks no longer track attendance, according to Communications Director Dawn Dawson-House, park managers and rangers noticed a higher number of visitors, and occupancy and revenue numbers are evidence of greater use in state parks. Campground occupancy was just shy of 62% in MayJune 2020 compared to 56.5% during the same period in 2019. (That’s including May, when parks were not fully open due to the quarantine.) Notably, state parks stayed popular longer as well, with occupancy hovering around 61% between July and November 2020. The number dropped to just below 49% during the same period in 2019. Cabin occupancy was up to 78.75% between July and November 2020 compared to only 65.5% a year earlier. “It has only been through the hard work of a dedicated team and the cooperation of an understanding public that we have been able to manage the crowds and provide the experiences and resources, that have for many, become a highlight of a stress-filled year,” McCormack said. —Skyler Baldwin

Five important local priorities for 2021

EDITORIAL

CHARLESTON CITY PAPER 01.06.2021

ith a new year, let’s double down on efforts to get real things done to make things better in the Charleston area. Here’s our new Charleston Checklist that we’ll bring up periodically to gauge how well local leaders are doing to meet outstanding needs: Engage in real racial conciliation. Just think of all that has happened to bring race to the forefront over the last year: George Floyd’s choking death by Minneapolis police created global outrage as Black Lives Matter mushroomed into a national outcry and fueled local confrontations. The John C. Calhoun statue at Marion Square then quickly came down, after years of stalling. These days, more people are engaging about race, but more needs to be done in the city where the Civil War began. It’s time for all local governments to make significant strides in racial reconciliation, not just mumble more and avert gazes. Be a national climate leader. There’s no reason why the city of Charleston and other local governments can’t become national leaders on climate change. Public officials need to spend less time quibbling and use the lessons of the Dutch Dialogues to make significant and real changes. They should also take a good look at whether a protective wall around the peninsula is really the smartest thing to do to shield downtown businesses and residences. (It seems fairly obvious to us that it’s not a complete barrier, as planned, which means water will get in and damaging floods will continue.) Build the North Charleston library. County voters passed a referendum years ago to build five new libraries

and renovate the others. So far, four have been built, but in North Charleston? There’s nothing but an empty field on Dorchester Road after years of neglect and an old library that’s aged past its expiration date. What’s mind-numbing is that the people in charge of county council in recent years have been from North Charleston! Let’s hope a refreshed Charleston County Council will be proactive in meeting its responsibilities and honoring the voters’ wishes. Fund more transportation alternatives. County leaders should completely abandon the never-say-die attitude for extending Interstate 526, a too-costly, wasteful project that will be out of date as soon as it is built. Instead, they should collaborate and develop innovative solutions to reconfigure traffic flows and steer people in new directions. Go big on funding more mass transit options, including trying to finish the 22-mile Lowcountry Rapid Transit system early and expanding it into West Ashley. Get along and get to work. Sometimes, it seems like various area governments compete for the title of being considered the most dysfunctional. For a while it was the school board, where bickering at endless meetings reached boiling points in recent years. Then came wasteful spending and coziness at county council. Interspersed have been elected officials not getting along in Mount Pleasant, Folly Beach, Sullivan’s Island, North Charleston and Charleston. Enough! Public officials need to work together, compromise and make progress instead of spinning wheels and wasting time.

