In today's Daily Mail there is a story about the August 1 opening of "Pies and Pints" on Capitol Street. I wish them well. We need more downtown evening dining spots in Charleston.
I hope that August 1 is a realistic date, that building has a LOT of problems. It is a very bad thing when an eatery advertises an opening date and then misses it. It makes people lose enthusiasm and become disinterested or even somewhat disdainful.
And speaking of delayed opening, Moxxee Coffee is showing signs of life again. It looks like they have hired Pray Construction. This is a good move: Pray is expensive but they know how to finish projects. Who knows? Maybe - just maybe -we'll be able to warm up with a hot cup of Moxxee coffee sometime this winter. But I'm not getting my hopes up.
Oh, and one more piece of news on East End openings: "Frutcake" is now open in the former location of Delish Express. If anyone has tried it fell free to leave a comment/review.
