Re: “Why freezing glassware is a beer geek no-no

LOL, comments that prove that article was not read is good entertainment.

"Super-cold temps numb the palate and suppress aroma" - but some people want to numb the palate and suppress the aroma and drink what amounts to ice cold, colored water.

Re: “Shockingly true tales from the world of pinball fanaticism

What Pulver left out is that he is from Michigan and he brought the scene to Charleston with him a few years ago. We us to jam the hell out of Monster Mash for hours until we either ran out of money or lost our buzz. One time I went over to his house and walked into his basement and his mom was singing her heart out to "Crazy On you" while Zach was jammin away on the guitar (Xbox-Guitar-Hero-style). His Dad was not confident enough in his drummer skills so I had to step in. We had an epic session and that's when I knew that Zach was destined to be something great. And now this article has confirmed all of my assumptions. He is the King, and the King truly abides.

Re: “I refuse to participate in a sham election, but I won't look down on you if you do

I'm just tired of having to choose between two evils. Unfortunately, in SC, it really doesn't matter, because you can put an actual rock on the ballot and it'll get elected so long as (R) appears next to its name and it invokes some magical deity at some point during its campaign (though that's optional, the R is what gets it elected).

Re: “Yep, Alan Wilson is still defending the gay marriage ban

Given that SC is party to the 4th Circuit I expect future stays will be
short-lived. The Supreme Ct might push it beyond the 20th as a courtesy.
But its settled law in our circuit, so the stay should be lifted after Wilson's appeal
is rejected. Of course one cannot guarantee anything regarding the Supremes.
And as a result of the Sixth' s divergent ruling this could be back
in the high courts lap this year. Endless.

So far so good though!

Re: “Yep, Alan Wilson is still defending the gay marriage ban

Ima nailed it... Attorney General Wilson knows that you're either in the good ol' boy system and helping it or you're out. He also knows that if his appeal cracks the 4th Circuit, as improbable as that is, or is part of the SCOTUS case that gets the Roberts court to empower gay marriage bans, he'll be on the fast-track to national GOP stardom.

So, in short: sorry gay people, but there are important political dog-and-pony shows to run that trump your rights. Warning: no actual dogs nor ponies will be present.

Re: “Shockingly true tales from the world of pinball fanaticism

I'm so happy to see interest in this article. I've been playing pinball since the mid 80's and always thought it was great and normal to play. Durning college I was too busy to realize other entertainment options had surpassed pinball. That being said the pinball community is here and inviting. If you have little skill or are an expert come out and play, in the end it's all for fun!

Re: “Sale: Answering Will Moredock

People quote Lincoln to explain southern intent on secession but it is more relevant to quote the people who actually seceded. They were clear in the articles of secession that it was the North's refusal to enforce the fugitive slave act and the northern hostility to the institution. They debated consideration of adding another reason and decided not to.
I believe the documents are on display here in Charleston.

Nice to see that Klansmen don't wear sheets these days. Now they wear blazers with padded elbows and look so distinguished!

Re: “Federal judge rules for marriage equality in S.C., but attorney general can still appeal

One need only to look at every other state where gay marriage is legalized to find a 100% hetero divorce rate, churches outlawed and nothing but vinegar-based BBQ sauce. If Attorney General Wilson relents in defense of my marriage, who knows what gay person I'll be forced to marry? Woe is me!

Re: “Husk Restaurant

Mrs cp and I finally got around to going to Husk this evening.

Long story short, in our opinion by far the most overrated restaurant in Charleston.

Mind you nothing was inherently terrible, but not a notable dish to be found. Also mindful that expectations are the building blocks of disappointment we tried to be as objective as possible ... still, most of dinner was spent trying to locate the 'great' and trying to figure out what the fuss is all about.

Things started out goodish, with a bean salad for mrs soulsea and the chicken skins for me. Granted it's a little weird having a heated salad as an appetizer but it did taste good, as did the chicken skins.

Our main course went as follows ... mrs cp is a vegetarian and we are fully aware that most restaurants we go to her choices will be limited. But in every quality restaurant we've ever dined at the chef will create something special for vegetarians, especially if said chef never took the time to insert even one vegetarian dish amongst their main courses to begin with, which quite frankly is unheard of in 2014. What was the chef's offering for her tonight you ask? Assorted grilled/fried vegetables. That's right, the chef at Husk put together the exact same dish that the chef at Outback always suggests, and they were both equally impressive.

'chili pimp you asshat it's your fault for not knowing that everything including the water is prepared in pork fat at Husk, as such it's your fault for seeking a vegetarian dish there' I hear you say. Fair enough, so let me tell you about my dish. I ordered the amberjack. Now keep in mind that amberjack is a wonderful fish, both robust and flaky at the same time, a fish deserving of being allowed to be tasted on its own merit with subtle accents to complement its texture and inherent flavor. Instead it was swimming in a sauce comprised of a cacophony of ingredients imagined in the mind of a chef that would rather overthink the obvious than leave well enough alone. Seriously dude, fish plus a few precise elements not fish and all of them. All I tasted was the soup he called a sauce and the fish might as well have been bread to the palate. Ugh!

Deserts were bland end equally too clever for their own good taste.

We're glad we went but we will not be going back.

They must have a hell of a PR dept. cause I can name at least fifteen better Charleston restaurants than Husk, and half of them are tourist traps. To go back to the original point ... it is still a complete mystery to us what the Husk fuss is all about.

Re: “Why freezing glassware is a beer geek no-no

A frozen mug in the freezer is great for those emergencies when you run out of cold beer. Also, with a little foresight it can be kept clean with a a bit of plastic wrap.
