Re: “Red's Ice House Seabrook

My wife and I went to the beach with our dog. As we left we wondered if Red's was dog friendly. They were more than dog friendly, they gave us a great seat on the deck and brought our big dog a bowl of water. Almost every customer and server stopped by our table to pay him some attention.

The service and food were really good and the staff were super friendly.

We've been back twice since then for the all-you-can-eat crab legs and loved it. The wait during summer was pretty bad (it never crossed my mind that it was tourist season until we got there), during the off-season we never had to wait for a table.

Comparing the Seabrook location to the Mt Pleasant location it's hard to believe it's the same restaurant, the vibe is so different. The Mt Pleasant Red's is much more "rustic" and like a bar that happens to serve seafood. If that's your thing great, I prefer the more open and airy Seabrook location for it's laid back atmosphere. It's mid July as I write this and I can hardly wait for September, when I plan to be back at Red's.

Re: “Royall Ace Hardware

Royal IS an amazing store with old-school service, they're awesome. But for all you people who regularly shop at Lowes or Home Depot, next time you need something, check out your local hardware store. There's usually one within a few miles, they're privately owned, service oriented(they actually know what they're talking about) and their prices are the same or better than the big boxes. I promise you'll be blown away and will become a regular customer.

Re: “Southern Season

Even with 40% off, their prices are high. I do buy very specialty items from them when cooking special meals, but everyday purchases generally come from HT or Publix. I'll definitely go to the downtown store, as it is much closer to Summerville and does not have the traffic.

Re: “Music Farm

Not the greatest place to go if you are into actually listening to music. The highs (treble) bounce all over the cavernous box, and I'm pretty sure the MO is to crank up the volume to an ear splitting level because the monkeys at the bar are yelling drink orders and clanking beer bottles. I've seen artists ask the crowd to quiet down (e.g. JJ Grey, Amos Lee), and it just didn't happen. I also noticed that they haven't come back. The vibe in there is "college party", with the music appreciators crammed in the snake pit in front of the stage.

Overall, the layout isn't conducive to having a place to post up, have space, and enjoy the music...if you creep to the back for space you're forced to observe the party-goers and their noise. Best place in town for actual "dialed in" music levels is the Pour House (except the Music Halls of course, but you're sitting down then)...the PH shows don't start until 11, so you better be a night owl.

Re: “Red's Ice House Seabrook

Our meal was so horrible that I cannot even rate it with 1 star. Meal took 40 minutes to arrive at the table, food was ice cold. Burger arrived 10 minutes later - cooked well done vs med rare as ordered. The lettuce in the grilled tuna salad was rancid and rotting. Manager comped entree portion of the meal - but worse was the attitude - she really did not care. I'm local and posting on every blog I can find.

Re: “Car Pros Plaza

The owner is a total crook. I've posted my experience every where today: I've had to file two BB complaints with Mr. Mulherin's Maaco regarding warranty work done to my vehicle earlier this year. One little mistake turned into six days of wasted PTO, over two hundred dollars worth of rentals on my dime, and my car still hasn't been fixed. This is the third visit and John Mulherin, the owner, just threatened to call the cops on me when I requested a proper loaner car for me and my two year old son. He offered a shop car that smelled like an ashtray, looked unsafe, dirty, worn, the front driver side door didn't even open... and asked that I drive that for three days til my car was ready. This is after he refused to pay $27 a day for a rental that would have been safe and clean to drive for me and my son. I am beyond hurt and aggravated that I cannot be shown proper respect as a paying customer and no one should either. His business practices are abhorrent, I'd take my business elsewhere. Oh yeah, he gave me a rock off his desk that said "Get Over It" and told me I should take the hint. Will do.

Re: “What to do when there are no more treatment options left

Reading this column and browsing the comments, I am struck by those who apparently wake up angry and give a thumbs down to the promise of life itself. What a sad commentary, actually, that the ease and anonymity of the Internet creates a stronger and yet more fractured sense of community.

To our correspondent, I simply say, "Thank you and best wishes for your future and that of your daughter, husband and loved ones!"

Well, judging from the comments, I believe you have just put the last "NAIL" in your wooden coffin.

Re: “Charleston art galleries grapple with alcohol licensing following the Palette and Palate Stroll

Simple,rather than include the spirits in the price of the ticket, just ask for "DONATIONS" to attend the event. Voluntary donations.
You are not selling spirits, you are giving it away.

Re: “Local Black Lives Matter organizer arrested at North Charleston City Hall

With a typical name like that he tells me he is either a Islamic terrorist,or someone who changed their name in the sake of Islam,or a simple "Nigger" trying to be "White"& trying to make a name for "ITSELF". BTY- "ALL LIVES MATTER"

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

Alison. Thank you for your incredible gift of words and for always standing up for what you believe in, and trying to make the world a better place. It meant so much to me when you defended LGBT students and me when we were going against the bigotry of the SC legislature during the 'Fun Home' debate. You're an incredible woman and have impacted more people than you know. Thank you and we can only try to keep making the world a better place in your honor.

Re: “Sneak peek at new Meeting at Market sports bar

Charleston Place service has a great reputation. Should be a lock. They've needed this casual concept option for years and the prices look surprisingly reasonable.

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

Alison, I don't know how you manage to top yourself every dang time, but you do - your writing is so clear, so beautiful, and so inspiring, much it would seem, like the lady whose zinely friendship I have valued for years. Thank you for the feminist t-shirts that Inky and I both wear with pride. You're a nifty number - always have been, always will be. Love to you (and your mother). Maybelles will ring.
