Re: “Big news, gals — Charleston is getting its first "Ladies Bar"

Well, that is something for someone to dump a bunch of money into that they don't need any more. However, I'm the last person to know what works in F&B and certainly the moneyed, female debutante barfly set.

i do hope the menu will have pictures, as my father and husband have never permitted me to learn to read.

If you call us the weaker sex, it gives others the permission to think we actually are. #feminism101 P.S. I like craft beer

Re: “Tom Colicchio gets heat for filming 'Top Chef: Charleston' at former slave plantation

And how dare you shop on the penninsula, eat at any of the fine dining establishments around market street, east bay street, meeting street. all of which is on the backs of slaves. Get over it, move on, go hide in your safe place. You should be ashamed for even living here, how disgraceful.

Re: “What does the future hold for Burke's Stoney Field?

Pay me now or pay me later. Built on a dump in the 1960's, even then rain would make it a bog. Not much was ever done to take care of it.

Re: “Tom Colicchio gets heat for filming 'Top Chef: Charleston' at former slave plantation

More leftist lunacy.

"You filmed a show in Washington DC? HOW DARE YOU?! Slave labor was used to build much of it and it was named after a DEMON SLAVE OWNER!!"

Any place that's had human habitation for a millennia or so, and many with less, had slavery present. Some still do. The first law in North America specifically legalizing slavery was, I believe, written in Massachusetts. Was Yankee slavery kind and gentle and ok? Why no histrionics over former slave sites in Brooklyn?

Re: “Prepare for religious-based registrations under Trump

You read the next line and realized it was sarcasm, surely? Trump voters are not all out "joining hate groups" just like Clinton voters are not all out rioting and committing assaults or joining violent leftist movements. Some extreme outliers in each group seemingly are, though.

Re: “Judge declares mistrial in case of Michael Slager

This story is what it is, that is Michael Slager became a bad cop, when he shot Walter Scott hitting him five times. It's obvious that one particular juror has a problem with that, being the case. In this case evidence against Slager isn't circumstantial, anyone that saw the video, saw that Scott was running from Slager not towards him.

All cops such as Slager take an oath to serve and protect. The day that Slager drew his weapon and fired eight times at Scott he wasn't at all living up to that oath.

Cops have to be held accountable for their actions, above all law abiding citizens. Slager has been charged, now he needs to be convicted.

Re: “Tom Colicchio gets heat for filming 'Top Chef: Charleston' at former slave plantation

What, you mean the rest of the US isn't full of monuments to slavers and plantation owners, so much a part of the social fabric that no one even gives it a second thought? Huh. The next thing you're going to tell me is that the bad guys didn't win the American Civil War!

Re: “Tom Colicchio gets heat for filming 'Top Chef: Charleston' at former slave plantation

Hey all, this is a fascinating thread...it's not about victimhood, any plantation needs to acknowledge who died to build it and many, not all, completely ignore it. Call enslaved people 'servants', as if they had any choice at all. US slavery was a terrible thing, check http://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/inside-americas-auschwitz-180958647/

Re: “Tom Colicchio gets heat for filming 'Top Chef: Charleston' at former slave plantation

There will always be people who would rather be victims, even by proxy. Slaves were a way of life in the past, be they white, black or otherwise. You don't see some races begging for victimhood. If you want to do something about modern slavery, Boone Hall is far from it. There is nowhere they could have filmed this in Charleston that slaves ... some owned by blacks...didn't walk.

Re: “Tom Colicchio gets heat for filming 'Top Chef: Charleston' at former slave plantation

I think the hardest part of watching that episode (which I couldn't even finish) was watching Padma asking the young man how he felt being on the plantation. I wonder how she would have answered the question, had they been filming at a rice paddy in India and someone asked her how she felt?

Re: “Tom Colicchio gets heat for filming 'Top Chef: Charleston' at former slave plantation

Boone hall has hosted the Low Country Oyster Festival for decades (34 years ?) and it has been frequented by all races of oyster lovers the entire time. Now some are offended because they cooked oysters at Boone Hall? Stop looking for things that offend you and just enjoy the south charm that is South Carolina and Charleston TODAY. It is our past that made our culinary roots and it has taken off from there.
