saturday’s charlie post classic marks 30 years


hirty years is a long time; just ask anyone younger than that. and that’s exactly how many years the charleston running club has been organizing a running event, the charlie post classic, to remember one of its earliest members, dr. charlie post. post died in 1984 from complications of a paralyzing bike wreck on the isle of palms the previous year. The running club renamed the family practice physicians run, which post started, to help him with his medical expenses. no one is more grateful for keeping his memory alive than the post family, especially charlie’s brother, stuart, who has run in all previous 29 post races. usually he’s been joined by other family members, some of whom never met “uncle charlie.” “if the running club makes this kind of effort every year, the least i can do is come and run the race. no matter what, i will be at that race,” said stuart, who was very close to his brother. stuart said the race is a special memorial, not only in its longevity but that it is a living, breathing event,

Family members of Dr. Charlie Post — niece Leiane Post (from left), sister-in-law Yannick Post, brother Stuart Post, niece Stephanie Willman, nephew Chaz Post and Stephanie’s husband, Kameron Willman — are pictured after last year’s race. just what charlie loved. he wanted people to be active and make the most of their bodies. “it’s also nice because the whole family gets together,” said stuart, adding that they usually make a stop at charlie’s house at 13 george st. for photos. Meanwhile, the charlie post classic has always been known as a race run by runners, which anyone who has endured the pitfalls of some races by nonrunners, i.e. civic clubs, understands.

“No matter what, I will be at that race.” stuart post, brother of the late dr. charlie post

The running club’s Jeff baxter, a co-race director, said that reaching the 30th year of charlie post classic is an important milestone for the club. “The race is on solid foot-

ing and has benefited from the support of many longtime friends and supporters,” baxter said. “in a time when races are morphing into events or entertainment, our focus has been to provide an affordable, fun, competitive race that is all about running and fitness. “we are proud to carry on the passion of dr. charlie post and his commitment to health, fitness and endurance running.” The 15k serves as the usa

eing “from off,” winters here in charleston have been an adjustment. growing up, i was just about guaranteed at least one snow day a school year, if not more. i distinctly remember one year where more than a week of school was missed because of a blizzard. while there are some aspects of snow i don’t miss (driving in it and frozen pipes, for example), it’s still something i actively seek out every once in a while (skiing, mostly).

teen love is big

studios step into the post-’twilight,’ pre-‘hunger games’ cinematic void by nicole sperling Los Angeles Times


ngsty teenage love may be as old as shakespeare and the bronte sisters, but with the starcrossed lover motif getting a makeover (often introducing elements of the supernatural) in the past few years from novelists stephenie Meyer and suzanne collins, hollywood has been stalking the young adult book market with the ferocity of a jilted lover. one result is a pileup at the box office this season of female-driven stories with strong-willed protagonists battling zombies, witches and aliens while wrestling with their own overwrought emotions. in the next three months (release dates are subject to change), summit entertainment, open road films and warner bros. will, respectively, release three movies targeting this voracious crowd: “warm bodies,” “The host” and “beautiful creatures.” but with so many fighting for attention, will there be enough audience adoration to go around? “what i think we have going for us is i think we hit a lot of the touch points (teenage girls) want: we have the romantic elements, we have a strong female character that i think is very appealing and we are tapping into the teenage worldview, when life is so vivid,” said Jonathan levine, screenwriter and director of the zombie romance “warm bodies,” which is set to open feb. 1. each of the three male

movies from page e6

writer-directors of these projects is coming to the genre for the first time, attracted to the high-stakes material for the varied themes each one offers on coming of age, love and internal struggle — the emotions that seem to overwhelm the teenage condition. adding in the supernatural aspect allowed each of the filmmakers a greater scope to tell his tale. while the new films have been made for a fraction of the price of their predecessors, key to their success will be luring in the “twilight”/“hunger games” audience. add in the fact that the “twilight” franchise ended in november and the next “hunger games” installment won’t hit theaters until Thanksgiving, and the studios are hoping there’s a built-in audience for this romantic fare. yet market researcher vincent debruzzese warns that simply because a book has a following with a specific audience segment does not mean that will translate to box office gold. “either they are ‘twilight,’ ‘hunger games,’ ‘harry potter’ or they are popular but they aren’t driving the box office,” debruzzese, president of the worldwide motion picture group ipsos Mediact in los angeles, said of the books. “only ‘The host,’ because it was stephenie Meyer’s book after ‘twilight’ and it got some traction right away, will have an impact. The others are big in their own right, but they won’t have an impact at the box office.”

