Rundown Academic Magnet again named among top American high schools
Academic Magnet High School has once again been put on the national honor roll by U.S. News & World Report, ranked as the No. 2 high school in the U.S. in its 2021 rankings. Charleston County’s school for high-achieving students, located in North Charleston, is no stranger to the U.S. News list, having made the top two positions each of the last three years. In 2019, the school was named the top high school in America. The 655-student school boasts a graduation rate of 100% and a “college readiness” score of 100, based on the U.S. News assessment. Also atop the list in South Carolina were Charleston School of the Arts, which shares a campus with Academic Magnet, and Wando High in Mount Pleasant. —Sam Spence
on Tim Scott’s ‘staining’ GOP response and why she’s running against him By Sam Spence
S.C. Rep. Krystle Matthews announced April 13 that she’s mounting a campaign to challenge Republican U.S. Sen. Tim Scott in 2022. After Democratic darling Jaime Harrison lost to U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham by more than 10% in a national-profile race during a presidential election year, Matthews hopes she can tip the scales for Democrats next year. But, it will be a tall order. An engineering planner for Boeing and a single mother of four, Matthews has never run a statewide race and was just reelected to her Berkeley County district for the first time last year. In each of her two runs for state House, she’s won with less than 9,000 votes. In his unsuccessful bid, Harrison managed to pull in 1.1 million voters. Scott is finishing his first full term as a U.S. senator after being appointed by Gov. Nikki Haley in 2013. The City Paper caught up with Matthews the morning after Scott delivered the national GOP response to President Joe Biden’s address to Congress.
City Paper: What did you think of Sen. Scott’s response to Biden’s speech? Krystle Matthews: His response was just horribly staining. It’s wildly ironic that while delivering an extremely contrasting speech of his own, he would call the president divisive. But, this is typical behavior of what we’ve seen, and so people are tired of it. CP: Was there anything in particular that you took issue with?

Crane count: 19 2 1
S.C. Rep. Krystle Matthews criticized U.S. Sen. Tim Scott as an opportunist KM: Saying America isn’t racist. Do you know how many white people have inboxed me in the last 24 hours saying, “I’m white, and I know America is racist.” And the godawful pandering of the line, “cotton field to
Congress,” I mean … Because Black people are not smart enough to know that he’s pandering, right? We’re smarter than that. CONTINUED ON PAGE 7

Analysis: SC growth could mean new House seat Top-line numbers from the 2020 census show South Carolina picked up almost a half million new residents from 10 years earlier, but its 10.7% growth wasn’t enough to lead to an additional congressional district. If the state’s higher-than-average growth continues, however, there’s a slight chance it could add an eighth congressional seat during the constitutionally mandated redistricting in 2031 after the 2030 census, according to an analysis by Statehouse Report, City Paper’s sister publication. Nationally, the U.S. population grew to 331.4 million in 2020, up 7.4%, or 22.7 million people, from 2010. Based on the 2020 census, six states will
gain extra seats because of population redistribution and growth — two for Texas and one each for Colorado, Florida, Montana, North Carolina and Oregon. Seven states lost seats — California, Illinois, Michigan, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. New York made headlines for losing a seat by coming up 89 people short. According to the 2020 results released last week, South Carolina maintained its seventh congressional seat through a complicated formula that produces priority ratings of population for each seat in the U.S. House. South Carolina had enough people to come in 421 out of 435 House seats in the priority rating system to keep the seventh
seat. That ranking also means 14 seats have lower ratings and associated populations. Minnesota, which scored 435th in the 2020 census rating to keep a seat, has a population of 5.7 million, which is about 600,000 more people in South Carolina. If South Carolina continues to grow at a higher pace than the national average — as most Sunbelt states do — there’s a chance it could pick up another seat in 2031. To do so, it would have to add at least another 600,000 people, but probably more like 700,000, over the next 10 years. But keep in mind, the 2020 census shows several states had higher growth rates than South Carolina. —Andy Brack
