I am in Spain all month. EVERYBODY brings their multiple kids and multiple dogs everywhere. Bars, cafes, restaurants, tapas. Lots of wine and beer. It's actually seems perfectly okay to me and this is very acceptable in all of Europe. Of course they are all walking, unlike the majority of fatass Americans who have to drive everywhere. DSS would have a field day in Madrid and Barcelona. Guess what? Some kids still catch a swat on the ass when acting up in public in Spain. Gasp! The horror! Guess thats why I do not even really notice them here, they behave.
5/6 ain't bad, I guess. I don't really love pumpkin beers in the first place, so I wasn't going into the Pumpkick expecting much anyway, but I was surprised I didn't hate it. Thx for the feedback.
"How and where to imbibe with your kids in tow "
Surely I'm not the only one who has a problem with this.
So you are going to drink and then drive your children home?
You deserve to be arrested and have DSS take your children if you do that.
Children do not belong in bars, PERIOD, and anyone who shows up at a bar with children needs to be turned back at the door.
I thought I had seen every sick columnist that the CCP has but this one takes the cake.
Pumpkick is awful. The rest I am on board with. I love a lot of New Belgium beers, but Pumpkick belongs in the junk pile.
But several times in the past month I have left more than one bar because of children sitting at the bar. Not only is it illegal (I'm pretty sure) so I don't know why the managers allow it anyway, but single people don't want to sit at a table for four in a mass of screaming kids running around. I want to sit at the bar and unwind from my 12 hour shift in peace. So as much as your kids are enjoying watching football and having Shirley Temples please head to the back of the restaurant or just stay home.
As someone that has played in a number of bands that do happy-hour shows, I've always appreciated having kids around. Those mofos are ready to dance like they just don't care while all the "party animals" are still too sober/terrified to even bob their heads. Rock on, little tykes. If mom has the right tip in hand, I'll even sing "Let it Go" for you.
As a parent, most of the advice in this article is solid: keep the kids out of adult stuff: fancy/smoky/gnarly/bawdy/romantic places and get them in bed before night. Your kids don't want to be there for party time. Kids aren't classy, so don't force them to be. And they should NEVER, EVER, EVER be running around or raising their voices any louder than the adults at the next table.
In your own house away from people who do not want to be bothered by your annoying children. Or, get a babysitter. If you can afford to go out and drink, you can afford hired help for a few hours.

And remember everyone:
Every extra person who bikes, takes a car out of traffic and out of valuable street parking.
That said, try to make them feel safe by avoiding passing them in a narrow lane and everything else you can think of :)
More tips n' laws:
** Your bike WILL BE CONFISCATED by the City if you park on anything but a corral on KING STREET between Calhoun and Spring. Don't expect a note -- if your bike is parked illegally and disappears, grab $40 cash and head to the police station on Lockwood. And be ready to buy a new lock.
** DON'T TEXT on your bike -- it's illegal, you can be ticketed.
** Helmets aren't mandatory, just a good idea. Find one you like and give it a try.
** And to reiterate, USE LIGHTS on your bike -- white on the front, red on the back. You can be ticketed and fined if you're seen biking without them at night.
Nice map, Suchy.
This is a nice list of beers. However, Rodenbach is not brewed by the makers of bavik.
You should really mention something about the rip tides. Believe me when I say that the rip tide will take you away. There are more water missions for ignorant and misinformed people and anything on the Island. Trust me. My family has been there since 1906.
VRBO has all the rental places on SI. Some of the older, non-beachfront ones aren't very expensive.
A trip to the top of the SI lighthouse was a standard outing for SI Elementary students in the early 80's. Great view unmatched from any other local building except the Morris Island lighthouse.
How hipster kool is Folly Beach? Just look at all the plaid and craft beer being peddled to CofC kool kids.
Hubba Hubba!! I'd like to Michael-Sam that cutie pie midget w the tats!!
Development in this area has the advantage of excellent, existing transit connections to the North and South on several busy CARTA bus lines, including the #10, #11 and #20. Many younger tech workers prefer to put their time and money into paying off student load debt, travel and lifestyle than owning a car full time.
No hoax Curtis. Here's a link to the article is case you still haven't seen it.
Was that column about Ms. Barna's retirement for real or a hoax? I saw it on the homepage earlier but now cant find it...
What he ^ said. The more perks an office has, the more time you're going to spend there. It's a great scam. No thanks. My home has alcohol and video games without the coworkers and the delusion I am doing something meaningful because I'm at work 80 hours a week.