Feeling alive

in “warm bodies,” levine was attracted to isaac Marion’s irreverent male protagonist, played by british 20-something nicholas hoult, a zombie living in a post-apocalyptic world unhappy with his soulless lifestyle. he meets and rescues Julie (played by young australian actress teresa palmer), one of the few remaining humans on the planet and the daughter of gen. grigio (John Malkovich),

the head of the beleaguered resistance movement. “i was so enamored with the idea of the protagonist. i always looked at him as a shy person, someone trapped in his own body who can’t express himself,” added levine, who said he has a very easy time tapping into the teenage mind-set. “i’ve always felt that way, especially when i was younger and especially if i was sitting across from a girl like teresa palmer. That would have made me pretty much mute.” while levine previously navigated the fine line between comedy and drama in the seth rogen/Joseph gordon-levitt cancer story “50/ 50,” he had the more difficult challenge of marrying zombie gore with teenage romance — a task rarely achievable in the genre game. “you have to earn romance more than anything else,” said levine, acknowledging it was the biggest challenge of making the $30 million movie shot on location in Montreal. “romance is hard. so that was scary.”

An alien situation

romance proved challenging, too, for writer-director andrew niccol, who in his quest to adapt Meyer’s lesser-known yet still bestselling novel “The host” was tasked with creating a believable love-triangleturned-love-rectangle when his protagonist played by irish actress saoirse ronan

(“atonement”) is invaded by an alien being nicknamed wanda, who falls in love with a different boy than the one host character Melanie loves. “in this case, i think it’s the complexity of this particular relationship (that’s attracting audiences),” said niccol, who collaborated closely with Meyer in adapting her sprawling 650-page novel into a digestible film due out March 29. his budget was $35 million. The new Zealand director’s previous work included such sci-fi films as “gattaca” and last year’s Justin timberlake/amanda seyfried vehicle “in time.” “i think that’s great for teenage girls who are starting to think romantically about the choices they have. The complexity of that is enticing,” he added.

Good and evil

richard lagravenese, a veteran screenwriter and director, took on the southern-set witch tale “beautiful creatures” because he thought the novel had social themes and coming-of-age ideas worth exploration. in a twist on the romeo and Juliet tale written by kami garcia and Margaret stohl, southern boy ethan wate (alden ehrenreich), frustrated with his hometown’s conservative ideals, meets the literal girl of his dreams, lena duchannes (alice englert), a mysterious young witch who at 16 gets claimed by either good or

evil forces. viola davis, emma Thompson and Jeremy irons fill out the cast. “i really liked that idea that at that age, we are struggling to figure out our identity, and it gets to a point where one has to disinherit ourselves from what our mothers and fathers want us to be and claim who we are, good and bad,” said lagravenese, whose film opens feb. 14. all three of the aforementioned titles have sequels either completed or in the works. Marion is writing his follow-up to “warm bodies,” which just hit the new york times best-seller list, while Meyer has plans for two more installments in “The host” trilogy. “beautiful creatures’” authors already have completed their series — four books in all. lagravenese, who experienced audience fervor when he adapted the screenplay to robert James waller’s “The bridges of Madison county” in 1995, stood back a bit from the maelstrom so he could maintain objectivity when adapting “beautiful creatures” for the screen. he made sure not to read the subsequent chapters of the series. Though the series has a devoted and wide-ranging fan base that reaches older women, too, lagravenese is relieved it’s not as fervent as “twilight” or “hunger games.” he thinks it has allowed him to make his adaptation more cinematic and less “slavish” than the others.

