And now, a simple quote that explains where I hope Valentine’s Day evolves into. Sure, a lot of the “holiday” is not based in truth, but I think its heart is in the right place. Pun intended. “I’m not interested in being a ‘lover.’ I’m interested in only being love.” — Ram Dass, author of “Be Here Now” and “Be Love Now”

Mardi Gras comes to Charleston BY LISA RYAN

Special to The Post and Courier


he Lowcountry gets a taste of Bourbon Street this Saturday as the Krewe of Charleston hosts its second annual Mardi Gras celebration, which features a yacht parade that afternoon, followed by a masquerade Grand Ball that evening. In lieu of the infamous debauchery synonymous with its New Orleans counterpart, however, Charleston’s celebration will be a family-friendly affair benefiting the MUSC Children’s Hospital. In step with the New Orleans tradition of presenting its Mardi Gras court during a parade, the party kicks off with a procession of decorated yachts carrying revelers as well as this year’s Lowcountry Mardi Gras royalty. The fleet is set to depart from the Charleston City Marina at 10 a.m. and will travel along the Battery. Former South Carolina first lady Jenny Sanford will be aboard as queen, while New York businessman and Charleston resident John

Having lived in the Lowcountry for nearly 23 years, I’ve been to my fair share of oyster roasts, and my favorite is the Sullivan’s Island Fire & Rescue Squad Oyster Roast. The event is big, but not as congested as the Lowcountry Oyster Festival at Boone Hall Plantation, and includes music, dancing and, usually, some crisp, cold weather. This year’s oyster roast will be 5-8 p.m. Saturday at the Fish Fry Shack near Fort Moultrie. Tickets are $25 in advance at the fire station, Sullivan’s Island Town Hall, Piggly Wiggly at Sea Island Shopping Center, Simmons Seafood and Exit Realty, or $30 the day of the event. MOMMY & ME

Valentine’s Day Hackler playing at High Cotton To splurge or not to splurge



y first experience having a boyfriend on Valentine’s Day was a total bust. It was in sixth grade, and Billy, my boyfriend of exactly one week, was supposedly going to give me a necklace at the Valentine’s Day dance after school. The day before the dance, though, some of my friends convinced me to break up with him so we could all go together. As punishment for giving in to peer pressure, I got to watch Billy ask another friend of mine to the dance where he ended up giving her my necklace. It might seem weird, but I still think of that necklace to this day. Since then, I’ve had boyfriends on Valentine’s Day, but so far not one of them has given me jewelry. It occurred to me that if I was going to wait around for a guy to give me jewelry, I might be waiting a long time. So in my mid-20s, I started celebrating Valentine’s Day with a solo trip to Tiffany & Co. My first piece was a sterling silver ring with three interlocking bands that I wore home from the store and didn’t take off for months. The iconic blue jewelry box that came with the ring was the first of many. To celebrate other Valentine’s Days, I bought a wide sterling band with Roman numerals, a silver bead bracelet and delicate chandelier earrings. I also collected a bunch of Elsa Peretti sterling silver, including the starfish necklace, the “bean” bracelet, the open heart earrings and one of the narrow stackable rings with each sporting a different stone. My biggest splurge was a couple of years before I moved to Charleston when I bought myself a pair of diamond earrings. I was hyperventilating the entire time the sales associate ran my card through, but I rationalized that it was an investment piece that one day I’d be able to give to my daughter. Most of my Tiffany collection is gone now. It was sold on eBay a couple of years ago when I was feeling the pinch from the economy. As a result, these days I’m much more pared down when it comes to jewelry. My everyday watch is a Timex Ironman, and, since summer, I’ve worn a couple friendship bracelets that’ll probably stay on until they disintegrate. I go weeks without wearing earrings, and my favorite ring is a plastic flower that cost $12. My love of Elsa Peretti jewelry hasn’t disappeared (I totally covet her silver bone cuff), it’s just been dormant. At least it was until last week when the catalog appeared in my mail box just in time for Valentine’s Day. Darn you, Tiffany & Co.


eet Kevin Hackler. Better yet, go see him at High Cotton restaurant. He’s there a few times a week. You’ll get an earful of finely executed jazz music in some of the best digs in town these days. Hackler is an excellent trumpet player; and on Tuesdays and Fridays, he’s a part of the James Slater Trio in the restaurant’s lounge. Slater is a seasoned guitarist and he and Hackler are driven by Jeremy Wolf on double bass. Hackler and Slater work the popular Sunday brunch, too. Hackler is one of the more interesting players in the area. His sound is deliberate and forthright. Like all good artists, he continuously works on his craft, always prepared, ready for whatever comes along. As the old Lowcountry saying goes, he’s “steady in the boat.” He’s been sailing the high seas of jazz at High Cotton for at least five years now, most of them in bands under his own name. In the fall of 2009, he left the jazz scene for a couple of months after enrolling in law school. He handed the gig over to Slater. Gentleman that he is, it remained Slater’s gig upon his return. He’s still a force, though. His clear, concise tone leads the band’s way melodically, at least the times I’ve seen them recently. Slater and Wolf are lyrical players but Slater alternates between playing lead and rhythm while Wolf

