Charleston Digital Corridor ready to put down roots in new Morrison Drive building BY SKYLER BALDWIN
The Charleston Digital Corridor has seen a lot of new growth since its start in 2001. As technology progresses rapidly and the Lowcountry’s population continues to explode, stars may be aligning for the tech sector to continue its upward growth in Charleston. nomic impact. Andrade said he wanted it to be a part of the community’s growth forward. “The objectives were very simple: raise per-capita wages, have a place for our graduates to go and avoid people leaving, and to be the voice for this community,” he said. “And, it’s a small community, but it’s slowly but surely growing.” Andrade said that when he pitched the idea to then-Mayor Joe Riley in 2000, the idea was to make the organization a part of what he called the “economic basket.” “You’ve got the port, the distribution, tourism, medical, legal, retail — all these parts and pieces, and we were in a position to leverage the naturally built environment here and the sense of place.” That sense of place is one unique to the Lowcountry, Andrade said. “You feel like you have a soul here,” he said. “There’s a certain vibrance of peninsula cities. The fact that if I really wanted to, I could get up and walk down to the battery right now — these things matter.” Part of that community feel has been the new tech center at 997 Morrison Drive. While it’s still under construction, many companies and partners have already started the process of moving in, and making the coworking space their own. The 92,000-square-foot, six-story building can accommodate more than 70 people per floor, but that number looks a bit lower now due to pandemic restrictions. Each floor is designed for different levels of corporations, and retail and restaurant space is planned for ground level. The second floor is dedicated to the Flagship, a 15,000 squarefoot coworking space and the corridor’s permanent new headquarters. “We were in a temp-space downtown, and we were cramped,” said Riley Chalmers, a recruiter with Insight Global. “It was a cool location, but there were eight of us in a small room just screaming. Now, the views are great, and on a sunny day, you can see the bridge. “It was a really excellent move,” she said. “We are all really happy to be here. This space is awesome, and we are excited to just be in a dedicated tech space.” Insight Global, a staffing company with

CHARLESTON DIGITAL CORRIDOR DIRECTOR ERNEST ANDRADE SAID ITS NEW BUILDING IS JUST THE START OF THE TECH INCUBATOR’S WORK IN 2021
61 offices nationwide, is just one example of Charleston newcomers in the growing local tech industry. “People are now understanding what the vision was all about 20-25 years ago,” Andrade said. “The city has benefited from this march forward to build a more diverse economy. So, one of our core tenets has really been addressed — creating a robust, diverse envi-
ronment. And, we are just getting started.” The building is still under construction but is operational for many companies who began utilizing the space Feb. 15. Future developments with the Digital Corridor building include retail and restaurant space on the ground floor, a way of getting local feet in the door, so they can see what the tech industry is doing in the community.

Even compared to Charleston’s larger hospitality and medical sectors, Corridor Director Ernest Andrade said the nonprofit holds its own and, in some ways, comes out on top. “Charleston’s medical scene is thriving because the population is growing,” he explained. “But, that’s distributive. On the other hand, tech is more generative; it’s something that didn’t exist before, and you’ve created value from doing something incrementally better than anything else.” Andrade said a distirbutive economy is one that builds naturally alongside the city, like health care and tourism, but a generative economy has to be designed intentionally and built up from nothing. That key difference is what propelled Andrade through the formation of the organization’s ethos from day one. The Digital Corridor is a tech incubator, an organization that supports the development of new business ideas by providing mentorship, business services and funding connections to young tech companies. “Before this, when we had our first child, I stopped long enough to ask myself, ‘What is she going to be doing in this town?’” Andrade said. “The answer I found was that we needed an economically diverse town … You can’t be a one-trick pony. The economic resilience of a community is tied directly to the diversity of its economic base.” The pandemic provides a recent example of that principle. As the local hospitality industry was struggling and hotels were at 30% capacity, tech businesses in Charleston and abroad were still humming along. “There already was a trend for a lot of employees with these companies working remote,” Andrade said. “There was already a trend where unicorn employees were being allowed to work wherever they want; there was already a trend where young families, their quality of life was starting to migrate. “What the pandemic did was accelerate those trends, so we absolutely benefited from the pandemic. There has been an amazing silver lining.” But, the Digital Corridor isn’t all about eco-

ALISON PIEPMEIER’S COLLEAGUES SCOURED HER WORK TO FINISH HER FINAL BOOK ABOUT PARENTHOOD
Everyone who read Alison Piepmeier’s blog or her columns in Charleston City Paper knew about her daughter, Maybelle. Before she died of a brain tumor in 2016, Piepmeier began work on what would be her last book, one inextricably informed by her career as a social scientist, relentless activist and a mother to Maybelle, who was born with Down syndrome. What resulted was Unexpected: Parenting, Prenatal Testing and Down Syndrome, a challenging interdisciplinary study of contemporary feminism and disability theory, subjects Piepmeier came to know personally. In Unexpected, Piepmeier pulls readers into her scholarship, writing with her own raw edge of the fear, anger, excitement and anticipation about motherhood and Down syndrome diagnosis. But, Piepmeier never got to finish Unexpected. Surgeries, treatments and tumor progression ultimately robbed Piepmeier of her beloved, rigorous research and writing routines. So in the summer of 2016, she turned to George Estreich, who teaches writing at Oregon State University, to take over the project. He agreed. A few weeks later, on Aug. 12, 2016, she died. To complete Unexpected, Estreich also enlisted Columbia professor Rachel Adams to review everything Piepmeier published. In addition to being Piepmeier’s academic contemporaries, Estreich and Adams both also have children with Down syndrome. The two scoured peer-reviewed articles to City Paper columns to personal writings on her blog. With their departed colleague’s scribbled-up manuscript and a firm grasp on her voice as a writer, they set off to fill in the blanks of Piepmeier’s four chapters of Unexpected. Then, they each added their own. The finished volume is not some bestguess fabrication, though. It consists of what Piepmeier’s collaborators deemed her best work, pieced together. Unexpected is available for preorder now from NYU Press. —Sam Spence
SC CONTINUES LEADING NATION FOR COVID -19 RATE South Carolina has maintained the highest per-capita rate of COVID-19 in the nation for an entire week, according to federal health stats. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported Sunday that South Carolina’s average of 62.2 new cases per 100,000 tests over the last seven days is the highest of any state in the nation. New York City reported the second highest rate with 55, followed by New Jersey with 43. South Carolina’s high rates of the respiratory disease resulting from coronavirus infection comes as the state’s already-slow vaccine distribution lags even more due to weather. The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control’s board heard a plan Feb. 11 that would
shift the distribution of COVID-19 vaccine doses from cities to more rural areas. Senior Deputy for Public Health Nick Davidson said the dose imbalance was a result of the early vaccine rollout. Doses naturally flowed to urban areas with more healthcare workers, who were being prioritized. Meanwhile, two major shipping hubs for vaccines serving the South, the Memphis FedEx and Louisville UPS facilities, could see delays impacting the ability to send doses to other Southeastern states, according to a Feb. 11 DHEC press release. As a result, DHEC issued warnings that some providers may need to reschedule vaccine appointments. The state will still receive its regular weekly allotment, but the shipment could arrive a few days later than anticipated. —Staff reports

