Best Way To Piss Off Restaurant Owners

Hurricane Evacuation

Staff Pick

You thought asking for charity donations annoyed restaurateurs? Think again. The knights of Charleston’s culinary round table really get their codpieces in a twist when you tell them a storm is brewing and, oh yeah, evacuation is mandatory (ish). Hurricane Matthew did just that in October. When then-governor Nikki Haley gave the command to get out of dodge, restaurateurs responded with a very clear “Say what?” Forget safety, they were ready to cash in on hurricane partiers. That said, it did make for some great boarded-up window signs. The winner? Nick’s Original BBQ’s “86 Cheese Biscuits for Matthew.” —Kinsey Gidick
