I call Upper King Street my home now. As a full-time bicyclist, people often ask me how I get by without a car. It’s easy, actually. Everything I need is around me because I’ve come to realize the importance of shopping local. There’s a sense of community, love and support I feel whenever I explore what local businesses have to offer. Local business owners are people who have invested in our city and are following their dreams. That’s admirable.

Paddleboarders hit Shem Creek for ‘shootout’


f you were anywhere near the water in Charleston last weekend, you likely saw someone paddleboarding. The popular activity involves standing on a board, which is longer and heftier than most longboards, and paddling. Paddleboarding combines adventure with a great cardiovascular and core workout and is surprisingly easy to pick up if conditions are calm. For many enthusiasts, the activity has turned into a competitive sport. Besides regularly scheduled competitions and organized paddles, the Cooper River Bridge Run of stand-up paddleboarding in Charleston arrives this weekend with the second annual Shem Creek SUP Shootout in Mount Pleasant. The three-day event is being held by one of the biggest local promoters of paddleboarding, Charleston Watersport Outfitters, since the sport fledged in the area a half dozen years ago. The event kicks off Friday with a stand-up paddleboard demo 4:30-7 p.m. at one of the launching hubs of the sport: the beach at Station 30 on Sullivan’s Island. A registration party will be 6-9 p.m. Friday at the unofficial paddleboarding pub, Red’s Ice House on Shem Creek, where participants can register ($50), pick up bibs and general information.

HORRIBLE BOSSES (R): We’ve all had them. We’ve all had to suffer their indignities, or else just quit our jobs. But three friends (Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day) come up with an alternative to dealing with their monstrous bosses (Kevin Spacey, Colin Farrell and Jennifer Aniston) with the help of an ex-con (Jamie Foxx). ZOOKEEPER (PG): When an animal-loving caretaker (Kevin James) realizes he’s more comfortable in the company of a lion than that of a woman, he decides he must make a career change and quits his beloved job. But the animals at the zoo (voiced by Cher, Adam Sandler, Nick Nolte and Sylvester Stallone) try to get him to change his mind by teaching him the ways of courtship, jungle style.

uneducated, because Day is a graduate of Merrimack College, studied acting with Massachusetts’ Williamstown Theater Festival, and his parents, a professor and a music teacher, both have Ph.D.s in musicology. “Perhaps a lot of that comes out of my own fear and insecurities of my own CHARLES SYKES/AP intelligence,” says Day. “BeCharlie Day stars in the new comedy “Horrible Bosses” ing in such a well-educated family, perhaps I was always alongside Jason Bateman and Jason Sudeikis as a nervous about that. So it was trio of friends who plot to murder their variously good to make light of that in oppressive managers. the show.” He waits a beat, and then adds: “I can read.” Day bears some of his parents’ musical talent, which he’s occasionally exploited by writing songs on “Sunny,” such as the beloved “Nightman,” a nonsensical tune that sparked an actual touring theater show in 2009 called “The Nightman Cometh.” As “Sunny” has grown and continued (it recently wrapped its seventh season, to premiere this fall) the fortunes of its three principals have grown, but none more JOHN P.

Day. “Rob, Glenn and myself are probably three of the most opinionated men you’ll ever meet on the set. We’re not phoning it in when it comes to that show. Whether it’s a script or a prop or whatever it is, we have opinions and we really believe in affecting the production as a whole. So it’s very difficult to then hand all that over to other people.” He adds: “Once I really let go, it was relaxing.” Sudeikis also co-starred with Day in “Going the Distance” and made a guest appearance on last season’s “Sunny.” He’s gotten to see up close Day’s propensity to get riled up in high-pitched, rapid-fire fury. Sudeikis calls his humor “hilarious hostility.” “He’s already got a funny take on the world and when you give him an emotion to ride out, he cracks me up,” says Sudeikis. “He’s very genuine as a person and therefore as an actor.” That earnestness is one reason why audiences tend to root for Day, however despicable his schemes. “I don’t think the characters in ‘Sunny’ would ever go as far as to actually attempt to have someone murdered, even though they might seem more extreme,” says Day. “They’d come up with something more clever.”

