WEEK IN REVIEWS —"Bougnat brings French sensibilities, refined generosity and authentic charm to its shopping center location," states critic Deidre Schipani in her write-up of the Mount Pleasant newcomer. There's a few missteps along the meal, but she says the "shortcomings are minor and correctable." [CP]

EVENTWIRE Even though it's way past Labor Day, organizers of this Saturday's
"pop-up flash dinner picnic" would like attendees to dress in white cocktail attire for the outdoor event. The idea is to give ticket holders a three hour warning as to where the bring-your-own dinner will be held, and everyone heads out with picnic baskets in hand. Tickets are $35 and can be purchased online. Chef Brett McKee (formerly of Eli's Table) will be on hand selling gourmet meals for those not wanting to pack a basket The event starts at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 4. [Holy City Sinner]

HAPPY HOUR HERE Breakfast/lunch spot Kitchen 208 will stay open late (for them) on Thursday, October 16 to host a happy hour event from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Drinks will be cheap ($3 champagne, $4 craft beers, etc.) and plates won't break the budget either ($5 for loaded nachos). Remember: they've got a big patio to soak up the cool Charleston weather. [EaterWire]

EVENTWIRE The 6th Annual Red Party is inspired by Marie Antoinette and 18th century masquerade balls. Bartenders from across Charleston will serve cocktails with nods to the French Revolution and local restaurants Sugar Bake Shop, Home Team BBQ, Edmund's Oast, and more will provide the food. It's a good excuse to get dressed up, imbibe, and partake in some delightful bites. The evening starts at 7:00 p.m., on Friday, October 24. Tickets start at $90 and are available online. [EaterWire]
