TGIF, readers. We've reached the end of the week which means we have a few remaining morsels of food news to share. The first, Chick's Fry House is now in the hot chicken business. This past Tuesday the restaurant launched its first weekly hot chicken service and chef Robert Stehling says next week the chicken is going to be even hotter.

"Nobody's face melted so we want to up our game next week," says the chef. Stehling's recipe is an ode to André Prince Jeffries, owner of Prince's Hot Chicken in Nashville, and will be featured every Tuesday throughout November. It's available by the piece or basket and served Hot or Extra Hot with Martin's Potato Bread and pickles. Chick's is featuring the special with HopArt IPA from COAST as well.

Speaking of beer, Charleston Beer Works' new location at 480 King St. opens today. The new space features two floors and a new menu.

And finally one of our favorite mixers is a finalist for the Good Food Awards. Joe and MeriElena Raya's Bittermilk No. 6 Oaxacan Old Fashioned was the only Charleston product to make it to the fancy food award finals. The Good Food Awards select the best of the best in beer, charcuterie, cheese, chocolate, cider, coffee, confections, honey, oils, pantry, pickles, preserves, and spirits, and can be a game changer to a growing purveyor.

"When we began Bittermilk we were just trying to keep up with the growth and couldn't properly account for it in the necessary ways," says MariElena. "If we were to win a Good Food Award, we would now be able to properly handle this growth and accommodate exposure and the likely increase of sales. Just by being nominated, we feel we can gain further exposure as producers that use quality ingredients to thoughtfully craft products."

We've moved up & upped the game - come join us for the grand opening of 480 King Street tomorrow at 5PM!We're serving...