Conservationists applaud rejection of Dominion solar plan
The state Public Service Commission (PSC) on April 28 unanimously rejected a rate plan by Dominion Energy that conservationists said would have made it too costly for homeowners to add rooftop solar panels. Instead, regulators adopted an alternative pricing plan that’s being hailed as a win for energy independence and a victory for the rooftop solar industry. “Today’s ruling will allow this important industry to continue to grow and provide ratepayers the freedom to reduce energy bills and emissions,” said John Tynan, executive director of the Conservation Voters of South Carolina. “This ruling also demonstrates that the PSC is faithfully implementing the Energy Freedom Act, is standing up for the best interests of all customers, and is not afraid to push back on egregious proposals by the utility monopolies. In short, today is a bright day for solar in South Carolina.” Tynan said ratepayers wanted a fair rooftop solar plan. “This ruling shows a broader trend for energy decisions in South Carolina — that there’s a new PSC in town. We finally have a Public Service Commission that will listen to experts, thoughtfully consider public input, and encourage robust engagement from stakeholders as the Commission helps to chart the path forward for South Carolina’s energy future — even when it means pushing back against the utility monopolies.” Frank Knapp, president of the S.C. Small Business Chamber of Commerce, added in a statement, “Their ruling is also clear evidence that the Commission is no longer in the back pocket of the utility industry.” —Staff reports

Cunningham kicks off campaign for governor Provided
Former U.S. Rep. Joe Cunningham announced his bid for governor last week, kicking off a 46-county campaign tour April 28 in Charleston at Tradesman Brewing Co. with beers, cheers and a few jeers. With supporters like 7th grader Ivy Ward, S.C. Rep. Spencer Wetmore and Charleston County Councilman Kylon Middleton taking the stage first to get the crowd excited, hundreds greeted Cunningham, chanting, “Joe can win.” The brewery setting is a familiar one for Cunningham, who made a point to boost local craft beer producers during his term in Congress. Cunningham is throwing his hat in the ring to challenge Gov. Henry McMaster at a time when South Carolinians are itching for change, he said. “It’s been a tough year, to say the least,” Cunningham said. “We’ve lost 8,300 of our neighbors to the pandemic, countless small businesses have closed and too many have lost their jobs … But the fact is, South Carolina faced enormous challenges before this pandemic.” Cunningham pointed to longstanding S.C.
issues like teacher shortages and the lack of affordable health care as existing challenges that were exacerbated by the pandemic. “This pandemic amplified every shortcoming that exists in our state,” he said. “As we turn the page from this pandemic and work to emerge healthier, safer and stronger, it is clear that we need to change from the failed leadership that got us here in the first place,” Cunningham said. Cunningham continued, railing against McMaster’s record and leadership decisions, including the state having been dead last in vaccine distribution, the state Department of Health and Environmental Control going without a head for nearly a year and vetoing bills that would have expanded infrastructure and health care. “It’s a good thing the governor isn’t a coach in the SEC, because with a record like that, he would have been out of a job for a long time,” Cunningham said. Cunningham was ranked as having one of the most bipartisan voting records in Congress during his single term before he was unseated by U.S. Rep. Nancy Mace in 2020. —Skyler Baldwin
RUNNERS UP A West Ashley woman’s car was broken into, and along with her credit cards, Social Security card and financial assistance information, her Dave and Buster’s gift card was taken. Nothing has been reported on the stolen cards, which means the thief is probably having the time of their life at D&B’s. A downtown pizza delivery driver told police that his vehicle was surrounded by six college-aged people who stole his restaurant’s car topper after he told them they couldn’t have his pizzas. Police arrested a man who played too many Tony Hawk video games as a kid after he was caught hitching rides on the back of horse-drawn carriages with his skateboard.

