Zombies for Charity

Is it too much of a bad pun to compare this event as so much better than the monster mash? More than 300 zombies gathered Sunday afternoon to walk and raise money for the Medical University of South Carolina pulmonary hypertension program. The rare but serious condition, if left untreated, can lead to

heart failure. Decked out in gore and torn attire, zombies gathered in Marion Square around 5 p.m. for the start of the walk. The zombies were a mixed crowd, some dressed in full zombie attire with realistic bites and blood, while others seemed to take the zombie-light approach of torn T-shirts and red paint. Ages of the zombies ranged from children to adults. When one zombie patron was asked why she wanted to participate, her simple response was, “Who doesn’t want to be a zombie?” The zombies departed Marion Square shortly after 5 p.m., dragging their feet down King Street escorted by a couple of Charleston’s finest. The official Charleston Zombie Walk page on Facebook announced Monday morning that the event raised $3,000 with donations continuing to arrive. Plans for the next Zombie Walk? You bet.

Halloween art show

Artists James Baldwin and Melanie Merz were artists in need of a studio. When they finally got one on a little street in Avondale, they said, let’s open this up as a venue for other artists to show their work as well. Thus was born Greenway Studio, an eclectic, quirky workspace gallery often frequented by like-minded bohemians. “Steeped in the lore of the pulps, comics and fantasy illustration,” says Melanie, they want to continue to specialize in this genre of work. “The Really Scary Halloween Show” will feature work

by two guest artists, Clint Eden and Matthew Paul Foreman. Eden’s photography is saturated with digital experimentation, creating bright images reminiscent of outrageous parties and rocking runways. Foreman specializes in screen printing with designs and prints inspired by Andy Warhol. The opening reception will be 7-9 p.m. Friday at Greenway Studio at 10 Daniel St. in the Avondale area of West Ashley.

Weekend. Nov. 10 will feature “The Evidence of Things Unseen” and Nov. 17 will be “Remember the Ladies: Women of the Hudson River School.” All events begin at 6 p.m. and tickets for each event are $10 for Gibbes and Center for Women members and $20 for non-members. The cost is $25 for members and $55 for nonmembers. Call 722-2706, ext. 22 or visit www.gibbesmuseum. org/events.

ctober in Charleston is always a busy month for the arts. With the weather being not too hot and not too cold, artists seem to thrive in the spring and fall. Since the weather was great, I rode my bike around to various receptions last week (of course, my poodle, Mika, was in my backpack). We were serenaded by a street musician as we rode up to see the new Artists Collective group show near Lower King. This group of artists normally sells works through its online gallery but has decided to put on a show in different locations every now and then. Mika was a big hit. Next, we went to the Southeastern Wildlife Expo’s event for the featured artist’s unveiling of the main image for 2011.

The Red Party is tonight at The Old City Jail. Call 577-5245 or visit for information.

Ride the B2B route

Charleston Moves, the area’s bike and advocacy group, is working to establish a bike and pedestrian route from the Isle of Palms to Folly Beach via Charleston’s battery. The route is called “Battery2Beach,” or B2B. It is a worthy cause that

should be embraced by area governments and businesses not only for residents but for tourism opportunities. In its effort to create the designated route — and there are obstacles to overcome — Charleston Moves is raising money by a “Rent the Route” campaign, in which people can rent a quarter mile of the route for $100. Money raised will help Charleston Moves in its efforts to establish the route and improve facilities along it. On Saturday, the group will hold its first Ride the Route group rides starting at 10 a.m. (please arrive

between 9:30 and 9:50 a.m.). One will depart from Isle of Palms County Park and one from Folly Beach County Park. Both will converge at the Battery at White Point Gardens. The event, which is free, is meant to raise awareness of the route and the Rent the Route fundraising effort. An after-party will take place at the Vendue Rooftop Bar at 25 Vendue Range. All participants will be encouraged to attend and enjoy lunch, New Belgium Beer (a percentage of proceeds will go to Charleston Moves) and live music provided by Corey Webb and friends.

Some Halloween costume ideas T

Business Review

Lady Gaga is a popular Halloween costume choice this year.


here’s not much about Halloween that I don’t love. Of course, having my birthday fall within a few days of the holiday doesn’t hurt either (hint hint). I love carving pumpkins. I love that candy that comes in the orange and black wax paper and tastes peanut-buttery. I love making my cat wear a teeny, tiny witch hat that my mom sewed for all the family pets. Oh, and I love seeing little kids in Halloween costumes. So cute. In the negative column I’d have to put haunted houses. Being so scared you’re in danger of wetting your pants is just not fun to me. Probably the best thing about Halloween is dressing up in costume. For most of us, it’s the one night of the year when we can wear whatever we want without people making certain assumptions about us. We get to indulge in a little bit of fantasy. Come to think of it, that might explain all the “sexy” nurse-pirate-schoolgirl-insert other noun here costumes that so many women wear on Halloween. This year, I think a lot of people are going to be channeling Lady Gaga who, if you think about it, is so perfect for Halloween. Virtually any outfit she’s worn can be replicated as a costume except for the infamous meat dress, which was definitely a sensation but so gross (and I’m not even a vegetarian). My favorite is the bubble outfit that would be a fairly easy costume to make. You just need to track down some clear acrylic fillable ornaments that can be super glued to a nude leotard. Add a blond wig and black fishnets, and you’re set. “Jersey Shore” is probably going to be big this year, too. Guys have their pick of Pauly D. (the hair is key) or The Situation. Think self-tanner (“GTL”), some bling, Ed Hardy clothes and, most crucial of all, a six-pack. Snooki’s look is so simple to replicate. Just

find a bumpet to create that gravity-defying hairstyle (or a wig), huge hoop earrings and a short, tight dress. Other ideas include some of the characters from “Alice in Wonderland” such as the Mad Hatter and the White Queen, Bonnie and Clyde (perfect for a couple), a Crayola crayon, Hit Girl from “Kick-A**,” an M&M, a cat burgler, Dorothy from the “Wizard of Oz,” a flapper and Wilma from “The Flintstones.” As for my own Halloween costume this year, I haven’t completely made up my mind, but I really like the idea of Sally Bowles from the musical “Cabaret.” Her look is the right combination of easy to pull off yet totally distinctive that I aspire to in a Halloween costume. The only real challenge? Mastering the art of applying false eyelashes. Happy Halloween.