mostly lays the foundation. The ensemble’s feel is perfect for the newly renovated lounge, too. Manager John St. John has overseen a smart makeover of the bar area. It’s still cozy but it looks bigger by at least a third. There’s a small, slightly elevated stage on the back wall, opposite where musicians used to stand at floor level, which was sometimes awkward given that spot’s proximity to the entrance to the restaurant. New, unobtrusive lighting mounted in the ceiling contributes greatly to the jazzy ambience and increases the potential for the space to become one of the nicer listening rooms on our scene. Subtle, passive blues and reds match the trio’s penchant for cool jazz that’s laid back but swingin’. Hackler has always played like that. He plays all the forms but he’s always in command of his instrument. He’s a charter member and soloist in the 20-piece Charleston Jazz Orchestra. He’s led trios and quartets at a number of venues. He’s even worked the horn section of Quiana Parler’s R&B and party bands. I probably heard Hackler before but I first noticed him

Kevin Hackler is a versatile trumpeter and composer.

in 2002 at Clara’s, a King Street coffee bar and jazz nursery. It could have been his first gig as a leader. He was under the tutelage of Quentin Baxter, a merciless but fair teacher and bandstand role model. I had walked up on the gig at the very end. Hackler was shaking in his boots, looking very glad the end was near. He had made it through, but Q and the late, great bassist Lee Burrows had him on pins and needles. He played nicely, though. I caught them in a fine version of Thelonious Monk’s “Rhythm-A-Ning” and he held his own. In fact, by the time I got there, the concert was over. The attendees had left. Nevertheless, Quentin struck up the band to accommodate me, an audience of one. The lesson for Hackler was that you played for your audience, no matter how many people are there. It was a professional respect issue. While you don’t hear his name like you hear Quentin’s and some of the other higher profile players, Hackler is well on his way to mastering the art of jazz. He’s among the best under-30 musicians around, in my opinion. A Virginia native who finished high school in North

Myrtle Beach, he graduated from the College of Charleston the year after the aforementioned Clara’s gig with a bachelor’s degree in music performance. While there, he studied under Quentin, theory instructor Robert Lewis, trumpeters Lyle van Wie and Charlton Singleton, composers David Maves and Trevor Weston and pianist Tommy Gill. He has traveled the United States and Europe as a performer and bandleader. In 2007, he recorded “Absalon,” a CD he co-produced with Tim Holbrook on Sullivan’s Island. At that time, Hackler, who also mixed the record and wrote some of the songs, described his music as modern jazz/rock. I wrote about it for the Post and Courier and Holbrook told me, “He’s got a keen sense of performance and also a great ability to put players together and write great songs. I haven’t seen that in this modern era of music. Very often Hackler is interested in the music, when others are more interested in making money, and it’s very apparent in his material.” Believe me, it would be time well spent if you went to check him out at High Cotton. The lounge food is good, too. By the way, High Cotton is the only jazz venue I know of that has more than one female singer in its weekly cycle: Ann Caldwell, who I believe was the first jazz act there years ago; Leah Suarez; Margaret Coleman, another High Cotton longtimer who also plays keyboard; and Allyson Taylor, all very fine, I might add.

Jennifer Lopez, center, imitates the audience’s reaction to her film “The Back-Up Plan.”

Romantic films we’re just not that into W


hile all movie genres have duds, romantic comedy duds stand out probably because they end up being formulaic. Take a couple of star actors, add a way-toopredictable script and toss in some really sappy moments. Some of them are just bad. Think “Gigli” and “The Ugly Truth.” But others are far too overhyped or overrated. Any redeeming qualities the movie in question might have get canceled out after hearing how great the flick is. Here are some I wouldn’t recommend checking out: “He’s Just Not That Into You”: First of all, movies like this that try to incorporate a billion different stories into one general theme seem to have a 50/50 chance of survival. This one didn’t. Why has this movie and the book behind it have been quoted relentlessly? The title explains the plot, while the two-hour, 10-minute movie forces you to watch a bunch of barely believable characters. “The Back-up Plan”: Was last year’s “The Backup Plan” Jennifer Lopez’s huge comeback? Nope.

