Chamber Music Charleston fifth anniversary concert

8 P.M. SATURDAY // MEMMINGER AUDITORIUM

Charleston kicks into high gear around this time of year. SEWE is the spark, and the fire continues through the Wine + Food Festival, Charleston Fashion Week, North Charleston Arts Festival, Piccolo and Spoleto Festivals. This year I’ve vowed to get even more involved and deeply experience each festival. I’ve always watched from afar, choosing to just dip my toes in our city’s big events instead of diving in completely. Not in 2011. On that note, I CAN’T WAIT to dig deeper into this year’s Wine + Food Festival. Food is love. Love is food. You dig? Follow Charleston Scene on twitter (@chasscene) for Wine + Food coverage and videos.

A Fashion Show

6-8:30 P.M. SATURDAY // The City Gallery, 34 Prioleau St.

physical humor and almost makes Carter likable, but LaBute reminds us of

Carter’s true nature. Jeannie, their co-worker and Tom’s pseudo-ex-girlfriend, is a stark contrast to Helen. Played by Sierra Garland, Jeannie is slim, smart and serves as an example of how vindictive people can be. Ashley Blair dresses her characters stylishly as young professionals. For most of the play, Coe’s costumes are too flattering. She appears too small to fit the vitriolic language that Carter and Jeannie use to describe her. Not until the beach scene does Helen’s costume reveal her size. Being that the play is about a fat woman, the costumes should make the actress look fat. LaBute’s edgy, modern style is matched by Thomas’ sound design. During each scene change, Tom changes clothes in a spotlight, while Mika or the Dave Matthews Band continues the momentum. The lighting design is

simple, keeping the focus on the action. Aly K. Howard’s simple set design works well with the play’s action: a tall cafe table for lunch or a bed for pillow talk. Each scene is set on a rolling platform for smooth scene changes. The restaurant scene lacks definition, though. It appears to be a private dining room, but through dialogue, the audience learns that Tom and Helen are dining at a restaurant. The complex beach scene is well-executed with realistic dunes and sea oats. Footlight’s “Fat Pig” is an intriguing analysis of men’s and women’s different perspectives on modern dating. Relationships are difficult enough without obsessing over physical appearance and the opinion of the rest of the world. LaBute blames television and magazines. The blame lies much closer to home: in the mirror.

CD. Local artist and musician Roberto Soviero did the painting for the cover art. The recording is available at amazon.com, DigStation. com, iTunes and CDBaby. com. Lucena’s web site is www. dudalucena.com. This ensemble can be heard 7-11 p.m. Wednesdays at the Charleston Grill at Charleston Place Hotel. It has established itself as one of the anchors of the venue’s weekly live entertainment cycle. Lucena is scheduled to perform solo at Blu Restaurant & Bar, 1 Center St. Folly Beach, 9 p.m.-midnight Friday. He’s also slated to be part of jazz guitarist Tyler Ross’ Jazz Guitar Ensemble concert 8-9 p.m. April 2 at the College of Charleston Si-

mons Center for the Arts. The quartet has evolved over several years now and it’s running on all cylinders. The record is great but Lucena and the band are even better live. In various configurations, Lucena has worked Gennaro’s, the Pour House, Charleston Music Hall, Piccolo Spoleto Festival at Mistral, the Diana Wortham Theatre (Asheville, N.C.), Pawley’s Island Festival, Footlight Players Theatre, Big Sur Spirit Garden (Big Sur, Calif.), Sala Baden Powell theater with the Outrossim Musical Movement (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), Los Cabos Jazz Festival (Los Cabos, Mexico) and the Cenpes Theatre of the Petrobras Company (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil). For those who have been

watching and listening to the band from it’s beginning several years ago, a symbiosis is emerging. And with this live record, it’s approaching full flower. Since playing together, Lucena, a classically trained guitarist, has become more jazzy. Hamilton, Baxter and Gregory are more Brazilian. There’s a confluence. It’s vibrant and getting better all the time in terms of its sound and its ability to transport the listener to that place good art takes you. Lucena is very personable and it comes through in his music. Like his music, he’s easygoing and soft-spoken. He’s quick to smile and very charming. I wrote of him a few years ago: “Duda Lucena is a creative

person fueled by an energy that is natural. The force field he creates is formed by tendencies that are organic and humane. There is a lot going on in his mind, heart and soul, but the purity of his efforts create an aura that can only come from a real artist: one that is purposeful, focused and moving toward the light.” Not too long after meeting and hearing him, I knew he had it. Whatever that “it” is that denotes the consummate artist, one who comes at you from his own space but is a fellow traveler at the same time.

