Area talent displayed at Indie Grits Film Festival in Columbia


he capstone film in the career of Helen Hill, “The Florestine Collection,” and the customary array of new work from the South will be showcased in the fifth annual Indie Grits Film Festival, April 13-17 in Columbia. With its goal of “empowering all levels of Southern filmmakers with an independent mentality and far-reaching artistic scope,” the festival also will feature live music performances, a juried craft fair and a Slow Foods Columbia fundraising dinner. Screenings will be at the Nickelodeon Theatre on Main Street. After the films, Fork & Spoon Records, a local Columbia label composed of University of South Carolina alumni, will host four local bands at Immaculate Consumption, next door to the Nickelodeon. Admission is free to all events with a festival pass ($125). A pass for screenings alone is $75.

“The Florestine Collection,” by Helen Hill and Paul Gailiunas, is a part of the festival.


Competition winners will be announced April 17 at a filmmakers’ brunch at the Columbia Museum of Art, and winning films will be shown at the Nickelodeon all afternoon. “The Florestine Collection” by the late experimental animator Helen Hill, who was murdered in a home invasion in New Orleans in 2007, was inspired by her discovery of more than 100 handmade dresses in a trash pile during Mardi Gras.

She proceeded to make a film about the dressmaker, an African-American seamstress who had recently passed away. Much of the film footage later was damaged by flood waters during Hurricane Katrina, and it was her husband, Paul Gailiunas, who completed the film. The movie is very much in keeping with the Indie Grits focus. “We were tired of films filled with caricatured rednecks and trailer

parks, so we created Indie Grits to showcase the exciting new work coming out of the Southeast,” says festival director Andy Smith. “We embrace films and filmmakers from the fringes of the indie and experimental world, those who appreciate filmmaking for what it is, rather than thinking of it as a steppingstone to bigger filmmaking.” Reach Bill Thompson at 937-5707.

No grits, no glory

Family-friendly World Grits Festival returns to St. George


Special to The Post and Courier


f you’re a fan of grits, you might want to make the trek to St. George, a town of about 2,000 people between Orangeburg and Summerville. The town’s one festival a year is the World Grits Festival. From Friday’s grits meals to Sunday afternoon’s folk singing, visitors can expect games, contests, a parade and, of course, lots of grits in the town that calls itself the “grits capital of the world.” Friday’s activities include grits grinding, a corn-shelling contest and a carnival. And, if you really want to get your hands covered in grits, try the Rollin’ in the Grits contest Saturday and Sunday. It’s just what it sounds like: Contestants are weighed before and after they jump in a big plastic swimming pool filled with grits and water. “Whoever comes out with the most grits on their body is the winner,” explains Faye Utsey, a member of the festival’s steering committee. “They’ll wear sweatsuits, some of them wear jackets with pockets, they only have so many seconds. It’s crazy, but they seem to enjoy it.” Also on Saturday is a grits eating contest. And, of course, grits will be served inside the grits building all three days. But, it’s not just eating grits. At 9 a.m. Saturday, there will be a 5K run and a kids fun run. Later on in the day, there will be a parade, dunking booth, youth basketball


if you go WHAT: World Grits Festival. WHEN: 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Friday; 7 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday; noon-4 p.m. Sunday. WHERE: St. George. FESTIVAL INFO: DIRECTIONS: Travel I-26 west to I-95. Go south on I-95 and then take exit 77 at St. George/U.S. Highway 78. Turn left. Travel on Hwy. 78 until reaching S.C. Highway 15 (second traffic light) and turn right. The festival is half a mile ahead just after the railroad tracks.

The grits roll at the World Grits Festival in St. George is one of the most popular parts of the weekend-long event.

toss, hula hoop contest, music and dancing. Sunday’s events include a wheelbarrow race, a corn toss contest and the carnival again. Started in 1985, the festival celebrated St. George’s high

consumption of grits. The town says that it had the record for most grits eaten per person that year. And, more than two decades later, Utsey thinks the town still might hold that record.


