Re: “Crosby's Seafood Market will close on Aug. 25 after 37 years in business

Small business owners are being crushed by government regulations, Obamacare, the economy & overseas competition. Low information consumers are quick to judge their business decisions. The Crosby's and their partners have run a quality, ethical business for close to 30 years. They should be supported for unavoidable business decisions & not blamed. They were encroached upon by urban development. Enjoy the fruits of your labor & thanks for years of great seafood.

Re: “How to get into the Charleston music scene

This is getting exhausting. Read this article in its context, people. The Royal American is an awesome local venue. But ... THIS IS A STUDENT GUIDE. A short one at that, because we're not a blog with unlimited space - we're a costly print publication. And while Royal is great, they have no all-ages shows. And while the Music Hall is also one of my faves, underagers are more likely to be drawn to dives. This was written by a college student for college students, listing "some" not "all" venues. Anyone who thinks we don't support the Royal American and a ton of other great venues doesn't read our paper anyway. We recommend shows everywhere every single week. And yes we could have done nothing but list downtown venues, but then we'd do a disservice to places like the Hive that do all-ages shows all the time and are huge supporters of the underground, underage scene. If you're not a cheap dive bar that does all-ages shows, you should not expect to see yourself in a student guide.

Re: “How to get into the Charleston music scene

It seems like this is an article aimed at incoming CofC freshmen, mostly <21. The Royal American as far as I know is 21+, as are most of the bar venues in the city. Still, JWB's comment is gold.

I will say, though, that the advice to just talk to musicians is solid. I've been in a lot of bands and it feels good to connect to people, and musicians connect with other musicians so you'll get good intel on bands you haven't otherwise heard of.

The ones throwing shade at them for selling you obviously don't understand how difficult it is to keep a small business going from the tax liabilities. I imagine if they could still be profitable and have the revenue stream needed they wouldn't be closing. It's their place and the decision was as well.
