Re: “Thanks to Sarah Palin, we now know that Hunter Thompson faked his own death

Luv this promo! It's brilliant how she gently tweaks liberals. While hipsters stand on the side of the road, a patriotic woman is going places :)

Re: “Michelin head puts Haley in an uncomfortable spot

I think that the real irony here is that a higher gas tax will likely actually hurt Michelin more in the long run than if they had simply fronted the money to personally revamp the roads. Those living with poverty are already far less likely to purchase new tires or replace aging tires in a timely manner. A gas tax hike will make them push their rubber even further, and virtually eliminate their consumption of Michelin tires. Shockingly, I don't think Selleck has thought his cunning plan all the way through.

Re: “Southern Charm will return March 16

I'm a avid viewer. However, in my opinion....this show should really be a "Day Time Soap"....

Re: “Clint Eastwood focuses on the wrong parts of Chris Kyle's life in American Sniper

I could not disagree more with this reviewers take on American Sniper. "Underwhelming"..."didn't register"... really? Did we watch the same movie? How about engrossing, gritty and painfully emotional at times. I'm just thankful you weren't calling the shots on this production. Mr. Eastwood did an great job and Bradley Cooper was simply amazing.

Re: “Clint Eastwood focuses on the wrong parts of Chris Kyle's life in American Sniper

I feel like I watched a different movie than this reviewer. In my opinion the movie hit the mark squarely center mass whereas as this review was an errant shot in the dirt (puns intended). The film is brilliant. One of the best I've ever seen. Cooper makes himself a legend with this film, too. He is amazing. This was not only a riveting war movie, it was a love story, and it drew me and my 18 year old son in and gripped us tightly for two hours straight and wouldn't let go.. not even once. I actually sat in my car and cried before I drove home after watching it. Beware, the film is absolutely heartbreaking, but at the same time necessary. Epic story, epic hero, epic film. This reviewer is WAY off base and unfortunately wasn't able to make the visceral connection everyone in the dead silent theater made with me and my son tonight. We all left stunned, humbled and grateful. Bravo, Clint and Bradley. Just wow. Thank you vets. RIP Chris Kyle. -a US Army military vet

Re: “Clint Eastwood focuses on the wrong parts of Chris Kyle's life in American Sniper

I just watched this film. I was moved completely by the path that Eastwood took with this story. The simple fact is...he stuck with the story. A simple man with simple and genuine morals, a mission instilled by his father. The "sheepdog" concept never left me while experiencing this film. I love that it was very humble movie, about a humble man that had an extrodinary ability to protect others in very extreme situations. War is war. The need to glorify the blood and guts or attempt to exploit a hero that was clearly respected and did the best he possibly could to walk the good walk in life would have offended me. Thank you to all involved for this special movie experience.

Re: “Restaurant: Impossible filming in Summerville

Food Network’s “Restaurant Impossible” is coming to Summerville to tape an episode at Valentino’s Trattoria on Old Trolley Road.

The show is hosted by chef Robert Irvine, whose challenge is to save the country’s most desperate resturants from impending failure in just two days with only $10,000.

The episode will be taped Jan. 22-23, with the episode ending with a grand re-opening of the restaurant on Jan. 23 at 7 p.m. The general public is encouraged to call and make reservations for the night by calling Valentino’s.

Nicholas Smalarz, co-producer of the show, said the response for volunteers to work on the episode has been well received – more than 500 people, and counting, have offered to help out.

“A lot of people are fans of the show,” he said. “In terms of volunteer response we’ve never seen this before.

“It’s very overwhelming,” he said.

Smalarz said the show is in its 11th season on the Food Network. This episode will not only be helping Valentino’s but also the Italian Bistro on Central Avenue in Summerville, which has the same owner. However, the filmed re-opening will occur at Valentino’s.

Smalarz said the owner and staff at the restaurant are not allowed to talk to the media until five days after the show airs sometime this upcoming winter/spring.

Smalarz said Irvine typically selects places where owners are dealing with financial strains.

“Robert really just picks through things and figures out what’s going on,” he said. “We’re just trying to give a renewal for these restaurants.”

Re: “Restaurant: Impossible filming in Summerville

About the fails: he tries to right the wrongs to save the business. I did that for years in retail. Unfortunately most entrepreneurs have "healthy" egos and as soon as the specialist leaves they start backsliding to do it the way they always have which is what got them into trouble in the first place. Irvine can do the best job possible, but if the owners aren't willing to change their ways the fix is only going to be short-term.
And about his HH restaurant: We ate there a couple of times. Beautiful room, above average food and service, but the bulk of management was left to his Gen. Mgr. while he was making TV and the business took a nosedive.

Re: “Restaurant: Impossible filming in Summerville

Cid-

Feel free to drive around if you'd like, Flowertown is a nice place.

If you don't find anything, you can always do what the producers ask in the FB post:

"If interested, email Nick (nick @ shootersinc . com) by Monday, January 19th with preferred shift(s), full name, email and cell number using subject line: FN SUMMERVILLE VOLUNTEERS."

Re: “A satisfying new menu has saved Mt. Pleasant's The Americano

You don't have to have them valet your car for you. There is just limited parking in the rear which is reserved for the people that DO valet. Since the parking is limited they want to ensure that the people that do use valet will be able to get there car in a reasonable amount of time. Now that the definition and explanation of how valet works we can get down to the real issue. IT IS COMPLIMENTARY!!!! The restaurant pays the Valet Company, so you do not have to pay anything!!! It is the restaurants way to say "Thanks". Not to mention how much more attractive valet parking makes a restaurant. It is up to you to choose whether or not you decide to tip a young man working an honest job. Red Drum two doors down has the same service and I park my own car every time. I bet you tipped your bartender/waiter/waitress. But hey I bet you are from Ohio where y'all have it all figured out already.
