Here are some of your answers via our Facebook page:

“Red Prime” —Erin Elizabeth Ames

“Well, if it's not in a corrugated aluminum building.” —Joe Nathan Stovall

“Matthew Kenney!” —Samantha Renee Ruble

“Cafe 501 Classen Curve” —Michelle Smith Ponder

“Whether or not you can carry on a conversation. Charleston's is good; Republic is deafening.” —Jeanmarie Nielsen

“Firs thing I notice, where are the TVs and how can I get away from them. Second thing I notice, where is the bar area, and how can I get away from it?” —Red McCall

Your indulgently flavored meal doesn’t have to be a splurge when it comes to counting calories. Besides, with the upcoming heat, fresh and lighter dishes are more appealing. If you’re adding in the greens, don’t assume that means you’ll be opting for blasé.