Grits Festival Proceeds from the nonprofit festival go back into planning next year’s festival and to six scholarships for high school seniors in the

community. According to Utsey, the festival is “run totally by volunteers.” Utsey estimated that several thousands of people come to St. George for the festival, but the festival’s website says as many as 45,000 people have attended in a year. There will be about 50 vendors featuring food, arts and crafts and businesses, Utsey notes. “It’s a family-oriented festival,” Utsey says. “Bring the

family and come, just relax.” Children from local schools will display artwork inside the Grits Building. St. George is off I-95. Once in the town, head to the grits building. Streets will be blocked off, and parking is on available surrounding streets. The grits building is usually open just for event hosting during the year, but will be open during the festival and the days leading up to it. No bicycles, pets or skateboards will be allowed. The festival is rain or shine.

Farmers Markets are back and in full bloom


lowers are blooming and temperatures are warming up, but one of the biggest signs that spring finally has arrived is the return of area farmers markets. Whether you “window shop” or splurge a little on some local art, you’re sure to have a great time.

Market madness

At 8 a.m. Saturday, the 22nd annual Charleston Farmers Market will take over Marion Square. Throngs of tourists and locals alike will flock to the park to shop for local produce, fresh flowers, locally made food items, home decor and more. Visitors may enjoy live entertainment while they shop. I recommend stopping by the Charleston Crepe Co.’s tent and grabbing a snack. Last year, I tried a sugar-dusted Nutella and strawberry crepe with a cup of chicory coffee. It was one of the tastiest and cheapest brunches I ate all summer. The Charleston Farmers Market is open 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturdays through Dec. 18. Call 724-7309. Can’t make it downtown on Saturday? You don’t have to miss out on the fun. The Mount Pleasant Farmers Market opens on the grounds of Moultrie Middle School at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday. Like the downtown market, the Mount Pleasant location will give shoppers the opportunity to purchase

The market returns Saturday to Marion Square. locally grown fruits and vegetables, arts and crafts, preserves, pies and more. Each week’s market will feature live music from artists and groups such as the Southern Flavor Bluegrass Band, Susie Summers, Bluestone Ramblers and others. There also will be games, crafts and other activities. The Mount Pleasant Farmers Market opens at 3:30

p.m. and closes at dark. It will run through Oct. 18. Moultrie Middle is at 645 Coleman Boulevard. Call 884-8517 or visit www. Can’t get enough local shopping? The Summerville Farmers Market opens at 8 a.m. Saturday in the First Citizens Bank parking lot on Main Street. It is open until 1 p.m. Call 871-6000.

The Coosaw Pointe Farmers Market opens Wednesday at the baseball field behind Publix on Dorchester Road. It is open noon-6 p.m. Wednesdays. The North Charleston Farmers Market will open in the middle of Park Circle around 11 a.m. April 21.

Pet Fest

Once you get your fill of

shopping, you might want to check out Pet Fest 2011, happening 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Palmetto Islands County Park in Mount Pleasant. A Lowcountry favorite, Pet Fest gives pets and their owners a chance to compete in various contests including the Meet the Breed Dog Show, browse pet-related vendors, watch and partici-

pate in dock diving and visit dog-washing stations. The weekend’s events also will include children’s activities and music by Unkle Funkle on Sunday. Admission is $5 for adults and free for children 12 and under, Gold Pass members and leashed pets. Palmetto Islands County Parks is 444 Needlerush Parkway. Call 795-4FUN.

Expect even more for Saturday’s second annual event that starts at 8:30 a.m. on the beach at Station 16. Visit

Wine, a woman and song Jazz greats will perform at The Pour House April 14


arsa, a nice, new tapas joint in Elliottborough, the jazziest neighborhood on the peninsula these days, is already emerging as a kind of crossroads. It’s at King and Line streets, just a couple of blocks from Cannon and St. Philip’s Jazz House, home to Jazz Artists of Charleston. So it’s convenient to my path and routine. Owner Drazen Romic, who opened Lana in Elliottborough a few years ago, has put in a comfortable, easy-going space with great food and drink. And it suits the arts and entertainment crowd. It’s diverse, moderately priced and open late. Late one night a few weeks ago, I ran into Leigh-Ann Beverley, a friend and Charleston area rep for AdVintage Fine Wine & Craft Brews. I first met her at the bar at FIG in that restaurant’s early days some years ago. We were among a number of hard-core food, drink and music fans who used to gather there to hear Quentin Baxter’s ensemble, the house band. It had been a while, so it was great to see her that night. While we were catching up, she dropped some really good news on me. She had mounted her first effort as a live music producer and put together a concert by Mago, a duet of John Medeski and Billy Martin of the famed jazz band Medeski Martin & Wood. I knew that Leigh-Ann, 29, is multitalented. She’s good at her job, socially skilled and she’s an excellent pho-

