Having only been in this town for a few years, any downtown imbiber will tell you, that when T-Rav, wanders into the establishment your drinking in, it's time to leave.

Re: “The smoky meats are promising, but some of Swig & Swine's dishes could use improvement

You must have gone on a bad day. While I kind of agree with the judgement of the wings and the ribs, the brisket and smoked turkey were to die for. I could barely move the brisket from the platter to my tray and ended up using my hands because because it was falling apart and unbelievably juicy. And the turkey... I'll start by saying I'm not really a fan of turkey - but this, this was something else. There was so much flavor and it ended up being one of my favorite meats. And the pork belly. The pork belly was amazing. Looking at it I wasn't too sure, but after taking a bite I was hooked. The only thing that was a bit dry to me was the ribs. I can't even comment on dessert because I couldn't save room for it with all the delicious meat in front of my face. The sides were good (we chose baked beans, mac n cheese, and coleslaw), the baked beans were definitely the favorite. I would highly recommend this place as it is some of the best BBQ I've ever had.

Re: “The Edwin S. Taylor Fishing Pier's new Pier 101 restaurant will be a nod to the old Pavilion

Sounds like pretty much the same kinds of things that Locklears served. Hope it's good.

Geez, hopefully its just as shitty as his other places. The worst, but what can you possibly expect from a floating hotel 6. To quote Pete Wells "When we hear the words Donkey Sauce, which part of the donkey are we supposed to think about?" Ewwwwww. Exactly.

Re: “Nathalie Dupree and Toni Tipton-Martin talk Top Chef's ode to Edna Lewis, the 'Mammy' stereotype, and celebrating the invisible

I am sadden that many of the chefs of Top Chef have never heard of Edna Lewis. Edna Lewis was a great chef and a classy lady with great food.
Culinary schools should teach the students about her life and her southern food.

Re: “Colicchio addresses Top Chef: Charleston's controversial Boone Hall plantation episode on Esquire

Give me a break with all this PC stuff. Get over it. The Civil War ended 152 years ago. We elected a black president. Well, half black. We had two black AG's. We hv black senators, black mayors, black congressman. I am really getting sick and tired about all of this walking on egg shells. How was Top Chef to know a black chef was going to be in a sudden death venue? And how can you not do a venue on a Plantation if you are doing the entire show in Charleston???? Why even live in Charleston if you know the Civil War started here, for goodness sake.

Re: “Colicchio addresses Top Chef: Charleston's controversial Boone Hall plantation episode on Esquire

Boone Hall is perfect for a "Reality TV Show", considering the house was built in 1936 by a Canadian owner who wanted a "more Gone with the Wind" style house than the one standing at the time he bought it.

Re: “Why Thomas Ravenel lashed out at Proof's Craig Nelson

Charleston Society And Others.
...this is entertaining for those who follow Reality TV things and enjoy
the cliquish social cults of Southerners and those who afflict them.
13 years is a long time to hold a grudge by a large group of people.
He may be so slighted, Thomas Ravenel may have a class-action suit.
Talk about discrimination in the White Social Classes and here is your
proof! The whole thing is badly handled with public rants and press
coverage. In the good old day of Civilized Charleston one just smiled
and ''carried on'' with good manners or just shot them at the Yacht Club.