renner, arterton gear up for witch hunting as hansel, gretel by roger Moore MCT around the world, ask movie-lovers where they saw their first movie witch and the answer’s the same. “i was, like everyone, frightened by the witch in the wizard of oz,’ ” said english actress gemma arterton. “That’s who we all grew up with, right?” Jeremy “hurt locker” renner agrees. and he can top that. “ ‘wizard of oz’ was the very first job i ever had. on stage. i played the scarecrow. so for me, there was always just one witch. That first witch. The wicked witch of the west.” but, renner adds, “we were going for something a little darker, a little different, with our movie.” Their movie is “hansel & gretel: witch hunters,” a silly mashup of horror and hilarity produced by will ferrell’s team, and starring the guy carrying on “The bourne legacy” and the accomplished former bond babe. “They had me with that lead-line, the idea of taking the hansel & gretel tale we’re all familiar with into adulthood,” renner, 42, said. “it’s 15 years later,” arterton, who just turned 27, adds. “and they’re not happy. They’ve become witch hunters.” in the 3-d “witch hunters,” the kids were taken into the woods and left on their own by their father. They stumble into a candycovered witch house, are taken prisoner and when they figure a way out of their fix — working as a team — they’ve found their calling. They’ll track, shoot, stab, behead and

Gemma Arterton plays Gretel and Jeremy Renner plays Hansel in “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters.” burn witches. whatever it takes. “you have to be very, very flexible” to play an action heroine, arterton said. she’s been in action films before: “clash of the titans,” “prince of persia,” “Quantum of solace.” but never where she had to carry the action. “i had to do quite a lot of training just to get limber enough to be gretel. you’ve got to get strong. you’ve got to look good in leather.” indeed. renner’s done his share of onscreen brawling, but playing hansel was “a little tricky, at first. it’s these tight outfits. but they’re wonderfully designed to not just look good, but be functional. so i figured it out.” playing siblings meant there’d be a different sort of onscreen chemistry called for, “that unspoken communication that brother and sister are supposed to have,” renner said.

Making an action fantasy meant that they’d be working in a world filled with things no real person has ever seen. and since that wasn’t to be manufactured digitally, “most of what you see is real — a real place, real witches in costume, a real troll,” he adds. “having an animatronic troll, instead of a digital one, was a real blessing on the set,” arterton said. There’s none of this look off camera in wonder at something they’ll digitally add later. and having ferrell & co. producing it meant there’d be laughs: anachronisms like ancient bavarian milk bottles with pictures of missing (kidnapped by witches) children, the odd blast of era-inappropriate profanity. “we had to keep focused on what was serious for us and what was serious for the audience,” renner said. “The jokes, they’ll come.

but we had to treat our relationship seriously for the audience to buy into it, i think.” “hansel & gretel: witch hunters” has piqued the interest of fanboys and girls on movie websites such as rottentomatoes. was it so much fun that they’ll do another, should the need arise? arterton was killed off as a bond character, and didn’t do the “clash of the titans” sequel, so she’s game. “This action heroine thing could open doors for me. we’ll see.” and renner, who might be called on to return to the bourne movies, and certainly will be back in the various “avengers” pictures (he’s hawkeye)? “studios are always thinking that. but for that to happen, we have to win over the audience and take them for a ride. They get to decide if she’s gretel and i’m hansel again.”

The French dip sandwich from Booyah Wings and Cafe.