CHARLESTON RELIC HUNTER, HISTORIAN AWARDED ORDER OF THE SILVER CRESCENT Robert E. Bohrn, of Charleston, was awarded the Order of the Silver Crescent by Gov. Henry McMaster last Thursday. S.C. Rep. Spencer Wetmore, D-Folly Beach, presented Bohrn with the commendation at a Statehouse ceremony. This award is the state’s highest civilian award for significant contributions, leadership, volunteerism and lifelong influence within a region or community. Bohrn earned the honor for one of the most BOHRN important archaeological finds in the history of the country and state, according to a press release. Bohrn discovered the remains of Civil War-era African American sol-
diers who fought for the Union’s 55th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry in 1987. The remains of 19 soldiers were identified with help from archaeologists from the University of South Carolina. “These soldiers gave their lives for their country in a horrendous way, most of them dying from dysentery,” Bohrn said in a press release. “They didn’t die instantly; they just withered away. When you see that guy laying there, who never had a chance to go home, who never saw his family again, that saddens me.” The 55th Massachusetts was a secondary option to the 54th Massachusetts, one of the first Union regiments comprised of African American soldiers, which inspired the film Glory. When Massachusetts’ then-Gov. John A. Andrew saw the demand for enlistment in the 54th, in 1863, he created the 55th Regiment. —Skyler Baldwin
Opponents of a measure that would allow handgun owners to carry their weapons in the open are relying on the state Senate to stop it in its tracks. But, the bill’s sponsor says an enlarged Republican majority in the state Senate may push the proposal toward ultimate passage after it gets through the S.C. House. Critics say the bill isn’t needed and has no general public benefit because there’s already a state process for citizens to carry concealed guns if they have required training. Last week, a House Judiciary subcommittee passed H. 3094, the open carry bill which requires training, on a 3-1 vote. In two weeks, the full Judiciary Committee is expected to approve the measure, which is cosponsored by more than half of S.C. House members. Passage by the full House is expected within a month, when it then would go to the state Senate. “[With] the overall dynamic of the legislature with the increase of the Republican majority, there’s almost a mandate — an expectation — to pass conservative agenda items like the heartbeat bill and expanding Second Amendment freedoms,” said the open carry bill’s sponsor, Rep. Bobby Cox, a Greenville Republican who is a vice president of handgun manufacturer Sig Sauer. “In talking with Leader [Shane] Massey in the Senate, they do like the bill as it is right now — open carry with training. It’s just a matter of timing.” During subcommittee testimony and in interviews last week, opponents cautioned that the open carry proposal was dangerous to a society already smarting from the civil unrest of the Jan. 6 mob insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. “Passing open carry right now is like adding fuel to the fire,” said Meghan Alexander, founder of Arm-in-Arm, a South Carolina advocacy group pushing to end gun violence. Charleston Police Chief Luther Reynolds told Statehouse Report, City Paper’s sister publication, the open carry legislation was weaker than similar laws in other states because it does not preclude gun owners from carrying pistols in the open at protests, parades and events. “They’re expanding this very quickly, and I think without a lot of thought and discussion,” Reynolds said. Cox fired back, saying he believed the measure would improve safety. “Open carry with training would allow citizens to respond when police weren’t able to respond during calls or weren’t able to respond as we saw during the protests this past summer in Charleston,” he said. Bill opponents provided testimony at this week’s hearing on why the open carry measure was troublesome. “South Carolina is already among the nation’s worst states for gun violence and, as of 2017, is ranked 12th nationally for per-capita gun deaths,” said Dean Foster of Meggett, who has worked with Arm-in-Arm. “Research shows states that allow open carry endure the worst rates of gun violence.” Reynolds added the proposal could also hurt South Carolina’s $19 billion tourism economy. “We want to attract people to where they feel safe,” Reynolds said. “Do you think that [open carry] is going to attract tourists? I’m a pro-Second Amendment guy, but it’s about balance … With our residents and our economy, this is not going to be a net positive.” —Andy Brack
blotter BLOTTER O’ THE WEEK
Security footage caught one man stealing a large amount of laundry supplies, including scent boosters, detergent and Gain “Flings.” Poor guy clearly read an article about “money laundering” and got confused.
Sponsored by BY SKYLER BALDWIN ILLUSTRATION BY STEVE STEGELIN
The Blotter is taken from reports filed with Charleston Police Department between Feb. 3 and Feb. 9. No one described in this section has been found guilty, just unlucky. An assortment of clothes and Beats by Dre headphones were stolen from a West Ashley department store. The stolen goods’ total value was just under $500. We are pretty sure since the headphones have a famous dude’s name on them, they were a hefty portion of that value.
Police pulled over a black Dodge Charger for turning without a signal on Meeting Street. We know where you think this is going, but the driver was apparently very cooperative and let off with a warning, even after police found the marijuana and the gun.
A woman reported her purse was stolen from a house party after she put it down on what either she or the police called a “budda head.” It’s probably a Buddha head, but would be great if it was actually a bust made of butter.
Police responded to an emergency call about a woman that claimed her legs had gone numb and she was unable to stand up. Her family said the only history of drugs she had was marijuana, of which officers found 0.25 grams in her bedroom. Bad trip, man.
A box containing 50 .22-caliber rounds of ammunition was stolen from a West Ashley vehicle parked behind the owner’s residence. At least the owner was smart enough not to leave his gun in the unlocked car, too. Unlike some people. One man told officers his Nissan was stolen, and he was pretty bummed about it. We wonder how it must have felt when officers had to explain that they found his car, and the resulting pursuit ended in a wreck. A West Ashley man, who apparently watched too many cop shows, kicked in his girlfriend’s door in what she said was an attempt to look cool. He caused excessive damage, obviously, and immediately fled the scene. Even cooler.
Another catalytic converter was stolen from five Mercedes vans parked at an abandoned building along Savannah Highway. This is apparently a nation-wide epidemic, even the New York Times did an expose on the crime last week. A downtown man cracked open a cold one in front of a police officer last Monday, looked him square in the eyes and asked if he “would let him walk away.” He did not. Not cool, man. As our writer was finishing up this week’s edition of the Blotter, it began to rain about four hours earlier than forecasted, resulting in a rushed attempt at a final entry — this one — to prevent his laptop from getting too wet. We hope you understand.