tographer and videographer. But, I have to admit I was surprised when she told me of her plans. Producin’ ain’t easy. When I asked her that night why she took this on, she said, “I just want to be on the music train.” I detected then that she had the most fundamental elements necessary to make a good jazz producer: She loves the music and the people who bring it. Certainly, other skill sets are necessary but that’s the foundational quality. Mago will perform April 14 at The Pour House on James Island. John and Billy first played together in 1989 in Billy’s Brooklyn, N.Y., loft. Bassist Chris Wood joined them to form MMW in 1991. John plays organ, the classic Hammond B3, and Billy is a percussionist. From the beginning, the contemporary groove band has been organic in its approach. In an email exchange two weeks ago, Billy said of Mago, “We didn’t talk much. We just played almost continuously for two hours. ... We wanted to make a record but Chris (Wood, bassist) came into the picture right after that and seemed to be the perfect band. So, we vowed to make a duet record someday ... 15 years later!” The sound of both bands soars off into all sorts of musical directions but it has lots of funk, heavy backbeats with a party kind of

I was helping Billy shoot some footage for his DVD ‘Fly in the Bottle’ and they were letting me live my ‘Almost Famous,’ the moviestyle dream.” As for the name Mago, Billy explained to me where it comes from. “We looked into a dear winemaker’s translations of some of the earliest evidence of documented winemaking and grape harvesting. Our wine-making friend and transcriber is Sean Thackrey, my favorite of winemakers. It contains the agricultural manual writings of Mago of Carthage.” Well, I wish Leigh-Ann of Charleston best wishes on her maiden voyage into the world of jazz producing. I look forward to lifting a glass with her, John, Billy and other friends next week.

Style Swap Fashionista style in ‘recessionista’ times


Special to The Post and Courier


uesday’s Style Swap at The Renaissance Hotel on Wentworth gives women the chance to trade in some of their tired duds for a new fashion piece or two. You know those garments: the ones you’ve worn on the scene one too many times. Swap them out for a designer piece from the closet from another stylish local. Katie Kern of Crica PR teamed up with Wilmington’s “Style Girl” Jess James to create the recurring event in the Lowcountry.

Her fashion card is full, and she is quickly becoming a style staple in Charleston. Next week’s Style Swap is her fifth here. The gist of the evening is fashionable women swapping out clothes they barely wore and never wear anymore for a couple of pieces in the room they can’t leave without. For $15, it’s a steal. The event also gives guests a chance to shop before they swap. Participating vendors include Candy Shop Vintage, Taashki handbags, Berlins for Women and Crissy Rowell of Stella and Dot. All locals.

Kulture Klash arts fest returns Saturday to North Charleston BY DENISE K. JAMES

Special to The Post and Courier


if you go WHAT: Kulture Klash 7 WHEN: 7 p.m.-2 a.m. Saturday WHERE: Noisette at the Navy Yard, 10 Storehouse Row in North Charleston TICKETS: $15 in advance at and $20 on the day of the event or at the door. INFO: BADJON PHOTOGRAPHY

Kulture Klash features more than 65 artists, live painting, dance collaborations, music, performances and more. Food and drinks will be provided by New Belgium Brewery, Social Wine Bar, Roti Rolls, Roots Ice Cream and Annabell’s. There will be an ATM on site.

have a confession to make: I’ve never been to Kulture Klash. The date of the festival has always “klashed” with something else I’ve had to do. So imagine my delight when I realized I can actually attend this time. Scott Debus and his friends, Gustavo Serrano and Ambergre Sloan, started the arts festival known as Kulture Klash in 2007. As artists in the Lowcountry who each worked with a different medium, they thought a festival such as Kulture Klash, which celebrates all types of art in the city, would be a good idea. They hoped the festival would help local artists network, have fun and get inspired. “We try to focus on the locals,” says Debus. “This time, we will have more than 70 artists, more than we’ve ever had.” One of the coolest things about Kulture Klash is that each festival has its own central “theme.” The theme functions as sort of a challenge for the artists and a chance for them to work on something specifically for the festival. Each artist contributes about five pieces to the show. Most of the art is new and has never appeared elsewhere in the city. “The artists tend to get really elaborate with their contributions,” says Debus. “This year, for water, we have people making surfboards. Last fall, the theme was Carnival. We’ve also had bicycles and paint-by-number before. “ Of course, it’s not all visual. Kulture Klash also hosts a