CP: What kinds of things were people messaging you? KM: They were just saying that it’s the same old rhetoric, the same old Republican rhetoric. And, some of them were even Republicans saying, “Look, we know that what he’s saying is for the base.” And, that’s not what we need here in South Carolina. We need somebody who’s actively addressing the issues. Based on my reputation in the state house, they know that I’m not easily swayed without information. I have to read everything. I’m known for that … because I want to make sure that I give the input that I have on whether or not I think something can be better, or whether I think something’s going to be problematic. But, we don’t have too much of that. People are very emotional when it comes to politics. What I find is that most of the time we agree on the problem, and we disagree on the solution, but there’s always a way we can make it better. CP: What have you learned since you were first elected in 2018? KM: If I could summarize it to one word, I would say the biggest thing that we are is a resource. Outside of voting for laws and things like that, one of the biggest attributes of being a state representative is being able to be a resource and help people unravel the issues that they’re having back home. CP: If you win a Democratic primary, you would be the first S.C. woman nominated to run for U.S. Senate since Inez Tenenbaum in 2004. What’s the significance of that? KM: Well, I would say this: The Senate has two seats. That should reflect our state as a whole. And right now, the two people in
them are pretty much the same. So, if, over half of the state is women, about 40% of the state is single parents and a large majority of this state is working families, who better than me? CP: When did you decide to jump into the race? KM: I decided a few months ago, after sitting and just being frustrated with the fact that I didn’t feel like working families had a voice at the table. CP: In his response, Sen. Scott mentioned his work on police reform — he’s been kind of sparring with U.S. Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., and others proposing police reform bills in the Senate. What specific policy disagreements do you have with Scott on the way he has approached police reform? KM: I’m still fleshing out his bill on police reform so I don’t want to comment on the bill itself. But, I would like to say that we do need to reimagine the way we do policing. You know, our police have now turned into a little bit of everything from mental health counselors to marriage counselors. So, I really feel like that’s something that is going to take a long time to flesh out, the problem didn’t happen overnight and it won’t be unraveled overnight. CP: Politico described Scott as “embodying the soul and consciousness of the Republican Party on issues of racial justice.” What do you think of that framing, and do you think he represents anything different from his colleagues? KM: No, he doesn’t. He’s an opportunist. If you want to know what the Black community feels about Tim Scott, you should probably start going and asking the Black community what they feel about Tim Scott because I’m pretty sure nobody would say that he’s a representation of us.

Use crane fee to fund affordable housing L
ast week’s new weekly feature, Crane Count, caught some readers’ attention as a clever way to highlight the abundance of development on the peninsula. In one simple graphic, it’s now easy to see where cranes live. Last week, there were 17 in eight locations. This week, there are two more. This crane count is more than a mere indicator. It also reflects how construction on the peninsula is tilted more to developers than residents. Would you be surprised to learn that the City of Charleston, when asked, couldn’t tell us where cranes are? That’s because there is no permit required for developers to share where they’re going to operate cranes as they erect more and more buildings, hotels and apartments in what seems to be an ever-increasing race to make a concrete jungle out of the peninsula. “Huh? No permit?” you may wonder. How would city fathers know where cranes were in the event of a hurricane or a storm so they could make sure they were secure? They
wouldn’t, other than looking up high in the sky. We encourage the city to explore and approve a required permitting process for cranes to be erected in the city. Not only would this be a way for the city to monitor what’s happening across the community, but it could provide a new stream of hundreds of thousands of dollars that could be steered toward something that’s really needed: affordable housing. If developers are going to keep building apartments, hotels and office space with seemingly reckless abandon, a weekly crane permitting fee paid by hedge funds and out-of-town investors would help to mitigate overdevelopment and fund more affordable housing units on the peninsula. In turn, teachers, police officers, firefighters, restaurant workers and others could actually afford to live in Charleston. We hear the city is looking into crane permitting. Let’s make it happen, city council, and use the money to build more affordable housing units scattered across the peninsula.

