This festival by far was the worst event I have ever attended. As a native New Yorker I have experienced a variety of cultural festivals and one should never try to adulterate a cultural event/experience. They only had one vendor selling Caribbean food, which was horrible. The rest were selling food you can find at a backyard BBQ? The parade consisted of maybe 7-10 people and only one person with a full carnival contest, the other person who was not of Caribbean descent had a partial custom on? This was a real disappointment and a shame that this event was supposed to represent a carnival/festival. They needed to better organize this event and advertise accordingly. The advertisement was truly deceiving and did not follow through with its promise. Beware of the events advertised in this city, it is never what they say it is or what you imagine it to be!
SUCKY LITTLE OVERPRICED PLACE NEVER HAVE ANYTHING I EVER WENT THERE FOR I AM SURPRISED IT IS STILL THERE.
We recently had a horrible experience with this company. First off - the boat is in poor shape at best. The top is missing a bar and is help on by a rope. The windshield was cracked and the radio did not work. When we arrived - the girl helping us told us that this was the only boat they had running.
If that wasn't enough... the boat was rated for 10 people. We had 8 people and coolers. The boat could not go over 8 miles an hour.
We brought the boat back to the marina and were basically told it was our fault and the boat wasn't really rated for even the 8 people we had. We asked for a refund of the unused 6 hours. After being rude - they said they would only make us pay for the 2 hours used.
Here is the kicker... the two hours were then charged at the 2 hr rate (basically the 75% of the cost for 25% of the time).
The next time I want to be ripped off while being serviced by a 16 year old jerk - I know where to go.
Save your money and stay away.
Nice to duck into for air conditioning, but now that anyone can buy Moonpies ANYWHERE in the world, I am not sure why I want to spend a ton of money to buy them on a vacation in Charleston SC - so that then I have to ship them back home... or put them in the car for the drive back home...
And, sitting in there to eat and drink expensive food that is bad for me is not exactly a good investment of my time on vacation in Charleston...
Still, the store itself is nice... just not sure WHY I'd ever want to go again -- or why I went in the first place.
Stono River Kennel is now Chucktown Charley. Check out http://www.chucktowncharley.com.
I went to the first roast they had many years ago. It was crowded and poorly organized then, and appears to be the same in subsequent years. The prices are outrageous, and the traffic is horrible! Go out to Bowen's Island or a local place and eat your oysters and drink your beer. You'll enjoy it more and save a lot of time and money.
The reputation of the Oyster Festival has been getting poorer and poorer over the past few years. Why go all the way over there, sit for hours in traffic (in and out), pay an incredible price for just a few oysters, and wait in long, long lines for the honor of being fucked? Save the trip, go locally, and have hot oysters and good beer that dows not require a mortgage on your home?
Absolutely disappointing! Where to begin..... First each year the selection and prices for USED items is insane! Stains, rips, buttons missing, zippers then guess what... to bad, no returns or exchanges. And the kicker....No children under 12 unless they are strapped down to a carrier? Good luck finding one of those for a 7 year old! Sorry to tell you people, but the messiest children are the ones strapped down in a stroller! They are the children eating and grabbing your "precious" inventory! I have never in my lifetime been to a place for children's items where your child isn't welcome. Absolutely insane! This is not stated on their webpage. Honestly they would probably sell more of that junk if they allowed children (by them begging for toys etc). No money out of my pocket. I will never go back there, ever! I will choose to spend my money where all children are welcome! If you allow any children at all, all children should be welcome or no children at all. Absolutely insane!
"There are several bike shops in Mount Pleasant, I suggest you shop around."
That is right there are several, and they all suck.
I doubt the editors would appreciate AIncest being mean to Ms. Lentz just for giggles. Stay classy. Folks like you are the reason nobody likes James Island.
Breathing from your mouth doesn't grant you the right to spray slobber on the lot of us. Tuck your shirt in, learn some manners and stop embarrassing your family.
"I simply put Town of James Island in the search engine and this is what came up."
Sounds like JI needs to hire someone to do some artisanal SEO for them.
I'm available. And pretty cheap.
Thank you for your input. I simply put Town of James Island in the search engine and this is what came up. However, I will try again to see if more information is out there. Your opinion on the "putting down of old people" is enlightening, although rude and condescending. Read it again when you get more experience. You may change your mind.
Have you tried the actual website of the town as opposed to that of a free weekly 'news'paper?
Another example of why old people should just be put to sleep.
Is this a chop shop?
Went here with my brother and wife to set up an appointment with Robin, wife places her down payment of $40 for next week, my brother and I email our tattoo ideas. Robin doesn't show up to his appointment, luckily they were able to transfer it over to a brother shop. 3 weeks and 4+ phone calls go by and they haven't responded to our email. No apologies. Taking our business elsewhere. Art work seems great, costumer service not great.
I am looking for a Clyde Burris who lived in West Memphis, AR 50 or so years ago. He had a brother named Rodney, a beautiful sister (who's name escapes me) and a mentally disabled sister named Peggy. Just wondering if you are the Clyde Burris who was my neighbor on S. Worthington Dr. Elaine Wever Wolff (email@example.com)
The Rose Knot is closed.
Wow!! Get'em I never cared for the store in the first place so now I'm really not going there.
Have not been able to have a piercing for a few decades now because it seemed no matter what earrings I tried, instant infection. Went in and talked to J. And he helped me pick out titanium neometal earrings, and two weeks later, still no infection! Appreciated the time taken to explain everything too. Cheers!