Remembering Kid Rock’s hip-hop roots

Special to The Post and Courier


t the risk of coming off like a hip-hop fogey, I remember when Kid Rock had a hightop fade. There was a time when that hairdo epitomized the genre. Way before he was the long-haired redneck of “All Summer Long,” in constant rotation on CMT, he was a rapper with a high-top of his very own, touring in support of his album, “Grits Sandwiches for Breakfast.” Filled with tracks produced by such hip-hop luminaries as Too $hort and D-Nice (of Boogie Down Productions), “Grits Sandwiches For Breakfast” was one of many rap albums released on Jive Records.

if you go WHAT: Kid Rock. WHEN: 7 p.m. Wednesday. WHERE: North Charleston Performing Arts Center, 5001 Coliseum Drive, North Charleston. HOW MUCH: $49.50, $25. WHERE TO GET TICKETS:, the Coliseum Ticket Office, Ticketmaster outlets, by phone at 745-3000 or

Unfortunately, Jive didn’t give too much support to Rock since the other white guy with a high-top fade, Vanilla Ice, had taken the crown with the unremarkable “Ice Ice Baby.” Though “Grits” was filled with braggadocio and lyrics worthy of parental advisory, it also gave the listener glimpses of Kid Rock’s love for classic rockers such as ZZ Top and Detroit’s own

Bob Seger. Over time, the high-top faded and a more organic rock sound pervaded his subsequent independent albums. Back in the mid ’90s, when I picked up Kid Rock’s cassette EP “Fire It Up,” my friends and I would play and rewind the tape to hear songs like “I Am The Bullgod,” a track that would later reappear


Kid Rock’s first album, “Grits Sandwiches for Breakfast,” was released in 1990. on his smash album “Devil Without a Cause.” Though this EP received

little national acclaim, in my opinion, it was Kid Rock’s mini-masterpiece.

While “Fire It Up” still held onto Kid Rock’s hip-hop roots and hard rock edge, it also found him dabbling in a another genre of rebel music: country. His cover of Hank Williams Jr.’s “A Country Boy Can Survive” pushed that song’s defiant spirit into new realms. With shrieking guitars and vitriolic vocals that threatened to eat the speakers, Kid Rock revealed another dimension to himself that surprised old fans and, in time, would bring along a new untapped audience. While Wednesday’s show promises to bring a healthy dose of rock and country to the stage, there will be a few hip-hop fans enjoying the show while thinking, “I remember when ...”

They pride themselves on their off-thewall style, and fans feel the same way. “After playing for the last two years, we realized that we were right in the beginning,” bassist Neil Turner said. “We always get a good response, and we always make people dance. We want to be looked at as a band that really can’t be tied to one genre.”

Roscoe Dash Sunday at The Music Farm


Roscoe Dash

Galactic Friday at The Music Farm When the legendary New Orleans funk and jazz/rock band Galactic formed nearly 16 years ago, the initial vision was to be an octet under the name Galactic Prophylactic. The band got it’s start performing experimental funk and jazz in New Orleans’ celebrated bar scene while cofounders guitarist Jeff Raines and bassist Robert Mercurio were attending Tulane University. Today, the band is recognized as one of the most influential on the jam band scene with its modern take on traditional New Orleans jazz and funk. Last year, Galactic released “Ya-Ka-May,” which broke the Top 200 on U.S. charts, making it the first of the band’s seven previous albums to do so. Galactic will perform Friday at the Music Farm, 32 Ann St., Friday with Corey Glover (Living Colour), Corey Henry (Rebirth Brass Band) and Orgone. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 the day of the show and are available at the door or online at Call 722-8904 or visit www. for more information.

Daikaiju Tonight at The Tin Roof


For more than six years, the Huntsville, Ala.-based quartet Daikaiju has been quietly crusading its brand of surfrock and masked imagery. The band wears kabuki masks while performing

and plays an eclectic blend of psychedelic surf-rock that makes Daikaiju one of the most unique and memorable bands you’re likely to see on the small-club circuit. The band has released


three albums and plays more than 100 shows every year proving its dedication to the grassroots and independent approach to the music industry. Daikaiju will perform to-

night at the Tin Roof, 1117 Magnolia Road., with Jason and The Juggernauts. Doors open at 10 p.m. Visit or call 571-0775 for more information.


Born Jeffrey Johnson Jr. in Atlanta, rapper Roscoe Dash began writing lyrics to rap over his older brother’s beats at age 12. By the time he entered high school, the young rapper had taken the name “ATL” and was performing with The Blackout Boys, a rap quartet that had become popular at Mill Creek High School where Johnson attended. By the time he was 16, Johnson and now wife Njari Gayles had a daughter, a surprise that motivated Johnson to pursue rapping more seriously as a way to provide for his new family. Two years later, Johnson had released his first mix tape “So Turnt Up (You Can’t Hear The Truth)” under the name Roscoe Dash. Johnson then signed to Interscope Records to make his upcoming debut “Ready Set Go!” Critics were comparing his melodic, crunkinspired rap style to the likes of Nelly and Soulja Boy for Dash’s ability to appeal to a wide audience. With collaborations from Soulja Boy, the album has already produced two singles (Show Out,” “All The Way Turnt Up”) that have cracked the Top 25 on U.S. rap charts. Roscoe Dash will perform Sunday at the Music Farm, 32 Ann St., with Slim Thug. Tickets are $35 in advance and $45 the day of the show and are available at the door or online at www.etix. com. Doors open at 8 p.m., call 722-8904 or visit www. for more information.