Cunningham kicks gubernatorial race into gear early By Andy Brack Former Congressman Joe Cunningham of Charleston, a one-term Democrat who lost a bid for reelection in November, came out of the gate quickly last week to try to nab the seat occupied by GOP Gov. Henry McMaster. “The challenges we face in this state aren’t because of our people, they’re because of career politicians like Henry McMaster who have been in politics longer than I’ve been alive,” Cunningham told Statehouse Report, City Paper’s sister publication. “And after 20 years of one-party rule and one way of thinking, it’s time for something different — something new.” Cunningham, 38, was born in 1982, when McMaster was serving as the state’s U.S. Attorney after being appointed by Ronald Reagan, the nation’s 40th president. McMaster went on to run unsuccessfully for U.S. Senate and lieutenant governor before being elected attorney general twice statewide. He later lost a 2010 bid for governor, followed by 2014 win for lieutenant governor. McMaster became governor in 2017 after Gov. Nikki Haley became United Nations ambassador in the Trump administration. McMaster then won a full term as
governor in 2018 with an eight-point victory over Democratic nominee James Smith of Columbia. So now comes Cunningham, who announced his bid for a general election 18 months away. First, though, he has to win the Democratic nomination. But by coming out so early — and with strong initial fundraising — Cunningham may just scare away other Democratic candidates in what is seen as a tough race for a Democrat to win anyway. The last Democratic governor was elected in 1998, and currently there are no Democrats in statewide elected roles. But Cunningham’s early numbers are impressive, as the candidate related: “We’re building a campaign unlike anything this state has ever seen. We raised almost half a million dollars from grassroots supporters in the first 48 hours of this campaign because people are yearning for new leadership and that’s exactly what I represent.” Still, it won’t be easy, particularly if you look at the solid red band of Republican counties across the top half of the Palmetto State. Not only did Donald Trump carry those counties convincingly — often with more than 70% of the vote in 2020 — but McMaster, who will tell you in a skinny minute that he was the first statewide official to endorse Trump in 2016, has spent years cultivating Upstate voters
The last Democratic governor was elected in 1998, and currently there are no Democrats in statewide elected roles.
as his base through a blend of wily conservative politics and appealing to Christian voters. But, McMaster may have some work to do to keep his supporters in line. Scuttlebutt is that Greenville businessman John Warren is eyeing another run for governor by campaigning to the right of McMaster. And, it could work. In 2018, McMaster won a five-way primary by nabbing 42% of the vote, but was forced into a runoff with Warren, who picked up an impressive 46% of the vote in the runoff. Coming that close might tempt him to give it another try as many Republicans would note McMaster, a familiar face with a thick grandfatherly drawl, is no Donald Trump. If Cunningham has McMaster as an opponent, the race would be more nuanced, a battle versus old-school and the upstart, of age and experience versus fresh ideas. But, wasn’t that the kind of campaign that Smith tried in 2018? So we’ll see what time and money bring for 2022. As Cunningham notes, “We’ve defied the odds before, and we’re going to do it again.” About the writer … Andy Brack is publisher of Charleston City Paper. Have a comment? Send to: email@example.com

THE LOWCOUNTRY’S LARGEST SELECTION OF LINGERIE FOR ALL SHAPES & SIZES

‘Cool, Fun and Beautiful’ Parklet spaces offer lifeline for businesses, unique experiences for patrons
By Skyler Baldwin
Charleston is often compared to European cities, with its ocean breezes, historic buildings lining narrow streets and array of cuisines. One of the missing pieces has been space to enjoy dinner or drinks in the open air, but as the pandemic locked restaurant-goers out of restaurants and cafes, it created an opportunity for owners to expand beyond their walls. By the end of last summer, thousands of small businesses across the country closed their doors for good, unable to sustain the lost revenue. Others held on, but were in danger of losing more ground, especially with indoor dining restrictions. In response, the City of Charleston loosened rules on outdoor dining and made room for new ideas. The results came in the form of so-called parklets. Previously only aspirational experiments in "pop-up urbanism," converting on-street parking areas into seating or social-distancing spaces found success in other cities. In states like Oregon and Utah, and cities like New Orleans and New York, streets became lined with outdoor restauAppel rant space, allowing patrons extra room to sit, and giving pedestrians a bit more distance from traffic. “During the pandemic, in desire to keep restaurants afloat and as an alternative to indoor eating, these proliferated around the country,” said City Councilman Ross Appel. “It’s all so still active and evolving,” added Jordan Amaker, Lowcountry Local First’s director of marketing and communications. “It’s been a good lesson for cities on how to act Amaker quickly and nimbly, which is kind of rare.”