variety of dancers, musicians and other quirky demonstrations and exhibits. Plan on a six-part dance performance between sculptor Lauren Francis Moore and choreographer Gretchen McClain. And there will be a crazy wakeboard demonstration, where participants will do a 75-yard pull on a wakeboard through a swimming pool in an alley. “We try to make sure it’s always different,” says Debus. “In the past, we’ve had theatrical performances, spoken word and even stand-up comedy. People come to the festival for all sorts of reasons, but I’d say my favorite is usually the art.” Music at the event will include Jason and the Juggernauts, Red Super Giant, the Dubplates, and something new, a “Yacht Rock” dance party, that Debus promises will be fun and hilarious. “If you look up ‘yacht rock’ on YouTube, you’ll find some examples,” he says. “It’s all about making fun of soft rock from the late ’70s and early ’80s. It’s hysterical.” There will be food from Roti Rolls, Annabell’s Restaurant and the Little Blue Brunch Truck. And bring your I.D. as Social will be providing beer and wine. This weekend’s installment of Kulture Klash is likely going to be the last one until next spring. “We’re switching over to just one time per year,” says Debus. “From now on, we’ll have it just in the spring, instead of spring and fall. And this is the perfect time to come out. We’re going to have the return of (longtime Charleston aritst) Carl Janes! Fans won’t be disappointed.”

The Whigs Wednesday at The Pour House There’s no doubt that Athens, Ga., has produced some great bands. Of course there’s R.E.M., along with Of Montreal, Drive-By Truckers and Widespread Panic, to name a few. So, it should be no surprise when another great band surfaces from the Georgia rock mecca. Garage-rock trio The Whigs have proven to be one of Athens’ most promising offspring in recent years. Please see MUSIC, Page 13E

MUSIC From Page 12E


Athens, Ga., golden child Venice Is Sinking created dreampop perfection with 2006’s debut full-length “Sorry About the Flowers.” Since then, the quintet has enjoyed glowing reviews from music critics around the country and released two more albums. The sound is an enveloping wonder, complete with string arrangements, whispering vocals and inescapable melodies that have made the band one of Athens’ prized townies. The band recorded its latest album, “Sand & Lines,” during a four-day, two-mick recording binge at the Georgia Theatre in 2008 just months before the historic theater burned. Venice is Sinking will perform Friday with fellow Athens natives The Modern Skirts and Hope for Agoldensummer. Tickets are $5 at the door. Doors open at 9 p.m. Call 571-0775.


Venice is Sinking.

The band formed in 2002 and kept itself busy throughout the early part of the millennium with the release of its 2005 debut, “Give ’Em All a Big Fat Lip” and opening for such acts as Franz Ferdinand, Maroon 5 and The Killers. The band’s third and latest album, “In the Dark,” followed early last year and again saw the band opening for Black Rebel Motorcycle Club on its U.S. tour and Kings of Leon on its U.S. and U.K./Europe tour. The Whigs will perform Wednesday at The Pour House, 1977 Maybank Hwy., with Firework Show and Company of Thieves. Tickets are $13 in advance, $15 the day of the show and are available at the door or online at Doors open at 8 p.m., show starts at 9 p.m. Visit or call 571-4343 for more information.

‘The Fool’s Lear’ paved with ingenious intentions

Special to The Post and Courier


puppets made out of props; a silver stein with a purple feather serves as a medium for the French knight. The use of props in “The Fool’s Lear” is ingenious. The propmaster plus the puppetmaster have achieved a new level of characterization, and with Grant Neale’s knack for accents, voices and physical humor, the whole effect is delightful storytelling. Reminiscent of a fairy tale, the costumes and set design are lighthearted, colorful and incorporate the harlequin pattern. Similar to a large 3-D puzzle, a wooden bed built around a trunk disassembles, like Lear’s kingdom, into three sections to be used separately throughout the per-

formance. Above the stage hangs a large, metal mobile that is used throughout to hang props and such. With such an unusual design, the Fool is busy working with so many props. Although Grant Neale stayed in character, his busyness was distracting at times and seemed overwhelming for the actor. Shakespeare’s tragic plot is familiar, and the two characters are endearing, but despite the production’s mastery and craft, the emotional connection is upstaged by the intellectual inventiveness of the production. All is not lost. No doubt, “The Fool’s Lear” will mature with repeat performances to convey the playwright’s good intensions.