Gallop at Mullet Hall on Saturday A

t the beginning of the year when I was working on a calendar of running and fitness events for 2011, the new one that interested me the most was the Mullet Haul trail runs, which will be held Saturday at Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission’s

Mullet Hall on Johns Island. Unless you are a horse person, you may not be very familiar with Mullet Hall. It’s an equestrian center on 738 acres that has served primarily as a location for horse shows and the PRC’s Harvest Fest in the past decade. Mullet Hall also has about

20-plus miles of trails that wind through a classic Sea Island landscape of mossdraped oaks, towering pines, farm fields and open meadows, which are ideal for a cross country run. Last fall, PRC special events guys Matt Rosebrock and Oliver Sendall were brainstorming ideas following the success of the Folly Beach Challenge, an adventure triathlon, and came up with the idea of trail runs of 10 miles and five miles at Mullet Hall. “We wanted to continue offering people something different to do and we didn’t want to do a 5K,” says Rosebrock. “Mullet Hall is really beautiful, and we felt that it was still somewhat of an untapped resource.” Because it’s primarily an equestrian center and not open for running and biking, only those on horseback have used trails. Those trails, by the way, were recognized in 1995 by Secretary of the Interior Gale A. Norton with a National Trails Designation. The honor is given to existing trails to promote community partnerships and to foster innovative ways to “encourage physical fitness.” Rosebrock adds that Mullet Haul will be “one of the first opportunities for people to scope it out.” Personally, I have not seen the trails at Mullet Hall, but I’ve seen photographs and trust Rosebrock. And for those wondering about dodging droppings along the trail Saturday, Sendall assured me the land mines are few and far between. The event starts at 10 a.m. Saturday (see box for details).

running, but only within the last year or so has an off-road movement of sorts started here. The big plus came in September with the Francis Marion Dirt Dash, a half-marathon and 5K on dirt roads in the Francis Marion National Forest near Awendaw. The second annual event will be Sept. 10. The organizer, Chad Haffa, was so buoyed by the interest in Dirt Dash that he decided to put on a new trail run, the Eagle Endurance Almost-9Miler trail run April 9 at the Francis Marion’s Buck Hall Recreation Area near McClellanville. And out on Capers Island, Barrier Island EcoThon Director Brett Carlsen organized the Caper’s Island EcoRun trail runs last summer and will likely organize

Underrated TV shows you should be watching

Y

ou hear about how popular “30 Rock,” “Mad Men” and “Modern Family” are all the time. But there are a few shows out there that aren’t as well publicized or followed, except for devoted fans. “The IT Crowd” has been one of my favorite shows for the past couple of years. To quote “I Love You, Man,” it’s “just delightful.” The first four seasons of the show are

on DVD (some seasons are watch instantly on Netflix), and the show airs on IFC. The show follows Roy, Moss and Jen, all members of a kooky company’s tech team, whose automatic response to any computer question is, “Have you tried turning it off and on again?” But Jen knows nothing about computers, even listing in her job interview that using a mouse is part of her computer experience. The British show is quirky, silly and an easy pick-meup. With just six 25-minute episodes, you can watch the whole season in about the time it takes to watch one “Harry Potter” movie. At first I thought “Portlandia,” a show that just wrapped up its first season, was just a

viral video. A friend sent me the video “Dream of the 90s,” (YouTube it), which spoofs Portland, Ore.’s residents. But, it turns out that “Portlandia” is actually a dry humor spoof show, also airing on IFC. I don’t get that channel, so I’ve been watching on iTunes, and cracking up. An early episode of the show follows two characters from a restaurant to a farm so they can get to know the animals they are going to eat at lunch. The show stars SNL’s Fred Armisen and singer Carrie Brownstein and has a few guest stars, including Selma Blair, Steve Buscemi and singer Aimee Mann. In Mann’s episode, she takes a job as Armisen and Brownstein’s cleaning lady because the music industry is

struggling. “Portlandia” just got picked up for another season, so here’s to hoping it’s still silly and goofy. After a bit of convincing, I started watching NBC’s “Parks and Recreation.” I’ve never been fond of Amy Poehler, and it seemed like a not-funny knock-off of “The Office,” so I wasn’t optimistic. The first season isn’t magic, but the second and third seasons make up for the first season’s growing pains. And Poehler’s character, Leslie Knope, grows on you. She’s just a super wannabe do-gooder, who really wants to work in government, but doesn’t have the best luck. And she’s surrounded by a bunch of sarcastic slackers. Even though AMC drama

IFC

IFC’s “Portlandia” stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein. “Breaking Bad” has been getting some good attention, including a 2010 best actor Emmy for Bryan Cranston, it’s still pretty underrated. In the show, high school chemistry teacher Walter (Cranston) finds out he has terminal cancer and decides to manufacture drugs so he can provide for his family

after he dies. Unlike “Dexter” and “Weeds,” where characters are fairly successful at pulling off illegal activities, disaster consistently strikes for Walter. The show is somewhat hard to get into because it’s best appreciated if you watch the whole season at once. But it’s worth it.

