Re: “Halls Chophouse now selling its signature steak sauce

Hahahaha Muskie and Sterling are from my team. Muskie, we can probably use the Harris Teeter store brand and get 4 bottles. Not a fan of Hall's at all. They have mail order meat from Allen Brothers so why not completely smother it with a sauce.

It's in there (in a parenthetical). It moved to a nice, shiny spot in Mt. Pleasant in 2006 and closed pretty soon after. Just wasn't the same.

Re: “Your Place was the best — that's all there is to it

I can't tell you how many times a month I went to Your Place when I was at CofC. I love how they always had sweet tea in big colored tupperware pitchers. The bathroom doors had signs that said "inboards" and "outboards." I still miss it all the time. Simple, to-the-point, and perfect.

So when did it close? What happened? Am I missing half the article?

Loved the vibe, the rag tag building, burgers and gals behind the counter. A Charleston original. Great article Stephanie!

Re: “Halls Chophouse now selling its signature steak sauce

I don't know much about the steak sauce since I don't eat steak on the rare occasions I am forced to eat at Hall's. But I am sure that it is overpriced and that Billy Hall shook the hand of the person who made which is enough for me to make sure never to touch the stuff

Re: “Halls Chophouse now selling its signature steak sauce

$9 bucks for steak sauce that has the flavor profile of Heinz 57 and A-1? Or I can pay $5 for a bottle of A-1 and Heinz 57, combine them together to make a sauce with the same profile. Twice the sauce, half the cost.

Re: “Holy City Brewing and COAST say 'no more dogs'

A wise man once said "this is why we can't have nice things." The management of each of these breweries made a respectable decision because eventually you will be punished for expecting Joe Public to exercise good judgment. No, morons, your shy dog that hates loud noises and gets protective on the leash is NOT the dog to bring to a noisy, crowded brew pub!

Re: “Steve Palmer and Mickey Bakst start F&B support group for drug and alcohol addiction

This is probably the most critical step that the Charleston F&B community can take to ensure the long-term growth continues. I'm living proof that it can be done as well, and it's not for everyone, but those who want and need it will take advantage, and it could be a great example for other cities!

Re: “Holy City Brewing and COAST say 'no more dogs'

A lot of people with dogs are like a lot of people with children. They tend to overestimate their friendliness and intelligence and lose all capacity to reason why there are some places it may not be appropriate to bring them. Not to mention the people that neglect their children and pets usually think the rest of society should bear the burden of those deficiencies.

Re: “Holy City Brewing and COAST say 'no more dogs'

Wow, I just read this...I thought dogs were not allowed at all inside. So I was surprised to read this. But owners should know their dogs to begin with. My previous dog, who was about 70 lbs. loved people,but did not get along with other doggies. So, I could not take her to places. Dog owners need to be responsible. They make it bad for responsible ones. I now own a Yellow Lab, who I started to train when he was a puppy. Labs, tho are so so gently anyway. He would not hurt a fly. It is a shame that some dog owners hv to ruin it for the rest of us.

Re: “Sermet's provides James Islanders a comfortable dining outlet

Your lede is confusing as fuck. I think partly because its based on a large assumption and partly because of some funky logic/wording. "JI needs restaurants because residents don't want to drive downtown for better food." I understand the fact that you think we don't leave the island because of the added inconvenience, even with the assumption that the food is going to be better. It is inconvenient at times, but a lot of people genuinely enjoy dining here. Regardless, you're projecting an opinion that may not be shared by most of the people that live here, which definitely comes off as pretentious. Critique the food as much as you want, but at least try to show an attempt at understanding why patrons come to these restaurants instead of just assuming that we eat here because its a bitch to drive downtown.

Also, to elaborate on my point about logic/wording:
You're basically saying that we need more restaurants. And you know this because you see people eating here instead of DT because of added inconvenience. This does not really prove your point. This is simply some conjecture that you came up with. So yes, maybe we do need more quality establishments and also it could be true that people settle for less for convenience sake. Both points can be true but the latter does not prove the former.

I dunno, there could be something I missed but I've read that first paragraph at least 1738 times and it still confuses me.