Grant Neale (left) and Randy Neale of “King’s Lear.” The play runs through April 16 at Charleston Ballet Theatre’s Black Box, 477 King St. Tickets are $20$25 in advance by calling (866) 811-4111 or $25–$30 at the door. Visit for more information.

he Charleston Air Expo 2011 is set to take place this weekend, and it’s sure to be a spectacular event. Whether you appreciate the dare-devil, hair-raising aspect of the show or you’re interested in seeing some historic aircrafts, there’s something for everyone. Plus, it’s free to attend. Charleston’s first Air Expo took place in the early ’90s. Since then, it’s been a Lowcountry tradition about every couple of years. Yet the 2011 expo is the first in a while. “We have a great history in Charleston of these expos,” says Bill Walsh, one of this year’s event coordinators. “Our last one was in 2008, but they usually take place a bit more often. We lost some people after that year’s expo to deployment and other things,” said Walsh, a lieutenant colonel with the Air Force Reserves. “It takes a lot of people to put an event like this together, and a lot of preparation. It’s a huge undertaking. But it’s worth it for the community.” This year’s show will be packed with stunts. Fans can expect to see old favorites, plus some very accurate, and amazing, historical re-enactments. “The Tora Tora Tora, a word that means “Tiger” in Japanese, is one of the most awesome demonstrations that we feature,” says Walsh, who is the chief meteorologist for WCSC Channel 5 News. “It’s a re-enactment of the incident at Pearl Harbor, and it actually involves pyrotechnics so that you see flames! I’ve seen this particular show, and it’s very real. It’s a wonderful tribute to the folks who worked hard during World War II.” Another segment, known as the Doolittle Raid, will feature the B-25 airplane that bombed Tokyo during World War II. “This airplane is brought to us by the Disabled American Veterans,” says Walsh. “It’s a privilege to have it in the show.” Fans of acrobatic planes will have plenty to watch, including the much-loved Air Force Thunderbirds, another group called the Aerostars that Walsh describes as “awesome,” and a well-known acrobatic pilot, Greg Poe. “We’re very thrilled to have them all,” he says. The Sky Typing portion of the Expo will kick off with a large American Flag in the sky, drawn precisely by some of the best pilots. The planes used for the typing are vintage, singleengine airplanes from World War II. Other aircrafts included in the Expo are the A10, the F15 and the FA-18, also known as ‘The Hornet,” plus many more.

“There will be so many different planes in the show,” laughs Walsh. “We’ll have tiny planes and we’ll have giant monstrosities. We’ll even have some helicopters!” An Air Expo of this size typically takes about six months of preparation, and Walsh says most of the participants will get into town early so they can practice. “Typically, all the pilots arrive on the Wednesday or Thursday before the show takes place,” he says. “They do a good bit of practicing, and sometimes they do private demonstrations for friends and family too.” One cool thing that the pilots will do before the show is visit a few of the area schools and talk to the students. The ones participating this year are Wando, Fort Dorchester and North Charleston high schools. “The students really love it. They love meeting real, live pilots,” says Walsh. “And they get to learn what it’s like to be a pilot, or to serve the U.S. in the armed forces.” As for Saturday, get out to the base early. The gates open at 8 a.m., admission is free, and Walsh says that as many as 80,000 people could show up. “We’ve added a good deal more parking this year and a better traffic plan. You can view the parking plan on our website (,” he says. Folks can bring beach chairs and blankets to sit on while they watch the show, and of course, food and beverages are for sale. Just leave the coolers, tpets and weapons at home. In the morning, early visitors can expect a DJ to be pumping tunes to get the crowd ready for action. Later, most of the acts during the show are set to their own music, explains Walsh. “You’ll hear music all day long, and airplane engines,” he says. The day will include an assortment of “static displays,” such as other airplanes, ships from the Coast Guard, and even ground vehicles. Besides being a fun-filled day of surprises, the Air Expo is a great chance for the public to spend some time on the base and see what it’s like. “This is an opportunity for Charleston’s military officials and the public to meet each other,” says Walsh. “Since last autumn when the base here in North Charleston became a joint base (for Navy and Air Force), we’re even more excited to have the public visit and enjoy themselves. “You don’t even have to be an air enthusiast to come out and have fun. We’ll have lots of attractions for children and adults. It’s an amazing event.”