Few music artists are more recognized on a worldwide level than Bob Marley. Although Marley recorded and toured for less than 20 years, his influence is still felt and his music continues to sell well even more than 20 years after his death. When Marley and his band The Wailers performed in Pittsburgh on Sept. 23, 1980, it was then just another stop on the tour in support of Marley’s latest album, “Uprising.” Less than eight months later though, Marley would be dead of cancer. A malignant melanoma discovered in 1977 was initially ignored by the singer until it was too late. “Live Forever” captures that Pittsburgh performance, Marley’s final live concert, in its entirety. While not a pristine recording, the material here will still send a shiver up your spine as you listen to Marley perform hits that include “No Woman No Cry,” “Jamming” and “Could You Be Loved.” Even though by then Marley was likely already suffering from the effects of cancer, he still sounds strong and in command on stage. His greeting to the crowd at the beginning of the show (“Greetings in the name of his imperial majesty Haile Selassie!”) shows a happy and animated Marley, and the recording shows a typical Marley live experience, with his music seeming to transcend the normal idea of a concert, heading toward being a religious experience. From a technical standpoint there are better live Marley performances out there, but for Marley fans, I dare you not to get goose bumps knowing that as Marley kicks into “Get Up Stand Up,” that it is the last song he would ever perform live. KEY TRACKS: “War/No More Trouble,” “No Woman No Cry,” “Get Up Stand Up.”


Iron & Wine KISS EACH OTHER CLEAN (Warner Bros.)

It has been interesting to watch singersongwriter Samuel Beam spread his wings as a recording artist and performer over the last few years. Beam, a South Carolina native who now lives in Austin, Texas, has proven to be a very prolific artist since recording his first album, “The Creek Drank the Cradle,” in 2002. Since then, Beam, better known as the talent behind Iron & Wine, has released three more full-length albums, several live recordings and more than a half-dozen EPs. Iron & Wine’s last release, 2007’s “The Shepherd’s Dog,” differed from its predecessors in that Beam had moved from a sparse, folk music style to a more layered, textured style of recording. The change was unnecessary, in that Beam’s previous formula was still working fine. But in the end, that change worked wonderfully. “Kiss Each Other Clean,” Iron & Wine’s latest effort, continues the rich recording process that was exhibited on “The Shepherd’s Dog.” If that previous album found Beam dipping his toe into the pop music waters, then “Kiss Each Other Clean” finds him doing a cannonball into the same pool. That isn’t to say that Iron & Wine has decided to become the next Lady Gaga. Instead, Beam has crafted a pop album for folks who normally shun pop music. Listen to the unexpected funkiness of “Big Burned Hand” or the Fleetwood Mac-meets-Harry Nilsson California 1970s rock goodness of “Half Moon,” and you’ll see that Beam was just playing with us on earlier releases. Heading into the second month of 2011, “Kiss Each Other Clean” might be my favorite album of 2011 so far. KEY TRACKS: “Walking Far From Home,” “Half Moon,” “Big Burned Hand.”


Amos Lee MISSION BELL (Blue Note)

I imagine it must be pretty humbling when, just six years into your professional recording career, your music is being compared to monumental artists such as John Prine and James Taylor. That is exactly what is happening with Amos Lee. Even if you have never heard one of Lee’s albums or caught one of his songs on a local radio station, it is very likely you have been exposed to Lee’s music. His song “Colors,” from his self-titled debut album, has been featured in numerous television shows, as well as the Reece Witherspoon film “Just Like Heaven.” Lee, who graduated from the University of South Carolina, has a way of mixing folk, jazz, and R&B into his own unique musical stew in such a way that the hybrid can’t help but sound good. On “Mission Bell,” Lee’s most ambitious release yet, the artist has crafted a collection of songs that are richly beautiful. The lush musical landscapes that Lee paints with his guitar on songs such as “Violin” and “Hello Again” will renew faith in those who didn’t think emotion mattered in music any more. An impressive array of artists shows up on the album, including Lucinda Williams (“Clear Blue Eyes”) and Willie Nelson (“El Camino Reprise”). The band Calexico, itself well-known among alt-country music fans, serves as Lee’s backup band on the album. Folks who enjoy brilliantly constructed songs that evoke thoughts of quality songwriters such as Lyle Lovett and Norah Jones would do well to give “Mission Bell” a listen. KEY TRACKS: “Violin,” “Hello Again,” “Clear Blue Eyes.”