rob young

kevin ryan’s french dip reappears at booyah

by rob young Special to The Post and Courier

if you go

ong live the french dip. and long live booyah wings and cafe, one of north charleston’s newest restaurants. back in an april lunch counter, we told you about JgJ’s and its famous french dip sandwich as concocted by kevin ryan, a veteran of north charleston area kitchens bestknown for his work at the old palmetto pub & brew house on ashley phosphate road. sadly, JgJ’s closed its doors, but ryan has moved on, or, more fittingly, moved over, to booyah as a co-owner. The restaurant sits just yards away from JgJ’s, taking up a corner nook of the piggly wiggly shop-

what: booyah wings and cafe where: 8780 rivers ave., suite 318, north charleston hours: 11 a.m.-8 p.m., monday-sunday for more info: 5535354


ping center on rivers avenue formerly occupied by the filipino cafe & bakery, booyah has been freshened up and decluttered; the restaurant’s presence bolstered by a large, electric blue stuffed toy bulldog keeping watch by the front door. as for ryan’s french dip ($8.99), it’s similar to his work at JgJ’s, the meat

hand-shaved, the melted provolone perfect, the roll a toasty golden brown and the au jus addictive. it’s so good it’s about the only item on the menu without a description — it really wouldn’t do it justice. of course, the wings also deserve consideration, available in numbers of six ($4.99) to 100 ($62.99), and in both wet and dry varieties with such flavors as roasted garlic and red pepper, spicy sweet chili, garlic butter and more typical choices like hot, ranch, barbecue and caribbean jerk. big half-pound specialty burgers ($6.49-$7.49), large salads ($5.49-$7.99), and reuben and club sandwiches ($7.99) also warrant mention, though it’s the french dip that keeps me coming back, no matter the location.

history served with modern touch at middleton middleton place restaurant

by deidre schipani Special to The Post and Courier


hould henry or arthur Middleton sit down at a table at Middleton place restaurant, they would experience a taste of home. okra, rice, field peas and pork are on the plantation menu. This restaurant was birthed by a Junior league project in 1928. in 1949, the league’s tea room overlooking the ashley river was moved to the current restaurant, which was built in 1933 as a guesthouse. w. bancel la farge designed it to complement the architecture of the 18th-century plantation main house. today, oil lanterns light your way to its charming garden entry. The smell of history perfumes the air, and there is a sense of sacred ground as gravel crunches under step and winter’s evening mists shroud the landscape.

lewis would be very pleased. former executive chef Micah garrison was a fine culinary custodian. he now has a new position at Middleton as director of food services. his former banquet chef, brandon buck, was promoted to executive chef late last summer. cheryl ackland joins buck’s team as sous chef. buck is a south carolina The space native who is self-taught in There is a williamsburg the kitchen. he has schooled tavern feel to the place, and, himself well under the yes, it even smells of the capable toques of donald passage of time.

The kitchen easily substituted a potato croquette with my order of ashley farms duck breast ($26) and its creamed spinach side was an example of balanced seasoning and quality ingredients. The menu tackles classic southern dishes and ingredients with a “dash of innovation.” lewis would approve. The wine list is limited but adequate. it is not only fairly priced, but also honestly poured.

a$ap rocky

LongLiveA$AP/Polo Grounds/RCA


when rapper a$ap rocky reportedly signed a $3 million deal in 2011, there obviously were more than a few folks watching him closely to see if the resulting music warranted such a lucrative deal. The resulting mixtape, “livelovea$ap,” silenced anyone critical of rocky’s skills. but when his latest effort, “longlivea$ap,” was delayed several times last year, rumors started

camper van beethoven

La Costa Perdida/429


before he fronted the popular ’90s band cracker, singer-songwriter david lowery did the same thing in the ’80s in camper van beethoven. while cvb rarely gets the props it deserves for basically helping create alternative/college rock along with acts like r.e.M. and The pixies, lowery’s first band nonetheless still has its own small but faithful group of fans that goes to see it. since reuniting in 1999 after nearly a decade

emerging that perhaps a$ap had used up all his a-list material on his debut. now that the sophomore release finally is available, we are able to hear that apparently rocky still has plenty of fuel left in his creative tank. and while he continually delves into the same misogynistic themes that 90 percent of rap artists seem to favor, once you get past that, you can begin to appreciate his smooth delivery. it also helps that a$ap brings in some impressive friends to guest on several tracks. santigold’s lovely vocals enhance “hell,”

of inactivity, cvb has released just two fulllength studio albums: 2004’s “new roman times” and a complete cover of the fleetwood Mac double album “tusk.” lowery frequently has mounted tours that feature both cvb and cracker, and that might explain why cvb’s latest studio effort, “la costa perdida,” sounds a lot like a cross between the two bands. to be fair, one always has been able to hear a bit of cvb in every cracker release, but tracks such as “come down the coast” and “northern california girls” would have sounded right at home on a cracker album like “The golden age.”

