Re: “Sweetbreads are neither sweet nor bread, but damn good

Where do you go for sweetened in Charleston? I have googled but when I check current menus, it is not listed

Re: “The quest for Charleston restaurant bathroom changing tables

I sort of think this is a super unique problem specific to an 8 month period when food critics are new moms. Other than that... perhaps this article could've been a 45 word blurb explaining the utility of a list of restaurant bathrooms that have changing stations?
The vast majority of the population doesn't have to concern themselves with dining out and one of their party shitting themselves.

Also, this is a wildly false premise, "So why not up the service by installing a simple device that allows a meal to be more enjoyable for everyone?" Your tone is off-putting.
A changing table doesn't make eating more enjoyable for me. Why would you presume it would?? Leaving your infant at home would make it more enjoyable for me.
Do high chairs = diapers, anyway?

Re: “The quest for Charleston restaurant bathroom changing tables

Awww, you guys. <3

It warms my heart to know we have found some common ground.

Thank you, Kinsey, for your help. And, to quote redblood, "it pains me to say that."

Third on agreeing with Ron Liberté -- and it doesn't pain me in the least to say that. Consistent sense-speaker.

Re: “The quest for Charleston restaurant bathroom changing tables

I second that. Ron scores a rare goal on that one (and I am a parent that accepts that my social life is severely restricted).

Re: “The quest for Charleston restaurant bathroom changing tables

J D E, that is literally what the writer said: "If a restaurant has a casual atmosphere and offers high chairs, I consider it family friendly. FIG? No." She does NOT expect restaurants that aren't actively catering to families with kids to add changing tables.

Localhutch you have lived a sheltered life, and on what planet are kids forbidden from weddings, funerals, general meetings, and restaurants?

Re: “The quest for Charleston restaurant bathroom changing tables

Oh no. No changing tables at FIG? Good. I don't want to listen to your crying, screaming kids anyway. Family friendly restaurants should have them, agreed. But I certainly wouldn't expect a fine dining establishment to require them. If a changing table is needed, the child is too young to be there.

Re: “The quest for Charleston restaurant bathroom changing tables

If the restaurant does not have a changing table, then don't go there. Or anywher else except maybe McDonald's where they cater to rug rats. When you do the nasty, and have a baby, you need to realize that you will be socially lacking for at least a couple of years, except those aforementioned places that welcome poopy pants kids. Imagine a kid crapping in his pants and someone who has paid to enjoy their meal has to put up with that smell! Acknowledge that new parents do not have the right to force others to accept their family making and decide if a few years without fancy meals, weddings, funerals, general meetings, and movies with adults are out for a while, unless you have a baby sitter.

Re: “The quest for Charleston restaurant bathroom changing tables

The idea of putting a baby on a public changing table or those Koala Kare plastic things on the wall is disgusting, even if you put a changing pad down this is gross. The car or stroller would be a much more sanitary choice. Oh my those poor babies.

And -- The Junction Kitchen & Provisions. Bathroom is unisex but there is a proper free-standing changing table in there, and wipes! And Ms. Pacman/Galaga for a quarter?? Fuggedaboutit...

Re: “The quest for Charleston restaurant bathroom changing tables

Big ups, Kinsey!

FWIW - you can add Charleston Harbor Fish House to the "Both Restrooms" list, although the bathrooms are shared with the larger complex so you'll be carrying your little one outside a bit. Maybe multiple times in a night...so I heard from a friend...

Re: “The quest for Charleston restaurant bathroom changing tables

I think it should be part of the building code to install these in every restroom that can accommodate it. Like the writer, I got so damn frustrated whenever I dined downtown with my son before he was potty trained.

Re: “Summerville can't squeeze the facts out of sweet tea's murky history

I am 51 and from Savannah GA. My Grandma was from inland Southern GA and born in 1912..she taught me to make Iced Tea when I was about 6, standing on a stool at the stove, waiting for that point just before it boiled to turn the (gas) burner off. Then she made me wait while it steeped. While it was still warm, the tea was poured into a glass pitcher with a metal knife inside to absorb the heat and keep the pitcher from cracking. Sugar was added, it was briskly stirred, then cold water added. Then it was poured over ice. As a kid, if you ordered tea, it was brought to you sweet unless you specified otherwise. The "sweet tea" thing came about with the movie "Steel Magnolias." Grandma told me her Grandma taught her to make it. She also told me that because most of the water on the coast of GA, SC AND northern FL and sevwral counties inland) had the sulphur taste to it (well water), brewed tea with sugar added helped to hide the taste and encourage people to drink more to keep from "passing out in the heat of Summer." I have lived and traveled all over the US and Europe as an Army Wife and I can tell ya that Iced Tea (sweet tea by today's venacular) truly is better with coastal well water. I have a crew building our pool now, I have made approximately 50 gallons in the past 3 weeks. Not as sweet as I was taught and I went decaf in the 90's, but everyone loves my tea. I keep a 2 gallon dispenser in the fridge during the Summer. And I always think of Grandma when I make it. I adored her, miss her and thank her for teaching me well, at a young age...

Oh, well, there will always be Ham and Lima Beans. If you don't know what that is, ask your father or grandfather.

Yes, ignore any criticism that could make your creative thing better. That's a good idea.

I can't wait to listen to this – great idea! Ignore the complainers/detractors, they always come out of the woodwork when you do something new and creative.