Band of Horses comes ‘Back Home’


Special to The Post and Courier

Dawes Sunday at The Pour House Hailing from the North Hills of Los Angeles, Dawes is a shot in the arm for West Coast folk music. The quartet formed less than two years ago from the ashes of alt/rock band Simon Dawes. While it still features vocalist Taylor Goldsmith and bassist Wylie Gelber, Dawes also consists of Taylor’s younger brother Griffin on drums and guitarist Alex Casnoff. While Simon Dawes was known for its more straightahead indie/rock style, Dawes leans away from Phantom Planet comparisons and more towards the echoes of folk/rock legends such as Crosby, Stills and Nash and Wilco. Dawes will perform Sunday at The Pourhouse, 1977 Maybank Hwy., with Vetiver and Peter Wolf Crier. Tickets are $12 and are available online at www. or at the door. Doors open at 9 p.m. Visit or call 571-4343 for more information.

Dawes Japan Ten, believe in simplicity, a method that keeps the listener feeling close rather than lost or unwelcome. The quartet combines the pedal steel, violin, guitar and keys with seamlessly layered harmonies and complex song structures to make an enveloping wall of sound that swallows its audience whole. Sam Quinn and The Japan Ten will perform Tuesday at The Pour House, 1977 Maybank Hwy., with Michael Ford Jr. and The Apache Relay. Tickets are $10 in advance and are available online at or at the door. Doors open at 9:45 p.m. Visit or call 571-4343 for more information.

port Charleston Waterkeeper, a city project to protect Charleston’s best-loved resource: its water. Besides helping out local organizations, Band of Horses has been occupied with touring to promote the newest album, “Infinite Arms,” featuring the song “On My Way Back Home.” Lead singer Ben Bridwell chatted about the band’s recent progress, its musical influences and the reasons the members love Charleston. Q: Talk about “Infinite Arms.” What do you think is different about it? A: For the first two albums, we weren’t as solid of a band, for one thing. I guess the first album, in particu-

lar, we were in transition and getting our feet wet. With the second album, we were still in transition a little bit. But for this last record, we have everything in place. We’d been on the road for about three years before we recorded this latest album. It feels like the band is finally unified. Another major thing is that we produced most of this record ourselves. So there’s the sense of empowerment and exploration on our shoulders. We explored new things, which we might not have done if someone had been there to blow the whistle, so to speak. Q: What are Band of

Horses’ biggest influences? A: Being human is a big part. Our everyday experiences in real life are a massive influence. If you mean on a musical level, I’d say Neil Young, soul music, roots music, indie rock from the ’90s. ... It all gets in there. At least for me, growing up and listening to Neil Young was a huge influence. His guitar music and the higher-register singing inspire me. For the other band members, I’d say traditional guitar, classical and even rap for Creighton. And then Ryan has more soul than any white guy I’ve ever met. Q: Are there any bands in Charleston that you make it a point to see when you come home? A: I like a band called Company. They are fantastic. A friend of mine also has a band called the Outervention, and he’s a great songwriter. There are tons of people around Charleston making really cool music. Please see BAND, Page 15E

the right pieces to make up a good Pretty Lights track. For example, when I go digging for vinyl at a record shop or a flea market or even a garage sale, there’s usually massive amounts of albums to sift though, so it’s all about getting a feeling or a hunch from each record and learning to trust those hunches. I look for printing style like matte or gloss, visual aesthetic, color palette, musician lists and what instruments they play — basically, I form a snap judgment about each one as I go. Most get passed up, but the others get a listen on the battery-powered turntable. Q: Can you describe what this sudden rise to fame has been like and how it has affected you day-today? A: Being able to make a living as a musician is what I wanted more than pretty much anything since I bought my first bass guitar in eighth grade. I endured many, many years of financial struggle to get here. I was living week-to-week, and was sometimes even looked down at as pursuing adolescent and foolish dreams. So, I couldn’t be happier that I am finally

getting some recognition and am able to live comfortably doing what I love. It has all happened so fast though, and the biggest way in which that has affected me day-to-day is in the adjustments I’m having to make in the way I write and create new music. Relentless touring can be very exhausting, and often leaves very little time to focus on writing new material. It’s a delicate balance, and I guess I’m still trying to find an approach that really works for me. The new PL album was, for the most part, created during the limited time between shows, often in airports, airplanes, hotels and gree rooms. Q: What made you want to use a live drummer in your live shows? A: I just think it’s a little more exciting for some of the audience with a drummer. It was something that I thought would be cool at the beginning and it sort of just stuck. I am looking into expanding into having a lot of other instruments in the live setting. I play flute, bass and keys, so when I have the ability to bring that sort of thing on the road with me, I will.

Fairy God Muthas will rock your socks off


oug Walters and Ballard Lesemann have been tearing up the Lowcountry with their original tunes and off-tilt covers since the beginning of this year under the moniker The Fairy God Muthas. The two-piece act takes the name from a long-running inside joke between the members. They have known each other for years, and Lesemann starting sitting in on a weekly gig that Walters played at Art’s in Mount Pleasant in late 2009. Sure enough, musical chemistry was in the air, and the crew played its first show

under the current name during some harsh weather this past February . “Our official first gig out was during the great blizzard last winter,” Walters said. “We were playing and looking at snow and I took that as a sign. We’ve been playing pretty steady and pretty regular since.” “We were ignored, but we kept playing,” Lesemann said. Since then, the band has been carving its niche in the Charleston music scene. The duet plays original songs, which could be described as soul-drenched rock ’n’ roll, as well as reimagined versions of classic greats such as The Who, Neil Young, Jimi Hendrix and Louis Armstrong, to name a few.