Wanda Jackson THE PARTY AIN’T OVER (Third Man)

Even if you aren’t a fan of the recently defunct The White Stripes, you have to hand it to Jack White. The White Stripes’ front man loves to use his influence in the music industry to shine a light on artists that he respects, but might not be getting the amount of attention from today’s younger listeners that they should. Case in point was “Van Lear Rose,” the excellent 2004 album by Loretta Lynn that White produced. A whole new generation of fans likely discovered Lynn’s music because of White. Now White has set his sights on another musical treasure; rockabilly queen Wanda Jackson. Although she is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Jackson has never really received full recognition for her contributions to the genre. White does his best to correct that on “The Party Ain’t Over,” recruiting members of My Morning Jacket, The Raconteurs and Dead Weather to play with the legend. Jackson is now 73 years old, but you would never know it while listening to tracks such as “Rip It Up,” “Nervous Breakdown” and a superb cover of Bob Dylan’s “Thunder on the Mountain.” If the retro sounds on these tunes don’t get you up and dancing around the house, then I would advise you to check yourself for a pulse. While there are any number of retro-minded musical acts that try to duplicate the rockabilly sound of the 1950s, it is rare these days to get someone who actually recorded in that era to show the kids how it’s done. Kudos to Jack White for allowing Wanda Jackson to show the world that she still has it. KEY TRACKS: “Rip It Up,” “Thunder on the Mountain,” “Blue Yodel #6.”

Randall and Jennifer Goldman have worked together since they first met. Randall says, “I don’t think we would be together if we weren’t in the same industry. There’s a level of respect that comes with knowing what she goes through.” After they both graduated from Johnson & Wales University, the couple ended up in Dallas. Randall always meant to make it back to Charleston, though. “Jennifer had worked her way up and was the head pastry chef at the Four Seasons, doing really well with a really good company. And I asked if she wanted to quit all that and move back to Charleston to work at the American Theater,” he said. They both laughed. But it’s what happened. Then, Patrick Properties was just the American Theater, and now the couple manage five hospitality-related properties. Fish came second. Randall ran the front of the restaurant, and Jennifer was the pastry chef. Their titles have evolved with the company and its added properties, such as Lowndes Grove and the William Aiken House. Randall is now a managing partner, and Jennifer, director of events. Randall says, “I owe my everything to my wife.” Please see LOVE, Page 24E

LOVE From Page 22E

Travis Holland and Emily Rivers

Wendy Deiterlan and Becky Wollenberg

For two or three years, Holland only handed fliers to Rivers whenever he would see her out. The fliers were for the parties he put together for his event planning company, Night Vizzion. Doing that gave him the perfect in, but he never quite capitalized on his chance to talk to her. Finally, one night after a basketball game at the North Charleston Coliseum, he walked Rivers to her car and got her phone number. Now they’re engaged, getting married in May and expecting their first child in July. Their relationship works because of Rivers’ understanding of Holland’s image and presence in Charleston’s nightlife. “People will ask my who my fiance is, and all I have to say is, ‘His name is Travis, and he has long dreads,’ and then they know who I’m talking about,” she said. She continues, “He’s a free spirit. He puts his heart into everything he does. You’ll go to one of his parties, and there are graffiti artists on stage. People getting haircuts. Break dancers. Everyone leaves amazed.” Sometimes Rivers will work the door at a Night Vizzion party, but for the most part, she stays away. “She can’t keep up with me,” Holland says. And that’s really what Holland thinks a power couple is: people who are “busy, but keep a relationship going even with all the distractions.”

The Langes

Owners of arguably the best-looking art gallery in the city, The Langes met while living in Providence, R.I. “Of course art brought us together,” Megan Lange says, “I asked my friend, ‘Who’s that guy in your art class?’ I knew his paintings and had seen him around, but we had never met. She introduced us in the hallway after Life Drawing, and later that night I told her, ‘I’m going to marry an artist just like that someday.’ Well, it worked out that he was exactly like that.” Megan and Robert Lange then moved to Charleston, sold everything they owned, maxed out three credit cards, co-signed a loan, and found a building owner willing to take a chance on them and their dream of owning an art gallery. “Last November, at the Women Painting Women show, the client that bought the very first painting in our gallery in 2004 came in and with tears in her eyes said, ‘I had a feeling you kids would make it.’ Robert and I sandwich hugged her and just said thank you,” Megan said. Their success in Charleston’s art world comes from their couple-dom. “We spend pretty much every second of every day together and have for the last 10 years. I can’t imagine a life where we don’t work together. We do a lot of the ‘no one wants to do this’ things together. For example, no one wants to do laundry. So we do it together, and that dynamic travels into the gallery,” Megan said. A positive attitude and balancing act of each other’s strengths and weaknesses make them a power couple.

