Ima Oldman--actually it's neither favoritism nor hypocrisy, but fact. The difference is that McCain is from Greenville originally and lives there still. Members of BOH live in the Lowcountry. http://www.edwin.com/biography.html
In before "list fails without"....
You call Band of Horses a local band, but say Edwin McCain doesn't count because he's from Greenville. Personal favoritism or hypocrisy?
Charleston Coffee Exchange is amazing. I hope to try some of the others.
Slightly off-subject, but for students from "off" bicyclists are required by law to follow the same laws as motor vehicles.......... now if only Chas P.D. would enforce it more strongly......
Driftaway - Charleston has already tried a bike-sharing program. The infamous "Yellow Bikes" all disappeared completely after only a few days, never to be seen again.
Please consult Mr. Cole's comment for the reason why.
Anyone considering Trident Tech should take a look at this guide made by me, a former student. It has food, housing, hotel, and much more info: http://www.tridenttechnicalcollege.org
Yo Burrito also offers live most Monday nights from The South Carolina Broadcasters and during some Friday nights from various other local artists. Shows are FREE and usually during happy hour, so drinks are SUPER cheap!
Check out the calendar @ http://www.yoburrito.com for all the details
I think hipster chic moved away from thrift stores about ten years ago, once it stopped being just the "poor" kids being bohemian.
Can't go wrong with the Goodwill stores and Community Thrift on Rivers has amazing deals.
Charlotte is implementing a pilot program of bike sharing. With the large student and visitor population downtown I think this could be very popular here.
I'll remember this the next time I want to go to a coffee shop to drink beer (yeah, right). Just like the next time I want to go to a tavern and get a manicure.
Not even a slight mention of the rampant theft issue pervasive in the city?
@thewearyfox Bummer about the shrimp tacos! They really were a heck of a good deal. And yes, the water there is pricy. My hat's off to you for bringing your own gallon jug.
Well let me catch you up on a couple of things Paul from my experience at the PGA Championship's first round of play yesterday (Thursday). First: NO 3 for $10 shrimp tacos available. Instead they were fish tacos ("sorry, weve run out of shrimp sir") and they were outrageously priced at $10 each. What seemed to be the best deal for food when comparing price vs quantity was the chicken fingers and fries. You get 4 fingers and a good amount of fries for $9.50. Second: Bottled water is $3 for a small, yes small, bottle; Gatorade is $4.50 for a small bottle as well. I was applauded by the inspection staff at the gate for bringing a sealed semi-frozen 1-gallon bottle of distilled water (99 cent pre-purchase) that lasted me the entire day's event. And lastly, the best place for viewing, if you prefer not to walk the course, was atop the bleachers overlooking the 18th green. And I do mean atop....the top bench provided a constant cool breeze from the ocean while having a great view of the final hole (second shot to the green and all chipping and putting....VERY FEW greens were hit in regulation and few birdies were made on the 500+ yard par 4 18th.
Ive been to Hominy Grill three times and while the service is great the food is blah. Simply underwhelming
Who would of thought so much was going on way out here? Eat your hearts out the rest of you.
I've been reading everything in the local press about the PGA. Maybe I missed something. But, this take on the whole thing is the best piece I've read. Great job Allyson. The quotes from Fisher, Bocchio, Bloomer, Morrison, Wright and Wetter make for interesting insights as to what the players will face this week. This piece works because casual weekend players can relate.
Golf is generally boring.
plex- note the last sentence in the Bowens Island blurb :)
