Re: “Annie's Bistro is the real thing

Lovely review. They are most certainly missed here in Bethesda, Maryland. Look out for her seasonal specialties - her white bean soup is to die for (take one to go and put it in the freezer for a sick day, it is an amazing remedy!) and also the cassoulet. Ooohhh, the cassoulet. They let their customers know on social media when they start the preparation - which takes a few days to perfect. If you happen to dine there one evening when it is on the menu, go play the lottery that day as you just hit the jackpot! Miss you!! Xoxo Leslie

Re: “City unveils new late-night ordinance

How about a ban on 6+ story hotels on upper king? That monstrosity going up sure doesn't ring of preservation to me. A quaint little bar that serves local veggies and over priced craft beer would have been a much better fit. Heehaw.

Re: “City unveils new late-night ordinance

If takes 3 years for the Department of Planning, Preservation, and Sustainability to figure out how to proceed and plan, the city is in bad shape. 3 years is punitive and in my opinion it's Joe Riley's way of still getting his way under another subterfuge. 12 to 18 months should be enough time for that Department to get their act together. If it isn't, change the board members.

Oceans might not be rising. But the Charleston area could be sinking. Some roads have over 18" of asphalt.

Re: “Scott Shor of Edmund's Oast reacts to Best New Restaurant nom from Bon Appetit

Scott is an all around nice guy. The picture was meant to be amusing and it is. Scott has worked really hard for the success he is now achieving - no slacking from him, so congrats to him and everyone at Edmund's Oast. He has accomplished what many in the F & B industry hope for but never quite reach and he has done it through unfaltering dedication and hard work. Plus he is one handsome bald and bearded rascal in that blazer.

Re: “New interactive map shows effects of sea level rise on Charleston

You brought up the influence of money. You said u could smell bullshit. This is about billions of dollars. Yes climatologists on both sides are getting their shares. The energy corporations make sure they have their guys and the research universities make sure they get their share.
Good to see you agree with the hypocrisy of Al Gore, but i think your underestimating his influence on the world of climate science. Especially the general public, where he makes hundreds of thousands for an appearance and people flock to see him give speeches.

Re: “A short history of the Holy City's march toward homegrown beer

Backstage Deli had several locations in town. From the early 80s and for more than ten years the locally owned chain specialized in simple but well made deli sandwichs and an extensive offering of beer. They carried more than 100 different beers from all over the nation and world. You could buy sixes to go.
Simply saying that the local love of good beer did not begin when some dude moved here from Michigan worked at arizona's and figured he would show us the way. umm ..sure thanks.

Re: “Local activist headed to Ferguson

I fight authority, Authority always wins. I been doing it since I was a young kid
I come out grinnin. I fight authority, Authority always wins. So I call up my preacher
I say, "Give me strength for Round 5.". He said , "You don't need no strength, you need to grow up son." I said, "Growing up leads to growing old and then to dying
"And dying to me don't sound like all that much fun."..... Keep on fighting kid, they may always win but at least you fought a good couple of rounds before you check out.

Re: “A short history of the Holy City's march toward homegrown beer

Yeesssss. Liquid Gold. Weight Prob from beer = elastic waist pants - sweats - yoga outfits - always a good solution. Sweats and Yoga outfits give everybody the impression that I am trying to work out. More breweries please. More pale ales please. Like the proverbial bear - I am packing it on for my winter slumber. When I am trying to lose weight food is always the first thing to go.

Re: “CofC grads start solar-powered golf cart taxi service on Folly

If not for the live oaks shading my roof, I would cover it in solar cells and buy a plug in hybrid (replacing my conventional hybrid), and pay nothing in fuel costs to buzz around town.
Yeah, I know, the solar panels aren't free either but in the long run I suspect that would be cheaper than gas.

Re: “A short history of the Holy City's march toward homegrown beer

"Alcohol is energy (calories). It doesn't matter what type of beer it comes in, more alcohol means more calories."
Of course. But beer is usually less than 10% alcohol, and there are plenty of ways to reduce calories in it.
For instance, I'm looking at a 16 oz. Miller Lite bottle, only 96 calories.
Compare that to this craft beer.
Also, in mixed drinks usually only about 100 calories from alcohol, the rest is from the mixers.
So if I drink beer it's light beer, and if I drink liquor it's with low cal mixer, such as diet coke.
Oops, now how did the lid get off of that bottle?

Re: “Local activist headed to Ferguson

Hopefully, this agitator / instigator wannabe will pack every pair of skinny jeans he owns along with his iPad holding a digital download of "The Communist Manifesto", then hop in some comrade's Prius never to be seen in Charleston, SC again.

Re: “A short history of the Holy City's march toward homegrown beer

Most drinkers of craft beer, from my experience, like drinkers of better wine are not drinking to excess to get plastered. Not to say that they don't on occasion but when you hit a certain point you can't really taste and enjoy what it is you are spending so much extra money on.

Re: “Local activist headed to Ferguson

This has nothing to do with race except to the people making it about that. It has to do with a misguided kid breaking the law, probably being scared that he was going to get caught and attacking a police officer who ended up with the worst possible outcome. More black people need to worry about how to get their kids to stop putting themselves in a position that they might end up dead instead of rioting against police and looting businesses that have nothing to do with what happened.

Like what happened here with Denzel Curnell and in Florida with Trayvon Martin all of these kids are dead because of their own illegal actions that put them in a life threatening situation that ended up killing them. Based on what has come out Brown was in the middle of the street and attacked the officer who eventually shot him, Curnell acted in a manner that made it go from a simple hello to the officer being threatened and a struggle that ended up in his suicide, Martin attacked Zimmerman instead of just walking home and all of them are dead.

These are all kids that were not necessarily pillars of the community but probably could have been turned in the right direction if the folks protesting would blame the individuals responsible and not the people drug into the situation because these kids did something wrong. And a simple hint, the people responsible were not the police officers (or in Martin's case the fake one) and race was not the issue that ended up causing their premature deaths.