Changing What’s Possible
Gunslinger Fantasyland ‘Open carry’ proposal will make SC less safe, more violent
CHARLESTON CITY PAPER 02.17.2021
rmed vigilante justice: That’s just one of the selling points of a proposal to allow permitted South Carolina gun owners to strap pistols to their hips, according to the proposal’s author. The South Carolina legislature has never actually considered a bill to allow for “open carry” of handguns, as its supporters call it. Yet, Republican legislators are clamoring to approve a narrow-minded bill that even some of the state’s top cops oppose. Supporters are calculated in calling the proposal “open carry with training,” but do not be fooled. The bill adds just nine words to state law, and none of them mention training, falling back on the state’s existing concealed weapons permit rules that have led to South Carolina being 12th in the nation for per-capita gun deaths. The author of the fast-tracked, never-before-considered proposal to loosen the state’s gun safety laws? S.C. Rep. Bobby Cox of Greenville, a vice president for gunmaker Sig Sauer. Surprise! “Open carry with training would allow citizens to respond when police weren’t able to respond during calls or weren’t able to respond as we saw during the protests this past summer in Charleston,” Cox told us last week. You read that right. Unhappy with whatever the cops are doing? Show up ready to shoot someone yourself. That’s exactly the situation Charleston Police Chief Luther Reynolds told lawmakers he’s hoping to prevent. “It makes it hard for law enforcement officers to do their
job when a large group of individuals are carrying guns,” Reynolds told the House Judiciary Committee last week. State Law Enforcement Division Chief Mark Keel agrees and Charleston County Sheriff Kristen Graziano has said she opposes the bill, too. To put it simply: More guns equal more danger, according to police. Lawmakers need to listen to them, not rush forward. Nonetheless, the committee gave the bill an initial thumbs up. Data on race already show Black people in South Carolina are shot by law enforcement at disproportionately high rates. Between 2014 and 2017, 47% of people shot by South Carolina law enforcement were Black, despite making up just 27% of the population, according to The Greenville News. If we take law enforcement leaders at their word, open carry could make police interactions even more dangerous for Black people in South Carolina. The truth is that Cox’s gunslinger fantasy could easily have turned a destructive night on King Street where no one was seriously hurt or killed into a bloodbath shootout. Sounds primitive and barbaric, doesn’t it? Welcome to the Republican Party dreamworld of 2021. Amid a deadly pandemic that GOP leaders have spectacularly failed to respond to, we get new laws restricting abortion and relaxing gun safety. In the Charleston area, S.C. Reps. Lin Bennett, Sylleste Davis, Gil Gatch and Mark Smith are co-sponsors of Cox’s reckless open carry bill. Visit SCStatehouse.gov to find their information and tell them this bill will make South Carolina more violent and more dangerous.

