Happening Around Town

By the first of July, summer in Charleston is in full swing, and jazz, and honky-tonk…well, you catch my drift! The city is blessed with terrific local talent in the form of musicians, artists, and various crafts. Two wonderfully unique restaurants, Bridge Road Bistro and Bluegrass Kitchen is the venue for amazing performances every week. The Downtown Artwalk, on the third Thursday of every month, involves several different venues with original art from throughout the community. And the Downtown Streetfest is always a party you won’t want to miss. The hugely popular weekly Friday night event, “Live on the Levee” continues attracting thousands of concert-goers enjoying the FREE concerts at Haddad Riverfront Park. Charleston is front and center in the soccer world this summer, as the “2019 U.S. Youth Soccer Eastern Regional Championships” take place at the newly constructed Shawnee Sports Complex. Families from all over the country will converge on our city to participate in the tournaments. Other athletic events include the weekly “Charleston WV Parkrun” every Saturday at Magic Island and the 4th of July “Freedom Race (American Eagle)” at Capitol Market. The 2019 international beauty pageant circuit comes to Charleston

as Mrs. International, Miss International, Miss Teen International, and Miss Pre-Teen International contests take place in several different venues throughout town. “CharCon 2019” is a massive gaming championship taking over the Clay Center July 12-14. Every aspect of gaming, including board games, cosplay panels, and role-playing games (just to name a few) will be available for the entire family to enjoy. While celebrating its 3rd year at the Clay Center, many people make it a tradition not to be missed! Another international event, “24th World Scout Jamboree” unites over 45,000 Scouts and Scouters from over 165 countries promoting peace, mutual understanding, and respect while participating in activities and unique cultural experiences. The Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve is about one hour away from town, but thousands will be flying into Yeager Airport. That means thousands will be dining, shopping, and touring our beautiful city on their way to the Reserve. It appears that June’s FestivALL was only the beginning to an amazing and extremely cool summer in Charley-West!

Looking Back

By: M. Lynne Squires

...at Scottish Rite Temple

Well over a century ago, the Army rode on horses instead of in Hummers. Supply wagons were powered with mules instead of diesels. And in the heart of downtown Charleston, an Armory was constructed on Capitol Street to house these animals. After the Army and their animals vacated the premises, a skating rink rolled in. Now, nearly 100 years ago, the structure was purchased by the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonary and the Ancient and Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine. The Temple of Scottish Rite’s original home was on the corner of Dickenson and Washington Streets. It originally housed the Southern Methodist Church, and was purchased from the church by the Scottish Rite in 1916. The two orders came together to purchase the Capitol Street building in 1921. After the Shrine moved to their new headquarters on Quarrier Street, the Scottish Rite became the sole owner of the building. Although a formidable structure, it sits rather unobtrusively on the northern end of Capitol Street. Designed by architect H. Rus Warne, it was constructed by the Charleston Auditorium Company. He also designed the original Coyle and Richardson building on the corner of Capitol and Lee streets. Warne, a Parkersburg native, established a partnership with Charles G. Rabenstein and established a firm in 1902. After Warne’s retirement, the firm was continued by C. E. Silling. Today, Silling and Associates is the oldest firm in West Virginia, and one of the oldest continuously operating architectural firms in the Eastern United States. Three stories high, the Temple is constructed of red brick. Squires’ new book Looking Back at Charleston is a compilation of 24 essays and color photos from her column and is available on Amazon. Visit www.mlynne.com.

The Capitol Street facade is symmetrical with repeating motifs. Eight windows with transoms are divided on either side of a central entrance. Classic milk glass shaded lamps are on either side of the main entrance. The Scottish Rite eagle in bronze perches above the door. Tall, narrow windows encircle the second floor, but are now bricked in. Roman arches grace the top story. The Capitol Street side of the building is taller than the barrel-roofed eastern side. After a horrendous fire in 1921 razed the nearby state Capitol building, the Temple building housed several state agencies until a new Capitol could be constructed. Having one of the only auditoriums in Charleston for years, the Scottish Rite building hosted many events by community groups over the years. More than 3 dozen not-for-profit groups have met or held events there. In more recent years, the Shrine leadership has provided space for various artists and artistic groups to create. Bernie Weipper, a Charleston artist, maintained his studio there for years. Ballet dancers graced their stage, and the Charleston instrumental groups performed there. The Scottish Shrine Temple is on the National Register of Historic Places as part of the Downtown Charleston Historic District. Comprised of dozens of buildings, the Temple is a gem in the city’s historic district crown.

Next month, although school is out for the summer, Looking Back goes to Garnet High School.

We’re continually on the hunt for experiences that add richness to our lives. In the spirit of the revival of road trips, we are proud to feature a monthly section featuring destinations within driving distance of Charleston. We feel that our smart and savvy readers will find these trips interesting and entertaining.

