This sign has become something of a modern-day legend in the South Carolina Lowcountry: A land where bar be cue is religion.
Owner and founder of Fiery Ron’s Home Team BBQ, Aaron Siegel, did not intend on becoming a barbeque restaurant owner. In fact, the well trained chef studied at the University of Georgia and then went on to train at the Culinary Institute of America where he specialized in high end cuisine. He then became a chef at Pinions in Aspen, Colorado and later a French bistro called Cache Cache, all the while Aaron would dabble in barbequing at home and with friends. During his time at Pinions, Aaron also worked at a burrito joint and the idea of quick service imbedded itself in his mind. Missing home yet not wanting to join the rat race that is the Atlanta scene, Aaron opted to come to familiar Charleston and settled in as the executive chef for the restaurant Blossom.
But, once an addict, always an addict.

On this day in 1984, Ronald Reagan proclaimed it to be National Icecream Day.
Grab a scoop!
Zeroll Ice Cream Scoops and Spades have been made in America since 1935, and are on display in the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent design collection. The unique design allows the heat from the scooper’s hand to travel to the scoop, defrosting the ice cream. With no breakable parts, the scoop allows the scooper to roll the ice cream in a neat ball, generating 10 to 20 percent more ice cream - the appeal during the Great Depression.

Grilled asparagus gnocchi (sans shrimp).
From the moment you walk into Vivace, you know that this isn’t your average Italian restaurant. Guests perk up pretty quickly when they get their first hint of sizzling garlic mixed with the scent of freshly braised pork rib. If you had the opportunity to peek into the kitchen, you would see hands quickly kneading dough to roll out for the next batch of bread. Peer to the other side and you will see the final slices of tomatoes being dropped into another batch of marinade that is set to begin roasting in the oven in a few short hours.
