Another week down, y’all. A lot has been happening in Charleston with two weekends that kicked off the tourist season: Southeastern Wildlife Expo and Charleston Wine + Food. But City Paper readers had a few other topics on their minds this week from the anti-lynching bill passed in Congress to Minero’s springtime reopening announcement.

Here’s a roundup of our top stories, posts and comments from March 5-11.

Stories of the week

This week’s City Paper explored the history behind Charleston street names, tried to figure out what’s going on inside Lindsey Graham’s head and offered a roundup of new local music. Readers were also interested in the U.S. Senate’s passing of an anti-lynching bill and the winner announcement for our weekly My Dream Dinner contest.
