Actually Drew. I do watch golf. The point is Tiger hasn't won a major since 2008, and odds are, he will never win another one. When it comes to majors these days, Tiger generally has a good round on Thursday and Friday and then blows it on Saturday. By Sunday, he's irrelevant except for being the TMZ sideshow freak that he is.
Washed up has-been?? He's the #1 ranked golfer in the world. You don't follow sports much, do you?
I get what you are saying. I didn't really consider it freedom of speech, as TV stations are all privately owned (aside from PBS). I just disagree with censorship in general, and feel that it should be up to the stations to decide what is allowed to be said on their broadcasts. I don't like the government controlling all aspects of this. Oh damn, I am starting to sound like a libertarian.
very tacky comment posted by Mayor above!! geez people, give the chef a chance before you blast his attempt to bring more business to your area! calma!!
"Basically, your negativity in the review stems from your own misunderstandings and lack of knowledge"
Really? I don't believe I "bashed" them at all. I apologize for not remembering the menu to the exact wording. So I didn't correctly state the sections properly. That doesn't change the fact that they separate hoppy beers, then mix in other categories. What is "mash" anyways? There weren't many specialties on there. Just some random normal brews. Honestly, it wasn't negative criticism, just a bit of confusion I thought could be corrected to help people find a certain beer. I never stated there were 5 sections, BTW.
Also, I am not exactly well versed in french cuisine, nor were the other people eating with us. No one was really upset about the egg on top, and it is not really a negative comment. The overcooked pork belly was a bit disappointing, but didn't hurt the sandwich too much.
From your knowledge of everything on the menu, and your joining this site just to attack my review, I can guess that you either work there or have a connection to this place. Why do people feel that they need to attack honest reviews on CCP? I didn't dislike this place, but felt the beer selection could use some work. I also was kind about the food, as it is a new place. I didn't give this place 3 stars because of the menu or an egg on top of the sandwich. It got 3 stars because it is a beer bar that has mostly basic beers from different breweries (a complaint I have heard from many people who have visited), and the food wasn't amazing (flavor wise, nothing to do with layout). It also got 3 stars because of pricing being a touch high. I had every intention to return after it has been open for a couple months and seeing if things were really falling into place. At that time, I would add a new review.
I am a frequent presence in the down town street performer scene. I'm gonna remain anonymous due the rediculous sensitivity of the subject. I just wanna say that this is just wrong and a true example of backwards and narrow minded legislation and legality from charleston. 1) The fact that this city is so unforgiving and closed minded towards something that has been and is becoming more and more significant in not only the charleston music & art scene but the tourist scene as well... Is for lack of a better description COMPLETELY ILOGICAL & INEXCUSABLE. There's absolutely no remote good reason (outside of greed & ignorance) that I not only have to pay an ungodly robbery of fees ($100+) for a license that's so infantisimal that the cops couldn't even tell me how much it costs (by a long shot there guess being "around 10$") when they actually decided to hassle me for no good reason that I could think of or that could be given. 2)I didn't come out and start playing for people just to make some pocket money or supplement my income in any way. In fact when I first started playing out here I quite frequently & respectfully refused tips or donations as I believed it took away from the purity and lagitamacy of my intentions and message which I adimately believe and convey.(peace, love, understanding & the underestimated power of positivity & what I refer to as the will & the way) it wasn't until people were flat out INSISTING I accept there tips that I (after much self control & patience) gave in and started graciously accepting them. 3)I hold myself to very strict professional standards when it comes to my performance. I replace and water down lyrics as well as even song choice in respect to where I am and who I'm playing for. 4)I posses a GOD GIVEN tallent to entertain a very wide variety of people which has been credited by listeners to everything from simply entertain to change someone's initial view of charleston for the better to even keeping someone from "making a very big irreversible mistake." Comparing what I do to operating a business is apples to oranges and frankly insulting. I didn't buy this gift it was given to me to use. No body taught me or persuaded to peruse music. It simply came to me by chance and second nature...this is just scratching the surface of how backwards and ignorant it is for an artist such as myself to have pay so much and pass through an absolutely unreasonable amount of red tape (almost as if the beaurocratic phillistine PRICK who's inflicting these requirements simply doesn't want us out there at all.) meanwhile your run of the mill begger, grifter, con artist & drug junky can freely sit in the same spot with their hand out and a sob story to con people out of there money. I've witnessed this and my response is WTF! Whoever is making the decisions this needs to make like computer and get with the program because this is an absolute sabatoge to the layed back and open atmosphere of charleston which about 9 out of 10 tourists come here for and expect to experience. It doesn't make sense why you can be a strait bum and beg discretely but if your given a gratuity for being good at something you love then your treated as though your some con artist or snake oil salesmen. The fact that this is even being made into an issue the city should address and regulate so much is just fucking WRONG and makes me and MANY others question what exactly are the priorities of our city government, who's really runnin the show and what exactly are their intentions for our great city. As for this musician/victim of backwards beaurocracy I end with this. You will still stop me from doing what I was put here on this earth to do when pry my intstrument from my cold death gripping hands. If that makes me an outlaw then SO be it. Why should I try to appease and comply with laws that are borderline unconstitutional and absolutely unreasonable in so many blaintant ways. Call me what you want "criminal" "vagrant" but the fact is that MANY others would call me a "freedom fighter" and a "true patriot." With that said there are a lot more people (including a significant number of charleston's precious tourists" who are much more inclined to agree with me than the deep pocketed narrow minded philistines who have put me and many other hardworking professional entertainers in the unfortunate position we are in. If any of those people are reading this trust & believe that there is a lot more of us than there are you. We care, we vote, and we are well prepared for revolutionary means to stand up for our rights and ourselves.