Special to The Post and Courier


wned by husband and wife, Nigel and Louise Drayton, Nigel’s Good Food aims to offer “just what your soul needs.” Set in the former La Nortena on Ashley Phosphate Road, the pair’s restaurant and full-service bar makes one heckuva pitch. The menu is full of comfort cuisine. Take a peek, shall we? The chopped Ol’ Skool Steak ($9.95) has onions, bell peppers and gravy, and two sides, while the Big Country Rib-eye ($19.95) is enough for two. The appetizers mix in familiar Lowcountry main-

Take your pick: fried chicken, stewed chicken, countryfried pork chops, smothered pork chops, barbecue ribs or turkey wings, each served with three sides. The fried chicken, at least, is a generously portioned bird. Not overly salted, it’s breaded lightly for an airy crust. Good stuff. As for the three in the Meat & Three, pick from leafy collard greens, grits, red rice, fried cabbage, thick okra soup, macaroni and cheese, lima beans (served in a cup akin to soup) and more. Other selections include Nigel’s award-winning

The Roti Rolls food truck serves locals at a recent event. Saturday’s family-friendly Food Truck Rodeo is coming to James Island for the first time.

Food on the go Saturday


Special to The Post and Courier


ot every occasion calls for a sit-down restaurant. Sometimes, we feel more like eating off a paper plate while casually mingling and listening to outdoor music. If that sounds more like your speed, visit this weekend’s Food Truck Rodeo at the Brick House on James Island. The Charleston Food Truck Federation is made up of a group of food trucks, which are basically restaurants on wheels. The trucks visit all parts of the Lowcountry to bring their own cuisine to different events. This is the fourth rodeo; others have been held downtown and in North

Charleston. “Most of the truck owners have similar personalities,” says Ambergre Sloane of the Diggity Doughnuts and the Little Blue Brunch Trucks. “We wanted to associate with all the cool events in the city, and we wanted to be our own bosses!” Sloane had been making homemade doughnuts for a few years when she started her doughnut truck. “I wanted to break the doughnut stereotype” she laughs. “They’re still a treat of course, but these are allnatural, made with whole grains.” Desmond Brown of the Geechee Island Truck uses time-tested family recipes to make his signature dishes. “We do a lot of stews, rice, grilled meats, and we try to keep the food very authentic,” he explains. “This is what our mothers and our grandmothers made. They’re family recipes that I

In fact, Mathus’ solo work is some of his grittiest and most provoking blues work yet. After building a name for himself with the Squirrel Jimbo Mathus and The Tri-State Coalition.

The 3 Dudes play hard Young, up-and-coming local rockers defy Disney-pop expectations


Special to The Post and Courier


hey say you should write what you know, and Roger Ploch knows about playing rough. Like the time he attempted a backflip off a bike ramp. Or the time he accidentally brought down a zipline before his dad had a chance to tighten the cord. “It was like this: ‘Yeeeooowwwrrrr, PSSSSH!” says Roger, 12, drummer in the band The 3 Dudes. Mishaps like these were the inspiration for a song called “Bam Bam” that he plays with twin brother Jack and younger brother Sam, 10. The song echoes The Ramones’ “Blitzkrieg Bop” and Don Henley’s “Boys of Summer,” minus the adult yearning for simpler times: “Water fights till night,/ Bottle rockets when we’re done,/Mom yells, ‘Come inside,’/But we’re having too much fun.” The Dudes like their music loud. You can hear frontman Jack’s classicrock guitar solos from the driveway to their Sullivan’s Island home. Upstairs in the practice room, they hammer away at their songs five days a week, putting in more hours than most youths put into sports at their age. Their lyrics are personal and homemade. The song “Gotta Have Nerve,” for example, started at the dinner table. Bassist Sam was complaining about a girl who’d been picking on him at school, and one of his brothers told him he should stand up to her. “You’ve got to have nerve,” he said. That’s when their dad, Nelson Ploch, chimed in: “Tell me more.”

upcoming shows

JULY 13: 2 p.m. at St. Andrews Branch Library, 1735 N. Woodmere Drive. JULY 26: 10:30 a.m. at the Charleston County Main Library, 68 Calhoun St.