But during the pandemic, acting quickly and remaining flexible was the name of the game. City officials had already lifted some restrictions on outdoor business, opening of sidewalk and parking
Babas’ parklet space was the first of its kind on the peninsula, making it the prototype for future outdoor dining spaces
Babas on Cannon acted as the prototype parklet on the peninsula, and just in time, if you ask co-owner Edward Crouse. He found himself on a call with Seekings early in the city’s planning process toward the end of last summer. “I told him it was a huge priority for us and that it would make a huge difference for us, for a place with only 20 seats inside,” Crouse said. “It would really mean the survival of my business and my Crouse livelihood.” Seekings replied with a list of everything Crouse would need to expand his already budding outdoor seating area to the street with the city's first experimental parklet. “It was a pretty steep learning curve,” Crouse said. “It was so helpful for Mike to put together a list of people that I needed to get on board … It was an easier sell because of our style — it’s a little more elevated, a little more professional; we aren’t looking to

Cutty’s general manager Sarah Griffith said more and more familiar faces are returning to the bar with the parklet space up and running have people drinking in the streets until 2 in the morning.” Not only that, but the location, being near the corner with a stoplight at the end of Cannon Street, meant that traffic was already moving slow, reducing the risk for visitors. The parklet was fully operational by September. “This just made such a big difference for us as a team because we could still provide warm hospitality,” Crouse said. “The guests can feel like we care, and even though we couldn’t take care of them the same way we could have before, it's obvious we love what we do and are doing what we can to make this experience cool and fun and beautiful.” Babas isn’t the only parklet on the peninsula — Cutty’s opened its own on Bogard Street a couple months later in November. Like Babas, the opening came just in time. “In that moment, I was just looking to make it happen as quickly as possible, because Cutty’s just needed to survive the pandemic,” said co-owner Ben D'Allesandro. It wasn’t an exceptionally popular space at first — patrons were nervous about drinking alcohol in the street, and
the colder weather made it less enticing for patrons to sit outside. “Cutty’s is, for the most part, a locals’ place,” D’Allesandro said. “At first, people were a little hesitant to be drinking their alcohol out there in the street, and I had to keep assuring them that everything was OK and we had been given D’Allesandro permission for this. “Now, everyone seems to really enjoy doing it,” he said. “When we were initially given the permit, it was the middle of winter, so the days you could actually sit outside were few. But now that the weather is perfect for outdoor dining, people really love sitting out there.”
A breath of fresh air
While parklets were popularized as a saving grace for small businesses during the pandemic, supporters are hoping to expand options for others even once things return to normal. “It's been proven that it can be done, and there’s been no real negative impact from it. It still allows for all mobility in getting around that public space. I think we should stick with it,” Amaker said. “Anything that removes red tape and eases the process for businesses to help themselves is a win, so this is a big win for us.” Car and pedestrian traffic may be one of the main concerns with using street space for seating, but some transit advocates said the spaces bring multiple positive impacts. “Simple, affordable, safe and accessible conversions of street and parking areas into enjoyable spaces for people should be encouraged on the peninsula,” said Charleston Moves executive director Katie Zimmerman. “Parklet conversion also changes the streetscape in ways that influence more of a village feel, encouraging people to move by foot or bike, or to have safer access to transit stops. “Parklets help slow the street, and are
ideal for a dense, walkable location like the peninsula where there is already no reason for motorists to speed,” Zimmerman said. “The pandemic taught us that a rebalancing of street usage is long overdue, and parklets are one way to get us there.” And, there’s room to expand the program Zimmerman beyond the peninsula. “I think it could work really anywhere,” Amaker said. “People naturally think of little alleyways and downtown streets, but it doesn’t have to be a parking space. It can be a parking lot, an adjacent abandoned lot — you can get really creative with it and make it work anywhere.” But, there are a few hurdles remaining to get to that point. “I think the peninsula is a natural place to do it for now,” Seekings said. “But, I am certainly open to doing it in other places in the city too.” But, Seekings noted areas outside the peninsula don’t struggle with the space constraints business owners see downtown and may have less of a need for parklets. “I certainly think it's something I like in the abstract,” Appel said. “Outdoor dining, especially this time of year, is very attractive, and it's something we’d want to strive for. But, some neighborhoods will tell you that parking overflows into the residential areas, and that makes it difficult.” But, those who have had a taste of parklets are ready for more. D’Allesandro said he has already been working with a team to design something more permanent, and Crouse said the whole experience has changed his understanding of the business’ relationship with the city. “I constantly have customers asking me how long we’ll be able to keep it,” said Cutty’s general manager Sarah Griffith. “Even as we begin to approach some semblance of normalcy, we would absolutely jump at the opportunity to make the outdoor space a more permanent fixture.”
