Fascinating! It's almost like someone was reaching through from the 1800's in infinite jest and manipulating articulate whimsy.
More room for in-your-face arrogance, disappointed tourists and so-so food. Leave it to the tourists for they know not how fake this place is.
Hey that's me!
12 inch give all bone.Why so short we wand longer buns,24 inch,like in philly
There will be no ventriloquists at the Charleston Day of Puppetry.
As a native new yorker (and proud charlestonian) I cant wait for the idea of a russ and daughters or barney green grass or balthazar type spot. tip - any reference to the upper east side makes zero sense. That's like calling a restaurant Midtown (sorry). Just doesn't fit the bill.... there's no place like what you're aiming for on the UES. Can't wait though!!!
Also, if anyone is interested, here is a comprehensive (and very well documented) history of the building. This may load a little slow because its on a test server, it will go live when the building opens.
The 12 teller grills aren't gone. They are safe and sound in my garage in Fort Mill waiting to make their return to Charleston. I'm going to install them in a public space in One Broad so that Philip Simmons fans can see them. They are perfect, beautiful in every way and in excellent condition. Mark Beck.
I was at that meeting. Elliott Summey ate crow and Henry Darby had a meltdown.
The people who got up to speak were genuinely pissed off. Darby and Summey were required to be at that meeting. Those speakers weren't. They were citizens who felt strongly enough about the issues (especially Summey's comments about Anna Johnson) to get up off the couch after a long day of work and come out to tell the council how they felt. They (the speakers) were not professional politicians. They were mostly ordinary people who spoke from the heart.
Vic Rawls should understand by now that : 1. Sometimes your boss yells at you. That's a good time to listen. and 2. Real democracy is noisy. And messy. If he doesn't get this maybe he belongs in another place ... perhaps in the 19th century.

We love Aldi. God bless them for not contributing to natural destruction by giving away lethal plastic bags to don't- give-a -shit citizens of our communities. Also for not promoting unemployment by providing automated check out for the socially unconcerned. Great offerings of fairly priced items not normally found in our regular stores. Bei Aldi gut gekauft!
This is possibly the laziest CP article I've ever read. Aside from the obnoxious tweets, it's like 5 sentences. I'm surprised the arrogant and condescending 'journalist' made the effort to Uber it from their ivory tower all the way to Mt. Pleasant. A quarter in the cart?! What newfangled trickery! #cartshard #kinseyconfused
@factory connection: sarcasm and smartass are not necessarily synonomous
The value of Aldi is wasted on the Mt. Pleasant privledged. Park Circle would have been a better location. We'd be happy to return the carts and bring our own bags. We'd be thrilled to have local access to low-cost organic food.
I look forward to checking it out...good heads up that I should bring my own bags and a quarter...but mostly what I got from this article is that Kinsey Gidic is arrogant if not an Ass.
OMG! You are not actually going to call it: "Upper East Side Waffle House"
That is a most uncool name for such a cool building and spot.
Jessie, don't always agree with your political point of view but I would have to agree with your premise here, there is a time for everything. I've sat on many meetings where most of the people present knew exactly what was afoot and completely disapproved, but did nothing because they were afraid to take the heat from certain 'nice' power players. Civility and common courtesy in public discourse are important, there is something to be said for the southerner's way of calling someone a jackass without using that word, or being a jackass in the process, Mr. Summy however has certainly failed in that regard. We've all known since our days in junior high that civility and common courtesy can be handy tools for intimidation and manipulation. Interesting article, thanks.
"Upper East Side Waffle House"? Huh? That's the name and this isn't an Onion piece? That's the best they can come up with? So they're going to going serving Shrimp and Grits six ways?
Anything with Waffle House in the name is an appropriation of West Ashley culture and further gentrification of downtown.
Kinsey may have been going for sarcastic humor, but she succeeded only on one point. Yes I'm of a similar political mind. Yes I (as a submarine veteran) can deal in a level of sarcasm that could peel paint off a barn. Yes I appreciate jokes. I would have appreciated funny jokes here. As it is the piece reads like you were merely trolling. Savvy move, internet-focused editor.
Now down to the brass tacks: Aldi's original parent company split into two entities due to some Albrecht family dispute into Aldi Sud and Aldi Nord (that's South and North for you folks that demand we speak 'Merican in 'Merica). In the United States: Aldi Nord is the parent of Trader Joe's, Aldi Sud is the parent of Aldi US. For some unconfirmed gossip: the Mt.P Aldi and TJ's are also owned by competing members of the same family, with no small amount of bad blood engendered by their close proximity.

You are my best friend in the head too!