The conversation sparked that song as well as another, “I Don’t Know,” a lament with universal appeal for boys of every age. “I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know about girls,” Roger sings. “Hard to understand,/Might be hot or cold.” Dad helps out on the lyrics, and local artist Sadler Vaden works with the Dudes on the music. The lead guitarist and vocalist for Charleston rock band Leslie met Nelson Ploch at a show while Ploch was searching for a rock-’n’roll mentor of sorts for the boys. Their mother, Samantha Ploch, wasn’t too sure about the then-unshaven rocker when he first showed up in the practice room. “He came in looking like Grizzly Adams,” she says. “I was very cautious because I thought, ‘Who’s this guy coming into our home?’ ” Since then, Vaden has gotten a trim, and the partnership has been working. Vaden says he doesn’t want the Dudes to come across as a gimmick band, and he’s worked with them to build a sound reminiscent of the Offspring and White Stripes. The boys themselves aren’t certain how to categorize their music. “Is there such a thing as smooth rock or soft rock?” asks Sam, struggling to find


The 3 Dudes’ new album is called “Bam Bam.” Find out more about the Charleston band at a category. “You guys are neither smooth nor soft rock,” Vaden assures him, leaning back in a computer chair in the practice room. They rock hard, in fact. Not fans of the Jonas Brothers’ sound, they’re liable to cover Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” Cream’s “Sunshine of Your Love” and Jimi Hendrix’s “Purple Haze” in live shows. Looking forward a few years, Jack says he’d like to do a nationwide tour, but he glances hesitantly at his mom to see what she thinks. She does not appear to disapprove. Sam has a simple goal: “We want to inspire people, make people feel good about themselves.”

he fireworks have subsided (except for that random pop or two that those 14-year-olds down the street saved up), but Charlestonians keep celebrating. There’s nothing this town loves more than the combination of art and food, except perhaps the combination of art, food, and helping others. July 15 is the date for the Charleston Fine Art Dealers’ Association’s annual Palette and Palate Stroll. The CFADA pairs several galleries with restaurants in downtown Charleston. The pairings include: Charleston Renaissance Gallery and Circa 1886; Corrigan Gallery and Cypress; Ella Richardson Fine Art and Blu; Horton Hayes Fine Art and La Fourchette; John Doyle Art Gallery and Caviar & Bananas; Martin Gallery and Social; Robert Lange Studios and Charleston Grill; Smith Killian Fine Art and McCrady’s; and The Sylvan Gallery and Halls Chophouse. This event is always a lot of fun as you can stroll from gallery to gallery tasting all kinds of treats from the various restaurants. The event is 5:30-7:30 p.m. The stroll often sells out and reservations are highly recommended.

Local jewelry maker enjoys being her own boss BY VIKKI MATSIS

Special to The Post and Courier


eghan McKay traveled the world for 6½ years with the money she earned selling jewelry along the way. To avoid using her savings, McKay would set up a table and sell wherever she happened to be: the market, the beach, festival or concerts. In 2004, McKay began to work with silver, and while backpacking through Central and South America, she would teach workshops and sell her pieces. McKay incorporates macrame (a type of weaving with string), encrustations that involve laying stone in natural bases such as wood, metal wraps with stones, and invisible wax castings. Materials often include seeds, bone, shells, coral, leather, copper and silver for her one-of-a-kind pieces. Her materials and finished products all have a story behind them; McKay views her work as a timeline of her life and travels. McKay is now the curator for the Social Wine Bar Starving Artists Series that is held the first Wednesday of every month. “I do not miss the cubicle. I love being my own boss and doing something I love,” McKay said. “The next time you need to buy a present for yourself or a loved one, do not buy manufactured items. Buy something handmade by a local artist and support your community.” NEXT EVENTS: 10 a.m.-11 p.m. Saturday, Brick House


At left, Meghan McKay models her jewelry. See her work Saturday at the Brick House Kitchen.


Kitchen, 1575 Folly Road, free. Every Wednesday at the Pour House Starving Artists Market, 5-9 p.m., free. Sol Fest, July 29-30, Windjammer, 1008 Ocean Blvd., Mount Pleasant. FIRST THING I DO IN THE MORNING: Read my calendar quote of the day from Yogi Bhajan and do a small yoga set followed with a cup of tea and NPR. BEST MISTAKE I EVER MADE: Quit my office job and started traveling. I’M DAYDREAMING ABOUT: EPIC, Environmental Political Innovation Center. I AM MOST GRATEFUL FOR:

My family. MY WORST FEAR IS: That my children will lack the pleasure of life that I have enjoyed due to constant constraints and degradation of the environment. IF I HAD THREE WISHES, THEY WOULD BE: No nuclear, no mountaintop removal and equal education rights with more investments in education across the USA. MY FAMILY SAYS I AM: A gypsy. PRICE RANGE OF ARTWORK: $8-$70. WEBSITE: www.facebook. com/silverrosejewelry.