The skinny on the latest trend in jeans them correctly. “The biggest mistake would be to not tuck (a shirt) in because that way you’re losing that silhouette. Once the waist is defined, it elongates the leg.” She suggests a peasant blouse or tank top as two options that work well. The right footwear is also critical. “The flare needs to be draped over the top of the shoe, that’s important. It could be a platform, it could be a flat, but never a pointed toe stiletto. It’s the wrong balance,” Solomon says. Usually I try to avoid “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” but I saw a recent photo of Kourtney where she got this new high-waisted, flared jean look so right. She was wearing the 7 For All Mankind Georgia flares I’m

currently loving and paired them with a pink blouse she’d tucked in and a thin belt to help define the waist. Jessica Alba wore hers with a tank top, skinny belt and wedges while Audrina Patridge chose a tucked-in longsleeved tee, belt and platforms. All three demonstrate a long fluid silhouette that looks really fresh this spring. The other high end jean I really like is J. Brand, which has done several versions of the flared jean. For budget conscious types like myself, the Gap has some good options already in stores. Remember, though, fit and proportion are important. Once you find the right pair, however, you’ll be able to rock these jeans right into Fall because this wide-leg trend looks like it’s staying put for a while.

n the immortal words of Bob Dylan, “The times, they are a’changin’.” It’s doubtful he was talking about denim when he wrote those lyrics, but when it comes to the end of the Skinny Jean Era, he couldn’t be more right. For the past several years, skinny jeans (along with the even skinnier cigarette jean and the so-skinny-it’s-ridiculous jeggings) have held sway as the cool jean you couldn’t live without.

Never mind that they were so tight, you almost couldn’t breathe in them or fish even a stick of gum out of one of the pockets. So perhaps it was inevitable that a new denim silhouette would appear. And since fashion loves to borrow from the past, this silhouette is straight out of the Disco era. It’s high-waisted, wide-leg, floor grazing with some serious flares. After years of wearing pants where the zipper starts well south of the navel, the “highwaisted” aspect of these new jeans might be kind of intimidating, but if worn the correct way, this is a look that can actually make someone look taller and thinner. Stephanie Solomon at Bloomingdale’s says the key is to try on several pairs of jeans and knowing how to style

Diana Ross will front a big band Monday at the Dock Street Theatre. Tickets are $2,000: $500 for a seat and $1,500 for a membership to Music With Friends. Visit www. musicwithfriends. com, call 704-2473266 or e-mail info@ musicwithfriends. com for information.

Diana Ross to headline concert club launch

A

new, upscale live music alternative will splash onto the Lowcountry entertainment scene Monday when Motown legend Diana Ross rolls into town, poised to kick off the Charleston version of a popular party club based in Charlotte, Music With Friends. MWF is a membership organization, says founder Larry Farber, that aims to provide up-close-and-personal, high quality music in small, classy venues for a

limited number of people. The Charlotte site is the McGlohon Theater. Farber and his folks have engaged the venerable 420-seat, newly renovated Dock Street Theatre as the site here. Ross, who also has acted and was former lead singer for The Supremes, is planning to perform tunes from her vast repertoire of hit songs, complete with a 13piece orchestra with horns, rhythm section and percussion. MWF puts on three shows a year. Membership in MWF, open year-round, entails two things.

First, you pay a one-time fee at $500 per seat. “You own the seat for the life of your membership,” said Becky Mitchener, development director, who is based in Charlotte but spends time in Charleston these days setting up the club here. Second, you pay a membership fee of $1,500 per person per year. The membership fee is based on the calendar year and is pro rated, depending on when you join. For instance, someone joining after the Ross show will pay $1,000 for the remaining two shows. Additional seats

can be purchased on a showby-show basis. As happened at a Jan. 25 pick-your-seat reception, MWF staff meet with and guide patrons through the theater to select their seats. MWF (www.musicwithfriends.com) memberships are available at (704) 2473266 or info@musicwithfriends.com. The club’s representative in Charleston is Chris Allen, (843) 697-8031 or allen.ct@gmail.com. “We poll our members for choosing artists,” Mitchener said. “We send out about 15 names, they vote on their top five, and that’s who we

pursue.” Past performers include Steely Dan, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Gladys Knight, Tony Bennett, George Benson/Al Jarreau, Sheryl Crowe and Smokey Robinson. Farber said an hour and a half before the concert, the club hosts an elaborate cocktail party with food and members get to mingle with VIPs. “It’s been a huge selling point,” he said. “This has become the networking event and social event in Charlotte.” Concerts last about 90 minutes. Complimentary parking passes for a lot nearby will be sent to

members. Local businessman Cantey Hare has been a MWF member since its inception in 2007. He led a group that began exploring Charleston in 2008. “It was a concept that was appealing after Larry had gotten in touch with a bunch of us about it,” he said then. “We were tired of concerts at huge venues with screaming kids, parking problems or somebody standing up and dancing in front of you.” Mitchener said last week that seats were still available for the Ross show.