GUEST COLUMN | BY CHARLES BRAVE and WILLIE LEGETTE
Help Our Workers One of the more instructive features of the 2020 national election is that Florida, which President Donald Trump carried by 3 percentage points, also passed by a substantial margin a referendum calling for a $15 an hour minimum wage. That victory underscores the extent to which Bernie Sanders’ 2016 and 2020 primary campaigns and initiatives like The Fight for $15 campaign have successfully put a living wage on the national political agenda. The movement for a living-wage represents an effort to curb the growing inequality in American society and the declining material well-being and purchasing power of American workers. And, few states would benefit more from a living wage than South Carolina. South Carolina is one of five states that does not have a state minimum wage law. The federal minimum wage is the baseline for employers in the state. A single adult needs to earn $11.76 per hour working full time to meet her basic needs in South Carolina, $4 more than the current minimum wage. According to David Cooper at Economic Policy Institute, the wages of roughly 684,000 South Carolina workers — a third of the state’s workforce — would increase if the state adopted a $15 minimum wage by 2025. South Carolina ranks in the bottom 10 states in a national ranking of best states to raise a family. It ranked 47th for median non-mortgage debt; 46th for median credit score and foreclosure rate; 44th for child day-care services; 43rd for day-care quality and median family income; and 42nd for life expectancy. A living wage in South Carolina would undoubtedly address many of these issues. However, it is essential to note that $15 per hour would not constitute a living-wage for many South Carolina families. Needs vary depending on family type and the county or city in which the family lives. On average, a living wage for a single parent and one child is $23.16 per hour. But, the living wage varies from $13.80 per hour in Orangeburg County to $22.94 per hour in Charleston County. The number of low wage jobs in South Carolina is typical for states across the U.S., where job growth before the pandemic looked strong. But, many of the jobs that came back after the Great Recession offer meager wages, and few provide benefits like health insurance and retirement savings. Three of South Carolina’s top 10 occupations — food preparation and serving workers, cashiers and servers — have median earnings less than half of a living wage. Wages for these occupations are so low that two adults working full-time would not earn enough to meet two children’s basic needs in most counties in South Carolina. Political elites in South Carolina, regardless of party, race, gender or sexual orientation, have primarily been hostile or indifferent to workers’ urgent needs. There have been few efforts in the South Carolina General Assembly to address low wages. For example, in 2016, S.C. Sen. Marlon Kimpson introduced a bill to increase the minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2020. Republicans on the committee claimed that increasing the minimum wage would encourage businesses to relocate to other states. They also argued that business owners should set wages because they wanted to “see the free market working without involving the government.” Kimpson correctly pointed out that the General Assembly funneled millions of dollars in incentives to Boeing and Volvo to locate in South Carolina. The low-wage crisis exists in South Carolina because, as Kimpson asserted to the General Assembly, “We haven’t passed one bill to benefit workers in South Carolina … but we’ve passed a lot of incentives for business.” While Kimpson’s bill did not pass, it does represent a growing interest to increase the minimum wage. According to a 2015 Winthrop Poll, two-thirds of South Carolinians support an increase in the minimum, as does the South Carolina Small Business Chamber of Commerce. As the vote in Florida showed clearly, the need for a real living wage is not a partisan issue. Floridians supported the $15 an hour wage initiative whether they voted Democratic or Republican in the presidential and congressional elections. That makes it clear that this is a proposal whose time has come, and it appeals broadly among working people. Charles Brave is president of S.C. AFL-CIO. Willie Legette is professor emeritus at S.C. State University and organizer for the Debs-Jones-Douglass Institute.

COLORFUL CREATIONS TO BRIGHTEN YOUR MARGARITA LINEUP
CHARLESTON CITY PAPER 02.17.2021
By Parker Milner
onday is National Margarita Day, so there’s no better time to indulge in the quintessential cocktail offered at so many Charleston establishments. Sometimes, the classic — made with high-quality tequila, orange liqueur and fresh-squeezed lime juice — just hits the spot, but why not add some color and variation to your margarita lineup? With the help of local beverage directors, cocktail specialists and restaurateurs, we’ve curated a list of margaritas that captures almost every color of the rainbow — from bright pink to red, green and magenta. Try one of these margs at a Charleston establishment, or use a recipe below as inspiration to craft your very own colorful margarita. Spring is almost here, so raise a glass, Charleston — this national holiday just gave you an excuse to add tequila to this weekend’s list of pandemicapproved activities.
• 1½ ounces blanco tequila of choice • ½ ounce prickly pear purée • ¾ ounce lime juice • ¼ ounce simple syrup FOR GARNISH “We garnish with volcanic black sea salt as a nod to Oaxaca’s black clay terroir, but any salt will do.” Shake all with ice to bind citrus to the spirit and to make frothy then strain all over fresh ice. Pro tip: Add a pinch of salt to the tin before shaking for salinity and foam.
“The Pink Cactus margarita is essentially a prickly pear margarita, which is very common on the West Coast. The delicious fruit of the prickly pear cactus is known as ‘tuna’ in Mexico because of its intense bright red color, like tuna, the fish. Prickly pear fruit is often used in drinks and food very commonly all over the West Coast and in Mexico where it originated. It’s the perfect signature house margarita for Pink Cactus because it bears our restaurant’s name. Pink Cactus is named specifically after a rare kind of prickly pear cactus named Santa Rita Prickly Pear Cactus, known for its bright pink to purple color.”
The Velvet Butterfly • 2 ounces butterfly pea flowers infused with Del Maguey Vida mezcal (see instructions below) • ½ ounce Lillet Blanc • ¼ ounce Pierre Ferrand dry orange Curaçao • ¾ ounce pineapple gum syrup • ¾ ounce fresh lime juice • lime wedge FOR INFUSED MEZCAL Add a handful of dried butterfly pea flowers into a 750ml bottle of mezcal, steep for 45 minutes and strain. You now have purple mezcal to get you through the pandemic. FOR GARNISH Dehydrated candied orange and chili salt for the rim. Rub the lime wedge along the upper half inch of the rocks glass, halfway around the circumference, then roll the wet portion in the chili salt. Add all of the ingredients to your cocktail shaker filled with ice, shake vigorously and strain into a chilled rocks glass with a big ice cube and garnish with the candied orange.
“I enjoy a good margarita from time to time. I find using mezcal instead of tequila gives a lot more depth to the cocktail. I love the texture of this cocktail, hence the name, The Velvet Butterfly. The ingredients all swirl together to create something otherworldly.” continued on page 13

STAY SAFE SUPPORT LOCAL
• 1½ ounces tequila • ¾ ounce fresh lime juice • ½ ounce fresh orange juice • ¼ ounce agave • ¼ ounce beet Juice
• 2 ounces tequila (Reposado preferred, like Espolon) • 1 ounce simple or agave syrup • juice of one whole lime • juice of one whole blood orange
Pour tequila, lime and orange juices, and agave into an empty shaker and fill with ice. Shake for 10-12 seconds. Strain mixture over fresh ice into an old fashioned glass. Top with beet juice and garnish with a lime wheel.
Combine all ingredients into a shaker with ice. Shake, then strain over fresh ice.
“It’s our healthy twist on a classic cocktail,” said Basic Kitchen general manager Ann-Marie Schwartz. “The drink is really well balanced with fresh citrus and earthy beet juice. A squeeze of agave (syrup) gives it some sweetness and pairs perfectly with the tequila.”
This drink was inspired by three things, Kiki & Rye and Community Table beverage director Kevin Regan told the City Paper. “One: (Kiki & Rye and Community Table owners) Kelleanne and Ryan Jones love them and make and drink these themselves. Two: it tastes like a margarita and is a simple twist on the simple classic while using fresh squeezed juice. Three: it looks and tastes spectacular.”