More games at postand courier. com/ games. In today’s deal from the Dyspeptics Club, South found himself declarer in a respectable spade slam. Following his usual principle of not giving any deal much thought until he needed to defend himself in the postmortem, he won the club lead, drew trump ending in dummy, then took the heart finesse. He wontheheartreturnandcrossed to hand with a club to try the Chinese finesse in diamonds by leading the queen. It was easy for West to cover this, and down went the contract. South apologized to his partner, claiming that all the cards were poorly placed, but North unsympathetically remarked that the only wrong thing about the hand was South’s thinking.

What South should have done? South should have won the opening lead, drawn two rounds of trump, and cashed all the clubs. At this point, rather than just relying on the heart finesse, he plays the diamond ace followed by a low diamond to put the defenders on lead. If it is West who has the diamond king, he will have no choice but to give a ruff-sluff or lead into the heart tenace. If East has the diamond king, he must lead a heart now, and declarer is noworseoffthanbefore,sincehe can take the heart finesse for the contract. This line of play turns a 50 percent contract into one that needs either red king properly positioned — in other words, a 75 percent chance. © United Feature Syndicate

Proposal ceremony baffles

Fit for a princess



Special to The Post and Courier

This week Head2Head’s got royalty on the brain. There’s the visit to Canada by Prince William and his wife, Kate; what would have been Princess Diana’s 50th birthday; and the royal wedding in Monaco. It should be pretty easy to guess what this week’s trivia theme is going to be. Champ Seth Foster is taking on Helen Gillespie, an administrative assistant. Princess Diana supporter John Loughrey, 56, from London has “Diana 50” written on his face outside Kensington Palace in London on Friday, which would have been her 50th birthday.


EAR ABBY: Has the marriage proposal become an invited ceremony like the wedding, or am I out of touch? A few months ago friends and family were invited to a beach near Seattle for the proposal. Our grandson and his live-in went for a short seaplane ride. The plane returned, beached and the couple got out. Then, surrounded by the throng on the sand, and videotaped, our grandson proposed on bended knee and she, of course, accepted. Because we did not attend, my daughter is still not speaking to us. The young couple will fly to Maui in a few months for the wedding. We are among the invited, but the trip is too much for us. Your comments, please. — BAFFLED IN BRUNS-

DEAR ABBY WICK, MAINE DEAR BAFFLED: I have heard of brides getting carried away and turning their wedding ceremony into the equivalent of a stage production, but this is the first time I have heard about a mother of the groom issuing a command performance for the proposal. Heaven only knows what she’s planning for the birth of their first child. Write Dear Abby at www. or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

QUESTIONS 1. Who’s the only monarch to rule longer than Elizabeth II? 2. How many times has the Queen visited Canada? 3. What year was the name Windsor adopted as the royal surname? 4. How many Queen Catherines have there been? 5. The 1701 Act of Settlement prohibited the monarch from doing what? 6. Whose royal wedding in 1960 was the first to be televised? 7. Who was Prince Albert II of Monaco’s mother? 8. What are people from Monaco called? 9. The new Princess of Monaco was an Olympic athlete in what sport? 10. The House of Grimaldi has ruled Monaco since when?

SETH’S ANSWERS 1. Victoria. 2. 16. 3. 1945. 4. Two. 5. Ruling without parliament? 6. The Queen’s daughter. 7. That actress who was in “Rear Window.” 8. Monacans. 9. Equestrian. 10. 1867.

CONCLUSION Head2Head trivia has an upset this week as Foster get trounced by newcomer Gillespie, even if it was a lowscoring competition. All that matters is that Gillespie is the new Head2Head trivia champion and will return in a week to take on a new opponent.

SHELLEY’S ANSWERS 1. Elizabeth the First. 2. 20. 3. 1900. 4. Six. 5. Choosing their own spouse. 6. Princess Margaret. 7. Grace Kelly. 8. Monacoans? 9. Swimming. 10. 17th century.

CORRECT ANSWERS 1. Queen Victoria. 5. Marrying a Roman 2. 22. Catholic. 3. 1917. 6. Princess Margaret. 4. Five: Catherine of Valois, 7. Grace Kelly. Catherine of Aragon, Cathe- 8. Monegasques. rine Howard, Katherine Parr 9. Swimming. and Catherine of Braganza. 10. 1297.
