Re: “Why Thomas Ravenel lashed out at Proof's Craig Nelson

Sometimes boorish behavior and bad manners for many years gets a comeuppance. Nobody likes a nasty drunk - especially the bartenders. J Chris has provided us with a great map that should be posted at the Visitors center. Mr. Nelson is a gentleman, Mr. Ravenel never was.

Re: “Has Boxcar Betty's mastered the chicken sandwich?

I was going to try it, but after seeing reviews I think not, especially if the stuff is greasy

Re: “Why Thomas Ravenel lashed out at Proof's Craig Nelson

K, no need to apologize. Let's get on the same page this year. In fact, I'll even help you out. I have a hot tip that City of Charleston Finance Director Donna Emerson recently got into a spat with Stars Rooftop & Grill Room management over how many stars can actually be seen from the restaurant's rooftop.

Follow that lead my child and you'll be on your way to the top of Charleston's food & bev writing scene. You may even be the next Hanna Raskin....'s intern.

Re: “Why Thomas Ravenel lashed out at Proof's Craig Nelson

Ron,
You are so right. I'd get much more out of life by following your approach of commenting on everything we publish rather than writing it.
Thanks for the help.
K

Re: “Why Thomas Ravenel lashed out at Proof's Craig Nelson

You and Barna have been complicit in glamorizing this manchild's behavior for years. And now we need a column about a pissing contest between irrelevant people arguing about something totally pointless? Do you ever stop to think maybe you should be doing something else with your life?

Re: “Charles Towne Fermentory now open in Avondale

CORRECTION: It's not the old junk n jive location (that's next door to Oak barrel). It's the old Andilinis "corporate headquarters" and most recently warehouse for Charleston's ahoe Company.

This may be the most self-unaware white persony thing I've ever read - and I've been reading City Paper for many years.

Philip must have been served some sour grapes the last time he went to a rich white investor-owned restaurant.

Yes Vanessa, let's open a Peruvian, an Ethiopian and a Burmese Restaurant that will each be destined to fail within a couple of months just for your deserving palate.

Re: “10 Charleston restaurant trends that need to end with 2016

Please tell me about any local coffee shops that stay open into the night like Starbucks? The only ones I know of nowadays close their doors pretty early. I'd happily support local coffee shops over corporate ones, but I'm having a difficult time finding ones that fit my schedule.

Re: “10 Charleston restaurant trends that need to end with 2016

You are eating at the wrong places. When you buy a glass of wine you are not just paying for that glass. You are also paying for the electric bill, the storage space required, the employees that order the wine pour and wash your dirty glass which also includes the water bill. You are also confusing what restaurants should stop doing as to what customers should stop doing. And if you think all shrimp and grits are the same you absolutely do not know what you are talking about. If you plan on coming to my workplace you better make a reservation at least 6-8 weeks out during the summer make it 12. You don't get that kind of business for serving average food. As far as recognition for teachers doctors and scientists there are awards and recognition you just choose to write about something else and not them.

10 New Year Resolutions for the Pompous Hipsters Writers at the CCP

1. Update the wardrobe, you look the fool.
2. Less kale, less weed, fewer cigarettes.
3. No more click-bait nutcase lib opinion pieces.
4. Stop trying to play an instrument, you're not musical, you can't sing either.
5. Lose the beard.
6. Not everyone who thinks you're an ass is a Trump supporter.
7. You don't actually speak for most blacks, gays, or the disenfranchise, you just think you do. The majority find you annoying and douchey.
8. Your lifestyle is not unique, it's just odd, and nobody really cares.
9. Best not to be uber judgmental when you live in a tiny far left bubble in the reddest of red States.
10. Find a real writing job. Good luck with this one.

Re: “10 Charleston restaurant trends that need to end with 2016

I think everyone should take to go. It's wasteful NOT to. Even if you don't eat it, give it to someone in need in the street. When I was a server it used to frustrate me so much that people
Would take two bites if a meal and leave he rest behind. THAT is wasteful. That's the only thing I staunchly disagree about.