Pineapple coconut margarita • 1½ ounces pineapple tequila • 3½ ounces Mex 1 Margarita Mix • ½ ounce Coco Lopez Add all ingredients to a shaker with ice and shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Strain over fresh ice in a glass and garnish with a pineapple leaf. If you want to make this at home, substitute in a 100% agave blanco tequila and shake up 1½ ounces pineapple, ¾ ounce lime juice, 1 ounce simple syrup and ½ ounce Coco Lopez.
“At Mex 1, we are always striving for the pursuit of the endless summer. The Pineapple Coconut Margarita combines our love of tequila with our love for tiki-style cocktails that make you feel like you are on a vacation. The slight sweetness from the pineapple and coconut balances nicely with the tartness you get from the margarita mix. Drop in and ask for this secret menu item today.”

La Adelita Rose
• 2 ounces La Adelita Black Cristalino • 1 ounce rosemary blossom cordial • ¾ ounce fresh lime • ¹/8 teaspoon green brew glitter
• 2 ounces tequila • 1½ ounces lime juice • ½ ounce Orgeat • 1½ ounces Aperol • splash of orange bitters
Combine all ingredients, shake and strain over good ice. Garnish with blooming rosemary.
According to Kesaris, the drink is inspired by “Rose Tico from Star Wars, a key member of the rebel alliance.” “Rose Tico has hated the First Order since she was a child. Now that they are defeated, she has plenty of time for the simple pleasures in life, such as beautifully garnished margaritas.”
Combine tequila, lime juice, orgeat and Aperol, shake and strain over ice. Finish with a splash of orange bitters.
El Pincho owner Sandra Aguirre says, “‘El metro’ means ‘the metro’ in Spanish, so (this drink) was inspired after the complex rapid transit system in Mexico City. The metro’s color is bright yellow, which is the color of the drink.”

KISS ME KOSHER AND SEVERAL OTHER ISRAELI FILMS WILL BE FEATURED IN THE JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL

HERE WE ARE TELLS THE STORY OF A PROTECTIVE FATHER AND HIS YOUNG ADULT SON WITH AUTISM
Kiss Me Kosher, a film about two Israeli women falling for a Palestinian woman and a German man, will stream online Feb. 25-28. Among the list are several Israeli films, including one of Brett’s favorites, Here We Are. The movie tells the story of a protective father running away with his autistic son instead of taking him to a special needs boarding school. “I think it really speaks to you on a level of family relationships, talking about family relationships outside of whatever issues that family is dealing with,” she said. “It brings home the complexity of a family relationship.” Four short films from students at the Sam Spiegel Film School in Israel will be streamed March 1-10. The students will give insight into their work and discuss the films they made on March 7. Brett coordinated the screening by “cold-calling” the Sam Spiegel Film School, she said. “I thought it would be interesting to get a perspective of students in Israel and get them
to talk to American students.” The final film on the line-up is Shared Legacies: The African-American Jewish Civil Rights Alliance, a documentary about the collaboration between Black and Jewish Americans during the civil rights movement. Director Shari Rogers will discuss the movement in the ‘60s with Charlestonians who lived through it on March 9. “We’re really just trying to educate in general about civil rights,” Brett said. “I think we’re trying to delve into the issues behind each of these movies in a way that will appeal not to just the Jewish community, but the larger Charleston community.” The Charleston Jewish Filmfest will begin at 7 p.m. Feb. 18 with a program about Goodbye, Columbus. Head over to jewish. cofc.edu/events/ for the full schedule and to pre-register for each film discussion.
Redux Contemporary Art Center is hosting a two-person exhibition featuring local artist Celeste Caldwell and Washington, D.C., artist Mills Brown. The exhibition, titled Welcome, is running now through March 27. Caldwell and Brown created art for Welcome rooted in domestic spaces, featuring women and Southern traditions. “The artists invite viewers into the intimate moments contained in each work, and in turn we ask what it means to feel fully welcomed in a space,” Redux executive director Cara Leepson said in a press release. Using fiber art and paint, Caldwell depicts modern femininity inside and out of the home in Welcome. For her part, Brown reinvented memories from the places she’s called home through acrylic paint, oil pens and collaged photos. Both artists analyze the concept of the home through the exhibition. —HE

