Food wasn't that good there.
Love this article! I've been going to Cedar Creek some this summer, and I'm hoping to return, soon. It's a purifying experience for me!
Small businesses are not being crushed by regulation, they are being crushed by their own inability for whatever reason for not providing a product that enough people are willing to pay for to maintain profitability.
I find it funny when free business advocates blame the government for their own failure. Successful business is simple - understand your costs and liabilities going in, then find a product or service to sell that people want badly enough to pay your price. If you aren't selling enough to cover expenses, than you were wrong. Simple as that.

It seems the question might have been asked if the landlord refused to renew or if the tenant refused a rent hike. If a rent hike had been proposed (after all this is a business with 13 successful years, rent hikes usually come more frequently than that) and tenant refused, the story is entirely different than presented. But oh yeah, paragraph 4 - another attempt at Chris Haire smartassery - way to keep the spirit alive Kinsey.
WOO HOO!!! SC claims 1.1% of the fastest growing businesses in the US... no wait.... SC is 2% of the states..... nevermind
"NoMo no more"?
NoMo never was except in the City Paper. I always felt it an interesting piece of arrogance that CP staff felt they had the right to name a neighborhood.
My suggestion would be Hipsterhaven
Bummer. Can I feel nostalgic for something that I saw birthed even if it isn't that old? Who am I kidding? I still miss Sharkey's!
Would that there were more articles like this one! Reading about the past leads to an understanding of who and what we are today --and why we are the way we are-- and it follows that we learn more about what we could be in the future. In short, reading history makes us better people and better citizens.
There was one on James Island too, lest we forget.
Yet another business forced out by greedy landlords wanting ridiculous amounts of rent.
Sorry to disappoint all the negative un romantics out there.....But Sir Thomas Ravenel
And Lady Kathryn Denis are still the most handsome and beautiful couple
in the Kingdom of Charleston.....They are equally royal, brilliant, stunning, elegant
and in love with each other.....just their timing is off as Lady Kathryn has wisely
noted .....Sad to to see the proverbial "onion" peeled away highlighting the disappointing others in the cast. They have displayed disloyalty, inappropriate
behavior, rudeness , lack of character and certainly a lack of Southern Charm!
Long live and Prosper with many blessings to Sir Thomas and his Lady Love
the beautiful and wise Lady Kathryn who is the most educated mannered and
Charming of them all....
Relevant and insightful on so many levels and leads to the most significant ritual of all--Who are you? What do you embody? How do you manifest your dignity as a human being? How do you grow beyond and determine how the others see you? Can't wait to see the exhibit,
I always thought as Upper Morrison, or Cool Blow. Guess UPMO be out!
Instead of Upper Edge, I just like North Edge. A lot easier and rolls off the tongue. The Drum is also way better than NoMo. I wish as a city we steered away from recycled terminology that's slightly adapted to fit us: "Silicon Harbor", "NoMo"... it's a poor attempt and completely unoriginal. Let it die here and now.
Others to throw on the pile:
- Union Village - plays on the North/South and the decidedly different vibe up there as opposed to historical Charleston (more tech, culinary influence of North and West Coast, architecture, and commerce). Also, this area is a lot more of a melting pot between races, cultures, and especially ages in comparison to King St Corridor and south.
- Bridgeport - It's just by the Ravenel, the Naval port is part of this area (not as inspired but no one can argue with the applicable nature of the name)
Small business owners are being crushed by government regulations, Obamacare, the economy & overseas competition. Low information consumers are quick to judge their business decisions. The Crosby's and their partners have run a quality, ethical business for close to 30 years. They should be supported for unavoidable business decisions & not blamed. They were encroached upon by urban development. Enjoy the fruits of your labor & thanks for years of great seafood.
This is getting exhausting. Read this article in its context, people. The Royal American is an awesome local venue. But ... THIS IS A STUDENT GUIDE. A short one at that, because we're not a blog with unlimited space - we're a costly print publication. And while Royal is great, they have no all-ages shows. And while the Music Hall is also one of my faves, underagers are more likely to be drawn to dives. This was written by a college student for college students, listing "some" not "all" venues. Anyone who thinks we don't support the Royal American and a ton of other great venues doesn't read our paper anyway. We recommend shows everywhere every single week. And yes we could have done nothing but list downtown venues, but then we'd do a disservice to places like the Hive that do all-ages shows all the time and are huge supporters of the underground, underage scene. If you're not a cheap dive bar that does all-ages shows, you should not expect to see yourself in a student guide.
It seems like this is an article aimed at incoming CofC freshmen, mostly <21. The Royal American as far as I know is 21+, as are most of the bar venues in the city. Still, JWB's comment is gold.
I will say, though, that the advice to just talk to musicians is solid. I've been in a lot of bands and it feels good to connect to people, and musicians connect with other musicians so you'll get good intel on bands you haven't otherwise heard of.