The band reworks an Iron Maiden song with some country twang, and turns an Iggy Pop tune into a ballad rock song. “We might play a Stooges song, then we might play a ballad or a Bob Dylan deep cut,” Walters said. “A lot of different colors going on. We’re both on the same page on eclecticism.” “(Doug) can take a standard and stretch it out and make it his own,” Lesemann said. “The audience really has to know the lyrics of the melody to figure it out.” The Fairy God Muthas are not restricted to cover songs. Walters plays original tunes that he is written throughout his life, with Lesemann’s rhythm accompaniment keeping the beat. “Doug’s definitely an ex-

perienced songwriter,” Lesemann said. “Every song’s got lyrical punch to it. Every song’s got a rock ’n’ roll beat. Then there’s Doug’s singing, which is very soulful, with some blues and some Southern rock.” “He really lights a fire under the songs and the musicality is jellin’ really well,” Walters said. “We really learned how to play together.” The two have already played more than 50 shows in the Charleston area, and have a busy fall schedule, as well. The Fairy God Muthas were at Skinful Halloween Party last weekend and will be at Drop In Deli on Sunday on Folly Beach. The group plans to continue touring through the

been my philosophy. I don’t really look forward with any specific expectations, just to keep doing what we’re doing and having fun.”

And they have come full circle. O’Riley, Walker’s inspiration, will be sharing the stage with the ensemble for the Nov. 3 and 5 “Between the Lines” show at the Sottile Theatre. Annex Dance Company, a modern dance troupe new to the Lowcountry, will be performing with the ensemble. The show is a full-on

collaboration. College of Charleston’s School of the Arts is celebrating its 20th anniversary. Students in new computing in the arts major put together animation to play behind the performing musicians. “Everything is connected, and everything is a part of everything,” Walker says, describing the animation. “For example, a dot turns

into something else.” I pictured an image of the Evolution of the Species, and Walker agreed that yes, that would fit. Evolution fits for the show and for the ensemble itself. Orman wants people to come out and experience it for themselves. “The best way we describe what we do is by what we do,” he says.

Courage. Vigor. Determination. Verve. Skill. Pep. Know-how.


ntropy Ensemble views music as art that is personal. That may be why members have a hard time describing what it is as an ensemble they’re doing. They don’t necessarily want to call themselves classical. And they definitely don’t want to say they’re a Radiohead cover band. “We are being ambiguous because of our artistic vision,” says Andrew Walker, ensemble arranger and pianist. Javier Orman, violinist and artistic director, adds, “We take away academic descriptions and replace them with adjectives that get at an emotional response. We can say the show is intense. The show is inspiring.” Entropy Ensemble is known for the Radiohead Project. It started in 2007 when Walker was inspired by a Radiohead Tribute show put on by virtuoso pianist Christopher O’Riley. “I took my first piano lesson after hearing his music,” Walker says. Walker has since formed a chamber music ensemble with Orman, Lonnie Root on cello, Ben Wells on double bass and Stuart White on drums.

Phil Collins GOING BACK (Atlantic)

Ever since Phil Collins covered The Supreme’s “You Can’t Hurry Love” back in the ’80s, I suppose this has been coming. I don’t know why Collins waited a quarter-century to record an album of R&B classics, but whatever the case, here it is. “Going Back” features 18 covers of songs from Motown, Phil Spector and Dusty Springfield. In other words, for his first new studio album in eight years it seems that Collins has decided to stoop to the same level of laziness previously exhibited by the likes of Rod Stewart, Michael McDonald, and James Taylor. Don’t have any original material lying around? Hey, no problem; just release an album of covers and watch the easy money roll in. Seriously, why does the music-buying public support albums like these? I have no problem with cover songs, but prefer it when artists take someone else’s work and try to put their personal touch on it. Collins actually went to great lengths to make sure that songs such as “Going To a Go-Go,” “Uptight (Everything’s All Right),” and “Papa Was a Rolling Stone” sound just like the originals. About the only good thing I can say about this lame attempt at staying relevant is that Collins enlists the services of Bob Babbitt, Eddie Willis and Ray Monette, three surviving members of the original Funk Brothers. Still, even with those monumental musicians backing him up, “Going Back” still smacks of desperation. If you want to hear these songs, then do yourself a favor and seek out the original recordings. KEY TRACKS: “You Can’t Hurry Love” from Collins’ 1982 release “Hello, I Must Be Going.” I refuse to endorse anything from his current release.


Elton John and Leon Russell THE UNION (Decca)

Remember the ’70s, when albums had two sides and were meant to be listened to all at once rather than be doled out single by single? Apparently so do Elton John and Leon Russell. The two music legends have always been admirers of each other’s songwriting, and back in the ’70s the two toured together, then fell out of touch. Then John rang up Russell this year with the idea of recording an album together. The resulting CD, produced by T-Bone Burnett, harks back to the days of vinyl and AOR radio stations. John, Russell and John’s longtime songwriting partner Bernie Taupin all contribute music. That Russell penned “If It Wasn’t For Bad,” which kicks off the album, hints at the great music that will follow. While Russell does sing on several songs, most of the vocal duties go to John. If you are a fan of Russell’s early work, or of John’s “Tumbleweed Connection” album, then this CD is going to be like stepping back in time. “There’s No Tomorrow,” “Gone to Shiloh,” and “Jimmie Rodger’s Dream” all demonstrate why this collaboration, which I am betting no one saw coming, just might shape up to be one of the year’s most pleasant musical surprises. KEY TRACKS: “Gone To Shiloh,” “Jimmie Rodger’s Dream,” “Never Too Old”


Sugarland THE INCREDIBLE MACHINE (Mercury Nashville)

I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Most of the music that gets played on modern country radio stations is really just pop music with the occasional fiddle or pedal steel thrown in. OK, so maybe that really isn’t all that big a secret, but it always amuses me when pop stars insist on being labeled as country artists. Yeah, that’s right; I’m talking to you, Taylor Swift, and you, too, Shania Twain. I have no problem with either of these artists, aside from the fact that they claim to be country singers. Sugarland is another act that falls into this category. Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush both had separate careers as aspiring rock stars before catching the country bug and achieving fame and fortune. Sugarland’s musical output up until now has been refreshingly good. Both Nettles and Bush understand how to write a catchy tune, and the duo also knows how to work a crowd in a live setting. While some of the music on Sugarland’s earlier albums resembled country music, the same can’t be said about “The Incredible Machine.” If this new release is a country album, then I am Johnny Cash. I mean, come on; Nettles and Bush covered Dram Academy’s “Life in a Northern Town” on an earlier release. That’s a great song, but far from country. Interestingly enough, the album’s first single, “Stuck Like Glue,” is the most country/Americana sounding tune on the CD, even with its weirdly wonderful reggae breakdown. Elsewhere it feels like an album of ’80s rock anthems. Songs such as “All We Are,” “Find the Beat Again” and the title track are nice enough, but they don’t seem to have the same carefree feel as Sugarland’s earlier work. Fans will very likely still embrace the music on “The Incredible Machine,” but at the same time they will probably notice something different. KEY TRACKS: “Stuck Like Glue,” “Wide Open,” “All We Are”


