Re: “Crave Kitchen & Cocktails

My new go-to brunch place in Charleston. Shrimp with grits and chorizo sausage is great. The bacon Bloody Mary will not disappoint. Great casual outdoor seating.

Re: “Crossfit Integrity

Wondering about the above review. I've been a member of Integrity since 2011. The warm up is anywhere from 15 to 20 min, and is based on the WOD. Brian, the owner, is present during the classes that are being coached (which I think is awesome). If he finds that you are using poor form or doing a movement incorrectly, he will point this out, and have you drop down in weight or offer suggestions for improvement. This keeps you from getting injured, and also helps you to avoid those horrific "no reps" during competitions. If your "habits from your old box" include poor form or movements, Brian is doing you a favor by offering suggestions for improvement, and your inability to accept constructive criticism is nothing short of immature. I'm not competitive, just there to stay healthy, but I really appreciate the attention to form, movement, and the positive and friendly attitude and acceptance of everyone and spirit of community at this gym. I started at the age of 39, am now 45, and have yet to have an injury due to anything I have done at CrossFit Integrity, and I've pushed myself pretty hard. I think that speaks well to some excellent coaching. The coaches encourage you to do your best and keep going. I'm really thankful for the level of health and fitness I have achieved at CFI. I'd encourage anyone to give it a try at the community classes on Saturday mornings at 9:30 am, and see if it's a good fit for you.

Re: “Page's Okra Grill

One of the best sandwiches I've ever had. Charleston or elsewhere.

The PBT is amazing. It's got pimiento cheese, fried green tomatoes, apple-wood smoked bacon on Texas toast. Delicious.

I agree with the other reviews that it can be busy at times, I usually avoid the crowds and go a little later at night once the dinner rush is over. It means eating later, but also better service and shorter waits. Highly recommend.

Also, the BBQ cheese fries are great to snack on!

Re: “Soul2Soul: Tim McGraw and Faith Hill w/ NEEDTOBREATHE

video and light show were stunning. audio reminded me of concerts from the 70's, most of the music was amplified to the point of distortion, at times the bass was cracking and distorted to the point you couldn't here faith or tim. you would think that by 2017 we could make amps and speakers that were clear and crisp, guess not

Re: “PHOTOS: Day One of inaugural High Water Festival

I counted four Black people in over 130 photos on the HWF Instagram page. So, I checked the tags. Nope. I checked the event's advertisements. Anything about including them? Nope. And so few Black/POC bands?

Really, Charleston? Really?

Black people INVENTED the music the white bands are all playing! They are an integral part of Charleston's past, present, and (hopefully) future culture. They've suffered endless hatred, violence, and discrimination since the day their ancestors were put in chains.

Charleston: HOW MANY MORE ATROCITIES AGAINST YOUR FOUNDING NEIGHBORS HAVE TO TAKE PLACE BEFORE YOU START TAILORING EVENTS TO THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY?! Do y'all really need another church shooting before you're ACTUALLY "Charleston Strong"? Have y'all forgotten about standing thousands strong in solidarity with your Black sisters and brothers after the AME massacre on a bridge named after a rich, gentrifying snob? Do y'all remember saying 'never again'?

How does anyone hold a festival after something like that -- let alone, the hundreds of years of violence and oppression against Black people -- AND NOT INCLUDE THEM?!

Because of its history of violence and oppression of our Black sisters and brothers, its white residents should stop using words like "exclusive" when marketing these events. From their inception, ideas should create just as much space for Black faces as they do for white ones (I'll capitalize 'white' when we deserve it), especially when it's held in the next to-be-gentrified corridor of the area.

I'm not calling it's organizers and marketers racists -- I'm calling them thoughtless, and thoughtlessness breeds the "how could this have happeneds" of the world.

If you're white, it's your responsibility to police your thoughts, speech, language, and actions for privilege, and to FIX IT. If you're white, you've been racist. Even if you don't don a sheet or burn crosses or terrorize or kill Black people, you've done it. We're white, and because we're white, we've all done it. I have.

However, "I didn't mean it THAT way" isn't an excuse. It's a slap in the already mercilessly beaten face of Black humanity. Maybe if we whites TRY to include our Black and POC sisters and brothers -- our NEIGHBORS, upon whose backs and souls this entire country has been built -- from the beginning, we'll actually begin to change it.

Re: “The Agenda: Chs. tries to minimize horse spooks; Roof now on federal death row; New Orleans dismantles Confederate monuments

Dlylan roof is obsessed with the Confederate flag? I think liberals are more obsessed with it. The AME murderer had a 3" by 5" flag on a stick. Execute the punk for what he did, but stop using his pale behind as an excuse to remove historical markers and the flag.

Re: “The Agenda: Chs. tries to minimize horse spooks; Roof now on federal death row; New Orleans dismantles Confederate monuments

Liberte, I like to think that the taxes they use for these renovations is recouped by the income taken in from taxes on the properties, and money spent by tourists who visit the hotels and refurbished beaches.

Re: “Best News For Horses

no. the logic i would use is horses are work animals and have been forever. because some folks feel otherwise is fine. but at the end of the day it's an animal. i make my dog sit for a treat everyday. am I to be reprimanded for doing what the animal wants to do? get some food?

these animals are loved. do they get spooked? sure. like my dog every time she sees a squirrel.

300 years is a blip in nature. so yes, i would say it was fine 300 years ago it should be fine now.

Beach erosion is a natural geological process. What is unnatural is taxpayers constantly being forced to subsidize wealthy ocean-front homeowners and hotels.

Re: “Best News For Horses

That's the logic you want to use? "It was fine 300 years ago, so it should be fine now!"

Then again, that is the official state motto isn't it?

Re: “Emanuel AME pastor speaks out against campaign ad challenging removal of Confederate flag

"it was the murders of nine black parishioners at Emanuel AME Church by an avowed white nationalist that spurred South Carolina lawmakers to take down the Confederate flag that flew outside the Statehouse in Columbia."

The attack was blamed on White Supremacist rhetoric and Symbology, IE: the flag, and its removal was with the intent of reducing racial violence. Since its removal, there have been more instances of racial violence, not less.

Re: “Best New Farmers Market

Need signs and balloons on the street so those stuck in traffic see there is a market going on. Last week there were hardly any people there and the ones there mostly said they were there because of soccer practice, not because of the actual market. Shame they couldn't put simple signs or balloons by 61!