standout tracks on the new album include “prisoner’s song,” “burn” and “Jimmy collins’ wake.” particularly good is “rose tattoo,” which is sure to become a dropkick Murphys classic. The latter half of the album seems to lose a little steam, beginning after the inclusion of a christmas song, “The season’s upon us,” which is odd for an album with a January release. still, there’s enough good stuff here to make you hanker for a pint of guinness. key tracks: “prisoner’s song,” “rose tattoo,” “Jimmy collins’ wake”

while dJ sensation skrillex pumps up “wild for the night.” elsewhere on the album, standout tracks include “goldie” and “i come apart,” the latter of which features the otherworldly vocals of florence welch. it’s an ambitious hip-hop release from an artist who seems destined to separate himself from the current crop of cookie-cutter rap artists out there. key tracks: “goldie,” “hell,” “i come apart”

for longtime fans, though, the ones who came up listening to such cvb tunes as “take the skinheads bowling,” there are plenty of loose and semi-experimental tracks, including “someday our love will sell us out” and the minute-long “aged in wood.” The album also includes demos for four cvb songs as a bonus. key tracks: “come down the coast,” “some day our love will sell us out,” “la costa perdida” — by devin grant

oyster festival

event is ‘bigger and better’ as it hits 30 years

by rob young Special to The Post and Courier

if you go

The key to the lowcountry oyster festival’s longevity is simple: a love for oysters. a whole lotta love. sunday marks the 30th annual lowcountry oyster festival, hosted each year by the greater charleston restaurant association. The event, at boone hall plantation in Mount pleasant, also seems to function as a harbinger of the charleston festival season, concluding January with an enormous, ocean-size feast before making way for the southeastern wildlife exposition (feb. 15-17), bb&t charleston wine + food festival (feb. 28March 3), spoleto (May 24-June 9) and all points in between and beyond. organizers of the oyster festival expect about 11,000 people to attend. “it’s really gotten bigger and better each year,” restaurant association executive director kathy britzius said. britzius isn’t being biased, either. according to the association, the southeastern tourism society has hailed the oyster festival, billed as “the world’s largest oyster roast,” as one of the “top 20 events in the southeast” for the past 25 years. “it brings a number of people from out of town just to relax and enjoy the oyster festival,” britzius said.

what: 30th annual lowcountry oyster Festival when: 10:30 a.m.-5 p.m. sunday where: boone hall plantation, 1235 long point road, mount pleasant price: advance tickets are $12, day-of tickets are $15, kids 10 and under get in free; oysters are $10 a bucket (about 3 dozen). tickets are available on the greater charleston restaurant association website at www.charlestonrestaurant or can be purchased at any southcoast community bank, boone hall Farms and the mount pleasant and charleston visitor centers.

Oysters, and then some

The event also brings in a ton of oysters — about 40, actually, or 80,000 pounds. two tractor-trailers arrive the day prior to the festival, the rigs filled with single select oysters plucked

from texas waters. “everybody always asks why we don’t do local oysters,” britzius said. “well, we just don’t have that amount available.” and should steamed oysters not pique your appetite, festivalgoers also can enjoy fried oysters, various kinds of seafood, soup, hamburgers, gyros and desserts from a number of vendors. “folks should understand that we’ll have more food out here, not just oysters,” britzius said. a food court will be set up and will include a number of restaurants, three food trucks and sweet offerings. options include red’s ice house, Zeus grill and seafood, gilligan’s seafood restaurant, The windjammer, please see oysters, page e21

the diamonds by playing ace, king and a third round. When declarer won the diamond queen and played a heart, West climbed up with the heart ace and cashed out the diamonds for down one. Ducking the club might look like an instinctive play, but it was not one that was found at many other tables.