lot spaces for commercial use, but state Department of Transportation (DOT) restrictions made that difficult for some. “There had been a number of people who would like to expand outside, but one of the challenges is different government entities owning different roads in the city,” City Councilman Mike Seekings said. “City streets we can handle, Seekings and we can work through them collectively and locally, but the county owns some roads, and the DOT owns others.” The different parties butt heads more often than you’d think, Appel said. “This dynamic pops up all the time,” he said. “Whether you’re trying to get a traffic signal changed or put in new equipment … the DOT says, ‘Maybe we will approve that, but you’ll have to pay for it and maintain it.’ “We get into this a lot of times when we want to do something cool and unique or out of the box, and it’s incredibly difficult to get it done. And once we do, we have to maintain it, even with very limited funds to do so — that money still goes to the DOT.” But, the peninsula’s unique landscape and multitude of local businesses made it an ideal space to give it a shot, Seekings said. The hemorrhaging businesses made it a necessity. “These new spaces, coupled with our lifting of restrictions on outdoor businesses in other ways, has really worked to help significantly ease the burdens on the restaurant industry,” Seekings said.

Keely Enright believes in evolution for Village Rep.
Pure Theatre rescheduling Constellations Pure Theatre’s planned return to live performance has been postponed for several more months. Due to an issue with the Actor’s Equity Association regulations, the company’s planned performances of Constellations have been moved from early May to October. Constellations will be presented both as a streaming option and live performances at Battery Gadsen on Sullivan’s Island. Pure is planning to use Constellations as a launch pad for a new series called October Nights. Constellations enjoyed a successful run at Pure Theatre in 2016, starring core ensemble members Paul Rolfes and Camille Lowman. It features an original score by singer-songwriter Bill Carson. —Michael Smallwood Editor’s note: Michael Smallwood is a core ensemble member at Pure Theatre.
By Kevin Wilson The Village Repertory Co. is a local nonprofit professional theater company that consists of more than 25 ensemble members who have been bringing dramas, comedies and musicals to Lowcountry stages for the last 20 years. Uniquely positioned within Charleston’s arts scene, its mission is to create the sort of theater environment that breaks down barriers between performers and the audience. We recently caught up with producing director Keely Enright to discuss the company’s long run, the devastating predicament posed by the global pandemic and her hopes for the future. City Paper: What can you tell us about your own background and education? Keely Enright: I grew up in Southern California. I graduated from UCLA and produced theater in Los Angeles after college. I worked at 20th Century Fox and for New Line Cinema before moving to Charleston in the mid ‘90s. I moved to Charleston on a whim, looking for a shortterm adventure, and never left. CP: Has being based here informed your approach to producing theater at all? KE: Having produced theater for more than 20 years in Charleston, I have really seen a change and growth to our arts scene. When selecting productions, I do try to keep our region and our audience in mind. Not always, but sometimes, I look at what might have more relevance to our community. For example, we did a play titled Ben Butler in the spring of 2019 that was all about a certain moment in Civil War history. While it might have been interesting for audiences in other regions, it really resonated in our community. CP: Is there a particular aspect of your work with The Village Repertory Co. that you are especially proud of? KE: That is like being asked who your favorite child is! I am proud that we have done so many genres of live theater, since many theater companies stay with one kind of tone. From the best dramas to the most absurd farces, we have done it. I am also so
Keely Enright and Village Rep. have set up shop outdoors at Tradesman Brewing Co. as the company restarts live performances proud of our set designs over the years. We are really known for the detail of our sets and creating the world on stage is a passion for me. CP: What sort of challenges did the COVID-19 outbreak bring about? KE: COVID destroyed us. Our overhead was so high, and the loss of the production income and our venue rental income was devastating. We stayed in the building [the company’s longtime home at the Woolfe Street Playhouse] until September, but it just wasn’t something we could continue to pay for without full-capacity crowds. Our landlord wasn’t interested in working with us, and we couldn’t sustain it. We now have three massive storage spaces around town housing our 20 years of sets, props, costumes, lumber, etc. Our plan is to continue with outdoor shows throughout the spring and summer. We are also bringing a show to Forte Jazz Lounge in July, and we may pursue more production collaboration opportunities in the coming months. But, our end goal is to find a home. CP: Can you elaborate on the upcoming shows you are planning? KE: Right now, Village Rep. is on the road. Tradesman Brewing Co. is our home
