Where can I get some of those Gullah Grits? Oh yeah, maybe the Gullah Gourmet. Showcased by Oprah and doing business in Charleston for a generation. Good thing they got established before everyone started getting butthurt by everything anyone does or says.
Smh. Gullah Cuisine can be named such because they 'actually' cooked "Gullah" foods and the restaurant proudly displayed Gullah/Geechie artifacts. The owners are deeply rooted in that community and live a life that contains the culture everyday. The brewery could have initially done more with the education they want to share with the production of the beer. Now that they know this and how important it is to not just capitalize off it but teach at the time, I'm sure they will make necessary changes. Sounds like a good beer though. May have to try it!
Vivian seems so normal! Someone you could sit down with a glass of wine or beer and just talk about life and the food it inspires. Love her show.
Our society has gone to hell and a hand basket!!! Pretty soon we will become a society of mutes so as to not offend anyone! I know the character of the folks at Revelry! They work their butts off to do the right thing. If we were more like them, we would be a hell of a lot better off. Move on to more important things!
Most people dont think of Native Americans as real people because theyve been reduced to a mascot." Had these been worded a lot/some people instead of most people I would have agreed with it. I agree most people aren't empathetic enough toward the plight of Native Americans in the past and still today, but this isn't the first time this writer has sounded dismissive of "most people". Its much easier to rant than bring real change, but I'd like to hopefully think that progress is the writers intention.
So it's ok for Gullah cuisine to use the name for "mere" food, or kids to strip my palm trees bare for sweetgrass roses, but a company that actually tries to use its product to help recognize a fading community is out of line. Give me a break.
The entire local craft beer dealio is based on a catchy name. Most of the beer isn't worth spitting out. I'll bet a hundred dollar bill that everyone involved in the naming of this beer didn't know the word "Gullah" more than 10 years ago. Gullah is a local buzzword now and it's "marketed". Not even close to understanding and being respected for what it is or means. Makes me sad. Very sad indeed
@Dan Blake: ...shots fired...
This writers satire is excellent enough to make me go buy the damn sandwiches dissect them and eat them.
Those are some seriously tasty sandwiches and for a fast food, reasonably price foray into BBQ I agree its tough to beat. That being said it is not a true BBQ experience like any of the excellent BBQ restaurants we have here.
Shout out To JBS or Home team I may have cheated but I still love you.
I tasted Shrimp and Grits from both LowCountry Bistro and Queen 82 and I loved LowCountry's version and not fond of Queen 82's Version
No More hotels or apartments. Driving people who cannot afford housing in Charleston is not fair so they can work in the hospitality industry.
West Ashley, specifically HWY 61 near Bee's Ferry, has grown exponentially INSANE since 1998 - too much over-development & too much traffic to handle that historic highway - EVERYDAY it's like an EXODUS morning through evening when having to travel in either direction. And when it rains it pours & floods the neighborhood in front of my neighborhood and the one in front of that too. I've concluded that the City of Charleston and the Mayor just don't give a SHIT about this PART of the City since we don't attract TOURISTS like the PENINSULA.
So funny because I don't care about "t rav" and don't watch southern charm either
James and I were together for 3 years and lived together for two until he was moved to another state for job in March of last year.Sept was the last time we spent time together.We went for a vacation and had a fabulous time,not knowing it would be the last time I would see him.He stopped calling Nov,and just sent me a text saying he did not want to talk.I did not pursue it because I thought he just needed some space.March came rolling in,and I found out he got married.How could it be?I found out,shortly before we started dating,he was communicating with a girl from another country and made a trip there once and proposed to her.He made another trip in 2015.She finally came to the country Jan of this year and I figured the reason he dumped me was when he found out she was approved to come to the US.I made the huge mistake of going to the social media and found the womans posts of their wedding and trips,etc.That hurt me more than I could imagine.It has been 8 months since Ive seen him but just cant get him out of my head.Honestly,I feel very jealous of his now.I wake up in the morning feeling nonexistent,empty and wishing I dont wake up so I dont have to feel the same pain I could never get accustomed to.The deceit and the fact that I was used and hurt so bad that I dont think I could move past it.I decide to seek the help of a psychologist because I knew I was losing it. As I searched the internet, I found cases similar to mine and some,even worse.But all of them sang praises of a man whom helped them restoring their broken relationships,marriages and familyDr Kene Dilli. I was supprised and decided to give it a try as I contacted his email I found in those testimonies; kenedillitemples AT yahoo DOT com. Behold,after doing all he instructed,he sent me a parcel plus the steps needed as reguarding the parcel.Now,I have got back my loverJames,and he has filed for a divorce with the other lady he married. #HappyToBeBackWithJames.
I am appalled by the criticism of talent. I personally find Arby's unappetizing, but thanks to Mr. Waters, I might give it a try. You all need to learn to appreciate a good writer. I'm sure none of you are capable of writing an entire article on a sandwich. He writes with witty intent and unique diction. Looking forward to the article about the whopperito.
Dry rub IS NOT BBQ ! It's plain cooked meat, with some sauce on it. Sorry all of my fellow southerners, but you have to go north of the Mason Dixon for the real thing.
Alison in communion with Angelina and Sarah, Septima and Carrie, is a most lovely thought, inspiring a smile, and tears.
Guys, it's called sarcasm. Ya been fooled.
I'm f'n dying here. Zambezi humor is the best humor.
It's about time...all of this flooding is really taking a toll on the quality of life in West Ashley.