The Air Force Thunderbirds will once again demonstrate their high-flying precision at Saturday’s Charleston Air Expo. For more information,

Bricco Bracco

Courting your appetite for all things Italian


Special to The Post and Courier


ricco Bracco opened in December in a Mount Pleasant shopping center adjacent to the Harris Teeter Supermarket at U.S. Highway 17 and Six Mile Road. It translates its name as “this and that.” Modern in appointments, it features as open kitchen, a mozzarella bar, pizza grill station and bar. A short wall divides the dining room proper from the bar areas. “Mozzarella bar” was music to my mouth. Would this be a clone of Obika in Rome and Manhattan? Could this be the go-to spot for mozzarella di bufala, mozzarella affumicata and stracciatella di burrata? Not quite. Bricco Bracco pulls its mozzarella in-

The chicken giambotta ($14) is memorable. This well-balanced dish combined chicken, seared rounds of sausage, chili peppers, hot cherry peppers, onions, mushrooms and a topping of thin, crisped potato chips. Spice, wine, texture and taste demonstrated assured cooking from the kitchen in this accomplished dish. Swordfish ($20) was simply seared and placed over a tomato-basil risotto. The fish was moist, seasoned with a well-modulated hand and topped with a frizzle of crisped leeks whose fried tangle of flavors enhanced both the fish and the rice. The rice, however, tasted more like rice cooked in tomatoes. It lacked the layered bite that comes from the sealing of the rice’s starch by a saute in oil followed by wine, stock, cheese and herbs that make a risotto such a great dish. Bricco Bracco’s version clung tightly to the bowl. The house wines complement the menu and are fairly priced. Tiramisu is made in-house. Other desserts are made for the

restaurant. The specialty drink menu is heavy on the sweet side. They may very well act as your last course: spumoni, espresso or chocolate martinis all err on the side of sugar. Or try the Paradiso with its Limoncello base and fresh lemon juice finish. On a recent weekend visit, Bricco Bracco struggled with the flow. The servers were physically hampered by tight passages from the bar to the dining room, and as the bar area filled with patrons, they experienced service gridlock. Our earnest and friendly server was not well-schooled in the preparations of the dishes. With a little investment in training, the restaurant’s cheerful staff will reap the benefits of a polished performance. As both the business and busyness of Bricco Bracco grows, it is clear that the staff will need fluid passages to deliver the “this” and the “that” of the kitchen. Diners have embraced the food. Management needs to improve the flow. And while at it, spell check the menu.

Lana’s Gelato sampler perfect for spring weather Special to The Post and Courier

on the menu

nless this is your first summer outside of Alaska, you know that while Charleston is lovely and temperate right now, it’s about to get hot. Never fear, fellow Southerners, I have found a way to beat the heat when the mercury starts to rise: Head to Lana and try the gelato sampler. Gelato, if you’re not familiar, is like ice cream in reverse. If ice cream is 80 percent cream and 20 percent milk, gelato is the opposite: It’s a little bit lighter but just as tasty. Gelato originated in Italy and can be traced back to the 16th century. John Ondo of Lana began experimenting with gelato when partner Drazen Romic brought him authentic Italian recipes. From that moment on, according to

Ondo, “I just went crazy. I started with chocolate, then almond and then anything else that I could think of.” Right now on Lana’s menu are chocolate, ginger, cinnamon, coconut, strawberry, mixed berry and mint. I went into this awesome gelato tasting experiment believing that I would like coconut the best. It was delicious, but the mint blew me away. It was so fresh and fragrant that it tasted like a refreshing and deliciously sweet ice cube; it actually tasted green. It doesn’t hurt knowing that the mint is grown in Lana’s herb garden. For me, the chocolate was a close second. Made with

cocoa powder and Callebaut chocolate from Belgium, it has a much deeper and truer chocolate flavor than most ice creams. The best part is, if you try the chocolate and the mint together, it’s like a gourmet Girl Scout cookie. The third flavor that I would recommend is the ginger. It’s very mild, and truth be told, I could take a bit more of a ginger kick, but it’s fresh and bright and delicious, nonetheless. Choose between two scoops of a single flavor for $5.95, or a single scoop of three flavors for $6.95. The sampler is the way to go. Served in sherry glasses on a small block of granite, it’s as pretty as it is delicious.