G. Love’s new album is “Fixin to Die.”

G. Love and Special Sauce

Tonight at The Music Farm After 19 years and 12 albums, G. Love and Special Sauce is still one of the most popular bands on the alternative music circuit without the backing of a major label or tons of radio play. Front man Garrett Dutton has kept the same mentality to his music as he did when he first started as a Philadelphia street musician in high school: fun. “Sometimes, it can be a grind out here, but, hey, you’re livin’ a dream,” Dutton said when I talked with him a few years ago about what keeps him motivated. “This is what you dreamed about when you were in high school, and you’re one of the lucky people that is actually out there making a good living doing it and getting to make music that you love to make.” It’s that kind of humility and gratitude that has made Dutton and his band one of the most inspirational musician stories around while also being one of the most entertaining live performances you’re likely to see this year in Charleston. The band’s newest album, “Fixin’ to Die,” was released earlier this year to glowing reviews from critics and fans alike. The band recently performed the album’s title track on “Conan” to kick off the first leg of its spring tour. G. Love and Special Sauce will perform tonight at the Music Farm, 32 Ann St., with The Apache Relay. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 the day of the show and are available at the door or online at www.etix.com. Doors open at 7:30 p.m.

Community of local artists run Tivoli Studios

BY ELIZABETH BOWERS

Special to The Post and Courier

T

ivoli is a new kind of art gallery in Charleston. The art facility was started a year ago by Nic Roberts. It’s a warehouse with exposed wooden ceilings, tiles made of broken glass, mammoth sunflowers and 10 or so studio spaces for local artists. With recent open houses, Tivoli, located next to the Charleston Center for Photography on Upper King, has gained momentum and exposure. The ultimate goal of the space is to be a place where artists can both create and show their art. According to Roberts, the point of this is to cut out the middle man, make the process “from palette to payment” faster. Last Saturday, Tivoli held a yard sale. They were selling their art, of course, but also a Tony the Tiger cut-out, flashing caution lights, a popcorn popper and fullfledged streetlights for $45. Side note: Those streetlights are much larger up close than one would expect, and worth visiting the gallery just to see for yourself. “We’re very resourceful around here,” says Tivoli artist Mason Greenewald. And he is. His studio is filled with works on paper, canvases, and the most interesting is on what looks like an old headboard. It’s painted in bold colors and designs on both sides, and he wants to come up with a way to cut out circles and make them spin like a globe. Greenewald joined Tivoli last fall. In his art, Mona Lisa and a figure called “Bat Christ” seem to be recurring themes.

“Palmetto” by Andrew Smock.

PROVIDED PHOTOGRAPHS

Andrew Smock’s studio at Tivoli. During the yard sale, Greenewald was working on making a grid for “Don’t Walk” signs. “I’m going to make a sign that says ‘Dance’ out of these signs.” Like he said, “resourceful,” and pretty creative. Greenewald works as a graphic designer for Fuzzco. Andrew Smock, fellow Tivoli artist and graphic designer at Hook, likes sharing space with someone in his professional field. “I like that everyone here has a job,” he says, “I think it helps with creative thinking.” A lot of Smock’s work is done in pointillism, a process in which dots of varying colors are applied in a pattern to create an image. My favorite is half-pointillism, half-devil and asks,

“Why is the devil always looking down?” The answer, of course, being, “Because he is sad.” Smock has worked with crayons recently, creating images of tanks and Native Americans, and he’s been building his own canvases out of Tyvek. It’s the paper that FedEx packages are made of, and Smock likes it because it’s “functional and constant.” “I always like to have stuff ready to work on, and sometimes canvas can be too much.” With a high turnover rate, artists are in and out of their studios. Smock has been there from the beginning though. “I got the studio before I got a place to live in Charleston,” he says. “I can’t

work at home. I would criticize it too much. I feel sorry for people that don’t have studio space. You don’t get as much work done. It’s good to placate yourself.” Another fixture of Tivoli is Angela Caban, a New Yorker transplanted to Charleston because she said the bustle of the big city got to be too much. Caban started Studio Caban, her company that specializes in fine decorative painting and gilding and design. The award-winning design firm has offices in both New York city and Charleston. Most recently, she painted the murals on the wall of Upper King’s new tapas restaurant, Barsa. The traditional portraiture depicts

big plans for bettering the space and making it an ideal opportunity for local artists. Topping the list is climate control, followed by a room for screenprinting, focusing on and making the original garden beautiful and finding more artists to join the Tivoli community. “I didn’t realize how much work this was going to be,” Roberts said, “But now we’re really starting to do things.” They hope to have an “Think Tank” by Andrew art opening soon, and are Smock. hosting the after-party for dancers on a large scale, and the Big Mix, a streetwear is a good example of Caban’s clothing show and panel discussion at Eye Level Art, baroque and dark style.