On Aug. 27, I went to Mount Pleasant for my first COVID-19 vaccine trial appointment. I didn’t know what mRNA was at the time, or the difference between the Pfizer and Moderna vaccine trials, for that matter. I wasn’t nervous on the 15-minute drive from downtown to the Coastal Carolina Research Center, where I would soon join Phase 3 of Moderna’s coronavirus vaccine trial with 399 other local participants — in fact, I felt relieved. Thankful that there was progress and I had the chance to contribute. I can’t take credit for my decision to join the study — my fiancee, a medical student at MUSC, had been following vaccine development since the start of the pandemic and told me about the promising results from Moderna’s Phase 1 trial. After more research, we decided to sign up for Moderna’s Phase 3 trial together. This was a randomized, placebo-controlled trial which meant that half of the participants were randomly selected to receive two doses of a saline placebo, while the other half received two doses of the Moderna vaccine. Moderna’s version of the vaccine, like Pfizer’s, uses messenger RNA (mRNA) to instruct the body to recognize and build natural immunity to the coronavirus, specifically coronavirus As individuals, spike proteins, without giving the person COVID-19. These vaccines might be new, but this method has been researched for we must choose more than 30 years. to wear masks, I received a shot during that initial August visit, which social distance took approximately two hours. I felt no symptoms following and get vaccinated this visit, and I went back for my second dose on Wednesday, Sept. 23 at 5 p.m. The doctors informed us that the presence when given the of mild side effects like headache, muscle soreness and fatigue indicates the vaccine is working, as your immune system opportunity. readies itself for battle against the virus. I woke up the next morning with a sore arm and low fever but felt completely normal within 24 hours. After both appointments, I was monitored by doctors through phone calls and daily questionnaires on an iPhone application. I still do these questionnaires weekly and receive a follow-up call once a month. Participants in the trial received a stipend for their involvement. I don’t know if I was vaccinated or not — when I called the study coordinator last month, I was informed we would find out in January. What happens next for myself and other trial participants will be determined in the coming weeks, but it’s likely that the placebo group will have the option to get vaccinated. If this is the case and I find out I’m in this group, I will get the vaccine the second it’s available to me. Our nation and state must get behind approved COVID-19 vaccines — with high efficacy rates, minimal side effects and backing from our government and national health authorities, the results speak for themselves. I feel even more confident in their safety and efficacy after being part of the remarkable efforts it took to develop them. When I think about what approved vaccines could mean for our country, I think about my grandmother, who spent Thanksgiving and Christmas by herself after hosting our entire family each of the 30 years I’ve been alive, and my 93-year-old great-grandmother, who lives alone in Indiana. I think about the countless South Carolinians who have lost loved ones during this pandemic. South Carolina’s public health is in the hands of each and every one of us. As individuals, we must choose to wear masks, social distance and get vaccinated when given the opportunity. Make these choices for yourself, but also to protect the elderly and minority populations who have been hit hardest by this virus.

BY SKYLER BALDWIN and HEATH ELLISON ILLUSTRATIONS BY STEVE STEGELIN Charleston Police Department had no shortage of outlandish reports throughout the even-more-outlandish year of 2020. From folks who just can’t take a hint (or don’t care) when it comes to public intoxication to those attempting to open holes into other dimensions through the city’s sewer, these officers had their hands full. This week, we sifted through hundreds of those reports to wrap them all up in an all-new Best of Blotter, 2020 edition. —Skyler Baldwin The Best of Blotter is taken from reports filed with Charleston Police Department throughout 2020. No one described in this section had been found guilty as of the time we originally reported it, just unlucky.

One man wearing a painted vest covered with anarchy symbols, peace signs and the phrase, “Do crime”, was surprised when officers approached, saying he matched the description of a suspected vandal. The man at first denied involvement, but later admitted to painting a white anarchy symbol on a wooden post. What a twist. A West Ashley man had his Yeti cooler stolen from the back of his truck and later saw it for sale on Facebook Marketplace. He knew it was his cooler based on the color, the dirt and that it was listed for sale with eight cans of Miller Lite still inside. A woman who got engaged to a man after knowing him for one day (she showed responding officers the ring) loaned her new fiancé her car. He returned neither the car nor her phone calls. Never underestimate the lengths to which people go for a 2014 Hyundai Sonata.

CHARLESTON CITY PAPER 01.06.2021

After pulling over a man near Folly Road, officers said the driver of a truck who was straddling both lanes of traffic and swaying back and forth in the roadway said, “I was being dumb,” and that he “did a mistake.”

10

The “bejesus” was scared out of a Johns Island woman when she discovered a “boulder” in her backyard. Officers advised that the rock was approximately 12 inches long and 6 inches wide. Johns Island is coming for your throne of bizarre police complaints, Daniel Island. Police were alerted to a woman at a West Ashley bar screaming and flipping tables over. Officers noted that this resulted in a “ruined experience for several patrons.” We also hate when the experience of a dark dive bar is ruined by things that usually happen in dark dive bars. On three separate occasions over a few weeks, a golf club was used to break through a car’s window and the club was left inside the vehicle. Further research shows a typical set contains 12 clubs, which means we have about nine weeks left. A man’s credit card was reported stolen after the card was used by the suspected thief to order DoorDash from a popular fast food restaurant. At least the thief is complying with social distancing guidelines.

