Re: “After 24 years on Market Street, Wild Wing Cafe says goodbye on Wednesday

Why don't they just tear down every single building downtown and put up hotels instead.

You might also recall the 50 plus years of nightclubs above Wild Wings including Level 2 and Purple Tree.

Re: “How John Lewis gets his Texas Hot Guts sausages to snap

The meats here are fantastic. I don't usually get sides when I do BBQ, so I can't comment on them. But I will say the meat is tender and moist. A previous reviewer was rather harsh on the place, but it doesn't sound like he had an open mind based on his comments. It sounded like a revenge review ( unless perhaps the staff was exceptionally rude to him, but he made no mention of that) designed to turn people away because he ain't frum 'round here. I have had his brisket, turkey, ribs, and hot guts in Austin as well. The food hasn't changed and is top notch.

Re: “There's a new wine movement in California, and it's all about the terroir

I also prefer old wines for I'm used to it. I would love to have a taste with these new terroir and will compare it with other wines to know its difference. Nice article David.

Re: “North Charleston's only soup kitchen urgently needs your support

Across the street on Mondays, Project Streets Outreach serves lunch to the homeless. On Saturdays, the Lowcountry Herald magazine serves lunch to the homeless. So, we have many volunteers working to help the unfortunate in that impoverished community. The hopes and prayers of the people at the Lowcountry Herald are that those unfortunate people find their way back to self-sufficiency, which is why the Herald hires homeless people.

Re: “Xiao Bao Biscuit owners' new restaurant will not serve Asian food

@DaleS: I'm going out on a limb and guessing 430 Meeting Street from the caption.

Of course when I first read the headline, I thought they meant XBB had a new owner and they were ditching Asian cuisines. Mornings, man.

Re: “The bulgogi and banchan are worth the trip to 843 Korean BBQ & Sushi House

This place is capital L Legit. If you like actual Korean food (as in, what you are served in Korea) then go here. I am happy we have such a restaurant in CHS and I've been twice in the past ten days since first trying it.

Re: “The Charleston restaurant staffing crisis has reached DEFCON 1

That's is truth and for a lot of other professions as well. I am from he same time period late 90s- 2002. Moves back last year and BAM. Shocking the prices for housing and food ETC. Jobs I used to work for still paying the same. How do people do it! We do well but still struggle to pay for evenrything. Like NYC PRICES. Crazy

Re: “DeSano Pizza Bakery shutters Stuart Street location indefinitely

Well dang! We recently went there after having it at the airport. I thought it was the best pizza in Charleston! They do need a better location, though.

Re: “The Charleston restaurant staffing crisis has reached DEFCON 1

I moved to the west coast where servers are paid as much as 12.50 an hour plus tips (most places here 100% tip share) There are just as many worthy restaurants here, they balance with the food trucks and the pop ups, but you know why? Because servers and other F&B workers make livable wages. They stay put in the restaurant that fits them. It really is a pretty great set-up. I wish Charleston would understand the value of that.

Re: “The Charleston restaurant staffing crisis has reached DEFCON 1

I have always felt servers should at least be paid minimum wage. TIPS should never have become 'mandatory' for a server to make enough to survive on. Charge me for the food, and if the service warrants it, I will tip.

Re: “The Charleston restaurant staffing crisis has reached DEFCON 1

Is this more in the city or rural/outlying areas of charleston? How would you get good "city servers" out there?

Re: “The Charleston restaurant staffing crisis has reached DEFCON 1

But restaurant owners are not paying the correct amount with these skeleton crews. Law states that servers to be paid 2.13 hour while serving. If doing other duties they must pay true minimum wage of 7.50 I believe. But owners are saying this is fill work. It is not and still many employees are doing it because employers say so. There really is no resason not to pay an actual fair wage. I know friends of mine who own restaurants in other parts of the country pay 15 or more per hour, they have removed the tips from being accepted at their restaurants. Or some still use tips and pay a 10 or 12 dollar wage plus tips. They are making money and have less food waste, theft, and happy employees

Re: “Blues Burger Joint knows what's up with a steak sandwich

Surprised to hear such poor thoughts on the fries, granted we all know sometimes the fries don't always come out the way we like them, but I love their fries, especially when you opt to add some pimento cheese on top! Those things are delicious. They've also added a salad and are in the process of expanding the menu I hear, so I'm sure there are soon to be more veggie friendly options. Gotta try the Fowl Play chicken sandwich (my fave) and the Cuban as well!