Bob Dylan THE WITMARK DEMOS: 1962-1964 (THE BOOTLEG SERIES VOL. 9) (Columbia)

Some might think that the material on “The Witmark Demos: 1962-1964” is only for hardcore Bob Dylan fans. The 47 tracks on the pair of CDs in this set, the ninth in The Bootleg Series, are demos that Dylan recorded for his first two music publishers, Leeds Music and M. Witmark & Sons. Some titles, such as “Boots of Spanish Leather” and “Mr. Tambourine Man,” will be familiar to Dylan fans, but sound dramatically different here. Other songs, such as “Ballad For a Friend” and “Guess I’m Doing Fine,” were recorded for these demo sessions and have not been heard in an official capacity since. The remarkable thing about listening to these recordings is the fact that the listener gets a chance to hear Dylan as he was while still a young and aspiring songwriter. The recordings capture ambient sounds such as coughs and doors closing, as well as Dylan himself asking if they want him to continue with a particular song. Additional tunes found on the 2-CD set include “The Times They Are A-Changin’,” “Blowin’ in the Wind,” “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall,” “Ballad of Hollis Brown,” “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right,” and “Girl From the North Country.” Each of the previous releases in the Bootleg Series has made for some truly amazing listening, and this latest edition is no exception. Serious Dylan fans and casual listeners alike will definitely find more than a few more reasons to love one of America’s greatest living songwriters. KEY TRACKS: “Guess I’m Doing Fine,” “Boots of Spanish Leather,” “The Times They Are A-Changin’”

ou know the feeling. That first hint of crisp autumn air delicately piercing our stiflingly humid, unbearably hot, dog days of summer. In true Southern style, the season often arrives slowly, teasing with a cool day here, a refreshing breeze there, until Charlestonians are perfectly mad for some semblance of an East Coast fall. Interspersed with the giddiness of the arriving season, there always seems to be a tiny, tugging wistfulness for escape, but thankfully, that doesn’t have to be. Residing in Charleston and its surrounding areas is a vacation in itself. We have the luxury of 70 degree days well into November. Our counties are diverse, and with the changing geography and long histories here, just getting out and exploring can provide a sense of being a tourist in our own town, whether it is McClellanville, Bonneau Beach or the heart of Dorchester County. Perhaps it was the name, or the area’s 300year-old history as a summer getaway that made me choose our “Flowertown” to the west, Summerville, as a place to linger for awhile. While no longer the whistle-stop that it once was, the shops of the old pine village and the converted train depot are a great place for a leisurely stroll, and some good eating. Only a mile or two away from I-26 and Walmart, the historic district of Summerville has gradually been restored and buildings repurposed as the town has grown from 6,000 some 30 years ago to 33,000 now. I popped into restaurants and galleries, met locals and shop proprietors and took a tour of historic sites and inns to give you a cheatsheet for your own adventure, whether you decide to check into a bed and breakfast and stay awhile, or just visit for the day to get in some shopping and dining.

real taste of the town. Once a destination for snowbirds escaping cold climates, several of Summerville’s century-old inns are still happily accepting guests. We recommend Linwood Historic Home & Gardens, Flowertown or Tudor Oaks for a nice mix of history and new world accommodations (think architecture with swimming pools and wireless). If you’re spiritually inclined, The Pink Dolphin offers meditation and Reiki in addition to the standard fare of home-cooked meals and cozy rooms. For a more luxurious experience, you must run to Woodlands Inn. The refurbished 1906 estate is one of only four properties in the United States to receive the Five Star and Five Diamond hotel awards for lodging and dining. Notable publications such as Travel + Leisure have touted it as a top resort hideaway and dining destination.

To eat and socialize

If you hang out, you have to eat, so try Eva’s at 129 S. Main St. for some traditional Southern cooking. Serving the area for more than 50 years, the quaint restaurant looks as if it hasn’t been remodeled in decades, and we hope it stays this way. Classic breakfasts of eggs with all the fixin’s and heart-stopping lunch meat-and-threes are their specialty. One note: they’re only open Monday through Friday. The weekend warrior alternative is the Single Smile Cafe, also on Main Street. The modern coffee shop offers specialty teas and coffee paired with fresh pastries and bagels. They also have a pretty sweet lunch menu as well. Or cruise down the avenue to try a gourmet hot dog from Perfectly Franks. The eclectic cafe will wow you with a mind-blowing range of toppings. Specialties include pimento cheese, pineapple, cream cheese, “Aretha Franklin” pulled pork and Dr Pepper BBQ sauce. Don’t overlook Sweetwater Grill as a breakfast or brunch alternative, and there are loca-

tions of our favorite restaurants from other areas: Great ones include The Mustard Seed, Red Pepper, Kickin’ Chicken and Santi’s. For evenings, try delicious local Italian from Tomatoes. Or if you are not in the mood for pasta, stroll over to The Continental Corner Greek Restaurant on Richardson Avenue. They’ve been serving heaping plates of Greek deliciousness to appreciative locals since 1973. Wind down with one of the Woodland Resort’s after-dinner drinks in the Pines Bar and Cafe. Starting at 7 p.m. every Friday and Saturday, complimentary live jazz is played. Get there at 8:30 p.m. Friday for a glass of champagne on the house. Or for a more casual atmosphere downtown, try Montreux for live music and drinks. With an act almost every night, it’s no wonder that locals keep this place packed. If you’re more inclined to try a less upscale place, visit Upstairs at the Ice House. Famous for a selection of more than 100 beers and a serious karaoke crowd on Sundays, this place does not disappoint. Also on Sundays, roll out of bed for brunch at the tea room at This Whole House. The historic cottage house offers a delicious, all you-can-eat brunch spread from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Proper tea is also available in the afternoon. But a word to the wise — make reservations. There aren’t many tables.

