Ex-Reality TV Star To Open Shop On King Street

So many so-called reality TV "stars" are not exactly...well, stars.  It reminds us of a quote attributed to Andy Warhol: "In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes". 

In today's media environment, so many of these stars are supernovas that burn bright and extinguish in seconds. 

Not so, Kristin Cavallari. She's a reality TV O.G. who first rose to fame on MTV in 2004. 

Cavallari founded Uncommon James in Nashville in 2017, and will open a shop at 309 King Street in the Fall.  Sharp observers will recall this as the former site of Mellow Mushroom.


New Restaurant Named Frank & Jack's On Ira To Open in Mount Pleasant

An entrepreneur named Damon Navarro is asking the town to annex a 1.51-acre tract on Ira Road between Abide A While Garden Center and Life Storage off U.S. Highway 17 at Interstate 526, where the new dining venture is planned.

This ain't just a restaurant, though.  It sounds like a MAJOR undertaking that will result in quite the destination when completed.


Heavy’s Turns It Up Loud With ‘Barburgers’ & Margaritas

We've heard good things about the new restaurant that replaced Tattooed Moose" on Morrison Street downtown.

Heavy’s Barburger is the latest project from long-time Charleston restaurateurs John and Brenda Haire, who were previously the local owner/operators of two Jim ’N Nick’s Bar-B-Que outlets before becoming partners in the Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint organization when it opened its first Charleston location in 2018


New Starbucks Coming To Mount Pleasant

It pains me to promote this.  I think there are SO many great locally-owned coffee shops with far better offerings than Starbucks.

But I know some of y'all like the Green Mermaid.  

A developer wants to build a Starbucks cafe and adjoining office space on a vacant lot at Bowman Road and Hospital Drive.

A drive-thru would not be included in the one-story structure of about 6,000 square feet.


‘Southern Charm’ Star Favorite Palace Hotel Reopens in Charleston

A self-described "dive" has moved to a new spot on the peninsula.  Palace Hotel moved to a freestanding building at 525 Meeting Street.

And the fact that Southern Charm's Shep is a regular is gonna make us rush right there. 😜