The Charleston Jewish Film Festival, hosted by the College of Charleston and Savannah Jewish Federation, is returning in 2021 with a focus on films that can educate and entertain in equal amounts. “I think that just by showing these movies and showing history, and how history has affected what’s going on now … We can show an appreciation of why it’s important to look at history, why it’s important to look at the backstory of what people are going through, and really listen to each other,” festival director Sandra Brett said. To keep participants safe from the ongoing pandemic, the festival will be online instead of at its usual haunt, the Terrace Theater. While Brett acknowledged she’ll miss seeing the films on the big screen, she noted the festival has used the struggles to grow. This year, the festival will stream films for several days, then host a virtual program with a speaker to elaborate and talk about some of the movies’ topics. “Since we’re streaming the movies first, we have a good hour on Zoom or whatever platform we use to discuss the movie more in depth,” Brett said. Past Jewish Film Festivals have had speakers after screenings, but discussions have been over shorter lengths of time. Featured films this year will include an array of genres: documentary, short films, drama and romance. “We don’t have a huge budget, but we do have as much variety as possible,” Brett said, adding that the festival is trying to focus on films that can educate. The festival will commence with a discussion on 1969 award-winning romantic-comedy Goodbye, Columbus. The talk, hosted by Jewish studies professor Ezra Cappell, will cover some of the film’s themes like the sexual revolution and cultural assimilation.
The South Carolina Arts Commission (SCAC) is accepting applications through March 19 to assist the governor’s office in its search for a new poet laureate. “The poet laureate’s role as artistic and cultural ambassador, representing both the voice and even the conscience of the state, provides a unique opportunity and platform to inspire and unite all South Carolinians,” SCAC executive director David Platts said in a press release. The SCAC will recommend poet laureate candidates to Governor Henry McMaster after reviewing the applications. McMaster will then choose who gets the title. The new poet laureate will serve a four-year term and will be up for re-appointment only once. This announcement follows the departure of Marjory Wentworth in October after her 17-year tenure as poet laureate. Wentworth left the job in the hopes of getting new blood in the position, she told the City Paper. On her way out, she also suggested the title needed to be revamped. “It’s something that needs to be supported through the Governor’s Office,” she said, adding at the time that Gov. Mark Sanford was the last state leader to bolster a poet laureate. To apply to be the state’s next poet laureate, head over to the S.C. Arts Commission’s website. —Heath Ellison
a la carte LEWIS BARBECUE EXPANDING TO GREENVILLE
Charleston favorite Lewis Barbecue announced it will expand to Greenville in 2022. It’s been a big month for pitmaster John Lewis, who recently revealed that his Mexican-inspired concept in Charleston Juan Luis would take over the space currently occupied by Workshop this fall. In Greenville, Lewis Barbecue will take over Tommy’s Country Ham House, which will close in May. After renovations are complete, Lewis will serve the same brand of Central Texas-inspired fare found in Charleston, with favorites like his awardwinning brisket, pork spareribs, pulled pork, turkey and hot guts sausage. The new restaurant, located a mile and a half north of recently rebranded Greenville transplant Husk Barbecue, will feature a large smokehouse with custom-made pits, along with indoor and outdoor seating. “Since moving to South Carolina six years ago, I’ve been blown away by the way locals love food, especially barbecue,” Lewis said in a press release. “We’ve welcomed a lot of Greenville folks to our Charleston spot, and I can’t wait to set up shop there permanently and be a part of the city’s vibrant community.” Lewis Barbecue Greenville is targeting an early 2022 opening date.

Shiki readies dining room for reopening with completely upgraded interior
CHARLESTON CITY PAPER 02.17.2021
BY PARKER MILNER
Shiki owner Hae Gon “David” Park is a firm believer in traditional Japanese cuisine that allows the ingredients to shine, and for the last 20 years, the restaurant’s basic decor has reflected that approach. The pandemic, however, led David and his son James, Shiki’s general manager, to embrace change and completely revamp the restaurant’s interior, which features a new sushi bar, floors, furniture and custom decorations. “At first, it was really scary because we didn’t know what was going to happen,” James said. “The restaurant had to be closed, so if any work was going to be done, it was going to be now. I think sometime in July was when we really put our foot down and said, ‘OK, we have to start using this time to fix the place up.’” David opened Shiki at 334 E. Bay St. in 2001 after moving to Charleston from New York City, where he worked at esteemed sushi restaurants like Yuraku, serving as head sushi chef for five years. The chef prides himself on sourcing the highest-quality ingredients — according to James, his father’s handling of the fresh catch is what sets Shiki apart. “He does a really good job taking care of (the fish). We all have access to the same suppliers and what not, so I think a lot of the importance comes down to how the chef takes care of it, manages the inventory and things like that,” James said. Diners who come in for fresh sashimi, nigiri or a roll can grab a seat at the brand new sushi bar, just one of many upgrades the Parks have made since July. “We took out the carpet and put these wood floors in,” James said. “We painted everything — the wood panels, the walls, the window trim. We got pretty much all new furniture, new tables, and we’ve got a new banquette coming in.” According to James, Shiki’s key new design element is the custom-made wooden slats, crafted by New York artisan Wang Pu, that are scattered throughout the restaurant. The decorative and functional pieces give Shiki the striking decor that’s been missing for the last 20 years, James said. “I think for us, it was appropriate to make all these changes,” he said. “(Customers) called it charming, but I don’t know if it was exactly that.”
CHARLES TOWNE FERMENTORY REOPENS TAPROOM AFTER 11-MONTH PANDEMIC CLOSURE
JAMES PARK, MISA CHEN, AND HAE GON PARK “DAVID” ADDED A NEW SUSHI BAR, FURNITURE AND OTHER CUSTOM DECORATIONS AMID THE PANDEMIC
Shiki’s new look won’t be met with sweeping menu changes, but there could be a few new additions. “I really want to do ramen, more curries and katsu sandos,” James said. “But, we’re not going to change the menu too much. We want to stick to what we’ve been doing.” Shiki’s expansive menu features stir-fried noodles, sushi rolls, teriyaki chicken and more, but David specializes in nigiri and sashimi, serving raw bites of over 20 different types of seafood. “I think people come here for our salmon,” James said. “If they have it, we always buy it from the Faroe Islands — they’re known to be one of the better suppliers of salmon. If not there, we get it from Scotland.” The family owned and operated business has stood the test of time — James remembers the days when Blockbuster was a few doors down and the waterfront condos behind the restaurant were vacant land.

And while the Parks have kept Shiki afloat with takeout-only service throughout the pandemic, the restaurant has not set a reopening date for their revamped dining room. “When we open, we want to do half capacity first until the vaccines really triple down,” James said. “We’ll have everyone separated.” For James, who grew up in the restaurant, the first day customers see the new-and-improved Shiki will be an unforgettable experience. “My dad works here, my mom works here, this is more home to us than home,” James said. “Some of our customers that our regulars are like family to us, so it was pride that really motivated us to make this place as good as it can be.”
Charles Towne Fermentory’s Avondale taproom is now open for the first time since March 2020. The brewery will continue to offer online ordering and curbside pick-up and is encouraging customers to download the Arryved app, which provides a contactfree way for patrons to open and close tabs. “We’ve been obviously trying to make the socially conscious decision on when to reopen and on top of that, we’ve been really fortunate to have a lot of support from our customers throughout the year,” said Charles Towne Fermentory founder and head brewer Adam Goodwin. Charles Towne Fermentory has implemented several safety precautions since reopening its taproom last week, including limited seating and a mask requirement for patrons who get up from their table. The Arryved iPhone app will also help limit contact between customers and brewery employees, Goodwin said. Commonhouse Aleworks, Indigo Reef Brewing Company, Oak Road Brewery and Brewlab also use Arryved locally. Initial opening hours are from 2-8 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 2-9 p.m. Friday, 12-9 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Sunday. For more information, visit chsfermentory. com. —PM