More taste of Summerville

If you want to experience the flavors of Summerville in one spot, try the 9th annual Summerville Taste of the Town which will be held Nov. 7 (it’s always the Sunday before Veteran’s Day to honor veterans.) It’s a celebration of great food, music and the community, central-

Single Smile Cafe, 100 S Main St.

ly located in Azalea Park. This year there will be a special finale performance by the Parris Island Marine Brass Band. Food tickets for individually priced “tastes” are available for purchase; no item will be more than $3.00 (3 tickets). Hint: Local restaurants man the booths so you get a chance to pick your favorites.

Shop ‘til you drop

Summerville’s charming, historic downtown has sidewalks lined in American flags and outdoor rocking chairs, making you feel as if you’ve stepped into Andy Griffith’s Mayberry. Adding to the vision is a ’50s-era barbershop, small boutiques and one of the oldest pharmacies in South Carolina. The 130-yearold Guerin’s is complete with an old-fashioned soda and milkshake station and turnof-the-century apothecary furniture. I also loved perusing countless craft stores in the area. Highlights included People Places and Quilts, a sprawling quilting heaven in a refurbished 1800’s hardware store. Craft Happy and the Village Knittery are also delightful stops for the arts-inclined. For souvenirs, Marigold’s is not to be missed. The boutique offers beautiful vintage linens, antique furniture and modern, quirky accents. It’s merchandised just so that we had to leave before emptying our bank accounts. Also stop by the Art Central Gallery and Silver Pail Pottery.

More history + nature

Work off your lunch by touring some of the most gorgeous historical churches in the Southeast. We recommend St. Cyril & Methodius. Located in an unassuming theatre and movie hall, you’ll almost miss the Russian Orthodox Church if not looking closely. Also breath-taking are the late 1800’s Bishop Pengelley Memorial Chapel, St. Stephen’s Reformed Episcopal (built for poor freedman farmers) and the Church of the Epiphany. For the secular sort, grab a walking brochure from the Visitor’s Center to take a selfguided tour of Summerville’s historic homes and gardens. Keep in mind that this is an exterior-only self-guided tour.

The good news is that each brochure gives historic information about the structures and garden, so bothering residents isn’t necessary. If you want a little nature in the city, wander through Azalea Park. The 21-acre oasis is home to Summerville’s Azalea Festival in the spring. Don’t miss the water gardens, butterfly ponds, countless gazebos and sculptures.

Further out

If you’re up for a more active adventure and want to combine history and nature, take a drive to Middleton Place Plantation for wildlife kayaking tours, horseback riding and hikes, or touring the historic gardens and house. Bonus: Starting in December, Black Water Cypress swamp tours will be given through the spring. If you want a full day at Middleton, plan to stay through for a gorgeous dinner in the plantation dining room. Dine on delicacies such as panned quail and beef tenderloin or local classics such as shrimp and grits. Just make sure to call ahead for a reservation.

Theatrical traditions

If you want to take in a show, we suggest heading to the James F. Dean Theatre. There you’ll be able to catch local thespian group The Flowertown Players who put on everything from “The Philadelphia Story” to “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” If you go this weekend, they are still staging “Return to the Forbidden Planet,” a droll Shakespearean send-up with performances on Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m., a midnight show on Saturday and a final show at 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students. Costumes are allowed — but no roller skates. There are too many steps in the theatre! If you are like so many people who have come here, you will find so much to do, you will never want to leave.

Anson Restaurant Lowcountry, local and luscious BY DEIDRE SCHIPANI Special to The Post and Courier


nson Restaurant is part of the family of restaurants that is Dining Group South. In 1978 it opened Garibaldi’s Cafe in Charleston: It quickly was followed by Garibaldi’s Savannah in 1980 and Columbia in 1986. In 1992, it opened Anson Restaurant and the Olde Pink House in Savannah. We just learned last week that the lease for the Garibaldi’s Cafe at 49 S. Market St. has expired and a new Garibaldi’s may open in either the former Saracen and Charlie’s Little Bar spot on East Bay Street or in new construction near the Dockside Condominiums on Concord Street. Last year, Anson chef Kevin Johnson left to join Rev Foods. One stable for another, so to speak, and he has participated in the launch of Closed for Business (former Ravel), the kitchen at Monza and the routing of the Taco Boy taco truck. The folks at Anson hired chef Jeremy Holst who had joined Troutdale Kitchens as chef at The Troutdale (Bristol, Tenn.). Previous to this position, Holst was chef at Six Tables, a concept out of South Florida that proved the real estate axiom “location, location, location” multiple times over. Six Tables was set for food and service but never got the traffic traction it needed, tucked as it was in an outpost of the Belle Hall Shopping Center in Mount Pleasant. Anson has stood the test of time. The restaurant is tied to Ansonborough, the neigh-

borhood that was acquired by the “Commodore” in a card game, and faster than you could say “fold.” Adm. Lord George Anson was given the titles for the land now known as Ansonborough by his friend and fellow gambler, Thomas Gadsden. Anson Restaurant easily could be at home in the Vieux Carre of New Orleans. Its pale pink stucco exterior, the lacy filigree of its ironwork and the expansive French windows convey maison. Its neighborhood, with its share of Greek Revival homes, sports a similar architectural common denominator. Anson is both upscale and down home; Southern and continental. Its graceful space, the color of Tupelo honey, reflects the gentility of the Old South. Its menu, painted with broad culinary strokes, mirrors modern Southern foodways and traditional ingredients. Like the “terroir” often associated with the taste and flavor of wine, earth of another kind fertilizes your experience at Anson. It has its history with Glenn Roberts, now of Anson Mills in Columbia. Roberts recruited Mike Lata (James Beard Award: Best Chef Southeast 2009), now at his own place, FIG. Lata was replaced by the talented Johnson and now Holst, who came from the community-centered, localleveraged, sustainably fueled Troutdale Kitchen group. Anson continues to grind its own grits and cornmeal with a stone grist mill, pickle its vegetables, cure its bacon, process its andouille sausage and shop locally for its ingredients. It supports