First French Quarter Art Walk of the year blossoms

Kenton James’ “Papillion” will be at Scoop Studios, 57 Broad St. BY OLIVIA POOL

Special to The Post and Courier

H

allelujah! I just saw some bright green little buds on the tree in my backyard! It’s one of my favorite things: the beginning of spring. Charlestonians love to celebrate any chance we can get, so this weekend is going to be filled with beautiful things. Of course, there will be the massive gastronomic celebration with the BB&T Charleston Wine + Food Festival, but we don’t like to stop our “spring awakening” there. Make sure you satisfy all of your senses and give your eyes something to light up about as well. After all, the French Quarter Gallery Association put some thought into the decision to have the first art walk of the season on the first Friday of March. Unless otherwise noted, most of the art openings in the French Quarter will be 5-8 p.m. Friday and are free and open to the public. What better way to celebrate the beginning of spring than with great art, food and wine?

Madame Lambert Abstract artwork by William Crosby can be seen at the Martin Gallery, 18 Broad St.

Artist Hilarie Lambert visits Paris on a regular basis because her daughter and son-in-law live there. And, well, the fact that she’s an artist and Paris is

just a tad inspirational also might have something to do with it. Her latest trip to Paris was particularly special as she was able to be there for the birth of her granddaughter, Stella. “I rented a small apartment and set up my studio in it, and I would visit with the family in the morning, and then take long walks before going back to my apartment to paint,” she said. “Since I had limited access to Internet and the TV is in French, I painted quite a bit.” Lambert was inspired by the fresh little bundle in her life as well as the life of Paris in general. Her new show, “Ooh La La,” features everyday Parisian scenes, street vendors, jazz musicians and tourists, in both large- and small-format paintings. See them at a preview event 6-8 p.m. tonight at her upstairs studio-gallery, 55 Broad St. Visit www.hlambert.com.

‘Cinnamonworld’

There are many facets to Kenton James, and this is very clearly seen in his latest collection of layered paintings called “Cinnamonworld,” showing at Scoop studios, 57 Broad St., in March. This collection is done in black-andwhite oil paintings. These are reminiscent of vintage sepia-toned photos that were exposed,

Paula Rubino’s work is at Ann Long Fine Art, 54 Broad St. one on top of another, in an old darkroom, where the end product is a mixture of emotions and images that seem unrelated but really are relevant to one another. It’s an interesting world. Gallery owner Colleen Deihl says “the chaos and the surge of modern American life are captured in layered images. Using multiple exposure composition, each piece literally blends different narratives of people from mundane to alluring moments.” Call 577-3292 or visit www.scoopcontemporary.com.

The majority of the painters featured at Ann Long Fine Art, 54 Broad St., have studied at the Florence Academy of Art in Italy. American painter Paula Rubino was classically trained at this school, which teaches students the techniques of the

Madame Lambert’s “Local News” is at her gallery on 55 Broad St. Old Masters. She also has studied with famed Norwegian painter Odd Nerdrum, which has influenced her work in a very unique direction. Born in Trenton, N.J., in 1968 and raised in Florida, Rubino has since lived and worked in Mexico, Italy and Finland. Her most recent body of work includes paintings developed in Finland and Florida. She will have her third solo show at Ann Long Fine Art on Friday. It’s one worth checking out. Call 577-0447 or visit www.annlongfineart.com.

‘A Riff on Nests’

“A Riff on Nests” is Joe Walters’ first show in Charleston in many years. His newest collection of sculpture

and works on paper will be on display at the Corrigan Gallery in March. “Walters’ works come from his observation of the natural world. He manipulates ‘unorthodox materials’ to create his interpretation of objects and to ‘freeze them in an instant,’ said gallery owner Lese Corrigan. “Using polymer clay, steel, glue, sand, paint and wire, the crusty surfaces of Walters’ sculptures mimic metal corroded with age arrested at a point of interest,” Corrigan said. Many of his Artwork by Joe works are inWalters. spired by, and speak to, human beings’ interaction with nature. Even his works on paper mimic the rust colored look of his sculptures. Call 722-9868 or visit www.corrigangallery.com.

Crosby landscapes

In his new “Landscape Strokes and Gestures” exhibit showing at the Martin Gallery, William Crosby said he starts the canvas with a horizon line, and broad, quick strokes and gestures that are often applied on a very fluid canvas. “Slowly, and at other times rapidly, the composition is gone into, developed, changed or eliminated,” he said. “Many layers are created from washes and semi-transparent areas to layers of dense and opaque paint. I use both artist brushes and larger house painting brushes,” he said. Martin Gallery is at 18 Broad St. Call 723-7378 or visit www.martingallerycharleston.com.

