FYI- shredded cheese contains additives to prevent it from caking. It's healthier to eat block cheese if you eat cheese. Research is important.

Re: “Halls Chophouse adding 34 seats with addition of new upstairs dining room

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.

Re: “1 Broad St. to become "Upper East Side Waffle House"

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!!!

Re: “1 Broad St. to become "Upper East Side Waffle House"

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.

Re: “1 Broad St. to become "Upper East Side Waffle House"

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.

Re: “We shopped at Mt. Pleasant's new ALDI grocery store so you don't have to

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!

Re: “We shopped at Mt. Pleasant's new ALDI grocery store so you don't have to

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

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.

Re: “1 Broad St. to become "Upper East Side Waffle House"

"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.

Re: “We shopped at Mt. Pleasant's new ALDI grocery store so you don't have to

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. Source: one chatty cashier, the best source for grocery-related gossip.

SCANDAL

Re: “We shopped at Mt. Pleasant's new ALDI grocery store so you don't have to

My Aldi's has an upscale brand "Specially Selected" which has specialty items for the people who can afford it!! I have also found that Aldi's has a lot of organic food items for which I am thankful. As for bags and boxes, bring your own reusable bags (I have several that fold up and fit in my purse and keep several in the back of my car for when I go to the store unexpectedly). There are far too many plastic bags floating around in our environment which look trashy and damage wildlife. I am appalled that some people think this way. We all need to be more aware of sustainability and I applaud Aldi's that they don't supply bags. I wish more grocery stores would follow suit!!