In one room, where the auction had petered out in two no-trump, declarer won the spade lead and cashed his other high spade to unblock the suit, before playing a club toward dummy — perhaps making the position easier to defend than was necessary. East made the critical play for the defense when he ducked this trick, won the next club, and cleared

Should couples live together sans ring?

back in time with saturday morning toons


by rebekah bradford Special to The Post and Courier


f you were one of those kids who spent every saturday morning in front of the television watching cartoons, this week’s head2head trivia should be a breeze. current champ ellen foy is facing off against student chad stevens.


1. what was the name of the cat from “the smurfs?” 2. what gave scooby-doo courage? 3. what was the name of the magician from “he-man?” 4. who was the villain that always tried to sabotage people in “wacky races?” 5. what was the name of Fred Flintstone’s boss? 6. what’s the name of rainbow bright’s horse? 7. what all-american wrestler went on to become a regular character on “g.i. Joe?” 8. on the cartoon “Jem,” what was the name of her band? 9. who was the arch enemy of the thundercats? 10. what was the name of the transformers’ home planet?

le/don pitts/ap

The late Henry Corden, one of the voices of Fred Flintstone, is shown with the cartoon character. How well do you know your Saturday morning cartoons?

ellen’s answers

1. this is the only one i may know. azrael. 2. some kind of treat. 3. oh, my gosh, i haven’t a clue. 4. i’ve never even heard of that cartoon. 5. i wish you’d asked for his (Fred Flintstone’s) wife’s name because that i knew. 6. i can’t even come up with a good enough guess. 7. hulk hogan 8. Jem’s backup band 9. the lightning dogs 10. pluto

conclusion sadly for ellen, who was so dominant in last week’s contest, this subject really didn’t suit her. it did, however, suit chad enough to give him the win and allow him to return next week for another round of head2head trivia.

chad’s answers

1. azrael 2. he gets some scooby snacks. 3. no clue man. 4. also no clue. 5. mr. stone or something like that. 6. starlite 7. wasn’t into “g.i. Joe.” 8. Jem and the holograms 9. mumm-ra 10. cybertron

correct answers 1. azrael 2. scooby snacks 3. orko 4. dick dastardly 5. mr. slate 6. starlite

7. sgt. slaughter 8. Jem and the holograms 9. mumm-ra 10. cybertron

ear abby: i am a woman in my early 20s and in my first serious relationship. i adore “paul.” we have a wonderful, respectful relationship. one day, i hope we’ll be married. i feel strongly that we should not live together before we are married. he disagrees. he feels couples need to know each other’s habits fully before they make a lifelong commitment. i understand the financial and emotional convenience of sharing a home with your loved one. however, i believe that marriage changes a living dynamic whether you have lived together or not. conflicts that arise postmarriage can be faced with a greater sense of resolve, knowing that a formal commitment has been made. should couples live together before marriage? i don’t want to be stubborn and say i’ll never live with anyone before getting married, because i know it’s a very common thing to do. what can i say to paul and friends who disagree with me to defend my “old-fashioned” logic? — traditionalist in chicago DEAR TRADITIONALIST: I don’t think you should argue with them on the subject at all. Just say that although many couples live together today without marriage, you aren’t com-

dear abby fortable with it. You are not the only person who feels this way. Many people with strong religious convictions feel the way you do about it. This is something that couples should work out between themselves. dear abby: i am a woman who was raised in the south by a very proper mother. she told me that a man should never give a woman “intimate” gifts like lingerie. a friend and i have argued about whether this “rule” applies today. i still believe the practice is unacceptable even if you are engaged. she thinks it is ok. — confused in oregon DEAR CONFUSED: Perhaps the two of you should agree to disagree on this one. Your mother is part of the “hands off” generation, and the logic was that knowing lingerie sizes was “too intimate” for couples who weren’t married. In today’s world, however, such logic would put companies like La Perla and Victoria’s Secret out of business.
