This is hard to watch.
It's the Neck, always has been. You think you can rename it because you own a building there?
Regardless of what we call the area, thrilled that CBX & Company bringing more beer to the area. Let's all drink a few together! Congrats guys. Welcome to the hood.
Kwadjo is not happy with all of this ruckus.
When this "committee" who comes up with names for places decides to invite us to the table, maybe we'll stop pushing NoMo. I own a building up here and have a pretty loud platform for getting the word out, but we were never included in the "official" discussion.
We'll be painting a "Welcome to NoMo, home of the City Paper" on the side of our building one day and that will cement NoMo in the lexicon once and for all! It's a war people, and we think it should be named based on geography and ease of communication and not on some bullshit idea for what a place could potentially be in the distant future (ie. creative corridor).
North Morrison is just fine. Takes up a little more type space, but is familiar with locals, and easier to find for tourists. The area is still a little bit "hoody" but maybe the local gendarmes will patrol the area more often. All I can say is for the new bars and eateries to not keep much cash in the drawers, and make drops into the safe a regular habit. Most folks around here use plastic. And the wait staff needs to keep their tips stored some place other than their pockets. Just sayin'........
How Bout, North Morrison like it has been called for 50 years? Is that not hip enough?
I hated the NoMo at first...but now I'm ok with it. Denver has a NoDo. And it's better than The Neck...which is what it was called a few years back. We can live with NoMo. Let's rally, folks!
Foodmancing, names for areas should be descriptive first and/or have historical significance as opposed to being "creative". Whether in NYC, SF or here in Charleston (Upper King, Lower King, KGB, East Side, Avondale, The Neck, Old Mt. Pleasant) there's no need to go reaching for some wacky moniker to fit. You may not like NoMo, but at least it places you where you are. Last thing we need is to call it something meaningless like Xanadu or Atlantis. As for the "Creative Corridor" you need to get off that train. Too much can change too fast. Look to the Upper King "Design District" designation for evidence of that.
I thought we all agreed to stop calling it NOMO?
I second the stop with the NoMo BS. Least creative name for the "creative corridor" you could come up with.
No mo' NoMo! Seriously. Stop trying to make it happen.
Awesome guys. Congrats
I had soft shells yesterday at Poogans Porch and surprisingly they were really good. 2 large soft shells served over a bed of arugula salad tossed with a light citrus vinaigrette.
So? How was it?
Were all the crabs sauteed in flour?
Last time I was at Macaroon (Boutique, on John Street, right near 39 Rue de jean), they had great baguettes (and other French goodies, especially their croissants; the owners,too, are French.). RHB
You can get browns courts delicious baguette with every cup of amazing homemade soup at Persimmon Cafe!
Will they be selling them May 4th? I only ask as I fly back to Charleston May 4th...
Baguettes make good caprese sandwiches.
Thanks for the reinforcement, Styrene_poly!