Ceramic artist Betsey Carter loves the way things feel, Whether it’s clay in her hands or fabric she’s sewing, she a lways has been drawn to the tactile nature of things. Carter is a partner with C o n e Te n Carter Studios, now on Morrison Drive. Last June, Cone Ten had to move out of the Meeting Street location, where there was shared gallery and studio space for the past 10 years. Now, Cone Ten is bigger and brighter, allowing for more space in classes and in the front gallery. Carter recently featured her work at the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition and is preparing for the American Craft Council exhibition in Atlanta on March 11-13. “What’s that saying that 90 percent of life is showing up? I work every day. I read, draw, and make notes of what I need to do, but mostly I just start making work. Also, I keep a tiny notebook in my purse to write down ideas, words, pieces of literature — some of the best come from my yoga teachers,” she said. Carter recently has become interested in 18th- and 19thcentury English porcelain vessels that were acquired by wealthy Charleston residents. She said she is inspired by col-

Carolina’s Restaurant

Carrying on culture and cuisine, you betcha!

arolina’s Restaurant, a Southern Bistro, is accurately located on Exchange Street. In 2010 ownership was exchanged between Richard Stoney of Crew Carolina and Joseph Meloy. Previously, Meloy owned Restaurant Concepts Inc. in South Florida, which included Cagney’s Crabhouse in Deerfield Beach and Ferguson’s Gator Bar & Grill and Salute in Fort Lauderdale. Until 2008, Restaurant Concepts, Inc. owned and operated three restaurants and catering operations in the Embassy Suites Hotels in South Florida. These included Cagney’s Ocean Bistro, Salute Trattoria Italiana and Ferguson’s Gator Bar and Grill. Meloy was also the founder of Royal Oak Restaurants, Inc. It is clear that the hospitality industry runs in his blood and his experiences over the last 40 plus years is substantial. Family connections and a love for the area brought him to Charleston. He kept executive chef Jeremiah Bacon on board, but in the fall of 2010, Bacon got an “exchange” of his own kind: the opportunity for both culinary leadership and partnership with Steve Palmer and the Indigo Road Restaurant Group at Oak Steakhouse. With the departure of Bacon, the position of executive chef was offered to Carolina’s sous chef Jill Mathias. She accepted. This Fargo-Moorhead, North Dakota native schooled in art history found her passion for the canvas of cookery and channeled her

Soubise is traditionally served as a stuffing ingredient but when thinned with cream or creme fraiche it becomes a sauce. Lately, this combination of rice and onions appears on the plate as a vegetable side. The roasted chicken lands airplane style on the plate and an olive oil pomme puree was graciously substituted for polenta.

server delivered enthusiasm and efficiency and on a busy weekend evening, the kitchen managed to keep pace with the appetites of tourists and residents. The young support staff could benefit from a bit of hospitality coaching. The Carolina Gold rice pudding ($8) remains on the dessert menu along with the pecan brittle basket ($9). Miso has been added to the creme brulee, a shot of umami, to this now ubiquitous custard. We tried a mousse ($9) of peanut butter and chocolate vanilla enrobed in chocolate on a puddle of vanilla sauce sprinkled with chocolate powder. Think upscale Reese’s Peanut Buttercup. Given all the change-ups at Carolina’s, the dessert menu could better align with the menu. Maybe Mathias will import those Door County cherries for a tart taste of summer. And in a Midwest frame of mind and with all due respect to the Coen brothers, executive chef Jill Mathias sure can cook, “yah, you betcha”!

he “Cosmopolitan” section of chef Michelle Weaver’s menu at Charleston Grill is described as “exotic and imaginative dishes inspired by flavors found traveling the globe.” Her Tuna Sashimi With a Greek Salad fits that description perfectly. Sashimi grade tuna, the best you can buy, is flown in from Hawaii twice a week. Weaver estimates that she serves 40-50 pounds of tuna each week at The Grill, three to four ounces at a time. The dish has 17 ingredients that blend together perfectly. It is a beautiful

combination of beets, olives, basil, shallots, tomatoes, herbs and sheep’s milk feta that works perfectly with the delicate fish underneath. The vegetables are fresh and bright, the surface salt is perfect, and the tuna is amazing. Though Weaver says “it’s a bit tough on the kitchen because there’s a tremendous amount of knife work that goes into this dish,” it is wildly popular with the customers and one of the

dishes that she could not take off of the menu. She estimates that she will sell 40 of these small plates on an average weekend night, at $16 per plate. Though $16 might seem a bit expensive for an appetizer, the dish is quite substantial because it does not skimp on the tuna. It’s the perfect portion size and reaffirms Charleston Grill as one of my favorite places in Charleston for an appetizer and a cocktail.

