Re: “Mozzo

I've been there for breakfast just about monthly since they opened, and I love, love, love their bagel sandwiches and breakfast burritos. The portions are large, and they don't skimp on the more expensive parts of the recipe (lox, et cetera).

My only knock on them is that the ordering/service flow isn't logical and sometimes that means a while before your order is taken. But it is never really a "problem."

Overall: big fan.

Re: “Best Hip-Hop Club

I think the criteria was, based on the winner and runner-up: "have you ever seen more than one group of people there with at least one person of color in each while Hypnotized played."

As covered in previous CCP columns, downtown doesn't welcome the hip hop business, and it doesn't welcome the hip hop crowd. Playing songs from rap albums that I bought during the Clinton administration does not a hip hop club make.

Re: “Best Musician

Would it be possible to put Mr. Rucker in the HOF and retire his number for the sake of these awards? Yeah, we get it... the guy that has been making platinum records since Slick Willie's first term is a good singer. Beautiful voice, everyone knows it... like everyone in the United States.

Re: “Constantly asking restaurants to give freebies to charities has got to stop

I think there needs to be a line of distinction drawn in this conversation between for-profit businesses asking for freebies and non-profits asking for donations. Crab all you want about the former, but this column aims to address some important points about the latter. That is: if you have a worthy cause, you should be able to pitch it in such a way that sponsors will want to give but also that doing so will benefit the sponsor. It seems callous, but the positive PR of philanthropy feeds the bottom line, because if things aren't feeding the bottom line then where do the donations come from?

So if you're asking restaurants, local businesses, artists, musicians, promoters to give of their time, work, and wares to your cause, please show some respect and that you're looking to develop a healthy relationship. Abandon the notions that people have unlimited time and resources, and instead respect that the donations of each are important to them as well. Make it easy for them to know what you expect, when to expect it, and then do the legwork of promoting your event and publicizing their donations. Nothing makes you feel like more of a heel then seeing an event poster drop you off the musician or major sponsor list because, well, oops.

Re: “We shopped at Mt. Pleasant's new ALDI grocery store so you don't have to

Kinsey may have been going for sarcastic humor, but she succeeded only on one point. Yes I'm of a similar political mind. Yes I (as a submarine veteran) can deal in a level of sarcasm that could peel paint off a barn. Yes I appreciate jokes. I would have appreciated funny jokes here. As it is the piece reads like you were merely trolling. Savvy move, internet-focused editor.

Now down to the brass tacks: Aldi's original parent company split into two entities due to some Albrecht family dispute into Aldi Sud and Aldi Nord (that's South and North for you folks that demand we speak 'Merican in 'Merica). In the United States: Aldi Nord is the parent of Trader Joe's, Aldi Sud is the parent of Aldi US. For some unconfirmed gossip: the Mt.P Aldi and TJ's are also owned by competing members of the same family, with no small amount of bad blood engendered by their close proximity. Source: one chatty cashier, the best source for grocery-related gossip.

Re: “The betrayal of Trans America

"It's going to be hard for the administration to go after lesbian, gay, and bi people because they have numbers, they have resources, they have money. We don't necessarily have that," Williams said. "You're going after transgender people ... We're only .6 percent of the population."

Don't worry, Ma'am... the LGBs will be feeling the poison once again, soon enough, and solidarity of shafted will return to LGBT people. Sure, Trump is friends with Peter Thiel, but one asshole billionaire doesn't a coherent gay outreach make. Upside: while society will stop its march towards recognition of your true self, you will pay lower taxes. That is no doubt a massive consolation.
