This secluded Cayce spot has featured here before (albeit apparently with the wrong street address) and 2108 State carried on with the Lizard Man tradition.

I'll admit this corner is so far off my radar that it never even crossed my mind to stop here when I wasn't in direct visual contact with the place, but apparently it was pretty good. There Facebook page is still up for now, and if you should want to buy the building, LoopNet has you covered.

Frame Of Mind, 1520 Main Street Suite 1E, Spring 2015 (moved)   1 comment

Frame Of Mind "South Carolina's only eyewear boutique and art gallery" has moved from 1520 Main Street across the river to 140 State Street.

I'm not exactly sure when the move was, but sometime after 18 January 2015 when these pictures were taken.

As a four-eyes myself, I'm always glad to see that not everyone prefers contacts.

I was driving to Parkland Plaza the other day, and noticed this old house on State Street had closeout signs up. It had never caught my eye before, so I wasn't sure what business had closed, but the Christmas tree in the upstairs window is a pretty good clue. This was local Christmas decor shop 'Tis The Season, and their Facebook page announced the closing for 1 Feburay with the note that the business is going online.

Another day, another Radio Shack.

This is the one in Parkland Plaza in Cayce, and is another casualty of the chain's bankruptcy.

UPDATE 14 March 2015 -- Gone:

Red Door Tavern, 134 1/2 State Street: 6 December 2014   1 comment

The Free Times reports that this State Street loft has closed as of early December.

I really like comedy and make the trek to Charleston fairly often for improv, so I don't know why I never made it across the river. It's funny, I guess.

This day spa on the State Street side of Parkland Plaza looks like it was closing down in September of 2012, with new hours posted, and a fairly empty room inside.

By November, the window signage was down (though the marquee was still up), and the whole storefront was vacant.

UPDATE 17 November 2014 -- Now Venus Nail & Spa:

Gas Station / RB Marine Service, 1800 State Street: 2000s(?)   3 comments

The only real google hit I'm getting for this is RB Marine Service, but it's obvious that this little building at the corner of State & Poplar Streets in Cayce was originally a gas station of some sort. Judging from the general look of the building, I would probably put it in the 1950s, and I'm sure it was full service and the guy would check your battery and tires while the gas was pumping..

I suspect that in the years between then, and whenever RB moved in, it was good number of other things. There's some sort of label scar on the awning, but nothing I can read.

Tea, 140 State Street: 2011   2 comments

Tea was apparently a Vietnamese tea house with sandwiches and other fare. It was on that little strip of State Street near Meeting Street which has a whole row of storefronts, and was in between Rish Florist and the original Cafe Strudel location.

I don't have my phonebooks right now, but the last online reviews I see for the place are dated early 2011, so I'm guessing it closed that year.

Cafe Strudel, 118 State Street: September 2012 (moved)   1 comment

As mentioned in this State story, longtime State Street fixture Cafe Strudel is.. staying on State Street. They have however moved south two blocks to 300 State Street (certainly within easy walking distance from the former location), and have re-opened ahead of schedule. In fact they were still painting the new marquee sign as I walked by, but underneath the ladder were open for business.

Zeus Pizza, 224 Knox Abbott Drive: May 2012 (Closed again)   7 comments

Zeus Pizza was the follow-on operation to Tony's Pizza in Parkland Plaza, using in fact a good bit of the same signage and interior setup.

As you can see from these pictures, the restaurant was a long narrow space. I think it might have benefited from more window tables, but the one time I ate there, I found it pleasant enough. As I recall, I had the stuffed shells with garlic bread, and it was perfectly fine. At that time, the restaurant had a cloth sign for "Zeus" hung over the "Tony's" lettering, as you can see in commenter Andrew's photos at the Tony's link above. I presume that if they had made it over the initial hump, they would have eventually gotten permanent letters over the marquee.

I'm not exactly sure when they closed -- The April issue of Skirt magazine is still in the inside rack, but that may be bi-monthly. I'm going to say it was probably at the end of May giving them about an 8 or 9 month run.

UPDATE 1 August 2012: Zeus is open again. See the comments for details, but here is the website.

UPDATE 4 October 2012: As mentioned in the comments, Zeus is unfortunately closed again:
