Re: “VIDEO: Stephen Colbert and Sturgill Simpson take over Charleston Waffle House

Drove past that location at 5 AM everyday for about 12 years on the way to South Windy for the morning show and never saw anybody fun there. Bastards.

Anybody wonder why nothing lasts in that spot? Got to be some bad juju in that transition. I'm no bible thumper but I think I'm going to Burwells.lol

Re: “Lagunitas to convert Southend Brewery building into tap room and event space

I hope their beers are over saturated with hops. That is definitely an un-tapped (ha ha ha) market.

Re: “Bill Murray, Mike Veeck, and Brad Creger's Food Truck-O-Rama is happening

I doubt the parking they plan to have will suffice considering the crowd other food truck parks I've seen have attracted. With them being right off the exit, that would be a HORRIBLE place to bottleneck...Hope they can make it work since it's a great idea and is around the corner from my office!

Re: “5Church's offerings are perfectly pedestrian

We sat at the bar, had 2 cocktails, ($25) read the menu and got out. The cocktails were very good, but, bored by the menu. Have not wanted to return.

Re: “Lagunitas to convert Southend Brewery building into tap room and event space

Best news ever. What a tremendous upgrade this will be. Lagunitas is craft-oriented, while at the same time benefitting 50% from international titan Heineken, so this amazing change should be here to stay. Finally somebody's going to put that facility to good use. This is an utterly tremendous boon for the East Bay scene. Southend – albeit local – brews horrible beer; Lagunitas is (after Mendocino and one or two others) one of my favorite West Coast breweries.

I'm over then moon about this.

Finally, good beer will be coming from this location. Rumor has Roanoke, VA as new East Coast distributing landing spot.

Re: “Oak Steakhouse rolls out new happy hour menu

I had a young man who was a sous chef at Oak as a tenant in my rental property.
He told me that Oaks kitchen was positioned over the century plus old sewer system that ran under the property. This resulted in a huge problem with rats entering the kitchen overnight trying to eat the byproduct of the grease trap (steak drippings, fat etc.). Traps were unsuccessful and poisons were not allowed. The rats would fall into the grease trap and drown in the grease. So they daily scoop rats out of the grease trap before they fire up the ovens and broilers.
He assured me that they never got near the prep surfaces or food storage.
But I still figure that makes me uneasy about that high priced burger and fry for happy hour.
Rat meat sliders anyone??.

Re: “5Church's offerings are perfectly pedestrian

Too bad the bar staff is so incredibly slow. If they have more than 5 people in front of them they cannot handle the volume. And this is at brunch when they aren't three deep. Hire some experienced people and they might have something.

Re: “Lewis Barbecue unlocks its doors Tuesday — here's the menu

If you can do brisket at home like Mr. Lewis then what in the hell are you doing on here?

Maybe I drink the kool-aid maybe I don't. I had his brisket (last summer in the summer series) and I've had it at HTBBQ and Swig and Swine since. Its not even close how much better JL is. It's a hefty price but its worth it.

Re: “Two Boroughs Larder closing after five years in business

unfortunately Charleston looks at quality restaurants like Doritos..."they'll make more". turn 'em and burn 'em but economics is soon to catch up with this. no longer do you have Johnson and Wales Grads to choose from, nor can anyone in back of house f&b afford to live downtown, be creative or start their own business'. Enjoy your McDonald's with oysters people.