But really, according to Megan, “A power couple is two people that respond to one name. We are Megbert.”

Wendy Deiterlan and Becky Wollenberg

Wendy Deiterlan and Becky Wollenberg have been together for nine years and do feel like they are viewed as a power couple in Charleston’s lesbian community. Wollenberg says, “It’s because of the time we’ve spent together, and the level of responsibility that comes with owning businesses.” They started The Chart, a bar in Park Circle, with business partners because they felt like there wasn’t a live music scene in the lesbian community. Then to really fulfill their love for sports and fitness, bought Snap Fitness in Mount Pleasant. Their real passion comes with their most recent business venture: cPrime is the company that makes bracelets that more and more athletes are popping up wearing. Wollenberg explains, “It’s like an antennae for the body. Like your car. If it didn’t have an antennae, all the signals would be fuzzy. That’s what the bracelet does for the body, it organizes the signals.” They are top distributors with the company, and setting up distribution nationwide. Deiterlan and Wollenberg have undertaken all three ventures together, but definitely know their strengths and weaknesses, how they complement one another. Wollenberg is at the gym all day, while Deiterlan works at home.

The Langes

Travis Holland and Emily Rivers

Wollenberg says, “If I had to sit at a computer all day, I would go crazy, so I really respect all the work she gets done throughout the day. We both have a sports background, so we have that teamwork mentality.” So do they want to get married? Deiterlan says, “If we were given the same legal rights and benefits, then absolutely. But it doesn’t affect our level of commitment.” Wollenberg chimed in, “I’m all about a gift registry.”

The Deihls

Cypress head chef Craig Deihl and wife Colleen, co-owner of Scoop Studios, have learned more about art and food than they ever imagined. “I knew some about food before,” Colleen says, “but nothing close to what he knows. I think people think better of me because of him.” The Deihls have been together for 10 years and married for five. Craig proposed to Colleen while she was finishing up a shift at the Boulevard Diner. “It was Dec. 20th. Her co-workers were all in on it, but she wouldn’t leave early to go to the Christmas Festival at Marion Square. So I sat down and ordered some food,” he said. When he was done, he left his dime worth of change in a black ring box on the table. “A dimemond!” Colleen said, “Craig’s playing a joke on me!” He replied, “No, I’m not. Come over here, and I’ll give you the real thing.” She made him get down on one knee on the diner floor, and then they celebrated at Cypress with grease-stained pants and fried-chicken-smelling hair. Every year of their relationship has brought change. Craig’s switch from Magnolias to Cypress. His cookbook. Their engagement. Colleen’s schooling. Their marriage. A daughter, Keegan. And then Scoop. What’s next? Craig says, “Basically, if we can make it through all of that, especially my switch from Magnolias to Cypress — and we weren’t even married yet! — then we can make it through anything.” PHOTOGRAPHS PROVIDED BY EACH COUPLE

Tender rings of squid are seasoned with orange zest, pesto, tomato bits and paper thin slices of fennel strewn over wilted spinach. The orange is the gesso to the flavors of capers and fennel. The appetizer selection is limited: Especially if you discount sweet potato fries ($5) and the generous order of lemon-curry mussels ($10) that easily can be an entree. A house salad ($4.75) is served with a sweet-tart pomegranate vinaigrette; the remaining salads are entree sized.

The mozzarella and tomato ($10) is best saved for summer. There is a housemade vinaigrette if you prefer a classic dressing for your greens. There were two specials at the time of our visit, both were seafood: flounder and triggerfish. The kitchen cares about local and seasonal and it was humorous to see the notation on the menu that the menu changes annually.

Bowen’s Island provides backdrop for feature film


“Angel Camouflaged”

bthompson@postandcourier. com

One just naturally wants to like a feature film shot in the Charleston area, enjoying how familiar locations are utilized and the ways in which indigenous talents help tell the tale. Especially so when cast and crew were so relaxed and amiable toward set visitors, a rare state of affairs. Shot here in the fall of 2009, “Angel Camouflaged” had a lot going for it: writerdirector Michael Givens of Beaufort, already an accomplished cinematographer; veteran producer-writer Ken Dalton; a dynamic young leading lady (Dilana Robichaux) making her film debut and performing her own music; generally strong supporting players and a long-time star actor (James Brolin) to anchor the cast. The principal location for the film, which will be screened at 6:45 p.m. Feb. 18 at the Beaufort Film Festival (Feb. 16-20), was Bowen’s Island, its “rustic” dock restaurant re-dressed as a