Sides consist of items such as macaroni salad, pineapple teriyaki steamed rice and Hawaiian baked beans, all dotted with pineapple tidbits. Hula Dogs also provides Hawaiian shaved ice ($2.50$5) in such flavors as coconut, pineapple, mango and cotton candy. And in case you were wondering, snow cones are made from crushed ice, instead of the shaved ice preferred by our tropi-

cal pals. Which makes for a more syrupy concoction. Hula Dogs is a smart, original concept for our marketplace, and one that could fly. Trouble is: service is spotty, slow and inconsistent, while the decor is scattershot and disorderly. A hot dog is a comfort food, and deserves to be eaten in comfort.

Damon and Blunt have spectacular chemistry, and their flirtations have such snap that you’d swear Damon is blushing as Blunt bats her eyes at him. This “Inception” meets “Made in Heaven” by way of “They Live” is also the screwiest movie Matt Damon has been in since, what, “Dogma?” David carries around this top-secret knowledge and schemes for that moment when he can go “off plan.” Slattery dons his hat and sets off in pursuit as David tries this trick and that to escape the manipulating overseers and find his way to the slender, sexy dancer he only knows by her first name.

DIRECTOR: George Nolfi. STARRING: Matt Damon, Emily Blunt, Anthony Mackie, John Slattery. RATED: PG-13 for brief strong language, some sexuality and a violent image. RUN TIME: 1 hour, 44 minutes. WHAT DID YOU THINK?: Find this review at www.charlestonscene.com and offer your opinion of the film.

drags us along with them, rooting for them to connect — it’s just not strong enough to sustain what it essentially a cute thriller treatment of the war between free will and determinism, the notion that we do or do not control our own destiny. It’s romantic and intellectually stimulating and like “Inception,” it may have you arguing with your date on the ride home. But it plays like a movie by a thriller writer who is better at chases than at romance. Which it is.

Matt Damon and Emily Blunt in “The Adjustment Bureau.”

R40-484004

here are these guys, see? And they’re dressed in slightly outof-date suits, gray mostly. And they wear hats, each and every one of them, all the time. They dress like “Mad Men” and they’re led by a “Mad Men” star (John Slattery). But they’re not in advertising, circa 1962. No, these guys run a vast bureaucracy that clocks in every morning and decides our fate. Make a move that doesn’t follow the predetermined path your life was supposed to follow, they set you straight. That’s what “The Adjustment Bureau” does, manipulate events so that your life, from start to finish, follows their plan. And nobody sees them, nobody knows they’re doing this. Until David Norris. His run for Congress just got derailed and he’s just met a woman who changed his whole world view. An impulsive guy, acting on impulse, David (Matt Damon) stumbles into the knowledge of this “Bureau.” And as years pass and effort is expended by that apparatus — Are they angels, micro-managing aliens? — David battles them for the chance to reconnect with Elise (Emily Blunt), who set off sparks with him on the worst day of his life. “The Adjustment Bureau,” written and directed by George Nolfi, the writer of Damon’s last “Bourne” and “Oceans Twelve,” has hints of several supernatural romances, especially “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.”

’80s nostalgia doesn’t work in ‘Take Me Home Tonight’

BY ROGER MOORE

The Orlando Sentinel

‘T

ake Me Home Tonight” is a 10-yearstoo-late comedy. It’s ’80s nostalgia vamped up by people who were too young to have lived through the actual ’80s. Topher Grace, now a wellpreserved 32, is Matt, the recent M.I.T. grad working for Suncoast Video while he tries to decide what to do with his life. Anna Faris, now 34, is Wendy, Matt’s twin sister, equally directionless, also working at Suncoast. And Dan Fogler, now 34, is Barry, Matt’s burly, boozy loose cannon pal. He skipped college and is regretting it. Their story? Straight out of the ’90s — the “Can’t Hardly

Among otherthingstheywerepartofthe team that won the world junior championships 20 years ago. Here is Gerald at work in five diamonds. Knowing that they had at most one spade trick to take on defense, West started off by leading the spade queen to try to retain the lead. Then, worried that declarer might be able to set upsomehearts,Westswitchedto the club jack, which ran around to declarer’s king. Declarer now played the heart ace and king, cashed the diamondace,andplayedadiamond todummy’sking.Hethenruffed a heart, ruffed a spade, ruffed a heart, and played a low club. When West played the 10, Geraldducked.Withnothingleftbut spades, West had to givedeclarer a ruff and discard. South ruffed in dummy, discarding one club fromhishand,andthendiscarded his last club loser on dummy’s fifth heart. Declarer would have needed to see through the backs of the cardsifWesthadcontinuedwith a second spade at trick two. At trick three, declarer must play a club from dummy himself. Now come the heart ace and king, followedbyafinesseagainstthediamond jack! This enables him to ruffaheart,crosstothediamond king, and ruff another heart before playing a low club to reach the same position as before.

