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 :)
really? oysters in August?? obviously you've never eaten an oyster in the Lowcountry before, or at Bowen's in the past six months.
Re:Bowens Island, local oysters aren't in season, but their fried shrimp are pretty damn good too.
I'll probably let others attend. Let's hope it is good for the local economy.
please be careful id been taking it for ages had a fit one night a pretty violent one ended up in hozzie bit my tongue an frightened my friends! so caution guys
Surfing evokes the passion from the inner most recesses of your soul and takes you to a place of complete balance. Surfing brings meaning to a world full of chaos. Surfing takes you to a place of nature, truth, adventure, challenge, serenity, excitement, privacy and love. You rather surf than eat. You rather surf than sleep. You rather surf than celebrate a holiday. Surfing is a way of life. How do I know this? Cuff. How do I feel this? Cuff. How do I understand this? Cuff. Sometimes when we feel so strongly about something and that passion is awakened, we speak without looking past the end of our own nose i.e. a usually eloquent speaker is made to sound like a rambling cluster fuck i.e. a usually eloquent speaker's words are taken out of context. Slowdown, you crazy kids, and take a journey through time with me. Cuff began surfing as a kid at Isle of Palms, attempted to surf at Washout, was cussed at, his friend was injured, learned a lesson, went back to surfing at Isle of Palms, gained more experienced, and returned to Washout to become the surfer he is today, occasionally taking in the surfing of other countries. He took and takes surfing very seriously- hence the passion. He went through the awkward steps of a beginner- hence the passion. He fell before he "walked"- hence the passion. Ah, the passion.
Have you ever heard of the proverbial saying- "If you can't bark with the big dogs, get off the porch"? Once upon a time, I had my ass handed to me at Washout when I attempted to surf-not by a surfer then, but instead, by a wave. It was amusing, frightening, but amusing. Needless to say, later, I had my ass handed to me again by a surfer, Cuff. I learned a lesson- I'm not worthy, I'm not worthy! Haha. Apparently, that particular porch just wasn't my style. Another thing that I have learned- surfers have a great sense of humor. So, you crazy kids, chuck it up to lame writing, an overzealous surfer who was probably having a bad day, passion and a fabulous photo. You guys all speak the same language. I am not a surfer. (Actually, I prefer looking for sharks teeth at Edisto.)
Why not just buy a travel trailer?
"More concerning is Clarkie's effect on the threads here and any discussion of actual issues."
It's what a good troll/spammer is best at and he's one of the best.
Santorum came in second in the Republican primary. That would indicate that very many Republicans view their party more as Clarkie does than as you do, Art.
Or as Hunter does, for that matter.
Love thy neighbor also means don't tread on thy neighbor. Allow thy neighbor to live thy neighbor's life.
More concerning is Clarkie's effect on the threads here and any discussion of actual issues. Santorum is a footnote in the 2012 primary campaign.
My effect on either of them is obviously zero. I'll waste my time in other diversions.
Drift, its about your soul and salvation. its called "Love" thy neighbor. amen.