Anna Bell’s tasty menu has something for everyone BY ROB YOUNG

Special to The Post and Courier


nna Bell’s has settled comfortably into the Navy Yard at Noisette, its tasty, down-home treats providing a pretty swell introduction. Corrugated metal covers portions of the walls, as the restaurant occupies the space from the former eatery Tracy’s. It’s a cozy space, and perhaps familiar. Anna Bell’s sister restaurants include the Locklear’s outposts in Folly Beach and Mount Pleasant, a pair of steady performers. Breakfast at Anna Bell’s brings a mess of flap jacks, omelets and eggs Benedict recipes. Consider the Taylor Made Bene ($7.31), brimming with poached eggs, pork roll and cheddar cheese sauce, or the Bene-Tom ($6.40), consisting of poached eggs, fried green tomatoes and dill hollandaise ($6.40). A meal could be made with the starters, like the baskets of hush puppies ($1.83) and corn bread with honey butter ($1.83). Or the fried green tomatoes with dill shallot mayo ($3.66), and fresh cut chips ($1.83) sliced from regular and sweet potatoes. But my favorite: a plate of tasty corn fritters ($3.66), served compressed

Say, you want mozzarella cheese on your burger, plus pork roll, onion rings and spicy mustard. Boom, the Betty Lou is yours. Craving fire-roasted red bell peppers and goat cheese? Try the Goat Bell. Otherwise, choices are as varied as buttermilk fried chicken breast sandwiches, homemade meatloaf, fried fish baskets and a Carolina Hot Red plate of corn bread, oven-roasted pork loin and red-eye gravy. One of the sandwiches, appropriately titled “the King,” could even double as dessert (count me in for seconds). It’s grilled with peanut butter, bananas and honey, then topped with powdered sugar. Also: Yum.

‘The Eagle’ looks good, but lacks gripping script BY ROGER MOORE The Orlando Sentinel


he mystery of the disappearance of Rome’s IX Legion Hispana inspires yet another moderately rousing action picture in “The Eagle,” a film based on Rosemary Sutcliff’s popular 1950s novel about “The Eagle of the Ninth.” Eagle-eyed period-piece fans will recall that last fall another movie, “Centurion,” drew inspiration from the same piece of history. That film, essentially a prolonged chase from Bmovie vet Neill Marshall (“The Descent”), had a breathless momentum that “The Eagle” lacks. But “Eagle” director Kevin Macdonald (“State of Play,” “The Last King of Scotland”) manages to deliver a striking, nicely detailed, visceral thriller built on a corny, oldfashioned script. Channing Tatum plays Marcus Aquila, a young soldier with a new command on a fort on Roman Britannia’s frontier. He’s the sort of chiseled, charmed warrior who doesn’t need his helmet half the time, who hears what others don’t and senses the Big Attack when the veterans of the outpost think “the boy” is just skittish. Marcus has reason to be on edge. He’s fighting for the honor he believes his father lost 20 years before. That’s when the Ninth Legion marched north and into oblivion. They lost their unit standard, the eagle, in the process. Marcus longs to redeem the family name and retrieve the eagle from the “tainted legion.” First he must recover from battle wounds he sustains saving his men. He must overcome the skepticism of his patrician uncle (Donald

And he must win the loyalty of the slave (Jamie Bell, buff and feral) who must guide him, in disguise, to the Land of the Painted Seal People. Tatum’s rock-solid build has always suggested “soldier,” even when he was playing a dancer in “Step Up.” But he’s not a commanding presence, especially playing a commander. He throws what weight he can behind such lines as, “The Eagle is not a piece of metal. It is ROME.” For my money, “Centurion,” using similar Scottish and Eastern European locations, and with the formidable Michael Fassbender as its star Roman, it is a more

rousing and entertaining movie. But Macdonald gets more out of his Scottish locations (he is a Scot, after all), and had the budget to get a lot of detail right. The film’s early scenes of marching, clanking soldiers and brutish slaughter let you smell the sweat behind the armor. Outside of “Gladiator” (clearly a big influence on this film), these movies don’t seem to go over on this continent the way they do in Europe. That’s the real mystery here. Combat that’s up close and personal, tactics torn from the pages of history and messages of honor, freedom, survival and comradeship — it shouldn’t matter that the warriors wear skirts.

Classic tale gets a cartoon makeover in ‘Gnomeo & Juliet’ movie review

The Orlando Sentinel


wo households, both alike in dignity, In fair Verona, where we lay our scene. From ancient grudge break to new mutiny ...” And at about this point the gnome reciting the prologue to “Romeo and Juliet” is yanked off stage by a big Bugs Bunny hook. For this is no epic tale of woe, this romance of Juliet and her Gnomeo. Even if “the story you are about to see has been told before. A lot.” You’ve never seen it told like this. “Gnomeo & Juliet” is a daft and generally deft British animated retelling of the star-crossed romance set in adjacent English backyard gardens and set to the music of Elton John (he and his Rocket Films produced it).