TODAY’S HOROSCOPE LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don’t brag about what you have. By allowing others dignity, you will gain respect and attract a romantic suggestion that you cannot refuse.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22DEC. 21): You may think you have everything under control but, when you least expect it, someone will surprise you with a complicated and stressful situation.

VIRGO (Aug. 23Sept. 22): Keep things tight between you and a partner. Letting too many people in on your plans or secrets will lead to obstacles.

CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19): Too much pressure will lead to trouble. Make sure you have a clear picture of what’s going on before you take sides.

GEMINI (May 21June 20): You’ll be walking a fine line with regard to work, overspending and dealing with people you owe or who owe you.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23OCT. 22): Fix up your residence or size up or down in order to achieve greater comfort or to accommodate a changing lifestyle.

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18): Emotional deception is apparent. Private affairs must be kept that way or you will be caught in the middle of a melodrama.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You can be the star by taking action. Everything you touch will turn out well. Do something to improve your appearance or your love life.

SCORPIO (OCT. 23NOV. 21): Take better care of your health and emotional well-being. Focus on home, family and getting things in order so you can get on with your life.

PISCES (FEB. 19MARCH 20): Take on as much as you can and show everyone what you can do. Be relentless when it comes to dealing with slackers.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Hesitation will not help you choose correctly. Feel it in your heart and base what you need to do on intuition, and the right door will open. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): People who have information you want may need a gentle push but, once you get the ball rolling, it will be easy to gain momentum.

Upset wife ruins all gatherings

The science of random questions

D

BY REBEKAH BRADFORD

Special to The Post and Courier

Warning. This week’s edition of Head2Head trivia has no theme. It’s ten somewhat random questions that really have not much in common. Well, OK, half are science questions, but apart from that, there’s no common denominator. Long-time trivia champ Eric Pastorelli is being challenged by student Brendan Smith. President Eisenhower presents his first State of the Union Address before a joint session of Congress on Capitol Hill in Washington in this Feb. 2, 1953 file photo. Behind him are Vice President Richard Nixon (left) and House Speaker Joseph M. Martin.

AP FILE PHOTO

EAR ABBY: Every year I host a family gathering. Each year, my cousin’s wife, “Jodie,” does everything possible to ensure that we all know she’s upset about something. She’ll sit on my couch far removed from the family, grumbling under her breath to her husband. Jodie never says more than four words to me the entire time, none of which are “thank you,” then she feigns food poisoning! (No one else gets sick.) This has been going on longer than the six years I have hosted this event. Would it be tactless to ask my cousin to leave his wife home next year? I am not the only family member who is disgusted with Jodie’s behavior. I think we’d all have a better time if she wasn’t there. Would that be

DEAR ABBY wrong of me? — SICK OF CODDLING HER DEAR SICK: For a person to repeatedly act the way you described is not normal. Your cousin’s wife may suffer from emotional problems. Is no one in your family close enough to your cousin to express concern? While it would be tactless to tell him to leave his wife home, it might be less so to mention gently that you have noticed she doesn’t enjoy herself when she visits and that her attendance isn’t compulsory. Then listen to what he has to say.

QUESTIONS 1. What is the only metal that’s not a solid at room temperature? 2. What type of trees yield the resin to produce turpentine? 3. What is the U.S. equivalent of 0.45 kilograms? 4. Name the speaker of the following quotation. “Veni, Vidi, Vici.” 5. Which American city was named on a coin toss in 1844? 6. What is the only rock that floats in water? 7. Who commanded the Allied troops during the invasion of Normandy? 8. What’s the Hungarian word for pepper? 9. Where are the Luxembourg Gardens? 10. What is the capital of Australia?

ERIC’S ANSWERS 1. It’s mercury. 2. Pine trees have sap. I just don’t know if that makes turpentine. 3. Ten pounds. 4. Caesar came, saw and conquered. 5. Laramie. 6. A very light one. 7. General Eisenhower. 8. I think it might be paprika? 9. Paris. 10. Melbourne.

CONCLUSION Pastorelli had no trouble defeating his opponent, who may or may not have taken this quiz seriously. Regardless, Pastorelli returns next week to defend his long-standing title.

BRENDAN’S ANSWERS 1. Liquid silver. 2. Fir. 3. I’m not good with measurements. 4. Plato. 5. St. Louis. 6. They all sink. It’s a trick question. 7. Winston Churchill. 8. Goulash. 9. Luxembourg? 10. Sydney.

CORRECT ANSWERS 1. Mercury. 2. Pine trees. 3. One pound. 4. Julius Caesar. 5. Portland, Ore.

6. Pumice. 7. Gen. Dwight Eisenhower. 8. Paprika. 9. Paris. 10. Canberra.