After a suspected drunk driver horrifically failed a field test sobriety test, the officer asked if he had been drinking in the car. The driver replied, “Drink a little.” OK there, Yoda. You’ve clearly had more than a little. A woman who previously trespassed at a downtown fast food joint made her grand reappearance, panhandling in the drivethru line near the main entrance. Customers were reportedly disturbed by her presence, probably due to her bold fashion choice, a black leather jacket and T-shirt, with no pants or underwear.


A West Ashley convenience store manager watched as a man tugged on the locked doors at the front entrance, breaking the lock and forcing a door open. He then walked into the store like this was totally ordinary. We’re pretty sure this person just witnessed an early scene in a superhero movie in real life. An officer claimed to be able to identify the smell of alcohol due to his “prior training, knowledge and experience.” Reporter’s note: Maybe I should become a cop? Imagine you’re invited over to see your sister’s newborn. Pretty cool, right? Now imagine you’re invited over to see your sister’s baby, but steal a phone and Chromebook while you’re over there. That’s what one West Ashley woman accused her brother of doing. He’s probably just trying to minimize the kid’s screen time.

A West Ashley driver reportedly fell asleep in the middle of her first attempt at the balance portion of the field sobriety test. She later told officers she had taken a large amount of allergy medication before getting behind the wheel. Something tells us it snot the allergies.

In a James Island parking lot, officers found a man next to a flipped over go-kart. He had scratches all over his legs and a bone sticking out of his arm, according to police. The victim was 50 years old. Who says adults don’t know how to have fun?

After being detained for driving under the influence, a man described his drunkenness quite eloquently, saying that on a scale of one to 10, one being sober and 10 being highly intoxicated, he was a solid four. But officers know: If you say you’re a four, you’re probably closer to an eight. At a downtown clothing store, a woman was found with a bag of marijuana in her purse after knocking a display of dresses onto the ground. She was acting erratic, according to the report, telling officers that she was “looking for a wedding dress.” We’re not advocating for drug use, but do you know how stressful dress shopping is? While patrolling downtown, an officer saw about 10 men in a circle throwing dice in front of an abandoned property with money on the ground. The officer thought it was the perfect opportunity to speak with the group and educate them about social distancing, which went about as well as one would expect.

Police responded to a downtown college campus after receiving reports about a suspicious paper bag. Police found the bag, but the report abruptly ended without mention of what was found inside. So, it was either an unspeakable Lovecraftian horror or some sort of printer error. We like to think it’s the former. Stay weird, Charleston.

A downtown man who had just been caught with an open can of beer tucked away in a paper bag told an officer that he had just been released from the hospital, and his doctor recommended he drink a beer immediately. Well, doctor’s orders, officer. A West Ashley man whose car was broken into found his top hat and sheet music stolen. Now all the thief needs is a cane and a monocle to complete his Mr. Peanut costume for the big piano concert.

Officers responded to a small gathering around a man attempting to remove a manhole cover at a West Ashley intersection who claimed he had discovered a pathway to other dimensions via the Greek alphabet. God, we hope he is right. A West Ashley woman reported her apartment had been broken into, and among the things stolen were 75 rounds of .308 ammunition, a book of personal account passwords, a deck of Tarot cards and $6,000 cash. We always like to piece together a profile of folks who’ve been robbed, but we are honestly struggling with this one. An officer was sitting in a downtown gas station parking lot when an individual with superficial cuts on their wrist approached him. The victim advised he is a satanist and he cut his wrists to drink the blood “in order to ward off demons.” If those demons could bring Band-Aids and peroxide, they might be useful. After an older member of a local church discovered that a young couple in the congregation were dating, he announced it to a group at an after-hours church meeting. After the meeting, the man who made the announcement assaulted the younger man when questioned about the public statement. This is probably just another standard, everyday case of demon possession.

A downtown man decided his time was best spent trying to dismantle the legal system through radical libertarianism after officers told him he couldn’t drive his truck while under the influence. His response: “This is my truck, and I can do whatever I want with it.”

