  • Howard & Howard
    Pamela Howard recalls her wedding day with a hint of ruefulness. It was a humid, overcast August afternoon in Lake Wylie, and a sudden flood the night before knocked out the power. Guests were sweating. The cake was melting. And her event planner was panicking. Now an event planner herself, Ms. Howard remembers this experience every time she sits down with clients to arrange everything from intimate catered dinners for two to extravagant weddings. “Things are going to happen,” she acknowledges. “But how you handle the unexpected as a professional—that’s what really makes the planner shine.” For her part, Ms. Howard strives to ensure her events go off without a hitch by working closely with clients. She discusses their inspiration for their event face-to-face, and delves into their favorite foods, colors, flowers, and music. She’s gone to great lengths to make events successful, from tracking down a classical violinist at the last minute to recruiting a veritable army of servers to cater a celebrity’s 300-guest banquet. “Your job is to keep the client happy,” says Ms. Howard. “And you always have a plan B . . . even if that just means praying for a sunny day.”

  • Great Wall of China South
    Feeding the discerning palates of the local community for more than 25 years, Great Wall of China South earns its longtime success with a sweet and savory smorgasbord of meat and vegetarian dishes. Inside the eatery, grandiose fish tanks and candles emit a soft glow on tables, from which plated Chinese fare wafts its spiced decadence and helps customers make decisions from the extensive menu offerings. Culling tastes from land and sea, chefs top pepper steak with onions, dunk chicken in sauces such as teriyaki, and marry dishes of shrimp and broccoli under the watch of their proud parents. Lavish Sunday lunch buffets line up the eatery's popular dishes in a sampling of eats that give guests ideas for what to order on their next visit.
