After 27 years of working in the back of the house, Giovanni Gamaleldin’s very own restaurant, King Wings and Subs, opened last Saturday at the corner of Cannon and Upper King Street. The concept is simple: quick, in-and-out Italian-style panini, calzones, and sandwiches for around $6. Sandwiches will come with chips or a salad, and if wangs are your thang, you can get them Buffalo-style in varying degrees of heat. For more info, call 345-1485. –Lindsay Sainlar


The Three Lions Club over at Blackbaud Stadium needs some help in order to beat out some big city bars in pursuit of a “Best of…” branding by U.S. Soccer. If enough soccer fans are willing to vouch via that the members-only pub is “the best soccer-focused or soccer-friendly bar in the United States,” the Charleston Battery bar could win some bragging rights. Director of Soccer and Stadium Operations Andrew Bell thinks the Three Lions Club is the best bar in the world because it hosts an unmatched collection of irreplaceable soccer memorabilia. And don’t forget the hot soccer players. –LS


The old Blimpie’s next to Mondo’s on Folly Road has gotten a major sandwich upgrade with the brand new DB’s Famous Cheesesteaks, Burgers, & Fries opening in the vacant spot. DB is Danny Bailey, who moved here from Delaware after years of visiting friends he’s known his entire life. He’s known the cheesesteak business almost as long. His parents Mickey and June have five stores in Delaware, and June says the Bailey cheesesteaks are good because they’re made from love – and authentic ingredients. The hoagie bread and meat are sent straight from Philly (i.e., the home of the cheesesteak). Fries are hand-cut daily and cooked in peanut oil. And the burgers are never frozen, Mickey says. Sandwiches run around $6.50 and extra mushrooms or pickles or peppers, what have you, are thrown on at no extra cost. Mickey promises, “You’re going to get hooked up.” –LS