Word Craft

North Charleston painter Scott Wallace will present his new exhibit, Abstraction in Action, at the Park Circle Gallery Jan. 5-30. The exhibit presents Wallace’s series of abstract paintings, which explore unusual color palettes and the textural possibilities of acrylic paint. Wallace’s latest paintings “flirt with the line between representation and abstraction, modified through the process of drawing,” he said in a press release. The new exhibit also analyzes “the base materiality of acrylic paint,” he added. Abstraction in Action will be open to the public and free to attend. Gallery capacity is still limited to 10 people at a time, and face masks are required for all patrons. —Heath Ellison

Black Ink returns for its 5th year with even more discussion virtually BY HEATH ELLISON laureate Marcus Amaker, Southern Review of Books editor-at-large Shani Raine Gilchrist and Turning Page Bookshop owner VaLinda Miller. Miller will be involved in a discussion titled “Looking Beyond Amazon,” which will look into the importance of authors building relationships with local bookstores and libraries. “Even though this has been a year of Black-owned bookstores and so many AfricanAmerican authors, it’s still a struggle to get your book out there because you’re not telling people about your book,” Miller said, encouraging writers to promote their book sales through independent bookstores. Black Ink will kick off after a year where race and equity in America was a major topic of discussion, something that influenced Black Ink 2021 down to its theme: amplify Black voices. “When folks have diversity in storytelling, when they get to experience someone else’s culture, there’s an appreciation for who they are, for who that group of individuals are as people,” Brockington said. The festival, she added, can open more dialogue for Charleston on race and the Black experience in the city by simply including everyone’s story. “[Charleston] is beautiful, but it is an Antebellum city that literally was built by slaves,” Brockington said. “[Black people] helped create the beauty of this city, but that gets deemphasized ... There is a way to amplify our history — by just speaking the truth of it.”

The branches, which also include the Mount Pleasant Regional Library and the Wando Mount Pleasant Library, will return to curbside operations, the county announced Monday. The suspension of in-person services is due to the statewide uptick in COVID-19 cases and recent “COVID-related closures” at the three branches, according to county library executive director Angela Craig. “We felt that it was in the best interest of the safety of our staff and patrons to return these branches to curbside operations,” she said in a public statement.

Black Ink, Charleston’s first and only festival dedicated to Black authors, will return virtually for its fifth year Jan. 14-16. As in previous years, Black Ink will focus on promoting Black authors and providing live discussions for writers interested in expanding their craft. There are a few noticeable differences on the surface of this year’s Black Ink: The festival will be livestreamed, it’ll last three days and will provide a new list of topics to explore the publishing business for writers and readers. The decision to go virtual, according to Black Ink Committee Chair Djuanna Brockington, helped turn the festival into a “full-on conference, for lack of a better word.” “[It] will be a series of workshops for readers, writers and just the general public, anyone who’s interested in books and writing and words and all the things around it,” she said. Kwame Mbalia, the keynote speaker for this year’s festival, is the New York Times best-selling author of the middlegrade Tristan Strong novels. In the books, 7thgrader Tristan Strong goes on an interdimensional journey to save the world MBALIA and his family. Along the way, he meets Black folk heroes and African gods while dealing with the fallout from past tragedy. Mbalia told the City Paper he is honored to be involved in the festival, where his keynote speech will be titled, “Be a Sapper, Not a Gatekeeper.” “I absolutely love the premise of Black Ink,” he said. “Talking about Black authors, Black books, writing about Black culture — this festival is exactly what I needed to start off 2021.” Black Ink has also been able to expand its programming with the additional time and online format. Panels will discuss topics for writers and readers, such as marketing a project, how calls for diversity are changing publishing, advocating for Black voices and why relationships with local bookstores and libraries are crucial. The festival, Brockington said, is a space for Black writers to share their work with the public, and share resources on the craft and the business of writing with each other.

NEON TIGER’S DRINK MENU UTILIZES CREATIVE ALTERNATIVES TO MAKE VEGAN COCKTAILS AND MOCKTAILS

Bright and Boozy Neon Tiger mixes up drink menu with kegged cocktails and house-made vegan substitutes

CHARLESTON CITY PAPER 01.06.2021

BY PARKER MILNER

14

It’s less than a week into 2021, so you might be taking a break from the booze — but does it really even count if you indulge in a cocktail made with all-vegan, house-made ingredients? That’s what you’ll find at Neon Tiger where owner John Adamson sought the help of cocktail expert and former colleague Brent Sweatman to build a drink menu highlighted by a long list of colorful kegged cocktails. The duo found success at The Rarebit with kegged Moscow Mules and other craft creations, so Adamson knew Sweatman was the one to help the vegan King Street eatery establish itself as a cocktail destination. Sweatman now owns Sweatman’s All Natural, which specializes in handcrafted tonic and ginger beer made without using additives, high fructose corn syrup or preservatives. His creations can be found behind the bars at Rebel Taqueria, Felix, Paddock SWEATMAN & Whiskey and Seanachai Whiskey & Cocktail Bar. “We hit it off and the Moscow mule really put me on the map,” said Sweatman. After he was hired as a consultant,

Sweatman decided he wanted Neon Tiger’s cocktails to play off its futuristic vibe. And true to form, Neon Tiger’s cocktails rely on quality ingredients. “My M.O. has always been fresh juices and things that are good for you,” Sweatman said. “The other thing was colors, just because of the name of the place.” Colorful cocktails are plentiful at Neon Tiger. Take the lavender paloma, a bright pink tequila-based drink made using fresh squeezed grapefruit juice. The dragon fruit club soda, a non-alcoholic drink, is another ode to Neon Tiger’s eclectic decor, which was inspired by the impact animal agriculture has on the world’s oceans. Both of these drinks are offered on tap — in fact, kegged cocktails are the main event at Neon Tiger. The restaurant also serves a rose Moscow mule, turmeric ginger beer, cucumber tonic, all natural cola and a rotating seasonal soda on tap. “We have a number of cocktails and mocktails on draft because I know that there’s a demand for some artisanal non-alcoholic beverages,” Adamson said. Jeremy Buck, a cocktail expert and friend of Sweatman, also contributed to the menu. After developing beverage programs for

establishments in New York City, Boston and India, Buck brought some flair to Neon Tiger’s cocktail program. “I’ve always liked what John’s done, so I was psyched to be able to work with them,” Buck said. “Brent already had a lot of it going, and I helped him finalize some drinks and added a few as well.” For a drink called the Truffle Tiki Tiger, he brought a vegan approach to a technique called fat-washing — high-end cocktail bars use it to impart savory elements into drinks, often using bacon or duck fat. Using truffle oil to keep the drink vegan, he described it as “a riff on a pineapple daiquiri.” Buck’s aquafaba foam serves as a vegan substitute for egg whites and shows up in multiple cocktails. “It’s surprisingly easy,” Buck said. “The water that the chickpea is sitting in, that’s all you need to use.” With house-made bitters, syrups and an all-vegan edible print that stamps some drinks with the restaurant’s logo, Neon Tiger’s cocktail program stands out in a city filled with craft libations. “The thing that’s really encouraging is just how incredible the feedback has been. It’s been beyond what I was even expecting.”

KinFolk owners Joe and Kevin Nierstedt will serve ramen and Japanese-style katsu sandwiches at The Daily every Wednesday and Thursday starting Jan. 6. Their pop-up, called Katsub, is “a fun and different way to keep us all busy during our slow season,” Joe said. “Ramen just made sense since it’s what I crave in the winter. I have experience working at one of the best ramen shops in NYC at a spot called Mu Ramen and wanted to apply what I learned there to Katsub,” he said. KinFolk, the Nierstedts’ Johns Island restaurant, is known for its fried chicken, which has gained a cult following since it opened in 2019. Like KinFolk, Katsub will focus on quality over quantity with a small menu. Look for Tokyo-style shoyu ramen and hearty katsu sandos — traditional Japanesestyle sandwiches served on milk bread. Katsub will serve a couple different sandos, including a Nashville hot fried chicken geared towards fans of KinFolk and a specialty item that’s not too easy on the wallet. “I am excited about (our) A5 Japanese wagyu katsu sando served on milk bread from Fay Da Bakery out of NYC,” Joe said. “It is priced at $75 and is potentially the most expensive sandwich in Charleston. We sourced the best wagyu we could get to make it.” Katsub will be open for dinner at The Daily from 5-11 p.m. on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Could a new a restaurant be in the cards? “You never know,” John said. “Although it wasn’t an easy pop-up to source for (with) lots of special ordering.” —Parker Milner

DASHI OPENS FOOD TRUCK AT GHOST MONKEY BREWING

The Dashi food truck has a permanent spot in Mount Pleasant at Ghost Monkey Brewing, where it will dish out the same Asian Latin fusion cuisine found at its namesake North Charleston restaurant. The truck is now open in the brewery’s parking lot Wednesday-Friday from 4-8 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday from 1-8 p.m. Dashi started out as a food truck before the Remount Road restaurant opened in July 2019. Since, the truck has continued to roam the Lowcountry, popping up at breweries like Ghost Monkey and Two Blokes. Look for burritos, colossal Thai chicken wings and steamed buns crafted by the truck’s new chef Jason Culbertson, who joins Dashi after working in the kitchen at Asheville’s Jargon and most recently Circa 1886 on Wentworth Street. Culbertson’s former food truck, Grill Force One, used to frequent Ghost Monkey, the chef said. “I always enjoyed cooking there back in my Grill Force One days,” Culbertson said. “I’m really excited about working with the Chucktown F&B community again. I love going out and working with local farmers, and it’s going to be a fun experience working with the Ghost Monkey team.” —PM