Free Will Astrology ARIES (March 21-April 19): Atheists like to confront religious people with accusations like this: “If God is so good, why does he allow suffering in the world?” Their simplistic, childish idea of God as some sort of Moral Policeman is ignorant of the lush range of ruminations about the Divine as offered down through the ages by poets, novelists, philosophers and theologians. For example, poet Stéphane Mallarmé wrote, “Spirit cares for nothing except universal musicality.” He suggested that the Supreme Intelligence is an artist making music and telling stories. And as you know, music and stories include all human adventures, not just the happy stuff. I bring these thoughts to your attention, Aries, because the coming weeks will be a favorable time to honor and celebrate the marvelously rich stories of your own life — and to feel gratitude for the full range of experience with which they have blessed you. PS: Now is also a favorable phase to rethink and reconfigure your answers to the Big Questions. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Blogger Rachel C. Lewis confides, “I love being horribly straightforward. I love sending reckless text messages and telling people I love them and telling people they are absolutely magical humans and I cannot believe they really exist. I love saying, ‘Kiss me harder,’ and ‘You’re a good person,’ and, ‘You brighten my day.’” What would your unique version of Lewis’s forthrightness be like, Taurus? What brazen praise would you offer? What declarations of affection and care would you unleash? What naked confessions might you reveal? The coming days will be a favorable time to explore these possibilities. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): It’s a good time to become more of who you are by engaging with more of what you are not. Get in the mood for this heroic exercise by studying the following rant by Gemini poet Adam Zagajewski (who writes in Polish), translated by Gemini poet Clare Cavanaugh: “Read for yourselves, read for the sake of your inspiration, for the sweet turmoil in your lovely head. But also read against yourselves, read for questioning and impotence, for despair and erudition, read the dry, sardonic remarks of cynical philosophers. Read those whose darkness or malice or madness or greatness you can’t yet understand, because only in this way will you grow, outlive yourself and become what you are.” CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’re on the verge of breakthroughs. You’re ready to explore frontiers, at least in your imagination. You’re brave enough to go further and try harder than you’ve been able to before. With that in mind, here’s a highly apropos idea from Cancerian novelist Tom Robbins. He writes, “If you take any activity, any art, any discipline, any skill, take it and push it as far as it will go, push it beyond where it has ever been before, push it to the wildest edge of edges, then you force it into the realm of magic.” (I might use the word “coax” or “nudge” instead of “force” in Robbins’ statement.) LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): In her story, “Homelanding,” Margaret Atwood writes, “Take me to your trees. Take me to your breakfasts, your sunsets, your bad dreams, your shoes. Take me to your fingers.” I’d love you to express requests like that. It’s a favorable time for you to delve deeper into the mysteries of people you care about. You will generate healing and blessings by cultivating reverent curiosity and smart empathy and crafty intimacy. Find out more about your best allies! VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’re about to reach the end of your phase of correction and adjustment. To mark this momentous transition, and to honor your ever-increasing ability to negotiate with your demons, I offer you the following inspirational proclamation by poet Jeannette Napolitano: “I don’t want to look back in five years’ time and think, ‘We could have been magnificent, but I was afraid.’ In five years, I want to tell of how fear tried to cheat me out of the best thing in life, and I didn’t let it.” LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): It’s not a good time for you to be obsessed with vague abstractions, fear-based fantasies and imaginary possibilities. But it is a favorable phase to rise up in behalf of intimate, practical changes. At least for now, I also

want to advise you not to be angry and militant about big, complicated issues that you have little power to affect. On the other hand, I encourage you to get inspired and aggressive about injustices you can truly help fix and erroneous approaches you can correct and close-at-hand dilemmas for which you can summon constructive solutions. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “The most beautiful things are those that madness prompts and reason writes,” declared author André Gide. As a writer myself, I will testify to the truth of that formulation. But, what about those of you who aren’t poets and novelists and essayists? Here’s how I would alter Gide’s statement to fit you: “The most beautiful things are those that rapture prompts and reason refines.” Or maybe this: “The most beautiful things are those that experimentation finds and reason uses.” Or how about this one: “The most beautiful things are those that wildness generates and reason enhances.” Any and all of those dynamics will be treasures for you in the coming weeks. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The poet Nayyirah Waheed has some advice I want you to hear. She writes, “Be easy. Take your time. You are coming home to yourself.” I will add that from my astrological perspective, the coming weeks will indeed be a time for you to relax more deeply into yourself — to welcome yourself fully into your unique destiny; to forgive yourself for what you imagine are your flaws; to not wish you were someone else pursuing a different path; to be at peace and in harmony with the exact life you have. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “The chief object of education is not to learn things but to unlearn things,” wrote author G. K. Chesterton. He was exaggerating for dramatic effect when he said that, as he often did. The more nuanced truth is that one of the central aims of education is to learn things, and another very worthy aim is to unlearn things. I believe you are currently in a phase when you should put an emphasis on unlearning things that are irrelevant and meaningless and obstructive. This will be excellent preparation for your next phase, which will be learning a lot of useful and vitalizing new things. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Sergei Rachmaninoff (1873–1943) ultimately became one of the 20th century’s most renowned composers. But his career had a rough start. Symphony No. 1, his first major work, was panned by critics, sending him into a four-year depression. Eventually he recovered. His next major composition, Piano Concerto No. 2, was well-received. I don’t anticipate that your rookie offerings or new work will get the kind of terrible reviews that Rachmaninoff’s did. But at least initially, there may be no great reviews, and possibly even indifference. Keep the faith, my dear. Don’t falter in carrying out your vision of the future. The rewards will come in due time. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Ancient Greek playwright Euripides was popular and influential — and remains so to this day, 2,400 years later. But there’s a curiously boring aspect in five of his plays, Andromache, Alcestis, Helen, Medea and The Bacchae. They all have the same exact ending: six lines, spoken by a chorus, that basically say the gods are unpredictable. Was Euripides lazy? Trying too hard to drive home the point? Or were the endings added later by an editor? Scholars disagree. The main reason I’m bringing this to your attention is to encourage you to avoid similar behavior. I think it’s very important that the stories you’re living right now have different endings than all the stories of your past.

