Trip Report (Charleston)

My wife and I were in Charleston for the PGA Championship this past August and F.I.G. was amazing. My wife and I were split between which was better, F.I.G. or Husk... she preferred F.I.G. and I preferred Husk by a slim margin.

Can't wait to get back down there.

Charlotte dinner on a monday night

you have to eat early at 5Church to beat the crowd if you don't like the noise.

Though for a Sunday I highly recommend their brunch!

Philly Hound Looking for Good Beer and Grub in Downtown Charlotte

Take the light rail south a couple of stops and try The Liberty. Always a great beer selection and the food is pretty good too in my opinion.

Need Recs from Wynn afficionados

I really enjoy The Country Club for lunch. We also we really enjoy Society Cafe. The only other restaurant we have been to at Wynn/Encore was Switch and it was just ok. The restaurant "switching" was kind of cool but the food was pretty generic.

I don't drink coffee but I can't function without my morning Dr Pepper.

Charlotte Hounds

my only beef with Customshop is they are sooooo slow. Food was really, really great but for what we ordered it should have been an hour and a half meal from sit down to out the door. We were there for almost 4 hours. I don't know if that particular night they were short staffed or what but it was not busy (only 5 tables were occupied) and in fact, one of those tables got up and left because it was taking so long. On the way out he told the guy running the front of the house that this was the 3rd time they had been in and service had been slow every time and they would not be back.

I would definitely go back because the food was great (and they served up one of the best whiskey sours I've ever had!) but only if time is not a factor.

Brand Steakhouse at the Monte Carlo- Anybody know about it?

we ate their late night on time during our trip last year and it was great. it is right off the casino but we could care less about the view. we didn't notice the smell of smoke coming in from the casino either. is it better than say CUT or some place like that, no, but if you are staying at Monte Carlo or next door it is a great option

My favorite in Vegas for lunch is The Country Club at the Wynn. I always get the open face french dip.

Mediterrean in Vegas

Wolf Brand Chili Clone

I like how every time someone mentions Wolf Brand Chili, STPP is brought up like it is the only food in the world that contains it... what about all the other foods that have STPP in it? preservatives are used in A LOT of foods, especially canned.