YOUNG PEOPLE ARE TAUGHT SKILLS IN AND OUT OF THE CLASSROOM THROUGH GARDENING

Horticultural therapy growing into a key program at MUSC Urban Farm BY PARKER MILNER The Medical University of South Carolina’s Urban Farm’s horticultural therapy services are enhancing an intensive treatment program for local children with behavioral challenges, helping kids ages 6-17 stay active outdoors with garden-based projects. “That’s been amazing for them,” said Rebecca Daffron, clinical coordinator for MUSC’s STAR Children’s Day Treatment Program, which aims to stabilize, treat, assess and reintegrate children and adolescents. “Fresh air for everyone is therapeutic, but then there’s also the grounding techniques and being able to grow something outside.” The farm, a half-acre plot located on Bee Street, grows vegetables, fruits, herbs, citrus and grains under the direction of educator Carmen Ketron. Children and adolescents enrolled in the day treatment program — a less costly alternative to inpatient care — spend each Friday with Ketron at a patient-specific satellite farm in North Charleston, where they KETRON engage in garden-based activities in small groups. Most of the program’s intensive daily treatment is completed in the classroom with clinical therapists, nurses and social workers, but MUSC’s shift toward overall wellness is placing an emphasis on the outdoor programming. Ketron uses MUSC’s Urban Farm to help the kids use the skills taught in the classroom.

One week, groups of four children worked together to build scarecrows; another, they planted eggplants, green beans and sunflowers. “The problem was that all of the plants were getting eaten by something, so we were working on problem solving skills because some of the kids were getting frustrated,” Ketron said. “A lot of the time you’re trying to retrain your brain, and we provide a space where they can practice in a garden setting.” Ketron hopes to eventually bring this horticultural therapy to the newly constructed MUSC Children’s Hospital, which has a rooftop garden filled with plants native to the Lowcountry. “When it was being built, one of the main focuses was we wanted a place for children to be children,” Ketron said. “It seems so simple, but when you’re a patient, you’re denied a lot of the things that make up your childhood.” The Urban Farm’s staff is responsible for the upkeep at the garden’s Children’s Dreamscape. Ketron and her staff will have the opportunity to help out with future programming, which is currently on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But, MUSC’s horticultural therapy will be an important part of patient care at the Children’s Hospital when the time is right, McMillion said. “Sunshine and light is just so important to everyone, but when you’re in the hospital staring at four walls, having the ability just to breathe fresh air and see sunlight and green is just super important to a child and their mental health,” she said.

intelligence. In accordance with astrological omens, I invite you to take a cue from the Tree of Life. During the next 12 months, give special attention to people and things and experiences and thoughts and feelings that are beautiful to you. Meditate on how to nurture them and learn from them and draw inspiration from them. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): According to motivational speaker Les Brown, the problem for many people is not that “they aim too high and miss,” but that “they aim too low and hit.” I’m conveying this to you just in time for the Reach Higher Phase of your long-term astrological cycle. According to my analysis, you’ll generate good fortune for yourself if you refine and expand your personal goals. Here’s a key detail: Don’t borrow anyone else’s standards of success. Home in on your own unique soul’s code, and give it fuller, deeper, wilder expression. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): One of my primary pleasures in reading books is to discover thoughts and feelings I have never before encountered. That’s exciting! But it’s hard to force myself to keep plowing through an author’s prose if it’s full of stuff that I already know about from my own life or from books, movies, and other art. Russian author Fyodor Dostoevsky’s novels fit the latter description. I realize that many people love his fiction, but for me it is monumentally obvious and boring. What about you, Sagittarius? Where do you go to be exposed to thrilling new ways of looking at the world? Judging from the astrological omens, I conclude that this quest will be especially fun and crucial for you in the coming months. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “I only want people around me who can do the impossible,” said Capricorn businesswoman Elizabeth Arden. In that spirit, and in accordance with your astrological potentials, I hereby authorize you to pursue two “impossible” goals in 2021. The first comes to you courtesy of fashion writer Diana Vreeland, who wrote, “There’s only one thing in life, and that’s the continual renewal of inspiration.” Your second “impossible” goal is from actor Juliette Binoche, who said, “My only ambition is to be true every moment I am living.” AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Your past is becoming increasingly irrelevant, while your future is still a bit amorphous. To help clarify the possibilities that you could harvest in 2021, I suggest you suspend your theories about what your life is about. Empty yourself out as much as you can. Pledge to re-evaluate everything you think you know about your purpose. Once you’ve accomplished that, meditate on the following questions: 1. What experiences do you truly need and passionately long for — not the experiences you needed and longed for in the past, but rather those that are most vivid and moving right now? 2. What are the differences between your fearful fantasies and your accurate intuitions? How can you cultivate the latter and downplay the former? 3. What are your nightly dreams and semi-conscious fantasies telling you about how to create the most interesting version of the future? PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Author Gunter Grass wrote, “Writers know that sometimes things are there in the drawer for decades before they finally come out and we are capable of writing about them.” I would universalize his thought in this way: Most of us know that possibly useful ideas and dreams are in the drawer for years before they finally come out and we know how to use them. I believe this will be an ongoing experience for you in 2021, Pisces. Homework: What’s the biggest and best lucky break you’d love to attract in 2021? FreeWillAstrology.com