LITTLE BIRD RECORDED AND SELF-PRODUCED THE PROXIMA TRILOGY AT HOME DURING THE PANDEMIC
Space Odyssey Little Bird goes to the moon on sci-fi-influenced EP trilogy
CHARLESTON CITY PAPER 02.17.2021
BY HEATH ELLISON
Little Bird is one of those local bands that’s always strayed from conventional subgenres. The group is an indie band that improvises on chord structures found in jazz. It’s R&B that flirts with psychedelic hooks and crescendos. Or, maybe the band is neo-soul with a soft rock edge. At this point, it’s no surprise Little Bird decided to add another unpredictable element, science fiction, to the stew with its upcoming trilogy of EPs, Proxima. “I had been thinking about a project that dealt with this, and for some reason ‘Proxima’ just spoke to me in a way,” said keyboardist Noah Jones. “It got me thinking about what is next, what is beyond, what’s in front of us as individuals and as a species. It all really kind of hit and clicked right when quarantine hit.” The first part of the project, Proxima: Alpha, tells the story of an alien explorer coming to Earth and witnessing everyday life for humans. “The perspective of the record is if you were from very far away, from Proxima Centauri, and you came to humanity and you were observing humanity — what would you think,” vocalist/guitarist Jay Hurtt said. Most tracks on the album, which was released last week, use trippy sounds amid the mellow grooves and dizzying peaks to
portray the interstellar concept in a way that’s not too heavy-handed. “GHOST” shows the band pulling out all the stops to introduce the trilogy with an ethereal journey through thoughtful lyrics. “These words, I would die for/ So, I’ll never say anything else out here,” Hurtt sings. “All the songs, to me, talk about individual fears, desires, anxieties that all of us go through on a daily basis,” Jones said. “At the same time, it offers this outrospective analysis of the individual.” “HI MAN” follows another psychedelic poem centered on Jones’ steady hand on keys keeping the beat. Hurtt and guitarist James Rubush create plenty of sonic textures on the six-string to keep the song appropriately atmospheric. Between the album’s singles, the moody grooves of “SWIPE” are a better indication of what listeners will find on Proxima: Alpha than the friendly funk swing of “Mega Hot Super Babe.” The album’s hooks are easy to listen to, but the subject matter and occasional instrumental meanderings make it stand out. But, both tracks rely on the rhythm section laid down by drummer Oleg Terentiev and bassist Ben Mossman for their drive. “PROXIMA,” the EP’s climactic electro rocker, brings a firey and fuzzy build to Alpha’s alien introduction, while hinting at the coming sequels, Beta and Gamma. The concept, Hurtt said, forced him and Jones to pull away from the band’s past lyrics
about personal experiences. “I had to adapt some of my perspectives to experiences [Jones] went through. The co-writing process broadened the perspective on topics,” he said. “Through that process, I think we got this character that we made ourselves, two minds fused into one.” Proxima’s interludes help display the science fiction aesthetic seen in the project. “This whole entire project was definitely very detailed for us, as far as layers,” Terentiev said. “We meticulously spent a lot of time on it … We would definitely recommend for the listener to listen to [the trilogy] in order. You’ll see everything kind of ties in.” The Proxima trilogy is also the first time the band stepped into the world of at-home recording and producing. “Sonically, we definitely feel like Beta and Gamma are a little more mature just because of the way we decided to record this,” Rubush said. “There was a learning curve for all of us. Props to Jay and Ben, who have a lot of engineering experience.” The first in the Proxima trilogy was written over a year ago. The original plan for the trilogy was to release each EP, then record the next, but the pandemic forced the band inside where they just kept writing and recording. “Quarantine definitely just changed the plan,” Rubush said. “It just gave us time. There was no rush to release it anymore. We had all the time in the world to do it, make sure that everything was the way we wanted it.”

SARAH SUMMER IS TIRED OF VALENTINE’S DAY B.S. ON NEW ALBUM
Musician and former Charleston resident Sarah Summer released her album of demos titled, Heart-Shaped Bullshit, earlier this month. “The title track on my new collection of demos is the most literal thing I’ve ever written,” Summer told the City Paper. Summer’s lyrics call attention to what she refers to as the “mass production” of Valentine’s Day to tell listeners love is more than a store-bought teddy bear. The opening track, “Wrap Your Head Around Me,” shows how Summer can turn the world around her into an instrument. The last song is a cover of Willie Nelson’s “Night Life.” Summer takes this bluesy country song and transforms the classic into a refreshing, acoustic tune that soothes the soul. However, she does not deny facing some difficulty in singing the song. Heart-Shaped Bullshit can be found on bandcamp.com. —Katherine Jordan

The band will perform tunes from artists like Bruno Mars, the Temptations, Lizzo, the Backstreet Boys and plenty of others, according to vocalist Christian Smalls. The Black Diamond Band has earned its pedigree among wedding and party bands, occasionally taking its knack for funky covers of feel-good hits over to venues like the Pour House. The band takes influence from soul, jazz and the blues, making electric covers of pop tunes.
Formed in 2014, the band has gone through a few lineup changes, but has consistently been held down and fronted by Smalls. In recent shows, the singer has been accompanied by various musicians in her backing band, including the pros in Black Noyze. For the upcoming show, Tony Cobin will play bass, Greg Loney will be on guitar and Michael Stevens will take on the keys, Smalls told the City Paper. The event is a pajama and onesie party, as well, so Smalls recommends guests wear their “most ridiculous” onesie or a cozy pair of PJs. Tobin’s Market will serve brunch food specials, as well. Charleston City Paper is handling ticketing for the event. Head over to citypapertickets.com for more information. —Heath Ellison