Is a 400 word article about Tiger Woods really the best way to quit talking about him?
Because nothing is currently gay about a bunch of dudes hanging out in the woods together in short shorts and neckerchiefs.
Mark Sanford, unbelievable that the Republicans in Charleston could not come up with anyone better than a known liar, a proven thief and a massive hypocrite. At least we will not have to hear the words "Family Values" out of him this time around. Hey - maybe that asshat from NC, John Edwards, should move down here, we love cheaters and liars and he would fit right in with the local political scene.
So the article offers a 3 year old song from an earlier release? Anyway, the new CD is AWESOME. Read the Amazon reviews!
The leadership of the Boy Scouts of America believes this proposed change is the right thing to do for God, for the boys, and for America.
They point out that no one gets kicked out of any of the participating churches just because someone says they are attracted to someone of the same sex.
They also strongly object to the idea that this proposal will mean an increase in sexual abuse.
This proposal if adopted will help boys grow with the Lord's help to become more loving and helpful men.
Gay does not mean pedophile. What is everyone so upset about?
Tried to bring my dog to Poe's a while back and was told they don't allow dog's on the patio anymore. This was a summer or two back though. Has this changed?
Not really off-topic, no.
Regulation of content is certainly an aspect of censorship - but it isn't quite worthy of the sort of heavy connotation that censorship demands. Actual suppression of ideas is a far worse notion than the suppression of the word "fuck" or a bare female chest.
Now, sure, there are lots of arguments both ways about why these things are not allowed on television, and if it even matters anymore in an age where at least 90 percent of American households are not watching over-the-air broadcasts anymore (which is how the vast majority of content regulation even got started).
Still, what no one seems to notice here is that those who want to see T'n'A on network TV at 9PM already have lots of other options to experience that, and are probably already watching them. On the other hand, there is still a segment of the population that wants "wholesome, family viewing" or whatever - and if you remove the remainder of the boundaries currently in place you are essentially marginalizing those people into smaller and smaller pockets of society. And they already feel pretty marginalized.
And the problem with marginalizing some segments of society is that it does not actually get them to come out of their shells, it can insulate them and validate them. That's why there are still virulent racists out there, and anti-government survivalists, and whatever else.
Or maybe it isn't. It could just be that I am overthinking this entire concept (which is, amazingly, not hard to believe at all).
So, yea, I think part of this is that I just have a hard time agreeing with people who say, "The Man is censoring and not letting us see boobs and hear 'fuck' and Free Speech and yada yada yada," when the concept of Free Speech doesn't have the first thing to do with any of that. It has merely been co-opted so that the concept of free speech and free expression actually gets watered down a good bit and we wind up a little more accepting of instances when speech and expression actually are threatened.
Holy crap, I've gone off an confused myself here - it made sense a minute ago. Maybe I'll eat some more tuna fish and it will come back to me. Or, maybe I'll just go finish next week's piece. I don't know.
I think an analogy is the best way to describe how flawed the current electronic system is.
Let's say that Microsoft Word is the Electronic Voting Machine.
And a hand written paper letter is the paper ballot method.
Suppose there is a small election of 200 votes and a hacker/theif manages to steal the copies of the votes. If he stole them electronically (Microsoft Word) by hacking it would be enticingly easy to be able to change, delete, or copy the information because locating where it is via computer is a simple as just typing the word and hitting the search button.
Now suppose the paper letters/votes are stolen by physical theft and now the theif has to read through each individual paper and look manually for the information he wants to change and somehow match each unique handwriting style from his own and making each piece of paper look as it hadn't been tampered with. This is a long, harsh, and tedious process that hardly can be done.
The average person and by average I mean most people aren't interested or educated into technology and software to a professional degree. Speaking as a person who has come to familiar terms with hacking and software, any type of electronically configured device can be tampered into much more conveintly with less of a trace compared to paper.
The "just fix them and change them so it's easier" idea comes from the same people who hit "I accept" instantly to an apps terms when installing it, rather than reading that they just accepted a flashlight app has permission to monitor your network history.
Sarcasm, Paulius. You can read between the lines on it. If I get around to it, I might publish some more stuff related to the film incentives piece on my tumblr - and it touches on the bizarre disconnect between what "Libertarians" say they believe and what they actually do.
But, for the most part, the whole concept of Libertarian ideology is sort of "every person for themselves", which runs completely counter to almost every tactic they use to achieve that goal. It's almost as if they understand that the entire notion is completely unworkable.
I guess gay youths will continue to get all of their irrational attitudes of submission to authority from schools and sports.
How so, mat?
Brewengineer, though the other commenter certainly showed his ass, your review really could use work. I say that because you're bashing them about things you don't even understand. I frequent that establishment since opening. Firstly, their beer menu is not at all broken into flavor profiles. They're categorized in 4, not 5 sections; ipa, locals, sessionables, and "mash". The mash is just one offs and specialties that didn't fit into the other 3. There is no "malt forward" section that you described so there goes all that griping you had about them not fitting out the window.
Secondly, that sandwich you had is called a croque-madame. It's an old French dish and meant to be eaten with fork and knife.
Basically, your negativity in the review stems from your own misunderstandings and lack of knowledge.
If BSA National signs off on this gay is ok until adulthood it will be progress. But will fall short of the need for a complete ban on discrimination for gay scout masters as well as scouts.
How not shocking that local Scout troops think we pose a demonic threat to children.
It's 2013 local Scoutmasters,, even in SC. Some of these kids are gay or will have gay friends,neighbors,teachers, co-workers or bosses etc etc. Can't lock them in the basement the rest of their lives.
Funny, The Girl Scouts have never banned anyone,so that org is immoral and depraved too?