Special to The Post and Courier

or lots of folks growing up in the Southeast, particularly the Carolinas, Sub Station II was a familiar sight, a precursor to Subway and Jersey Mike’s. And for many, like me, it was a favorite sight, a reliable sandwich shop easily worth frequent visits. In recent years, Sub Station II has witnessed the closings of a few stores. But here in North Charleston, one still holds its ground, the sandwiches served by a sweet, welcoming staff inside a

Dorchester Road shopping center that has likely seen better days. Brothers Don, Charlie and John Ruffalo opened the first Sub Station in 1975 in Sumter. The brothers grew up in the business, their family having operated a

restaurant in New Jersey for many years. When they settled in Sumter, they chose a location halfway between the town and Shaw Air Force Base. By the following year, franchises were launched in Charleston, Columbia and another was opened in Sumter. Today, Sub Station II counts more than 60 locations in the Carolinas, Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia. The quality of the ingredients isn’t overwhelming; like many sandwich shops, the offerings are borne from goods distributed by giant food suppliers. Rather, Sub Station II seeks a value proposition for its

Starfish’s Tomas Lopez highlights eclectic menu BY ANGEL POWELL

Special to The Post and Courier


omas Lopez has worked in restaurants for the past 13 years. He moved to Charleston in 2003 and has been the executive chef at Starfish Grill on James Island for the past three years. He is 30 and is married with four children. Q: You mentioned that you staged under several great chefs? Tell me which chef that had the biggest impact on your culinary career and why. A: I have worked under great chefs in many restaurants. I think the one who inspired me the most was probably Aaron Siegal, who was the executive chef at Blossom. His aspect on traditional techniques of comfort foods helped me develop an idea of what direction and genre of food I would lean toward at Starfish. Q: How did you come to work at Starfish? A: Over a series of searches to find a restaurant that I felt would be the best to make the next step in my career, I came across Starfish. I worked under chef Hector Gibbes as his sous chef for three years and then took over as executive chef for the past three years. Q: A lot of your culinary education came from cookbooks? Can you name some of your favorites? A: I would not say cookbooks but more culinary schoolbooks. Some books that stick out are Culinary Artistry, Escoffier and Repertoire de La Cuisine. I pretty much read any book I could get my hands on. Q: What is your guilty

pleasure food? A: That would probably be tamales. I was raised in California, so Southwestern Mexican food will always be a big part of my life. Q: What is your favorite thing on the menu on Starfish? A: That is so hard to say. I would either have to say the pork terrine or the fried green tomato crab cake Benedict. We have a very eclectic menu, but our specials are really where it’s at. Q: What is your favorite cooking technique? A: I’m pretty big on braising. There is something

about process, time and cooking tough, unpalatable foods to make them delicious that I enjoy. Great things should take time. Q: You have four kids at home. Do you cook for them? A: I cook for them as much as possible when I’m not working. I work so many hours, though, that the Mrs. does a good bit of the cooking herself. She’s a trouper. I think the kid’s favorite thing is when we make pizzas from scratch. It’s mostly the time I spend trying to teach them and making huge messes that they enjoy.

Emotional lessons about schools in “Waiting for ‘Superman’ ”


President Barack Obama greets the five children who were featured in the documentary “Waiting for ‘Superman’ ” in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington on Oct. 11. Sitting on the coach are (from left) Francisco Regalado, from Bronx, N.Y.; Bianca Hill, Harlem, N.Y.; Daisy Esparza, Los Angeles; Emily Jones, Redwood City, Calif.; and Anthony Black, Washington, DC.


The Washington Post



any documentaries make you cry. They often present seemingly insolvable problems. But “Waiting for ‘Superman,’ ” filmmaker Davis Guggenheim’s scathing, moving critique of American public education, makes you actually want to do something after you dry your eyes. While there’s little doubt that the controversial D.C. Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee, who appears prominently in the film, has at some point provoked tears, or at least spitting anger, there’s nothing about her blunt commentary that would make anyone mist up, as sad as the state of the District’s public schools is. As the film points out, Washington, D.C., has the lowest eighth-grade reading proficiency rate in the country. In Guggenheim’s movie, Rhee comes across as a heroic, if polarizing, reformer. There may be an unintentional layer of tragedy, given Rhee’s recent characterization of the city’s mayoral primary results as “devastating” for the children of Washington. Nevertheless, Rhee’s appearance will leave most viewers dry-eyed, despite the widely held assumption that she will leave or be forced out of her post now that Vincent Gray, who has been highly critical of her performance in the past, has defeated D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty. If there’s a villain in the piece, it’s Randi Weingarten, the president of the American Federation of Teachers. Her union, and its historical institutional resistance to such things as teacher evaluations, merit pay and the elimination of automatic tenure, are here seen as selfserving at best, if not downright harmful to children. But there are others in the

movie review ★★★★½ (of 5)

DIRECTOR: Davis Guggenheim. STARRING: Geoffrey Canada, Jonathan Alter, Michelle Rhee. RATED: PG for some thematic material, mild language and incidental smoking. RUN TIME: 1 hour 42 minutes. SCREENING: The Terrace Theater and Trident Academy will host a 7 p.m. screening of the film at The Terrace, 1956 Maybank Highway. Call 884-7046 or e-mail movie@ for tickets.