Charlotte, NC

Driving four hours South of Charleston, West Virginia brings you to Charlotte, North Carolina. Charlotte is a multi-cultural city with international flair, professional sports teams, and a fantastic culinary scene. Anything and everything you’d ever want to do can found right here. Here are my recommendations to make your weekend getaway in Charlotte one to remember!

WHAT TO SEE & DO IN CHARLOTTE, NC Take in a Charlotte Knights minor league baseball game at the BB&T Ballpark or ride the rapids at the US National Whitewater Center, also great for hiking, mountain biking, and outdoor concerts. TopGolf is another fun attraction where anyone can play golf no matter their skill level. If you are traveling with kids, Carowinds theme park and Discovery Place Science (a hands-on science center with an IMAX theater) will be at the top of their to do list. Bring a swimsuit, too, 24 CharlestonHomeandLiving.com | JULY 2019 024.719.indd 2

Weeke

Tr

By: Melody Pittman

because Carowinds has amazing water rides in addition to the 60+ rides, shows, and attractions. Charlie Brown and his friends at Camp Snoopy are the hosts of the kids’ area. Art lovers should check out the Mint Museum and Bechtler Museum of Modern Art (mid 20th century art) or take in a live performance at the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center. Upcoming shows include Betty Buckley in Hello Dolly, Frankie Valli and the 4 Seasons, and Shrek the Musical. Quench your thirst with a coffee, French press, Italian soda, or tea from Central Coffee, serving Joe Van Gogh local artisan coffee. Try a beer tasting at one of Charlotte’s best breweries such as Heist, Sycamore, and Olde Mecklenburg. Charlotte offers a lot of shopping--some of the best on the East coast. From vintage stores to luxury department stores, there are amazing finds in Queen City, which Charlotte is commonly referred to as. SouthPark Mall and Carolina Place Mall are two of the best known retail complexes, where Concord Mills and the Charlotte Premium

Central Coffee

Outlets have a combined 300 discount stores including Vera Bradley, Brooks Brothers, Coach, Puma, and Lindt.

Three special attractions unique to Charlotte are the Billy Graham Library, NASCAR Hall of Fame, and the Carolina Raptor Center.

beat. Amélie’s goodies were even featured in the train scene of The Hunger Gamesmovie.

WHERE TO STAY IN CHARLOTTE

Traveler

WHERE TO EAT IN CHARLOTTE

Three Amigos

Mexican food lovers will want to try everything at Three Amigos, best known for tasty margaritas and delicious gorditas. Southern BBQ and all of

A recommended option for hotels in Charlotte is the swanky Hampton Inn & Suites at South Park. It is doubtful you’ve ever seen a Hampton as high-end as this one, with a player piano in the gorgeous lobby. Rooms feature kitchenettes, wonderfully comfortable beds, and luxury linens. It is within walking distance to Phillips Place, has an outdoor swimming pool, and free Wifi.

Nascar Hall of Fame

There are over 2,000 restaurants in Charlotte so any and every craving can easily be satisfied. The best cheap eats are pupusas (corn tortillas stuffed with meat and cheese) and fried plantains from El Pulgarcito de America and Chevaps (Bosnian flatbread with sausage and homemade butter/ pepper spread) at Euro Grille & Cafe.

Upstream Restaurant

Holiday Inn

the tempting side dishes are appetizing at City Barbecue, where you can have all your favorites including pulled pork or chicken, beef brisket, sausage, and turkey breast.

In Uptown Charlotte (which is actually the downtown area), relax in luxury at the Le Meridien, with a fabulous roof-top bar and within walking distance of many popular attractions.

Going to Charlotte for a special occasion? I recommend the amazon seafood from Upstream at Phillips Place. If you feel like splurging, opt for the chef’s tasting (omakase).

Le Meridien Hotel

For a resort experience, spend the weekend at Ballantyne, with premier Southern hospitality and the height of luxury. Here, you can escape to the golf course, pool, tennis courts, or heavenly spa.

Bosnian Food

CHARLOTTE DELIVERS FUN AND THEN SOME Manolo’s

Charlotte, North Carolina is packed with fun adventures just waiting to be had! From the many diverse neighborhoods to its high-end shopping, family-friendly fun to unique attractions, Charlotte is a city you’ll want to visit again and again.

Satisfy your sweet tooth at Manolo’s Bakery, a Latin-inspired bakery with pastries, breads, cakes, and cookies from Peru, Cuba, Colombia, Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic. Manolo’s also falls into the cheap eats category with mouthwatering tamales, empanadas, and croquettes that should not be missed. For Frenchstyle pastries, Amélie’s French Bakery cannot be Pupusas and Plantains
