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

"financial contribution"

How much? Approximately what percentage of the sales of Gullah Cream Ale and/or other brews? Specifically?

Also, which organizations, specifically, are you helping with time and/or money?

With the release of the can next month... all of our resources, including but not limited to, our venue, time, ability to reach a wide audience and financial contribution are all on the table, but most important to the corridor, is expanding its reach to achieve it's mission of education and engagement and how we can help them with that mission. As stated above, we would love to have help from passionate people and would be glad to get you involved, as well.

"Additionally, prior to your comments, we met with the Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor to discuss ways in which we can employ our platform and product to assist the Corridor's mission. If you would like to discuss ways in which you can join us to preserve this history, please contact us."

Fair play.

Thank you, sir.

Speaking specifically, in what ways is your company employing your platform and product in order to benefit the Gullah community? I'm curious; that's all.

Re: “Cool off with beer news Revelry and Holy City, plus Ghost Monkey and Two Blokes openings

Pronghorn, our tasting room manager let us know you called. Thank you for your concern for the preservation of the Gullah Geechee culture. We share that concern. Our cream ale is a pre-prohibition style ale made with local heirloom grains. Looking into the history of those grains, we discovered the deep connection they had within Gullah Geechee culture. We felt inclined to pay homage with the name, Gullah Cream Ale. Additionally, prior to your comments, we met with the Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor to discuss ways in which we can employ our platform and product to assist the Corridor's mission. If you would like to discuss ways in which you can join us to preserve this history, please contact us. We're sorry that our press release about our gold medal win was misconstrued. At best, the timing of information could've been better.

Re: “Cool off with beer news Revelry and Holy City, plus Ghost Monkey and Two Blokes openings

I just cold-called and spoke to a very kind worker at Revelry. I told him to alert a manager there about the comments section of this article; so hopefully we'll get a response.

Re: “Cool off with beer news Revelry and Holy City, plus Ghost Monkey and Two Blokes openings

At this point, Charleston City Paper will bury this article; never allowing it to appear in the "Recent Comments" section. It's either that, or "Comments Closed" (no debates allowed).

Can't take a story backfiring on them, I guess -- even if the response they weren't expecting is completely justified.

Revelry should be ashamed about this matter, and aim to right a wrong.

I won't forget about it, though. You know me.

"I encourage conscientious beer drinkers to do the same."

But I drink to not be conscientious. However I am not above engaging in social and economic protest out of guilt. You have my support.

Re: “Cool off with beer news Revelry and Holy City, plus Ghost Monkey and Two Blokes openings

I support local brewing (as much as I can, given the Lowcountry's offerings), but I refuse to drink Revelry's insultingly named brew. Ever. Plus, I will encourage others to do so for the same reason.

I will reverse my stance if Revelry decides to donate (more than a token) of the profits from this beer to the Gullah community in some form.

I encourage conscientious beer drinkers to do the same.

Re: “How John Lewis gets his Texas Hot Guts sausages to snap

just to hope I was not talking out my ass I visited Lewis BBQ today. as i would not stand in line for anyone's cooking i drove on a rainy Sunday to do it. even then I waited 15 minutes behind 8 people to order. the line isn't about the quality of the food it is about the lack of ability by the front of house.

as i sat in line i looked around and thought of the irony that this smokehouse is near Romney street and all i saw was a bunch of white people who looked like they came from the beach and golf course. not those who will help you make it through the winter months.

as a cook for over 20 years, 10 of them here in Charleston, let me say this. it's fucking meat. the brisket? not mouth watering. and i even asked for an end cut to get the "smoke". beyond that the "hot guts"? yeah, kielbasa with more heat than is comfortable.

this will be a nice space for a rave club when it sucks "Home Teams" exhaust and closes. i don't know about Home Team, but a homegrown franchise gets my vote over some dude with a bunch of press we have seen since they started welding their cookers so many months ago.

Austin? hope it's music is better than the food hype. BTW. Ask Chicks Fry House and it's Beard award winning founder about gentrification on the neck..

Re: “Hotly anticipated restaurant Le Farfalle opens Friday

Prong - please note the crispy potato vinaigrette, I believe this will be perfect for you as a substitute for the usual delicious fries. Also if you decide to fall off the vegetarian wagon, note the Ham of the Gods, Pata Negra - the Beluga caviar of hams, the Jamon de Iberico. This will be my comfort food place as Mike does not do meh only excellent. Plus if I lose the food and beverage police that accompany me everywhere, I can double down on the Jamon and Octopus.

@Pronghorn
Capunti is also vegetarian and we would happily create a pasta and sauce combo you would enjoy.

Best,
Michael Toscano

Re: “Hotly anticipated restaurant Le Farfalle opens Friday

Regarding the pasta: are there any vegetarian options aside from the gnocchi?

Can one mix and match pasta(s) and sauce(s)?

Since before the Pettus Bridge, John Lewis has been a beacon of justice.
