48 seconds in is one of Hollywood™'s great Baguette Moments:
I have inspected the EVO baguette at goat. sheep. cow.
It looked delicious and impressive. I was able to pinch one of them; it had just the right amount of give.
I am very happy to see Egan's Oast finally coming together, and wish the guys luck on the building overhaul. I can wait to have some food and brews at a great brewpub.
Of all the vast dining selections in this area, we do seem to be under-served in the German, or more specifically Bavarian category. Gene's comes close, but more of a Wisconsin German than the old-country standard.
Also, did someone use Itzakaya Ramen as an example of how up on things we are? That restaurant was more fleeting than internet celebrity.
The gardens I've been to served only German beer and food.
What is the difference between a beer garden and a bar with a patio?
Ima why should the brewers have to have a requirement to have insurance when bars and restaurants, who have no specified limit on what they can sell, are not required to carry any at all? Also, I doubt that you will be able to find anyone in the alcohol business that is not pretty well insured. The 64 oz amount is not so that they can give out 64 ounces of samples during a 20 minute tour it is so that they can set up a bar and serve pints just like brewers do all over the country. Also, remember that is the maximum. When I go to brewery tours outside of the state I usually have two, maybe three pints at the most even though they typically have no limit on what I can purchase. The NoDa brewery in Charlotte and Pisgah brewery in Black Mountain are two great examples of really cool tasting rooms attached to their brewing operations, one fancy and classy, the other a little grungy but still cool. New Belgium (Fat Tire, etc) wouldn't even consider SC for an East Coast location because of the screwed up laws we have around brewers.
I watched the South Carolina Senate Judiciary Committee video as well and was not impressed by much of the misinformed commentary by our representatives. The bottom line is that we shouldn't hold breweries to a different / higher standard than any other establishment that serves alcohol. Having said that, the 16oz tasting (free) + 48oz additional on-site consumption (cost) wouldn't prevent people from trying more than 4 beers. Nobody said the additional 48oz had to be sold in pints. Basically, they could give away 4 4oz samples and sell up to 12 more 4oz glasses if they wanted to. It's actually better (from a tourism perspective) that the breweries can give away up to 16oz without having to charge. The liability insurance requirement is the real kicker - hopefully Sen. Bennett will address that absurdity...
Why haven't beer gardens caught on sooner here? The weather is ideal for them damn near year-round.
This is a trend I fully support!
I prefer DUMBO (Directly Up Morrison By Overpass)
there also going to the beer garden going to into book herbs and
spices location on the corner come spring.we ve humor of one
slated for mt pleasant near red drum
Glad you have relocated by to Charleston! Looking forward to enjoying Pusser's Rum around town ;-)
I think many people not as bothered by the name (although it's dumb) as the are at the arrogance it takes for the City Paper editorial staff to think that they can or have the right to arbitrarily change the names of neighborhoods to fit their conception of what the neighborhood should be. "WE'RE in this neighborhood, therefore it's the 'creative corridor'! Therefore it needs a new trendy name! Ergo, NoMo!"
It just rubs people the wrong way.
@BergBRO, Macaroon Boutique's baguettes were the best in my opinion but the last time I popped in the kind woman behind the register informed me that they no longer produced baguettes. Great article!!!
And the Hush "Piggies" are amazing (Grocery)... Crispy-fried nuggets of Geechee Boy cornmeal with bits of Chorizo- heavenly when dipped into the side of avocado crema. Great combo of flavors, textures and temperatures and godawfully tasty-- like crack for fat boys!
Soft shells 3-ways at The Grocery is outstanding- pricy, but worth every morsel!
The name is fine...just premature because that area (morrison dr, right?) is currently an industrial wasteland.
The "AHWYCSHFATUTO" post cracked me up...I live there, but it's a block from Hampton Park so I can stand it. I'm all for keeping the good stuff on the peninsula, but I'd rather see it happen in this area where there's actually a sizable wealthy neighborhood to the west but few good businesses for them to enjoy, and slums just to the east.
Like plain ole Morrison myself.
What I would like even more is an indie coffeehouse in the neighborhood. With ample parking,
Amelie's in charlotte's NoDa artsy hood is a 24/7 French bakery/coffee house and they are an institution up there.
A similar operation near the the royal/santis/moose strip would do slammin biz I think.
We need a bar alternative and a community hub.
Heck lets call Amelie's and get one down here.
I'm not sure where you're getting the idea that it's getting more and more popular Stephanie. I have never in my life heard someone say "NoMo" or read it anywhere other than the pages of City Paper.
It doesn't even make a lot of sense. Morrison is only, what, a mile long? Do we really need to divide it into "North Morrison" and "South Morrison"?
Why not just call it the Upper East Side? That at least accurately describes where it is.
