New bar passes on alcohol, serves up naturally mellow drinks

A new bar has recently opened on Wade Hampton Boulevard, but this bar doesn’t sell alcohol. Instead, it features a drink native to the South Pacific – kava.

“Under-promise, over-deliver.” I live by this saying. You’re always going to be a hero when you blow away expectations. (Never mind the fact you’re usually the one setting those expectations at an all-time low.)

Cold Day, Hot Pot

Hot pot is a humble dish. It has no pretenses. It’s exactly what it sounds like: a hot pot. I’m at Mekong Restaurant on a blustery, gray fall day – it’s not quite cold enough to warrant a chili or stew, which incidentally means the perfect conditions for hot pot.
