Re: “Small Business Chamber head urges city officials to prepare for rising sea levels

Guess who's back, back again. Neddy's back, tell a friend.
Hi Ned, good to hear you once again. Forget the global warming etc. etc. and who how and where thats not what this article is about. Facts are clear, sea level is rising, year after year and guess what? Its not going to go away. I really have to once more go with the proof I see when it rains on the peninsular compared to when I was a kid and the evidence provided by NOAA. If you think its not rising....prove it. The scientific community will welcome your studies.

Re: “The Agenda: T-Rav says he'll likely make indie senate run; Haley announces DOT pick; Charleston as UNESCO site?

I heard his interview with Rocky D yesterday. It changed my opinion of T's chances of winning against anyone to a negative. He just sounds pompous and arrogant (are those the same?), and could never win against a strong opponent. All he will do is water down the possible Republican vote by taking votes from that party. And with the field I am witnessing who choose to run against Graham, I fear we are in for another term from him. No one can tell me what they really are going to do that is nothing more than a sound bite, or that is different from the Washington crap we are being served daily.

Re: “Don't try to mix and match the tacos at Sol Southwest

We will all see whether or not these guys can come up with a place that is consistent. As you know, over 50% of new restaurants fail in the first year....so let's come back to here next April and see if they are still there. If they don't listen to their customers, however, no place of business can survive.

Re: “Don't try to mix and match the tacos at Sol Southwest

i can attest to the bad service. I have sat at the bar and been ignored consistently by the bar staff while they converse with each other, eat, drink, etc. The happy hour specials are pretty weak too.

Re: “Best Folly Beach Restaurant

I have been watching the show on Bravo and it absolutely looks like a place where I want to spend the rest of my life there.

Re: “Don't try to mix and match the tacos at Sol Southwest

While we've found the food to be ok, our issue is with poor service. We've made three visits since opening to dine, once at a table and twice at the bar. Beverage service takes far too long. It seems as if the staff is more concerned conversing with each other than attending to empty glasses, that is if you're lucky enough to even get the first drink within 10 minutes of sitting down at the bar. We too encountered the no substitution policy and were told " we just don't do it". The place does seem to stay busy so maybe we just have the bad luck of three consecutive visits with less than stellar service. We now have instituted our own policy-not spending our money where it is obviously not appreciated. We won't roll the dice on a fourth visit.

Re: “Don't try to mix and match the tacos at Sol Southwest

I can play too. Everyone who disagrees with my opinion is a terrible human being, gets 0 out of 5 stars and is stripped of their citizenship. And on top of that, I don't have to substantiate any of my statements.

On a serious note- I've heard very mixed reviews about this place and Mark Ayers may be on to something.

Re: “Longtime Riverdogs PA announcer Ken Carrington won't call games at The Joe this season

This is very sad news...we have attended Riverdog games for years mainly due to the wonderful show Ken put on every game...no doubt we will not be attending any more Riverdog games in the future. Ken's antics made every game a true joy, the Riverdogs and their sponsers have lost a true jewell.

Re: “Small Business Chamber head urges city officials to prepare for rising sea levels

Every, and I repeat, EVERY, model used by global warming proponents and EVERY prediction they have made going back decades has not only been wrong, but epic fails. The co-founder of Greenpeace and the creator of the Gaia theory, 2 high profile scientists and past global warming proponents, have both reversed course in the past 12 months and said it's all bullshit. Other respected scientists that once supported it have done the same thing. More & more people are growing weary of this bullshit, which is only supported by anecdotal evidence, not real evidence much less proof. There would be few scientists supporting global warming had the Clinton/Gore mafia not extorted the scientific community by denying their funding. The reality is, Dr. Bill Gray predicted our current weather patterns & temps around 40 years ago. And while all the global warming alarmists got this winter completely wrong, the Farmers Almanac predicted it spot on!!!

Re: “Don't try to mix and match the tacos at Sol Southwest

How dare you not like a restaurant some people like, Mr Moss. Every place should get 5 stars, cause ya know they pay taxes and shit.

While I completely disagree with his opinion of that horrible place called the Wreck, I have heard many echo this writer's comments about Sol.

Re: “Don't try to mix and match the tacos at Sol Southwest

Sol does have a food problem and its one that happens with many restaurants. The owners aren't there all the time to keep the food standards up to par. I know this because we used to eat there about everyday for the first few months, and had met them. You would always see one of the owners walking around making sure things were perfect, and the food was always great! Then maybe 3 or 4 months into business we started noticing the owners weren't around and the food just wasn't the same. I think the bar part of them took over and the food part kind of fell behind. Hope they catch themselves...

Re: “Small Business Chamber head urges city officials to prepare for rising sea levels

Man, this Bowers kid is good. No wonder he's winning awards.

First of all, cool sea level website. It's good to know that we're spending our research dollars on developing the essential tools we'll need for practical decision making.

Secondly, I'm not sure if Paul set up this article with his story last week about the climate change denier speaking at the Citadel or whether it was just a happy coincidence of timing that the Chamber had a meeting with the city on this issue but it worked out brilliantly. In response to the first article I commented:

"So what do we do? [about climate change] Well, in my view, we make plans to adapt to the changes. For us in the Lowcountry, we WILL be impacted by rising sea levels. You better believe that. In 50 years you won't be able to get flood insurance for your current home. Our coastal communities need to have a long-term plan for development"

Lo and behold, a mere couple of days later, this Bowers kid puts out the second article with plenty of fresh and relevant information on the current status of planning and policy development for sea level rise in Charleston.

Good job. Nice article. I'm happy to know that despite all the crazy rhetoric in the media, the government isn't completely asleep at the switch.

Ken Carrington added a lot to each game. He will be missed by many for sure. Good luck Ken.

Re: “Don't try to mix and match the tacos at Sol Southwest

After dining and drinking at SOL several times I am still a little baffled by their menu. And yes part of that confusion is the no mixing and matching on tacos. I work in kitchens, it's just not that hard, but everything I've eaten there has been great (except the prickly pear sauce with the fried chicken sticks, it is just bad) and I am glad they are doing well as it's nice to have a good, solid and reasonable restaurant in Mt. P. I would suggest a condiment tray for the table--some good locally made hot sauces and some classics would be greatly appreciated. I'll be back soon for the prickly pear margarita which is delightful, unlike its cousin the sauce

Re: “Don't try to mix and match the tacos at Sol Southwest

The opinion of one man pushing what's good, bad, right or wrong is totally irrelevant. We get it, so you're unhappy that the restaurant did not give you the taco selection that "you" wanted. Really, to entitle the article based on that point...boo, hoo....
Did the food taste good and was it worth what you paid for it?
What is now SOL was a run down POS building that needed a face lift and a business to house it....good for you SOL!
We are in a crappy economic situation with people of all ages seeking employment.....SOL restaurant opens in Mt P.....good for you SOL!
More importantly for me, each and every visit to the restaurant has resulted in very high standards, food has always been flavorful, fresh and well presented. I have eaten there many times, eaten the steak, (that is said to lack smokiness) and loved it.
What we have here is a case of "Which red wine is good?", the answer being the one that suits your taste buds, the one that you enjoy.
Criticizing a restaurant that is providing great food, awesome beverages, taxes, employment, and entertainment (to name a few) is pointless......nice work Anton Ego, enjoy the rest of Ratattouille!