base with our outdoor stage and seating on the outdoor patio. We are in the midst of our third Music Makers Series production: Croce and Carole — The Music of Jim Croce and Carole King. These shows at Tradesman Brewing Co. have been so popular that we have added an encore performance at 7 p.m. May 13. We are also currently in rehearsal for our next production in the series: Summer Comfort 2 — The Music of James Taylor and Carly Simon. It will open at Tradesman Brewing Co. on June 10 and run through June 19. Tickets are on sale now at villagerep.com, and we are continuing to add dates depending on how quickly the tickets sell. I don’t have a season announcement for the fall yet, but I will keep you posted as we move forward. As we all get vaccinated, we’ll be looking at productions that we can do traditionally, where the actors can once again interact with each other. CP: Given all that you’ve been through in recent months, how do you measure success these days? KE: The success is in the patrons’ response. I didn’t realize that until we were closed for so many months. To see how your work affects the audience is the single most gratifying aspect of this work.

Bok Choy Boy owner Set Sison prides himself on spice and texture
Meet the chef working the wok at Bok Choy Boy Asian fusion pop-up Asian cuisine,” said Sison, who had a change of heart after working as an apprentice at Bok Choy Boy owner Set Sison developed a multiple Asian-inspired Chicago restaupassion for food after eating his way around rants. “I just fell in love with the flavors.” Charlestonians have fallen in love with Chicago, where he attended culinary school before returning to the Lowcountry to dish Sison’s riffs on traditional Korean, Filipino and Thai favorites since his first Bok Choy out hand-pulled noodles, spicy Korean chicken wings and more at his Asian fusion Boy pop-up at Summerville’s Wide Awake pop-ups. And after more than two years on Brewing Company in 2019. The chef prides the go, the Filipino-born chef hopes to soon himself on spice and texture, which he puts on display with his house-made noodles. debut a more permanent destination for “We stick to our flavors — we like the balfans of his cuisine. “It’s funny because I was trained in French ance of the spicy, salty, sweet, sour, and we in culinary school. I cook American food play around with textures as well. Especially and Italian food as well. I had no interest in our thick noodles — we make it in house —

Bok Choy Boy’s katsu sandwich it’s made with rice flour and potato starch,” said Sison, who spent time in the Cypress and Rappahannock Oyster Bar kitchens before starting Bok Choy Boy. “Basically, roll it and sear it in a really hot wok, and you get that crunchy outside texture with the soft chewy middle. We finish it with our agave sauce based off a sweet Korean sauce with beef, and we garnish it with papaya salad.” Bok Choy Boy’s Dan Dan noodles have also been a hit at recent pop-ups, Sison said. “Our Dan Dan noodles are our staple. It’s one of our most popular items right now,” he said. “It’s spicy and has that peanut finish to it. Again, texture is there, and it comes with spicy turkey.” Growing up in Charleston after his family relocated from the Philippines, Sison has fond memories of his mom cooking classic Southeast Asian meals, but he only serves a couple Filipino Sison staples at pop-ups. “My mom — I think now she makes the best pancit, which I love so much and her adobo’s great too,” Sison said. “I love cooking it myself, but I can’t go change it. It’s that staple Filipino food.” Bok Choy Boy serves only two Filipino dishes, and Sison puts his twist on both. His Filipino spaghetti — a combination of pasta, sausage, hot dogs and a sweet, tomato-based sauce — gets an extra kick of spice from Calabrian chiles, and the chef’s lumpia (a Filipino egg roll) has notes of earthiness with the addition of lemongrass. Sison admitted that the pop-up life has CONTINUED ON PAGE 16
