One of 99%!
I have been coming to Charleston for 50 of my 50 years of life. I have lived here now for almost 10 years. I make it a point to eat at least twice at as many places as I can. I had not visited The Wreck until this past weekend. The wait was long, but buffered by pleasant service the door and while we waited on the dock. The food, yes, it was expensive but spiced well and cooked nicely. (Triple platter for me and shrimp for my date.) Being so close to the creek with the minimalist atmosphere, I would have expected rock bottom prices. (see Bowen Island for instance). It's a nice little diversion, but if I want Shem Creek atmosphere I'll go the Shem Creek Bar and Grill. If I want great SOUTHERN seafood, I'll go to Awendaw for the Seewee Restaurant.
To not include the state museum is a shame. http://www.museum.state.sc.us/
Also, there are plenty of small town local artist shops like: http://mcclellanvilleartscouncil.com/ that should be relished and taken note of on these rainy days. And while not exactly my cup of tea, one of the most popular SC artists has a gallery in Denmark: http://jimharrison.com/thegallery/
My point is, SC has so much to offer the artisan, benefactors, and aficionados. Why would anyone advocate North Carolina over local?
IF the bars have to provide that service in conjunction with the officers, then I'm all for it. A bit of shared responsibility between the city and the "Late Night Entertainment Establishment" would be a good thing.
I hope the same rules apply for the Spoleto events too?
Sanford had South Carolina fall on the sword because of his refusal to accept federal dollars while he was a Gov (Federal stimulus money to keep teachers and emergency responders employed) and a Representative (returned millions of road paving funds when SC had the highest % of unpaved roads in the nation). We are a poor state that needs infrastructure and teachers funded. I could care less about his personal life, I'm more concerned for South Carolina.
PROUD to have seen her a few times (but never enough) here local and even prouder of the fantastic job they did on national TV. Take note folks, these kids are destined for greatness!
