Update August 14: The Charleston City Paper dropped by and has some early commentary and photos.

Nutshell: Looks visually nice and the food pleases, too.

Check out the paper's words and photos here.

Update August 1: HoM, downtown Charleston's only burger and prig pong bar, opened with limited hours and a limited menu on Friday night.

Today, HoM will be open from 4 to 10 p.m., and the following week will start opening at 11 a.m. for lunch.

Update July 13: We've been reporting on HoM for over a month now, and so you can imagine how excited we are that the day has almost arrived: HoM is scheduled to open on Wednesday, July 20th.

Charleston City Paper reported on the restaurant, giving readers a peek into what to expect from the ping-pong-slash-burger joint.

So what can you look forward to?

  • Burgers ranging from $6-$12
  • Vegetarian options
  • Local ingredients all around
  • Killerspin Revolution ping-pong tables
  • Free games from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m.; after that, $5 for a half-hour of playtime
  • An array of ping-pong tournaments
  • Over 25 craft beers
  • And so much more

So mark your calendars and get ready for the opening of HoM on July 20th--and don't forget to let us know what you think.

Update June 3: Just peeped the HoM website because yes, the burger and ping pong joint at 563 King Street will be opening soon!

The website's got updates on construction progress, as well as a Flickr set of some delicious looking menu items, the space and personalities involved in the project.

Also just spotted this on HoM's Twitter: HoM is now hiring for all positions. Please apply at jobs@homcharleston.com

First reporting: What do you get when you combine ping-pong and gourmet burgers? HoM, the new upper King Street spot shooting for a February 2011 opening.

Two Johnson and Wales graduates are the brains behind the HoM, which will be taking over the 563 King Street spot that once the Trusted Palate.

The Charleston City Paper has more on what's to come; read on.
