Re: “Charleston councilman argues alleged voting violation should kill West Ashley bike lane vote

That's a stretch. I'm not for the bike lane at all, however...

The quoted section on the rules of order refer specifically to attendees of the meeting, in person, in the room. They do not in any way imply that the meeting cannot be attended via telephone. If they deem that the phone was an issue, then it's not Williams' vote that is at issue, it is the rest of the voters for violating the rules or order.

Re: “Edmund's Oast gives customers a way to show kitchen staff some love

random thought - if you leave a 6 for the kitchen and some underage staff members drink it are you liable? And if I buy the kitchen a beer, why should the House make a profit?

Re: “Edmund's Oast gives customers a way to show kitchen staff some love

That's very nice. But is it really that customers aren't invited to give honest cash to the cooks? If a 6-pack of beer is a legal gift, wouldn't a small pile of Lincolns be OK?
I'm all in favor of getting away from the front-of-house tipping system. I know servers think they work hard, but for my 20%, most of them are living the life of Riley. I'd rather see them working at a straight hourly rate, with the good ones getting a higher wage. Knowing that a waiter makes $35K is disheartening when cooks get minimum wage.
So they squall. "We have to get a bunch of money when we're on the floor because we only work 6 hours." Well, the paradigm can shift. Staff could work 8 hours apiece at a rational wage - best-qualified/paid people can serve up front and prep salads when traffic is slow.

Re: “Lessons I learned from Alison Piepmeier

Just stumbled across Alison's last column and your response while checking my email and as a retired teacher was touched by both.

You have truly honored Alison by your writing. There is no greater joy for a teacher than to have had a positive impact on your students. Alison obviously had a positive impact on you and you no doubt are having a positive impact on others. Well done -- and may you continue to do so in the years to come!

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

Alison, your academic and personal impact will last such a long time in so many ways and places. But nothing will replace your energetic can-do attitude or your "full frontal" feminist presence. I will miss you.

Re: “Local emcee says the Holy City scene needs more unity, support

Exactly, Ima. Music venues in bars are businesses that sell drinks and sometimes have cover charges. Bands are a means to get the cover charges paid and drinks sold.

If the "music community" can support each other enough to show up at each others' shows and buy enough drinks to make a profit for the bars, then great. If not, it's all just wanking into the wind.