Then Gnomeo spies fair Juliet, and you adults know the rest. Gnomeo is smitten, and Juliet? “Because I’m Red, I’m feelin’ blue.” Other voices include Ozzy Osbourne, Julie Walters and

Hulk Hogan. In this version of the romance, a goofy lovesick plastic flamingo (Jim Cummings) is the friar, that one person sympathetic to star-crossed lovers. The funny sidekicks aren’t funny enough, save for the porcelain frog, Nannette (Ashley Jensen), who fills the role of Juliet’s nurse. “A Red and a Blue, it just can’t be. It’s DOOMED. That’s the best kind of romance!” Director and co-writer Kelly Asbury (“Shrek 2”) finds a few jokes and a few moments of heart, just enough to lift “Gnomeo” above most recent animated B-movies. But it’s a pity he didn’t err on the side of Shakespeare and not of “Shrek.” The pathos and wit of the Bard bests the sight-gags and one-liners of the Big Green Ogre every time.

Despair takes center stage in Javier Bardem’s ‘Biutiful’ BY ROGER MOORE Orlando Sentinel


gliness earns the label “art” in “Biutiful,” a film so gritty, grungy and depressing as to stand alone in a cinema built around beauty. Lovely but downbeat in the extreme, this seemingly personal project from Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (“Amores Perros,” “21 Grams,” “Babel”) is the biggest movie downer since “Never Let Me Go,” and less hopeful, less focused than the Mexican director’s earlier films. And if that hasn’t scared you off, here’s what this movie, opening Friday in Orlando, is about. The great Javier Bardem is Uxbal, a Catalan fixer, the middle man who finds under-the-table work for Spain’s legions of illegal Asian and African immigrants. He’s paid by Hai (Cheng Tai Shen) to get them housed. Hai, whose gay lover has just come over from the old country, exploits these illegals in his designer purse knock-off sweatshop. Uxbal supervises the Senegalese vendors who hawk the fake designer purses on the street. Uxbal has a bi-polar notquite-ex-wife (Maricel Alvarez, in an alarming and fearlessly unsympathetic performance), a real freak show who is sleeping with his brother (Eduard Fernandez) leaving Uxbal to raise his little girl and younger son on his own. That fatherly side of him tries to show a little humanity to the various immigrants

n the low-budget 3-D cave-diving adventure “Sanctum,” a little bit of rain causes a lot of death: by accident, murder and a bizarre amount of assisted suicide. Who needs those chipper Chilean miners, anyway? Eschewing such heartwarming tales, “Sanctum,” directed by Australian Alister Grierson and produced by 3-D guru James Cameron, is more interested in the savage realities of survival. A large expedition headed by grizzled Aussie explorer Frank McGuire (Richard Roxburgh) is knee-deep in mapping the mile-deep Esa-ala Caves of Papua New Guinea. Frank’s less ambitious 17-year-old son, Josh (Rhys Wakefield), along with the team’s financier daredevil Carl (Ioan Gruffudd) and his equally gung-ho girlfriend, Victoria (Alice Parkinson), have just arrived. Set deep in the jungle, the mouth of the expansive cave system (actually shot in Australia) is enormous and cylindrical. You half expect the Millennium Falcon of “Star Wars” to come shooting out with a giant worm in close pursuit. In the complex labyrinth of cavernous chambers and underground rivers beneath the surface, the danger is less alien.

Today’s hand, from the 2006 Bonnteamstournament,illuminates a brilliant defense by Tom Townsend. At one table Colin Simpson received a club lead and had no difficulty in bringing home his three-no-trump contract, given the kindly lie of the opponents’ major-suit cards. He unblocked hearts, then led a spadetowardthedummy.When Westwonhiskingandreturneda lowclub,thatalloweddeclareran easy route to nine tricks. Townsend, at the other table, also led a club against the notrumpgame.Declarerunblocked the hearts, then led a spade towarddummy.Winningperforce, Townsend appreciated that declarer held most, if not all, of the hidden high-card points. So he switched to the diamond jack. This ruse needed his partner, David Gold, to hold the 10, but without that card, there would have been no defense. Declarer, reading West for the diamondJ-10andEastfortheace, wasnotinclinedtosmellarat.He won in hand with the king, then played another spade toward dummy.Backonlead,Townsend led the diamond three. The eight from dummy lost to Gold’s 10, and Gold returned a diamond to Townsend’s ace. Westnowfixeddeclarerfirmly in dummy by returning his last heart, and Gold took the setting trick with the spade jack — from a hand that at the outset looked unlikely to take even one trick, let alone two.