movie review

★★★★ (of 5) DIRECTOR: Joe Wright STARRING: Saoirse Ronan, Eric Bana, Cate Blanchett, Jessica Barden, Olivia Williams, Tom Hollander RATED: PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, some sexual material and language RUN TIME: 1 hour, 58 minutes WHAT DID YOU THINK?: Find this review at and offer your opinion of the film. around Spanish boys as she might be. One of the biggest surprises in all this is that “Hanna” is from the director of “Atonement,” “The Soloist” and “Pride & Prejudice.” Joe Wright, working from a script by Seth Lochhead and David Farr (the Brit spy series “MI-5”), delivers jolts and menace and ac-

tion movie problem-solving aplenty. This is a “Bourne” movie where the hero is a girl utterly naive to the real world. She’s never seen a city, never been kissed. But it’s the big, bad world that had better be on its guard. Wright and the writers work in all these film-buff friendly touches, references

to earlier classic thrillers. There’s a chase through an empty amusement park, a villain who fidgets with ball bearings, another (Tom Hollander, the deadly officious fop in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies) who whistles and is a throwback to the Golden Age of Hollywood gay cliches, the homicidal homosexual sadist. That lethal combination makes “Hanna” alternately nerve-racking and funny, a version of “The American” in which our loner-killer is amusingly befuddled by this or that detail of a world she has experienced little of. That makes for a thriller that is every bit as ruthlessly efficient and merciless as its titular heroine.

Today’s deal, from a recent Cavendish tournament, demonstrates that the expert player will frequently break the rules when the situation demands it. In this case,theruleisthatwhenleading asuit,oneselectsthehighestcard from a sequence and otherwise leads low. Whatever no-trump range North-South was using, that South hand seems to fit it. Zia Mahmood duly opened one no-trump and Bob Hamman (North)transferredtotwohearts to end the auction. Yes, one notrump might have been better, but no one did anything silly here. Marty Fleisher led ace and a second diamond, and Zia won the king and led a heart to the jack and ace. Fleisher continued the good work by leading a third diamond. Zia ruffed in dummy, played a club to the king and ace, then led a second trump. Eric Rodwell (East) won this and could see that he might need to take two spade tricks quickly. So he shifted to the spade 10, hoping for today’s lie of the cards. Zia covered with the queen, and when Fleisher played the king, Zia ducked it, assuming Fleisher heldboththekingandjack.Back cameasecondspade,andZiawas down whatever he did now. Had Rodwell shifted earlier to the spadejack,Ziawouldsurelyhave wrappedupeighttricksbycovering the jack with the queen and taking dummy’s ace at once, assuming the 10 to be on his right.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You can make a huge difference if you participate in a group or event that interests you. An offer is coming down the pipeline.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22DEC. 21): Don’t let friends come between you and your lover or immediate family. Let go of anyone who is giving you the runaround.

TAURUS (April 20May 20)): You will discover some new facts about how you can make your money grow in our current economic climate. Your concern with financial security will prompt you to look into real estate.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Clear up any debt you owe or that is owed to you, if possible. An impulsive move on your part or someone else’s will lead to a disagreement.

LIBRA (SEPT. 23OCT. 22): You’ll be at your best but not everyone will appreciate what you do. A change at work will lead to a better position or new location.

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18): Get together with old friends or colleagues. You’ll be surprised by what everyone is up to and how well you all fit together.

SCORPIO (OCT. 23NOV. 21): It may be hard to resist giving the object of your affections whatever he or she wants but, in the end, you will be ridiculed for being wasteful.

PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20): Speaking out may lead to emotional turmoil with someone you need working with you, not against you. Tread carefully.

GEMINI (May 21June 20): Nervous energy can lead to emotional mishaps when dealing with personal partners. Keep everything out in the open. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Face facts and take ownership of anything you may have done that might have hurt someone’s feelings.

