General FYI: For those of you that aren't a fan of the bier card and/or don't want to learn how to use it, Bay Street has all of the amenities of a normal restaurant/bar. All of the beers at the the tables are in fact available behind the bar. The only beers that require a bier card purchase are those at the craft beer tasting wall (which consists of 6 rotating unique and harder to find craft beers). Additionally, the non-communal tap tables do not require a card and are "activated" by a server. The staff is always eager to help those that want to learn how the system works and learn how to pour their own beer. The card and tap tables are meant to be an educational tool but it is obviously not for everyone. For those that aren't interested in the tap system, there is food, liquor, wine and a huge beer selection that you can easily order the "old fashioned way." PS: the "get a life" comment was not an inside job... but this is :) We hope this clears up some confusion. Prost!
12 Apostles, 12 on a football team. Get it? Tigers aren't mentioned in the Bible, Gamecocks are. Remember the chicken curse? Now it's Clemsoning. The media and entertainment industries are generally atheistic. So are many academicians. Also world class hypocrites. But then so are we all. Christians who are really true to their faith do not make good hedonist. And good hedonist are good consumers. You know, the kind of people who provide the market for the products and services that advertise in the CCP. That is not to say Chris is wrong about proselytizing. What Dabo is saying is that if you are Jewish, Muslim, agnostic, atheist, etc., Clemson doesn't want you on the team. And that's just not fair..
As to separation of church and state. Last time I looked, charity was a religious virtue. When the state starts providing for the poor, the lame, the sick; is that not charity?
Cebedenbaugh - all the states have a health insurance exchange - the Federal government is having to run those where the states have decided not to create their own. Funny enough, it is the mostly states that are great proponents of "states' rights" who have decided to not create their own exchanges. Many of those same states have also decided not to expand their Medicaid programs with Federal funds, so the working poor - who don't make enough to qualify for exchange subsidies but too much to qualify for Medicaid - are left without any insurance at all. Classy "solution" for those who resist anything Obama-related.
As the solicitors cry foul to Beatty's speech saying he is biased, me thinks they protest WAY too much. He stated he was against corrupt solicitors, not ETHICAL solicitors. If the thirteen solicitors were acting in an ethical manner, they would have nothing to complain about. Given their response, they are incriminating themselves and need to be voted OUT because, clearly they cannot be trusted since they are fighting oversight. Starting with Ms. Wilson, of course.
I thought SC did not have a health insurance exchange. What is this site linked to above?
Scrap it and implement something that will save people money. For everyone who will be getting subsidized coverage there are just as many more who are going to be charged a lot more in premiums and not be able to afford health insurance. Waste of time and money for something that has been predicted to be and proved to be a complete failure in doing what it was sold to do.
It's frustrating because if you want to order a beer from the taps throughout the restaurant you have to use a prepaid card which charges you by the oz even if only foam comes out. Also hard to view the selection of taps when the restaurant is busy also feels like you're intruding on other customers dinner if you want to go get a specific beer. Then if you want to order from the bar or waitress you only have 13 beer options total. I see what they were trying to do but didn't quite enjoy the experience.
I enjoyed Bay Street Biergarten's beer selection but have to agree with the others that the prepaid card is a scam. Watch out for the free pour, the get you by charging you for half of a glass of head each time a keg is changed. I paid 60$ for a card and was denied my Bombay Sapphire gin martini at the bar, which is unacceptable. And also, what's the deal with the community tables and the fact that one person has to pick up the whole tab? That's not how a community table operates. I like how the poster 'easydoesit' gives the restaurant 5 stars in order to bash a fellow reviewer. That smells of an inside job. Hilarious! In other news, the beef jerky was great!
I agree with the previous commenter about the prepaid cards. For such a vast selection of beer, why am I only limited to 13 options when there is probably 100 other drinks they can make behind the bar. If I’m going to pay you $40 without having a single drink, I’d appreciate you giving me a heads up next time.
Best Gullah food around. All the rice dishes are great, especially the gullah rice. Fried chicken almost as good as my mommas.
don't forget lowcountry artist market on saturday for free at the music farm 10-3!
Just use schealthconnector.org. No reason to fumble with the .gov site or make a trip downtown.
Great Job Chef Frank and the entire SNOB team. You all should be so proud, and places with such pride are why the Market district is such a fabulous place! From ken and the Burwell's Team... way to go!
Good to see some additional enrollment options for Charleston area residents. I have a FREE quote engine available at my website that will estimate subsidies and show all premiums for all available plans at: http://schealthconnector.org/south-carolin…
This was vacant office space that the city of Charleston offered for free - it is not being paid for by federal tax money.
Yes. Everything; everywhere; any time.
Accelerate through the speed-humps. Hit horse-drawn carriages and pedi-cabs.
Bring back Bull Street Gourmet, because the new place fucking sucks.
Put the F/A-18 back on the front of the Yorktown.
Please clean Colonial Lake now.
"The truth is we should be absolutely honest about our nation's history, and we should never whitewash it for the masses, no matter how good it makes us feel." etc . So when do you begin? And when do you start calling out your other likeminded peers?
How can you review a place if you didn't eat there, didn't mention the beer/cocktails and your only criticism is that you can't use the prepaid car at the bar?
Get a life.
This seems like expensive real estate for a taxpayer funded initiative. Also the location is inconvenient to those that would be signing up for ACA coverage. Typical fed government move-no business sense.
