Re: “Palmetto State Armory is arming South Carolina with its own take on the AR-15

"The company started with him, his wife, his brother, and a high schooler packaging everything," Ruonala says. "Now we have over 300 employees with over 100 veterans or active-duty."

"McCallum started his company the same year Obama was elected president"

Sounds like he's done pretty well during Obama's reign of terror.

Re: “The One-Pot wonder that is Raccoon Stew

This is very sad, would you have a dead lamb hanging out of a stew pot for lamb stew?

"he discovered he had TBI, traumatic brain injury"

Definitely sounds like someone who should be armed to the teeth.

Re: “Palmetto State Armory is arming South Carolina with its own take on the AR-15

Sadly you should read the statistics. Cars kill more people every day then guns do in months. Hammers and baseball bats kill more then guns. What you are going by is the sensationalist biased media reporting.

Porsche has killed more people then you would believe, DR Porsche got his start in the Aero industry designing planes for the Germans.

Only thing is, Porsches don't kill people. I appreciate his American dream and the hard work he did to accomplish it. Other than that, he is just mass producing unnecessary & powerful artillery. Too many "accidents" too many lives lost in the name of self protection. America.

Re: “A is for Ally: Susan Cohen

Sorry but no matter what i will never consider A for ally, only for asexual. There is no need for the A for ally to be there, the whole human population needs to accept the LGBTQQIA+ community. If we had a community for women we wouldn't have something in the title to say "and men who also agree with a lady's rights" because it's common sense, no need to include anyone outside the community.

Re: “How and where to imbibe with your kids in tow

So trollslayer - every restaurant serves alcohol, so you are saying that people with children cannot go out to dinner with their children anywhere ever? That is ludicrous. So do you just lock your children in their bedrooms until they turn 18? Have you ever been to a restaurant in Charleston? There are kids in most restaurants that are not high-end at some point during the day/night. I go out to eat with my well-behaved 16-month-old all of the time (before her bedtime, of course).

Re: “How and where to imbibe with your kids in tow

"So if the beer lovers don't like a place there is no way it can be good for anyone else because, ya know, they told you so and they know more than you do."

I specifically said that I like Morgan Creek. However, it doesn't fit into the article, and the article doesn't fit into the beer issue. Simple and polite criticism.

Re: “How and where to imbibe with your kids in tow

My suggestion? PBR at the Recovery Room - keeping it eternally classy in Chucktown. #2 in the nation for PBR sales and trying to hit #1. Best time ever for the entire Brewski family. Bring the wee ones, we can start a kiddie mosh pit and wear the little bastards out. Throw them in the pit upon arrival and fish them out when leaving, all tuckered out and ready for slumber - just make sure to take the right one. Agreeing with factory connection on the tiny angry drunks - true that. I'm great with kids (can't you tell.) Just a suggestion.

Re: “How and where to imbibe with your kids in tow

chrishaire you have to remember that people who like craft beer are much more intelligent than the average person and if you are not an expert on craft beer you are really not able to understand what they are talking about. That is why their beer costs $9 for one and yours cost the same for a twelve pack. So if the beer lovers don't like a place there is no way it can be good for anyone else because, ya know, they told you so and they know more than you do.

Re: “How and where to imbibe with your kids in tow

brewengineer- I fully agree with your posts. Completely hits the nail on the head with how out of place this is. Also nice observation on the fact that only one beer writer was involved. No matter how great Timmons is, he is still exactly one person as pointed out. It looks like an effort to try and borrow off Timmons/CHSBeer's cred to put up something out of place like this.

Re: “Thanks to Revelry and Tradesman, the Lowcountry's brewery boom continues to, well, boom

The more, the merrier I say. I'm looking forward to Ghost Monkey's opening. I happened to be at a party where one of their brewers did a sampling for the guests and they had some very, very good recipes.

This article just seems completely out of place in the beer issue, imo.

Re: “How and where to imbibe with your kids in tow

"Brew,

You beer geeks are as insufferable as Civil War re-encactors.

Timmons is the preeminent beer writer in town. He's also an extremely busy man, and we're grateful for his contributions.

And just so you know, this wasn't the "craft beer" issue. It was the beer issue. And maybe you know this and maybe you don't, but a shit ton of people want to drink bud and coors and the like ... and in a frosty mug no less.

Lighten up, Francis."

I am not a beer geek. I am a drinker who enjoys many different beverages. However, your Beer Issue had this right in the headline: Beer boom continues
Beer boom insinuates craft beer industry, and every other article is focused on craft beer. I am sure your readers are waiting with baited breath to hear where they can go around town to get an ice cold bud light. Next issue: Best places in Charleston to buy a Diet Pepsi. Morgan Creek isn't even a good choice as a child friendly place to drink period. If the issue was suggesting places to meet cougars, then maybe you would have a point. Maybe you should lighten up and learn how to take criticism professionally and politely.

Re: “How and where to imbibe with your kids in tow

I was all ready to throw the BS flag on Trollslayer again, but then Abigail Wu pointed out that Chuck E. Cheese serves booze. I look for every excuse possible to NOT go to The Cheese, and I'll take what I can get.

I will second Pigbot on the tantrum issue: all parents should have the level of respect for others that if your kid throws a tantrum you need to get them out of the restaurant at least long enough to calm down if not throwing in the "I'll take it to go" towel altogether. The kid in front of people is the ambassador for all kids, and while that is a pain it is part of the obligations of parenting. I've stood in the rain while my food got cold during an extended time-out enough times to know that it works and it is what you're supposed to do.

They're like angry drunks sometimes, these kids.

Re: “How and where to imbibe with your kids in tow

Ahh

Where should I go drink with my Kids in tow??

What a Charleston questions, huh?!

Can't be a responsible parent, (best zombie voice) : must have alcohol, must have festival.

Ever heard their is a time & place for everything?? I'm sure if you just wait long enough the beer freaks will build a "beer garden" (wtf) right next to your neighborhood. Just wait for it.....

Shallow as the city papers INETERNET QUEREY!

I apologize, I must be dehydrated. Time for my bottle.... Now where is that New Belgium....



SO SALTY

Re: “How and where to imbibe with your kids in tow

Morgan Creek? Really? I thought this was the beer issue. I love Morgan Creek for a place to grab a quick bite before hitting the water. It is also a great place for oysters in the winter. But it is not a place to enjoy beer, with or without kids. Poor craft selection and mainly tailors to the bud/coors drinkers. It is interesting that this beer issue only utilizes one of your actual beer writers. Slacking, CCP!