SCHEMA WROTE DREAM ROCK BEFORE THE PANDEMIC, BUT RECORDED IT LARGELY DURING QUARANTINE

Dream of the Future

MCKENZIE EDDY THINKS ABOUT THE PAST ON ‘ODE TO EARTHLINGS’

Schema’s new album is a homemade gem

CHARLESTON CITY PAPER 01.06.2021

BY VINCENT HARRIS

22

It’s early, but we have a 2021 prediction: Dream Rock, the new album by Charleston quartet Schema, is one of the most aptly titled releases of the year. On the album’s seven songs, the all-instrumental group (guitarist/ keyboard player Adam Coyne, guitarist Ryan Bresnihan, bassist Thomas Kenney and drummer JP Treadway) stretch out the grooves, but it’s not a jam-band. Even in its softest moments, like the blurry intro to “Bugs” or the reggae-style interlude in the title track, the band is tightly focused and sharp. The rhythms are complex, but it’s not progressive rock; funk plays a bigger role for the band. And while squiggling synths are all over the place, it’s not electronic music by any means. That pretty much leaves “dream rock,” a term Treadway decided on one night, to describe the band’s blend of beats, shimmering synths and precise guitars. The album also sounds quite polished, a sharp contrast to the raw self-titled EP Schema released last year. “That EP was done in a single day at Fairweather Studio (in Charleston),” Bresnihan said. “The whole thing was tracked live.”

And that’s a sharp contrast to how Dream Rock was made. The album was largely written and partially recorded before the pandemic, but most of it was done post-shutdown in a home studio, with Coyne handling production. “We switched gears right as quarantine hit and shows were getting cancelled,” Coyne said. “We set up our gear at the house in West Ashley and started tracking everything at the home studio. I did most of the tracking; I taught myself and had a couple of lessons from our bass player, Thomas.” The home environment allowed Schema to make a better-sounding record than a top-notch studio, because the band had more time and less budgetary woes to worry about. “We’re stoked about how it turned out, it being our first time,” Coyne said. “Doing it on our own time — all the gear and technology makes it easier than it’s ever been.” “I think that’s something about this album that speaks for itself,” Bresnihan added. “We were able to do it as many times as we thought necessary to get it done the way we wanted it to.” It turns out the bandmates actually needed that extra time. “It took about eight months from start to finish,” Treadway said. “We had a lot of it tracked already, but we had a lot of extra time to mess with it.”