film with greater emotional pull on the audience. One of them is Geoffrey Canada. The founder of the Harlem Success Academy, a much-sought-after charter school in New York City, gives the film its title when he tells the story of his childhood disappointment upon learning that TV’s Superman wasn’t real and would never be coming to save him. Canada is among the film’s liveliest talking heads. He seems to get more screen time than Rhee and Weingarten combined, yet his sense of disillusionment with the U.S. public school system is palpable. Disillusionment, in fact, pervades “Waiting for ‘Superman.’ ” Mostly, it’s the result of Guggenheim’s decision to structure his film around the stories of several children across the country who are participating in the highly competitive lotteries that take place every year in successful schools for a limited number of openings. An audible gasp was heard at a recent screening when the numbers flashed on screen about one such lottery: 792 kids fighting for 40 slots. Harlem Success Academy is one of those schools; the SEED school, a public charter in the District, is another. Some the kids the film follows will get in. Most

won’t. We get to know all of them: Emily in Redwood City, Calif.; Daisy in Los Angeles; Bianca in Harlem; Francisco in the Bronx; Anthony in Washington. Their hopeful faces, and the looks of frustration when some of them don’t make it, are crushing. But Guggenheim is no defeatist. The film ends with an inspirational litany with ways you can help. The director, who wrote the film with Billy Kimball, and who narrates it, passionately, as a kind of personal essay, wants to make a difference, in the same way he hoped to with his 2006 film “An Inconvenient Truth.” As adults, he says, it sometimes feels easier to just throw up our hands and give up, rather than to take a good, hard look “at just one student.” “Waiting for ‘Superman’ ” takes that good, hard look. And not just at one student, but a handful. They deliver the film’s real message, though it’s one echoed by Rhee, who laments that the fight for better schools inevitably becomes “about the adults.” In the end, “Waiting for ‘Superman’ ” argues, it isn’t the people named Michelle, Randi and Geoffrey who matter in this fight, but the millions of Emilys, Daisys, Biancas, Franciscos and Anthonys.

As befell Macbeth, ambition will be their ruin. Only Helena escapes this fate, finding her “tall dark stranger” in the frumpy occult bookseller, Jonathan (Roger Ashton-Griffiths). At one point, Allen briefly invokes William Carlos Williams’ “The Red Wheelbarrow,” a poem about discovering profundity in the plain and simple. This is Helena’s gift, and the bitterness in the film is leavened with a genuinely moving love affair between two kind souls. “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger” is Woody Allen at his most effective, funny and devastating, a feast for the eyes, ears and mind.

Cyrus Buffum in the Top 5 of ‘Better Men Better World’ contest BY ELIZABETH BOWERS

Special to The Post and Courier


Coastal Carolina Fair begins today events: Petting Zoo near Kiddieland, Gate 2; Carl Brunson’s “One-Man” Band; live animals at the animal barn, exhibits: Senior & Junior Art, Photography, Crafts, Lawn & Garden; a rabbit show, flower show and daily arts and crafts demonstrations. For a full schedule of events, check out Page 2B of The Post and Courier every day or visit



The 54th annual Coastal Carolina Fair runs through Nov. 6. Admission to the fair at the Exchange Park in Ladson is $8 adults, $5 children 6-12, and 5 and under free. Greenbax gate admission: adult, 5 Gbx, children 4 Gbx. With a $20 hand stamp you can ride all day. Ride coupon books are $20. Visit or call 572-3161 for information. The fair has daily ongoing

“We’re the ones that have our boots on the ground though, that are working with the state and federal agencies to fix problems,” said Cyrus Buffum, of Charleston Waterkeeper.

yrus Buffum thinks it comes down to eyeballs. “Raising awareness, that’s what it’s all about,” he said. GQ Magazine’s Gentlemen’s Fund named Buffum, founder of the nonprofit organization Charleston Waterkeeper, one of its Better Men Better World finalists. Of Buffum, GQ’s Publisher and VP Peter Hunsinger said, “With the Better Men Better World search, GQ recognizes men who are not only making an impact in the world, but are also personally dedicated to a particular cause. We were impressed by Cyrus’s energetic commitment to water conservation. He took his passion and applied it to a greater good.” It’s flattering, yes. A little for vanity and a lot for having your hard work noticed, but Buffum says he is most grateful for how this recognition as one of the five finalists helps his cause. “If you were to go around this coffee shop and ask people what they thought the most important natural preservation organization was, some might say Oceana, but very few would say Waterkeeper,” he said. “We’re the ones that have our boots on the ground though, that are working with the state and federal agencies to fix problems.” The Waterkeeper Alliance is made up of nearly 200 local Waterkeeper organizations. All exist because they believe clean water is an equal and fundamental right. Buffum wants GQ to serve as a catalyst for making Waterkeeper a household cause. Last year’s Better Men Better World competition had a Waterkeeper as a finalist as well. Buffum says it’s because of who’s drawn to the organization. “Waterkeeper attracts a certain type of person. There’s no blueprint for the job. We all have to be independent, dedicated, passionate self-starters that take initiative,” he said. Traits that are just attractive universally, mind you, and that help keep the competition’s four principles — conservation, hunger, education, and leadership — positive and progressive. Other finalists include Tad Skylar Agoglia, the founder and CEO of The First Response Team of America; Kiff Gallagher, who founded and runs MusicianCorps; Jimmie Briggs, a women’s rights activist who started the Man Up Campaign; and John Prendergast, author and civil rights activist who helped start the initiative to end genocide and crimes of humanity in Africa with his Enough project. Buffum says, “If I were a betting man, I’d bet on John winning.” But if he’s wrong and our Waterkeeper earns the award, he expects the sentiment behind his speech will be like that of Obama’s when he was accepting the Nobel Peace Prize. “You take it as an honor of accountability.” Then you move on and keep doing good. The awards were to be announced Wednesday in New York City. Visit to see if Buffum won.

When declarer knows that his shortages lie over the defenders’ so that he cannot be overruffed, it is often better to play on crossruff lines rather than drawing trumps. West led the spade jack againstfourhearts,overtakenby East’sking,andadiamondcame back to West’s ace, followed by the diamond queen. Declarer covered with dummy’s king, and East scored his heart eight, but then tried to cash his spade ace,thinkingthediamondqueen was suit preference. A heart return would have been the killer here. In practice, declarer ruffed the spade ace high, played a club tothekingandfollowedwiththe heart queen, a heart to his ace and a club ruff. Now he ruffed a diamond back to hand and drew trumps, hoping that his long clubs would be good. When the 5-2 break came to light, he had to go one down. Declarer should have considered a 5-2 club break likely as soon as he discovered that East had only five spades and a singleton diamond. But there was no need for declarer to draw trumps. Suppose that after ruffing the spade ace, he had played a club to the king and ruffed a diamond. Now he can safely play the top clubs. If clubs break 4-3, South ruffs a club and draws trump. When West ruffs thethirdclub,declareroverruffs, ruffsadiamondinhandwiththe heart10,andruffsaclubindummywiththeheartnine.Thenthe lastthreetrickscanbemadeona high crossruff.

