Re: “FRIGHT LIFE: A Halloween Round-Up

I think your Fright Life calendar may need updating. Instead of "more than 80 events in our Fright Life halloween calendar", there are actually only 3 listed! Help!

Re: “Champagne and dining all in white

It was so much fun! Not snobbish at all and the attendees represented all kinds of folks! Everyone was polite,cheerful and friendly. And in that sense it was,indeed, very Charleston!
I will attend again next year.....and bring more friends!

Re: “Champagne and dining all in white

To the casual observer, or reader of this article, it may have seemed like a snob fest. Far from it!! With everything from casual to wedding attire, and caviar to chick fil a, it was good people watching, and a great time!! Definitely not my husbands scene so I brought a friend. Life is all about experiences, and this was one to remember. I can't wait for next year and fully plan to go ALL out, just for the fun and absurdity of it :)

Re: “Champagne and dining all in white

With all due respect...I thought it was a terrible idea, bitched about it to my wife, and didn't want to go.....It was a ton of fun and I'd go again. I still don't like the idea of bringing my own table though.

Re: “The Cocks win, but the fallout from Spurrier's departure gets even worse

Who cares. They are still going to lose to everyone remaining on their schedule. Including the Citadel.

"Sounds terrible."

Sounds perfectly Charleston, though.

Re: “Champagne and dining all in white

$20 glasses of Veuve and an all white party? Sounds terrible.

Re: “The Gamecocks will lose on Saturday

Brilliantly said. Calling most of these guys "student athletes" has also become a joke. The NFL is the only major pro sport that doesn't have a pro minor league system.

Like baseball, Allow NFL teams to draft any player that has graduated high school. Allow players to be in the draft upon graduation of HS. The players may, however can go to college if they so choose. If this happens, the NFL team controls their rights in the future. Or they can be compensated in a future draft for that pick. Players who don't get drafted highly can go back to college! Let them hire agents without compromising their college eligibility.

Re: “Gamecocks have a chance of winning against Mizzou

The plains? Are you kidding me, has this jack a$$ ever been to Missouri. Ozark mountains are anything but flat. Missouri was a powerhouse in the Big 12 and will continue to be in the SEC.

Question, which is correct...?
This: "...for a hilarious one-night..."

Re: “Weekend Roundup: These Charleston events are NOT canceled

"Closed for Business" is indeed aptly named if their Octoberfest only goes for 45 minutes in the morning as (mis)listed above.

Re: “Weekend Roundup: Frights, fests, and food

I have been to all of the Taste of Charleston events, with the exception of one or two of the early ones.




The scope and quality of food and wine has progressed exceedingly well until recently.




It culminated in allowing the restaurants to choose an appropriate wine to go with their food offerings. This was most apparent when the finer establishments were allowed to choose an exceptional wine to pair with their exquisite plating. Even the others chose well to compliment their dishes.




Ever since Southern Living took over the Tastes, the vendors have been forced to accept only Biltmore wines. They are so bad they attempt to make a sangria to disguise the taste, to no avail.




Ask any sommelier or chef, and they will tell you about how horrid they are. Just look and see if you can find a Biltmore wine on any wine list in a reputable restaurant.




I have written to Southern Living and the Executive Director of the GCRA and received no explanation on why and when this will end.



I have also written to most of the staff at the P&C to see if they have any insight on why the Taste sold out to Southern Livings pushing of a monopoly of wine selections of just Biltmore, no response from anyone.



I have asked other food and wine critics, even our local critic, who agrees that the Taste of Charleston has become a "low brow" event due to the Biltmore wine mandate.



Sponsorship is one thing, but to the detriment of the Event is extremely "distasteful" to those who wish to sample Charleston's finest and pair it with the restaurants choice of a compatible wine.




When will the Taste return to its heyday when the food can be accentuated with the proper wine, and not the liquid known as Biltmore Wine ?




Plus, at $25 to get in and $2 for food and beverage tickets, its quickly becoming another Event not affordable for locals.

Re: “An open letter from the Louisville Cardinals to the Clemson Tigers

4 days rest, a travel day...night game on the road in a tough place to play on ESPN as the only game on...completely new offensive line going against a senior-laden defensive front who may be the best front Clemson will see all year...first road start for a QB who has played 2/3 of a season...a kicker who was a walk-on and had never kicked a meaningful kick...freshmen and sophomores all over both sides of the ball. Yeah, this is pretty dumb. Supposed to be funny, I guess? Came off as a little butthurt.