BluFlame James dropped his latest mixtape, Bootleg Movies Plus, Dec. 30 on Bandcamp. The album’s a pretty lengthy end-of-year release, with 15 tracks and two remixes to cap the project off. James proves to be a rapper of many talents on the latest album, running lyrics quickly, changing up his flow on a dime, singing some hooks and conveying his observations on life in succinct ways. “I am only human/ they trying to take my color, yeah my hue/ I can’t afford to waste my truth for just a few bands,” he raps on stand-out track “1995 (feat. Heartbreak Hutch).” The aesthetic for the album’s beats is somewhere between the grandiose sounds of southern hip-hop’s past and ethereal tones found on trip-hop. “Ballgame” and “Lac Gon’ Ride” mixes the two sounds with big results, as James’ energy on the tracks is infectious. Bootleg Movies Plus is somewhat of a deluxe edition of James’ last LP, Bootleg Movies, released Oct. 21. For this latest incarnation, James added three tracks (“Rollin’ Pt. 2,” “Eyeballin’” and “Wings”) and two remixes. —Heath Ellison

“Doing it on our own time, all the gear and technology makes it easier than it’s ever been.” —Schema guitarist/keyboard player Adam Coyne

The band was able to add improvisational sections to the tracks — Treadway said the album is about “40% improvised music.” Isolation during the pandemic also meant that the band was able to hone its own musical skills, resulting in a tighter sound. “I think we all practiced more and started taking it a little more seriously,” Coyne said. And, it’s a good thing the band likes to practice. With so much uncertainty about the safety of live performances, Schema might not be able to play shows for a while, which is frustrating for a band that was finally getting some traction after nearly a decade on the regional circuit, including gigs in Atlanta and Charlotte. “I hope we can pick up where we left off in those markets and keep building that, but I personally get to practice a lot more now, and it seems like everybody else is the same,” Treadway said. “It really seems to be a time to grow as musicians and take it day by day and see where this thing takes us.”

McKenzie Eddy dropped a new single, “Ode to Earthlings,” Dec. 18 on Bandcamp. The latest single follows Eddy’s track, “Stingray,” released in August. The latest song, produced by Wolfgang Zimmerman and Elliott Smith, is another spacey pop tune from the indie songwriter. “Ode to Earthlings” sees Eddy gaze at the past, contemplating her personal history. “And the life that you’ve missed that you can’t seem to find/ while others were passing and chasing the time/ And I was just finding my mind,” she sings. The indie-pop, blue-eyed soul influenced music is subtle and dug into the background, emphasizing Eddy’s voice and words. —HE

TYRIE TAKES ‘DRUGS 4 REALITY’ IN NEW VIDEO

Tyrie released a video Dec. 18 for his single “Drugs 4 Reality” from his 2019 LP, Season 1. The video, available on YouTube and directed by Nick Howle, depicts a trippy little spin around various Atlanta locations, from the woods to a MARTA station. Tyrie’s combo of R&B and slow rap still holds up a year later, thanks to strangely endearing lyrics like, “I don’t need a cheat code to whoop your ass.” —HE If you or your band is about to enter the studio, hit the road, or has a special gig coming up, contact Heath Ellison at heath@charlestoncitypaper.com.

COMEDY | Sexbruise? Comedy funk weirdos Sexbruise? are back in town for one night at the Pour House. As always, fans should expect electronic grooves and topical humor, and probably a lot of snacks. Throughout the last year, Sexbruise? has been workng on singles, like “Cuidado Piso Mojado” and “‘Rona,” and putting together a two-episode quarantine show titled “Keeping Up with the Bruises.” The video for “Piso Mojado” is another example of the band’s late-night television sense of humor as the group reacts to a confusing music video band member Stratton Moore paid someone $5 to put together. Bad special effects enthusiasts will be delighted at an uncanny valley scene in the video’s middle section. Overall, the band tried to keep things light in the last year, cracking jokes about the quarantine. Maybe a little humor is the way to kick off 2021. “Cuidado Piso Mojado” can be heard on Spotify and its music video is available on YouTube. —Heath Ellison FRIDAY

NOLA FUNK | Lady & the Brass Lady & the Brass, a New Orleans-inspired band fronted by vocalist Kanika Moore, will perform at the freshly reopened Commodore every Wednesday. The band, which performs a wide collection of songs in genres like jazz and funk, is one of many groups the Commodore usually brings out for a weekly show. Thanks to Moore’s powerhouse vocals and some NOLA flavor from the band’s horn section, the group often puts on entertaining shows for a social distanced night out. Near the end of 2020, the Commodore brought live music back after months of closures due to the pandemic. The latest round of shows mirrors the venue’s typical weekly performances pre-pandemic. Lady & the Brass plays almost every Wednesday and the Majestics take on Thursday nights. Commodore regulars can get a double dose of funk every weekend with the Funktastics on Friday nights and Future Funk on Saturday nights. Check the schedule at commodorechs.com weekly for the full schedule and details. —Heath Ellison WEDNESDAY
