Re: “New ad from McDonald’s UK provides a startling glimpse into South Carolina life

I remember seeing signs for the various states of "American burgers" at Maccies a few years ago. Each and every one looked so hilariously off-base, I wondered it if it weren't on purpose. I haven't laughed so much at a sandwich since I was taught to pronounce bologna.

Re: “Summer etiquette from an enlightened caveman

It's also worth comparing an adult enjoying a beverage to a baby/toddler having to enjoy theirs under a blanket. It's freaking hot under there.
Mothers can't overheat their babies just so absolutely no one sees some boob skin. We'll try to be discreet sometimes, but come on. It's too hot for a blanket in the summer.

Needs lump crab and cocktail sauce (or pulled pork) for a South Carolina stack.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: Our New Business Mentality

I think everyone knows what Soylent [green] is made of by now. :D

I keep hearing about this Citadel portrait yet no one places it in their post, what's up with that? Was the screen shot too difficult? I guess I need to watch this episode, but the recaps from here and Island Packet are too much fun to read!

Good job as per the usual! BZ

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: Our New Business Mentality

Not sure the audience knows this..I could not believe when I saw Georgette Mosbacher!! She is a huge socialite in NYC! I mean big! She is a business woman, political activist, Chairman of the Green Beret Foundation. She raises money for many charities. She is a class act. She bought the cosmetic firm La Prairie. A very expensive line. But fantastic. You cannot get it in Charleston. The reason She and Patricia said if you mention guns at a Manhattan party, is because they are all anti gun up there.....these gals are true republicans. Georgette raises money for the GOP. I think she is fabulous. I Know of her because I am from NYC and have followed her from the NYC Newspapers through the years. I love both those dames.....

You think anyone knew what you meant by "soylent"????

Not easy running a food business. Big space. What a shame.

Re: “Finding the humanity in Waiting for Godot

This is a heady play. Not for everyone....Sorry to say, but this is Charleston. I was taken to this play ages ago by an actor. But my parents were into the arts as well and knew of this play, so i knew what I was in for. I'm from NYC. Personally, most men will fall asleep. Unless they are into the arts. Women, maybe different. I had seen this play at The Public Theater in the Village. A Joe Papp production. It was a long time ago, but it was with famous people. So it was a great production. With a play like this, they better have good actors....

Re: “Pancito & Lefty's unique flavors will delight with a portions-to-price adjustment

Totally concur with your assessment. As native Texans, we show up whenever a new Mexican joint appears--and we live in the neighborhood. Our biggest complaint was the mere handful of cold chips provided with our guacamole, and that the grasshopper salt overpowered the guac and made it too salty. And for $8, the portion was very small. Also had the vampiro, which was too much tortilla for the amount of filling. My meat was better than yours, I think, but not enough filling to warrant $14. 2 people, one margarita, 2 entrees, and a shared guacamole cost $48. That's a lot for lunch.

Re: “Summer etiquette from an enlightened caveman

I have a question for your legal eagle buddy. While at a Golden Corral, I witnessed a 'young person' stick a chicken leg under the wonderful flow of chocolate at the chocolate fountain, place it in his mouth to lick the chocolate off the salty friend chicken leg, and then reinsert the chick piece under the flow of chocolate for a flavor refill, doing this several times before the leg gave up the meat leaving him only a bone which he promptly let fall to the floor. Does this constitute a 'double dip'? I think not since the dip technically flowed over the chicken rather than the chicken being dipped into a stagnant pond of chocolate. I realize that the chocolate is then pumped back up to the top to continue its flow to the bottom once again, but the legal point is that the chicken was not dipped? But I defer to his legal knowledge.

Re: “Smith Street Pizza (formerly Norm's) shutters after three months in business

The menu change was definitely the problem. Norm's was a treasure because it delivered a large variety at a low price point. Maybe not the best food, but cheap and fast and lots of options arriving right at your door.

I ordered from Norm's at least once a month, and noticed immediately that Smith Street's menu lacked anything other than pizza and a few hoagies- something I can get from a variety of other places.
