Re: “The top Charleston beer stories of 2014

Folly Beach Brewpub is no longer in business (afaik). Oak Barrel Tavern in Avondale is Brewpub #3, by my count. Cheers!

Re: “Motobar revs its vegan engine, but peters out short of the finish line

The chef at Puree was fantastic, classically trained, 4 years. Her Portobello Burger with Lentils was incredible and I still think about them. She went back to Italy or Spain as she had a opportunity to run her own place, I believe she was Italian. They also had a fabulous classically trained pastry chef there for a while.
This is definitely not like a Puree - no comparison. Eric was pretty close to my own opinion on what I ate at Motobar and I ate here twice as I always give a second chance. Both times for lunch and both times just kinda meh. The drinks were nice though and the smoothie my kid had was good.

Re: “Keeper of the Wild gets an extension on its move-out date

I have made a donation and hope others do. That said, I would like to see the Forestry Commission make a straight out donation of the land to Keeper of the Wild as there could be no better use of the land than making it a home for animals in need.

Re: “5 ideas from transportation planner Gabe Klein’s Peninsula Mobilty Report

Because putting empty streetcars onto busy streets will help.

A.) Streetcars are for tourists (who walk in Charleston).
B.) Nobody will drive to the peninsula, wait on a rail/trolly, just to be dropped off 6 blocks from their destination in 97F heat.

Mobility in Charleston has to be car and pedestrian focused... Even though it's not sexy.

Re: “Unbroken is a 'triumph of the human spirit' story that forgets the spirit

I would agree, except the book did the exact same thing. It was about 375 pages of suffering with only maybe 4-5 pages dedicated to Zamperini's incredible post PTSD transformation. Of course Hollywood skipped the spiritual portion, however if you read the book Hillebrand did as well.

I hope this review is off base! I loved Puree and we still weren't ready to keep that reataurant going.

Re: “A Christmas message for atheists

Marianne, I don't think anyone has a problem with what or who anyone prays to. Thor, Jesus, Ganesh, Allah...whatever you're into, go for it.

There should be no state religion in the US, though clearly the US was established by Christians of European origin. There should be no penalties or benefits resulting from one's religion.

Litigious atheists are making very extreme stands anytime anything public-funded rotely touches anything to do with religions (Christians, generally). This seems counter productive to me.

Re: “Hot Wheels Skating Center closing Dec. 31

The Lowe Family ran the center in the 80's. Don't know who owned the property but Mr. and Mrs. Lowe ran the skating rink and Wayne Lowe and Tommy Hill were the skate guards. I know there were others, the Bostics ran the concession stand. Many great nights spent there over the years. It's sad to hear that they are being shut down for whatever ends up being there. Can't imagine what James Island could possibly need that is family oriented and beneficial for the kids. Yes, lets bring Hot Wheels to West Ashley so the kids still have a safe place to go.

Re: “A Christmas message for atheists

And I just wonder how many of you intellectual folks have actually READ Jefferson's essay on "separation of church and state"? Like most folks in the grand USA today, you don't even know about the Federalist Papers. Go do your homework. Learn something instead of being spoon fed by the internet and the media.

Re: “A Christmas message for atheists

You know what just doesn't make sense to everything all of you have posted? If God doesn't exist, then why in the devil does it bother you so greatly that someone else prays or speaks or worships him? DUH.

Re: “A Christmas message for atheists

Your assertion that no one could knock raising money for Foodbank". The very important point re this is that the money will have a Tag on it. If the church donates anonymously, then it would be no big deal. But the money will be seen as coming from them and adds to their recruitment potential. GET IT!

Re: “Motobar revs its vegan engine, but peters out short of the finish line

You said best: "In a town that's surrounded by farms providing amazing produce, there's really no reason to resort to "faux this" and "faux that." One could argue that some of the best bites around town contain no animal products and consist of only the finest local produce." If you choose to offer vegan food, show me all the tasty ways to enjoy foods as they naturally come....just like I enjoy a good steak as it naturally comes.

Re: “Motobar revs its vegan engine, but peters out short of the finish line

I love motobar! I took a couple of omnivores there, and they loved the vegan sausage in the grits. I do agree that we need a healthy vegan restaurant with dishes made out of whole-foods (better than sprout!). However, sometimes I crave comfort food that makes me reminisce of my childhood. That's where motobar steps in. Additionally, it's a bar, so of course it is going to have the vegan equivalent of bar food...not fancy dishes made out of whole-foods. I really hope they succeed and that we get an upscale vegan restaurant next!

Re: “Motobar revs its vegan engine, but peters out short of the finish line

I am very surprised but this review. The food is always amazing at motobar. To call it mediocre is very far fetched, and as someone who has tried pretty much all of their different dishes, it seems like the writer of this article is simply a picky eater. I suppose everyone has a right to an opinion but vegans, please give this place a chance. It's fabulous.

Re: “Phuong Restaurant

I am an Afro-American male from Philadelphia, PA and have eaten Vietnamese food for forty years.
The Pho was very tasty, service great: only the second time being served by non-Vietnamese waiters. Although the Pho was very good I have never paid $9.99 for a medium size bowl of Pho. I would eat there again.
