Oh pleeeeeease tell me that there will be a dress code requiring we all have our ankles and wrists covered at all times!
Thanks Michelle. I thought the same thing. Make mine a bourbon, neat.
Well, that is something for someone to dump a bunch of money into that they don't need any more. However, I'm the last person to know what works in F&B and certainly the moneyed, female debutante barfly set.
i do hope the menu will have pictures, as my father and husband have never permitted me to learn to read.
Wow. Nothing about this sounds enticing.
Oh Michelle... bless your heart
Thanks Michelle! At first I thought she was being sarcastic!
If you call us the weaker sex, it gives others the permission to think we actually are. #feminism101 P.S. I like craft beer
Best fried pickles and chicken & biscuits I've ever had and I grew up in SC!
And how dare you shop on the penninsula, eat at any of the fine dining establishments around market street, east bay street, meeting street. all of which is on the backs of slaves. Get over it, move on, go hide in your safe place. You should be ashamed for even living here, how disgraceful.
More leftist lunacy.
"You filmed a show in Washington DC? HOW DARE YOU?! Slave labor was used to build much of it and it was named after a DEMON SLAVE OWNER!!"
Any place that's had human habitation for a millennia or so, and many with less, had slavery present. Some still do. The first law in North America specifically legalizing slavery was, I believe, written in Massachusetts. Was Yankee slavery kind and gentle and ok? Why no histrionics over former slave sites in Brooklyn?
What, you mean the rest of the US isn't full of monuments to slavers and plantation owners, so much a part of the social fabric that no one even gives it a second thought? Huh. The next thing you're going to tell me is that the bad guys didn't win the American Civil War!
Hey all, this is a fascinating thread...it's not about victimhood, any plantation needs to acknowledge who died to build it and many, not all, completely ignore it. Call enslaved people 'servants', as if they had any choice at all. US slavery was a terrible thing, check http://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/inside-americas-auschwitz-180958647/

There will always be people who would rather be victims, even by proxy. Slaves were a way of life in the past, be they white, black or otherwise. You don't see some races begging for victimhood. If you want to do something about modern slavery, Boone Hall is far from it. There is nowhere they could have filmed this in Charleston that slaves ... some owned by blacks...didn't walk.
I think the hardest part of watching that episode (which I couldn't even finish) was watching Padma asking the young man how he felt being on the plantation. I wonder how she would have answered the question, had they been filming at a rice paddy in India and someone asked her how she felt?
Boone hall has hosted the Low Country Oyster Festival for decades (34 years ?) and it has been frequented by all races of oyster lovers the entire time. Now some are offended because they cooked oysters at Boone Hall? Stop looking for things that offend you and just enjoy the south charm that is South Carolina and Charleston TODAY. It is our past that made our culinary roots and it has taken off from there.
At least he was upfront and honest, which is how Charleston is as a whole. We know our history and that some of it not always pleasant, pretty and shiny. You have to take the good with the bad in the history of every place in the world to understand culture and how society has moved forward. Dwelling in the past is not learning from it. Take the lessons learned and create a better future.
Any native coastal South Carolinian knows that A) it's normal and you eat them and B) they're good luck.
Sadly, this article is necessary.
i caught and sold wild mussel for years, and if the pea crabs were more than a few percent in the mussels, they didn't want them. Something about a a crab that looks like a tick with eyes that really freaks people out.
Casey Thompson, are you sure you have your facts straight? She lives in Napa Valley but is executive chef at The Inn of Ranch Santa Fe in San Diego.????