Johnny Depp’s first acting role was in what horror movie? 5. Bela Lugosi is best known for portraying what monster? 6. Name the villain from “A Nightmare on Elm Street.” 7. If you’re looking for a job on Crystal Lake, what position should you avoid taking? 8. “They’re coming to get you, Barbara” is a line from what 1968 horror movie? 9. Name the movie where if you watch a certain video, you’ll die in 7 days. 10. What is the name of the killer clown in Stephen King’s “IT?”

EAR ABBY: My husband, children and I were visiting our friend “Rosemary” and her husband. Our boys were playing with water guns in the front yard. One of them opened Rosemary’s car door to block himself. Rosemary, understandably, became upset and went to shut the door. As she did so, our son slammed the door and caught her hand in it, breaking two fingers. We apologized profusely, thought all was forgiven and returned home. A week ago, we received a letter from Rosemary stating that we owe her money for several weeks of lost wages. (She’s a massage therapist.) I feel that accidents happen and it just as easily could have happened to her if our

DEAR ABBY children weren’t present. My husband says we should give her the money because it was our child who injured her and it’s a way to save our friendship. What should we do? — “HAND”-ED A CHALLENGE DEAR “HAND”-ED: What your son did was unfortunate, but your attitude about it is appalling. You should not only reimburse Rosemary for the lost work, you should also offer to pay for her medical expense. P.S. Your son should also offer to do errands for her for a specific period of time.

JESSICA’S ANSWERS 1. Just so you know, I pretty much live for horror movies and the macabre so if I lose this one, I may cry a bit. “Poltergeist.” 2. William Shatner. lol. 3. “The Shining.” 4. “Nightmare on Elm Street.” 5. Dracula. 6. Freddy Krueger 7. Camp counselor. 8. “Night of the Living Dead.” 9. “The Ring.” 10. Pennywise. This movie makes my boyfriend cry.

CONCLUSION It’s been a while since a contestant scored a perfect 10 in Head2Head trivia, but Guthartz proved she was the master of horror films in her bout against Lewis. She’ll return next week to defend her title, but will she score a perfect 10 again when there’s a different topic? Stay tuned.

SYLVIA’S ANSWERS 1. I think it might be “Poltergeist.” 2. Tom Cruise. 3. Is it “The Shining?” 4. “Texas Chainsaw Massacre.” 5. Frankenstein. 6. Freddy Krueger. 7. I don’t know ... nurse? 8. “The Exorcist.” 9. “The Ring.” 10. I don’t like clowns.

Have I mentioned that I love Halloween? Nothing is better than getting dressed up, taking on another persona and having fun. There are plenty of opportunities to do that this weekend. Another thing that I love is supporting local businesses. To find a costume for Skinful Halloween, I headed over to Theatrics Unlimited, 981 King St. It’s literally next door to my house. They were awesome and helped me transform into a white-winged angel with a mask and lots of glitter on my body. (Yeah, it makes no sense to me, either. Just roll with it.) Speaking of local, I’m really happy with this week’s cover story. The pulse of Charleston extends beyond downtown. Summerville has a lot of wonderful treasures.

Thursday Tonight is the opening of “The Weir,” directed by Conor McPherson. Set in Ireland, this play focuses on old-fashioned storytelling and promises chilling ghost stories just in time for Halloween. It all happens at 9 p.m. at the Footlight Players Theatre, 20 Queen St. Tickets are $10 tonight. For more information, call the box office at 722-4487 or visit www.

Jack Nicholson is creepy in “The Shining.”



hile I’m all about a good Halloween party, more often than not I’d rather stay home with a movie and ice cream. If you’re similarly inclined, but still want a little fright in your night, here are some suggestions to rent before Sunday. 1. “Rosemary’s Baby:” I watched Roman Polanski’s 1968 “Rosemary’s Baby” for the first time last year in a doubleheader with “Bruno.” Needless to say, it was one of the most disturbing movie nights of my life. “Rosemary’s Baby” is a classic and a creeper, as Rosemary gradually learns that there’s something not right with the baby she is about to deliver. Rated R. 2. “Let the Right One In”/“Let Me In”: “Let the Right One In” is the original movie, a 2008 Swedish horror, kind of romance movie. I am anti-all-things-“Twilight” and “True Blood” is just a guilty pleasure, but

thriller movies for a reason. The suspense of knowing that something isn’t right in already creepy movies had me sitting on the edge of my seat – in the middle of the day with all the lights on. Both rated R. 4. “Zombieland:” For those of you who like a little more comedy than scare, ”Zombieland” is still one of my favorite surprise movies from “Let the Right One In” is last year. The world has been fantastic. It follows a 12year-old loner who’s getting overtaken by zombies, save bullied, and his budding ro- for a few remaining humans, including Jesse Eisenberg mance with the new girl in (the kid from “Social Nettown, who happens to be a vampire. The movie was just work”) and Woody Harrelremade this year as “Let Me son.

Kodi Smith-McPhee (the 5. “Eraserhead:” This 1976 boy from “The Road”), and is equally as awesomely sus- cult classic is crazy weird, and besides “Antichrist,” it penseful, vampiric, but not really that gory (in theatres might be the most screwed up movie I’ve seen.

It follows to-back: Both of these a factory worker with a mumovies are classic horror

tant baby as just weird and crazy mutant-y, sci-fi horror antics ensue. Unrated. 6. “Trick ‘r Treat:” A lot of the recently released horror/ scary movies that have been released lately have disturbed or bored me. But 2007’s “Trick ’r Treat” was a fun, quick watch. The 82-minute flick combines several ministories of a small town on Halloween. Rated R. 7. “The House of the Devil:” Last year’s throwback horror flick didn’t rock my world, but some of my horror movie addict friends swear by it. A college girl gets a babysitting job from a flier, and she’s supposed to babysit in … the house of the devil. It’s set in the ’80s and I, at least, thought it looked like it was made in the ’80s, too. Rated R. But if you’re looking for some older scary gems, “Jacob’s Ladder” (R), “Evil Dead 2” (unrated) and “Re-Animator” (unrated) are always out there, too.