Frothy Beard Brewing Company will expand to Summerville this summer, the West Ashley brewery announced last week. Frothy Beard Off World, the name given to the brewery’s second location, will take over the space currently occupied by Homegrown Brewhouse, at 117 S. Main St. The brewery, which opened in North Charleston in 2013 before moving to its current location on Sam Rittenberg Boulevard in 2017, used its mascot Finn to make the big announcement on social media. The 40-tap Summerville Square location will feature several Frothy Beard staples and a rotating menu of guest brews, according to a press release. Frothy Beard will also make a few renovations to the kitchen, co-owner Michael Biondi told the City Paper. Frothy Beard Off World is slated to open in June, and the location will operate as Homegrown Brewhouse until the facility has been converted. For more information, follow Frothy Beard on Instagram @frothybeardbrewing. —Parker Milner

been a challenge at times, especially postCOVID-19, when increased competition has meant less space to actually pop up. Bok Choy Boy is already scheduling events for August due to limited availability, Sison said. “It’s a challenge because you never know what you’re going into,” he said. “You set up a kitchen pretty much every time. You carry your tables, you carry your coolers and you just try to keep everything to temp, especially during summertime.” Because of this lack of predictable job security, the chef hopes to soon swap his makeshift kitchen for a permanent space. “Moving forward when we’re planning for the restaurant, we’re going to change the name,” said Sison, calling the pop-up’s namesake ingredient one of his favorites to cook with. “We are saving up, so hopefully some-
time soon we’ll find a brick-and-mortar.” Once he finds the space, Sison will bring with him the experience he gained from a multi-night kitchen takeover earlier this year at Spanglish, when he served three types of ramen, selling out each night of service. “They were our first restaurant takeover. [Former Spanglish owners] Tomas and Lynda gave us a chance, and we’re so grateful for that,” Sison said. “Tomas and Lynda pretty much showed us how to run an actual restaurant and how to be successful.” “We consider Set ‘family,’ and he is one of the kindest, sweetest souls we’ve ever encountered,” Lynda Prado said. “He always displayed the utmost professionalism in the kitchen when he worked as a line cook for us and during his Bok Choy Boy pop-ups at Spanglish. He was always very humble and appreciative and bonded immediately with chef Tomas.”

Greensky BluegrassBOC2019 BEST DANCE CLUB! and Woodlands join forces Seasoned roots rock band Greensky Bluegrass will kick off its spring tour in Charleston with two nights at the Woodlands Nature Reserve May 14 and 15. The band just released a new collection of songs, Leap Year Sessions Volume 2, curated from a series of livestreamed performances in 2020. The Greensky guys have been making music together so long they played eight full-length sessions without repeating a song. “It’s a shocking statistic to me as well, it feels like,” said upright bassist Mike Devol. He was grateful to reunite for the sessions after four months apart from his bandmates, Anders Beck (Dobro), Michael Arlen Bont (banjo), Dave Bruzza (guitar) and Paul Hoffman (mandolin). “COVID has been a lot of conflicting lessons,” Devol said, but being able to enjoy time at home with his 3-year-old son has focused his direction. “This last year of being home with him at that age has been special. It makes me appreciate the balance I’m aiming to achieve with being home and being on a road.” For Devol, having live shows snatched away last year has highlighted their value. “I’m looking forward to really savoring it every time we’re on stage. You never know what’s going to happen. There’s not going to be any taking things for granted after COVID.”
As times have changed, Devol has seen a lot of his peers in the music industry focus on their overall health, a concept that the management team at Charleston’s Woodlands Nature Reserve aligns with wholeheartedly. “Our goal is that people come here and feel better when they leave,” said Vince Iwinski, the music and events manager at the West Ashley venue that rambles over 6,000 acres off Ashley River Road. Iwinski aims to make Woodlands itself as much of a destination for audiences as the music itself. “It’s not just an open field in the middle of nowhere. The site itself isn’t just a backdrop but a part of the experience,” he said. And between the camping program, onsite lodging and recreation options including kayaking, hiking and biking, the Woodlands promises to immerse you in great tunes and in nature. “We want people to come early and stay late,” he said, describing Woodlands’ atmosphere. “It’s not just a place to crash after an event, but a place to thrive during the event and after the event.” Charleston’s Ear for Music entertainment company is bringing its Safe Sounds concept to the Woodlands, with the socialdistanced pod format we’re all familiar with by this point. —Chelsea Grinstead
