LAST WEEK’S MYSTERY might look like a Captain D’s Seafood shop, but the location has pork, not fish, in its lineage. Publisher Andy Brack offered this photo as a weekly mystery after taking it to illustrate one of the locations used in the second series of The Righteous Gemstones. Almost 100 readers guessed, with most correctly identifying this blue-and-white building as an old Sticky Fingers location in Mount Pleasant. The winning 7th entry came from Warrick McZeke of Charleston, who will be getting a little City Paper swag for guessing correctly.

Every Monday, the City Paper offers a mystery photo taken somewhere in the Lowcountry. We encourage you to guess — and make sure to share your name and the town in which you live. We’ll uncover the mystery the following week and, every now and then, give a prize.

BONUS: If you want to submit a mystery photo taken by you for us to share, send it to our mystery email address. Make sure to put “Submission” in the subject line.

PAST MYSTERIES: While the guessing time on these mysteries is over, you might like seeing some old mystery photos that readers have puzzled over. Enjoy!
