Chris and Drew will have a great place and all the local pilots can hardly wait. Buy the 17th you think???

I'm super stoked! Might I suggest stocking some local Verve coffee (c'mon, all the hip SC county eateries are doing it) to go along with that Gizdich pie?

OK, it's way past the end of June, is this place open yet? Have I missed something?

Talked to Andrew yesterday. He's hopeful that Props will open Monday. (Waiting on a few city inspections.) There's also a Chamber of Commerce mixer scheduled for Props on Aug. 30 -- a great chance to sample the food for free!

So glad to have a local eatery again; we have missed Zunigas because of the awesome staff. I hear some of them are hired at Props; Jesus, Kristin, Maria.... going tomorrow night.
