I am confused is this the CCP or the SBP (Sean Brock Paper)? You people currently have at least 5-6 recent stories covering Sean Brock. How much longer before you all move along? I know, I know, his new place is right down the street but lets not just write about Brock....its boring.
Why is it that "straight" people use the issue of gay/lesibans having sex. Why does it have to be about sex and why can't it be about love? Honestly?
skrotnik - I totally agree with you and the reason I posted scriptures was to respond to "Charlestonian2" who was using the scripture incorrectly to justify thier invalid scriptural point.
@uninterested: The though of you having sex turns my stomach.
You should therefore not be permitted to legally marry.
While I dislike blanket bans and moratoriums on principle, and while I agree that this is a stupid rule, I'm not sure it's stupid for the same reason the author thinks it's stupid. This isn't an issue of there not being enough bars. Downtown Charleston has a population of less than half a million. Hell, it's less that a quarter of a million, depending on who you ask. So really, the question is how many bars do 250,000 people (including the elderly and children) really need? I've walked up and down King a couple of times on Friday and Saturday nights when I first moved here. Some bars were overcrowded, some were nearly completely empty. Almost all were at half-capacity MAX by midnight (with a few notable exceptions, those being the trendy bars of the week). So really, is this moratorium going to have a real impact on the bar scene? Probably not. I'm sure development and speculation would have kept chugging along without it for the next year or so, but the area is already saturated. It's an overheated bubble. This plan just hits the breaks a little earlier than the developers wanted.
Still stupid, just not stupid because of "OMG NOT ENOUGH BARS".
I encourage you to read the article again. The uses of "unsafe passage" and "legally and safely across the Ashley River Bridge" are accurate. It is illegal to ride a bike on a sidewalk in the City of Charleston. Feel free to get in touch with more questions: firstname.lastname@example.org 725.1292
Same sex marriage proponents in this state are not doing themselves any favors putting these two hideous monsters on the front page of the paper. Just the thought of them having (sic) sex is enough to turn anyone stomach. Where are all the lipstick lesbians???
I don't know why you people are quoting scripture to justify a legal decision in the United States of America.
How about this quote?
"Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion..."
Yeah, I like that one. It's the first part of the First Amendment for a reason.
We get it. Sean Brock loves authenticity, until it comes to pricing. We are just a few columns away from Kinsey Gidick singing the praises of Sean Brock authentically shitting in her mouth.
Well, technically North Charleston, Ladson isn't Charleston..?
(A taco Brock mentions is the double tortilla,cilantro and onion with meat type you get from taco trucks and potentially spanish is the only language available)
Linda, I was 100% behind you until you cited "Daily Beast"
god this guy was annoying as commenter. who gave him a job?
"Why do we obstruct the rights of minority after minority in South Carolina?" That's easy. Bigotry.
AHHHH, I see the problem.... Chris, it's "hyperbole" not "hyperbowl"
Here, here Linda! Brava!
Just announced in another local media outlet that the AG expects the fight to go on for months so he is not letting up. He says this (even though he has gay friends [HA!]) is necessary to uphold the SC Constitution and his duties as AG. He even states he has received angry calls from gay friends on the issue. It is not about his duties at all because he has the power and wherewithal to end this madness but he still insists on holding up inequality as a right of discrimination. If I was one of his gay friends, we would not be friends anymore.
"When I came back to Charleston there was nowhere to get my fix. So, I decided for selfish reasons to open my own.” For real, Brock? No where to get tacos in Charleston?
Paul, what is the total capacity for bikes on the racks already installed? Also, at any given time during daylight hours how many of the current racks are used/unused?
Before we get the chorus of "no fair" howls from your audience, why don't we see if the larger problem is insufficient space for parking bikes or just the refusal of the bikers to accept and use the spaces provided.
“It’s in the United States where the taco has been super-sized. In Mexico, and in Mexican communities in los Estados Unidos, tacos continue to be best appreciated in small — four bites maximum. A taco is meant to be a snack, a bit, not a full meal.”
In Mexico, Tacos are a dollar (sometimes less). Hard to compare Mexico versus the USA, when we are talking about high end restaurants trying to make authentic Mexican tacos. Gourmet tacos are more of a gringo thing. Brock just needs to use that as a point when defending the tacos. All that aside, I heard the Brocko Tacos are amazing.
The moratorium on new late night businesses does not do anything to address the so called "problem" the city has with late night revelers. If the city was actually trying to address a problem they would have gone about it another way and come up with a solution that works for all parties. Instead they are giving a big finger to the people that made the investment to revitalize Upper King because they did too good of a job and their success is being penalized.