Promiscuity no cause for pride

Happy birthday, Tennessee Williams D BY REBEKAH BRADFORD

Special to The Post and Courier


his year marks the 100th birthday of Tennessee Williams, who wrote some of the greatest plays in American literature. This week’s trivia honors the man who gave us two memorable characters: Blanche DuBois and Maggie the Cat. Last week’s first-time winner, Steve Dunleavy, is going up against Chad Williams, who works in retail.

1. True or false: Tennessee Williams was born in Tennessee, which is where his name comes from. 2. Which of his plays was his first great popular success? 3. How many times did he win the Pulitzer Prize? 4. Who famously played Stanley opposite Vivien Leigh in the movie version of “A Streetcar Named Desire”? 5. Several cities have shouting contests based on “A Streetcar Named Desire.” What do the contestants yell? 6. “Living with somebody you love can be lonelier than living entirely alone. If the one you love doesn’t love you.” Name the play. 7. Where does “A Streetcar Named Desire” take place? 8. Paul Newman starred in two film adaptations of Tennessee Williams plays. Name one. 9. Name the play where an ex-minister finds works as a tour guide in Mexico. 10. Williams left his literary rights to what school?


Playwright Tennessee Williams, seen in this 1980 portrait, is in his apartment in Manhattan, N.Y.


1. That seems false. 2. “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.” 3. I’ll say three. 4. Marlon Brando. 5. An imitation of Brando’s “Stella!” 6. I can’t tell if that’s from “A Streetcar Named Desire.” 7. New Orleans, LA. 8. I don’t know. 9. Don’t know this either. 10. Ole Miss.

CONCLUSION Dunleavy just barely hung on to his Head2Head title, but in the end, he turned out knowing just a little bit more than his opponent about Tennessee Williams. So Dunleavy will return next week as a two-time winner and face a new opponent. We’ll see if he has what it takes to get a streak going.

CHAD’S ANSWERS 1. Definitely true. 2. “Streetcar Named Desire.” 3. Once. 4. Brando baby. 5. (yelling) “Stella!” 6. “Streetcar.” 7. New Orleans. 8. Not “Streetcar.” 9. Not “Streetcar.” 10. USC. But probably not.

DEAR ABBY At 14, this girl is not able to give consent. What is happening is considered an act of rape, even if voluntary for her. Someone needs to intervene before some “innocent” boy is charged. The welfare of all the children is at stake! — “SNOOPER” IN WIS. DEAR ABBY: That mother is in need of counseling, and Naomi is in desperate need of guidance. I wonder if her dad knows what’s going on? — A MOM IN MONTANA DEAR ABBY: “Terrified’s” niece is being sexually abused. For her mother to crow about her daughter’s exploits makes her an unfit parent. “Terrified” needs to take a firm stand with her sister, and if she is ignored, the authorities should be contacted. — MIKE IN N.Y. DEAR ABBY: This mother is abdicating her responsibilities as a parent. The emotional damage could be irreparable. — BARBARA IN KALAMAZOO, MICH.

CORRECT ANSWERS 1. False. 2. “The Glass Menagerie.” 3. Two. 4. Marlon Brando. 5. “Stella!” 6. “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.”

7. New Orleans. 8. “Sweet Bird of Youth” and “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.” 9. “Night of the Iguana.” 10. University of the South.



EAR ABBY: I’m the mother of two boys 12 and 13. The letter from “Terrified for My Niece” horrified me. The aunt who wrote said her sister “bragged” about how popular her 14-yearold daughter is because she performs sex acts on boys. Is this the kind of girl my sons are exposed to at school? I know kids experiment, but it’s disturbing that this mother doesn’t see that her actions are dangerous and can lead to more serious sexual situations. If she were my niece, I would let her mom know exactly how I felt in hopes that she would recognize how inappropriate her daughter’s actions are. — YVETTE IN CALIF. DEAR YVETTE: Many readers were equally disturbed by that letter, and a few questioned its authenticity. I spoke to the aunt who wrote the letter. She verified that she had written it and everything she said was true. Read on: DEAR ABBY: I have been a criminal investigator more than 38 years. Having sex with Naomi is a felony in most, if not all, states, particularly if the boy is over 16.
