As May creeps into June, the unbearable heat and humidity draws nearer. Fortunately, this year, Charleston may have a new savior in King of Pops stand-alone Crooked Crown. This new store on Spring Street sells poptails (cocktail + popsicle), cava, beer, tamales, and other frozen treats.
Crooked Crown co-owner Andy McCarthy explained that since the city requires all bars to offer food, they wanted to serve something that related to the King of Pops products. McCarthy and team were inspired by the paletas carts in Mexico, which are many times followed by tamale vendors. They researched several tamale recipes and plan to change up the offerings according to season.
